Championship Weekend is Upon Us!

AADL-GT Pad Logo

It's mid-December, and you know what that means... the AADL-GT 2007 Grand Championships have arrived, the culmination of months of preliminary rounds with big prizes on the line! But first, a warm-up Super Smash Bros. Regulation Tournament for Low and Bottom Tier Characters only, Friday Night 12/14 at 6 PM. Then, the action continues on Saturday 12/15 with the Wildcard tournament for grades 6-12 at Noon, and then the 2007 Grand Championships starting at 2:00. Then, the weekend wraps up with a tour through the Mario universe at the Mario-Rama, Sunday 12/16 from 1-4 PM for All Ages!

The biggest news is that huge thanks are due to Nintendo of America, who have donated a brand-new, even-harder-to-get-a-year-later Wii for the grand prize winner on Saturday! The prize pool also includes an iPod Nano, an iPod shuffle, and a Nintendo DS! Read on for more details...

Also, don't miss the first ever AADL-GT Awards and Grudge Banquet, featuring the Clan Cup, Player's Choice Awards, and Hall of Fame Inductions Friday Night, 12/21, at 6 PM. Also, the Grand Championships will be broadcast on Comcast channel 18 live at 3 PM on 12/15 and then again on 12/21. We'll also be taping the Grudge Buffet for later broadcast too.

Then, over winter break, we've got lots of Open Play, Winter Break Pokémania, plus even a DS fest or two to keep you busy as the long, cold off-season stretches out before us... so stay tuned for a season wrapup after the GCs and full winter break gaming details.

2nd post!


Ok, guys, don't get into post counting, or someone could get hurt.

Also, Eli forgot to mention that tonight we will be rocking and/or rolling with the total awesomeness that is ROCK BAND, so everybody come ready with an answer to the question "ARE YOU READY TO ROCK!??!?!" (Hint: YES!!!)

Hey Eli have you ever thought of streaming the events via web. I'd enjoy being able to see John get 4th again.


oh im really srry to disapoint you but i will not get 4th or worse...Belive it!

PS: scraper bike.

just think about that. it will set in in about 26 hours from now.


We've tried webstreaming a couple of times, but the infrastructure isn't quite ready yet. It will happen, though not this weekend.

You guys may also be interested in another new feature ejk whipped up: All-time rating leaderboards, which allow you to quickly see who's got the best ratings and most experience. Some interesting surprises in there. Not so surprising is the fact that [gtplayer:143] is the first player to reach Level 50.

Also, you guys may wish to sound off on this thread elsewhere on the site. See you soon!


Who do u know that can miss a whole season and then come back and be on top?

Answer: ME


Eli, as far as that other thread goes, I'm going to hazard a guess that 50% of the people on here don't even know that there is another part to this site.

And I answered them to the best of my ability, but if they have further questions I won't hesitate to answer.

Awesome! Disregard my email, then. Tom, thanks for bringing Rock Band today, it was just too fun. Hopefully we'll be able to do that during some of the open plays after Christmas, I know ejk is dying to try it too. Maybe we should put together an IT department band.... we could call ourselves The Roaming Profiles.


I guess everyone is too busy practicing to be on the blog. Good luck to all!

shin: what time does the clan cup start? sorry this was already posted :(


Clan cup will start at 6 PM on Friday 12/21. Thanks for a great season, guys! Full post and voting for player's choice awards coming monday night.

We've got just a few diehards here for mario-rama so it's a pretty low-key event. We're playing Mario & Sonic at the Olympics, though, which is really a blast with 4 people.

I also bought Rock Band last night. I couldn't resist.


yea riley beans fo da first place

eli, one of the members of our clan isn't going to be able to make it to the clan cup. Our we allowed to have a sub.

Also just wanted to thank all the library staff for making such great tournaments


Mario-rama was pretty tight. It came down to me and Dale in the final round of sonic and mario at the olympic games, and we tied in the skeet shooting contest. so for a tie-breaker we played a 6-game 1-set match of mario tennis. We nwas neck and neck then dale pulled away and suddenly the score was 5 games to three with dale in the lead and with the serve. So becase im big chi #1 in the aadl i couldnt go out like that so i tied it back up at 5 games. then i win my 6th one. So now ive only gots 1 game left and its my serve so im like ooh its mine right? wrong Dale comes back and tis it at 6 games. The tiebreaker starts I sweep thte first the first 4 but then dale takes the nextt 5. My moralle is all low, ut the he double faults and im all like ive got a chance now. I in te next pont making it 6-5 with me up. Dale takes the next point. It is 6-6 but then i ace him twice. The only reason that i could do it was...
Because.....
I"M BIG CHI NUMBER ONE IN TE A A D L. OOH
"Play it to the bone"


Please note: Big Chi (No. 1 in the AADL OOH esq.) is very creative. He actually edged out dale in skeet shooting by one point to nab first prize ($35), and Dale got second ($25). All 7 attendees got t-shirts.

Clans will need to field a 4-player team to participate in the Clan Cup. Subs are allowed so long as they aren't a member of another clan in the clan cup, but remember that the prizes go to the players who play in the clan cup, so subs would get the prize. What they do with it is up to them, but they get it.


is that next sat.? and clan us who should our team be and are roysters coming if they r i think cisco should sit out

Awww You didn't have to tell the so soon it would of been fun to lead them on at least 4 a litle while.
Anyway swordmaster im just wondering who are our 4 are gonna be?
BTW Johninabox aka iz cooler than is funny every1 should look at the leaderboard you might get a kick
"Play it to the bone"


that will depend on elis answer to this question

since we have to send 4 players in the mario kart part of the clan cup do we have to use those same 4 players for the smash singles part too considering we advance?

for example since i suck at kart i proly wouldnt wanna be one of the 4 to play the mk round but id wanna play the smash singles part, is that within the rules?

uhhhmmm so like... if we send a team of me, cisco, lima, and shin, will Mike S. and omega still get prizes?

that is to say, will the two non-participating members still get something?

also, i don't think omega is making it.


nah u wont win. B.O.M. will!


im not completly sure but i think yat only the 4 playing get prizes, but once again im not sure. You could just save yourselves the hassle of worriering about it and just give me the prizes after all i am big chi #1 in the aadl ooh.
"Play it to the bone"


nope #1 over all is d-rex then johninabox.. by only 106 points


There are 6 prizes for the winning clan. You can also swap out your members for different 4-player rounds if you have more than 4 present. My point about the 6 prizes is that I will give them to the people who play for your clan at the clan cup, so if you use a sub and you win, I will give the sub one of the 6 prizes. What happens to them after I give them to you is up to you. =)


so someone in a clan could get a prize by being in attendance, but not necessarily playing in the clan cup?


and for the smash part of the clan cup, each clan will send 4 players also to play smash singles right?

if so ive already got the lineup for the clan cup flare, but i wont post it here so youd have to find some other means to contact me
