Hi there!
This is my first time hoping to compete in a tournament at ACen, but I'm a bit shaky on the details for how to go about signing up for tournaments.
The one I am interested in is the SSBB on Friday at 7p.m. My questions are:
1. When/where do you sign up? Is there a time frame that you must sign up in?
2. Is there an entry fee? How much?
3. Will Gamecube controllers be provided or should I plan to bring my own?
4. Any idea on how the tournament is set up (round robin, 2/3 etc.).

Thank you to anyone who can help!

I will (hopefully) be attending ACen 2015 as an Artist.

From my knowing last year, you just have to go at least an hour or two before the event to where it's held and put your name on a sheet, and there's no entry fee.

Not sure about the last two, sorry!

Thank you for the response! My biggest concern was making sure I signed up in time, but since I'm in the AA I can't keep going back and forth and waiting for it to open. I'll plan then to go about two hours early!

1. When/where do you sign up? Is there a time frame that you must sign up in?
-Inside of of the Video Gaming area, which is in the International Ballroom in the Hilton Hotel.
--Tournament: Super Smash Bros - Special Rules/Settings is at 2-4pm on Friday
--Tournament: Super Smash Bros. Brawl is at 7-9pm on Friday
--Tournament: Super Smash Bros. Melee is at 2-4pm on Saturday
2. Is there an entry fee? How much?
--There is no entry fee. Just have your ACen 2013 badge with you at all times.
3. Will Gamecube controllers be provided or should I plan to bring my own?
--Due to the many different types of GameCube and Wii Controllers, I suggest you bring your own. We will have some controlllers, but it may not fit your interests and/or style.
4. Any idea on how the tournament is set up (round robin, 2/3 etc.).
==The plan for the Smash tournaments is to have a 1 v 1 match with 3 stock lives per round.

Thank you for your help!
As the other poster said, for sign-ups, is it generally about 1-2 hours is registration before the start of the tournament?
Also, do you know if we can ask to play just a little later than the 7pm start? I've got a photo shoot at 6:30 pm and I will sprint to be there for 7pm, but if I'm a little late I don't want to miss my match and be disqualified. Not certain if that's possible, but figured I'd ask!
Can't wait!

There are multiple Smash Bros tournaments. I can attempt to add you to the last round of the 1st rounds, but time is a bit cramped...

I appreciate that :) I'm only going to be able to make it to the one at 7-9 on friday (I can't leave my artist table during the day!). I would never ask for anyone to bend over backwards, but when I come to register (hopefully pop over around 5ish) maybe just have the register-er make a note if possible.
