Why not Viva La Smashfest?

edit: o, it's still gonna be a tournament? HRMMM

I'm the tournament naming genius. Jake knows a certain name (not sure if he wants to reveal or save the name, so I won't say it,) but I also invented "LOBSTER" and "Super Mass Bros."

I'll try my hardest to name this tournament, Jake.

Ill definitely be there. Ill be bringing 1 or 2 setups.
Im new to the TO scene, but I definitely don't mind helping organize tourneys. By the time this happens I should have a few tournaments under my belt. I organized one last month, will have another this month. If things go well I should have a few more before summer.
