Iowa: Maize of Defeat


#142

First I’m interested in a tournament IC and I would help out with it too.
Also I was very interested at the Final Round Qualifier in KC, but then my bitch of a boss started adding more days she deemed it should be blacked out so until I find a way ask for it off I probably will won’t be going :(. On other news I’m trying to find a new place to work that is more flexable then the casino im tried of working there at someplace close to West Liberty. $6.50 a hour and shitty tips doesn’t justify the amount of work I actually do also it makes me super salty that I have PTO(paid time off) that I earn on working holidays and I can’t even use them when I want to.

Ok, so the Iowa City Rec Center is where the Smash event was held this weekend. We had 71 singles entrants, 15 full setups and a projector going. It’s a big hall with plenty of space and a stage–tables and chairs provided. It’s good for something pretty big. Only catch is they close at 10pm so we HAVE to get done before then. They literally kicked us out of there at that time.

I was initially thinking of just holding something local there but it definitely accommodates a lot more.

As for Focus Fire, I’d have to see about my financial situation but I’d like to come seeing as it’s not too far. But as of right now it’s a no.

I’m from Cedar Rapids so something in Iowa City would be much more doable than Ames.

Hey there local Iowanites. A friend and I are a kinda putting a street fighter based musical project together that involves character specific songs and whatnot. He recently posted one of the songs on srk and youtube, and if you like it and would like to further support and add life to the project help support us if you like it by adding it to your favorites.

Agreed

btw Grotsnik, there are three or four of us that get together on a semi regular basis in Cedar Rapids on wednesday nights. I’m sure you would be invited to one of these sessions some time… We play on PS3. Got a gamer tag?


#148

semi regualr meaning???


#149

I think they mean on PSN, but if not-- yeah huh?


#150

Beer is good. especially beer my company pays for since i am out of town working.

Thought i’d share that with you all while in my drunken state of mind


#151

Gamertag is Grotsnik_MD. I play on PSN.

By get together, do you mean on PSN or physical meeting? I’m cool with both. I’ve actually got Wednesdays off work so it should be pretty easy for me to do it.


#152

Any of you guys interested on coming up to MN on the 17th?

I wanna rematch pbjmixxa/cookinmama in GGXXAC and I’ve been practicing MB:AA too, so it will be a pleasure to have Iowa come up to play video games with us again. :slight_smile:


#153

Somebody want’s to take on Iowan’s in Gear? Goddamnit I need to go to this.


#154

That weekend it’ll be a battle on two fronts, I’ll be taking the south i SF2 and you take the north in GG.


#155

I don’t know who cookinmama is, but damn, sorry Des. We already made plans to go to KC for some qualifier for a tournament none of us is considering going to.


#156

So are we doing a there and back in one day thing? That’s fine but just wondering.


#157

Meaning we plan on getting together on wednesdays, in real life, however real life happens from time to time including work schedules ect, and these get togethers sometimes fall through… And if that happens we try to meet online atleast, yet again, this does not always happen. That being said, we meet on a semi regular basis, and more times than not, it happens that atleast 2 or three of us are able to make it.


#158

Both actually… we did not meet up this last wednesday since one of the peeps just got done moving that day, and it was my Birthday so I was preoccupied. I will add you on my friends list tonight on PSN.

Also, I think I might try to make the Focus Fire event in WI, there might be 2 or 3 of us going… Hope to see some of you there! Peace!


#159

Hey, next time you guys meet, I’d like to come just so I can meet all of you. I guess, if you’re going to FF, you’ll see Murph, Curtis, and Charlie there.


#160

That’s the plan right now.
