Last Wednesday was my school's Thanksgiving feast. Every year we have this event where the students, teachers, and alumni get together, play some games, and eat a lot of great food (If you've been reading a while, you probably remember last year's). The most prominent part for me, though, is the Annual Super Smash Bros. Tournament! It was started by Adam in his freshman year, and when he went off to college, Zachary took over the role of host. They still come back to play, but now that they've both graduated, this year was my first year as the host. I think I did a pretty good job organizing it, if I do say so myself. I decided that this year, I was going to kick it up a notch. I printed out a big poster for the bracket, and put on Velcro, so people would be represented by their fighters' icons, which I thought was pretty cool. I made a trophy, and I got a $20 Nintendo eShop gift card for the prize. I made a few announcements about the tournament in the week prior, and people applauded, they were really excited about it. The sign-up sheet was completely full when the day finally came around. A lot of experienced competitors and new faces were there, but I'd been training for months. I was really excited, and really confident.
