I’ll let @pinwizj shoot me down if he wants, but since technically each game can be completed in one ball, I assume we will get the same credit as pingolf. 1/3 a game per game in qualifying. So 2 meaningful games in qualifying. Then obviously the direct play group match play for finals would get us another 12-18 meaningful games depending on the turnout.
Hey Eric! Seven hour drive from B’ham but I’m thinking about it. Question: It’s pretty obvious that you would need to buy the show ticket in addition to the tournament ticket to compete. Is there anything on the website that would make that clear? Is it possible for someone to just buy the tourney ticket without knowing they need to buy the show ticket as well?
Possible issue with the Gauntlet: if you let people play the games in any order, this presumes only one person at a time is in progress, otherwise two players could need to play the same game at the same time. If many players take the full 7 minutes, you could end up only having time for 25 or so people to participate [10 a.m. to 1 p.m. is 3 hours, 180 minutes, divide by 7 and you get 25.7]. You might want to rethink the format and or hours.
Hey Chris! In the process of making that clear on the tickets page. But you are right, show passes are separate from the tournament passes. Need to buy both if you want in the tournament a la Pinburgh and replay.
Thanks Bob. So the limit per person is 6 minutes and yes only one person running the Gauntlet at a time. I estimate about 30 unique players would get one try in that time. 25-30 and that is fine. Hence only taking 4 to finals. If you have not seen a Gauntlet like this before, it’s awesome. Crowds will love it.
Exciting news! ALL 120 games have been signed up and committed to the show! I am working with the website guy this month to get it published to the public, but pretty excited to have this many games locked in already!
