Just thought I'd update you guys on some new info:

There will be a $200 Pot Bonus for MELEE SINGLES AND PM DOUBLES

Imagine the type of stuff you can buy with that kind of money.

I was trying to call to reserve a room with the discount. I mentioned the event and they have no idea what I am talking about. Are you sure that is the correct phone number?

Yeah they need to update this smashboards page.
Apparently it's being held at the Hampton Inn, not the Holiday Inn.

I took this from their facebook event page:
"HOTEL INFO- This tournament will be hosted at the ballroom of the Hampton Inn.
-The hotel comes with complimentary breakfast, pool area, fitness center, and a cash bar.

-There are several discounted rooms available for stay in the venue($109), please be quick on this to ensure a spot as there is a finite amount!

*Reservation number(610)-250-6500
**Make sure you say you are apart of the Smash Brothers room block or you will NOT receive a discount."

I'm a Rosalina main from Massachusetts, and I'm planning on driving four hours to get here... because of the distance I can't be sure about the hotel, or if I can go at all, but I'm dedicated to making it happen and I'm bringing another lady with me >=) Smash 4 Doubles!

I'll be there! This is literally 10 minutes from my house.

For further area information: there is a large convenience store just across the street (Sheetz), and about half a mile up 248 (the highway the hotel is on), there is a large shopping center with a Walmart and Target, along with several restaurants (McDonald's, Burger King, Five Guys', Chic-Fil-A, Buffalo Wild Wings, Applebees, and a steakhouse chain whose name escapes me). There's also a Gamestop in the plaza if anyone needs anything from there.

Looking forward to seeing everyone! :)

Just continuing the list of things in the area: Arby's, Red Robin, Wawa, Wegman's (useful for those with dietary issues), Zoup, a Chinese buffet, and a few pizzerias. Also there's a sushi restaurant 1 mile down the road called DM Sushi.

Oh and the steakhouse chain is Longhorn.

How did I forget about Red Robin? I love that place.

On Facebook someone was talking about getting a carpool together for people from Mass/Rhode Island/Connecticut who are coming down (including me) so since this is an initiative thing, why don't we cut to the chase and just put down your name if you want to go and we can make a list. I can drive three other people there besides myself, and I might bully Rhode Island into helping with it too. They can't say no to me =P

Columbus OH has two rooms booked at the venue, each with 3 people in them currently. If you want an affordable room for this tournament, come chill with us. If we get one more, it would only be $30 a person. Just lemme know!

Also open space in our hotel room. Currently we have Tetraflora from Salty Highlights & I believe Anther will be with us too. And of course I will always help anybody who wants to get better with pro level tips :)
