Lodging and Travel

To make your weekend easier, we would like to provide lodging at the hotel attached to the venue if needed. After staff is finalized, we will determine what everyone needs and get it booked for you. Expectation should be two judges to a room, and we’ll try to honor whatever requests you have

Additionally, to facilitate travel for staff traveling great distances, two tiers of travel sponsorship are available to apply for, which can be used to reimburse your travel costs; the travel sponsorship award amounts are $100 and $200 reimbursement. Receipts for travel expenses, such as flight, gas, tolls, or meals, will be required to receive your travel sponsorship reimbursement. Travel sponsorship recipients will be notified of their award at the time of staff selection.

Option 1
75 prize chips per day on staff (72 prize chips can be traded for a draft box of Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty)

Option 2

A small number of judges will be accepted as standby and will receive free entry to the main event or two other events of their choice if not activated.

Setup & Other Volunteering

The HBMO also needs additional volunteers to help with some of our preparation including collating swag bags, and event setup on Friday. We have a small team of volunteers already, but if you’re willing to help out please let us know.
