    I want to see what kind of interest I can drum up for a small TFH-local tourney in the central NJ area, a bit south of New Brunswick/Rutgers.

    I have enough space to host a max of about 10 people (including me), no more than that, and it would be a bi-weekly affair for Sunday afternoon/early evening. I can also plan for Monday/Tuesday evenings if people would prefer, but I figure Sunday might work better. Fridays and Saturdays are no go for me.

    We would ideally have a minimum of two setups (one for tourney and one for friendlies), but I only have the one on my PC right now. I'd be asking for support just to get the extra one, and then we could make things even smoother with any additional setups from there. I don't know if I have enough space/hardware on hand to actually stream the locals, but perhaps over time we could figure that out (or find a better space to work with). We'd still at least be locally recording the matches, at any rate.

    Again, right now I'm just gauging interest and assessing feasibility. I would like for this to happen to help bolster the NE-coast offline community, but it's also possible that somewhere else already has what I want nearby on one of the same available days. If we do get this going, it should go without saying but I'ma say it anyways: I expect everyone to be courteous and shit. I would be running this from a decently-sized apartment in a doors-leading-to-streetside complex, and although the majority of it would take place in a furnished basement area, there's still sound leakage here and there so excessive yelling/freak-outs won't be tolerated (match hype is okay so long as it doesn't go overboard). I'll have no hesitation kicking anyone out that causes problems.

    There's technically limited parking, but the various open parking spots at the clubhouse/leasing office should be enough for only 9 additional cars (assuming no carpools).


    Obviously, there are some limitations here, but it's something I'm willing to go with if peeps wanna' try it out. Please let me know if you're interested, either in this topic or with a PM in the Fightin' FĹ“natics Discord.

    Eh, doesn't seem to matter much yet. I'll definitely give this post at least a few weeks, but so far it's lookin' like crickets in here.

    Currently changing gears here and considering the Salty Joystiq in Southern NJ instead as our intended venue. I just made a post in the FF server about it and am hoping for maybe a few more bites on the line.
