What's up with the Game Tourney?

Today we'll be doing the last of the band qualifier events at 1pm at Jimmie B Keel Regional Library so we can find a band to represent that library at the Rock Band 2 Battle of the Bands next Saturday.
I'll be back soon with the updated schedule for next Saturday's Grand Tournament and the line-up of bands selected at the 8 regional qualifying events!
Til then, keep practicing for the big event ...
There'll be lots of DDR, Guitar Hero and Rock Band prize challenges to win
PLUS open gaming all day
AND a LIVE concert appearance by ENVY
(And in case you were wondering, it's ALL FREE!)
