When it comes to running Magic the Gathering events the right way – there’s no substitute for hard work and the right attitude. Here at the Hairy Tarantula, we’re constantly updating and refining our event process to provide you, the customer with the best possible tournament experience. If you’ve never been to a Hairy Tarantula PTQ before I implore you to come on down and see what Kelly, Tommy, Seth, Jay, Matt and the rest of the Hairy T crew have cooked up for this event. If you’ve already been to a Hairy T MtG event you probably won’t need much convincing – our results/past events speak for themselves.
