Default Stand Up Challenge Cup Championship Preparations

The winners and runners-up of the regional qualifiers will move on to the tournament in Florida, with the winners having our trips paid for by Bushiroad. This doesn't cover travel from the airport to the tournament, food, and so forth, however; they're only going to cover the hotel and airfare.

So, how is everyone going to handle transportation, food, and so forth? Just how much money should we expect to bring to cover everything? Perhaps we should get together and carpool?

Discuss ideas and form plans. I, for one, would like this tournament to go off without a hitch on our side.

I can arrange for a batmobile to pick us up, and have a luscious banquet awaiting us at our destination.

Only if Batgirl's driving. :3

But seriously, things like this should be planned out. I just thought it would be useful if people who were going would plan ahead together for what to do about food, transportation, and whatever else.

I have nothing against that plan, except for walking everywhere. I'd get lost very quickly.

If you don't wanna get lost, get a map and a compass.

I don't recommend a 100% fast food diet. It'll make you sluggish in health and that can affect gameplay, surprisingly. Try to take enough to do Subway at the very least, so you can get semi-decent vegetable intake and whatnot. I also recommend fruit for snacking on, it keeps you feeling refreshed.

Or if you must do fast food, just buy pizza the entire time you're there. Little Caesar's $5 pizza can feed one person for 2-3 meals at a time. :3

Well, I haven't been contacted yet. They need time to process all of those W-9s. I bet some winners didn't even do the W-9 right away.

So, this guy claims I'm dysfunctional. You know, as in I don't function correctly?

*snipes his D off*

Now he doesn't function correctly.

Anyone get a call yet from bushi or from a travel agent about the flight? It is almost a month away, wondering if they are waiting till the last minute.

Since the National championship is now less than a week away...

anybody have plans for traveling between the airport and hotel? I'm set to arrive at 3:25 pm on Saturday, assuming there are no delays. As far as I know, requesting SuperShuttle service is costed per person, so meeting up and traveling together to split the cost won't make a difference, unless I'm mistaken.

Unless someone would like to pick me up and drive me to the hotel =P

I am landing early saturday at 9:10am and renting a car with wife and friend. Goal is to get there early enough for my friend to try at the last chance tournament and for me to get some relax by the pool.
