We are happy to announce that City Champ 8 will be held on June 22-23 at Free Gold Watch in San Francisco. Format will be similar to previous years. Qualifying is 12 rounds of tiered-Swiss matchplay. Playoffs will be undergoing a slight change to a Pinburgh-style format. Three banks of four games (EM, Solid State, Early DMD, Modern DMD/LCD). Full details at http://sfpins.org/city-champ/ Tickets will go on sale on April 6 at 11:00AM PDT. https://citychamp8.eventbrite.com/
With @JimiWolf moving from the Bay Area, the new tournament directors are @genex and myself. The rest of the volunteers, techs, and officials will largely be the same, so we expect to have the same quality of tournament as in the past.
Apologies for the change from our normal dates and the relatively short notice. When trying to schedule the event, it became clear that many of our techs and volunteers strongly preferred not having the event during our usual time frame. The adjusted date will allow us to put on the best event we can, this year and in the future. We hope that many of you will be able to join us.
Was also hoping to attend City Champ this year, but it won’t be 2019 due to the big date change. Also bummed that it’s now scheduled the same weekend as the Bat City Open Stern Pro Circuit event that we announced in January. But I fully appreciate that without the TDs, techs, and volunteers – there is no tournament.
So for those of you that don’t get your City Champ tickets tomorrow, please consider making the trip to Austin for the Bat City Open that same weekend. Happy clicking/refreshing, everyone!
We’ll be posting the sales date for the BCO circuit match-play event within the next 1-2 weeks.
