  1. What a great time at KumiteV! Definitely our best tournament to date, with a beautiful spot overlooking downtown Detroit on the 3rd floor of Detroit Beer CO Two weeks prior to the tournament we sat at just 13 players, which was very discouraging to say the least with all we had done in preparation of the date. With walk ups, and further promotion we ended up with 31 players, each with at the very minimum, 5 games played, and sending many of them away with some great raffle prizes to boot! Matt O'Toole walked away with his 1st Kumite Cup title, after two previous runner-up finishes, and our first Michigan champion - which is just crazy to think about! Matt Diaz was our runner-up, with Rico and myself taking home 3rd and 4th place honors. Mark Nutter ousted Ryan McKay in the consolation tourney final on a JJ at the buzzer! Madison Tecmo Director, Dave Murray helped out the Kumite shipping over 3 Hyperkin RetroN 1 systems. They were so helpful in the tournament cause, as they nearly got us to 1/2 NES stations to Kumite participants, which would have allowed us to breeze through the tournament. We didn't quite get to the half way point, but the systems worked out awesome, as they seem to be much more reliable compared to some of the old Nintendo's out there. Louis B. and Nick C. took home RetroN systems as raffle prizes. So to Dave, thank you so much for that man! Lastly, a tremendous thank you to the great people at Detroit Beer Co for making us feel right at home the whole day. It can be a long day, and everyone there was just fantastic throughout, and for that we are so grateful, and hope to be back again next year! A big personal thank you to Matthew O'Toole, Chas Claus, and Jason Ley for your contributions to the tournament cause. We couldn't have made the day the success it was without you guys! See you guys in Madison, and hopefully next year at Kumite VI!

  8. Do you recall a price on that parking structure @toolie? Was it $10 for the day did we think? The Greektown parking structure is free, and is about 8 blocks away. The Detroit People Mover (public trans) has a Greektown stop, in the casino, for I believe $.75. That could definitely be a way to go for many. If bringing equipment however, you'll certainly want to swing by the venue, and at least drop it off. I believe there are meters right outside the venue, and other lots as well.
  9. We are just about a month away from Detroit's Tecmo Kumite V, on Saturday, March 4, 2017! If you have yet to sign up for the tournament, what in the heck are you waiting for?! The fifth rendition of the Tecmo Kumite will be the biggest and best yet! We are anticipating at least 40 participants for Kumite V, which will pay out at least 5 spots, including over $500 for 1st place - in addition to ample raffle, and consolation prizes! We have an amazing space, on the 3rd floor of the beautiful Detroit Beer Co, 1529 Broadway, in Downtown Detroit. For the first time, we'll be throwing an official Friday night pre-party, where we'll have some beers, rock out tons of Tecmo, and get everyone pre-registered for the tournament on Saturday. We have stepped up our raffle game in a big way for 2017! We will be raffling off the following items: an autographed Barry Sanders Detroit Lions mini helmet; an autographed Warren Moon, Haywood Jeffries, Curtis Duncan, Ernest Givens, AND Lorenzo White, Houston Oilers mini helmet; a paid entry to the SOLD OUT Tecmo Madison XIII on April 8; a TSB 25th Anniversary Edition NES cartridge, courtesy of Tecmopsycho; TSB hoodies courtesy of tecmobowlers.com; Mitchell and Ness retro snapback hats. For each paid entry, you will receive 5 complimentary raffle tickets. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $2 a piece. We'll also be hosting a Tecmo Kumite pre-party get together a couple of weeks prior to the tournament where we will be you signed up for Kumite V, raffle off a few items, and of course rock out some Tecmo! We are targeting Thursday night, February 23 for this event. Both THU 2/23 and FRI 3/3 pre-party venues TBD. If you are hesitant to PayPal your entry for whatever reason, this night will be for you, to get you signed up at the discounted rate, and you can get valuable Tecmo reps in against good competition. Stay tuned for this get-together announcement over the coming days. HOTELS AND PARKING There are many nice hotels options within a short distance from the venue, but they can be a bit pricy in upwards of $150 a night. Those places include the Greektown Casino Hotel, Atheneum Suite Hotel, Hilton Garden Inn, Double Tree, Westin Book Cadillac, Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, among many. If you want to stay somewhere nicer, there are options in the burbs, that are quite affordable, but about a 25 minute drive north. Two stand out as values, and are within a mile or two of the venue: Holiday Inn Express is $117 a night, and the Crown Plaza $135 a night. Source: hotels.com. Below URL shows distance from Detroit Opera House, which is right across the street from Detroit Beer Co. The Fridaynight pre-party will be held, ideally at the same venue, but at worst, in the same relative vicinity of the tournament venue Saturday. https://www.hotels.com/search.do?resolved-location=NEIGHBORHOOD%3A1664822%3AUNKNOWN%3AUNKNOWN&destination-id=1664822&q-destination=Downtown%20Detroit,%20Michigan,%20United%20States%20of%20America&q-check-in=2017-03-03&q-check-out=2017-03-05&q-rooms=1&q-room-0-adults=2&q-room-0-children=0&sort-order=DISTANCE_FROM_LANDMARK&sort-lid=1657618 The Detroit Opera House is right across the street from Detroit Beer Co. They have a parking structure at the corner of John R. and Broadway. I believe it is $10 for the day to park there. The Greektown parking structure is free, and is about 8 blocks away.

  10. I think OToole, Moskwa, myself, and others in the Tecmo Yukon will be staying at the Hampton Inn too. It is a 5 min walk to the venue according to google maps, where as Clarion Suites is outside of downtown, from what I could tell.
  11. Group C, Losers Bracket Tecmo Ninja wins toss and calls NO/ATL. ODell takes ATL. Such a hard fought game, and close throughout. ATL loses a fumble, and gets safetied to close out the half, in addition to some JJ magic to Heyward, and Fenerty (3), the Saints are able to maintain a late lead, hitting the Morten Andersen FG with just under 2:00 to play to give the Saints a 15-14 lead. Falcons are able to get a couple of big plays to their big play makers, Rozier and Rison. ATL bangs through the game winner with just seconds to play, 17-15. Key plays of the game, in addition to what has already been mentioned were two crucial Deion INTs at the goalline. Only thing that kept the Falcons in this one. GG Chris, and looking forward to seeing you soon brother! 17 15

  15. Most of the city is safe, just like any other city. I will possibly post some hotel info in the coming days, but all of the casinos would be decent options, but expensive. Greektown Casino is the closest, followed by MGM, and Motor City Casinos - all of which are within about a mile of the venue.
