Schedule of Events

Once again I cannot stress enough how important it is for you to be on time for your event. Want to register early if you’re already there? That’s fine. Want to register late because you didn’t show up on time? That’s NOT fine. In order for everything to run smoothly and in a timely manner we need your cooperation with this.

If you are running late, please call and let us know and we can try to work you into the brackets.

Please bring your own controllers/sticks/adapters, though we should be able to spare an extra stick and pad.

Please note while casuals are completely free, please do not hog a station, multiple sets are fine as well as warm ups, but give others a small chance to test skills and see if they would like to enter a tournament. Also, if a station is needed that casuals are being played on, we will ask nicely to stop your game so that we can accommodate tournament players and make things run a little smoother.
