Skyworld of Bakersfield will be the venue for our first - and hopefully not last - live gaming tournament! Taking place on August 1st, 2009, the game featured in this tournament will be Street Fighter IV and will be streamed LIVE over the internet.
The prizes are as follows:
1st place: $300.00 cold hard cash
2nd place: $100.00 gift certificate to Skyworld
3rd place: $50.00 gift certificate to Skyworld
All participants will get a free shirt when they register, to commemorate this huge event.
This will be a DOUBLE ELIMINATION tournament. All contestants will start in the upper bracket, then as contestants lose they will be moved to the lower bracket. All games will be conducted under supervision of a Skyworld employee. Any cheating (i.e., use of turbo buttons) will result in a double loss, thus ejecting the player out of the tournament. Games will be played 3 at a time, until the quarter-finals of each bracket. For the quarter-final, semi-final, and final matches, games will be played one at a time.
Spectators are always welcome to tournaments, however interfering with tournament play is not. Any spectator who is caught heckling, distracting, or causing trouble in any way will be asked to leave the premises. As with any tournament, all contestants are required to show good sportsmanship. Any taunting or heckling from a contestant will result in a warning, then an ejection from the tournament. There is no fee for watching the tournament.
Players may submit for entry via Skyworld, 3790 Ming Ave Bakersfield, CA 93309 (next to Toys ?R? Us), or online at http://www.uuddlrlrba.co.uk/node/343. The registration fee is $15.00 per player. If you enter online, your payment will be due the day of the tournament. No payment means no entry into the tournament.
NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN IF YOU ARE EJECTED FOR BREAKING A RULE!
