We realize when it comes to some OKgamers details, not everyone is up to date - so first a quick review of the NVGA, and Supercon.

THE NVGA:
When it comes to grassroots events - the events you can trust to have the best gaming rules and gamers - because it's FOR gamers BY gamers?  One group stands out - the NVGA, or National Video Game Association, and it's long term chapters like OKgamers.  

We care.  Pure and simple.  We want to see a healthy gaming enviroment and scene for our gamers, because afterall, we are all gamers just like you.  That's what the NVGA is, chapters built up by gamers who care, and have banded together for common interests, etc.


THE NVGA SUPERCON:
The SuperCon is the ultimate gaming con that features high level gaming in both console and PC, casual gaming, vendors to showcase their products, exhibits from some of the up and coming gaming vendors and organizations, workshops and panels on all aspects of the gaming industry. Stemming from the NVGA, the SuperCon is a summation of all the ideals that every chapter in the NVGA represent throughout the course of the year. These ideals are blend of COMMUNITY, EDUCATION AND A HEALTHY BALANCE OF GAMING AND LIFE. Whether you are a casual gamer, competitive gamer, gamer enthusiats, or simply a person who is looking for a place to express your inner gamer the SuperCon is the place for you.

CURRENT GAMES: SSBB, Tekken 6, Call of Duty MW2, SSF4, BlazBlue, HALO 3, Unreal Tournament 3, SSBM, Heroes of Newerth, Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2!  (Current GAME list)

What is OKgamers road to Supercon?
So - the Supercon is great - $$$ everywhere, free stuff, a gaming event like no other, and a gathering of NVGA chapters and gamers from ACROSS the USA (and beyond for some games).  How do you get there?!  One way is you attend a Road to Supercon Seeding Qualifier of course!  What is OKgamers Road to Supercon plans?

Well - they are 2 part - what the NVGA has setup, and what OKgamers TO's have put together.

Part 1 - the Road To Supercon - read up here - http://www.supercon2k.com/RoadtoSuperCon.php

So?  Effectively Road To Supercon events are Seeding Tournaments for the Supercon event.  FIRST PLACE - Guaranteed $150 stipend to GET YOU to Denver.  Pretty sweet?  Yup.  Also - no REPEAT winners; once you place you've placed, so you can't go win every regional, etc.  (make sure you read up on the Road to Supercon page linked above!)

*Provided the regional event pulls in at least 15 people for that tournament, more below.

Part 2 - OKgamers Road to Supercon - we roll to Denver in MASS.

It's great that 1st placers get 150 bucks to offset travel expenses, but the TOP FOUR of any qualifying tournament are qualifiers...  What about the other 3 gamers per tournament?  How do 2nd, 3rd and 4th go to represent OKgamers at Supercon?

OKgamers is going to use a series of events to fund raise and "Get our OKgamers there".  

THE OKg SERIES: (Games listed at the bottom)
1st - TCC Metro Campus' Halo 2v2 Regional, and Fighting Gamer Fundraiser.  That event will use the organizing fee charged to fund raise.

2nd- Tokyo in Tulsa 2010 - will have the Fighting Gamers Seeding Regionals.  Because the event already has a location fee, we won't be doing any direct fundraising there, we will take donations.

3rd - FINAL FIGHTERS TOURNAMENT before Supercon -
SSBB, SC4, T6 - http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,3089.0.html
FB - http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=122475617795327

THEN?
We use funds raised at these events, our 'travel pot', to offset gas cost to get there and back, help offset hotel charges, and if we have enough, even help towards providing funds for food while your there!!

Sound awesome?  It is.  Literally, OKgamers and it's Tournament Organizers are helping to facilitate taking our local winners to Denver to represent!!  It will be OKgamers LARGEST Out of State trip ever, and the Supercon is well worth the trip!  ( this will be my third one! )

*WHATS THE CATCH? Make sure you read the Road to Supercon page.
As always, we are limited by 2 things - hardware, and attendance.  As mentioned before, if you can help bring hardware, please do!
ALSO - attendance - if a Regional game does not have 16 or more people, it will not qualify as a seeding regional event, and there will be no stipend for travel.  The games chosen - have HUGE followings.  If we promote and you help us promote - we should have GREAT turn outs.  We have gamers locally that can help with hardware if they so choose - everything should go great!  However if the local community doesn't show up to rep, we'll simply have normal tournaments, and not regionals.

WHAT ABOUT GETTING THERE ISSUES?
I have a car, as do other TO's.  Some qualifiers may have cars we can use.  After the qualifiers finish June 20th, we'll know who our "top 4 seeds" are.  Who can help with a vehicle, who can go for sure, etc.  Will we be able to help all the top 4's - it comes down to resources.
 - Are you, or do you know a BUSINESS who can HELP SPONSOR OUR TRIP?  
 - DO YOU HAVE A VAN, HOTEL HOOK UPS, ETC?  
We'd love to know about it :)  PM me with your details.


WHAT NOW?
Help us spread the word?!
Join the Facebook Events for these events, telling your friends, handing out flyers, etc!  Word of mouth travels fast!
Helped with Hardware in the past - we'll need your help again as always!

...and GET TO PRACTICING!

Sup Raider - well you guys are already helping us out with our Halo Seeding qualifier - makes sense if you guys want to go as well!  Go rep HxC's part of Oklahoma, etc etc heh.

Anyway - the plan is literally as spelled out as we can get it, but feel free to hit me up here, or talk to me at the May 8th event, we both know we'll be there!
