Just a thought, but there is the Ontario airport.  It's less than 50 miles away from Banning.

Ontario is actually a nice little airport. Not the madness that is LAX, though you will likely not find a nonstop to it.

I didn't even know where Banning was, but apparently it's only about 40 miles from me.

Just saw the post everyone is referencing now. No idea about this latest change and what exactly the "Then the final Kong Off to be done at Richie Knucklez Arcade in Flemington NJ." means. Maybe a KO6 in Banning and then KO7 the following year? I havent seen / heard anything from Richie on this so when/if I do I'll post an update here.

Yup I just chatted to Richie on his stream as well as a FB post. KO6 is in Banning, CA in Mar 16-18.

Does Richie have a DK Forum account?

I think it's pretty cool to have it in California. It's nice to have different locations across the United States, lovit! As for myself, it adds to the cost of the flights, but who knows, wait and see!  :)

Was it established that the next one is definitely in California?  I have never competed due to concerns my scores were not high enough.

In the mean time, I just hit a legitimate 737,800 over the weekend on level 18, my best 3 lives score.  The problem is that I still have games where I barely break 200 or 300,000, especially now that I'm trying to get out of running boards and moderately point pressing with lower hammer.   I have never kill screened, so I'm not sure I'm Kong-Off material.  In any event, I average about 400,000 and would like to participate in the next one in NJ.  What proof is necessary to qualify?  Is a screenshot enough or do I need to film an entire game of at least 600,000, which I understand is the least qualifying score?

I haven't seen any official announcements about a Banning Kong Off, and the last I heard Richie was selling off his arcade in NJ...so that puts a big question mark over a NJ Kong Off as well. I also don't know anything about 600,000 being a qualifying score. At one point Richie was accepting killscreens at specific events as qualifiers, and only one person made that cut.

Well its all over the Banning posters and on Facebook so I would say KO6 is officially at Banning. To me this is probably the last one unless Richie opens a new arcade or they just continue to have it someplace else (Which he did say they are going to try and open the arcade in a new location in that post).

Do you have a link, because I see nothing about the Kong Off on Arcade Expo's website or Facebook page.

Yeah I have to find that I saw posters with it added and Paul Dean and others talking about it as well as Richie but its not on the official site or facebook which is odd for sure.
