[Mar 17, 2012] K.U.B. - 5 Dollar Footdives (Winter Park, FL)

GDX and Sore Thumbs Video Games present 5 Dollar Footdives!
We will cross the line, with the first ever Orlando X Tampa event. We suggest you pre-register on this document: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFEyZ1lYcVVzOFg0NElvV05qV0lLelE6MQ, because we need at least 8 entrants for each fighting game, otherwise we nix that bracket and move to the next one.

Sore Thumbs is providing 6 to 8 360’s with LCD TVs. If you want MK, SC5, and/or BlazBlue run on PS3, bring your system & disc. GDX is able to provide a full setup for XBOX 360 and Wii. We will need more Wii’s to run Brawl in a timely manner. Next Level Lan has some CRTs that aren’t being used, so bring everything you can.

Also if you have any spare PC microphones that would also help. The current streaming equipment only composite inputs, but GDX does have cables for both 360 and Wii to fit.

For those who do bring a full setup for any game, you will get entry into a drawing to where two different winners will get reimbursed their $5 door fee by GDX personally (which you can then use at a Subway down the street if you really want to)
