  1. I want to express my sincerest gratitude to everyone who came out this year. As some of you know, we lost our space 6 days before the tournament, a place we had been hosting the tournament for the last 5 years. Getting that e-mail Sunday night from our former venue simultaneously angered me and made me feel panicked. I nearly cancelled the tournament. But I remembered that the Tecmo must go on! I reached out to a few of the NY guys who have been very involved in the meetups--Ryan @hoigaard, Patrick, Scott, Matt @deadfaulkner--and they helped me sort through what to do. We were able to come together and book a space within the next 24 hours. And it ended up being one of our best tournaments yet. This experience made me reflect a bit on the Tecmo scene, what it has become, places I've gone to, people that I've met in the Northeast and across the country. And I feel very blessed to have shared many of the thrilling and exciting experiences I've had with all you guys. I've come to know many of you more than just from your Tecmo play. And I am seriously bummed that @arncoem won't be having the CT tourney this year, but I guess there's always next year. Anyway, I could go on and on with all this mushy stuff, but I'll stop here. I'll be posting my experience of my games and tourney day shortly. Thank you to all who came and made it a great day in Tecmo. In the meanwhile, here are some photos: https://www.facebook.com/NYTecmo/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1915919231964190
  2. To All Participants: Our location for this year's tournament has changed! If you have already signed up, you should have received an e-mail already. Here is the new location: Location: Raven's Head Public House, 3804 Broadway, Astoria, NY 11103 (Approx. 15 minutes from Midtown Manhattan, Uptown R train to Steinway Street in Queens) Website: http://www.ravensheadpublichouse.com/ This should not affect anyone's travel plans as the new venue is only 5 blocks away. We will have our own private room in "The Attic." I'll be getting groups out in the next couple of days! If you have not signed up, please do so! The field this year is currently just under 30. If you are traveling with someone, let me know who so I don't place you guys in the same group.
  3. @Maynard_G_Krebs This is an historic occasion! First ever tournament and I am proud that it's this one!
  4. Raffle prizes coming your way, including a signed football from Tecmo punting legend Sean Landeta! Also, some Tecmo swag courtesy of Tecmobowlers.com:
  5. This list is for some of the top BBQ spots, a few of which I have been to: http://ny.eater.com/maps/new-york-city-best-barbecue-brooklyn-queens Though I must question why BBQ when most of us Northerners are in awe of any BBQ south of the Mason-Dixon line. Streaming is not only allowed, but encouraged!
  6. @Nameless Loser I got your signup! Let me know who you know that is traveling from your area. That way I can avoid putting you in the same group during pool play.
  7. Looking forward to the next one as always!
  8. So you just described being able to make it for the beginning of the tourney... am I missing something?
  9. Public transit is the only way to go when you visit. Heck, it's probably cheaper and more relaxing to rent a limo and have someone chauffeur you around than it is to rent a car. Especially for that amount of time. Besides, you'll be spending half your time in a bar playing Tecmo.
  10. Cool! Where will this database be housed? On tecmomadison.com? Also, on the spreadsheet, how do you determine who was the winner of the matchup? Should the scores for each player be in two separate columns?
  11. How long do you think you'll be in town? Also, do I have you on the mailing list?
  12. I assume you may be coming from DC since your location says there, but let me know if I'm wrong. I've taken a bus down to Union Station in DC quite a few times as well as Amtrak. Both are really good options and it's probably only 25 minutes by subway to the bar once you arrive in NYC. As for driving, it's not as bad as people think if you avoid Manhattan as much as possible. You could stay in one of the outer boroughs or conceivably outside the city. But traffic can be really bad at certain times of the day (as TecmoPsycho found out last year). Plenty of people drive in from PA, NJ, CT and Western NY. We haven't had any formal night-before gaming ritual, but some of the locals get together the week before the tournament to practice. I'd be open to firing up the game the night before if someone was willing to host.
  13. Rooting for the 98 Broncos again. I'm more excited for this than I am the NFL this season!
  14. Should I have the pizzas delivered to the bar this year?
  15. Hey George, I sent a list of my thoughts on the expo to Joel, should I forward them to you? Hope to see you in October!
