Battle by the Gazebo 7: Climbing the stairs! 8/23 Chinatown NYC

(This is crossposted from the Melty Bread forums original post can be found here )

3pm start(Signups will likely be cut by 3:30 at the latest)
Sameish location: The gazebo is being reserved by Zar from 3-8, so hopefully we can run it there. Some details are still unconfirmed.
If you need travel information everything should be in the bbg6 thread here

$5 entree fee – $25 removed for venue fees, rest as prize.
Double elimination.
Single game matches.
Possible second/third place prizes depending on turnout.
BYOC - Controller must be usable without installation of programs/drivers and can’t control your opponent.
Coin-flip for side, loser picks stage(or winner may pick stage and tell loser to pick side).
If no flip the stage must be agreed on by both players or random.
Double-blind character selection on request.
Bracket will be set to separate players by region.

If someone can provide a second setup I’ll cover your entree fee. Setup must have correct aspect ratio, 2 usb ports, and no slowdown. A third may be used if turnout is large enough. Excess setups may be brought for casuals, but won’t get free entree.
Players may not demand a setup to use if there is more than one available. If you have concerns about a setup being playable for tournament matches tell me asap and I will test it personally along with input from other players.

Please keep the profanity to a minimum(which is none), and the area clean.

Remember you MUST keep the area clean (says so on the permit) and try to keep profanities downnn (out of respect to the proprietors who loaned us the area). Also, there may actually be some columnists/journalists present- be ready to REPRESENT USMB and the fighting gaming culture (think of some possible q&a’s so you dont look stupid lol but hey, thats on you.)

Expect me to be at CF by 1pm and we can try to set up some casuals before parting to the HYPE MACHINES. At about 2:30pm well will break out and head to the park (by the vendors) to discuss rules and collect venue and tournament entry fees. (Since i chose not to state that fees will be collected when I applied for the reservation we will have to keep this on the low :x ).

and update

I may just jump back and forth from CF to Columbus Park to pick ppl up and escort them.

Here’s date flier~!

We can’t really say until you get there, gotta feel out the person to make sure they don’t ruin the equipment playing. Know what I mean?

Was fun seeing everyone again. Suck that is costs me about $50 a pop to chill in the city, but hey, I saw and played some SF4, so it’s all good. Maybe I’ll learn one of these Melty Heart games and play with you guys.

Hal, I’m dissapointed you weren’t there. =/
