King of '94 II, Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, Las Vegas, Downtown Grand Casino


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys!

First, the topic heading is not a typo. We were asked by the casino to change the date as there is a big event happening in Las Vegas during the weekend of the 23rd. The result of this means that hotel rooms will see a discount of 50% to 60% for us on Sept.29 and Sept.30th. This discount was significant enough for us to agree to make the change and save you guys money. We certainly apologize for any one that this may impact negatively.

The tournament will take place at the Downtown Grand.

I've locked the other threads about this tournament that had the old date, so this thread can be used going forward.

Mikey and I are extremely excited for this. We really think this event is going to be something special to be a part of.

I know when I go to these, I don't have a chance to win it all, and I'm okay with that. It's the thrill of playing against many others, meeting you guys all again and just hanging out for a weekend playing my favourite game.

This exactly!

Guys who are worried that they can't play their best on a gamepad... WHO CARES!

The real reason to go is to have fun and meet all these guys you've known online for a decade as just a screenname. 

Do it for the memories, not your ranking.

ARGH!

 

This date will be MUCH harder for me to make.  I will try to work on things on my end to see if I can get it worked out.

 

23rd I was in.  30th, I am in limbo.

This is not acceptable.

You must be there!

This is awesome, well done; full marks for Sin City!

Also of note, the Vegas Golden Knights will probably be playing their exhibition schedule at the TMobile Arena during this timeframe, maybe something to think about for a group outing...

does this mean you're coming bud?

What's the entrance fee? $300!?

That was potentially the hotel price per night for the weekend of the 23rd (269+tax, resort fee..).

King of 94 Vegas and Sir Lance Gallant!
I mean Gerard Gallant!

Vegas's Coach was a player in NHL 94.

Gotta be Karma and some way to work out getting him/them involved.

Ola buds,

Mikey has been focussing hard on his documentary to get it done.

I'm coordinating registration and we looking to get it up as soon as we can. I think we are a few days aways yet. I was hoping by monday but we will see. I've been getting some help from quite a few buds, smoz, chaos, raph and evan in helping get things set up.

The price to play will be $94 to include 4 guaranteed games (or $149 to play on both consoles)....with ~60% of players getting 6+ games. And you'll get to watch the premiere of the NHL'94 documentary "pixelated heroes".

Stay Tuned!
