We are offering 60 shirts now, 30 will be given to those who pre-registered early, and the rest will be first come first serve.

ALSO, Mad props to Rx- and BossMagnet, who single - handedly saved this tournament from near disaster by graciously lending $1350 to help cover the cost of the venue! Without them this tournament would not be possible!!!


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.

Address:

814 W. Oak Ridge Road
Orlando, FL 32809
407.855.2430


Directions/Airport Info:

The airport closest to the venue is the Orlando International Airport (airport code MCO). There is currently no (free) transportation to the venue from the airport so accommodations will need to be made in advance in order to arrive to the venue.

Directions from the Airport to the venue

1.Head south on Airport Blvd
2.Take the ramp to SR-436/Terminal B/N exit/SR-528-TOLL3.Merge onto Airport Blvd
4.Slight right at S Semoran Blvd/SR-436 N
5.Turn left at Hoffner Rd/SR-15 Continue to follow Hoffner Rd
6.Turn left at S Orange Ave/SR-527 S
7.Turn right at E Oak Ridge Rd

Prizes

ALL WINNINGS WILL BE MAILED OUT!

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?


Registration/Fees

You may have noticed in the schedule, that there are 1 hour check-in periods for all 4 days.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:

Fees:

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)

The price comes from this formula (15 dollars for the pot + 10 dollar house fee = 25)
The same goes for doubles (10 dollars for the pot + 10 dollar house fee = 20)

$60 SUPER-MEGA-VALUE-PACK

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:

http://acteva.com/booking.cfm?bevaID=161093

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 questions below (i think it will force you to anyways).

With the questions: Please make sure you answer all questions fully!

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.

If you don't have access to a Visa or MasterCard, then you can go to your local CVS or Walgreens' and pick up a nifty VISA/MasterCard gift card, it's basically cash but in credit card form, if you're going to do that I would suggest buying the 75 dollar one to cover all events, or just buy the smaller ones if you're doing only one or two events.

If you register online after June 20th, your money will NOT go in the pot, it will come after the tournament ends, and will be redistributed accordingly.

On site Registration

Registration will be offered AT the venue on all the days. You may register for all events any day you like (you can't register for events that have already happened however :laugh:). These are the following prices:

$30 for singles
$25 for doubles ($50 a team)
$75 for everything

Yes you are being punished for taking too long to register online, but fear not, the extra money will go to the pot, thus making it even sweeter for whoever wins!


Housing

As of right now, the venue is NOT offering on-site housing.

This means that if you do not live a reasonable distance from the venue such that you can drive back and forth for 4 days, YOU WILL NEED HOUSING.

Obviously this will prove troublesome in the future, but as for now, FL people are stepping it up to help house people.

As far as transportation goes you will have to find some method of transportation, i know it sucks, but there's no shuttles or anything, so locals will have to give rides for now until we can find something else later.


Who is housing:
Hungrybox (http://smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=175583)

About hungrybox's housing...

So um.

My mom just said there's like not an exact limit of people i can house.

(But i dont want like 50)

The mages rule kinda sucks hardcore.
I remember Xif and Green Mario got disqualified for teams at VLS because they did'nt hear their name being called and Green Mario was sitting in the SAME ROOM as when they announced it listening out for their name. The same thing happened to them AGAIN in singles because they were waiting for singles to start, but it was taking forever so they went out to BK for like 30 minutes and got DQed since it started while they were gone.

Yep. Mages rule for DQing people really sucks. Please don't use it.

That does suck...but I need SOME kind of rule, i can't just have people running around willy-nilly. If you have an alternative suggestion, i'm open to listen, by all means.

Alternative suggestion, after those minutes (around 5 min) skip their match and continue on, but be sure to check after every few matches. After the row (aka round of matches) is done, then apply the mages rule. Microphones help too.

Wow. This is by far the only thing that could possibly make a brawl tournament better(cause their boring otherwise):
Hot Import Nights on the same day? Sweet. Only probably here is that theres no way i'd be able to stay the entire weekend because of school. :[

You need to do some heavy advertisement and post this thread everywhere.

Use the mages rule. Xif and green getting DQ'ed sucked, no doubt, but it's the responsibility of the players to be there for their matches, not the other way around (sorry Xif). If you have to put the fear of DQ'ing in people to get the tournament to run smoother then do it, getting everything done in a sane period of time has to be the top priority.

In other news, expect north Fl to be at this **** in some form or another.

I definantly like Honor's idea better.
And when you seed 2nd and 3rd round pools, do it well. :O(If there is that many people)

And when you seed 2nd and 3rd round pools, do it well. :O(If there is that many people)
I agree. There should be absolutely no reason to just kill off a team because they got hungry. If they are gone for an excessive amount of time (like until the bracket is done), then you gave them a chance. And you gave people a chance to find them. But to go, "Hey, it has been two minutes..." is kinda lame.

Use the mages rule. Xif and green getting DQ'ed sucked, no doubt, but it's the responsibility of the players to be there for their matches, not the other way around (sorry Xif). If you have to put the fear of DQ'ing in people to get the tournament to run smoother then do it, getting everything done in a sane period of time has to be the top priority.

In other news, expect north Fl to be at this **** in some form or another.
the mages dq rule is terrible. i take ****s longer than 4 minutes long

I'll probably have to ask my mom, but I will almost definitely be able to house for this ****.

Needless to say, I definitely want to attend. We have to start advertising this **** like crazy.

Try and get it stickied!! QDVS should have some sort of stickying power.

Laijin has a good point on Advertising. Having threads in all the regions directing to the tournament listings or Atlantic South thread so that it would let people be aware of the tournament.

As for housing, ask around in Atlantic South (especially in Central FL) for Smashers who would be willing to house OOS smasher. Having a hotel being discounted helps, but having the community help out would improve the chances of OOS smashers coming in because the expenses are lower than a hotel. Not only that, I'm pretty sure some won't mind considering they'll have a chance to smash with them before the tournament. And making a list of who is housing which smasher. Some small tidbits.

And if anything pm the kishes (FC Tournaments), husband and/or wife (BOMB), ken (Omnismash) or any smasher that had a successful national tournament to see what they did to make a national tournament successful. Just show them your thread, what your goals are and they'll be able to help you out.

If you can to see who can help you out as staff at a tournament. It will put less weight on you, and you all can equally contribute to making a smooth run tournament. Moreover, majority of the successful tournaments I've read had help like the kishes and their family helping out, husbands' crew, and ken's crew, family, and friends help out to make this a successful tournament.

Make sure to take down player's phone numbers when they register; then you can call people. You're more likely to feel a phone vibrate rather than hear a megaphone or shouting at a large tournament.

Also, yay for Melee.

I'll be in Orlando all summer, and I'm awesome, so I'm down to help with organizing or whatnot, as well.

if you guys want, i'll sponser my at&t phone, because I work there and I have unlimited everything which I dont pay a dime for. So if you guys want just make sure when ppl sign up they put their cell phone, so we can give them a ring. If their not in the venue or something... I dont mind at all.

why are there 2 threads for this? that might confuse some people when it comes down to find useful info (housing, directions, details...) since they wont know which thread to go to... just my 2 cents

well i posted this in atl south first, but then i decided it should be in listings too, it won't be too confusing, because any changes i make i make sure to copy over to the other thread and vice-versa.

Wait, XYZ is gonna give everyone phones?
no, he's just saying that he'll let us use his phone, since he gets free everything, in order to call people who are missing during their matches in order to prevent wrongful dq's.
