Exciting News! This year we have added a “Loser’s Bracket.” If your team loses in the first round, you will drop down to the Loser’s Bracket. A loss in the Loser’s Bracket eliminates you from the tournament. Any loss after the 1st round in the tournament eliminates you from the tournament.
WHAT IS MEGA SNOW PONG??
Mega Snow Pong is a game based on the commonly known game of Beer Pong. 6 garbage cans are placed on each side of a court in a triangle formation (as in setting up a shuffleboard game). The “head” garbage cans are at 15’ apart. Team members throw balls into the opposite set of garbage cans. A ball landing in a garbage can results in the removal of that can. The object is to remove all of the cans on the opposing side of the pong court.
HOW IS IT PLAYED?
Teams are made of 2 (player 1 and 2) players. Rounds of play run as follows:
Team A player 1 throws 3 balls.
Team B player 1 throws 3 balls.
Team A player 2 throws 3 balls.
Team B player 2 throws 3 balls.
Team B player 1 throws 3 balls
Team A player 1 throws 3 balls
Team B player 2 throws 3 balls
Team A player 2 throws 3 balls
And so on until one side has no cans on it, at which point the other side will have won.
HOW DO WINNERS ADVANCE?
Each team will be set up on a bracket and winners will advance (Think Final Four Bracketology here folks.)
WHERE DO WE PLAY?
Mega Snow Pong Courts will be located in front of The Okoboji Store.
Loser’s Bracket courts will be located on the basketball court beside The Okoboji Store.
WHEN AND WHICH COURT AM I ON?
You will receive your assigned court and time, or position on the bracket at sign-in which opens at 8am Saturday at the Okoboji Store. It will be necessary for you to be signed in and in the court area 1 match BEFORE your match. Any no-shows for matches will result in forfeiture.
Main Brackets and Loser’s Brackets will be posted at the Stage by the courts. They will be updated live a play progresses.
HOW DOES THE LOSER’S BRACKET WORK?
If you lose during the 1st round of normal tournament, you will be moved onto the Loser’s Bracket. Winner’s will advance. Once you lose a game, you are eliminated from the whole tournament.
