Lake Erie Summer Slam II: The Revenge – Cleveland, OH – Saturday, June 18, 2011
**Why: **Last year we hosted Cleveland’s first regional tournament since 2005, and it came together perfectly: established organizers, old and new school games, a dedicated regional community, and a kickass, entertaining and spacious venue made for a great weekend. We’re looking to bring that same hype back for another year along the shores of Lake Erie!
And YES, you get free food again for prepaying! – AND we have the entire outlying party area reserved – twice as much space as last year!
If you pre-pay by June 12, 11:59 p.m.
A: Your venue is $10.
B: Your trip to the appetizer table is GUARANTEED no matter when you get to the tournament.
Also please don’t get confused – this is not all-you-can-eat. We are paying per person so in effect everyone should be getting the same $10 worth of food.
If you do not pre-register you are not guaranteed free food, and venue fee will be $15 at the door.
ALSO, if you pre-PAY, you will be seeded in advance of the tournament because we will be able to make part of the brackets in advance.
How can you pay?
Paypal (email@example.com). SEND AS A GIFT so we do not incur FURTHER fees on this tournament. If you are unclear as how to use Paypal and send cash from the personal tab as a gift, let us know and we’ll help you. You must include your name, SRK handle, venue fee and games being played. If you forget something I will get try to get back to you ASAP but please take your time and send it right the first time
OR: If you want to pre-pay and are outside of Cleveland, but absolutely cannot with Paypal and can’t get someone to do it for you, contact me and we’ll see what we can work out.
NOTE: If you are paying for SF4 teams, you must pay the $20 in full for your team, and then let me know at time of purchase (or later through Facebook or email) who your partner is. CONTACT ME if you have any questions!
As part of the tournament, players have access to the event menu with other dining choices. We will have three dedicated servers, as well, including the two awesome females who assisted us last year. (They still wear their complementary Season’s Beatings shirts proudly, they tell me!)
