    My Bishimon was very sad, no amount of showering and armor polishing could get the stains out!

    We won't have access to the Ames clubhouse for a good while. PCity is going to Florida or something.

    Question: What interest would there be for a tournament in Iowa City? The venue that we're having our Smash tournament at this weekend is really nice. There would be a venue fee and stuff, probably wouldn't have it until next year.

    Also, Joker is starting his monthlies again starting in January, so that option is opening up again.

    What kind of real interest to we have for the Final Round Qualifier in KC? I know Curtis and I are pretty for sure going and Blank said he would like to go as well. We need to plan the car situation and junk.

    1. PICS YO! I'll need to know what kind of venue we're working with (i.e. size, location etc) before I can give my opinion. Otherwise, I'd be down for publicizing as long as we get a set date early (at least 3 months in advance).

    2. Getting seeded in a bracket for a tournament I highly doubt I'll even consider going to sounds redundant. Then again, I'm due for a tourney so... whatever, I'll go.

    I've said before I'm more than willing to head over to IC to play with you guys be it casuals or a tourney. I'll go no matter what, but as Sam said whether I "promote" it a lot depends on the venue and everything.

    As for KC Rob posted earlier that he's also driving and I'm planning on riding with him. Sonny is a maybe on it, I asked if he wanted to go but he's not sure if he wants to take the extra time off right after the library being closed for a week (unpaid closed at that). I plan on running through fools on that HF cab.

    If there is interest in an IC tournament, I can help out.

    I'm still going and i've got room for 2 more if sonny isn't going, 1 more if he is. Whoever sits shotgun will have to climb in from the drivers side though since my brother in law managed to break the handle on the passanger side.

    I'm thinking I'm gonna go along, I assume you've got a place to crash lined up?

    Also thinking I might try to make it to focus fire as well, not sure if anyone is interested in pooling for that. I realize two tourneys in two weeks is pretty rought but yea.

    Most certainly want to go to KC, considering of course someone is willing to give me a ride, cus' I'm a deadbeat.

    I may ride with, depends on when you're going and coming back. Also do you have housing or a hotel?

    I have no housing worked out, and no specific times worked out, probably going to have to be a hotel but I wanted to gauge interest first, because if I was the only one going I'd just try and bum a room instead. It sounds like tourneys start early on Sat so probably least Friday, probably leave Sunday after HDR is over/everyone we know is out, which would basically mean leaving before SF4 is over.

    As far as KC, it sounds like we are going to need 2 cars no matter what, so we'll just have to fight over who's in which car and who's driving in the second car. I'm going to be driving to focus fire so I'm calling not driving down to KC. Do we have rooms worked out for there?
  • GrogGrog discombobulatingly Joined: Posts: 3,618
    I could probably grab that Friday off so I can get to your place at a decent time but yeah I'd have to come back Sunday at some point. I just now read the thread and they have an ST head to head there... so I'm interested. I'm going to see if I can get housing.

    Maybe i didn't think this through. The 17th i'll be on my way back from a job in South Dakota and won't get back till about 9 pm and i have to work downtown the 19th so i have to come back saturday night. Saturday morning is really my only option for leaving. Construction sucks sometimes.

    Also Curtis you got dibs on a seat for KC.

    First I'm interested in a tournament IC and I would help out with it too.
    Also I was very interested at the Final Round Qualifier in KC, but then my bitch of a boss started adding more days she deemed it should be blacked out so until I find a way ask for it off I probably will won't be going :(. On other news I'm trying to find a new place to work that is more flexable then the casino im tried of working there at someplace close to West Liberty. $6.50 a hour and shitty tips doesn't justify the amount of work I actually do also it makes me super salty that I have PTO(paid time off) that I earn on working holidays and I can't even use them when I want to.

    Ok, so the Iowa City Rec Center is where the Smash event was held this weekend. We had 71 singles entrants, 15 full setups and a projector going. It's a big hall with plenty of space and a stage--tables and chairs provided. It's good for something pretty big. Only catch is they close at 10pm so we HAVE to get done before then. They literally kicked us out of there at that time.

    I was initially thinking of just holding something local there but it definitely accommodates a lot more.

    As for Focus Fire, I'd have to see about my financial situation but I'd like to come seeing as it's not too far. But as of right now it's a no.

    Hey there local Iowanites. A friend and I are a kinda putting a street fighter based musical project together that involves character specific songs and whatnot. He recently posted one of the songs on srk and youtube, and if you like it and would like to further support and add life to the project help support us if you like it by adding it to your favorites.

    I know this is not a local matchmaking related post, but frankly, I would do the same for you! :)

    Agreed

    btw Grotsnik, there are three or four of us that get together on a semi regular basis in Cedar Rapids on wednesday nights. I'm sure you would be invited to one of these sessions some time.. We play on PS3. Got a gamer tag?

    By get together, do you mean on PSN or physical meeting? I'm cool with both. I've actually got Wednesdays off work so it should be pretty easy for me to do it.

    Any of you guys interested on coming up to MN on the 17th?



    I wanna rematch pbjmixxa/cookinmama in GGXXAC and I've been practicing MB:AA too, so it will be a pleasure to have Iowa come up to play video games with us again. :)

    Meaning we plan on getting together on wednesdays, in real life, however real life happens from time to time including work schedules ect, and these get togethers sometimes fall through... And if that happens we try to meet online atleast, yet again, this does not always happen. That being said, we meet on a semi regular basis, and more times than not, it happens that atleast 2 or three of us are able to make it.

    Both actually.. we did not meet up this last wednesday since one of the peeps just got done moving that day, and it was my Birthday so I was preoccupied. I will add you on my friends list tonight on PSN.

    Also, I think I might try to make the Focus Fire event in WI, there might be 2 or 3 of us going... Hope to see some of you there! Peace!

    Hey, next time you guys meet, I'd like to come just so I can meet all of you. I guess, if you're going to FF, you'll see Murph, Curtis, and Charlie there.
