I hope you can get the place all readied up, that would really help some people out. A good tourny venue is a big tourny venue from my experience, and make it moderately priced, too.

I'm definately going to get something going here - Hopefully I can find enough room in the 15,000 square feet ;) - X_A is putting together a checklist or some other type of guide for venue owners to make sure we have all the mandatory items in place as well as optional features that can make a venue really stand out.

Not if, but when I dive into tournament hosting, I want to make sure that my facility is a place where everyone wants to come because of how nicely it's put together and how smoothly the tournaments take place. . .. hang in there with me - I'm anxious to get this thing going, but not at the expense of a shoddy setup. . .

Well, and as an additional vote of confidence for those watching events in OKC - Cactus Jack's not fooling around here.  He's not only serious about what he's said on here, but the questions he's asked me, and the materials I'm getting to gether as response to those questions tell me - OKC has some awesome stuff coming up soon. 

Also, with the potential of OKC OKgamers staff coming into play, I'm seeing not only the venues but the manpower to help out if neccessary - a big key in throwing events.  This gets me pretty excited, and I'm looking forward to 2007@!

Wow, the scope of this thread is quite interesting. Sorry to bump an old topic, but have there been any notable developments on this prospect?

I provided some info, in the business section for him.  Beyond that - nothing that I know of.  Part of the issue - I haven't asked him / tracked down the usefulness of the info, etc.  I asked once, but between 2 busy guys that own their own businesses, etc - you can see how conversations fall through the cracks heh.

I can bump him, and see what's up.

i would love to see a tournament in okc me and my party alone will make up about 10 to 12 players pls set something up.I cant really make a trip to tulsa to often seeing as how i live in lexington but i have just as high a passion for a tourny as anybody there.I would like to see some ssbm,halo2,and i also notice that even the tournys in tulsa have very few 360 games which would be nice.

Well - and keep in mind - this site REALLY needs to get the word out to all corners of OK - as events are happening all the time, we just don't know about them...  The MAIN reason this site exists is to cure our lack of knowledge and HAVE a central place to post up info, etc.

We might have alot of Tulsa stuff posted right now, but OKC, Norman, etc have had tournaments and events happen in them that have even been posted, the aftermath and archive forums will show that.  It's our hope that gamers will spread the word to businesses, and businesses will use the site to post about their events...  What would be great is if Cactus Jack's also had some events, and of course, posted about them here too :)
