Avacyn Restored: Hope is Restored!

Greetings, Magic players!  In addition to our Facebook Event pages (Midnight event: here, Regular event here), I'm posting the details for our TWO Avacyn Restored Prerelease events right here on this blog!

BOTH of our events are Helvault events.
How do you open the Helvault? You might recall that every Prerelease, I distribute a set of "Achievement" cards for you to fill out.  This time, they're actually important!  Every THREE achievements you obtain, I will be breaking ONE seal on the Helvault.  When the last seal is broken, the Helvault breaks asunder and we feast on the sweet, gooey innards (Disclaimer:  Contents may not be edible)

1) Midnight Madness Avacyn Restored Prereleases:

Start Time and Date:  12:01 a.m., Friday, April 27th.   Players are strongly advised to arrive during the half-hour prior.  Or come for FNM and stay for the Prerelease!

Product:  Six (6) Avacyn Restored Booster Packs, and one (1) Prerelease Promotional Card (while supplies last).

Rounds:  Each 8-man Pod will play 3 Swiss Rounds.

Prizes:  Two (2) Avacyn Restored booster packs are placed in the prize pool for every entrant.  These will be distributed to the Top 8 based on standings.  In the event of multiple pods, relative standings between pods will be ranked and prizes awarded to the combined Top 8 finishers.

There will be no side event drafts for this event.
