DSR Squared Update

With DSR Squared about one month away, i thought i'd take an entry to write a quick recap of what is occuring, some logistics and reminders, and some updated details.

On the weekend of June 14-15th is DSR Squared, the two-day sight-read arrowsmash tournament. Registration and warm-up will occur from 11:00-12:00. Entry fee is $10 if we know you're coming. If you have not let us know that you are participating by May 31st, registration is $15. Opening ceremonies and qualifier will start right at 12:00.

During registration, people will pick a random number out of a hat to determine what order they play the qualifier. At that time you can also elect to play in the Who Wrote What sidequest which i'm bumping from 0.50c to $1 just so we don't have to deal with a lot of change. The Who Wrote What is open to anyone who shows up to the tourney, not just registered participants. If you participate, you'll get a sheet of paper that will be used to fill out song titles and who you think wrote the chart. All charts are written by either Tyler or me.

Day One will end when there are 16 people left in the tournament. We expect that this will conclude sometime in between 20:00-21:00. After that, there'll likely be interest in a cash poker game or some other socialising, but there's nothing formal planned.

Day two of the tournament will start at 11:00 with the Mulligan 8. Review the full rules for details on that side tournament. We expect that that tournament will take roughly an hour. The final 16 will then be given a warm-up period before playing their matches. We expect that day two will last until about 19:00.

If you have not told us whether or not you are coming or if your status has changed, please be sure to let tyler or i know directly or update your status on the facebook event page. if you're coming in from out of town, drop some information about when you're going to be showing up and if you have any needs from us (such as being picked up at the airport for those that are flying).

Housing shouldn't be a huge concern as we have Tyler's place that has a lot of space for people as well as some other random people who can provide some limited housing. It would be nice, though, if i could get some confirmation as to who is available, as i know that some things may have changed depending on graduations and other such nonsense. I know that some of the utah people were interested in getting a hotel. If you want to explore that option, do so now, since the olympic trials are going on during this time, so hotels are likely already booked up.

There's a remote chance that due to circumstances outside of my control, i might not be present for a couple of days before or after the tournament, and possibly (but unlikely) on saturday morning. I'm not sure what the full details are on that or how flexible it will be until the week before at the earliest. I have no isuses giving up my key for people to stay at my place if i'm out of town and people need a place to stay.

Is it worth it trying to set up housing at this point? Or is there so much room that it won't take much to do once everyone's there?

with the number of people showing up and how much room is open at tyler's dad's place, i'm not too worried about it. i'll just remind people to bring sleeping bags and such.

tackling two birds with one stone here...

My co-worker bailed, so with Igene coming in my car (are you still coming with us?), that's 4. (Myself, my brother, Emily, and Igene). And we'll need housing.

Yeah, that should be doable. I take it with the bags it'll be squishy?

Just as comfy as it was before...unless your car has more room and you want to take that instead.

I suspect mine does (it's a hatchback, after all), but it doesn't matter to me that much. Less gas consumption, but no subwoofer?

heh...yeah, but the sub I have in there now is bigger so it might have to come out for the trip.

Ah, okay. So it doesn't matter to me even more, heh.

When were you thinking of leaving? I realized today that I have some meeting with the INS (omgz la migra are gonna deport me ohnoes!) in SF at around 2:30pm on June 13, and if that messes you up, I can always make alternate arrangements. (I have no idea how long it'd take, but I'd expect to go home afterwards.)

Is this the same house all those poker events and DSR 1 were at or does Tyler live somewhere else now?

I'm nt going to be able to participate due to having to leave for work Saturday evening, but is it still okay to come visit for a little while and say hi?

May. 12th, 2008 11:55 pm (UTC)

Prolly won't be able to. I already have a day scheduled off to go to the arcade get-together down in Medford next month. >.< It'll be great to see you and everyone though. :D I'll show up on both days. Also... directions? Are they posted somewhere? I have no clue how to get to the tourney.
