    Quoted from LOTR_breath:

    I also overheard the announcement at SFGE. But, I didn't hear the details. I will say it is huge and it involves Pinburgh. And remember, Pinburgh next year is July 30th - Aug.2nd, not in March as it has been. Better go ahead and plan your vacation around this event!

    I wasn't trying to announce the announcement. It was pretty much a joke. Many people do not look at papa.org often enough to notice that the text Major Announcement has been there for quite some time.

    And yes, the next Pinburgh will be held at the end of July 2015.

    Quoted from StevenP:

    I'm officially in the signup line for Pinburgh 2015! Bowen, you're my witness!!

    Huh? It's already sold out.

    Quoted from Chet:

    Is the PAPA facility considered to be in 100-year flood zone? The Old (1995 FEMA Flood mapping) shows the facility outside the 100 year flood inundation (1 percent chance annually) zone of Chartiers creek, but that mapping and FIS Study was done 10-15 years before the 2004 Ivan event. I know sedimentation and debris was removed from the Chartiers channel and along that reach of stream in 2008-2009, but unless periodically maintained that comes back, especially after floods. Dredging and debris removal will lower future flood crests but in itself is usually not enough to completely eliminate overbank flooding during large flood events like the 100-year flood. Perhaps Mark or Bowen would care to respond?

    Quoted from Skulz:

    Cool announcement. Any other details on what the other tournament is all about for 3 entries for $10 I think it is?
    Now that we are only about 6 weeks away from Papa17, can someone in the know post up where they think pre-papa tournaments will be so that some of us can make travel plans and accommodations?

    The other tournament is the world championship of classic video games, called the Replay World Championship.

    Quoted from soren:

    I am a bit puzzled as to why the previous Pinburgh have had a rule that payed the group with the highest seeded player the privilledge to pick the play order of games within a bank. I mean both (all) groups sharing a bank have to play all games anyway.
    The arrangement for 2015 as described here where play order is dictated to minimise waiting and delay for all players high or low makes much better sense to me.

    There was no such rule at Pinburgh 2014. The only place such a rule applies is during final rounds, where the player with the highest seed is rewarded with the choice of bank selection; the order of the machine play is not under any player's control.

    Those rules will not be changing for Pinburgh 2015.
