[2. Housing]We've worked with the local Comfort Suites and Hilton and managed to secure 50 rooms at a fixed rate for 3 nights (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). We've worked with them to get the prices down so you can share a 2 queen bedroom (with 1 sleeper sofa) with 4 people for $45/night per person. If the queen bedrooms sell out, there are also king rooms available. Also, the first fifty people to reserve rooms get free continental breakfast for all three days.
There is other lodging in Starkville, but we will be hosting some super great late night events for those staying at the hotels listed above. More info on those later, but among them will be an amateur bracket for those who didn't make it out of Brawl and Melee singles pools. There will be no entry fee for these events, but we'll be putting money into the pot for these events.
Remember, the only way to get into these side events is to book your hotel rooms through us! If the rooms sell out, we will sell passes to play in these side events.
IMPORTANT - All of the proceeds from the passes we sell, as well as a portion of the side events' pot will go towards the Child's Play Charity.
For more information about Child's Play, click here.
Pictures coming soon!

Venue Fee - $20 (more info on what this covers in the [Pricing] section)
Smash 64 Singles - $20
Brawl Doubles - $30 ($15 per person)
Brawl Singles - $20
Melee Doubles - $30 ($15 per person)
Melee Singles - $20
Payouts to be decided soon, but it will most likely be a top 8 payout
As for the guaranteed pot, right now there is $500 automatically being put into each of the above five events, before any entry fees are added in. For example, if 100 people enter brawl singles then that would be $2000 + $500 = $2500 pot.

- This is a TWO DAY EVENT. It's listed as 4 days because Friday at 10PM is when the first side event starts and the Monday at 5AM is when we're busing people back to Memphis (MEM).
- Everyone flies or drives in on Friday. Those who fly will fly to Memphis (MEM), and we will have three MSU charter coach buses to get people from the airport to the campus. More information on this in the [Transportation] section.
- All pools matches on Saturday
- All bracket matches on Sunday
- Three side events at the hotel on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night
[6. Setups]We will be taking a leaf out of Pound's book and making a separate thread for setups. Thread coming soon!
[7. Security, Food]Security will be provided at the venue for your convenience and for ours.
The Union (our venue), has several places to eat at on the first floor
Click here for a link to some of the menus for the eating establishments listed below.
Chik-Fil-A - Chicken sandwiches, nuggets, tenders.
Sbarro - Pizza and some Italian food
Mississippi Steak - Philly cheese steaks, Philly cheese chicken sandwiches, fried pickles, some other neat things
Bleecker St. - Sandwiches, paninis, salads
Zoca - Mexican food
P.O.D. Market - Convenience store, pre-made sandwiches, lots of cool stuff
Click here for a link to see what P.O.D. Market looks like.
[8. Transportation]Since there is a lot of information for transportation, we will be making a separate thread for it.
A quick overview is that anyone flying in will need to fly in on Friday into Memphis (MEM), as we'll be having a few charter coach buses taking people from Memphis to Starkville. We'll provide times on when people need to fly in once we have the thread up. We've currently got a 10% discount for anyone who flies with AirTran, but more information on that once we get the other thread up.
Right now we can only provide 165 people transportation from Memphis to Starkville. If more people confirm they are going to fly in, we will make sure you're able to get here somehow.
Link coming soon!
$22 for buses (round trip)
$135 for hotels (all three nights, or $45 per night per person)
$20 Venue Fee
$10 Spectator Fee (includes friendlies for the whole weekend)
$20 for Singles Events
$15 for Doubles Events
Very soon we should have our website up, where you'll be able to pay easily using PayPal.
More info on what the venue fee covers coming soon.
Rules are the same as Pound V for Melee except for the following change to the stagelist
Neutral Stages (Singles):
Fountain of Dreams
Counterpick Stage (Singles):
Neutral Stages (Doubles):
[NOTE: Pound V used Pound IV's ruleset which used APEX 2010's ruleset. Semifinals will be best of 5, that is the only other change]
[NOTE: I'm not sure if the common procedure for Brawl is to have semifinals be best of 5 or not, someone please get back to me on this.]
Our very own MookieRah has been the mastermind behind all our graphic design, and he will be designing T-shirts that you can pre-order on our website.
We will be getting some media coverage for this. More info coming soon!
We are hiring a professional to come record as many setups as possible. He will also be recording around the venue so we can capture as much hype as possible.
We welcome anyone who offers to record and upload matches in a timely manner.
Also, there will be a stream of some kind for this. There might even be more than one, I'm not totally sure yet.
One other thing I need some input on is which streaming service we should be looking into (Ustream, Livestream, others?). Any input here would be much appreciated.
We are currently working towards get sponsors for this so we can get more money in the pot and potentially offset some more of the costs for housing and buses. If anyone has any ideas or knows someone we should talk to about sponsorship then PLEASE let us know!
