Guys we have a location locked down.

 

Tomczak Bowl X will be at The Venue at 285 Main Street, Dubuque, IA. It's a bar in the basement of an old building in downtown. It's a very cool place with a nice beer selection.  They don't serve food but you will be able to order food from nearby establishments. I would recommend the pizza from Shot Tower Inn.

 

The location is in walking distance of at least 2 hotels.

If there's one thing Tomczak Bowl has become known for it's our trophies. Case in point, look at the one for Tomczak Bowl IX.

I had no idea how we were gonna top that one, but talking to our trophy carpenter he has a pretty sweet idea for Tomczak X. If he can pull it off it'll be awesome I promise.

I am informally/officially verbally registering....I'll be there. Also, since it should just be common place by this point that all tournament participants bring as many things to tournaments that could help speed things along, I have 2 full setups (TV, Games, Consoles, Controllers) if you want me to bring them to add. Let me know. Worst case scenario, people who lose can play all the random NES games like they did at Iowa Tecmo.

Absolutely bring them. We can never have too much equipment.

We're up to 17 people registered. According to the Facebook event posted there are over 70 interested. Even if a fraction of that amount decides to come it's looking to be a decent sized field.

We've got 25 people officially register and that number will surely grow as we're just about a month away from Tomczak 10.  I've also got some sweet raffle prizes I hope to show you soon.

I'm interested in going.   What time does the tournament start and about what time would you expect it to end?     

 

Try to start setting up at 11am, start by noon, be done hopefully no later than 9. I think at our biggest (41 people) we managed to finish before 9.

Anyone know how to get a hold of Josh Holzy?  I tried calling Pat Beach but that didn't work.  I'm wondering if he is still considering a ride to this.

 

 

I believe he'll be away on vacation this weekend, so you're good.

Stephen and I are excited to be driving across from Chicago to play!

We got spare equipment prepared, a freshly modded Kevtris NES-101 top-loader, games, and controllers.

I have a projector if you folks need one as well.

 

Look forward to this Saturday of Tecmo Bowl, and Nintendo classics.

Looks like Friday night we'll have some social time at the bar. I plan to bring a NES down to hook up to their TV so we can get some games in. If you're gonna be in Dubuque tomorrow night I expect to be there around 7pm. I welcome anyone to come hang out and have a beer or two.

This was an awesome time guys.  Thanks for the fun and well-run tournament.  The Mort/Gats/Flo showdowns were great to watch. They were almost as good as the Peter Tom Willis final.  Happy to have finally made it to a Tomczak Bowl, and you easily made it worth the drive!  Definitely hoping to get back there next year.  The bar was super cool,  the mini pitchers were cheap and delicious, and the post-game shenanigans at Paul's Tavern and the karaoke bar were the usual awesomeness.   Thanks again - Looking forward to seeing everyone in Madison!
