Time: 12PM SHARP START TIME (games will go on at 10am for practice and will turn off at 11:45AM so we can start announcements). Qualifying will consist of 2 sessions. Session 1 will go from 12pm to 1:30pm, and then we will break for 15 minutes. Session 2 of qualifying will go from 1:45pm to 3:15pm(no games will start after 3:15PM). After session 2, we will then break for 2 to 2.5 hours to enjoy a nice BBQ. I will be grilling everything from hot dogs, to burgers, to chicken, to steak skewers. If you want to bring a covered side dish, please feel free. While we break for the BBQ, we will have yard games setup like Volleyball, Badminton, Corn Hole, and Pole Bash. After everyone eats and drinks, we will start Finals sometime between 5:30-6pm.

Format: Flip Frenzy for qualifying broken out into 2 sessions. Session 1 will go from 12pm to 1:30pm, and then we will break for 15 minutes. Session 2 of qualifying will go from 1:45pm to 3:15pm(no games will start after 3:15PM). Games will be played in head to head matches with a queue system. After 3 hours of qualifying the top 8 based on “net wins” will move on to the “A” division finals(finals format TBD). “Net Wins” is determined by the number of wins minus the number of losses.
Tiebreakers will be decided by “most wins” and “fewest losses”
Finals Format: To be determined still. We will definitely have the Top 8 moving on to the “A” finals, but still deciding on something fun for multiple division finals.
- Players may not concede the game prior to the start of ball 3
- In the event that a registered player is late at the start of a match, that player will be moved to the end of the queue and will also receive a loss for that match.
