Thanks buds.

Same.

"

www.retrothon.com took too long to respond."

Worked for me. Maybe something was wrong with the server last night.

The registration is open!

Side note: a response I received from some random after sending out an email.

"This serious tourney or is it bullshit

Me and my buddy think at least were solid 94 players sega"

Tell them the defending champ is from California. I'm sure they can run with the answer from there.

We used CRTs under 20" at the LI tourney. Actually most were under 15". They were perfect. Easy to carry, and no one complained about the size being too small. The big ones are too heavy. Also, we got most of them on Craigslist

I think Halifax is taking a "go big or go home!" approach :D

I've got a 20", weighs 38 lbs, I think that's about the max reasonable size to be carrying around.

Those TVs with the actual flat screens weight a TON (the one in the foreground, and I think I see one in the back, grey one?).

I just booked. Yeah, it was just about $560. Ouch.

Playing around in Google flights... These are lowest prices I'm seeing for Friday-Sunday trips, Ottawa->Saskatoon:

 1 week  out | Sep  9 | $863
 2 weeks out | Sep 16 | $758
 3 weeks out | Sep 23 | $536
 4 weeks out | Sep 30 | $478
 5 weeks out | Oct  7 | $478
 6 weeks out | Oct 14 | $478
 7 weeks out | Oct 21 | $460
 8 weeks out | Oct 28 | $460
 9 weeks out | Nov  4 | $525
10 weeks out | Nov 11 | $530
So if the pattern holds and is based on weeks-until-flight rather than current bookings, you may be able to save ~$70 by waiting 2-3 weeks.

Right now flying back on the Monday is a bit cheaper but obviously that's another day of accomodations and another day off work...

They haven't signed up yet but I know they will. I have lunch with the90jacket about once a month since he only works a block away from me. We spend 5 minutes dispensing pleasantries, then it's 94 talk for the next 55 minutes. We ask questions like "how can bobk be beaten?" and "Is it all over once annatar books his flight?"...things like that. After 5 beers of depression, we head back to work.

I have purchased my tickets. Watch out Canadian buds.

My ticket was 450 ish American. A bit more pricey than my ticket to Sweden in December if you can believe it.

Go take it Angryjay93! We only utilized 3 larger tvs at the Ko94WI tourney, rest were 14-20 " and worked out pretty well. When you factor you are sitting 3-4 feet away from the screen, the smaller size really isn't an issue.

That's almost $20 worth of TV's right there. :)

Looks like it's going to be a great event!

I get in Friday around 3pm. Flying out early Sunday morning. 7am...same as AJ though so we'll get to the airport somehow. Was the only way to keep the cost reasonable.

Don't make smozoma represent Ottawa all by himself bud!
