Sypher here, aka BowserMax, aka Max. I decided to start holding Melee biweeklies at my house because of the general sucess of my smashfests in the past. This is the thread!

(they're not really biweekly, biweekly just sounds nice!)

4 - General

Post if you're planning on coming, it really helps me when it comes to organization.

This is a Melee event, so I expect it to be focused on Melee.

I have a good sized basement, but due to space issues in the past, I'm going to have a 32-man cap on attendance.

I have 6 (!) TVs, all in perfect working order. If you're going to bring anything to the biweekly, be it a GC+Melee or a TV or some other thing that people will be using, just let me know by posting so I can help keep track of it and so I can plan accordingly.

If you bring a TV, you can dictate what goes on it. It can be anything from SSB64 to Tetris, I don't really care. This doesn't mean that you can steal setups from other TVs, though, so if you plan on bringing a TV bring your own setup as well.

5 - Location & Parking & Contact

My address is:
I'm in the larger white house on the very left where the road ends.

You might want to call me when you're close to my house because it can be hard to hear knocking on the door when we're in the basement and there is talking/smash/controller clicking going on.

Inside the court most parking spots are dedicated to the owners of the houses. This means DO NOT PARK IN A NORMAL PARKING SPACE! It's happened before, and I don't want to upset the neighbors. You can look around for a visitor spot, usually they're available. They are just like normal spaces except they have no numbers on the curb. If there are no available spaces I suggest parking on the road before you turn into Cambridge Ct, named Ranger Rd.

My cell number is Call me if you have problems finding the house or if you have any questions and can't reach me another way.

K, we got a ride. I'll call you tomorrow when we get into Fairfax. And is the set-up you mentioned above the same Brawl set-up as mine?

So far I have 8 people coming:

Saki Zatoichi + 2 friends
Ikagi + 1 friend

I have 4 TVs now, and Saki Zatoichi is bringing one so that means there are going to be 5.

I have one GC and a copy of Melee, and I believe Saki is bringing a Wii and Brawl. Ikagi's friend is also supposed to bring his Wii and a Melee disc.

3 full setups, and 5 TVs. I need people to bring cubes with Melee.

okay guys, i have 4 TVs with me and two game setups.

that leaves 2 TVs with no game.

i have a friend bringing his TV and GC a little bit later, but not in time for the tournament

i need people to step up and bring some cubes, we only need two more.

Thanks for stepping up guys, I really appreciate it. So, bringing games+systems:
krnred225, knightpraetor, SOJ, me, ikagi

Me, Me, Me, Me, krnred225

I did terrible in singles. It's cause I lost to Korn and then Thumbs :/. The other side of the losers bracket looked so much easier :/...
lol @ going to Onnett with 4 foxes for teams Sypher and Korn :3. Epic finish where one car finished both of you.

Are you afraid of the light?
