A2015 Location Announcement

Postby Dark Angel » Sun Nov 30, 2014 6:22 pm

This years Armageddon will be held in the North Central Area (think Michigan, Ohio, potentially into Canada if we can find a good deal). Even through we visited this area before, I would like to visit as many centers that Armageddon has not been to. Quality is the most important aspect of this tournament however. We will not have a port of entry until probably the end of the this year as we receive more information on what options we have up there.

I would love to have a New Orleans Armageddon, but transplanting systems across that distance is a huge risk. To do this correctly, it requires the tournament to fly people that can set it up in advance. I think in the near future we will get there, but I don't think we are there quite yet.

Perhaps my center is too far out of the way, but here is what I can offer:
Available virtually any date and time. The only thing to avoid is when we are playing movies, which will be from 7pm until about 2am, and that may only be on Friday/Saturday, I will have to find out.
IF Cleveland was the port of entry, it may be possible to keep the cars at the Drive-In, if this is wanted, I will see if this is possible.

Full concession stand that I can have opened to serve food. You can see our menu here: http://www.skywaydrivein.com/menu/
We can make arrangements for special dietary needs.

Sites:

Ft Wayne, IN Ultrazone, sev-fusion on modified nexus/zone hybrid packs (nexus phaser, infusion vests) Packs are well teched and the site is one of the best sites in the country.

Clinton Township, MI Laser Edge, laser force, best arena I've ever played, packs are well maintained and the owner is a wonderful man.

Howell, MI Castaway Cove, blast, they're our blast players, site's up to par for the tournament and the packs are taken care of.

These all should be a must.

Quest with Canada:

1 Oakville, Ontario Brand new Style packs!
2 Mississauga, Ontario Awesome Arena,newer style packs but a little older

Without Canada
1 Akron, Ohio has bigger towers then Canton
2 Centerville, Ohio Smaller towers probably would be best to use a three team format open arena.
3 Canton, Ohio Smaller towers probably would be best to use a three team format open arena.

Other options:
Delta Strike: would be London, Ontario Only the russians know about Delta Strike, Never has been used for tournament play.

Laser maxx Oshawa, Ontario really crappy arena is what I have been told.

Canada opens a door to many options:

LaserMaxx, DeltaSrike, TOP notch Tactical/Quest, Tron, Nexus - but it would mean cutting down on the travel in the US + passports.

My list

Blast: Castaway Cafe
Force: Laser Edge
Zone: Fort Wayne Ultrazone
Storm: Skyway Drive-in
Quest: Akron
* Import Qzar anywhere friendly

Maybes:
Darklight: Laser Web Cincinnati?

Would be awesome, but it seems to far out of the way: Tactical & Quest in Canada. (Next year geddon in Canada!)

Actually with me being mr negative towards tactical. With what hot dice has posted about the beta system from Toronto I would support it. It looks like there's a ton of potential
