We’ve got 6 tournaments lined up this year at our convention.
Magic: The Gathering
Street Fighter III: Third Strike
Super Smash Brothers Melee
Guilty Gear XX
Mario Kart: Double Dash
Dance Dance Revolution
All of these will have prizes that you can win. Our convention’s name is the Spring Festival, and it’s the third that we’ve run.
The Spring Festival will be held on March 31, the last
Saturday of the month. It’ll be from 10 AM-8 PM, and it’ll occupy 8
rooms in Polytechnic University (directions to Polytechnic will be given later). We’ll have lots of great anime to
show you, plenty of prizes to give out, and tons of interesting
What kind of original events?

We’ll have a complete schedule up for you soon. You can bring as many
friends as you like with you to either event - more is always merrier,
especially when you’re at an anime convention. If you can’t make it
for this Saturday, I hope to see you at our main event on March 31st.
If you have any issues, suggestions, concerns, messages, or poems,
feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll try to respond as best I can.
I look forward to facing some of you in 3rd Strike. See you soon!
BTW, we’re also going to be running a smaller event this Saturday (The 17th), in which we’ll be gaming from 12-8. It’s also free (but no prizes), and should be a fun chance to play fighting games against other people.
