Greetings!
http://geekway2west.com/register.html
http://bgg.cc/thread/394550

I am organizing a Crokinole Tournament for Saturday April 25th.
NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED TO PLAY!

On Friday, I'll continue to collect/recruit teams. To play, you need a partner and a willingness to have fun. (In fact, if you want to play and don't have a partner, contact me and I'll help you find someone. Its like eHarmony.)

I will teach the game to anyone interested in learning, and there will be ample opportunity for practice and some exhibition games on Friday. You can expect a game to take about 10 minutes, using the tournament scoring....so this tournament is not a large time commitment.

On Saturday we will conduct the matches. You need to plan to be there most of Saturday to participate.

I expect to be using single or double elimination (depending on the response).

And most importantly, at stake is a Fabulous Prize of AWE!! Seriously, I'd love it if we can get like 32 teams.

Early Sign Up:
1) War-Rocket Ajax (Chester O / Scott R)
2) (Chris D / Jay M)
3) The Droid UR Lookin' 4 (Charles H/ Justin E)
4) Team Zambo (Beck / Steve Z)
5) Pretty In Pink (Joel / Daniel)
6) Not in the Face! (Marshall J / Alex J)
7) Crackatack! (Jason N / Chuck E)
8)


Others who have indicated an interest (teammate status is unknown):
Mike (Armadi)
(mistermarino)
James (Iceberg1)
Justin (juheimbu)
Come win the Stanley Cup of Crokinole!!

I can already see the Epic Final with War-Rocket Ajax vs The Droid UR Lookin' 4. Finally, the issue will be settled!

Even though we'll probably suck, Becky and I are most definitely in.

Definitely interested. Want to play but am pretty bad at the game and don't want to frustrate my potential partner.

Maybe we're all sandbagging, but it sounds like we are all a bunch of Crokinole hacks

Hawkeye77 and I are in. "Pretty in Pink" is the name we've chosen to instill fear in our opponents' hearts.

I don't know what all this talk is of being crappy. I'm actually pretty awesome...at least when it comes to shooting my opponents discs in the hole laugh

You guys need a clever name, or you've got no shot.

Wish I could make it!

Was this game named after Walter Crokinole, the long-time news anchor for CBS?

Gah! Definitely interested but I'm not sure I can commit if it goes late Saturday. I don't think my potential teammate can be there later than 4-5pm either.

Hmmm...we can probably purposefully do things to wrap it up by about 5pm. Sign up. Worse that can happen is you forfeit a match for the championship, but I'll just make a point to start it around noon and I think we'll be done by around 5PM, barring massive entries.

That's going to be a tough one. I think you may just be enjoying some exhibition matches. The competition will be going on during the day on Saturday.

See you at the Geekway!

It's now possible that I may get the day off on Saturday (switching shifts).

However, my girlfriend can't get off work on Saturday.

I'll know by Wednesday (or Thursday at the latest) if I'll be off work on Saturday.

If I'm off, I'd like to sign up for the Crokinole Tournament.

I'll be recruiting teams and helping to pair people up, who may not have a partner, on Friday. I'll also be teaching the game and helping folks get started in some practice rounds. You don't need to sign up beforehand if you're not sure on availability.

At least 2...possibly more. It think we can easily run the tourney with 2 boards. I'm still hoping for 32 teams to enter.
