PUMP IT UP TOURNEY HELD AT MALL OF AMERICA
For the second year in a row, the Pump-It-Up Championship Series dance competition took place in Bloomington, MN, on March 25, 2006. Held onstage at The Park in the heart of Mall of America, a crowd of hundreds witnessed dozens of contestants from eight states competing for a share of the $1,200 cash purse and exclusive Pump merchandise. Using Andamiro's Pump-It-Up: ZERO, the newly-released and only officially designated version of the PCS, the showdown on the popular dance game rejuvenated players throughout the region with excitement and extra incentive to train further for future tournaments, including the World Pump Festival (WPF) to be held later this year in Seoul, Korea.
The PCS will continue its main event tour across the nation with the next event in June at a soon-to-be announced location. Winners from each of the main events will be pre-qualified for the U.S. National Competition currently scheduled for September 2006. After winning the national title, the new U.S. champions will receive all-expense paid trips to represent the United States at the World Championships at the WPF this November.
