It's been years in the making, but Perth is finally ready to go national! DI Another Day - presented to you by a collaborative effort of the Perth Smash community.

This will be a three day event featuring singles and doubles tournaments for Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and Project M. We are expecting very large numbers for this event, so each singles tournament will be held in two stages. Players will compete in pools and the top (x) players of each pool will make it out of that round. Round two will be a double elimination bracket.

If you plan on attending one tournament this year, make it this one. We are expecting attendance from out of state so take this opportunity to learn from their experience - or make them learn from ours!

DATE:
August 28th/29th/30th 2015

COST:
Venue Fee: $20 per person - Required for entry
Price per singles event entry - $10 per person
Price per doubles event entry - $5 per person

All tournament entry fees go towards the pot for their respective games, with the exception of the venue fee.

VENUE:
Engineering Pavilion
Building 215, Room 100
Curtin University
Kent St, Bentley WA 6102

POT BONUSES:
Melee Singles: $250
Melee Doubles: $75

There probably won't be qualifiers as this is all a community funded tournament we do not (at least at the moment) have any sponsors or organisations that are helping the funding.

No one answering on Facebook so I'll ask here. Are these dates locked in? I don't want any complications when I take time off work.

Looks about $220 return at the moment. (Really bad flight times though lol)

Dont think I can afford anything else on top of that without housing :<. Guess we'll see though...

Really wanna go though!

I can house 6 people or so. Its not ritz (all in one big room) but you will have a bed, blankets ect.
I live a 5 minute busride away from Curtin, near the Trainstation to the city and it costs a mere $25 via taxi from the airport to get to mine.

Anyone who needs a place to stay holla at me.

I might take you up on this bro. Myself and a friend needing a place to stay Tuesday and Wednesday night but we don't get in until 1am Tuesday night / Wednesday morning if that's too much of a problem for you.

I was wondering it is 2 hundred and watever it is dollars to fly up and then 2 hundred or so to get back down or does it cover both up and back or 2 hundred or so

I most likely not make it due to uni n stuff but I was just curious for anything in the future if i wanted to go to perth one day to compete

I'll be running a fundraiser tournament to help get any Easterners that are a bit too poor to get over the line on the 25th, so if you're interested in coming but can't afford it, let me know. I'm not expecting huge sums, so probably don't bother if you're need entire flights. Any left over money will be donated to the pot at DI Another Day.

I cannot attend this
90% attendance required for my uni subjects this semester is sad times

also I'm pretty terrible at PM now in patches where Mewtwo isn't flat out broken
go figure

Hope it goes very well though

Online pre-registration is now live!

https://smash.gg/tournament/di-another-day

Pre-registration is MANDATORY, and closes the weekend before the event - allowing us time to finalize pools. Please contact us if you have any further queries!

Edit: Please note that the site does not have an option for AUD transactions, therefor the entry fees have been adjusted to mitigate this.

Costs work out to:

Venue fee: $20 AUD
All singles events: $10 AUD
All doubles events: $5 AUD

We look forward to seeing you there!
