TOURNAMENT RULES:
Halo 2v2 - later in the thread:  http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,3846.msg46785.html#msg46785
Mw3 2v2 - http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,3855.0   (rules were being worked out, as National Standard is "fluid" currently)


BYO TOURNAMENTS RULES
Any tournament we help run will go by standard National rulesets; whatever the National community for a game uses, is what we'll use.


VINTAGE STOCK DUCK HUNT TOURNAMENTS RULES
Participants will have to stand behind the taped line. You are allowed as many attempts as can be made until Techcon is over; however you must be respectful of other people and not hog the game all day. We will run from 10 am to 9:30 pm, announcing a winner after that.


BEAT THE PROS OVERALL RULES:
All pros will have cash on hand to hand out if anyone manages to best them; they'll be prepared to give out cash to anyone who can best them in $5 and $10 increments. 

HOW MANY TIMES CAN I PLAY: as many as the pro and time allows; depending on interest, at first we may limit it to once per person so everyone gets a chance at the pro - afterwards at the discretion of the Pro, he'll allow retries. 

HOW LONG DOES THIS RUN: off and on throughout the day, as long as the PRO can go, or has money to offer :)

HOW MANY TIMES CAN I WIN - Once; no one will get rich; but bragging rights are way more sweet anyway.  Anyone that can best a Pro will have a photo taken with the Pro and officially touted as "THE BEST".

HOW ARE THESE GUYS "THE BEST"?
The Pro's for SSBB, SC4, and BB have attended 10 to 50+ events for their game, coming out on top in the state, and have won multiple tournaments for their games.  They may have rivals in the area, but at this event - they'll be the best there - or will they?  BRING YOUR A GAME. 

(PPL has not had any recent tournaments; the Pro for this game has had outstanding runs online, and stepped up to own anyone that will try.)

If I want to bring some sc2 friends out for some 1v1 action I'm assuming that would be alright? Several people I've talked to are getting stoked about getting a tournament going next month or in Feb.

I am very interested in this!

Is there open gaming anytime besides just 10-10? i.e. can we arrive early or stay late?
I am a big fan of some older console games as well, like snes and n64 (super mario kart, mario kart 64, goldeneye 007, f-zero x, super street fighter, etc.). Will there be a place I can set these up if I bring them? Would there even be interest?

Is there a size limit?
What about snacks/drinks/food?
Is there a cost other than to enter tournaments?

Thanks!

Bring what you want.. the guy running the show.. is pretty cool and there has always been old games there like duck hunt and stuff.. and people to play it.. now i dont think you will run into anyone goooood at them anymore.. but ya feel free to bring them...

size limit?  no not really as long as there is space.. we havnt had a problem yet..

snacks/drinks/food?      yes, they will have food and drinks for sell.. if im not mistaken they will have pizza hut's pizza there

additional cost?     there is a entry fee to come in which i believe it was 5$ last year. BUT!! if im not mistaken.. if you bring your own set up your way is free..    plus any food or drinks you buy

and as for gaming time 10-10.. if a tourny happens to go a little longer then yes they will keep it open.. but other then that no.. since its at a school they need that room cleaned so they shut down at 10 and have to clean up..

We will probably primarily bring laptops, maybe one desktop setup or so if we come. Do we need power strips and network cables and such? How much is actually supplied there?
Can we bring any of our own food or drinks?

Is there usually a pretty good group there for open gaming?
Can we bring a TV if we want to?

Okay. I am greatly interested in this, as I am going to talk to my parents about this tournament to decide whether or not I can go.

If I can go, I will be able to bring my PS3 with a normal controller and a arcade stick, as we would love a 2 player KOF XIII tournament during the convention. I am going to help provide support for the KOF scene in Oklahoma to get people involved in the series, and help newcomers get to know how the game works. :)
