FAST 1 - Florida's Awesome Summer Tourney - July 17-20, 2008 (Register Online NOW!!!)

Not open for further replies.

UCF (Orlando, FL)
For discussion, questions, etc. on this tournament please go to the tournament listings thread: http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=164840

With the recent announcement of the cancellation of FC this summer, I have decided to work on hosting a large scale tournament which will hopefully meet the size and scope of other large out -of-state tournaments, here in Central Florida. The tournament will run a course of 4 days, during which time, we hope to offer several different events in both Melee and Brawl. Here are the details that I am looking at right now:

Dates: Thursday July 17, 2008 to Sunday July 20, 2008

Location: The Central Florida YMCA, the Y will be able to offer us not only a huge basketball court to have the main event, but also a smaller room for check-in and registration, and the Lockheed Martin center, complete with multiple laptops, displays, and projectors.

Also, there's showers, so don't stink up the joint!!:laugh:


814 W. Oak Ridge Road
Orlando, FL 32809


too lazy, i'lll do it later, mapquest, qq nubs

**Possible schedule of events!** (NOTE: ALL EVENTS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME)

Day 1: Thursday July 17, 2008

11:00 AM - Registration/Check In, Online Confirmation

1:00 PM - Super Smash Bros. Melee Doubles tournament

When Doubles ends, either 1st round of singles pools will begin or Crew battles, depends on how much time doubles takes.

Day 2: Friday July 18, 2008

11:00 AM - Check In for Singles (Check in will only happen if singles did not start the day before)

1:00 PM - Super Smash Bros. Melee Singles Tournament (If pools start the day before, we will continue pools during this time, then progress into brackets). At the end of the tournament, people can play until the venue closes for the day.

Day 3: Saturday July 19, 2008

11:00 AM - Check in registration for Doubles (are you seeing a pattern in the schedules yet??)

1:00 PM - Super Smash Bros. Brawl Doubles Tournament (again, we can start singles early if time permits, otherwise we can do Brawl crew battles).

Day 4: Sunday July 20, 2008

11:00 AM - Check in for Singles (again this will only be if singles did not start the day before, although we will do fast check ins to make sure people did not mysteriously disappear between rounds).

1:00 PM - Super Smash Bros. Brawl Singles Tournament

**If there is any spare time at all during the tournament, we will host random/low tier tournaments provided there is enough interest**

ALSO, let me know if you guys want 64, we can find setups, its just about whether or not people want it.

yoshis/lylat/PS1 = counterpicks
if you pick a specific level, the opponent has the opportunity to switch chars. otherwise each crew will have everyone write down predetermined characters and who goes first.

All prizes are going to be some form of currency, most likely it will be a percent of the pot to be determined later, or a fixed prize, but we hopefully want to give out at least 10 thousand in prizes. Also, I want to pay to a lot of places also, sooooo yea, the more people show up, the more money, ya dig?

Other stuff/Misc. crap


**The following packages and offers may change at any moment, especially individual registration, we may later abandon it for a full package in order to minimize loss of expenses**

You may have noticed in the schedule, that there are 2 hour check-in periods for all 4 days. That may change depending on whether or not we can have online registration, but irregardless, there will be separate fees and registrations for each event. Even though brawl is new, we have to accept the fact that some people will come just to play melee (in fact we're counting on that to bring in lots of OOS'ers), and also that some people won't want to play melee, but instead will come to play brawl, since they know they would just get ***** in melee. So, we're gonna set up things like this:


Melee/Brawl events

Ok, so for the prices the breakdown is this:

Singles events will be $25 dollars each.
Doubles events will be $40 dollars per team (each person will have to pay $20)

In addition, a mandatory $10 dollar per-person fee is included in all events. The prices shown reflect the fee, the fee is per event so each event price is the final price.

Alternative package


This covers the following:

Brawl singles ($15)
Brawl doubles ($10)
Melee singles (15)
Melee doubles ($10)
Venue fee ($10)

ALL CREW BATTLES ARE SEPARATE FEES! They will be 5 dollars per person, per crew, according to rules, each crew must have 10 people, therefore it will be 50 dollars per crew. You can pay for crew battles the day of, there will be no online registration for them.

