No that will not work because I heard there will be a Beagleburg tourney... How about Aug 9-10

I'm an idiot about my previous recommendation of Aug. 2-4 because that is also Pinburgh, and I'm going to it!  :P

My initial research of August 9-10 looks good. I am hoping others chime in with more info.

Nothing set in stone yet on Beagleburg 2, but a possibility for the ones of us not going to pinburg. You wouldn't want to loose that possible body count that weekend.

AUGUST 9-10 WILL NOT WORK BECAUSE OF LOBSTER FEST... I THINK AUGUST 16-17 MIGHT BE A BETTER WEEKEND

You mean Lobsterfest at Red Lobster?  ;D  I can't believe that could disrupt a whole weekend! LOL

As to 8/16-17, that might work. (Something will work eventually!)

Eventually it becomes apparent there is probably a conflict with something, somewhere and someone. There is no perfect date.

Rank the most probable conflicts that will affect your organizers, game suppliers and your target audience.

To add to the mix I am pretty sure the Asylum holds its PAPA style event on August 17 -18

Pinburgh and mini lobster season (heavy traffic and tourist) also seem big issues.

After that you have to just choose something and let things fall where they may. There’s just way too much stuff going on to keep track of it all.

August 17-18, 2019 is PAPA style at the Asylum.

The organizers need to work with the people from South Florida who are bringing games to even have a tournament and not necessarily worry about the few players from Florida that are attending the SFGE.  No games, no tournament.  Even with SFGE in play on July 12-14, 2019, it is a long way to travel for many people in South Florida, especially if it's not even a Stern Pro Circuit Event.  Additionally, none of the points that may be garnered in Atlanta will apply to your Florida State ranking, if that's your concern.

Personally, I think July 12-14, 2019 is the best weekend. 

Pick a date and get commitment.  It can always be canceled without enough support.

Of the people who have responded here, would you commit to coming if this was not held on the weekend July 12-14, 2019?  Please note that some of these people are currently from Winter Haven, Lutz and Brandon, FL and would need to travel a substantial distance either way.

I will probably do it most any weekend (if I can get transport for a game). The weekend after Labor Day is out for me, though. I doubt we're talking that far in advance!

It's really up to Scott in the end. If we are going that deep into August with conflicts, you might as well go back to "Page 1" of this post and start thinking 7/12-14 again.

I'm agree with David P.. , July 12/14 will be the best dates , I think is our chance to help  Florida Tournaments  like Jeff P.... said we need to grow our Florida tournaments to reach a Super State again. and also should be a nice weekend to rest , play and meet friends.

I will update on the pinball tournament here after this weekend. Still waiting to hear back from motels. But we'll go back to the July 12th and 13th date

I really need a good excuse to get back down to the Keys - it's been at least 3 years since my last trip.

I hope it works out where this falls on an open baseball weekend for me.
