Picked up a sealed Ed Belfour prize for early giveaway!  Not sure what's up with the pink glove and blocker, perhaps time, or a bad run.(Maybe that makes it rare?)

 

Anyway, get signed up today!  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdXfwj_wK9Zzjr2nlfIAT5F0U0dexpmqo3xU3gdAsIWeVFOLQ/viewform?fbclid=IwAR03RUPBUbySFMouvm_9Tdo8qmiC-T2m9lW-7oRVkjPCSmIBI9tqykcpwWA

Thanks to all who took advantage of the early bird signup!  As it stands January 1st, we have 17 players already signed up/paid, which is just under half of our total turnout last time.  The prize drawings for early signup will be conducted and distributed the day of the tournament.

In the coming days and weeks, we will be aggressive on social media, trying to get the word out.  Those that help us in our cause will have additional opportunities to win prizes.  Please stay tuned on our social media platforms.  Descriptions of what to do with a specific post will be on said post.  Things like tagging friends in posts, sharing the post, commenting, and ultimately, if a tagged person signs up will all increase your chances of winning said prize.  This will be spelled out clearly, and the giveaways will be done on Facebook live.

If you haven't yet, please like us on Facebook, and mark yourself going or interested on our event page for "Barry Melrose Place"

Our friends at Press Start Games have donated gift cards to be given away during NHL94 tournament.

Their store is amazing, and they also gave us very low priced Genesis hardware to add to our capacity.

No photo description available.

I've been told our friend @MikeGartner22 will be joining us and has booked his flight already.  I'm sure his signup will come later this week officially.  It's always great when we add a 1st time player from our long established community!

I must have neglected to post this here, but we did lock down another sponsor.  If you are planning on playing Tecmo with us Friday night, free pizza will be provided courtesy of Titletown Financial Services LLC.  Mike and Mike(can't make this up) from TFS will be playing Tecmo with us, and it's possible one of the Mikes will be with us for NHL94 as well.

You are encouraged to ask them questions about finance, to distract them during your games with them, which should ultimately get you a win.  :)

Thanks Mike and Mike!

This weekend on the eve of the Tundra Bowl, I was able to meet up to play some Gens games with Mort, Green Majik, and DPS.  No joke, all 3 of these guys have stepped up their game tremendously.  Literally a month ago I had a measurable advantage against these guys.  They are grinding weekly to get better.  I look forward to their continued progression, and overall tournament performance come tournament weekend!

They had some technical difficulties so things started late.  It was just one of those days.  :)  That being said here's the clip from the interview I did.

I wanted to put to bed any rumors regarding AJ not being at the tournament. As of this morning he could not locate a suitable flight that worked alongside his work schedule. We have found a solution that will get him into Green Bay the day of the tournament, albeit a bit late. We will work with him within reason to avoid any forfeitures of games.
