Red River Rumble GT 2023 official announcement! March 17-19, 2023!!

RRRGT Logo 2023

jazzIt’s official! The Red River Rumble GT 2023 has been announced! The dates to mark on your calendar are March 17-19, 2023! There are a few changes this year so read on!

The biggest change this year is that the Red River Rumble GT 2023 has changed venues from a hotel conference room to my official Man Shed! If any of you know me then you’ll know that I’ve been working on my latest addition to my house since May 2022 – the Man Shed! It’s a 1200 square foot building that I have been wanting to build for a while now and when my pool crapped out last summer I decided to finally pull the trigger. Because the venue isn’t as huge as some other venues I will be capping the participant list to 22 people. Please understand that this event will sell out so if you’re interested sign up and pay as soon as you can! The Red River Rumble GT is one of the best GTs in the country and for the 6th year running it will be no different this year! If you’ve been here before then you know that you’ll want to be apart of it so sign up fast!

The other big change is the entry fee! Normally the cost of a GT is around $50 per person. As you know the biggest portion of the entry fee goes towards the payment for the venue but since I own the venue that fee is no longer existent! That means the entry fee has been dropped from $50 to $35 per player and 100% of the entry fee will go right back to you – the players! You’ll get it back in the form of prizes and handouts, custom dice, shot glasses, and maybe even some tacos!!

There will be plenty of parking and there are hotels nearby for anybody coming from out of town. You can expect the same great things that have come to be apart of the RRRGT – open bar will be open all weekend long and you’ll get the same 5 awesome games as well as swag, handouts, prizes, raffle, and more!

If you’d like to be part of the Red River Rumble GT 2023 then don’t hesitate and sign up! You can email me at redriverrumblegt@gmail.com to get officially added to the list!

Long live the 9th Age!!

Here’s what you can expect for the 5th Annual Red River Rumble GT:

We will be using the latest points adjustments / rules updates that were made in the latest 9th Age update. Download the latest army books, rule book, and arcane compendium to get the latest points changes.

– Olde World Trivia!! Brush up on your knowledge of Warhammer and 9th Age lore because Olde World Trivia is back! Throughout the entire weekend I’ll randomly be asking trivia about the lore of the world and the first person that can answer correctly will be rewarded with a gift card! Just like that! I’ll be doing this as long as I have gift cards so make sure to do some studying!

– Raffles / Prizes! All weekend long you can put in your raffle tickets on various boxed sets / blisters / models and at the end of the GT we’ll draw all the winners! When you sign up you get 3 raffle tickets and each ticket after that is only $1 each! For every 5 you buy you’ll get a 6th one for free!!

Custom Apparel! appparelI’ll have various colors and sizes of RRRGT apparel for sale and will be for sale as long as supplies last. I’m not taking pre-orders on any of this because I’m not sure how many I can have made on time. If interested these shirts and hoodies will be available at the judge’s table as long as they last! I’m not certain on pricing yet but they’ll be affordable, I can assure you that. Also, I will be accepting credit and debit cards for anybody that would like to purchase apparel or raffle tickets all weekend long.

This Grand Tournament is one of the best you’ll ever attend – you have my word on that.
