Well, it sure has been a while since the UMBC Wednesday Weeklies...

It's time to say "Farewell" to Soul Calibur 4.

And what better way than to hold a final farewell tournament?

Those of you that were around back in the earliest days of MD SC4 know what the events myself and Hudathan ran were all about: Fun, hype, madness, and trolling. UMBC Wednesday Weeklies may be no more, but we're bringing the spirit of those weeklies back on the 21st. This will be the final Sc4 tournament of the DMV area, so it's time to stop hibernating. Come out to say farewell, and hello-- Hello to other DMV players you might not have met yet. They may be your training buddies when SC5 drops. So yes, this is both a farewell and a Meet and Greet. I, for one, know that I know NONE of the newer SC4 players, so I'm looking forward to meeting and greeting.

Enough spiel. Details below.

Tell your friends about this, and bring them along if you can! There may be some bigger SC-related events and such happening in the DMV in the future, so come out and show that our numbers are still here.

Hey everyone, long time no speak. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it on Saturday, though I really would like to see everyone (Huda, SWB, Promethius, and others).

I started skydiving last year, and that (as well as snowboarding) are my current top hobbies, far above gaming. I am doing specialized water-landing training Saturday in Fredericksburg, so no chance of making it up to Baltimore in time . . .

Regarding future hangout opportunities, and SC5 play, here are some
EVENTS TO LOOK FORWARD TO:

I plan to be in the Baltimore / Glen Burnie area Fri - Sun, Jan 27 - 29. My hope is to have the game early, and basically play all weekend. If people want to play, hit me up: misato69@hotmail.com

Fri, Feb 4 - Mon, Feb 6: Buffalo gathering a la Cha Cha (I would like to put a car together to drive up, and save on fuel / toll costs) Again, if you are interested in joining, hit me up: misato69@hotmail.com

Sat, Feb 11 - Tournament at Dave & Busters in White Flint Mall, near Rockville / Bethesda, MD, run by Skisonic & Steve Harrison

Dan!

I've also been doing some snowboarding. So much fun. Strongly considered skydiving, but haven't gotten around to it. I'll contact you about skydiving details sometime soon :)

Good to see you're still around, man! I'll contact you about those event dates as well.

Hey man, good to see your still alive and kicking together events.

How did things go this past weekend? I didn't see a "tourney results" thread for it. Hopefully a good turnout and a bunch of old heads playing together?

Snowboarding (and skiing) is among the best things ever, for sure. Skydiving could be even better. Hard to say, different strokes for different folks, except me, as I love both.

My car (for a trip to Buffalo to see Brian/Cha-cha, Nick/Godspu, JayShadow, Creep, and others) seems to be filling up fast, so I need anyone interested in joining to contact me ASAP.

ttyl,
Dan

Didn't have enough for a tourney, but we had a solid number of good players to have a good, long session. I capped some vids, which will be uploaded sometime soon.

I'd love to ride up to Buffalo, but I didn't have enough time to request off of work :(
I'd down for sure if there's a second trip.

Jan 27th to 29th, I'm definitely down for sessions. I'll have the game before then, so I'll be itching to play other people as soon as they get their hands on it. I'll send you an e-mail for your address.

Feb 11th, I have a Tekken tourney I'm helping run, but after the tournament, I'll head down to White Flint. I'll probably miss the tourney, but I'll play casuals.

I'm actually thinking of going on a weekend trip up to White Tail for boarding with friends. Haven't been there since '09. It's always good times up there. I've decided I will definitely be skydiving this summer. 100%. Gonna be epic. I wanna try out all sorts of crazy shit. I hear you can try a flying trapeze program out either somewhere in DC or NY, don't remember. I'd like to do that too. We'll see!

I'll e-mail ya in a bit.
