ATTENTION:

I am very sad to say this but we are canceling this tourney due to a very low projected turnout. :( most Austin smashers won't actually be in Austin due to thanksgiving break (most of us are going to other parts of Texas where family is) and thus won't be able to attend... As such this tourney is officially cancelled. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused anyone! And Vudujin sorry to get your hopes up D: we can do the Marth vs Roy money match at Apex!

Feel free! I'm probably going to be in Houston though (was only going to come to Austin early because of the tournament).

MT____, is there anybody left in Austin? My house is way out in Smithville, about 45 minutes from Austin, so it might not be the most convenient location especially if Vudujin doesn't have a ride.