Online Registration

Registration is handled by Acteva, an event management and registration group. You can now register here:


The prices indicated are the prices here, unfortunately there is a processing fee, which varies based on how much the tickets cost (so the 20 dollar ticket will only have 1.25 fee while the 60 dollar package will have 2.82). Please make sure to answer the question below (i think it will force you to anyways).

There are no refunds, so do not buy anything unless you commit to go!!!

Registration is Visa and Master Card only for now, I will see about getting PayPal up later.

This tournament is still in early stages, but it will happen, don't be fooled, this is gonna be the biggest tournament ever, tell all your friends, tell everyone you've ever met to come, I don't care how bad they are at smash, they need to be here!!!

Right now, I want opinions people, ideas, suggestions, I'm open to anything, hit me with your best shot, I want this tournament to be run exactly as people want, no screw ups, aight!?

Possible Attendance/ Pot Size

Basically, as far as attendance/pot stuff goes, this list is compiled of people who either posted/were mentioned in the three separate threads on boards right now. Even if you're not sure, or it's like a "i'll be able to go if hell freezes over thing", i'll still put your name down, cause i want everybody here no matter what.

IF THEY DID, however, here's the estimated total pot size @ 60 dollars a person (assuming everyone pays for all events):

$11,040, to be distributed among 4 events.

Let's keep it up people! :):)

Quite ambitious, Florida hasn't had a nationwide tournament since MLG hosted in around 04, 05 much less doing a major tournament alone. I would suggest you post this on the tournament listings if you haven't already to promote this tournament and convince them that it will be a great tournament. This will help you get out of staters to come to FL. Usually major tournaments need 2-3 months notice minimal so people can plan. The only disadvantage with FL as it always been since the beginning of smash is it's location, but I'll wish you the best of luck!

Yea, it's in listings, and i'm gonna try and hype this as much as possible :hype hype:.

Stupid bottom right corner of the US, either way, florida offers a lot, and it's about time people see that. Floridaaaa step it up, and help get people here! :colorful:

Lol Florida doesn't need out of state to have a 200 person brawl tourney. Florida's brawl scene has to be 1 of if not the biggest in the country.

Good idea though Frames. Also what about holding it in the big Pegasus Ballroom?

.....it might be hard for me to miss school friday. is it possible to maybe start doubles later friday evening or something? or failing that, start singles saturday

i mean id love to go at least for the melee part

edit: while i would still prefer a later start time on friday (didnt FC start during the evening on the first day so people could fly in that day?), both my summer classes have online feeds, so personally theres a good chance im ok

200? That's like nothing, I wanna break the bank, son!! I want like 500 or something crazy, plus this'll give us a chance to show just how good Florida is. As for pegasus ballroom, that's option 2 if for some reason this doesn't work out, and i've already looked into booking space there as well.

EDIT: Pegasus is out, they're doing orientation that weekend.


Sep 29, 2007
UCF (Orlando, FL)
Well the thing is, i want a lot of people to come, and i know that there's enough dedicated brawl players in FL we could get 200 easy for brawl, but the melee's what's gonna really bring in the OOSers, so i decided to have those events first.

As for the dates, I've been thinking of alternatives, I don't want to conflict with school, but unfortunately I can't do 4 events in one weekend, or people would die from 2 days of non-stop playing with no breaks, and even then that's only what 48 hours? Still couldn't do all that, plus friendlies and other shenanigans. We could capitalize on the speed of melee and probably do doubles and singles in one day, but that might still be too much depending on attendance. If we got it to 3 days, i would probably do this:

friday - melee
sat - brawl dubs
sun- brawl singz

But then why does melee only get one day, it should deserve two , plus that would leave no time for crew battles and such. Another idea for that week would be this:

thursday - melee dubz
fri- melee singz
sat - brawl dubz
sun - brawl singz

This is the same setup FC was going to have, and I think that it's good, but if people have school, it's going to be hard to miss 2 days in a row, whereas with the fri/mon schedule hopefully you'll have time to find out what you missed, and what you're going to miss on monday, IDK it's just something to think about, lemme know wat you guys think.
