$5 Melee Singles (with pools)
$5 Project M Singles (with pools)
What constitutes a set up? Either Gamecube or Wii w/Melee disc or a Wii w/Project M and a CRT TV

Payouts for Both Events:

32-47 entrants = 50/25/15/10
48+ entrants = 48/25/11/8/4(x2)

Rules:
[collapse="General Rules"] - Players who fail to report to their match within 5 minutes of it being announced will lose their first game of the match. After 10 minutes without reporting to their match, players will be disqualified from the tournament.
- Coaching is only allowed between tournament matches. Excessive coaching will not be tolerated.
- Bracket matches take priority over friendlies and money matches. The TO reserves the right to prematurely end any match.
- Non-first party controllers must be inspected by TO staff before use in tourney.
- Wireless controllers are discouraged due to interference and unreliability.
- Pause can be requested off and that request cannot be denied. If one pauses mid-match, the person who initiated the pause loses their current stock. If the pause causes the opponent to lose their stock (such as interfering with recovery), the person who initiated the pause loses two stocks. If there is any doubt in the ruling of a pausing incident, stop what you are doing and CALL ONE OF THE TOs TO YOUR MATCH.
- The tournament organizer has the right to save/record any tournament match if possible and has the right to upload said match.
- Any hacks or mods applied to a setup may be inspected by a TO, who reserves the right to have those hacks disabled if they are deemed inappropriate for tournament play.[/collapse]

I'm planning on going, hopefully a couple of my friends can come too :D I told one of them about this, and his only question was "what's the cash prize?". He's in it to win it XD

I'm really interested in going. does it matter what our age is?
No it doesn't, anyone and everyone is welcome to enter or just play in the venue as long as you pay the necessary venue and/or entry fee. We've had high schoolers enter our tournaments before, should be no problem, we don't discriminate. Most tournaments do not have an age requirement.

Cash Prize is in the "Payouts" section of the first post. The $5 fee for each event from each entrant will be used to form the pot. So for example, if 30 people enter Project M and 40 people enter Melee, that means PM's pot will be $150 and melee's pot will be $200. We will divide the pot between the top 3-5 finishers, which also depends on how many entrants there are.

As a side not, our next tournament taking place next month might see an increase in entry fee (up to $10), which would mean a pot that is twice as big for the winners, as well as possibly some other prize for 1st since we will be partnered with the school for that tournament.

Hopefully we'll see you guys there!

And yes, I know how the payouts work, my friend was just wondering because he's so confident he'll win I guess :p
