Spectating Venue Fee
If you are a person who enjoys to watch the action for entertainment you can choose to pay for a spectator venue fee;

$30.00 USD (All Weekend Pass) *All spectating fees are at door-registration, the day of the event. There is no pre-registration for this option.

I'm going to be the main TO for Skullgirls this year. As a result its going to be my responsibility to make sure SG runs well and everyone has a good time. Put your faith and me and come to this event!

*IMPORTANT* If you are only entering Skullgirls register under Tier 2. It will make venue fee a little bit cheaper. This goes for anyone only wanting to enter Tier 2 games. If you want to enter Skullgirls and a Tier 1 game, simply register under Tier 1.

I have the time off now, but I can't book a room because lack of credit card. Anyone open to an extra person? Will have cash at the ready.
Didn't see an update here, so I'll just bump this with some news:

The Skullgirls Tour is giving this event a $500 pot bonus. In addition to that, there's a "Road to Defend the North" event going on that we'll be streaming on Stream.me/SkullgirlsTour. That event is getting a $100 pot bonus, it's free entry, and for every 5 pre-registers for Skullgirls at Defend the North before July 8th we'll add $25 to that pot up to a max of $300. So, if you're attending, pre-register soon! Even if you aren't entering the online tourney, you help put money back into the community.
