Spicy Tejo Tournament - Bogota 2022

This proposal is for MetaCartel to host a “Tejo Tournament” in Bogota for attendees of DevCon and friends of the MetaCartel.

WTF is Tejo :thinking:

Tejo is the national game of Columbia ( Tejo (sport) - Wikipedia ) where teams of players compete in a corn-hole type throwing game, where the pucks are filled with gunpowder :boom: so effectively you are playing exploding corn-hole… (yes, I know it’s awesome)

Benefit to MetaCartel :hot_pepper:

Exposure to the local Colombia Crypto community, a chance to invite talented developer teams from DevCon and build connections with them, curated guest list that brings the Meta Network together for another coherence building event, content from the event can be used in social channels, on our new MC home page, and to give the members of the DAO a place to come together during the DevCon week.

In addition to Tejo and good food we plan to invite local representatives of the Colombian Crypto community to do a panel discussion with us on the impact and utility of Ethereum based token and applications, this will be a chance for us to learn from a segment of the population that is ripe for adoption and has a strong need for the decentralized technology we are developing.

Complete with food and drinks of the region :plate_with_cutlery:
