Grasshopper's G40 Invitational (OLD THREAD)



  • Oh…

    For those who are flying in to Toronto… there are two airports:

    YYZ ( Canadians use funny unusual airport codes! ) which is Pearson, which is well established already on this thread - 40 mins away aprox from the down town core, all airlines ( give or take )

    YTZ which is Toronto Island which flies directly to the downtown core. Air Canada and Porter Airlines fly in and out from here, but it is limited on destinations.

    Just thought I’d point this out for those who are visiting TO for the first time.

    Yes, but YTZ is very limited in both flights and hours, and limited to short trip planes, so it’s usually not a consideration.
    YYZ is the primary airport.

    PS: Everyone uses funny airport codes. That’s how airlines communicate worldwide. 😉



  • I need everyone’s help on this one, so busy and I’m not that versed in air travel in and out of Toronto…
    Hey YG, it’s me, Gernot from Vienna/Austria (alias B4hET on YouTube)!

    As you know, I try to come to your tournament at the FMG Con in September! There are some questions I want to ask you…
    I would take a flight from Vienna which would arrive on Friday, 22nd at 5.30 pm your time and want to go back on Tuesday, 26th at 10pm your time (from YYZ).
    Do you already know when the tournament on Monday at the Cliffside Bunker will start and approximately end?
    Which public transports do you have in Toronto to get to Oshawa nicely and not too expensive and do you know/ recommend any hotels or (better) inns in Oshawa (also maybe the cheapest I could get) from where I can get smoothly by foot or by public transports to the FMG Con? Maybe you have any friends or anyone who can put me up for 4 overnight stays?
    Because I’m a student and therefore I have to keep it reasonable, so I really need the cheapest options available (except for everything depending the Tournament of course)!
    I can bring some pieces, chips, dice and other stuff for A&A too, if you have not enough for setting up all tables.
    There’s only to things preventing me from joining your tournament for sure right away:
    Firstly it depends on the funds I have to bring up for the whole trip including the Flight, Tournament, Public Transports in Toronto/Oshawa, Accommodation and food/drink for all days! The only things where I could save money are the accommodation and maybe for tickets for public transports.
    Secondly everything depends on the amount of people joining the tournament! Assuming that there are, let’s say less than 10 people joining the tournament - what will you do then? Will it be anyways then, with less tables? Because if I book the flight and hotel and I buy the ticket for the FMG Con (as well as taking one day of vacation because I’m working on Saturdays), I have to definitely know that it will be held on this weekend…

    I’m sorry for all my annoying questions and a very long email and I hope you will have some suggestions for me, because I really would love to have the chance to join this amazing tournament!
    By the way, sorry for my bad English! 😛

    Best wishes and looking forward to hear from you!
    Gernot “B4hET” Müller
    Vienna/Austria

    PS. May I ask how I can call you by first name, I it doesn’t cause problems for you? 🙂

    Travel and Accommodations info here : http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=39360.0
    (includes travel by transit and/or car from YYZ)

    We have 12 confirmed registered for the convention that are on the Tourney list, so it is a go for sure.

    Travel from YYZ/Toronto to Oshawa : Go transit to Whitby station, then Durham Region Transit (Bus) from Whitby GO Station.
    Travel from the venue to nearest hotels : There is a bus that travels up and down Stevenson Road (stop available at Stevenson Road and Rossland Road which is a 5-10 minute walk south of the venue) if I’m not mistaken that would get within a couple minutes walking distance to the 3 hotels I’ve listed.



  • I just offered him free accommodation at my place… problem solved.

    Thanks for the info James.

    Hey all,

    I just registered as ‘Gernot’ for the FMG Con '17, I’m from Vienna/Austria (on YT my nickname is “B4hET”) and want to get put on the list, please.
    Also I wanted to say again how thankful I am for Grasshopper giving me Accommodation for these days. This is so generous, I can’t tell you enough. Thank you!
    I’ll get you some stuff from Austria (whatever you may be interested in, if it’s food I can take with me or anything else) at least, if not even paying for these days - I don’t want to bother anyone.

    Thanks also for everybody giving me information on this thread depending travelling and so on. I’ve already found a flight, which I might take - just have to secure vacation in my workplace.
    I’m very happy getting the chance joining this tournament!

    16 people (noted on the original post) have registered their spot at www.fmgcon.com/register!

    That means there are only 8 slots left! When they’re gone, they’re gone as there is no more space available after that for the tourney!

    Hey Kris… I know Desert Admiral has an account here, so you won’t have a problem sending him a personal message. I don’t know much about your teammates, but I know that they are mega excited to be coming to Toronto and playing in this event… that’s for sure.

    Good Luck.

    YG, quick question, who sets up the game? Are the players responsible for their own, or will it be pre setup?

    Might be an odd question, ive never been to a tournament, thanks.

    Yes, I will have a small army of volunteers helping me setup tables Friday night, so games will be ready to go by 10 AM Saturday, and will last until 9 PM. Sunday is a little different because it’s a shorter day, but all tables at the Cliffside Bunker on Monday will be set up and ready to go for a 10AM - 9PM medal round.



  • Good stuff YGH, our team will see you at the Medal Rounds!

  • We will be the “Desert Posse”
