The Big House 3
A National Melee and Project M Tournament
October 12-13, 2013
Ann Arbor, MI



- INTRODUCTION -

The Big House is back. Last year's installment featured two full days of Melee and Project M with over 130 players in attendance, including Mango and Hungrybox. I'm excited to announce that the Michigan community has even bigger plans in store this time!

Why should you attend?
* Huge Melee attendance - the largest active Midwest Melee tournament series
* Full Project M tourney - featuring both singles pools and a doubles event
* Great TO staff - reputation for being extremely well-organized and well-executed
* Competitive experience - high number of guaranteed tournament sets, FC-style
* Casual experience - 2.5 days to play tons of friendlies, including Friday evening
* Big spotlight - two concurrent livestreams by VGBootCamp and UMSmash
* Travel convenience - great hotel venue with a bus to and from the DTW airport
* Michigan community - one of the biggest and most active Smash scenes anywhere
* Plenty to do in Ann Arbor - ranked as one of the top ten college towns in America

- LOCATION -

Venue:

Hilton Garden Inn
1401 Briarwood Cir
Ann Arbor, MI 48108


Third Big House, third new venue! We've expanded with each installment and this year is no exception. The Hilton Garden Inn was recently ranked #1 hotel in Ann Arbor and will be providing a great venue for us. We'll be playing in the Great Lakes Ballroom, which is almost twice as big as the Big House 2 venue.


This is just half of the ballroom!

Travel:
IF YOU ARE FLYING IN

By far the best airport to fly into is Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) which is about 20 miles away from the venue. You are responsible for arranging your own transportation from DTW to Ann Arbor. Please do not bug the TOs for help with transportation without exhausting all of the following options:

1. The Michigan Flyer bus offers round-trip tickets between DTW and Ann Arbor for about $25. The catch is it stops running at 9:00pm each day, so this option is only good if your flight arrives early enough. On their website, set your starting location to Detroit Metro Airport, MI and your destination to Ann Arbor (Kensington Court). From Kensington Court, you're within a 5-minute walk to the venue!

2. Bill's Van Service offers a $49 flat cab fare from DTW to Ann Arbor and can accommodate up to 6 passengers at once. The price stays at $49 no matter how many passengers are on board, so try to split that cost with others who are flying in at around the same time. The tournament Facebook event is a useful resource for finding others to split with.

3. The Custom Transit Ann Arbor Airport Shuttle offers a $40 dynamic cab fare from DTW to Ann Arbor starting at one passenger. The price increases with each additional passenger with this service, so this option is only good if you're flying in at a really weird time and can't find anyone else to split with.​

IF YOU ARE DRIVING IN

Parking is free right in front of the hotel. 10-second walk into the venue!

Housing:
The Hilton Garden Inn is your best housing option in order to stay inside the venue and connect with other Smashers at the Big House 3 room rate of $129/night. I understand this is probably more expensive than some other hotel options in town, but I promise you that in comparison, the Hilton Garden Inn provides a much bigger and better room whose cost you can split with several more people. As an extra incentive, we'll give away a free Big House 3 t-shirt to anyone who books a room at the Hilton Garden Inn for the Friday and Saturday nights of the tournament. Just show us your room reservation during check-in.

Here’s how to book a room:
• Go to www.annarbor.hgi.com and click More options at the top right
• Click Add special rate codes and type Group code UMSMSH for the Big House 3 room rate
• Make sure your arrival, departure, and adults are set appropriately, then click Check Availability

UPDATE 9/26/13: All rooms are sold out! See you at the hotel.


The Hilton Garden Inn website.


The super spacious King Suite! You can probably cram 5-6 people in one if necessary.

If you absolutely cannot afford to pay for traditional housing, try CouchSurfing to stay with an Ann Arbor local for the weekend. The idea might sound creepy, but I personally know people who have used CouchSurfing before and they've had a good experience with it. Keep an open mind, as there will be very limited free housing available from Smashers in Ann Arbor.​


Food:
Inside the hotel (1-minute walk outside the ballroom):
Bar
Snack Pantry

Inside Briarwood Mall (5-minute walk east of the venue):
Chipotle
Panda Express
California Pizza Kitchen

Inside Briarwood Circle (1-minute drive within a half-mile radius of the venue):
Red Robin
Olive Garden
Romano's Macaroni Grill

Around the area (5-minute drive within a one-mile radius of the venue):
Wendy's
McDonald's
Burger King​

You still doing 64 at this?
No, we decided to focus on Melee and PM. I would have loved to run 64, but with the time and space we have, I felt that it couldn't be pulled off at the level of quality I'd expect from a national tournament without diluting the experience of Melee and PM attendees.

we gotta get some crews in! MW might actually get enough good MW players to make a crew finally!
