About this event

Welcome to the application page for the Las Vegas community judge conference for the Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty set release. This event will be Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022 – the day after the set’s print release – at a location and time to be announced in early January. The event will be in the Skybox room at Sporting Life Bar and Grill (7770 S Jones Blvd) starting at 4 p.m.

This in-person event has a cap of 12 attendees, and is limited to Judge Academy members in good standing from southern Nevada, northwestern Arizona, and southwestern Utah. US-West region judges will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Because of the attendance limit and nature of the event, we cannot accommodate digital-only participants of any kind. The goal of this event is to allow judges native to the Las Vegas Valley and surrounding areas to meet up and learn from one another in a semi-formal setting.

This is a Judge promo-supported event. All approved attendees will receive a packet. Applications will remain open until the day before the event.

This event will be operated in accordance with all COVID-19 restrictions and mandates as set out by the state of Nevada, Clark County, and the city in which the event is held

For questions about this conference, please contact John Hornberg on Facebook, Twitter, or via email through his profile on his website.
