Team Arlington Presents:



February 19th, 20th, and 21st, 2011.

Hey everybody! *Pound* is back for it's finale and we are bringing it back bigger and WAY better than ever. Everything has fallen into place perfectly and we have all the supplies we need to run a perfect tournament for everybody. I will keep people updated with the most up-to-date information as it continues to unfold. Everything about this venue and how prepared we are will completely blow *Pound* 4 out of the water....

REGISTER HERE!!!!!!!!!!!

Venue:



Hyatt Regency Crystal City
2799 Jefferson Davis Highway
Arlington, VA 22202
(703) 418-1234

**DO NOT PARK HERE!!!! $25/DAY VALET!!! See parking section below


*Pound* V will be held at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, VA, home of Team Arlington. The space reserved is 23,000 square feet. *Pound* 4 had a 12,000 square foot space. The same hotel will be offering hotel rooms at an extremely discounted rate (the typical rate is $359 for a single occupancy room).

The venue is located 1.3 miles from DCA airport and there is a complimentary shuttle which runs back and forth from the airport to the hotel.

The hotel is located next to a metro stop for easy access to all of downtown Washington DC for those travelling to easily tour. The hotel also has a few small restaurants located inside of it.

A little more venue venue information can be found in THIS POSTabout FOOD NEAR THE VENUE AND EXTRA CONVENIENCE FOR THOSE OF YOU FLYING IN





Best Parking Options!!!!

plank have you posted anything about parking so far?

Parking at the venue is VALET- ONLY, $25 A DAY.



which is absurd


SO here are the alternatives everyone should use.


option A.) (FREE) Crystal city shops @ 1750

1750 Crystal Drive, Arlington, VA

Parking is FREE after 4 on Fridays and FREE on Weekends and FREE on Holidays. That should have Friday after 4 and all day Monday covered for anyone. This is .8 miles away so it will be a little bit of a walk, OR you can walk .3 miles to the Crystal City metro station and take the free shuttle to the venue from there. This is the cheapest way by FAR!! The metro address is

1800 Jefferson Davis Highway, crystal city, va.

option B.) (~$8-day) 2611 Jefferson Davis Highway, crystal city, va. CONCORD parking

This is right next to the venue if you are lazy and don't want to walk. This is $7 a day for EARLY BIRD (before 8 AM) parking. If you leave your car there overnight, that would count as early bird for the next day i assume. it doesn't say non-early bird prices. Probably 10-15, but definitely none of that 25 junk.


Setups:

I will be providing TV's again for *Pound* V. I have contacted multiple companies that still produce CRT TV's and i'm seeing who gives me the best deal for mass TV's. I already have around 30 TV's and 15 Gamecubes and we are buying many, many more. I ran into a lot of money so I will be able to buy tons and tons of equipment for this and to use in the future for future tournaments. We will have 64 tournament TV's for Melee at all times. I have connections to get extremely good deals on Cubes/Melee discs as well. Setups will not be an issue for once at a major tournament, because I am sick of it being a problem so it is now #1 priority.

Aside from the setups we provide, players are encouraged to bring their own setups, although we will probably only use those TV's for friendlies. The tournament TV's are going to be set up, numbered, and organized before the tournament even starts.

The more TV's people bring, the more friendlies and such will go ALL weekend!



$15 SETUP DISCOUNTS!!!

Because I will be hiring security 24/7, I am very comfortable with giving people DISCOUNTS for bringing setups because I know things won't get stolen!! So everyone PLEASE help out and bring FULL setups (Gamecube/melee/TV) or (Wii/Brawl/TV) or (SF4/360 - PS3/TV).

A FULL setup will get you $15 off if you leave it AT the venue from Saturday when you arrive until Monday when I need it. Everyone who brings in a setup will have to sign a quick document saying this or the $15 will have to be returned.

So let's step it up, bring more setups than anyone has ever seen, and get PAID??





Registration/Prices:

To ensure that everyone doesn't register at once and we have a constant flow of registrants, *Pound* is going to be implementing the same registration system we had for *Pound* 3 and *Pound* 4 with the fee increasing $2.50 each month. The base venue fee will only be $20. Venue fee will be combined with registration to ensure everyone pays.

Registration is OPEN at http://pound5.weebly.com

Melee Singles: $35 ($15 Entry, $20 Venue)
Melee Singles + Teams: $50 ($15/$15 Entries, $20 Venue)
Melee Teams: $35 ($15 Entry, $20 Venue)

Brawl Singles: $35
Brawl Singles + Teams: $50
Brawl Teams: $35

Spectator Fee: $20

The spectator fee includes playing unlimited friendlies.

