Fargo, ND - 11/15/14 - Tecmo Ryder Cup

Recommended Posts

Not sure yet - my car just broke down 3 days ago, it's impossible to shift, so I was thinking of taking a flight. I figured your vehicle was all taken up.

For Friday night if you are really wanting to get by on the cheap, accommodations can be made available in Davenport. However, I would strongly suggest getting a hotel room in Fargo for Friday night. Davenport has little to offer the Tecmo tourist other than a post office and a bar. Fargo is a much more attractive option and the Ryder Cup hosts would be willing to paint the town red in anticipation of the events to come.


 


As for the night of the event (Saturday), a hotel room is not necessary and is advised against. I have 3 futon mattresses, 3 couches, 1 recliner, 2 blow up beds, 2 regular beds, 1 pull out couch, 1 RV with 3 beds and an amalgamation of sleeping bags and cots. You should bring blankets and pillows as necessary because I will not have enough, but there is more than enough room for everybody to sleep.

Best case scenario for general circumstances and travel:


  • People stay in Fargo Friday Night
  • People either drive their cars out to Davenport Saturday Morning -or- people leave their car in Fargo and get picked up by me in a 15-passenger van on the way out to Davenport
  • We all travel together to and from the event locations in the van(s)
  • We play the final games in Davenport and party hard
  • Everyone stays in Davenport on Saturday
  • People either drive their cars back to their respective states -or- I drive them back to their cars in Fargo via 15-passenger van

Coconuts -- if you do fly and need some help with lodging or travel, just shoot me a text/email/PM

Will do, I'm thinking flying may be the best option, waiting on the estimate for my car for the final word. I'll let you know by Saturday.

Frolf's recommendations are exactly right. It really depends on what you want to do Friday, I guess, but I would strongly recommend staying in Fargo Friday night for the reasons previously stated. Davenport is about a twenty-minute drive in the insane North Dakota traffic, so making out there the next day on time will not be an issue.


 


If the Lodgefather shows up and fills out Team Greater Wisconsin/World, then we'd be locked and loaded with four teams.  Coconuts, I echo Frolf's invitation and can assist with lodging, airport pickup, etc.

Maybe I'll try playing naked. Wait...I don't want to put you all through that. On a lighter note Butt and I may find a dead hooker under one of our hotel room beds. After all we are only paying $60 a night.

Even with the Lodgefather, I still think we're one short:


 


ND: the mount rushmore of Tecmo players


Madison: Chet, Josh, Garbagetsbplayer, Rikster


MN: Sconnie, Ed, Bailey, Butt Douglas


World: Luke, Coconuts, Lodgefather, ?


 


Did I miss someone on my head count?

I wish i could come, but I'm a huge pansy.  I promise next year...no matter what.

 

Typical Nebraska hand wringing. Luke, You, Tick, and Knobbe would've been a great team up there. I guess some things are more important in Nebraska, like watching Bo Pelini lose to the Badgers again:

A few weeks back, we had planned for 6 or 7 guys from Madison/Milwaukee, so the plan was 2 cars. Now that the Milwaukee guys have dropped out, and the COD is doubtful, we've got 4 going in one medium-sized car. If the Child of Destiny chooses to fulfill his destiny as Tecmo Ryder Cup antihero, the car would be full up. If not, we could squeeze you in if you could get down to Madison, or meet us near Eau Claire off of 29/94. I can let you know on the COD by tomorrow if you want to hold off buying the flight.

OMG. This would be a godsend. I just got wind that my car will take more money than I can afford right now - so I'm about " Do I fix my car or go to Fargo?" Although it would suck if the COD missed his first Ryder Cup just to give me a spot in the vehicle.

Little Ducks, here is a copy of my speech that I gave to Team MN before the last Cup. Just replace Alabama with Minnesota, Go Bama with Rah Rah Rah, and Roll Tide with Ski-U-Mah 


 


(I think Hackman does it justice)

Update on the C.O.D: he's very doubtful for this weekend. As in, we're basically his fall-back date for prom. Somewhere along the way, the man lost his path in the great Tecmo wilderness. For now, he roams alone. Perhaps one day he will join us again.

I don't believe so.  We can certainly give a recommendation, based on what you want.  What's most important to the group?


