Alright you Northern Virginia players, or really anyone in the norther east coast area. Time to pack up the cars, get your Battlefoam or KR multi-cases all nice and snug and head off to West Nyack, NY for the The Battle for Salvation Grand Tournament this is one of the better tournaments run out of the New York area and worth the gas and admission fee ten fold. Sadly this year I won't be able to attend due to family constraints but I will be there in spirit that's for sure.
The Battle for Salvation is an independently run NOVA-style Warhammer 40,000 Grand Tournament taking place Columbus Day weekend in 2012. The Grand Tournament will feature 6 games over 2 days. Players will be sorted into 8-man brackets at the end of Saturday based on performance. Players will then battle for supremacy in their respective brackets on Sunday, with all players guaranteed 3 games (no more single elimination). Prizes will be awarded to the winners of each bracket and the winner of the top bracket will be crowned Tournament Champion. In order to register navigate to the Registration by clicking HERE.

Here is a video put up by Fritz 40K explaining the venue and the events going on during The Battle for Salvation.
An if the venue and 6 games was not enough to get you out of your chair and going. If your a huge fan of NOVA Open, the winners will also earn a spot in the 2013 NOVA Open Invitational. So seriously, If you don't have plans for the weekend of October 5th-7th I would highly recommend you book up now and get out there. You won't regret it, I know I already do for missing it.
