The Aftermath Fighting Session (kind of like an After Party)
Following the tournament, there will be an after-event session (late night fighting game session going very late into the night).

Tournament participants get to play fighting games for free during the aftermath. Non-tournament participants can join in for a one-time $6 fee for the night.

The Session will end around 4am-4:30am for cleanup and closing. Closing will occur around 5am-5:15am (just before the first max departs Gresham Station).

Food & Drinks
Versis has a No Outside Food & Beverage policy as food & drinks are sold at the venue. Water in a see-through container is the one exception. Food & Drink purchased at Versis can be consumed at the gaming stations (but avoid eating food around tournament participants during their matches as that can be rude to competing players).

Tournament Organizer: Fight Night Community (Sam Y will be team lead)

Just a quick reminder about tomorrow’s Street Fighter IV Tournament & Fight Session.

Side Note: for the session, if anyone is willing to bring additional systems (or even just cables and power supplies for 360s), that would be great and help to have more stations going simultaneously. We will have some additional stations, but the more the merrier :slight_smile:
