What hotels motels are near your store? Also could you give addresses to the motels/hotels?

There are a lot. A Holiday Inn Express, Microtel, Ramada, Econo Lodge, Hampton Inn and several others. You're best bet is probably just to Google "Janesville, WI hotels" and figure out what works best for your budget. Most of the local hotels are approximately 5 minutes or so from Kryptonite on Plainfield. Just look for the locations on the north end of town.

Curious, where are you travelling from to go to a tournament in Janesville that you will be getting a hotel/motel?

He and others may be coming from Omaha. They may stop in Des Moines to pick me up as well. Plans are tentative as of now, but this could shape up to be an epic tourney. :)

Janesville is only 60,000 people, so anything in town is within 15 minutes of the store.  GalacticFunk noted the ones on the North/Northeast side which are closest.  But let us know if you need anything more specific.

 

Felt compelled to join us after the discussion of the Nebraska crew on SWMiniverse?  If so, we'll have you guys as guests all the time.  :>)

That would be great to have NE and IA players join us.  SWM Battle of Hoth at the hotel afterwards?  :>)

Shall we plan on seeing the NE and IA players?  Anything you need from us or that we can help you with?

We’ll do four 75 or five 60 minute rounds; depends on attendance.  Results of Swiss will determine standings.

 

We want to finish around the store closing time of ~6pm.

FYI -- The store received 16 of the Imperial Aces packs in case you are looking for one.

 

Or maybe we'll add one to the prize list.  :>)

19 players from a 185 mile radius.

14 Rebel and 5 Imperial.  3 Rebel and 1 Imperial in the top 4 reflected that same ratio.

 

Final standings:

  1. Ryan 4-0 and 20 points
  2. Shawn 3-1 and 15 points
  3. Siri 3-1 and 15 points
  4. Chilo 3-1 and 15 points
  5. Jake 3-1
  6. Steve S 3-1
  7. Tristan 2-2
  8. Greg 2-2
  9. Aaron 2-2
  10. Mark F 2-2
  11. Troy 2-2
  12. Steve L 2-2
  13. Dan 2-2
  14. Owen 2-2
  15. Mark V 1-3
  16. Ted 1-3
  17. Alex 1-3
  18. Tim 0-4
  19. Tom L 0-4

Jake and Tristan were voted as Sportsmanship by their fellow players so they each received a ship expansion courtesy of Kryptonite Kollectibles.

 

A nod to Tristan for having to face four of the top 6 players.  He defeated 6th and 2nd and then lost to 1st and 5th in what looks to be the toughest schedule of the day (I'm not trying to slight those who finished higher by laying a path of destruction in their path).

 

A nod to Troy whose day started at 2am, included work before play, and covered about 700 miles.

 

A nod to Siri who rolled 4 crits on 4 dice to finish the last game.

 

Thanks to all who came out.  It was great meeting new people, seeing familiar faces, matching forum names with live people, and seeing much great gameplay throughout the day with some epic moments.

Huge thanks to Tim for sitting out the tournament to be the TO! The event went really smoothly and was a lot of fun.

Special thanks to Kryptonite Kollectibles who kicked in extra prize support!

It was great to meet a bunch of new people and spend time playing and talking X-Wing all day.

Thanks to Tim and Kryptonite for running a fun and smooth event. I had a blast even though I only went 2-2. I expected to do much better. I wish you could have played Tim. Everyone I faced was a blast to play against.
