The June 25th tournament of the Fresno Ranbats has been canceled
I regret to inform everyone that the tournament, at the very least the first one is going to be canceled.
It turns out that the GM that I had set everything up with at boomers was fired, I went the very next day and talked with the new GM that would be replacing her and was told things should still be okay. A couple days later I got a phone call saying that we weren’t going to be able to hold it at boomers because the corporate marketing guy who was training the new GM felt it wasn’t a good idea. In addition to that I haven’t been able to find another venue that we can use for this first tournament.
I was told that it might be possible to have future tournament at boomers after the GM has settled into everything, but this first one just isn’t going to happen and no venue is going to just let us hold a tournament a week from when we tell them.
I’m very sorry for the people that were planning to come, when we hold another tournament here in Fresno I’ll be sure to let everyone know and I’m going to get the reservation for the tournament and venue signed in contract to prevent something like this from happening again, once again, I am truly sorry that its not going to happen.
Fresno’s very own ranking battles is starting up once again for season 2 (there was a season one?) for street fighter 4! Come one come all, we are trying to make this even better than the last one and even better with each tournament.
I will keep this thread updated with each tournament so keep checking for new info on each new tournament! We will have one tournament a month, with players that place within the top 6 earning points. Players will accumulate points throughout the season, and at the end of the season there will be a final ‘playoff’ tournament of the top 8 players competing in a round robin format to decide the winner.
Here is the info for the current upcoming tournament. We will be holding our ranbats at our local boomers.
