Game Grid Lehi is the first Game Grid location to become a Wizards Play Network Premium Store!
I (Jordan) just wanted to jump in here and give a huge shout-out to everyone on the team at Game Grid Lehi.
We literally would not be Premium without their hard work and the love & dedication they have for our store. Over the past few months(!) I’ve been spending the majority of my time working on the infinite projects required for us to be WPN Premium, from tearing down the castle (thank you Will!) to reprinting, re-positioning and reframing all of our posters. In general, I’ve left a bit of a mess behind – as a matter of fact it got so bad that Skyler would rejoice when I was out of the store for more then a day and he didn’t have to clean up after me. 😛
However, all of those projects would have been worthless without the exceptional job our team has done running the day-to-day operations. They’ve been running the events, keeping the store clean, getting cards for all of you and more, and at the same time squeezing in every project, lending a helping hand and just in general being absolute rock stars.
Additionally I would like to recognize Zach for stepping up. Even before the craziness of the last few months, Zach has been taking on more at Game Grid – he essentially ran the shop when Brielle and I had our first kid, Kira, this past October. I think we can all agree that Zach is pretty great and I look forward to seeing how he continues to grow our community as the official Manager of Game Grid Lehi.
And, of course, a thank you to all of our players – regardless of how many tools I left out, of the paint still drying and the sound of the drill interrupting their game, you all have still shown up to play in our events, meet up with friends and have fun together. I can’t promise I won’t disrupt your games anymore, but I did want to say thank you for your patience and support.
Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t also take the time to thank my wonderful wife, Brielle Bird. Not only did she give up on ever seeing me outside the store, she also spent many nights and weekends pitching in to help us become Premium. Without her eye for design, attention to detail and commitment to building the best store we can build, we would never have had a shot at even applying to be a Premium location.
Alright, you made it through my Thank You speech – here’s why WPN Premium is such a big deal!
Guaranteed WPNQ (Pro Tour Qualifier) events every season!
At Game Grid Lehi we will make sure that you, our players, all have a chance at winning these unique and exciting promos.
We don’t know exactly when they’re going to show up (it’s only been 3 days!) but we’ll keep you in the loop and make sure that we have great events planned for everyone.
And I solemnly swear, with Richard Garfield as my witness, that the promos won’t just end up in Skyler Hanks’ cube.
Unless, of course, you let him win 😛