 


(1) Cost? Without posting up in a total dive.


(2) Proximity to I-94?


(3) Proximity to Friday night fun.? This would likely be downtown, if you're looking to go out.  Would need a cab from almost anywhere, unless you stayed downtown, so this may not be a great factor to consider.

(1) I go with cost unless you can get us a deal at the dorms at Moo U

(2) Not a problem, most of us have GPS

(3) If you got to cab everywhere then this is negligible.

I think a really great hotel that is downtown and even with decent rates ($90 for 2 queens) is the Howard Johnson (hojo.com). Walking distance to all the downtown bars and not too far for the driver to go and pick people up in the morning. 


 


Candlewood Suites is right by the airport and has very nice $95 rooms available. It is about a $10 cab ride downtown (5-10 minutes).


 


The Red River Lodge and Suites is about $70, easy to get to off of I-94 and is a $10-15 cab ride downtown (10-15 minutes). There are a couple bars close by as well. Used to be a Red Roof Inn, a staple of any North Dakota traveling Tecmoer. Probably not as nice as the others, but average. Closest for the shuttle van in the morning as well.

I forgot all about the Hojo.  I have no idea what the rooms are like there, but it has to be cheap, and you're really close to good drinking spots.  Plus, it is a good pickup spot.  I'd second that recommendation.  Radisson is downtown too, but I'd save the cash if it were me.

      Just looking to keep the local embers glowing. Let me know if you have any questions...
       
      Monona Tecmo is looking to kick things off Saturday, May 4th at 11:30 am at Village Lanes in Monona, WI. We are all greatly missing Tecmo Madison, so let's huddle up and play some games!

      Our first event, Tag Team Tecmo, will be a very casual gathering. We hope to attract noobs, seasoned vets, and maybe even bring a an old legend or two out of retirement.

      Tag Team Tecmo will pair players together on game day. No partner required! We want to team new players with vets, so the new players have a chance to learn something AND literally everyone has a chance at winning. Once teams have been assigned, sit down for a practice game with your partner before we start competitive play. In the event that an odd number of players are signed up, PunkyQB will leap over the top rope and get in the ring.

      Before diving in much deeper, we are stressing the casual nature of this event. We literally have no idea how much interest this may generate, so don't be surprised if the details change a little bit on game day.

      FORMAT
      ------------
      Tag Team Tecmo. Players will be assigned two man teams. Each player must play half of the game. You can do this one of two ways: 1) One player plays offense and the other plays defense. 2) Play by quarters. Each player must play two quarters. Teams can split that however they like. If a game goes into Overtime, and the team selected quarters, either player can play the first Overtime, but the other player must play the second. This would continue to alternate until the game is won.

      We'll jerk the curtain with an opening round of group play. The size of groups and number of group play games will depend on turnout.

      At the conclusion of group play, teams will be seeded for bracket play. If the number of entrants is small enough, bracket play will be double elimination. If we have too many players for double elimination, PunkyQB, will announce this prior to group play beginning. Bracket play will continue until one team takes the strap.


      RULES
      ----------
      We will use the standard tournament rules that are used for the National Championships at Tundra Bowl. http://www.tundrabowl.com/official-rules.html
      The team that is player 1, will have to declare their roles first - quarters or offense/defense. Player 2 will declare their roles thereafter.


      COST
      -------
      Ten dollars per player. This ten dollars can be paid in cash on the day of the event, or the money can be sent via PayPal using the Friends and Family option to [email protected] Please include a note with your name/tag.

      PAYOUT
      ------------

      One hundred percent of the entry fee will be paid out. Payout amount(s) will be based on turnout. If there is enough turnout we will payout beyond the champion.

      SIGNUP
      -----------
      Go ahead and click attending if you're game, but please complete this signup form: http://tinyurl.com/MTTagTeamSignUp

      View File This is a remastered edition of Tecmo NBA Basketball 2018 for NES emulators that I released over a year ago.  To go along with updated team logos, one of the huge changes is the update to team simdata.  What this means is that the Warriors will play like Warriors, the Knicks will play like a dumpster fire, the Bulls don't play with the ghost of Michael Jordan twenty-five years later, etc.
       
      Enjoy!
