Quoted from desertT1:
Are weeklies/bi-weeklies considered a tournament or a league when it comes to submiting them ahead of time? Whopper Wednesdays in BC can be the example here. They don't have recent events, so I can really investigate on the IFPA calendar.
I just got word that a local place is willing to let me and another player help maintain their few pins so that we can bring in a few small events a month. If it's one a month, I can see that being addeda head of time, but if it's a regular thing (like 2nd and 4th Wednesday), it seems like it might fall in between a league and a monthly. It won't be a set roster. Whoever shows up, will play.
Just looking for advise how to do things properly.
Quoted from ifpapinball:
If you have to join something ahead of time and it requires mandatory attendance to multiple events, we would consider that a league.
If results are being submitted based on the activity from that evening, and anyone can show up at the it leisure week to week or month to month, then we consider those tournaments.
Your example sounds like a typical weekly or monthly tournament which would have to be on the calendar ahead of time to be endorsed.
After reading Bob's latest post on IFPA breaking down different events and how they grade out, I think I forgot a detail in my last question. In single elimination, does it matter if it's one game or best of 3?
8 player, single elim, single game, longest path is 3.
8 player, single elim, best of 3, longest path is 9.
So it could be either 12% or 36% depending on the number of best-of, right?
