    My apologies for the triple post. There was an error in the original posting, and the second posting was deleted before I could fix it. At this point, can the moderators please clean up the first two posts and just let this be the official tournament post?

    Unfortunately, I'm 1) NorCal, and 2) unlikely to be competitive-ready by the 16th. But I wish you the best!
    Twenty years from now, fifty, a hundred, nobody will remember what games we played, or who won or lost.
    But that's okay.

    Out of respect for Team Stickbug, we will not be running P4A, as they will be running it at the same time. The eight people rule still applies. If eight people want to come by and play P4A we will run a tournament. However, we are trying not to directly compete with Stickbug, especially because they have been really supportive of us opening this venue.

    I say we throw Melee and / or Brawl into this.

    NJ is Smash central, and I say why not?

    I'll try to make it for Marvel. If I do go, I can bring a setup -- PS3, ASUS Monitor, Chairs, & a Table (if necessary).

    -- orso

    chairs and table will be unnecessary (well we may be able to use the chairs just for hanging space) but yah, any setups you can bring would be awesome

    I really wanna come (even if I am pretty shitty) But I was wondering what time you think the tournament will run til? Public transportation puts an unfortunate time limit on my tournament goings.
