Large scale tournament st augustine
« on: May 28, 2016, 09:14:17 PM »
heres what I've come up with after talking with john (rocket man) Inglefritz and jeff (the pinball analyst) palmer.
we have 2 options of tournament style in order to maximize points for the weekend. the following points estimates are based on 24 people friday, and 32 people for sat/sun. we should hit this number as we have 12 players locally that are ranked and are participating. HERB style or MATCH play 

HERB
we can either do the same style that we see most places.  best of 5 games, high score with a finals (HERB). running a main, classics, and a project pinball high score each day.  this would be a total of 5 tournaments that would run during the weekend, so if a player isn't ranked they would be by the end of the weekend. my estimated total for WPPR points based on the player count for winner would be
MAIN - 20
CLASSIC - 12
SIDE (each day) - 1.5

MATCH PLAY
this would be a daily tournament. meaning that every day would be its own tournament.  we would still try and operate a side tournament daily for project pinball.

 each player would be matched up randomly to start the tournament in a 4 player group. each group would play 4 games per round. 1 classic, 1 newer stern style, 1 solid state, and another of any category.  this would equal 4 points minimum, or 16 point maximum for the round.
after finishing the round, the following round will be grouped based on points earned. so basically if you do well you play others that are doing well to generate a fair and competitive atmosphere.

friday we would do 3 rounds only.
saturday there would be 2 one hour rounds before lunch and 2 one hour rounds after lunch. this would  we are trying to mimic pinburgh, in the sense that there wouldn't be any down time.
so the road to the daily finals would be a total of 16 games played. with a field of 16 in the finals.

i picture the schedule going like this

FRIDAY
5pm - start
8pm - finish 3rd round
8:30 - start finals

SATURDAY/SUNDAY
10am - start
12noon - finish 2nd round/lunch
1:30 - start 3rd round
3:30 - finish 4th round
4pm - start finals

-----------------------------------------

having a tournament each day like this should award, based on above players

day 1 - 12 points/ pp 1
day 2 - 16 points/ pp 1
day 3 - 16 points/ pp 1

The tournament was a lot of fun and a nice lineup of games!!  There were plenty of EMs and SS, not to mention a huge row of the latest Sterns!  I really liked the modified Pinburgh format too.  It made for a great day of playing.  I didn't do to well, but at least I didn't get booted out early like I would have in a 3-strike tournament.

Joe put in a lot of work to make this a great event.  It ran smooth as can be with Lauren doing all the accounting and score keeping throughout the day.  The venue was also really nice with crankin air conditioning and great food nearby.
