VGG's to everyone at TORYUKEN 5 this year! Happy to see some new faces come out and support the scene! Some great battles went down, including two tight matches involving Erik & Raymond! Congrats to them for runner up! Shame that a couple people didn't join in the fun today *coughsalexlucacoughs*, but still a very enjoyable event. Also, Christie will continue to have no friends .

Venue fee is cheap because it isn't a special venue like a hotel or a convention centre, so it should be easier to increase the pot. At $10, it'll be easier to give a payout to 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th. At $5, only 1st & 2nd would get a payout at 80/20.
I'm not complaining; I've always wanted it to be 10. Gives me a little more incentive to come.
When I had my pick-up, it was 30 to Toronto and back, venue fee, then 5 to play. It was 40+ to come play. Even if we have 10 people (and we never do) it's a $50 pot, so I'm never breaking even, even if I win.
Got some hardware for the TO Summer Bash 2016 next month on August 7th. It'll be our way of commemorating DOA's 20th anniversary. Legendary Goken will also contribute a prize or two to the event (any other donations would be appreciated). Ideas for raffle prizes can also be listed in here, and if you can contribute. If you enter the event for $10 or help contribute to the event, you get a free raffle entry. Additional entries can be bought for $2 (or $5 if we get any big ticket items like a TV or something).
- A DOA5LR WarGames Team Battle can be a feature at the event
