SF in Australia?

So, I’ve recently become obsessed with SF, having emulated SF2 and SF3, and now playing SF4, but I’m finding it really hard to get better, since I get terrible ping to everyone online. So, I’m wondering if there’s enough people in Perth for us to maybe get some small console tournaments going? I’m mates with a guy who runs Brawl tournaments, so he could probably give me some details on where to rent out a room.

Here is a link to the Ozhadou forum, specifically the Perth player hook-up section. http://www.ozhadou.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4219.
