Since Final Round has grown into a nation tournament I have to start thinking on how can I make FR bigger and better. I think we have out grown the hotel we have been in for the past 3 years. I’m looking to goto downtown ATL at the major convention center for the SE called Ga. World Congress center. With this upgrade in venue I will have to raise the door fee to $30 most likely.
I’m going to really get on the grind when I search for sponsership this year! I’m going to turn FR into a business. That means I have to start paying taxes when I get my business lic.:wow: I think that was the main problem with me not getting sponsership this year. FR being a legit business will attract some sponsers IMO. Why would a big company give money away to some random guy? But if it’s an up and coming business/con it maybe easier to throw money our way if we show them we are growing across the nation with people attending FR. Also being at the GWCC will make FR look official imo.
I had people from the tekken community and smash community ask me to raise the tournament fee’s to $20!:wow: Now my main concern is pricing people out of attending FR in the future.:shake: I don’t want to do that. With that said I want people to play in as many games as they can afford at FR. That’s why I have $5-$10 tournaments now. $10 for the major games and $5 for the older games or not as popular games! If we did 20 I think we can work a way to get the top 5 cashed out! What do you guy’s think of that? The rooms i’m looking at I may have to raise the door entry fee to $30-$35.
I would like some feedback everyone that has attended fr before. Your opinion is golden to me.:china: I will have the venue secured in prolly a month maybe 2 at the longest, so I need this feedback before I continue with getting the GWCC as frxii venue.
FINAL ROUND has turn into a national major, but it will always be a southern tradition and all of you guy’s opinions are golden to me. That’s why I always put my suggestion threads in the atl south. FR is a great event because you guy’s support it every year. So let’s get the hype started 12 months before FRXI!:china:
