TOURNAMENT @ FUNSPOT / ACAM MAY 29 and 30 - AURCADE EVENT - John's Arcade Impossible Outsiders TOURN

The "official" Funspot tournament may have been cancelled but there is still going to be an AURCADE tournament that same weekend and at Funspot. It's going to be a John's Arcade Impossible Outsiders tournament. This was announced pretty soon after Funspot cancelled the tournament. This is NOT the official ACAM tourney but I will do my best to make it feel the same! 

We have people flying in from all over the country for the event. It's going to ROCK!!

We will have 15-20 games in the tournament. Don't worry about the games in the tournament working or the condition of them. I am all over this topic. It's a priority.

I anticipate between 50-100 people showing up. The numbers are growing daily.

This IS an Aurcade event and the scores will count. I hope you can make it.

Here are all the details. 

======



With the blessing of Funspot, we are going to be putting on a tournament on May 29 and 30, 2015 at Funspot / ACAM in Laconia, NH.

John's Arcade Impossible Outsiders - BROFEST 2015!

This is going to be a John's Arcade, Arcade Impossible, Arcade Outsiders, and The Kill Screens tournament. That's right, come join me, Gregg Hansen, Shawn "Phetishboy" Williams, Matt McCarthy, and more for a weekend of stupidity and fun! This is going to be a VERY casual tournament. If you're not good at the games, don't worry about it! If you're good at the games you'll be among good company. There is going to be some good competition too! 

This will be an AURCADE.com tournament and the scores will count! 

Thanks to our Director of Operations, Kris Gack, we have many, many sponsors for this event. Check out some of them below! We have about $2,000 in raffle and tournament prizes! How awesome!

Anyways, we are expecting a huge turnout. It's gonna be a blast. And, the fun will not end at Funspot. Most of us are staying at the NASWA resort and we will be having late night beer tastings, song sessions on the beach, and old fashioned weenie roasts!

Here are the details. I hope you can make it!

Who can come? YOU! The event is all ages and open to anyone. Don't worry about it! Just show up. It's gonna be fun. You don't need to be good at these games. But if you are, there will be plenty of competition. Trust me. Just have fun. :)

How much does it cost? There is no entry fee for the tournament. It is free! However, we hope you purchase a t-shirt and raffle tickets as the funds generated by those sales will be used for the prize pool and donations to ACAM and Scott Gaulin's family.

How do I register? Please e-mail Andrew at 34k@johnsarcade.com and tell him your name, city, and state so he can have your badge ready for you when you arrive.

What games are in the tournament? This is a secret! :) We will announce them the day of the tournament. Don' worry, the are GOOD games. We plan on having 15 games in the main tournament and will also have a side"manufacturer's challenge" tournament with three games.

What are the dates and times for the event?

NASWA Beach Bar - May 29th, 2015 - 12pm EST - Meet and Greet

FUNSPOT - May 29th, 2015 - 2:30PM EST - CLOSE - TOURNAMENT

NOTE: The end time for the tournament and prize ceremony / live Arcade Outsider's Podcast is subject to change. We are going to play it by ear!
