Bring the Eh Team to GP Toronto!

Hey everyone!

Matt Mendoza here. I'm 1/4th of Canada's premier MtG podcast The Eh Team. I'm here with my castmates Jay, Jeremey, and KYT along with our producer Kyle and former host Scotty Mac, because we want to meet you at GP Toronto!

Why Toronto? First, it's basically local to Kyle, Scotty, and KYT so we have access to free room and transportation. This keeps our costs low and means we have to ask you for less. Second, it's the first GP organized by our sponsor, and KYT's employer, Face to Face Games, and we want to bring all the hype to their first Grand Prix. Last, it's a great place to record content.

What's that? Content you say? Absolutely! We don't just want to meet you, we want you involved, and, for those who can't make it, we want to bring you the Eh Team GP Toronto experience!

So, with your help, we'll bring you:
1. Live, on-site Eh Team recording and Q&A session with a special appearance by former host, Scotty Mac.
2. War-time audio pieces from those of us battling in the main event. 
3. Live streaming on Twitch all day Friday, including a live draft of Jay's cube, group MTGO testing, interviews, etc. 
4. Much more!

In addition to the content, we'll have giveaways and contests!

Contests?!

Oh yes! For every $25 you donate, you'll be entered to win one or more of:
1. A seat at our draft of Jay's cube on Friday.
2. Jay and Scotty will sing a song of your choosing at our karaoke party on Thursday.
3. Jay's partnership in the Duels for Dinner event.
4. Playmats, swag, and anything else TBD! Follow the updates to the giveaway pool here !

Also, we're open to ideas. So send 'em if you got 'em.

So, this is our goal. How does your money help?

As I said, we've chosen Toronto as it keeps costs low, but some are unavoidable. Here's where your money's going:

1. Jay and Matt's plane tickets. After being unemployed for four months, Jay finally has a job, but his finances are tight, and flying within Canada is expensive. While my flight is much cheaper relatively, I'm currently a freelancer and a student who is about to get married, so tuition and wedding planning have taken their toll on our budgets. Jeremey has a sweet gig working in the oil fields in northern Canada, and the rest don't have to fly. Simply put, we need the most help.
2. Entry fees for main and side events.
3. Cards needed for decks. Now, we're going to borrow as much of our decks as possible, but some purchases may be unavoidable. In these cases, we'll get great deals AND, any card we purchase with these funds will be given back to you listeners on future episodes of the Eh Team.
4. Food. We have to eat.
5. GoFundMe fees.

Additionally, we're donating any excess funds or prize money to Gamers Helping Gamers or another similar charity. We have no desire to profit off of this trip monetarily; we want to meet you and make awesome content for you to enjoy. 

Our timeline is two weeks as it allows us the opportunity to make all of our arrangements before prices begin to rise.

Magic  means a lot to us. I began playing about 20 years ago and my life would not be same without the fantastic people or great opportunities it has added to my life. Making content has also been a passion of ours. We are eternally grateful for your donation, however large or small, and we hope to personally thank you at GP Toronto!

Forgot to say that I won't be at GP Toronto, so if I win a Karaoke song, I will transfer my winning rights to Slick Jagger ( or whomever the fuck you choose, how will I know?) cheers!

Take my money and transmute it into beer. Then consume that beer to vicariously bring me happiness.
