After years of running tournaments, Ed is retiring from the UK Melee scene. Over the years he has put a lot of time and money into gathering the largest collection of CRT TVs in the world, extension leads, a stage, projector screen, tables, chairs,  consoles and other essentials for running the Heir tournament series. He is not currently in a position where he can give these away for free.  He needs to recoup some of the money he spends on renting out the storage every month, and to get back some of the value of the storage contents. He's not looking to get all of the money he's paid for the equipment, but he's willing to hand it over for £2500.

We have talked with Ed and he is prepared to hand over the storage to us for this price. We are planning on running a new summer major tournament with these TVs. We have talked with a potential venue, and we can likely run a tournament this summer. We can't run one, however, without access to the supplies that Ed has.

Ed is guiding us with the planning of the event, sending us his contacts and guiding us. Getting this equipment would be by far the fastest way to reestablish a university based campus major like heir.

Other tournaments would also be able to use the TVs for their events throughout the year too. If this goes through, these TVs will be essential for running Regen 2019.

Anyone who donates £10 or more towards this will be noted as a "founder" of the event. This will be put on your lanyard and you'll be thanked in person at the event.

"Saviour of UK Melee" wristbands for everyone who donates at least £20.

Anyone who donates £100 or more will receive a special surprise at the event itself.
