Moose Jaw GAX is hosting an official Catan Canada National Qualifier Tournament.

The Qualifier will be held on Saturday, July 13.

LAN Registration: $25.00 if you register before June 28th, then it goes up to $30.00! This gives you general admission for the weekend, Pizza Party, and a reserved seat for LAN or CONSOLE gaming.

General Admission: $15.00. General admission gives you full access to the event, and Pizza Party!

ALL registrations made before June 28th will be entered in a draw for a $50 gift card of their choosing from Steam, Xbox, PlayStation, or local board game store!

Early online registration is recommended if you are a PC or CONSOLE gamer as seating is limited

Door prizes will be drawn on Saturday evening, while the Pizza Party is happening!

BUT WAIT… THERE’S MORE!

The Moose Jaw Gamers are looking for your help. We want to bring Cosplay to Moose Jaw and we invite you to come out and join us Saturday July 6th during Moose Jaw Sidewalk Days.

We have access to the foyer of the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre and are making space available for cosplayers and their organizations on July 6. In addition to the foyer, the MJCC also has 2 large dressing rooms that are available for use. So while everyone else is struggling to find some relief from the heat, your booth will be chilling in the AC.

At this point you might be wondering about cost? The Moose Jaw Gamers will be picking up the bill! We are, however, asking for your help in promoting our charity fundraising event, Summer GAX. We are hoping you can distribute GAX cards while in cosplay. With your help we hope to make more people aware of Moose Jaw Gamers Inc., what we do, and bring more people into our Summer GAX event the following week.
