3:00 - 4:30 : Qualifying rounds, the top three scores on the official Nintendo World Championship game will move on to the championship round.
4:30 - 6 : Screening of THE WIZARD
6:00 : Championship round, the top three of the day compete head-to-head on Super Mario Bros 3.

Grand prize is an official Nintendo World Championship reproduction cart!

Hosted by Jonathan "SILVERMANIA" Silverman, music by Dj Cutman.

THE WIZARD is a heartwarming illustration of the true power of Nintendo-brand video games.  A mentally disturbed young boy with unnatural gaming skills desires to recapture a past happiness, leading to a cross country road trip with his older brother (Fred Savage) and wise-beyond-her-years friend (Jenny Lewis).  The boys' father (Beau Bridges) and oldest brother (Christian Slater) are hot on their trail as is a meddlesome bounty hunter.  Their journey leads them to the Nintendo World Championships in California ("Califooorniaaa") where a family once divided now stand united before the glory of Super Mario Bros 3.  Come enjoy the film that Roger Ebert called "a cynical exploitation film with a lot of commercial plugs".  It's so bad.
