Florida-potential "Super State" for 2018 SCS
« on: December 01, 2017, 08:22:41 AM »
Not sure if anybody realized this, but Florida is close to the IFPA Super State requirements for next year.

There are 2 parts:

1) 400 unique players (we had 396 so far)

2) 100 tourneys (we are in the 70s and there about 10 this month-with next year likely to,have more). 

If we meet that in 2018 that will allow us to expand to TOP 24 in SCS. How cool would that be for many more players to have a shot at the State Championship :)

Wow, I've never heard of that. Do you know what states are considered super states. I would guess PN, Ca, OR?

Right now, none.  It is a new idea for 2018.  At our current growth we could do this in 2018.

This would be awesome!

OK, Cafe One could have a tournament every day until the first day of spring.

To be clear: This new idea starts in 2018.  So they could run events all year in 2018 to help out the cause.
