I have 3-4 who will be there. We can probably bring a pair of gamecubes plus copies of melee. Had no idea others from St. Cloud played this game. PUMPED.

Project M 2.6 is out! Metaknight is an added character. Bayless, could you possibly add in the rules that 2.6 is being used? Just so all the attendees are on the same page.

I'll be there for Project M and possibly Melee teams.

Yeah, all the PM players I know have already switched their Wiis to 2.6. In all honesty, it doesn't really make sense to spend the next 3 weeks playing 2.6, then have to switch back to 2.5b. I'd really encourage you to have this be a 2.6 tournament.

Hey everybody, I just wanted to say thank you so much to everyone that showed up and participated. You guys have no idea how much it means to me that we were able to get 42 participants at our first ever tournament! I was literally expecting 20.

I had an AWESOME time playing, competing, and learning with you guys today and I can't wait until our next one. More announcements about the next tournament (Winter) Warehouse Throwdown 2 will be in the near future. I made a lot of new friends today and can't wait to keep smashing with you all! Please remember to join the MN Smash Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/540421182680998/ and the MN Smash Forum here: http://s6.zetaboards.com/MNSmash/index/

Let's keep growing this incredible community!

Thanks again everybody!

Bayless out.
