    The Big House 3
    A National Melee and Project M Tournament
    October 12-13, 2013
    Ann Arbor, MI



    - INTRODUCTION -

    The Big House is back. Last year's installment featured two full days of Melee and Project M with over 130 players in attendance, including Mango and Hungrybox. I'm excited to announce that the Michigan community has even bigger plans in store this time!

    Why should you attend?
    * Huge Melee attendance - the largest active Midwest Melee tournament series
    * Full Project M tourney - featuring both singles pools and a doubles event
    * Great TO staff - reputation for being extremely well-organized and well-executed
    * Competitive experience - high number of guaranteed tournament sets, FC-style
    * Casual experience - 2.5 days to play tons of friendlies, including Friday evening
    * Big spotlight - two concurrent livestreams by VGBootCamp and UMSmash
    * Travel convenience - great hotel venue with a bus to and from the DTW airport
    * Michigan community - one of the biggest and most active Smash scenes anywhere
    * Plenty to do in Ann Arbor - ranked as one of the top ten college towns in America

    Third Big House, third new venue! We've expanded with each installment and this year is no exception. The Hilton Garden Inn was recently ranked #1 hotel in Ann Arbor and will be providing a great venue for us. We'll be playing in the Great Lakes Ballroom, which is almost twice as big as the Big House 2 venue.

    No, we decided to focus on Melee and PM. I would have loved to run 64, but with the time and space we have, I felt that it couldn't be pulled off at the level of quality I'd expect from a national tournament without diluting the experience of Melee and PM attendees.
