Hello everybody DEMON_JIM here bringing you another great tournament. And yes this tournament is to help me out with Battle at the Border 3 in September so I can run things better when that time comes. This is the first fighting game tournament at Lets Play Arcade since they moved to the new location. Come play, get some good games in, and have fun.
August 1st 2009
Let’s Play Arcade/Video Stop
817 W. Harrison
Harlingen, TX 78550
There are two ways to come into the street this is one. If your coming from US77take the exit for Tyler it the exit after the big Motel 6 to the left. This exit also takes you to the front of the mall. If you see the Simon Mall and Walmart to your right you have gone to far it is the exit right before all this. (DO NOT TAKE THE EXIT THAT GOES RIGHT TO MCALLEN there are two exits you know this one is the wrong one because it takes you on a giant curve to the right the one you want takes you to ground level)
If your coming from US83 i believe it’s the exit for Dixieland. This exit is right after Logan’s Steakhouse, it leads you right next to a Pep Boys and taco bell. Your on Tyler at this point well pretty much. Just stay straight after exiting until you see O’Reilly/Aarons the arcade is in there.
This is for both once you get on Tyler driver a decent while down until you see an O’Reily auto parts store and Aarons Furniture Rental. The arcade is on the other side INSIDE I repeat INSIDE VIDEO STOP you will see a banner on the panes of glass saying so.
Registration starts at 12PM (thats when Lets Play opens) but you may register for any game whenever you like just as long as that game hasn’t started yet. (ex: You wanna play SF4 just make sure you register by 5:45)
