    The main reason I'm posting right now is this video.....


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Td2IJJ53iw&feature=player_embedded


    It's of Powerglove kicking the living crap out of the Power Rangers Theme and it perfectly sums up the entire GameUniCon. This Convention will kick as much ass as that video.

    Post up here and let me know what you think. It's seriously EPIC.

    We WILL be taking sign ups at the venue!!!! So if you don't have a credit card or you are even better than me at procrastinating then you can sign up at the event.

    BUT!!!!

    If you have your ticket pre bought it will be a really quick thing to get your pass... but if wait to buy there, it's still gonna be fun but you will be waiting in a long line.... I'm not sure why you would ever do this if you know you are coming.


    I would expect a VERY short wait to pick up your pass if you bought it ahead of time and a Hour minimum wait to buy at the venue.... you CAN buy your ticket on Thursday at the venue or any time during the weekend.

    Please please buy your ticket before driving here over the next couple of days!






    ALSO DO NOT PLAN ON USING A CREDIT CARD AT THE VENUE.... this will cause you to wait in an even worse line...


    I warned everyone....


    YOU MUST HAVE YOUR TOURNAMENT PASS BOUGHT TWO HOURS BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT IS SCHEDULED TO START.


    TWO HOURS BEFORE
