Win a Nintendo Switch - May 31
#1
On Friday May 31 OFA will be holding a doubles foosball tournament where first prize will be a Nintendo Switch. This will be the 8th one of these tournaments (Wiis and PS3s). Here are the details:

When: Friday May 31. 8:00pm Registration, 8:30 Start
What: Doubles Foosball Tournament, double elimination format
Where: Tail Gators, 1642 Merivale Road, Ottawa, Ontario, K2G 4A1
Who: Beginner players only!! No pros allowed. (see below)
How Much: $10/Person. Free for Women.
Prizes:
* 1st - Nintendo Switch
* 2nd - 70% of any surplus entry fees
* 3rd - 30% of any surplus entry fees
* 50% off league fees for all participants who want to join the league!

So this is how it works. Show up at Tail Gators on Friday night at 8:00 and find the foosball tables. Register you and your partner and pay your entrance fee.

At 8:30 we will start the tournament. We use a double elimination format which means you need to lose 2 matches before you are eliminated. Each match is a best two out of three with games going to 5 goals. It costs $1/game (9 balls). If you go all the way to the end you'll probably need 5 loonies. The winning team will get the Nintendo Switch. The second place team will get 70% of any extra entrance fees above the cost of the Switch, 3rd place gets 30%. All entrants get 50% off coupon for any OFA league.

Who can play? We are limiting this to new/beginner players. No pros are allowed. All of the pros know who they are (regular league players) so if you have to ask, your not a pro.

If you have any questions or comments give me a call/text/email.

I have a co-worker coming. Is there a team with just 1 player?

Hey Dee.

We will take care of your coworker. I don’t have any other singles at the moment. Worst case is we will let someone play twice and get them a partner.

These things are hard to gauge. I didn’t set up pre-registration so I don’t have any hard numbers. From the interest I’ve seen so far it looks pretty good.

I’ll try and be there for 7:30.

Here is the plan for tonight. I’ll get there around 7:30 to set up.
1) check the tables
2) get the loonie bin ready
3) put up some posters and the big chart
Registration starts at 8:00 and will close at 8:30.
I’ll run the matches on my laptop kicker tool and transfer to the big chart.

Got to say Friday night foos and the Switch Tourney was a blast. Chris is the best promoter in Canada by far and it appeared that the newbies really enjoyed themselves. I am sure we will get a few out of this effort. Congrats to Chris and his junior sidekick JP on a well run tourney . Ottawa foosers are the best of people and thanks to all of you for attending and helping the newbies.
