I can go on and on about certain things that have happened over many years and talk about how I haven't agreed with many situations that have brought the scene to where it is today. But by me doing so, it would harm the images of some and then it would just become a childish he said she said type ordeal. So I will show that I have grown as a person and just let things go. From time to time I will share stories on stream about how things used to be and just act like a typical old fart who's talking about his youth while the 09er's just find me borderline insane in my rants :) I can tell all you youngins one thing though. When you hear an elder tell you things like "one day you will understand" or "once you get to my age this is how it will be," take that advice and make use of it. Things do change with time and it's up to you whether or not you make the best of it or if you just follow in the footsteps of those who made the same mistake prior to yours. A lot of mistakes are avoidable and procrastination or lack of care can lead to many issues, but as I have come to realize more and more, you can really only count on yourself when something needs to be done. In the unfortunate case that I am not a professional carpenter, nor am I a professional engineer, I had to rely on people to help me get work done for our remodel. Myself along with a couple others have taken care of the flooring, electrical work, painting, ceiling work, and the amazing restroom. These were all things that required hard work, a bit of experience, and just pure will power basically. Another thing I would also like to state is, for the help I required, plans were made months in advance and partial payments were made to ensure there was no loose ends on my parts. Well low and behold, all 3 parties that I needed all fell through and I was stuck here just twiddling my thumbs waiting for deliveries. My new display counter is apparently made of only the finest of wood in the rain forest and is brought in by helicopter only. My custom cubicles are designed by Albert Einstein and then hand crafted by the Keebler Elves. And the arcade machines I am bringing in.... those are custom built in North Korea and infused with only the most advanced microchips and only available to NASA. I mean gimme a break dude, how do all 3 people I am counting on fail so hard? Well, it happens lol, and Murphy's Law is a mofo. Then while working on the restroom of course we run into more problems. I order a toilet from amazon because no one in the local area stocks the special one I wanted to install. The toilet is what they call a 2-piece, but when it arrived it was in 4 pieces. Real cute right? Man, I can just go on and on about all the little nonsense that has taken place here but we almost at the end of it and no point thinking about the bad.
Here comes some useful info. We will be taking out a select bunch of people from our kickstarter to a VIP dinner tomorrow evening. We will also be having a "soft" grand opening for another group in our kickstarter project. A soft grand opening is technically a half assed opening where stuff is not complete, and this I definitely apologize for. Many things are currently not in my control as to having a time frame for completion so we are forced to just make do with what is here already. Our opening has already been delayed for a week and we need to get the wheels turning again asap. Our weekly tourneys will be starting right up this coming Wednesday and Thursday, and we will also be hosting our Friday night casuals once again. We will also be hosting our bi-weekly anime series known as "Rebel-Up" and our weekly Super Smash Sundays as well. I am going to assume everything we were promised will be here on time, but just incase it isn't, we will have our doors open to the public starting this Saturday and keep working until everything is finished. And since I still have a weekend in the schedule with no tournaments attached to it, I will probably dedicate this day for people who supported us via kickstarter. More info will be coming real soon, and thanks again for reading!
