DDR, Mario Kart and Super Smash Tournaments: This Weekend!
If you can pry yourself away from your new console -- or get someone to save your spot in line -- come to the Downtown Library this weekend for a series of Videogame Tournaments for all ages! First, we'll have a Dance Dance Revolution Tournament for All Ages, Friday, 11/17, from 6-8:30 PM. We'll have prizes for 1st and 2nd place in the Standard/Heavy Level, as well as a prize for the best Adult / Child Team!
We'll then proceed to the final regular season round of the Super Smash Double Dash Championship Series, Saturday, 11/18, from Noon - 5 PM. This is the last chance for a clan to qualify for the December Clan Cup and Grand Championships, unless you want to take your chances with the wildcards, so bring your best thumbs! Also, this event will be televised live on CTN channel 18, and we all know that all of Ann Arbor will be glued to their Televisions to watch this event this Saturday! Right? Anyone? Be sure to bring a release form if you haven't already.
Finally, we'll have a Kid's Kart TEAM Tournament for Grades 5 and under, Sunday, 11/19, from 1-4 PM, with prizes for the two best teams at the tournament, along with open play. Hope to see you there! Read on for more details.
Also, to answer a few old questions: we will not have a TV in the room to watch the game on saturday, but we will provide live score updates once the game starts. If we have a low turnout (which is entirely possible) you may not miss much of the game, which doesn't start until 3:30.
If you're not already marked as qualified for the Grand Championships, you can win your spot this weekend by placing 4th or better in the finals of any single event. I will also be qualifying the top 64 players on the leaderboard overall like last year to keep the wildcard event short and sweet.
The Grand Championships will be televised, but the broadcast won't start at Noon. We won't know until that week when it will start exactly, but it will probably start after the Clan Cup and the Wildcard quals. We'll see. Again, be sure to bring a signed release form if you haven't already.
The Clan Cup will involve no more than 8 Clans, and possibly less. All Clan Battle Champions are guaranteed a spot; we'll see how this weekend goes and I'll post more details about the Grands after thanksgiving.
See you this weekend! GO BLUE!
