Updated Wii Tournament standings

We have reached the end of August and have almost wrapped up the Wii Tournament for 2009. There will not be any more dates scheduled in September, but we may be able to set up one more before the finale on October 24. With only one more possible date to go, we have clinched two titles! Bryce has claimed hold of the Manitowoc Champion banner with decisive wins in Super Smash Brothers Brawl and Wii Sports Bowling. There is no way anyone can catch him at this point so congratulations Bryce - we will see you at the finale.

There are still 3 games to be determined so keep an eye out for a future tournament date the final rounds to pick our remaining champions!

Guitar Hero World Tour

For Guitar Hero, we are averaging the best three scores that each player can post for three different songs. The top average score will advance, though at least one of those scores must be posted at either the hard or expert level. In the unlikely event of a tie, the best note streak will serve as the tie-breaker.
