Well, things are letting up and it seems that some LGS events are beginning to pick back up.
Below is a list of LGS's in the Upstate SC area(I know of at least) that are hosting some events! It's only a few so far, but I hope the list gets bigger. I really do. I wanted to at least get these out there into the wild with the intent of helping these guys bring in more people. Anything helps, right?
I listed the XRVR events because they're hosted online and anyone can attend them. I know, I know. Usually I reserve things for just the Upstate but, during these weird times, I figured all options would be welcome. Plus, the midlands are my old stomping grounds.

WIN Listing: https://win.wizkids.com/event.php?EVENT_ID=274886
Registration 10-10:45AM; play begins as close to 11AM as possible.
All players must be registered with WIN (the Wizkids Info Network) and must arrive with 1-3 Modern-legal WK or ROC maps. Pre-registration for the event through WIN is encouraged, as that will help Boardwalk plan. Expect to fill out a build sheet; legality will be confirmed during the first round. ROC Build Sheets can be found via the ROC Toolbox page: https://roc.ionsuite.com/index.php?route=information/information&information_id=12
Play will include a number of 45- to 55-minute swiss rounds determined by attendance (probably 5), followed by single elimination rounds (probably 2 or 3). Look here for the current ROC tournament rules: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zUydqSGkS8WTseP1-HbNOJVes_nXJXKU4yALyKKsxYY/edit
Battle Royales will be available during the single-elimination phase, or possibly after the main tournament, based on attendance, interest, and time. Battle Royale fees will be $15.00 for a regular booster event or $20.00 for a Colossal (X-Men Animated) booster event. Each Battle Royale pod will receive one booster per player to draft from (these boosters do not belong to the individual players who open them); the contents of those boosters will then constitute the main prize pool. A boxed Heroclix LE or ROC Battle Royale Map also will be part of the prize draft. Here are the basic WK Battle Royale rules: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/battle-royale/ .
