Title: 'Suite' Events! CHECK UPDATES! RSVP ASAP FOR MOVIE/TOURNEY!
Post by: FanFicGuru on February 24, 2007, 12:43:52 PM
Alright, so LadyKaren and I have been sending a few messages back and forth and we thought it would be cool to start arranging events that suite-holders could participate in. I"m going to be having 2 suites reserved and LadyKaren has another one.

(Of course, this is also for other people too. Just thought I'd start by offering invitations to people who have suites, and anyone else who wants to come, feel free! ^_^)

Friday:
From 2-8 PM: Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha, Season one will be showing in our room. Please RSVP to secure a spot.

Roughly 9 PM: UPDATE! We are no longer making a Spider Man 3 trip...
HOWEVER, we are making a Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End trip. ^_^ This makes it all the more important that you RSVP and send the money so I can pre-order tickets because this movie is going to be packed for sure.


Saturday:
11-5PM: Gunslinger Girl will be showing. Please RSVP if you are interested in attending this block.

Unfortunately, due to the Play! symphony, and my desire to nab plenty of goodies...I will not be at the dinner on Saturday. If people still want to get together, talk to Karen, she may still be interested.

Sunday Night:
Noon-6PM: Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A's will be showing. Please RSVP if you wish to attend this block.

NOTE: For now, please RSVP for the shows you wish to see in order 1-3, I will try to fit everyone in but if the room isn't big enough I will have to limit the number of viewers in the room since I don't want to get in trouble. You can RSVP for multiple events at once.

Gaming Tournament! We'll have Smash bros. and SoulCalibur II as well as Guilty Gear X2 set up the two suites (games will alternate) I"m renting out. We'll set up a bracket and entry fee will be 3 dollars. Depending on the number of contestants, we'll have 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes for each game. We'll have a first place prize for sure. Due to the nature of having people in our room and fire hazards, we'll need to rotate players in and probably set up times for people to show up. No lingering about in the executive floors. I don't want to get in trouble. >_< We'll work it out. (CHECK UPDATE ON PAGE 3)

Anyways, those are my ideas as of right now. If any of you would be interested or have any other suggestions, please let me know! Thanks!

I"ll set up some sort of RSVP system so we have an idea of the number of competitors.

From there, I'll figure a rough 'prize' budget and then I can start announcing potential prizes. ^_^

Ill be willing to go ^_^ May I bring some friends along too? Im sure they would love to win the tournament considering how pro they are xD btw for SSBM there should be both singles and teams.  Cause I fair better in teams then I do in singles.

Prizes:  If you want you could make it singles 4 dollars. Keep 2 dollars and put the rest into a pot and split that pot 10 30 60. From there you could hold teams and have each team pay 6 bucks. This time you can keep 3 or 2 if you want the pot to be bigger.  and then just do the same thing. It saves you a lot of money :3 Everyone wins. But mostly you and the 3 people who win the tournaments xD

Why would I keep any of the money? That would seem a bit unfair. lol...

I'd put all the money back into prizes. I can figure out the details more as it grows closer. ^_^

Well there's still alot that can happen between now and Fanime, so everything I say now could change later.

But i'd say i'm definitely in for Spiderman. Last year I missed the X-Men 3 group and i've always been upset by it (although...that movie sucked).

Also I might be up for at least being at the gaming tournament.

Had to post this twice FFG. XP

Taking some of the money off of the entree fee is called a house cut :3 Thats what I would do. Plus its extra money for you and you wouldnt be the first to do this. Especially since its like, here some money for you since your running the tournament and inviting all of these people into your suite. Plus it can also help pay off the suite so we get to pay less ^^d

Don't make me out to be the bad guy here. lol

There are about 2 others who are thinking about hoppin' aboard. I need to talk to each of them first and see if either of them would work out.


Or, I could just put three names on the wall and throw a dart.

Might do that...

I can play both SSBM and SCII.  I still maintain that I'm a strong casual player @SSBM, regardless of what other people may claim.  And I've seen better days in my SCII game, but I have been a competitive player in my day.  Whether I'll be free for the tourneys is still unknown at such an early date. XD;

Late Saturday night I'll probably hold a Naruto 4 and/or DBZ Tenkaichi 2 tourney.

