And where do they go...?

NORMAN, OK BRAWL+MELEE TOURNAMENT
January 15th-16th 2011 (Saturday & Sunday) Martin Luther King Day Weekend
MLK day means you have Monday off to recover from the awesome overload and plenty of time to get back to your home state and see the sights!

*Please constantly check the first reply at the official Smash World Forum thread. I will be frequently updating it with new participants, equipment needs, side tournament status, OOS housing assignments, and any other relevant information* (http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=291924)

Watch out 2011! Oklahoma will be Smashing Mad with the continuation of Oh Snap! Oklahoma's largest and longest running tournament series is back and better than ever! Brawl players from around the region and beyond can expect the pain to be brought.
The last two Oh Snaps held an average of 100 attendees each!
5 states are interested so far, more to come!
So expect this to be a big epic tourney with big epic payouts!

And after an astounding revival of the OK Melee scene in 2010 we will be reintegrating Melee into this series, thats right Melee will be in full effect! Smashers unite! What this means is that we will bring enough competitive spirit and explosive energy into Oklahoma from across the Smash universe that only a world of ruin will be left in our wake!

Also.... now with Smash 64 and super effective Brawl Minus side events!

Oklahoma has learned alot hosting Oh Snap! over the years. We have both old guard TOs and new blood working to put together an inclusive, smooth running, and most of all supremely fun experience for the Southwest (and maybe even some of those nifty Midwesterners and beyond!) This year HxC Lancenter will be helping us out with equipment and looking for excellent players to consider for sponsorships or support in major national and international tournaments. This tournament will be the first in a series to count toward your reputation with their company, so sign up at their site HERE and do your best! (http://www.hxclancenter.com/league/tournaments.php)

THERE WILL BE HD RECORDING AND LIVESTREAM FROM THIS EVENT SO GET PSYCHED! Our sponsors at HxC Lancenter will be streaming this live. CHECKBACK FOR URL!

PLEASE BE AT THE VENUE ON TIME FOR YOUR BRACKET! It is your responsibility to keep up with your matches. Brackets will be projected on the wall for you to see.

IMPORTANT:
Brawl and Melee will be carried out simultaneously. I expect Melee to go by much more quickly. If you are attempting to play both games please do your best to keep up pace on your matches.
Remember that The Mage's DQ rule is in effect:

2 Minutes Late: Warning/Loss of first stock
4 Minutes Late: Loss of first match of set
6 Minutes Late: Loss of set

Leniency my be afforded if you are in a tournament match for the other game but you must immediately move to your next match once the current one is completed.

If you have an extenuating circumstance which may cause you to leave the venue please inform me beforehand, I will afford leniency at my discretion, but ultimately when it is time to progress, we will continue the tournament in the interest of keeping the our schedule.

Games & Format

Brawl & MeleeSingles & Doubles, as well as Smash 64 Singles will have dedicated double elimination brackets.

Side Events: Brawl Minus, Duelist, Ladders, Crew Battles. These will take place tentatively given time constraints and setup availability.

Fees

Venue: $10 for 1 tournament, waived if you bring a full setup, -5 dollars if you bring a TV.

Melee and Brawl Singles: $10
Melee and Brawl Doubles: $10 per person ($20 per team)
Smash 64 Singles: $5

Side Events:

Other side events if time permits (Crew Battles, Ladder & Duelist) to be determined on the spot.

Venue Fee Discounts

FULL SET UPS (Console + Game + TV) NEEDED: TVs MUST BE LAG FREE! 18inch is a plus.

Full set up (Wii/GC+Game+TV) and we use it = Free admission
Part set up (Either Wii/GC+Game or TV) and we use it = - $5
Full set up and we don’t use it = - $5
Part set up (TV) and we don’t use it = - $2
Part set up (Wii/GC + Game) and we don't use it = - $1
(We should be using all of the viable setups, TVs are a lot harder to bring than a system and game)

The more setups we have the faster the tournament will go! Meaning more time for side events and after-parties,or simply an earlier departure time if you want to get home!

Flier for hype purposes. Embed it into your webpages, blogs, etc.

Not an okgamers sponsored event so I just included the basic OKgamer url logo provided on the front page to spread word about the site.

This flier can be resized to fit on an 17 x 22 poster, and 8.5 x 11 poster (regular paper size) or a 4.25 x 5.5 handout flier without any significant loss in fidelity. Click to download full resolution file.

Due to overwhelming interest, we have reduced the Venue Fee to a flat $10.
Waived if you bring a full setup.
Halved if you bring a partial setup (TV preferred)

Well we have alot of decent players here, they just aren't active on smashboards.
Bassem, Kurohito, etc.

Chozo if you know others please be sure and let them know Brawl is going down.

Melee turnout is looking nice, but I just don't know brawlers, let them know please!

Its pretty expensive to print them. Those that have intercession get school prints that they can use.
I've been trying to get OU to fund them but their committee takes alot of time to deliberate and they won't be able to decide until its too late.
If you know an independent sponsor, go ahead and by all means get them printed, otherwise I'll probably just get 1 up in each gamestop, one at the game exchange, and 1 at the hastings.

Yo, we need more setups. We really need TVs! Try and bring CRTs of a medium size. If you bring a full setup the Venue fee will be waived (although we can always use donations as I don't even know if were going to be able to break the venue price because Colorado and Arkansas flaked out I believe.)

http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=167641283266488

Right now we can use as many TVs as you can throw at us. I was shooting for 40 but right now we have like 30, but the more the better because we have to divide them between games as Melee and Brawl will be running simultaneously!

I also want to talk to you about the place your looking at give me a call tomorrow or over the weekend.

Wiis do not have VGA ports, of course we can come down and help you out.
What is the final count on the hardware you are providing? TV/Wiis/discs
I had the university give me a second table just for you to set your laptops on, it will be next to the registration table.

Alright guys, 1 day left! A few notes:

The parking garage is free on weekends.

Also quick update on time and place.
First of all While setup is at 9 we probably won't actually be getting our hardware in until 10 or so due to the amount of time it takes the building staff to put in the tables and other BS, so push everything back by an hour, that means teams will start around 1PM, so please try and get there beforehand.

Also it should be noted that this is on the third floor of the union, please see the indoor map of the third floor that I have provided in the original post. Be aware that there is a wedding taking place also on the third floor of the union, try not to crash the wedding to hard.

Timmy hoping the TV transport situation got worked out I have to house Houston tomorrow. If your boys can't bring them in the truck I'll try and get someone on them asap.

I would say we need at least 6, if you have extension cords thats cool too.

BTW, I talked to Yawara, he's going to go ahead and come and get all of your CRTs tonight around 9-10.

Despite a snag with 1/3 of the melee bracket having their van break down, tournament was a great success! KS dominated Brawl and DFW took most of Melee, but OK had a strong showing in Brawl Doubles this year!
