Due to popular demand by the natives, I guess we'll call it ESPI VIII. It's not an invite, though. Plan is to let it serve as the qualifier should there be a North American Championship. Otherwise, just good old Eastside competition.

~~~Date for registration~~~
April 22th, 2016, 8:00 PM EST Link will be passed around.

~~~Venue~~~
Hockeytown USA
953 Broadway
Saugus, MA 01906

~~~Format~~~
Saturday:
5 Rounds of Swiss

Sunday:
Saturday seeding determines split into 4 groups.
Round robin group play.
Top 2 from each group into an 8 team single elimination bracket.

All players guaranteed 3 games on Sunday, with a potential for 4 games for everyone depending on registration totals.

~~~Rules~~~
NAH Ruleset: Read Me

~~~Other Stuff~~~
Boston club is going to be nice enough to try to organize a bit of housing.
Saugus isn't exactly in the city proper, you'll need to plan on having a car or a ride to the court.

Looking forward to playing with everyone.

Signed up

$100 team lol

Reminder that tournaments for other sports (hockey, for an example) often cost well over $100 per player

True, expect a kickstarter soon. ( I already blew the money I made from my recent mallet head sale).

Ooh. This takes me back to 2013. I sort of really want to repeat that. Just without a cold, no transatlantic flights, and no terror attacks.

What will be this year's #thinlyslicedgate?

Redraft

This will function as ESQ 2016 if there is a NAHBPC 2016, correct?

Out of nostalgia, can we rename it ESPI VIII? It's only been 4 years since we had an ESPI...

Combination of choice: Smash + Bang

X2. Would have to get the means on board since they have the challis.
