    Venue name: Zuma Fun Center (South)
    Address: 6767 Southwest Freeway, Houston, Tx 77074
    Phone number: 713.981.7888
    Zuma is a mix between a FunPlex, Chuck E Cheese and Dave and Busters. You can eat some super tasty things like pizza/hot dogs/burgers...ect, play arcade games such as ddr/marvel 2/time crisis...ect and even do some out door things like putt-putt, go-karts, bumper boats and batting cages. Some times smash can get boring so at least at this venue you will be able to do things other than smash. Thank me later.
    The tournament area is extremely easy to find. As soon as you walk into Zuma, either look straight ahead or to your right for some stairs. Go up the stairs and BOOM, you have arrived at the tournament area. The entire upstairs is for the tournament and the entire downstairs is for anything but the tournament.
    Video of the Tournament area (not set-up yet) as well as the arcade/food area (starting at 2:13).

    WHOBO 5 will be unlike anything I've ever tried before. Not only will i provide you kids with the normal Brawl 1vs1/2vs2/side event (low tier 2vs2/mid tier 1vs1), i am going to provide you with the UNTHINKABLE! What is "the unthinkable?" What im trying to tell you is that XYRO77 (the legend) will also be offering Melee and Project M 1vs1/2vs2 for those of you that cant handle Brawl.
    October 19 (Saturday) 2013:
    BE AT THE VENUE BY 10AM. I will start all events at 11am. If you are late, you are DQed.
    Brawl 2vs2
    Melee 2vs2
    PM 2vs2
    Brawl 1vs1 pools
    Brawl Low tier [v7] 2vs2 (if time permits)
    October 20 (Sunday) 2013:
    BE AT THE VENUE BY 10AM. I will start all events at 11am. If you are late, you are DQed.
    Brawl 1vs1 Bracket
    Melee 1vs1
    PM 1vs1
    Brawl Mid Tier (v7) 1vs1
    Anything not finished on day one
    Basically, i will be doing 9 events in 2 days. Lucky lucky you that i am a Grand Master TO Savant Nerd and i can do anything when it comes to running events because a normal TO would cry at the amount of work i am taking on. If by some reason time is running really really low, i will cancel the 2 brawl side events and refund money. Though this is highly unlikely, i want you kids to be informed of the possibilities. Regardless of what happens, please be at the venue EARLY everyday and expect to be at the venue LATE everyday. Unless you or your beaver dies, there is no excuse for being late. Plan ahead.

    The speed of any tournament is largely dependent on the total amount of setups it possesses. I can be a legendary TO (which i am, btw) but if there is only 10 setups for 100 people, its gonna be a long *** day. See my point? Anyways, i really need 40 or more FULL set-ups (wii/ssbb/ssbm/tv) in order to get this event at full speed so PLEASE help me out on this.
    When the tournament starts, there will be ZERO friendlies/MMs so the more fullset-ups you bring, the faster we will get these events done and the more time we will have for MM/friendlies.
    EDIT 1: Screw it, whoever brings a full set-up will get into a side event for free.
    EDIT 2: In the 2nd post, De Angelo is gonna give away something for those who bring a full-setup. I wont know what it is until he makes the post.

    Hotel Address: 6687 Southwest Freeway, Houston, Tx 77074
    Phone number: (713) 776-2633
    Rate: 89.99$ a night with mentioning Promo Code: "WB5"
    Option 1: (Phone): Call (713) 776-2622 and mention Group Code: WB5. Cash will not be accepted as a form of payment to book your hotel room. Everything must be done through credit cards only (Preferably in advance). The following dates have been reserved: Oct 18, 19, 20 for you to choose from. This is a 1st come 1st serve so book your hotel now before this special rate sells out!
    ALT OPTION 1: Make posts in this thread and Houston players can probably house you. I know for a fact that Sync=(713)-201-8338 is notorious for housing here in Houston. OOS players have priority when it comes to housing. Beware, Sync may charge a small fee for housing.
    ALT OPTION 2: Go to http://www.hotels.com and type in the address to WHOBO 5 and it will find you ALL the hotels(from dirt cheap to mega expensive) in a 20 mile radius of the WHOBO 5 venue. DO THIS ASAP OR YOU RISK THE CHANCE AT HAVING THE ROOMS ALREADY FILLED.
    ALT OPTION 3: Find out who is staying in a hotel and offer to help pay for some of the cost. By doing that, you get housing AND its cheaper for everybody involved. I highly recommend this.
    ALT OPTION 4: http://www.couchsurfing.org/ this site allows you to find free housing from people all around the usa(in this case, you want houston ). However, you will not know who the person is untill you arrive at their house(you can call them ahead of time if u need to). There have been several smashers who done this and reported back saying it was an AWESOME experience. Its 99.99% safe but take caution just in case.

    1. If you have any questions, comments, issues or maybe you are lonely at night and need a LEGENDARY tournament organizer to talk to, please post in this thread and/or call me at 409-692-0697
    2. Got a 3DS? Bring it! Many of us want to street pass you sooooooo bad.
    3. Here are the results of WHOBO 1, WHOBO 2, WHOBO 3 and WHOBO 4 (mk banned) in case you wanna see some WHOBO history.
    4. From my experience, the cheapest plane tickets can be found on Orbitz, Priceline and HotWire. Remember, try to arrive and depart on a WEEKDAY (mon-thurs) so that you can get even LOWER rates. If you need help, just ask.

    Exactly what events are paid for for MK mains?


    How do we get that discount? Sign up for the events on the website and put a note that we use MK, or don't sign up for them and say in the note "I main MK I want in X events"

    It says it in the OP, you big dummy. Regular brawl 1vs1 and 2vs2.


    Buy venue/side events and don't buy 1vs1/2vs2. When u show up, tell me you main mk and ill run you through my database of hatred. If you come up, u get those two events for free. If not, u gotta pay.

    Its kind of Sonic's easiest matchup though. It doesn't have to be someone fighting Xyro though. Razer and Dabuz did one at the LSC championship.

    So.

    $28 venue/pay pal
    $10 side events
    $20 or so for gas est.
    $30 for food if I eat McDonalds the whole time
    $20 for MM's
    I could make this trip for about $100 if I sign up early enough, even less if I don't eat much/win MM's. And that's even $38 now and the other $60-70 later

    we'll see....

    if you want a tip. instead of eating terrible mcdonalds, eating 5-10$ meals 3 times a day for 2-3 days, you can probably just pick up a loaf of bread and pb&j or some sliced meats or something and just make yourself sandwiches every day. It might be more boring and a bit harder to manage, but itll will be like half the price. I did that when I went to Last years apex and I saved hella money.

    MK is banned. No Meta Knight, no Kortal Kombat and certainly no Mario Karting in the Mushroom Kingdom.

    You ban Mario Kart, Meta Knight and Kortal Kombat yet Mortal Kombat gets a pass? That's bull****.
