Here's another flyer design that people can print and easily share with friends/family.

So this is a Mega Man hockey tournament now?

I'm sure if Capcom put their heads behind a hockey game, it would come out smelling like roses.

We needed something that didn't have Modano's likeness on it for mass marketing purposes, and while you can certainly say these characters were inspired by Mega Man, the powers that be in the legal department didn't see any issue with this depiction.

Why can’t you use Modano? Mega man makes this poster confusing as to what the tournament is for

edit: maybe instead use a sprite of modano from the game?

Put coach Mac in some Northstar threads. He would provide the desired effect.

At my own risk, I can use the old marketing material featuring Modano,  which I've done and will continue to do.  However, the venue is part of a national chain and won't use Modano's likeness on their own marketing efforts.  We actually used a sprite of Modano's face on top of his body.  Their lawyers shot it down.  Again, the majority of the marketing coming from us has the traditional Modano likeness in place.  Their people made this, and frankly, if you see NHL94 on the flyer, either you're all about it or not.  I don't think the 8bit characters would turn me off, especially for a crowd who hasn't seen much in the way of NHL94 tournaments locally.

We here at Edge Of '94 Midwest would like to congratulate Michael Robert Stanton and Raamayan Ananda on their victories in Vancouver this weekend, as well as Ryan Christian Ventura for keeping the #NHL94 dream alive! Both Robert and Raamayan have earned themselves free entry into Modano Mo Problems NHL94 Tournament February 29th in Minneaoplis, should they decide to claim it! Congrats again to these buds!

I'm very please to announce, that we were able to convince The Moxy to extend their hotel special rate deal all the way up to the 28th!

I'm just curious how many plan to join us Friday for some 2v2 and other games.  Might be fun doing a Pros + Joes 2v2 tournament if we can get at least 8 players Frdiay night.

You'll have plenty of time to attend the Gophers game if you want to play in just the Gens tournament bud.

We're excited to announce at Edge Of '94 Midwest that we've partnered with PopsicArt Shop for a special promotion leading up to our Feb 29th "Modano Mo Problems" NHL94 tournament! We approached them about adding #NHL94 based artwork, and they listened! They even righted a historical wrong by adding a Minnesota North Stars option! Don't worry, if you're a Dallas Stars fan that option is still available! If you use this special listing, you'll enjoy $5 off your purchase, and FREE shipping! Use Discount code NHL94 at checkout! This Discount code expires Feb 29th, so get yours today! https://tinyurl.com/popsicartnhl942020

 

Not the most flattering of pictures here, but I got a North Stars one.  It had just come in from the cold.

So it's looking like I'll be making the drive from SK, Canada to Minot, then to Minny. If anyone's on the way and wants to split fuel costs, let me know. Still undetermined whether I'm going with kids or without. Long story short, I had a buddy from USA visit me in Canada and then get deported, so I still have a bunch of his s**t in my closet, so he's taking a flight to Minot and I'm picking him up to help with the drive. Then he can fly his s**t back home with him to Cali haha. But I have a larger vehicle if someone wants a ride. Cheers!

Announcing some additional prizes :

Image result for gamerztek hd snes

 

The Gamerztek 16 Bit HD is our official SNES clone console, which can play on standard definition via composite on your CRT, or on your HD display via HDMI.  The included controllers are fantastic, and they do support original style SNES controllers.  This is a $50 value, and at minimum 2 of them will be given away to tournament participants! 

Don't worry, we're all  about that CRT, but it's nice to have something like this that easily hooks up to your living room TV, or your game room CRT.

These massive bins are filled with consoles carts, and controllers, power and AV hookups.  I spent most of the weekend going through the majority of gear we'll be bringing to Minneapolis.  We're confident when we say there won't be any system bandwidth issues holding the tournament up.

This was sent to me last night, and I haven't checked it out yet.  Thanks to @clockwise for putting it together.  Apparently in 2v2 player portraits will lock the system so it's not focused around that.  However, the names should be right based on the teams given.

If you have a flash cartridge for Genesis go ahead and load this bad boy on it.
