What's So Special About This Tourney?

A little about myself first...
I am RPGfan, I am the president of "Game Knights" the most respected organization in the southwest. I have hosted tournaments from far and wide, from the east to the west coast. Helping multiple events and conventions have a successful gaming section. This is our baby, Las Cruces Game Convention is where we bring the best gaming the southwest has to offer. Both casual and hardcore.

The Las Cruces Game Convention (Cruces GameCon), is an annual event held by the Las Cruces Game Knights, a local video game club. Once a year, gamers from all around compete in high level tournaments while still enjoying themselves with an abundance of free play games. Gamers of all skill levels and genres are welcome and sure to have a memorable time at the Cruces GameCon! There is also cosplay contests, food, raffles, trading card games, anime, and small, fun tournaments. Cruces GameCon is a non-profit event with 100% of the proceeds going towards the club, charities and local artists. Come get your game on, and bring serious gaming back!

Is this event happening this year? I cant tell if 2014 is going to happen. The last post was in 2013, although the venue up top says 2014... I live in Silver City, and me and my training partner need to know if its gonna be worth it to come out for SSBM.

I'm in the Las Cruces area but don't have too much experience playing Melee in a tourney setting. I'd love to go and get my ass kicked for the first time ever, but Megaman1, do you know of any local crews in Cruces I can hit up during the summer and get some practice with?

Also, I have a setup no problem, just need to get myself another copy of melee and I'm good (currently only have project m)

How many people are you going to have RPGfan? I will go if you can guarantee me 20 people for Melee at least. If not, then I won't be there. And don't give me a MAYBE. Be sure.

The El Paso crew is committed to coming, so we expect around 20 people from their community alone. We're trying to confirm more coming from AZ and Albuquerque. Speaking of, if any of you Cruces people can house smash players please let us know.
