Why should I come?
- We have anime confirmed to be coming out from MTL, so if you think you can play GG, BB, Ultimax or Skullgirls, you're in good company.
- This venue is currently the heart of the Ottawa Melee competitive community, as we've been running monthlies for ages now. We had 72 entrants for Melee Singles last month.
- Ottawa doesn't get many big events, and this one is the biggest we're capable of. Nearly every community on board to help out.
- College campus. Lots of pot monsters. Fo sho.
Without further ado, the games we're running:

Yes. It's free parking. All day.
How's the venue?
Well-ventilated and roomy, but please remember to shower and wear deodorant.
There should be plenty of electrical for your own setup... also Starbucks.
Yes. The plan is to run two broadcasts, one for Melee and one for HD games, both featuring commentary. More info closer to the date.
Am I forgetting anything?
Probably, the thread will be updated regularly. For local players, you can stay updated with all Gonq events at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/algonquincgc/
All of Ottawa is on board for my gross misuse of student tuition to throw giganto fighting game tournaments.
MTL is confirmed for Anime games. Ottawa will win Guilty Gear, tho.
MTL better show for Smash or they are a bunch o' free hazbeens.
I'd love to have MTL's SF come out. We never talk.
Some Toronto is confirmed for Smash. If more players from TO would show to try and take our money, that would be good too (Not that it would happen. O:< ).
