The road started yesterday morning, very early. We tossed the kids in the car and started on our way.
The weather was pretty crazy a good chunk of the drive up to the Chicago area, including this rather impressive-looking cloud formation:
Before arriving at Pheasant Run for the 4 p.m. check-in, we decided to do a bit of a tour with the family to visit various locations from our college years—where we met and then got married, so a bit special to us.
After taking them around the Concordia University area, we met my in-laws for dinner and enjoyed some family food while we waited to take off for the venue.
The floor wasn’t open yet (it opens up at noon today), and I had to be up for the volunteer orientation at 10 p.m., so we took the time to enjoy the resort and have some fun. So far’ it’s been a great stay and everyone is having a good time.
I got a good peek at the show floor, which is seriously impressive and I’m looking forward to getting out there and playing.
If you are interested in following along while I see what I’m capable of this weekend and just play some games, meet some people, and have a good time, here’s my schedule and links to the brackets (with links to streams if my pool times are scheduled for stream). I’m also judging some brackets to give back to the community.
PLAY – Killer Instinct: F1 – 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday
ADMIN – Tekken Ball: H1 – 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. Saturday
The floor is almost open – time to get playing. Here’s hoping to no 0-2!
