Really looking forward to this :D
I'll do my best to make sure that it runs smoothly so that everyone has a fun time.
Do you know if any of the other guys in the area might come, like Darc, Enrique, Th0rn, etc.

Also, if anyone in the Bangor area sees this message me if you need a ride.

It's funny you mention that, because I've got bad news and good news. Bad news being I won't be able to make it, but the good news is that I passed the word along to other Maine Melee peeps and it sounds like pretty much everyone is interested in attending. They haven't posted in the thread because few of them use Smashboards these days, they just attend stuff by word of mouth.

I can pass word along to the Bangor FGC guys as well, a lot of them have a mild interest in Brawl (not sure how much they have for Melee or P:M) so it wouldn't hurt.

I know your name from the Mainemontshire player finder thread or whatever it is called.

It is too bad that you are not going to be able to make it Dazwa, but thank you for passing it on.

Oh, and I also passed word along to other New England Melee ppls. They're usually not too keen on making the trek to Maine, but once again doesn't really hurt to ask.

Oh. Well. That explains it!

NOW WHO ARE YOU? Are you the guy that owns Gamebox?
I am a college student that goes to UMaine, I am from Topsham.
I do not own Gamebox, I will be playing. I and a bunch of friends have started playing smash competitively, mostly Project M but the other games too, and figured hey, why not get a tourney going.

Awesome, I wouldn't blame them for not wanting to go all the way up to Maine though, I am putting this tourney on because I would rather not travel all the way down to Mass, at least not until I am better.

Aiming to use CRT TV's only, but I'm unaware of how many we currently have. Wrestlemania most likely has a better answer for this.

If any of the Melee players could bring their memory card it would be greatly appreciated. I currently only have 2 memory cards with everything unlocked, even though I have more than 2 Melee set ups.

Use the same memory card in each cube.

The cube retains all the data after loading it. Once you hit the menu screen you take the memory card out and place it in another cube.

I'm going, obviously :). I'm absolutely sure Banks and Th0rn will be able to make it too unless something crazy happens. Same can be said for Jinjo and Neji most likely. I was shocked to see Topsham, the town I grew up in hosting a Melee tournament Lol

I'll bring at least one setup, possibly two.

That is amazing, I am super excited to get my ass handed to me not going to lie.

is there a cut off on how many people can enter due to the size of the place? also, is there a certain time the tournament must end by?

I'm bringing 2 of my friends, but they will be teaming together. Anyone need a teammate? I'm representing with Fox, Roy, and Doc :p How about you Solar? I remember seeing you at a tourney before, you play Marth right? Also, I'll be bringing at least one setup.

Wow, this turnout is looking like it will be excellent. It's unfortunate that I won't be able to attend, but I hope that this tournament is really good for everyone.
This is going to have a much bigger turn out than initially anticipated this is going to be awesome, looking forward to taking the blame when everything goes to hell.

Public Transit in Maine is terrible. There is a train station right outside of Topsham, in Brunswick and you could definitely get a pick up from there, but that could be costly or problematic. Another option is the Bus here is some info on that http://www.gomaine.org/transit/local-bus/ I know someone who live down south there I'll ask him if he is close enough to swing by if you message me where he would be able to pick you up.

Update: I have access to 7 PM set ups but unfortunately only 3 maybe 4 melee setups, I believe I know where I can find another one. Being able to set them all up in the area, is another story. Fingers Crossed.

I just assumed this was going to be held on a Saturday. Yeah, most Melee tourneys are on Saturdays. I don't have Sundays off, so guess I won't be coming to this. Shame :(

At Last count I have heard of 42 people interested in coming not including 3 who have said they will not make it.
Now assuming that only 2/3 show up that is still 28. Alright, Nice!
Also I have 11 CRT TVs (and 1 too small to play on.)
7 Wiis with Project M
2 GC with Melee and 1 Wii with Melee.
If someone brings a copy of Melee I am sure we can convert 1 of the Wiis to Melee.
You got 2 day, don't forget your controllers, your $10, and to be ready to rock it.
And just because , here is a picture of Dazwa:dazwa:

Does the entry fee cover us for entry into both tournaments? Or is there an additional fee per tournament?
