As you can see the main dates for your diary are as follows:

15th Jan – Cambridge

19th&20th Feb – Reading, Dublin, Nottingham and Dundee

26th Feb – Manchester

12th Mar – Birmingham

I hope you’re not previously occupied on the weekend of the 19th and 20th Feb because that is one bolt-load of PTQs! For those in and around the midlands it looks like the Reading-Nottingham combo will pay off. Things get more interesting for Dublin and Dundee as traditionally the Irish and Scottish PTQers would travel to one another’s events with all the English thinking they’re both too far away. Will they make arrangements for a special overnight flight or will these two PTQs simply be easy fodder for their respective locals?

I, myself, plan to be at Cambridge only but Reading + Nottingham + Manchester + Birmingham serves as a nice backup plan :p. Another thing to note is that only Cambridge occurs before the release of Mirrodin Besieged – this means that the Extended metagame will change extremely quickly over the one mega weekend so you should bring all the cards you could conceive playing with you.

What are your thoughts on the PTQ schedule? Which of these are you planning to attend?
