- Due to the forums changing hands recently, the majority of our links were ruined. Reason being, we used the shorthand code of [thread=] or [post=] to link through the site, but it seems those tags are no longer supported. Mankosuki has began fixing these broken links, and will make other much needed updates to the thread as he comes across them. Anyone wishing to help out, please let us know by posting in the thread.
- ESAM will be moving by the end of summer, so make sure to wish him luck and give him lots of love before he goes! We love you ESAM. <3 (update: this was a year ago, where did he move so I can update the smasher locator? Any other location changes for people?)
Welcome to the Florida Thread. If you are a smasher in Florida, this is a quick check for most anything concerning the smash scene here. If you are an OOS smasher coming to visit Florida, you can use this to find tourneys in your areas of visitation, and to announce when and where you will be here. That information will go at the top of this section.
We here in Florida typically divide ourselves into 5 major regions of FL Smash. North, Mid West, Mid East, South West, and South East. They are abbreviated NFL, MWFL, MEFL, SWFL, SEFL respectively. To help illustrate these areas to those who may not be familiar with the Florida smash scene, we present the following image:

These areas are referred to all over Floridian threads, including this one. This should help in identifying what area exactly is being talked about. In addition to the 5 regions getting their own color, we designate OOS (out of state) as yellow.
This screenname, "FloridaMeister" is a general screenname, the password of which multiple Floridian smashers know. These smashers work as a group to keep this thread as up-to-date as possible. A list of Smashers who have access to FloridaMeister is in the box below. If you need to PM FloridaMeister, it would be better to PM one of the names given. Since we log in directly to our own SN's on a more regular basis, you can expect a quicker response that way. If you would like to be part of the group with access to this screen name to help keep the Florida thread up to date, then just post here expressing your interest.
