Phone: 631-565-7005

Travel:

TRAIN:

It is a good halfway point between western and eastern long island. It is also very close to the Amityville Train station, which is on the Babylon Line of the Long Island Rail Road.

DRIVING:

The venue is located on Merrick Road, right at the county line between Nassau and Suffolk.

The venue is also less than a mile west of the southern end of Rte 110/Broadway (rte 110 is accessible from Northern State Parkway, Long Island Expressway, or Southern State Parkway).

The venue is located in south shore long island very close to the Sunrise Mall.

When
Saturday April 16, 2011

The tournament is planned to start at 5PM following an in shop signing with old school wrestling star Raven (which runs 1PM-4PM).

Come early to check out the shop, meet Raven, and of course, register for the event. Casuals will run from tear down of the signing event until the tournament begins, and afterward.

What Games

Marvel vs Capcom 3
Super Street Fighter IV
More if the demand/interest is high enough.

The Marvel and SSFIV will be run on xbox 360. I'm anticipating that the costumes will not be unlocked. Jill and Shuma will be available and tourn legal. Marvel will run on the latest software patches.

Other Details
The tournament will be Bring Your Own Controller or use house controllers. Borrow from/lend out controllers/sticks at your own risk. I should not have to be saying this but, sigh, PLEASE do not take another person's property without their permission. AS a safety precaution, please keep a close eye on your sticks/property, even though there ARE CAMERAS on the premises.

There is a Five Guys and a very good pizza place adjacent to the shop. There are even more (cheap and quality) food places within walking distance. (I'd say check out Blue T's Pizza, or All-American Burgers, which is a little farther west, but worth the quick trip).

The last tournament was a lot of fun. I was very impressed with the level of play, and look forward to the fierce competition that Long Islanders have to offer.

If you are new to the scene, or are curious, please do not hesitate to stop by and check things out, and even play some casuals. The players are very helpful and friendly.

Whichever way, come down, have a good time, and show us what you got!
