[Feb 11, 2012] skisonic and SteveH's Knockout Fights [#1] at Dave & Busters... (Kensington , MD)


#1

Hello D.M.V!

Guess who’s running a tournament!!

Steve H ([media=youtube]5g6x01AtsGs[/media]), and I have been in talks with this location and are proud to announce a tournament at a brand new venue for our local scene. This tournament will essentially be a trial run for the venue, to see what kind of turn-out we’ll get from both established players as well as new players.

Dave & Busters
11301 Rockville Pike
Bethesda, MD 20895

The main perks of this of venue are

  1. Location - Inside a very nice mall there will be plenty to do aside from the tournament without having to leave the building
  2. Atmosphere - The D & B is a pretty nice looking place, with fairly affordable food and of course, drinks available at the venue.

Basically what we have here is a chance to establish another spot for recurring tournaments to help bring out more people. Long-term, our contact is very interested in the F.G.C. and tournaments so they will likely be able to help with something bigger down the line.

This tournament has been announced on D.C.'s WPGC 95.5F.M and it’s actually generated a surprising amount of interest.

If you’re new, come on out, get some games in, meet your local scene, and see what hardcore fighting game competition is all about!

If you’ve been to a few tournaments I urge you to come out and show the locals what competitive gaming is like, and knock some fools out!

@Hav
Sounds good, I was wondering if you were into that game.

@eric
Yea, this tournament is organized by me and Steve H, we will be running it and ensuring it goes smoothly.

Okay I fixed the event date, and the R.S.V.P. should be working.
Please R.S.V.P. so we can get an idea of how many heads will show.
Also there’s still the possibility we change to a much more clever name(suggestions!?)
Keep your eyes peeled.

Thanks for the support!
