    Cleaning up:

    With no Game Commissioner, no MC and no referees, I announce the following rules:

    1. Jungle rules.
    2. No 'spinning'.
    3. Just about every damn thing else is legal.
    4. If you want more rules - both teams must agree to them before each match up.

    I will have copies of the J ladder with me and will attempt to post one near the table.

    With that, I say,

    LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

    Teams can lose ONCE and still be in it....

    To become Champions, a team must win 5 games.

    So, a 5 and 1 record is still a winner. If you are the BYE team and win the final, you would be 5 and 0 - and UberChampions.

    It's not (quite) too late for team member changes... I may have time to update the roster and jladder tomorrow morning - but if you are gonna make changes - DO IT NOW.

    That'll cost your team one brisket sandwich and a coke. Sweet BBQ on the brisket, please.

    Friday and/or Saturday.

    This to all teams, not just Dane:

    Teams will need to coordinate with each other for tourney times. I could assign you all times, but there is no way I'm gonna be responsible for anyone missing something they have sharpied on their schedule not to miss.

    The best I can do is provide a sheet at/near the table with the J-ladder and spaces for the teams to list their availability. Teams who do not list availability will forfeit. If you can't meet up with an available team and are supposed to play them per the J ladder, you forfeit.

    Once teams list their availability, I may post game times on the J ladder, so check it often.

    I may be your Turd, but I ain't your mommy. Bragging rights for a full year are at stake.

    I was gonna suggest "The Unnamed", I somehow missed your last post. I suppose I've been called worse than Nancy before.
    I know I replied to you somewhere (I don't have any saved sent messages, so if it didn't go through, I didn't see that) - I liked the suggestion. Would have been cool. Ah well.

    My son throroughly abused me during training. That's why he won't be at Experience!

    The foosball action finally got going on Saturday afternoon. The participants largely ignored the J-ladder and took each other on jungle style.

    There was some member swapping in the teams lineup, but it didn't seem to have any real effect on the final outcome.

    The winning team made it through undefeated, making them the

    XPRS13 Foosball Throwdown UberChampions.


    I leave it for a member of the final loosing team to post a gracious congrats to the winners....
