Good news on that front, sonewhat bad news on the KOF front.  There is a scheduling conflict on Saturday night, so we need to have matches for the might wrapped up by 6:30(casuals will still be allowed but there will be lots of loud music and such so not conducive to tourney matches.  Unless KOF had a particularly low turnout(hopefully not) top 8 will need to be on Sunday along with the other main games. AH3 and GG side tourneys are also now on Sunday. I'll have the OP updated with a new schedule tomorrow.

Updated schedule, as mentioned before there was a bit of a scheduling conflict with Pazzo on the Saturday night so we need to have tournament matches done by 6:30pm(people will still be allowed to play games for the rest of the night, but there will be lots of loud music/flashing lights and the stream equipment all needs to be clear from the stage area).  Finals for the main Saturday games will need to be moved to Sunday.

Changes made are as follows:

- VSav moved from 10pm Friday to 4pm Friday
- AH3 moved from 4pm Friday to 12pm Sunday
- GGXX:AC+ moved from 5pm Saturday to 4pm Sunday
- Top 8s for SSFIVAE, UMvC3, KOFXIII, and P4A moved to Sunday

Once tournament play is wrapped up on Sunday the venue will still be open all day for casuals and such.

Very sorry to switch things on you guys again, but this one is actually good news:  The event that was screwing us on Saturday was canceled, so we are free to run all day and knock finals down on Saturday.  We will still be having this as a 3 day event with side tournaments like AH3/Guilty Gear on Sunday, but we're moving finals back to Saturday so people don't have to make an extra trip out if they don't really want to.

Sorry for all of the confusion, this is why you don't plan tournaments with only 4 weeks' notice.
