Hi everyone, I hope everyone's having a great summer, and I hope everyone is as excited as I am for another DC LAN! It's been ages since the last one happened, and hopefully this isn't too short of a notice for some of you!
With everyone off doing their own things now, and my pockets not being as deep as someone that isn't working full time and not a student, I can't guarantee a prize pool like the last one, but really, it's about hanging out with each other, having fun and eating some KBBQ anyways, right!?
Rob mentioned on twitter that it might be tough to get enough people to donate into a prize pool, so we can all play some archon mode games or something (I have 2 accts, and I'm sure at least some other people have extra beta accts they can spare for the day ). If we have enough people to run a tournament, then we will totally make one!
When: Saturday August 8th, 2015. 3PM - 10PM (Registration starts at 3, and we will start around 4PM so we can get to KBBQ around 10)
Where: Monster PC: 7031 Little River Turnpike #13b, Annandale, VA 22003
$20: Covers you for 12 hours at the LAN center, and will allow you to be in whatever we end up running! *NOTE: If you already have computer time, then you don't need to pay anything, you pretty much just need to pay for your time for the event*
$265: $65 from Richard and $100 from KJ Freeedom! Since the LAN center costs are for computer time, the prize pool will be from only donations.
We had a last minute donation by Vulak/Rob of $100 as well, thank you so much!
If anyone else would like to donate to the prize pool, feel free to post here! It would be awesome if we could get 16 players to show up and have a full bracket!
$50: Raynor party prize pool: 6 Players:
$5: Storm Dragon
$215: Main SC2 Tournament
If there are enough people, we will have a Bo3 double elimination bracket, Bo5 winners semifinals and finals. Bo7 grand finals with winner of the winners bracket starting game up 1-0.
If there are not a lot of people, we will have a bunch of money matches (SC,BW,WoL,HotS,LotV Bo5 matches!?) or something until like 3-4PM, since it looks like some people aren't available til later but will show up for dinner. We will have a few different events throughout the day to make sure we aren't out until dinner time.

Please be sure to post here if you plan on going, so we have an idea as to how many people will be showing up. Hope to see you all there! Feel free to ask me any questions in this thread or by PM.
