1/08/2011 The Caroline Rose Hummel Memorial Tournament and Fundraiser. Richmond, VA


#1

Hello all, we’ve finally ironed out the date for the memorial tournament.

For those of you that haven’t read the thread:

http://shoryuken.com/f19/those-you-who-know-moosehummel-256865/

Caroline Rose, Moose’s daughter, passed away of SIDS at 2 months old. This tournament is a way of showing support to our own in times of tragedy. I know SRK can step it up, we’re family here.

In lieu of any venue fees, we will be accepting donations for moose’s family to help as well as donations for SIDS.org to help fund research to find a cure.

Moose and his wife Amanda met because of videogames and enjoy playing together, so they both found it fitting that we enjoy some great games in their daughter’s honor.

**The location will be at Strange Matter.

The address is 929 West Grace Street, Richmond VA 23200

The tournament will start at 2pm**

For those who haven’t been there, Strange Matter is a Restaurant/Venue/Arcade right next to VCU’s campus. It’s pretty awesome.

Parking is an interesting event most of the time, but with school on break and being a saturday, shouldn’t be too much an issue. There is street parking, deck parking on harrison and schafer (between grace and broad), and lot parking next to SM for 6$.

The main Tournament will be SSFIV. It will be run primarily on Xbox console, with one or two PS3 setups available if both competitors agree.

The tourney fee for it is 10$, that will go to the prize money.

We humbly request that you make a donation on top.

Other games will be run as well:

They will all be donation based tournaments.

You can pay whatever amount you wish to enter, and half will be donated to Moose’s Family and SIDS.org. The other half will go to the winners of the tournament.

The only catch is that the due to only one cabinet per game, the entrants will be capped at 16, with only the 16 highest donations participating. All others will be given the option to donate or receive a refund. This won’t be a hard cap with me turning away solo 3S players from GA or something, but a general guideline.

These games will be:

Street Fighter 3: Third Strike (Arcade Cabinet) (US Sticks Comp Buttons)

Super Turbo (Arcade Cabinet) (US Sticks, Comp Buttons)

Capcom vs SNK 2 (Arcade Cabinet) (360 Sticks, tbd. Comp Buttons)

Marvel vs Capcom 2 (Arcade Cabinet) (US Sticks Comp Buttons)

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (Arcade Cabinet) (US Sticks Comp Buttons)

Super Puzzle Fighter 2 X (Arcade Cabinet) (US Sticks Comp Buttons)

Vampire Savior (Arcade Cabinet) (US Sticks Comp Buttons)

Blazblue: CS (Xbox360)

Tekken6 (PS3)

I will also include almost any other tournaments as long as their are 4 people interested in participating.

**There will also be a SSFIV character auction tournament.
**It will be single elim, single match.
Half of the proceeds will be donated.

The process is that we go through the cast of SFIV, each character getting only one space in the tournament. Selecting that character however, will be up for auction! Highest bidder gets that character. If you are a specialist, prepare to bid! Perfect to show off that sweet side character you’ve been working on.

Ok. That’s a lot of events to run. I’ll luckily be assisted with services and equipment from Havitz, who’ll be running a tournament at the End Game Center in Charlottesville, VA on 12/18. Any other volunteers to run brackets or report matches are very welcome.

Thanks so much for your support!

If you’re a friend of Moose’s, an online competitor, or simply want to extend a compassionate hand, but can’t make this tourney, you can:

A) Make a donation to Sids.org in the name of Caroline Rose Hummel
B) In leiu of flowers, you can make a paypal donation directly to the family to help @ moosehummel@hotmail.com

Thanks everyone
