February 28-March 1 — MACE West — Asheville, North Carolina

MACE West is born of a demand by some Hickory region gamers who felt that the MACE concept would do well in Western North Carolinas area. Jeff worked with Clint and Jodie Black of Pinnacle Entertainment Group to organize a smaller 3-day event of gaming and fun. The concept was to be something like MACE, but smaller, but also a little larger than mini-mace.
