Ok, well i was thinking about three locations, two of which aren’t in the best neighborhoods, but they are sure to have enough seating. The third option is a decent place but the seating will only be enough for about 60 something people. Okay, so the first place i was thinking was this near death pizza joint right down the street from me called Fat Ducks. It’s not the nicest location, but it has just about all we need (i still haven’t talked to the owner, but i think this won’t be a problem at all) and i can easily bring more t.v.'s if needed. Then the other prospects are lampost pizza, which is still very close and also has a bad location but has enough t.v.'s to do something with (although talking to the owners will be tough because they get a lot of business around the time sports starts up (their whole theme) and the t.v.'s might be reserved for the sports watchers), and mountain mike’s pizza, who has a decent location but the seating is like up to 60 people (gotta shoot for more peepz than that so that way just in case a lot don’t make it, a tourney is still happening, and if they do make it, well its just more fun).
You got any ideas of some other joints in sac?
Thanks, that would be most appreciated. Are you qwerty from dustloop?
Oh whoops >.< Well, i need help in figuring out which tourney to start first, assuming we only have a few games to play possible. I mean, how many can we do with two t.v.'s? Let’s say tourney starts at 3 or 4 and the place closes at 10 or 11, how many can i crank out in that time?
Well i’m just trying to get some input from people but it seems a lot more people are willing to make it to Sac-town events than i thought. This makes me pretty happy so i am thinking of most definitely doing some decent sized events in Sacramento. And don’t worry about the hype, shit i will whore myself on every thread if i have to, hell i’ll pay for pizza if it means getting people over and get my friend to pick people up. Plus, after getting a little poll together, people would love to start a Sac-town scene, its just starting it is the problem. Not for long though.
I haven’t played much as of late, but I’d be willing to make the drive up to play (after a couple nights of practice). May also get my buddy Zeke to head over. We use to run all the stockton Tournaments (except for the one where the asian kid stole the money, forever screwing up the tourney scene in Stockton)…so we could offer some assistance in running things, if you were short people.
I know I could at least get my car full of people to hit it up. Two cars full, more than likely,…if there was an Alpha 3 Tourney as well.
Sac use to have a pretty strong scene. When we got bored of beating people at pac bowl, we would sometimes head up there to whatever bowling alley was 24 hours. Was cool. Some pretty decent competition, glad to see someone trying to revive things.
Yo, this is DJcream of Stockton. I’m down for some tourney action up in Sac since its like a hour drive away. I got that Melty Blood on my laptop so I’ll bring it whenever ya’ll ask. BTW, I run most of the current tourneys nowadays in Stockton (mostly Smash with 50+ heads) here so I can help with running things on the side.
i like your effort, if you really tried hard tho you prolly get 30+ people at the 1st event, i think. i mean considering you got people like me just lurking sac, going all the way the keystone and san jose for play sometimes. you should get with Tyram, he is trying the same shit.
there is a store on howe called gamer’s deap games where people go to play Magic, yu gi oh, and warhammer and shit. There location has a VERY big area in the back where we could set up consoles and tv’s if possible. As soon as i can get over there i will talk to the owner and see what we can possibly do. I was thinking of like a $10 venue fee to enter tourneys and $5 to enter each tourney but then again this is all in planning and nothing is set in stone yet.
