Doors will open at 4:30 p.m., with the first game starting at 5:30 p.m.

- Second – $250 gift card for each teammate plus $300 donation to your school (school-sponsored teams) or charity of choice (non-school teams)
- Grand Prize – Xbox Series X console for each teammate plus $500 donation to your school (school-sponsored teams) or charity of choice (non-school teams)
- SMC scholarships ($1,000 pool)
Scholarships will be awarded based on student grade and skill level rather than tournament placement.
Even if you’re just spectating, there’s plenty of fun to be had:
- Door prizes
- Food truck – Sweet Racks & Smokin’ Butts BBQ (while supplies last)
- Board game room
- Yard games
- Feel free to bring your own handheld gaming devices, such as your Nintendo Switch
Admission will be on a first come, first served basis. Priority will be given to school teams. To ensure we have enough space and food for competitors, spectators will be waitlisted.
Note that competitors will not be allowed to use personal peripherals or equipment.
