I'm actually scheduled to be on call for work the weekend of this tournament, but I may swap with a coworker so I can attend.

We'd love to have you Gerald.  We will do our best to make this a good tournament/format/payout/etc.

Believe it or not, the payout isnt a big deal to me. Yes its cool to win money but I'm more of a trophy type of guy. Plus its awesome to play some Tecmo with some cool ass people.

I'm all about the trophy as well. The cash most likely just goes towards the player's hotel and gas

We will have trophies to our top finishers.  The creativity committee of Iowa Tecmo 3 is working on that now.

I think participants (including myself) will be surprised on how many people will be attending this tournament.

We are shaking the trees here in Des Moines/Iowa and already seeing unknown talent show interest.

Was just about to sign up, but I got the ol Family Reunion that weekend.   Darn summer fills up quick in the midwest.

Only when you have a life.

Thats why we go a tecmo first philosophy. I wouldnt be opposed to you having your family reunion at our tournament? Look how close we tecmo bowlers grow from experiencing the game together?

So guys post if you think you'll be a maybe at this point.

 

This is right up against a family trip to Wisconsin Dells. Details aren't ironed out yet, so it's still a slight possibility. I'd really like to make it.

Good thing about central iowa... its is a mild drive from Minnesota and central/west Wisconsin.

Our goal is to keep this tournament ON SCHEDULE.  Tough to do but we will bring in as many TV/Consoles as we need to ensure first rounds run fast.  We will have non-player volunteers that will focus only on tournament flow, that might help too.

We'd prefer the tournament to be over by 7pm, Allowing participants to drive home vs stay over.

      Registration is now open for Tomczak Bowl IX! Sign up now and reserve your spot.
       
      http://bit.ly/tomczak9
       
      The tournament is planned for Saturday December 10th in Dubuque, IA at Courtside Sports Bar.
       
      This is a double elimination tournament featuring some top players from all over the midwest.
       
      $20 to participate payable on game day.
       
      Cash prizes for the top finishers.
       
      Custom-made trophies, and a special champion jacket to the winner like the one pictured below being given to Tomczak 7 champ Tony Orenga.

       
      The winner of Tomczak Bowl will get free automatic entry for Tundra Bowl in Green Bay, WI. Tundra Bowl is an official qualifier tournament for Tecmo Madison.
       
      Worried about being "2 and done"? Don't fret! All players that lose their first two games and are eliminated are automatically entered into the loser's mini-tourney and will compete for the coveted Peter Tom Willis Cup. So even if you're not a Tecmo pro you could still be a champ.
       
      If you have equipment you could bring (NES systems, controllers, copies of TSB, working tube TVs) we would love your help. Without this support from the Tecmo community, tourneys like this wouldn't be possible.
       
      Looking for places to stay in Dubuque? There is a Holiday Inn Express conveniently located just across the street from Courtside. Or stay down at the Port of Dubuque near the indoor waterpark and Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium and bring the family.

      If you're in the area and you're looking to play some Tecmo Super Bowl before the actual Super Bowl, here is the 411:
      Waterloo, Iowa - Not only a Tecmo Super Bowl tournament, Spicolies will also be hosting a Chili cook off as in this bar known for it's musical acts
      Greensboro, NC - This tourney will be held at the Lost Arcade Video store and you won't just be playing for pride....you'll be playing for store credit.
      Harlon, Iowa - Just found out there is another second annual Iowa tourney the day before the Super Bowl...whaaaaattt?

      As always, you can find out about all the tournaments we here about by visiting our Tourney section up top (or link here)
