We had 170 entrants for Smash 4 at the last event back in February. Let's break that record this time. And this time, we've added Melee too. If you have any questions/concerns/comments, please don't hesitate to get at me on Facebook or Twitter.

Speaking of Facebook, here's the event page. Most discussions will happen there:

Also, bring setups!

After registering using the Google Forms thing, is there any additional process I need to do, or form to fill out or anything like that?

Bump. Up to 320 on the Facebook event. Also, any game that has over 65 entrants has a 6% pot bonus. So the more people that enter, the higher it'll be. For example, if 180 people enter, it'll be the $1,800 pot plus 6% more ($100 bonus) to make it a total of $1,900

Bump. 400+ in the Facebook event. This will be the last great practice before CEO in June. Come out and catch the hands!

Do we have to arrive at the venue before the first event starts or do we just have to arrive before the tournament we are entering into starts

You can arrive before the tourney you are going to enter. Although signups will stop an hour before the tourney starts

Anyone know if there are any other notable Link players in Florida besides myself? Am I really Florida's only active Link main? I feel lonely lol. I plan to attend tomorrow as well as attending CEO next month. I'm sure it'll be a blast. Lots of thanks go to whoever is hosting my first official offline tournament!

How long do these tournaments normally last anyway? Really want to attend... I live in Miami so I never really get the chance to attend, but now I feel I need to in order to revive my love for this game.