Of course those of you whom hate/d my guts, you know who you are, are obviously not invited.

Those of you who were nice...like FanFic...are more then welcome. I might even bring some snacks for everyone ^_^

Yes. I'm also planning some Video Programming.

Mainly a few 13 ep. series such as SoulTaker, Gunslinger Girl and maybe Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha...

Also some movies, like Howl's Moving Castle, Karas, Jin-Roh and a few others.

These movies and series would run during the day when I had someone respnsible to watch over the room.

Semi-formal Italian joint. Roughly 20 bucks per plate.

I've narrowed down the video programming to the following series/Movies:

Series-
Gunslinger Girl  info (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=2947)
SoulTaker info (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=288)
Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha info (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=4576)
Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A's  info (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=5770)
Giant Robo  info (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=669)

Movies-
Jin-Roh  info (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=161)
Karas  info (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=5002)
Howl's Moving Castle  info (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=889)
Castle of Cagliostro  info (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=127)
Rahxephon: The movie  info (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=212)

We can have 3 series and 1 movie. The first series will be shown on Friday afternoon from 2-8 PM. The second series will be showing Saturday from 11AM-5 PM and the final series will be sunday from noon until 6 PM.

Due to me not wanting to get busted by Hotel staff, the amount of people who could come would be limited, so I think what we'll do is have people who want to see certain shows express their interest in one series that they wish to see. They can't repeat their visits, so for example, let's say I let about 15-20 people see a series. Person A can come in for Series 1, but not series 2 or 3, so there's room for other people.

Also, I will need 2-3 volunteers per block to be 'responsible' people that I can exchange cell phone numbers, etc. with in order to moniter the rooms. Some form of reimbursement can be figured out...PM me if you're interested. (18+ only need apply...in case something happens it's best if it's not a minor)

Anyways I"m going to put up a poll for series. The top 3 will be shown at the event. I will then put up a poll for the movies. The movie showtimes will be posted later.

We'll vote via Elimination. Voting will last 5 days. VOTE!

EDIT:

Ok, here are a few things I want to put out there right now:

1) I do have roommates. 3 of them. I want to be able to respect them as much as possible as well as their needs, since they all did pay their share. So, as much as I'd like to host all this stuff, I may not be able to at times and the showings may need to be delayed, rescheduled, cancelled or moved to another room (maybe Karen can help with this). Just wanted to let you guys know that now.

2) I will be VERY insistent on a low-noise level. The last thing I want is to get kicked out of the nice room that I paid a decent amount for because people were getting too rowdy/noisy. If you want to be rowdy and noisy go to the bigger video rooms downstairs. The video programming in the suites is intended for fun, yes...but I would prefer that it remained calm. If viewers cannot respect this rule, I will ask them to leave nicely, twice. If they continue to cause trouble, I will call security.

3) I've decided to cap the room capacity at 20 people, for now. The rooms are about 500 square feet, and I want to make sure everyone can see the TV well and it's not all cramped. When we get to the room I'll probably have access to the internet and I can update this thread. Or, I can update outside the room too. Like "Max capacity: 25" or whatever.

4) The Hilton (thankfully) locks the elevator from accessing the top floors where the suites are unless you have the right keycards (Think Shinra Inc. from FF7). So, I will be escorting all Video Game tourney contestants as well as Video Programming 'guests'. Yes, you will be 'guests' and I will do my best to give you a fun video programming experience in a small, intimate environment with fellow anime lovers. ^_^ That being said, I will be making 'lists' for each series and the game tournament. It'll be a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE based on RSVP. I will start taking requests when the series are decided. I will accept (up to) 25 people...with the last 5 people on an 'alternate' list in case the room isn't quite big enough to comfortably fit that many people. You CANNOT attend more than one session. So, choose your series carefully once they are chosen. Unless there is a generally low turnout, in which case I may make exceptions. I won't decide that for sure for another 2 weeks.


I think that's about it for now. I will type up official 'Rules' sometime soon regarding the room and conduct, etc.

