Title: APE Tournament - Volunteers for scoring needed
Post by: John I on February 12, 2016, 09:32:11 PM
The Main and Classics Tournaments at APE will be using the latest version of the pinball scorekeeping system from "It Never Drains".   We are thrilled and very thankful to have an opportunity to use this software.  Scores are kept using handheld tablets.  Players can monitor scoring data in realtime on their smartphones.  The software also keeps track of the waiting lines for games using the "queue" system.  Players will be able to move around rather than playing musical chairs and be able to keep track of their place in line using their phones.  Bring your chargers!!

We are looking for some volunteers to help keep score and enter players into the queue.  As a reward for your efforts, scorekeepers will be awarded three entries for an hour of score keeping or seven entries for each two hours of score keeping.  Entries can either be used for Main or Classics play. 

This system is set up to mirror the entry fees for the tournaments.  $10 buys three games in the Main Tournament or three games in the Classics.   We are introducing a new option to the APE tournaments; $20 will buy seven games in the Main Tournament or seven games in the Classics.

If you are interested contact me via PM or volunteer at the show.  I have a schedule that I can fill out.  Please forward this message as you see fit.

John:

I am happy to help keep score and have used the system previously.  Can I commit to fill in when needed, rather than at a specific time, as I do not know how qualifying will go for me?

Big thanks to everyone who helped with scoring.  I know a lot of people helped but I want to make a special shout out to Ron for this help while on a bum knee.  He went over and above the call of duty.
