We have done these on several occasions and have always had a good time. We will continue to do so if people are interested.

Venue Rules:
1) Tournament Matches and Money Matches has priority over all matches. People have to leave at different times so be sure to complete tournament matches on a timely manner.

2) I do not provide food and drinks for people so please bring your own if you wish, There is a Kinney Pharmacy and a gas station to purchase food. You are allowed to use my cups plates and I do have filtered water if anyone wants some. You are also allowed to store things in my fridge (if there's space) and use my appliances.

3) Anything broken in the apartment you will pay for, anything of yours broken i will not pay for.

4) Tournaments or gathering of smashers and gamers alike usually tend to smell bad due to sweating/breathing from mass amounts of people. However i would like to reduce the smell cause i am sure its impossible to eliminate it completely.
So basically
-Shower
-Brush Your Teeth
-deodorize

5) Any Drug/ Alcohol related substances are not allowed inside my place. You may do it outside or in your car but not inside the house. I am opening up my place for the community so please be respectful to my wishes.

6) Shoes must be taken off there is a small patch infront of the door in which you may take off your shoes. You will be reminded once you come in, If you for some reason have them on inside the house you will than have to pay a quarter (25 cents) each time you make this mistake.

Well regardless of if i make it biweekly or weekly the thing is every Saturday i usually have people over to brawl mainly the Syracuse kids. This is just a way of saying to people who dont know that we are smashing and come over and play if you have time or want to improve. I am going to confirm an attendance per weekend to let smashers know what the turn out is looking like and its up to them rather or not they come. And i will let people know when Albany comes down so they can make sure they stop by and get practice with players they normally cannot.

Edit: But i do understand what your getting at and i take it into consideration. After the first few we'll see how things go. And how consistant they are.

I just wanna say how happy I am that you open this up melee! I was seriously getting sick of playing lvl1 falcon lol. though I doubt Ill just play melee, Anyone who needs their confidence boosted can play me in Brawl (Pit Fsmash all day!) and Ill gladly play in the crew battle if one team is looking to be to overpowered lol. seriously its really nice of you to open up your apartment to the community.

just a question here, why do people always put my name as Betta?!?! /End *****ing (lol its not a big deal, Everybody know its cause Im aggressive like a Bettafish.)

Now I can actually play Beta and Erk for extended periods of time. Pass on smash knowledge! Mine is better than KoJ's Jesiah's and Neil's combined they don't know about DERP or version differences.

this is the concept behind me not running regular tournaments but just for smash fests showing up at peoples houses its not a big deal.

also, I doubt too many rochester people will be coming to these, since we already have smashfests at the local college twice a week. just a heads up

I figured Rochester wouldn't come out to any of these. But after talking with angel and some of the RIT kids about how often you guys do get together to smash/ noticing the improvement of Rochester players, made me realize that the area of Central New York needs to start doing this as well. Its mainly like an open house for smash. Sometimes we'll have a lot of people sometimes we'll a small showing but either way i feel that central is behind western and this will help us catch up, meet new people, and have fun smashing.

To pricey for me. Especially for college people. Beside i heard pound brawl attendance isn't going to be that high. Less the an average ec national. But i don't follow it to much so i could be wrong.
