Some Important Things to Note:
-I actually have to open up my work office in the morning but will arrive to the venue before 12:30 pm. Until then and throughout the day Michael Schuman and Jarrod Klarkhan will be in charge or registration and setup starting from 10am. JT Barber is in full control of the stream and commentary selection of commentators.
-With so many Popular games out currently there is no time to include everything, if you wanted to see one of the latest fighting games please bring a setup yourself for the casual area and you can post up on the Facebook Group page to gather interest https://www.facebook.com/events/388446914551648/?ref=ts
-This is a Bring Your Own Controller event, Delaying any match waiting on a stick for more than 5 minutes will end up in a Loss of your Match, Please come Prepared.
Full Liquor Bar 5 ft from the ballroom door at the Why Not Lounge.
Open from 4pm-2am. 21 and up with ID can go in to buy drinks.
2 things to keep in mind, No outside food or drinks in the ballroom at all. And The Bar is off limits from 8pm-10pm Saturday because of their live comedy show and it's distracting to the Comics when we go in and out.
- I am Also aware that September 29th is also the Same Weekend as Season's Beatings Ascension in Ohio. I was unaware that they would for the first time be in September and Not October so the scheduling conflict was purely an accident(I tried to change my date after the fact but can't due to signed contract and the venue not being available in October at all. I highly suggest you attend SB:a If you can as the level of competition there will be great. CEO Monthlies are a special event and celebration for all those in Florida that wish to attend and come together with everyone else. Thanks for your understanding and best of luck in any tournaments you enter during the rest of 2012.
