This year, like every year, we are looking for volunteers to help us run the event and make it the best we can. There are lots of things we need help with, and for those that have not volunteered before, there is a document explaining the different jobs/tasks that are required.

If you are interested in volunteering this year, I need you to fill out this volunteer application form. There are not a lot of questions, but it will help us better prepare and be more organized.

Here is a link to the volunteer document if you wish to take a look before filling out the application form.

If you have any questions or problems with the form, please let me know.

Thanks!

This year we will be introducing our first solo tournament for League of Legends!  If you think you have the skill to come out victorious using nothing but your own skills, this tournament will be a perfect showcase of your abilities.  If this interests you, check out the tournament rules, and sign up now!  

The schedule for this tournament has not yet been decided, but will not conflict with other tournaments.

Sign-up ahead of Fragapalooza 2016 with your Teams!!!!

We announced the following last week with the Rocket League post:

We are also pleased to announce that we are currently accepting signups for all of our announced tournaments!  You can sign up for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Overwatch and Rocket League over on our tournaments page.  You must be logged in and have at least one paid seat for Fragapalooza 2016.  Buy a ticket while early bird seats are still available!

But thought we should post it all by itself! New to Fragapalooza 2016 event is the ability to pre-sign up for Official Tournaments through the website itself! This does many things for you and Fragapalooza together:

  • Lets you pre-set your teams and be ready to battle it out together without the mad rush of doing so day of the Tournament
  • Lets Fragapalooza know how many teams to schedule and get those schedules narrowed down well in advance to let you and your team mates know when you will be playing
  • Lets everyone know how many teams will be at the event and which teams those will be
  • Lets Fragapalooza determine if we can officially hold the Tournament if there is a minimum team count required

So please, get your teams registered, paid and then signed-up for the tournament(s) you wish to participate in.  As always Contact Us with any questions, concerns or anything else on this or any other matter.

Today we launch Fragapalooza 2016 Merchandise on the Fragapalooza website Store. You can now start a new cart of items you want to pre-order for pickup at Fragapalooza 2016 event held August 4-7, 2016 at the Leduc Recreation Centre.  Only fully paid completed purchases will be ordered and the cut-off for orders will be July 9, 2016.  We have a big selection this year of items, including favorites like T-Shirts and Caps, as well as a list of lots of new things.  The full item list is as follows:

  • Fancy Geek Sheet (Embroidered T-Shirt)
  • Plain Geek Sheet (T-Shirt)
  • ** RvB Team Shirts (T-Shirt)
  • Gamer Uniform (Hoodie)
  • Fine Threads (Polo Shirt)
  • Mobile Shade Gadget (Ball Cap)
  • Hydration Retention Device (Coffee Mug)
  • Flexible Art (Mouse Pad)

** The design of the RvB Team Shirts is currently under wraps until Fragapalooza 2016 has reached a Paid Participants count level (its a secret!). Just know they are worth the wait, but if you or people you know what to see and have pending seats or have been waiting to register, get in now to enjoy the benefits of Early Bird (ends July 3, 2016) purchases as well as help unlock this Special T-Shirt Design Achievement!  We aren't stopping you from ordering the RvB Team Shirts, just making a little fun game of it for the masses!

Today we are happy to announce Seating will be opening soon.  We are having a RvB theme this year, so if you want to be on the R or the B you might want to stick in the seating that matches (and that is the only teaser we are giving today on that part of Fragapalooza 2016).  Seating will be opening in the following order:

  • Special Event Registrations (Extra Life 2015, etc) - June 30th
  • Early Bird/Holiday Sale Purchases (including Clan Gathering/Holiday Gathering fully paid by July 3rd, 2016) - July 4th
  • General Admission Seating (including Clan Gathering purchased on/after July 4th, 2016) - July 10th

As you can see you still have time to get those EARLY BIRD seat purchases paid by July 3rd to not only get the Early Bird bonus prize draws but also get to select your seats earlier than everyone else!

If you are interested in participating in this tournament, please take the time to read our general tournament rules for this year as well as the rules and format for the Overwatch Tournament.  Both of these documents are a work in progress and may change before the tournament starts.  You may provide feedback on the documents themselves.  Due to relatively recent release of Overwatch and the lack of a standard tournament format for the game, this tournament's rules may change more than others between now and August.

Please note that this tournament will only proceed if we have at least 4 teams signed up at the start of the tournament, tentatively scheduled for the evening of August 5th, continuing on August 6th as required.  Also, we will be planning on running this tournament simultaneously with the previously announced CS:GO Tournament, so participation in both tournaments will not be possible.

We will be announcing more tournaments as we get closer to the event, we look forward to seeing you there!

*EDIT*

So, the totals have come in and we at Fragapalooza are going to DOUBLE our original donation amount.  As such, we will be donating $252 to the Red Cross for the relief effort in support of those affected by the fires.  We are happy to hear that the town of Fort McMurray is out of immediate danger from the fires now, and hope all those affected can start to rebuild.

Please remember that you can still donate by clicking on this link.

Thank you to everyone who registered during the week and drove our donation amount up.  


 

Fragapalooza is more than just a LAN party.  We are a community of gamers from all walks of life, and from all over Alberta.  Currently our community is suffering a terrible loss with the wildfire that is threatening to destroy Fort McMurray this week.  Thousands of our friends and neighbors are losing everything they own.  As such, we would like to donate 10% of all registrations from now until Wednesday May 11, to the RedCross relief effort in support of those impacted by the fires.

To register for Fragapalooza 2016, simply go to https://www.fragapalooza.com and create an account.  Once you have Purchased a Seat and completed the registration process, Fragapalooza will donate 10% of your registration to the Canadian Red Cross.  We will do this for all registrations that come in between now and next Wednesday – May 11.

Even if you do not have any plans on attending Fragapalooza, you can still donate by going to this website - https://donate.redcross.ca/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=1951&ea.campaign.id=50610&_ga=1.232829662.159742497.1462376821
