Stopped by to wish Buck all the best with the first of hopefully many POP's events, nice lineup of games, sadly couldnt stop too long after a day of driving, hauling etc, and got another day tomorrow heading down to Ft Lauderdale, and to attend another event (FLIPS)

2 events, 1 weekend, all good fun  ;D

Danny,  there's a lot of.... Well badness in the world today. I see it in the court everyday. I've sentenced boys younger than you to the gas chamber.... didn't want to do it.... felt I owed it to them.

Good times indeed! Thanks for your hospitality! Was very nice to pinball it up with friends old and new!

The format was simple. Single elimination. Nine players were divided into groups of three. Each group played a game on AC/DC and the lowest scoring player gets knocked out. Then the action moved on to Getaway. Final round was a four player game on Transformers.

Next event will be at my house in May!

OK.  Got the format.  How was grouping and order of play decided? All random?

(For the record, not that it concerns me specifically, but I understand you guys want to eventually move toward more serious tourney play and such details will matter to the players :)  )
