Registration Status is now up on IFPA website for upcoming Louisiana State Pinball Championship (and other states and Canada).
Player status can still possibly change in the next few days, but this is how it is as of now.
Players can figure out who their first round match is likely to be against based on the seeding/commitments shown.
1-vs-16, 2-vs-15, 3-vs-14, 4-vs-13, 5-vs-12, 6-vs-11, 7-vs-10, 8-vs-9.
As of now, Chris S. is the last player in the field of 16 for the IFPA 2017-2018 LA State Pinball Championship.
Wendell is the 1st alternate on standby that has committed to attend, and Kristine is 2nd alternate. Alternates who attend the tournament will make the field of 16 if some higher seeded players can't attend due to unforeseen circumstances that arise before start of tournament (work, family, health, bad weather, dangerous driving conditions, etc.).
Please note that when I sent in my email to IFPA listing players status, I had several more for players further down in the list after Kristine in 22nd spot. I guess when IFPA people were entering all the data, they were in a massive time crunch to just get the more critical data entered for all the states and Canada provinces, so they just entered data in some states till they got at least the main field set and some alternates, or they did not scroll down far enough to see that I had a page 2 in my document.
So, even if the status by your name shows as Unknown, I already have commitments to attend from:
Josh L., Jude H., Mike P. (if a place in the field of 16 opens up for him), Kelsey N., Raynna D., Jamie B., and Elizabeth D.).
Congrats to all who qualified for the upcoming Louisiana state championship, and to those who qualified for Texas, Arkansas, and other states.
