It was another great BCW Challenge during the January 26th Friday Night Magic at Alternate Universes in Blue Bell, PA. About 30 players took a shot at taking down Todd Stevens, Jim Davis, Tannon Grace, and Ross Merriam. While several players took home a t-shirt for winning a game of their chosen format, every participant received BCW Elite Deck Guards just for challenging a Team BCW member.
On Saturday, the SCG Open in Philly was a packed house with almost 1,000 players in the team event. Tannon Grace, Brennan DeCandio, and Caleb Durward were a team for the weekend. They finished Saturday with an impressive 8-1 team record. The team of Jim Davis, Todd Stevens, and Jody Keith were also a team for the Open. They finished Saturday with a respectful record of 7-2 to make it to Day Two. Ross Merriam’s team failed to make the Day Two cut, but that was not the last to hear of Ross on the weekend.
On Sunday, we saw Tannon/DeCandio/Durward make it to the Top 8 as the second seed, and the team of Davis/Stevens/Keith finish just short of the top 8 in 13th place. Tannon/DeCandio/Durward would battle all the way to the finals of the event and just fall short of taking home the top prize and the trophy. It was a great day for Team BCW, but it’s not done just yet. Ross would not be outdone by his teammates. He entered the largest Classic event held last weekend (Modern) and would fight his way to the Top 8 of the Classic. Ross finished the Swiss rounds with an impressive record of 8-1 to lock up the second seed of the Top 8. He battled his way to the finals of the SCG Modern Classic where he won!
Stay tuned as Team BCW will announce another huge “Retweet to Win” giveaway on Thursday, Feb. 1st at @Team_BCW in recognition of their huge weekend in Philly!
