I am looking forward to competing this weekend.

I initially thought each tourney would be worth less than 100% based on the format with no byes, (only 14 meaningful games for 56% plus 20% for the hours) but remembered the new scoring format by IFPA allows for 2x the meaningful value with 4 player groups. 

The SCS landscape will probably change quite a bit after this event. :)

Mystery title did not materialize.  Will probably be ACDC premium.

On a whole the tournament was a huge success.  Leon and the FPF organizers gave us everything we asked for to help make this tournament better.  Many thanks to them and all the volunteers and those who provided games.

Great tournament! Had a blast. Thanks for all those who made this event awesome. I hope to see this tournament back on the PAPA circuit next year. Well done. I can't wait to get another crack at quarterback!

I just set the Quarterback up in my game room and played a few games.  It is a lot of fun for sure.
One side note...  When I got home there was a package at my door that contained the new QB backglass that I have been waiting for months for.   Oh well.  It was a great tournament game despite the nasty broken backglass that was in it!

Hey John,
I just noticed that the results of B division are not showing up in the final results for the main tournament. I would assume I should be #17, #18 should be Kent Anderson, # 19Ron Hallett Jr. ect as this was the order in which finals were recorded. Thanks Dan

Actually the B Division is for prestige, a trophy and prize money.  B Division is not an IFPA sanctioned tournament.    For IFPA points, that is strictly taken from qualifying position in the Main.

It's one if my current keepers, but Don Bosworth has dibs on it if I sell it.  It would end up in Nebraska or Carolina at that point.

That game was a lot of fun.  I enjoy exploring new games in tourneys, especially older titles. Thanks for bringing it.
