[08/29/2009] Kogarasumaru August 2009 Monthly (UFC 102) (Edison, NJ)


#1

Last month was a success… but I’ve decided a few things. Firstly, I’m getting rid of Street Fighter. There are enough weeklies in the area for SF4 that no one cares to have them at my monthlies; so they wont be here. Instead we will be replacing them with BlazBlue, which seems to be extremely popular right now. Secondly, if you don’t play, or DIRECTLY show support for a player in the tournament, you are no longer welcome. Attendance is getting way too high for people who don’t play any games. So people like Kit, Kit’s Brother, Diane, NeoOutlaw, etc are still welcome because they show direct support for the event. However, people who show up just for the party, the alcohol and the barbeque, are no longer welcome.
