IFPA Tourney: Super Duper Grover II Southeast FL Dec 29
« on: November 15, 2018, 09:31:52 AM »
The Super Grover format is returning! The event was at max capacity last year, register NOW!

Location: Coral Springs/Parkland area, FL

Host/TD Jeff Palmer

Saturday, December 29, 2018.

THIS IS NOT A FLiPS EVENT!

This will be for IFPA/WPPR points-This might be your last chance to squeeze into the top 24 of the SCS! Check out IFPA website for other details. (pending approval)


Format:

SUPER DUPER GROVER.  Continuing the tradition of a phrase I coined ages ago at a Super Hero Tourney.  Last place is called “Super Grover”.

This is basically a 2 STRIKES format where if you come in last twice, you are out.

More details:

2 strikes, Best-of-1 Matches (4 player matches – ONLY 4th place gets a strike). Groupings, play order, and games will be randomly generated. Games will consist of EM games, Solid State games and DMD games.

In the event that a grouping of 2 or 3 players occurs, ONLY 1 strike will be awarded to the last player.

Play continues each round until one player remains.



What's it worth for the SCS?

Should be worth about 17-18 points assuming similar turnout to 2017.

https://www.ifpapinball.com/tournaments/view.php?t=22077


Entry fees:

Nothing.  That's right, ZERO DOLLARS. (I will take care of IFPA fees).   Prizes for 1-4 places. Ties settled as necessary to resolve top 4 players for prizes. How a player actually finishes after the 2nd Strike will be what is submitted to IFPA.


Player Registration:

30 players max.  Players must register via PM via this website or PM to the TD /host by December 22, 2018 to reserve a spot. No guests or spectators please.  You show, you play.

In the event more than 30 players want to register, a wait list will be generated. Please do not register if you are waffling on attending. 

The host/TD reserves the right to expand the registration limit depending on demand, but there is no guarantee this will happen.  Early registration is highly recommended. 


Date/Time:

Saturday, December 29, 2018

Doors open at 11:30 am, tourney starts promptly at noon.

There will be a side tourney for cash prizes (not for IFPA points)

More details to follow.

See you soon!


Contact: Jeff Palmer (pinballcorpse at yahoo dot com) or PM via this site to register and get directions to the event.

If you did not go last year, this is a really interesting event. I love this format, and last year's final-final-final game of 2017 had a lot riding on it. (If Steve Marsh won Paragon he would make the state championships. And he did!)

I hope my request to attend will be accepted!

Yes, Steve edged in to the SCS and we ended up playing in the first round at states :)

Yes you are in :)

Danny,  there's a lot of.... Well badness in the world today. I see it in the court everyday. I've sentenced boys younger than you to the gas chamber.... didn't want to do it.... felt I owed it to them.
