    I am gaging the interest in having a NJ State EM Tournament. I am thinking about a Saturday in April.

    Let me know you thoughts and what you would like to see in the tournament.

    #2 3 years ago

    I think it would be cool. I'd like to see a bunch of EMs in the tournament.

    #3 3 years ago

    Yes, if time permits. Sunday's usually better.

    #4 3 years ago

    Ok we got two. But only one of it is on Saturday.

    #5 3 years ago

    Oh yeah.

    #6 3 years ago

    Just a bump to see if there is more interest Than two.

    #7 3 years ago

    Definitely interested depending on the format. saturday or Sunday doesn't matter.

    You really need to reach beyond pinside. For the most part this is not a player group - it's a collector group. Which means you'll find few em guys here and even fewer em competitive players here.

    I'd say call around / visit places where people play that host leagues and tournaments like 8 on the break or rock fantasy, and see if you can drum up interest. Unless you are having some kind of LED showcase or Mod party I wouldn't expect it to happen here.

    i will try to enter, saturdays are tough in the spring due to baseball with the kids. Would love to enter, though.

    #15 3 years ago

    I'll be in. I happily won the Sky Line tournament at the York show, although that was set up so you just had to get the super high score rather than compete against a new player each time and there was a category for the elevator too - I ended up winning both! (but only got recognized for the high score and replays to be fair)

    #16 3 years ago

    I would have been in , but that's in the middle of PAPA

    http://papa.org/competitions/papa-world-championships/papa-20-world-championships/

    That will keep a lot of people out, even Crazy Levi.

    #17 3 years ago

    After receiving a lot of feedback, the date of the tournament has been changed from April 8 to April 22, 2017!!!!

    #18 3 years ago

    I like it. April 22 puts me there.

    Quoted from Robotoes:

    Opening day little league, puts me out.

    #21 3 years ago

    Still probably in but who knows

    #22 3 years ago

    Myself and a buddy of mine might be in. We'll register once we know.

    Letting everyone know that the format is 3 strikes best 2 out of 3. We have a hard stop at 4:00pm. The limit for the tournament is now 32 to ensure we finished before 4:00.
