My name is Darryl Meadows aka Zyzoxing.

I am organizing a unique Nintendo eSports Convention. The event will feature some of Nintendo's most popular games for competition and cash prizes. As this is my first year organizing the event there are a lot of steps that must be covered and as such the event date is still TBD(To Be Decided) But we're aiming for the end of March 2017 in order to have the event around the time of the Nintendo NX launch.

The main events will be:

Super Smash Bros for Wii U (Singles and Doubles)
Pokken Tournament
Splatoon
Mario Kart 8

I'm looking at ways to expand the event and make it a unique experience like having Cosplay contests as well as Panels with a focus on how to improve your skill and gameplay. These panels I hope will draw in a lot of lesser experienced players to help them step up their game and be informative towards advanced players that may have only a few gaps left in their game to claim that top spot.

As with any convention there are major startup costs. We're using Kickstarter to fund the convention. You'll be able to donate or pre-register for the event. There's only 30 days left in the campaign and I'm going to be reaching out towards every community so that we can bring this event to life and provide another opportunity for gamers to make a living competing.

So I'd appreciate if you could take a few minutes out of your day. Head on over to the Kickstarter and help contribute to this event. Share it with your other gaming friends and before you know it March will be here and people will be gathering from all over to come win some money playing the games you love. Thank you for your time. If you have any questions about myself or the event. You can reach me on Twitter @greasycon

I figure if there's enough interest I could run it. But as I no longer own a Wii/Gamecube or the game. It would be difficult to get the equipment unless I had people bring theirs. At the same time I was hoping to have a few Nintendo NX to play so didn't know how interested people would be in Melee in another 9-10 months. Granted it's lasted this long.

Also the venue isn't super large and Melee draws a large crowd which I'd hate to have to turn down people if there isn't room.

Im actually very interested in this because March is my birthday month and its not as far from me (out in MD). First off how long do you plan to hold this con? Second I'd be possibly willing to help out. I could bring in my Wii U if needed cause I have all those games listed except for Pokken Tournament.