If a player wishes to enter both Melee and Brawl they only have to pay the venue fee one time. A special button will be added for this situation.

Starting on October 1st and continuing the 1st of each month until registration closes on February 1st, the price will increase by 2.50 each new Month. This means in January registration will be $10 more.

All players who register will be delivered a lanyard with their name tag when they arrive. This must be kept on your person at all times in case there is any question on whether or not you have paid to get in. Crismas will be making these amazing name tags again.



UPDATE:: YOU MAY REGISTER AT THE VENUE FOR $65. HOWEVER, IF YOU PLAN TO DO THIS, PLEASE PM ME AHEAD OF TIME IF POSSIBLE AT ALL AND TELL ME SO I CAN ADD YOU TO POOLS! OTHERWISE LATE ENTRANTS MAY BE STUCK INTO VERY TOUGH POOLS FOR ROUND 1. *well, as tough as round 1 pools can be!

Amateur Buy-In Tournament:

Amateur Buy-In Tournament for Melee or Brawl: $10

All players who are eliminated in each round of pools have the opportunity to play in an amateur buy-in tournament for the skill level of group they got eliminated in.

The tournament is $10 and will be paid out the standard payouts. Hence if there are 3 rounds of pools, there will be 3 mini amateur buy-in tournaments. They will be double elimination.


ONLINE REGISTRATION IS MANDATORY!!! If you don't have a credit card to use then you can buy a Visa Gift Card with cash at a variety of your local stores listed below.




Hotel Rooms and Rules of Conduct:

BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOM HERE!!!


This is a very, very nice hotel so people have to be careful to behave themselves. The discount rates we were granted were as follows:

1 Person: $95
2 People: $95
3 People: $120
4 People: $145

No more than 4 people per room, per night. Remember the Hotel IS the Venue so if you get complaints and such you can be kicked out.

You will find no cheaper rooms anywhere since this is so close to Washington DC. Everything is crazy expensive. Not to mention you just leave your hotel room and walk right down to the venue.

You may NOT sleep inside the venue itself.

THE LAST DAY TO BOOK YOUR ROOM IS JANUARY 19TH!!!!!!




General Rules: (Refer to same rules as Pound 4 for Melee, and Tantalus's Brawl rules)

Melee Rules

Brawl Ruleset


Schedule:

All games will be all 3 days between regular and buy-in tournaments. I'll post the schedule when I figure out about how many people I will have, that will change things a lot :)

PROJECT M AT *POUND* V



Project M has announced their official demo and i've been waiting for a while so I could let everyone know we will be running it as full scale as possible at Pound. Project M is a great way for people from both melee and brawl to play together, as well as newcomers who were interested in PM.

This demo will be available to everyone before pound, so that people can get it and practice since the pot will probably be a lot of money at Pound (im guessing a LOT of people will enter lol)

The tournament will run Sunday into Monday and will be $5 or $10/person depending on what you guys think! I think it'd be cool to have $10 per person so i can pay out lots of spots


Public Transportation:

The closest airport is DCA. (Ronald Reagan International). It is .8 miles from the venue and has a shuttle that constantly does trips back and forth.

The Washington DC Metro system is easily accessable from both DCA and the Hotel. This will take you anywhere in DC/Northern VA.

Click here to check out the Washington DC Metro service!


10% AIRTRAN FLIGHT DISCOUNT!!!

I organized a 10% flight discount through Airtran. Go to www.airtran.com to see if there are any tickets that work for you. If so in order to obtain your discount you must call this number:

1-866-68-EVENT (1-866-683-8368)

The number takes you directly to a representative who will help you.



Event Code: DCA021911
Event Name: POUND 5

You may travel from 3 days before to 3 days after the dates of the tournament.




Tourism:

Because the Hotel is right in Inner-DC you can hop right on the Metro and go visit any of the things in DC if interested! The White House, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, etc, are all only a 10 minute metro ride from the venue/hotel.







Click here to check out the Washington DC Metro service!



Potential Sponsors/Advertising:

I will keep everyone updated with the promotion and advertisement I am doing. I am looking to get a LARGE number of locals and no-names to all events, as I will be advertising through all colleges and LAN centers in the area.


A look back at the previous *Pound*s

We have come a long way since Travis originally hosted the first *Pound*. That was my first tournament and so it's only suiting I took over the tourney afterwards!
