Keith Loveys Memorial
This event is held each year in memory of Keith Loveys who passed away in September 2003 (aged 54).
Keith was known for always coming back from a bar with two pints of ale (this he assured us was only to save time) in honour of this the Keith Loveys Memorial is a drinking tournament where players are required to consume a minimum of 2 pints and 4 units of alcohol per round (there is a soft drink alternative available for those unable or unwilling to consume alcohol).
The winner of this event is not necessarily the best Magic player...
