RTF Tour of Brisbane and Mini-Comp
« on: June 23, 2007, 08:53:57 PM »
Over the next couple of months, Team Ranking Task-Force will be making regular Saturday trips out to arcades around Brisbane. This will be a fun social event for the team, as well as a great opportunity to meet some new people in different areas of the city.

We will also conduct a friendly mini-comp on each day with local players, to demonstrate what RTF does as a team, and to help promote friendly competitive play. The competition will be a simple head-to-head elimination format using machine scoring, and we may also try some other challenges to keep things interesting.

Our first two stops on the tour will be:

June 30th - Funhouse Indooroopilly
July 14th - Replay Chermside
July 21th - Funhouse Sunnybank
August 4th - ??? (Vote now)

More dates will be announced in the weeks to come. We want to encourage any locals or regulars at these arcades to come down on the day, so if you have friends who might be interested, please let them know.

We hope to get around to visiting all of the DDR machines in Brisbane, and if there's a machine in your local area you think we should visit, please leave a comment below and we'll add it to the schedule. Locations already planned:

-Funhouse Sunnybank
-Replay Browns Plains
-Morayfield
-Mt Gravatt

Are tag-alongs ok?

You guys have been a regular part of our trips before, so I see no reason why you can't come along.

I should say, though, that this is an effort to meet new players, so we'd prefer to keep the number of non-locals to a minimum. We plan to get to every arcade in town, hopefully on an ongoing basis, so if people want us to stop in their area, all they have to do is post on the boards and tell us where to go :D

If it's really not going to be a pain for anyone, I'd like to come, it'd be a great way to learn my way around I think... I'm only little, I promise not to take up too much space =)

General schedule of events:

12 midday - arrive at location
1pm - grab some lunch
2pm - Mini-comp

Will probably be ready to call it a day around 4pm, when we'll head back to the city. People are welcome to hang around or leave early if they wish.

This sort of schedule should be easy enough to maintain at any of the planned locations, and gives us time to play, relax and socialise.

The mini-comp is completely scaleable, so the size will be based on how many locals are interested in taking part. Ideally we would run an equal number of RTF members vs local players. As this will be a single-elimination head-to-head matchup comp, we should churn through it pretty quickly, and hopefully it won't be too boring.

What we'll be doing for song selection hasn't really been decided yet. This is just a fun event, and largely we're making it up as we go along ;D

If the pads are really that poor than I guess we can look at ways of switching up the format a little. It's just for fun anyway.

And I guess you're more a Chermside local, really, so Indro wouldn't really have been your space. But we'll see you guys on the 7th for sure.

Suggesting Morayfield. It has space around the machine for one thing. I understand that it's out of the way (zone 8), and am willing to find out about public transport. Don't think it's even technically in Brisbane... but hey, tis up to you guys.

With the Pokémon Connect event on next weekend, we'll be postponing the scheduled Chermside trip.

This will now be pushed back to Sat 14. We'll have a sign up to make sure people will actually attend this one.
