The tournament will be run using Tonamento: and I’ll personally seed the brackets.
is plentiful around the venue, but it’s in a city, so you’re going to either have to be crafty or pay some money.
In front of the Venue is metered parking at .50 an hour. I’m not really sure if the meters are checked on saturdays, but they only go until 6pm anyway.
Beside the venue is a lot with “Honor Box” paid parking for 6$. However, you can’t leave your space once you park there.
One block away on broad street is VCU’s parking deck for the Siegal Center and the bookstore. The lot is usually open on weekends and is free if no events are being run. If an event is going on, parking is like 5 dollars. This is my recommended parking solution.
More than likely, we will be playing games at the arcade or at someone’s house on friday night, so if you’re not an early riser, come hang the night before!
After the tourney on Saturday is the traditional Richmond bar crawl! This time, I’ll have a planned route.
Several local Richmond players can house people on Fri/Sat: Here’s the list (to be updated)
- Robin/ Renegade: 6-7 people on Fri/Sat
- Perry/Gauze: ?
- Corey/VAKing: ?
- Chris Adams/Drizzle: ?
- Collin Anderson: ?
There are also hotels:
The all around best choice for hotel is the comfort inn on broad st.
The holiday inn on boulevard and other really cheap options are around but are kinda in the ghetto,
There is always the holiday inn express/Omni/or Jefferson downtown if you are ballin.
