So the second annual Southern Ontario Open (now referred to as SOO) has just concluded.  It was an epic weekend.  The first SOO was  a Masters that brought in 89 players.  This year Tim and Matt have expanded.  It started with Iron Gauntlet on the Friday.  Masters on the Saturday cutting to top 8 and the finals for both on the Sunday.  They also had Speed Machine and Spell Draft.  With Iron Arena running 24 hours a day!
