Competition system live!
We told you when we opened registrations that we’ll have the ability to sign up and create tournaments prior to the event. This is now live, thanks to SirSquid and a bit of coding magic. Check it out - and sign up to your tournaments now to save some time on the day.
Check out the tourmanet sign-up pages here!
If you create a tournament and it surges in popularity, we might be able to offer some additional support.
Friday is going to be soaring for us - but the cool change will sweep through on Friday evening and leave us with a very LAN-friendly mid-20s weekend. The evaporative coolers can push a great deal of air - just in case - but this weekend looks to be ripe and ready for some gaming action.

Packup - 3PM Sunday
Towards the event, many of us are tired and worn out from the weekend. Traditionally, we are usually at the venue till 7-8PM before leaving the venue. This time, our goal is to be out of there by 5PM and we'd welcome any and all hands in achieving this goal for us.
We look forward to seeing you there!
