With the recent announcement of the cancellation of FC this summer, I have decided to work on hosting a large scale tournament which will hopefully meet the size and scope of other large out -of-state tournaments, here in Central Florida. The tournament will run a course of 4 days, during which time, we hope to offer several different events in both Melee and Brawl. Here are the details that I am looking at right now:
Dates: Thursday July 17, 2008 to Sunday July 20, 2008
Location: The Central Florida YMCA, the Y will be able to offer us not only a huge basketball court to have the main event, but also a smaller room for check-in and registration, and the Lockheed Martin center, complete with multiple laptops, displays, and projectors.
Also, there's showers, so don't stink up the joint!!
814 W. Oak Ridge Road
Orlando, FL 32809

**Possible schedule of events!** (NOTE: ALL EVENTS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME)
Day 1: Thursday July 17, 2008
11:00 AM - Registration/Check In, Online Confirmation
1:00 PM - Super Smash Bros. Melee Doubles tournament
When Doubles ends, either 1st round of singles pools will begin or Crew battles, depends on how much time doubles takes.
Day 2: Friday July 18, 2008
11:00 AM - Check In for Singles (Check in will only happen if singles did not start the day before)
1:00 PM - Super Smash Bros. Melee Singles Tournament (If pools start the day before, we will continue pools during this time, then progress into brackets). At the end of the tournament, people can play until the venue closes for the day.
Day 3: Saturday July 19, 2008
11:00 AM - Check in registration for Doubles (are you seeing a pattern in the schedules yet??)
1:00 PM - Super Smash Bros. Brawl Doubles Tournament (again, we can start singles early if time permits, otherwise we can do Brawl crew battles).
Day 4: Sunday July 20, 2008
11:00 AM - Check in for Singles (again this will only be if singles did not start the day before, although we will do fast check ins to make sure people did not mysteriously disappear between rounds).
1:00 PM - Super Smash Bros. Brawl Singles Tournament
**If there is any spare time at all during the tournament, we will host random/low tier tournaments provided there is enough interest**
ALSO, let me know if you guys want 64, we can find setups, its just about whether or not people want it.
