Jacksonville $500

Foosball forum for Jacksonville, Orange Park, and surrounding areas.

Postby hughsfoos on Fri Jun 03, 2011 5:40 pm

The Double Event Saturday for May was a success, and now it's time to get ready for June and beyond.

The next few opportunities at a $500 payout on two events will be:

June= 6-25-11/CANCELED
July= 7-23-11
August= 8-27-11

The first event will be a DYP at 6 pm. The base entry fee is $5 per person.

The second event will be a BYP at 8 pm. The base entry fee is $10 per person.

There will be a $1 table maintenance fee for one or both events.

Local players will have to pay a $1 Player's Association fee.

Sign ups will begin 30 minutes prior to start times, and end 10 minutes prior to the posted start.

We paid out $510 for the May edition, and hope to bring that number up for this month and the following months.

With 10 teams paying full entry fees in both events, these events should pay out a total of $550.

If there are low-rated players looking for partners, but not signed up, we will allow them to enter together at half-priced entry IF it will get us to 10 teams in the BYP.
Please keep in mind that this WILL affect the payout slightly.

If you plan to attend, please respond to this subject thread so players on the fence will get motivated to come out!

Don't forget, if you only make it to one Saturday a month in Jacksonville, make sure it's for the Double Event Saturday.

The July edition will be on the 23rd.

The June edition of J-ville's Double Event Saturdays is coming up fast, and I'm wondering what's up with the Orlando and Tampa players. :?:

Ray M. and Greg F. have shown they aren't afraid, they played well and showed they are serious contenders with a solid chance of winning any event. 8)

Al E. and Jim R. have also shown that they are consistent competitors. 8)

I'm just wondering about the rest of the players from Tampa and Orlando. :?:

So,


WHO THINKS THEY CAN COME TO JACKSONVILLE AND TAKE OUR MONEY HOME? :twisted:


The first event starts at 6pm, but if Tampa/Orlando players give me enough notice, and plan to bring enough players, I can move the start times earlier! :!:

Due to a large private party at our normal location, we are forced to cancel the Jacksonville $500 for June. They are expecting a party of approximately 300 people, which means we won't be able to hold an event of any size that night.

I guess Rob's not the only Florida promoter who has to schedule around special events at his location.

To make the July 23rd edition a bit more enticing, we'll have a $25 bonus for the highest placing team, NOT in the BYP money, that has to drive an hour or more to get to UBC. If all teams traveling an hour or more make the money in the BYP, the $25 bonus will roll over to August.

Hey Hugh. Me and Rob would love to try to make it to one of these and bring some others. You think that you could start them earlier in the day. Thx

Matt,

Thanks bro.

If a few more Tampa, Orlando or South Florida players give me notice that they're coming, I can move everything for July 23rd up an hour or two.

We're currently set to start the DYP at 6pm and the BYP at 8. The more players I get posting their intent to come, the earlier I can move it up.

We can also get Chris' table in, with a little notice. That would give us four, and starting at 4 or 5 would make it easy to get through 10-15 teams in each event.

OK, I'm still waiting to hear from Orlando, Tampa (except for Matt and Rob) and South Florida players who want to come to the Double Event Saturday July 23rd.

If I get commitments from 4 traveling teams, I can justify moving start times to 4pm and 6pm AND add a Last Chance DYP for players not still in the BYP.

We can probably get an extra table in with a week's notice, but rescheduling start times means I need to give two weeks notice to give everyone time to get the word.

Don't forget, there's a $25 bonus available for the highest-placing traveling team in the BYP to NOT finish in the money.

Thanks Ray.

That makes one visiting team for sure, and 1-2 maybe's.

We just need a few more solid commitments and I can lock in the 4pm start!

OK foosers, we've got a solid date, location, add-in AND a $25 BONUS** for the best visiting team to NOT make the regular payouts in the BYP.**=this bonus has been dropped, see later posts below for other bonuses.

I'm prepared to get the events started earlier, IF we get a few more SOLID commitments. A 5 pm start and an extra table can be part of the plans, I just need YOUR help to justify the earlier start and the work required. If we do move the start time up, I will add a "No Conflicts DYP" after the BYP.

Please respond here if you plan to play in Jacksonville on July 23rd.

I'll be there w/ Rory. Hope some of the folks from south of us make the trip. Even though they have no shot at winning at least they are eligible for the $25 Bonus. :mrgreen:

Come on Chris! You know that one or two visiting teams MIGHT finish as high as 2nd or 3rd in the BYP! :mrgreen:

Not only that, but it will be the beginning of our Fall Points Race.
And there's a bonus! Both events (DYP and BYP) will earn DOUBLE POINTS in the Points Race! In fact, all three "Double Event Saturdays" during the Points Race will earn double points! That means you can get credit for four events in the Race, with the commitment of just one day!

There's even a SECOND BONUS! All players entered into Both the DYP and BYP will be entered into a drawing for TWO TICKETS to Jacksonville's preseason game against St. Louis on September 1st!

On the flip side, with all the money we're adding to the Points Race Wrap-up Tourney, we've had to remove the $25 bonus for traveling players NOT making the regular payouts.

Actually, with the points race kicking in, the $25 bonus has been dropped. :(

There are plenty of other cool bonuses, though.

We're having a drawing for preseason Jags tickets this Saturday, and we're having a drawing for a GREAT golf package NEXT Saturday! :D

For any players planning to play the $500 in J-ville, if you're worried about what time we'll be done so you can start the drive home, please keep in mind that our DYP starts at 6pm, and the BYP starts at 8pm.

We are currently running our regularly scheduled events on three T-3000's.

Also, we are prepared to react accordingly if we start seeing significantly larger turnouts. Earlier start times, an extra table, and stricter recall procedures are only a step away if we have ANY issues with getting done early enough!
