6 days a way folks! Currently have 43 players signed up. For those returning, we are pretty much going to run everything the same way.
We will have limited beverages available, just like last time so please make sure you BYOB. The big thing here is that we will NOT have 3 cases of donated beer to go around.
We will have the cream cheese dips and the queso dips again along with pretzels, popcorn, cupcakes, and cookies.
We will be looking to start promptly at 1pm, that means practice will end at 1pm and we will make about 5 minutes worth of announcements with the tournament beginning immediately after.
We will break for about 45 minutes after qualifying to allow time for people to slip down to Grotto Pizza or Royal Farms for some famous fried chicken. Also at 4pm we will place an order for pizzas using leftover expense money from the entry fee. Last time we had enough money to order 10 pizzas.
In addition to the main tournament we will also have the 3 side tournaments running which are hidden flipper, highest score on Full Throttle, and highest Token score on Safecracker. Each of these games will cost $1 per attempt, with unlimited attempts allowed.
In addition to the side tournaments, we have come up with a few bonus challenges that will award a mystery amount of money to the winners. The mystery amount will range from $1 to $10. The only way to win these bonus challenges is by playing games during the actual tournament. These are not side pots, or play at your leisure challenges. More details will be explained at the tournament.
We have a few changes to the game lineup with the current list below. Conquest will probably not be back. Stern Stars blew a rectifier board yesterday and burned up a coil so it may not be fixed in time. Possible games that could be added before Saturday are Torch and Count Down.
Current game lineup is X-Men, Earthshaker, Comet, Full Throttle, ToTAN, Metallica, Indy 500, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Jokerz, Road Show, Fish Tales, Cirqus Voltaire, World Poker Tour, No Good Gofers, Phantom of the Opera, Mousin Around, Iron Man, Taxi & Dr. Who
Lastly, try and carpool as much as possible. The less cars we have in the yard the better. Thanks!
See everyone on Saturday!
