The format we use for this tournament is different than any other KHPA tournament. We will pitch the first round of qualifying with mixed play with each player getting around 150 shoes in qualifying. From there we seed everyone based on ringer percentage into a handicapped bracket doing elimination style games until we have our tourrnament champion. Each pitcher should get at least 200 shoes with the tournament champion and runner-up winding up around 300 shoes by the time they get through the bracket.
This tournament is 100% payback as well, as it was last year. Meaning if we have 15 entries all $225 will be paid back to the pitchers at the tournament. I can't give concrete payouts until we know how many entried we're going to have but heres an example of the payouts with 15 entries:
1st Place - $80
2nd Place - $50
3rd Place - $35
4th Place - $30
5th Place - $20
6th Place - $10
These payouts will fluctuate based on number of pitchers.
Please keep in mind this is a sanctioned tournament and is handicapped so each player has a chance to at the bigger payouts. Another thing to note is that your handicap number will be based off your entry average not your qualifying average, this is the fairest way to do it.
Sign-up with me before October 3rd if you'd like to get in, you can also leave a message on the message board and I'll add you to the list.
Unless we exceed 26 entries everyone will pitch at the same time, most likely 11 a.m. central time to let it warm up a bit.
I look forward to seeing many of you in Chalybeate October 7th for a change of pace from the standard Kentucky tournaments!
