Here's a little MTG tidbit we received as a Press Release: "Some interesting and exciting news came out of a 2HG PTQ in Canberra, Australia this weekend. Why should you care about a PTQ in Australia, you ask? Well, the female duo of Ellie Filler and Emily Jehne successfully took on all rivals and won an invitation to PT San Diego! After playing in her first sanctioned match at a Time Spiral prerelease in September 2006 Ellie was hooked. She continued playing in other sanctioned matches, including multiple Friday Night Magic matches, Australian State Champs and even a Geneva PT qualifier in November 2006 before grabbing a friend and taking a stab at the 2HG PTQ. More interesting still is the fact that her friend Emily had never played a game of Magic: The Gathering prior to entering the tournament."
