Venue Parking:
If you are wishing to drop your equipment off at the venue first then park your car then drive up to the control gate, press the intercom and say that you're going to the Union Hall. From there, drive to the hall and carry in your equipment. Cars cannot be left in the drop-off area for more than ten minutes. Drive back out past the control gate again and into car park 3 (as seen on Campus Map above) then walk back to the hall and enter the LAN. Car park 3 is nearest to the hall, otherwise use car parks 1, 2, 2a or 6.

Food & Drinks:
There is also a local McDonalds about 15mins walk away from the venue and if you can drive there is also other local fast food restaurants located a bit further away as well. Last year there was a Campus Canteen open inside the Venue that served hot food and drinks but it is unconfirmed at this time if it will be open again this year. We will have ice cold soft drinks available for purchase in the venue and of course you are always free to pack your own lunch.

Accommodation:
(lol if u don't get housing)

For people looking at getting the closest possible accommodation I'd recommend the Parkside Inn.
Its walking distance to the University (5-10mins) and a 20min drive from the airport.
2 and 4 people rooms available.


Ok so... other notes:

Cao leaves late april, this will be the last major tournament that you will have a chance to see the man himself until 2012.

Since I'm a nice guy, I'm also going to help sponsor some players over here. No not any Americans or such, I just don't want other people to be out of pocket to come to this tourney, then they can't make BAM 2k11 (yes, 2 Melbourne Majors in one year)

So if you think you deserve sponsorship, or someone else deserves sponsorship, talk to me C:

Rules:

Brawl rules to be updated

joe could be good.... if u use boomerang and bomb. then mach speed XD and combo in the air with full 3 jumps... sounds like alot of work when u could just use sentinel.

thinking of going to this... flights seem cheap. saw a 50$ and a 80$ flight..but when it comes to total its like 180$.. hidden costs. >.>
also would need housing.

i'll house you arrow if you don't get a better offer...
i'm 20 mins from venue but an hour from the airport

tiger $125 return
price-match with jetstar (and save 10% i hear?)
so that'd be ~$112.50 return

Lol I think these dates correspond perfectly with my uni break. If they do, I'll be booking flights tonight.

Attila, you said you'd like to house me at tPoO. Is that offer still available?
