BRING DECKS. HACK CORPS. SQUASH RUNNERS. WIN STUFF.
This is a preliminary tournament for Bring Another Brit to Worlds, organised by the Android Netrunner Player's Circuit. The top 1-3 contenders (depending on tickets sold) will win a spot at the Grand Final on the 23rd of October, and the winner of THAT will receive a subsidy covering costs for the Netrunner World Championships in Minnesota. This is the first ever BABW event (maybe the first tournament of any kind?) just for women and non-binary people, so if you'd like to see more events of this kind in the future then please please please come along and prove to me that this sort of thing is viable.
If you don't think you'll make top 1-3, please come anyway! In addition to the BABW final spaces available we'll have a bunch of other prizes. The size of the prize pool depends on the number of entrants, and we'll announce each prize in the Facebook event as we confirm it, but I can confirm right now it will be ~big~. Prizes won't just be for the highest-ranked competitors on the day: we'll be setting some aside for the best players in the least used factions, the jankiest/best-themed decks and anyone competing in their first ever tournament. You'll almost certainly come away with something.
If you'd like to help out with this event in any way (we're especially looking for judges right now), want to donate something to the prize pool or have any other questions, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out BABW.net to see the rest of the qualifiers coming up over the next couple of months, and this group to find about the regular women + NB meets in London.
Last thing: if you're a cis man, please don't buy tickets for this event. I'm not going to be asking for confirmation of anyone's gender at the event, because as a trans woman I know that shit's triggering, so please don't ruin that good faith by crashing an event that isn't for you.
