100% payback plus $100 kick-in split across BYP and DYP.
$10 entry for both BYP and DYP;
for Singles Triathlon, and in all events for beginners, ladies, those with beginner partners in BYP (fooz guru discount), and those that go 0-2 in the BYP.
Singles Triathlon will be no-conflict with the BYP at the time of sign-ups (ie. an event meant for those eliminated early in the BYP and for latecomers looking to warm up for the draw). Expect single elimination if 8 or more players sign up.
The DYP will be split into an early and late bracket to prevent conflicts with the BYP if there are more than 20 entrants.
If you cannot make it by 4:45 for the bring, but can make it by 5:30 pm, contact Skip to let him know you're coming and you can still enter the bring. (Txt by 7:30 to get entered in the draw if running late).
NorCal DYP: My name for the standard draw format I used to play in San Francisco with three notable features:
(a) a Hi/Lo draw*
(b) forced Roto in the second game only
(c) win by 2 in the third game (ceiling of 8).
*To encourage a competitive field/parity, the entrants will be divided by skill into two fields, such that the 'Hi' players will randomly draw 'Lo' players. Ranking will be at TD discretion (with any player ever officially ranked a Pro default starting on the Hi-side).
Singles Triathlon: An event involving three singles formats, ITSF singles, Forward Shoot-Out, and Goalie Wars.
Matches are best 2/3 in which the winner of the coin-toss chooses between drop+side or the format of the first game (Singles, FSO, or GW). For the second game, the loser of the first game picks between the two remaining unplayed formats, and the final format must be played if the match goes to a third deciding game. Thus all formats are used in a 3-game match and no format can be played more than once per match.
