Alright here it is guys.
This is it the big Winnipeg Major. This is the tournament you want to perform your best, well atleast the ones not going to evo. Shane again is the top player to gun down in several games. Russel is the defending champ at TST but Wilson has been running through him in the past few tournies. Can he finall come through and win the big one? Those are some of the stories going into the event. So guys get in the practice and lets put on a show. With some of the new games coming out we are planning to run tournaments for them. The list is subject to change depending on what you guys want. Remember folks this tournament doesn’t run without input from everyone. If enough people speak up we’'ll do what we can to compensate for it. On to the details.
