We will be playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch, which is scheduled to release the day before the date of the event. One of the new features in this game is an option that prevents a player from driving off the course. So anyone is welcome to compete on the BIG screen!
This tournament is a charity event so all participants are required to raise a minimum of $50 for JDRF. Those who raise more than $50 can earn extra race points for the tournament. The more extra race points a participant has, the better chance he/she will have of winning his/her first race and advancing past the first round. Plus, all NOVAGG Meetup members with a paid membership earn twice as many extra race points!
Thank you for posting this, RMC!
This event is taking place at the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater in Ashburn, VA. It’s a special theater where you can order food and drinks at your seat and have them brought to you.
We have some great prizes to award to tournament winners and participants like The Legend of Zelda: Arts and Artifacts hardcover book, tickets to Super Smash Con 2017, Mario Kart themed trophies, and more.
Feel free to sign up if you are interested!
Also, if anyone has any questions or any suggestions for how we can best spread the word, please let me know.
This is a great idea! I wish I lived closer to participate (even though I'm a terrible Mario Karter).
