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
- Location - Inside a very nice mall there will be plenty to do aside from the tournament without having to leave the building
- 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!
Please let me know what you guys think, and leave a post here if you’re thinking of coming in a format like this:
