Actually Christian, you may want to check whether or not you're even allowed in the place. It IS a bar after all.

If they are not letting Mame  scores in  Dean would have never been in KO1

He wouldn't really have any scores in other then mame if it wasn't for Kong Off Events.

So that wouldn't be  fair to change rules now.

I wouldn't  be going to the Kong Off if this is the case.

Whats the point of these Wild Card Events ? About 90 percent of the players are Mame players.
I'll... probably go? ;>
However, if TG/Richie Knucklez don't accept MAME scores as a "top 12" score, as many people have been suggesting as a possibility, then I'm not going to. :)

The people making the rules are the ones who decide if they are fair or not. They decided who gets in and who does not. They can change the rules, make exceptions and even exclude players that may me to busy guarding a bridge at the time...

When the time comes, Chris, we should use the results of this list to make a group FB message (or... can we do group messages on DKF?) where people can post their cell #'s. I made one last year for the KO2 for a bunch of people, and I think it came quite in handy.

I'd actually like to know if Phil Tudose is even planning to go!

Which is another reason why I'm making this thread to gauge things.

If Phil's not even going, then the MAME concern will go back to being a moot point (for the moment at least).

Probably best to think positive about TG and how they're gonna handle it. If the entire lineup (except for maybe 12th place ;D) is unanimous that "x" player should be in, whether Phil or Ben or whoever, I think Richie will be cool about it. It's Richie.

Dean is the King of the Mame  guys.. He wouldn't have a dk Arcade score without an Kong Off Event

Good point. I hadn't thought of that. Ahem... When I said I was 17, it was actually a typo; I meant to write 27 all this time. Whoops! ;P

But seriously: Is there any law against 18-year-olds entering bars in Colorado (since I will be 18 by the time of the Kong Off 3)? If not, does Richie Knucklez have any rule against allowing minors into his establishment? I know that I've been in bars before here in Kentucky, even back when I was around 3 or 4 years old. Didn't Vince go when he was 19 or 20 or something? Usually age restriction laws and rules in the USA are either set to 16, 18, or 21; if it is the case that Vincent was allowed in before his 21st birthday, then odds are that I'll be able to get in, too.

I guess if I can't even get in the place, I probably won't go... ;>

Edit: Just learned the 1-UP isn't owned by Richie nor is it the same place as where the Kong Off 1 was held, and that minors aren't allowed inside... so I guess I'll show up at the Kong Off 6 ;D

Edit again: Vince and Dean both said that minors were allowed to Kong Off 2, and were only required to wear a different color bracelet to signify that they weren't of drinking age. They said that even Jordan's kids were running around in there, so I imagine that it will be a non-issue. I guess I will show up at the Kong Off 3!

Just bought my airfare, hos!

Five months early might be excessive but what the hell, I was excited.

I will get there on Thursday night and leave Monday morning. I have a hotel in mind so you can pencil me off the "room share" list. (If you knew what I did in my sleep, you would not want to share a room with me. Trust me. This is no joke!)

It's on...

I'm not sure yet.  I've been told by my cardiologist that it is not recommended I migrate to a high altitude.  I haven't decided whether to ignore him or not.

It would take a miracle...

This is now a definite "yes." Plane tickets purchased and hotel booked as of last night. Oh yer.
