WHA - WHY DIDN'T MY GAME GET INCLUDED?
No feedback / hardware / something - go read the planning thread.
OKgamers has spent the last 5 years helping gaming groups we know about in OK; as for this event - no PC Lan?  We know of no PC community in OK that'll work with conventions and events / want to promote / etc - you one, contact us.
Board Games?  Because they have stores to support them, we aren't out to "compete" with businesses and duplicate efforts. 
No DnD - same as Board Games and because we have no DM's on Staff.  No LARP - same as DnD.  No your console game - read above :)
PS3 vs 360 - Console Choice =  we go with the largest community backed event for this - Evo.  They went PS3, so did we. 
(Due to MvC3 issues we've heard about, FUTURE events may be 360; we need to see who is who in the community, and after this event, we'll be discussing it to make sure we are good to go!)


Times:

Setup & Signups open - 11am (tentative) to 12:15pm
Tournament Start time - 12:30pm (tentative)
Halo Reach FFA - 12:30pm
SSB Brawl - 1pm
Forza 3 - 1pm
Blaz Blue - 1pm
SSFIV - 2pm
SSB Melee - 2pm
Halo Reach 2v2 - 3pm
Marvel vs Capcom 3 (MvC3) - 3pm

SIGNUPS FOR EACH GAME CLOSE 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE GAME IS SCHEDULED TO HAPPEN; be there BEFORE THAT to sign up!!
(ALL TIMES ARE SUBJECT TO DELAY AT THE EVENT, we do what we can, but issues can arise out of our hands; don't arrive late, that helps.)


Cost:
$5 Organization fee - goes towards covering our flyer printing costs, then towards purchashing more 5yr shirts, that will be given away later (ONE TIME FEE) 
$5 per tournament entered - goes towards that games' pot! (PER TOURNAMENT ENTERED)

Those who pre-reg and state they are bringing hardware will be contacted - if they have a full setup, we'll be waiving their $5 organization fee! 
(Yes, if you just show up with a setup, we'll probably use it, and be able to waive your fee - PLEASE work with us to pre-reg though, so we can know how much hardware we are going to see out at the event!)

No location fee - due to TCC's sponsorship!
No spectator fee - due to TCC's sponsorship!

PLAYING IN ONE TOURNAMENT?  That's $10.  Two events would be $15 total entry, etc.

READY TO PRE-REGISTER?  WANT TO GET THAT FREE SHIRT?
Click HERE TO PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT, AND WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, GET A FREE T-SHIRT!!!

WANT TO SEE WHO HAS PREREGISTERED?  Click here.

YES - Pre-registering is FREE; all we are doing really is getting an idea of who is coming, how much hardware they are bringing, AND OF COURSE - what SHIRT SIZE YOU WEAR, so we can order the right amount of free 5th anniversary shirts!!!!



WHAT DO I BRING?
If you plan on playing in a tournament - your entry fees in cash and your own controller, as extra controllers will not be present beyond what gamers brought to use themselves.  (Cash?  Yes, sorry, no CC machine here guys lol.)

...and maybe HOODIE MONEY?!  SEE BELOW.


THE MORE HARDWARE WE HAVE - the FASTER THE EVENT CAN GO!

To help things run faster:
Are you bringing hardware?  Please try and show up 15 to 30 minutes BEFORE your game starts so we can set it all up, etc. (USE THE ELEVATOR!!)
Make sure you've read your games tournament rules.
MAKE SURE YOU REVIEWED THE MAP - and you know where your going - 2nd floor area of TCC Metro, as pictured on the map.

Did you say HOODIE?
As you may know, OKgamers 2011 shirt design - is what we are giving out FOR FREE AT THIS EVENT TO THOSE THAT PRE-REG, etc! 
We know that in the past, the 2009/2010 design was put out as a hoodie, and was very popular; to not leave you that love hoodies "out in the cold", we are offering this ONE TIME CHANCE to order hoodies AT THIS EVENT!  It'll have the 2011 "OKgamers 5 year Anniversary" design on the front, and then the OKgamers logo on the back, we'll have one there for show.  Black pull over hoodie, white design, just like the 2011 5yr Shirts.  (One Time = we don't have a deal with the printer like we did before, different printer.  So, this is what we can do.)
SO, if you want a 2011 OKgamers hoodie, you'll only be able to order at this event!  We'll be charging you at cost, so if you want to order one, bring cash for your size(s) to order:
S-XL = $17   2X = $20   3X = $21   4X = $22   5X = $23  6X = $24

OKC'ers can work with FurysWrath to get theirs, Tulsa area myself, and we are looking into shipping options for those outside those areas.

I'll be running Melee here, I most likely need a ride as my car is a 2 seater sports care and can't carry a lick of equipment, its also uninsured, lol.

I have at least 3 full setups myself, a couple more will probably be sufficient, shouldn't be a need for pools. Should we invite Kansas to this to take all our money?

As for Brawl...  I assume the wii melee setups can be shared and my laptop can be used to run the bracket, but I'll be absorbed in the MvC3 event at the time some others will need to watch the bracket for that.

On that note I can pledge an MvC3 PS3, and maybe 2. I hope you have HDTVs up nya...

Bees. Im always open to DLC characters being allowed, I don't care lol.

I don't know what MvC3 is going to be standard on. 1 it's not out yet and 2 EVO hasn't said anything really.  WHo knows.

FAIR WARNING - this thread is BARE BONES - as a result some of our planning chatter here?  May be cleaned up later as we launch all the sponsors / get this thread REALLY GOING!!

Also can we add fighters  ;D

on that note, will there be room for casual set ups? I don't have any in mind, just wondering

Bees - I've made the entry fee and controller thing as CLEAR as I can think to make it lol.

Casual setups - as it is no...
...I KNOW you guys are used to OKgamers - we've been around 5 years.  This is our 5 year ANNI event, and frankly - we've got a big announcement to make...  that REALLY DOES affect things, from who'll be showing up to what all we'll have there...
...I wouldn't assume they'll be any room left for casual setups :)


Solidus - we'll be going full promotion on this event, so we hope to bring both Melee and Brawl players out of the woodworks locally - not to mention randomly from around the area.  Usually Typ_Ex and others would invite those gamers, so of course, please do so.

As for hardware - whatever the users are fine - is fine by us.  I'm sure double entry will happen a lot with Smash, so it'd make sense.


AF - thanks for the PS3 update - like I said we'll probably blow a lot of this off once we are really promoting this thread / aka once I get some of the big sponsors listed, etc.

is it like a "i just ♥♥♥♥ my pants" announcement

cause i need to know so i know whether to bring diapers or not

edit: timmy!

BBCS2? if its out? and if its out beforehand, how long would it need to be out before we can consider it playable?

I would say a monthish beforehand but I doubt it will be out that soon

X_A, you should make a SmashBoards thread for the Brawl/Melee portion. That right there would let more people know about it.
