I just want to inform you guys about the upcomming german national championship which will be held on 11.08.11-14.08.11 in Iserlohn.
Suprisingly there will be a highlander tournament with a moderate prize-payout ( I think its similar to the Highlander Grand Prix value).
I recommend to check the site Information Site to get updates or further informations.
So if you planing to go there make sure to look at the local meta since there is a very active highlander scene.
EDIT The TO of the tournament agreed to lower the entry fee to 15€ instead of 20€. Great news.
