Thanks to Andrew for hosting the last league night of the season! Final scores are up here. Surprising nobody, Adam managed to take the season champ spot with a 10 point lead over Jack, and a 14 point lead over Barry. He also managed to maintain over 80% on the season, which is a very solid average. It also explains why he’s sitting in the lead when you include the handicap in the calculation, which was never intended to be impossible, just more difficult. We’ve decided to add a new rule however, saying that you can’t win both trophies, so the Pinball Wizard trophy goes to Chris Draper, who was only 3 points behind Adam in this race! Both Adam and Chris earn a replay into next season.
On the Most Improved front, Andrew made a late season push for the trophy, but in the end couldn’t pass Chris Frolic, who takes it with a 12% improvement. He also wins a replay into next season.
A reminder that playoffs are this Sunday at Jim’s place. The format will be the same match play format we used in the summer, and based on feedback, we’re going to use the same divisional split we used there. The format will be:
- Rounds 1-7: Everyone plays everyone else
- Rounds 8-17: A division players keep going, B division splits off to a separate tournament (with records reset)
- 4 game final for the top 4 in A and B
The usual rules for division eligibility and minimums apply. We need a minimum of 8 to run B, so as long as we have 16 or more players, we’ll split divisions roughly 50/50.
Also, a reminder that we’re going to be doing the end of the year draw on Sunday, including the grand prize of a pinball machine! You’ll have an entry in the drum for each week you were out, and there are some other prizes besides the big one. You don’t need to be present to win, but it’d be much better if you were, so come on out, and have a good time at playoffs. Even if you haven’t been out this season at all, it’s an open tournament.
See everyone on Sunday!
