Colorado in March: WPPRtunity & Womens & Pinmasters & Nationals

As you may know, Denver is hosting Nationals, the Women’s World Championships, and Pinmasters March 5th -> March 8th.

In the interest of WPPRtunities, we are working on finalizing details on other tournaments for those who want to extend their trip a day or two, or aren’t sure what to do with themselves during their off session time from pingolf.

We’ve nearly finalized: a large tournament Wednesday night (March 4th) at 1up Greenwood Village, a large strikes tournament Thursday night (March 5th) at 1up Colfax, and a flip frenzy on Sunday (March 8th) at Blizzard Mountain.

I’m also working on trying to add a Herb style qualifying event that could run Friday and Saturday (so you can play it on your off-hours from pingolf).

So, if you’re getting your flights, consider coming in Wednesday afternoon and flying out Sunday night.

If I know there is demand for more, we could try and get something together for Tuesday the 3rd or Monday the 9th. We don’t get a lot of chances to host people from outside of Colorado - so we’re trying to make the most of it!

All of these events have player caps…register now!

Let’s go “WPPRtunity”! We can’t leave the EUROs taking all the big Wppr’s opportunity from for themselves! :smiley:

I like this idea, we’ve discussed doing something similar in Oklahoma in the future. If tournaments do get put together, I’d try to get in Tuesday to play in as many as I could.

For the Wednesday (and Thursday) tournos is there any pre-registration or is it first come, first served at the door? The link leads via IFPA to the Colorado FB page without further info that I could see

A registration process for the Wednesday and Thursday tournaments is being setup and we should have info for you tonight or tomorrow.

Colorado is a chill place to play. Sometimes…too chill. :wink:

Many thanks to Ryan Wanger for herding our cats.