Oh, any Video game tourney people PLEASE RSVP NOW. I need to start getting a list together. PM me! Don't just post a message here. I might miss you. When you RSVP please include the following information:

Name-
Game contest you will enter (SC 2, SSBM, Guilty Gear X2)

Please bring a photo ID. I will compile a list for each game.

I know it sucks, but in order to keep the number of people in the room regulated, I'd prefer if you registered for one game.

Entry fee will be 3 dollars per person. The prize value will correlate with the number of people who are participating.

That's about it for now. I'll come back with more info later.

Here's how you RSVP:

PM me with your Name and the Game you are interested in playing and/or the series you'd like to watch in order from 1-3.

When you show up have some sort of photo ID, student ID's are perfectly fine, just so I know who I'm letting into the room.

We will have Guitar Hero (2) probably. If the tournament ends early or we've got some down time people can jam for fun.

Ryu- No problem. I freaked out for a minute...lol This is good though.

Gmontem- I know...tough choices! >_< I want to make sure to get some decent goodies though, I mean, if I can grab a shirt and a soundtrack that's like, 40 dollars worth of goodies just for standing in line for a bit and it pays back some of the ticket cost with goodies. hehe

Hi LadyKaren/FanFicGuru

Few questions;

How come it's SC2? SC3's been out for a while...even though it sucks compared to 2  :oops:

Same with GGX2; Slash is out...unless you have a modded system or jp system...I'm sure someone is willing to lend it for the gaming tourney.

Also, is it possible to keep the tourneys away from conflicting with the Con tournies? Are there even going to be any at the con...?

If I enter, I hope I can play with my T5 joystick ^^ That's if I do go...

Thanks for your time, let me know o.o

Post by: FanFicGuru on May 14, 2007, 09:58:09 AM
I decided to go with SC2 since SC3 will be offered at the Fanime tourneys downstairs.

Same with GGXX, it's still a solid game and if you want to play Slash you can play it downstairs in the gaming room.

The tourney for all of the games will be held at the same time: 9 PM on Sunday the 27th. I highly doubt that it will conflict with any of the other gaming tournaments.

Also, everyone who's asked me for a copy of the schedule so far: wait a little longer. I want to see how many people are interested and then send them all out at once instead of one email here and there. Thanks.

To everyone asking about the Video Game tourney process:

HERE ARE 3 SIMPLE STEPS!

Step 1) PM me with your Name and the Game you want to register for. JUST ONE GAME PLEASE.

Step 2) Make sure to bring 3 dollars for registration the night of the tourney.

Step 3) Meet me in the LOBBY OF THE MARRIOTT AT 8:45! I will escort you up to the room.

That is all. We will decide matches by throwing names into a hat and making a bracket.

I believe I have 4 signed up for SSBM, 3 for SC2 and 2 for GGXX...something like that.

if you are unsure whether you are being counted in the tourney, re-send me a PM. Better safe than sorry.

Hi,

Just wondering why can't we both enter 2 tourneys? I read something about people in the room...but if we're entering 2 tournies, it'd be the same person in the room...that saves space ^^

Also, why not make it an official tourney like all other tournies? You know, like $5 entry fee, 70/20/10% pot split, best 2 games out of 3, double elimination. I've ran many tournies for a long time, but it's just a thought!

FanFicGuru, pmed you w/info.

Thanks!

Well, there is a $3 fee, and from the looks of it I don't have enough people to constitute having one person per game. So starting immediately you may now ENTER MULTIPLE GAMES.

However, you still need to pay $3 PER GAME YOU WISH TO ENTER. So, if you're playing SSBM, bring 3 dollars, if you're playing SSBM and GGXX bring 6 dollars and if you're playing all three bring 9 dollars.

Everyone-

I'm terribly sorry I didn't post anything sooner. Firstly, I couldn't get my laptop hooked up to the TV. So, video programming got shot. Secondly, we had 2 additional roommates that I wasn't planning on before which made things a bit more complicated. I was busy chaperoning and running around doing Press stuff this year and I found that Sunday night would be bad for the competition since I would be leaving the next morning. I'm really sorry for those of you who may have waited in the lobby as I meant to post its cancellation earlier on.

Hopefully for next year it will be better organized and we'll host the gaming competition.

Thanks to everyone who expressed interest in my events an I will be in touch.
