 Post subject: Clubs are Trump Tourney - Round 2
PostPosted: Sat Jan 15, 2005 3:01 am 

Round one is complete. The AOJ leads II Corps ANV 3-2 after a hard
fought contest over the past year. Barring any mistakes in
counting up the point totals, the following are the individuals who
will be advancing to the second round:

Group 1 Winners: Mark Oakford - 15 Garry Cope - 8
Group 2 Winners: Tim Goodwin - 2 Claes Melbro - 0
Group 3 Winners: Kirk Hutzel - 0 Rick Martin - 15
Group 4 Winners: John Merideth - 8 Gerald Jenson - 5
Group 5 Winners: Dermot Gavin - 9 Lucianno Bassotti - 13

Next Three Highest Point Totals:
Pete Eagle - 15 Dan Kurkimils - 15
Gary Hoover - 10 Roger Truitt - 13
Bart Kersteter - 5 Dave Moser - 5

Therefore, the following are the pairings for the second round
quarterfinal matches:

Mark Oakford - 15 vs Rick Martin - 15
Pete Eagle - 15 vs Dan Kurkimilis - 15
Gary Hoover - 10 vs Lucianno Bassotti - 13
Dermot Gavin - 9 vs Roger Truitt - 13
John Merideth - 8 vs Garry Cope - 8
Bart Kersteter - 5 vs Gerald Jenson - 5
Tim Goodwin - 2 vs Dave Moser - 5
Kirk Hutzel - 0 vs Claes Melbro - 0

I will have further information on Round 2 this weekend. If anyone
sees any mistakes in my calculations, please post ASAP! If you
are one of the players who advanced, please post here to acknowledge,
so that I know you are still with us!

Just to make sure that we all can find it again!

Is it possible that interest has been lost?

Nah...Couldn't be!

Yes sir, interest has defintiely been lost. I've had one officer
from each side in the Round 2 groups up and quit and I've still got
four no-shows that I'm trying to track down (not to mention that my
Reb counterpart left as well). Give me a little more time to try and
fill the holes and I promise that I'll get this thing going again.
In hindsight, we shouldn't have let the stragglers drag this one out.
A lesson learned for anyone who wants to run a tournament is to set
some very strict time guidelines as far as when battles should be
completed, and show no mercy in enforcing them.

I nearly have all of the holes filled and will put out a revised
bracket this week. In the mean time, let me tell you my thoughts
on how to run the second round. Experience with this tournament has
shown me that it is imposssible to get all participants to all play
the same scenario for a number of reasons, including the fact that
not every player owns all of the games! Therefore, I am leaning
towards allowing each pair of combatants to decide amongst themselves
which battle they will use to conduct their quarter-final match. I
will only implement the following restrictions on their choice: that
both combatants must be in agreement, that the battle is no longer
than a particular number of turns (TBD), they fight the battle as a
mirror match with only the "First Side" counting as their score (as
was done in Round One) - point totals will decide if both players
achieve the same victory category, and that all players adhere to a
very strict time schedule (which I should have implemented in Round
One). I welcome your thoughts now, and will put it to everyone for a
vote once I have all of the players lined up later this week. If a
majority disagree, I will attempt to come up with a single scenario
for all of us to play. Remember that the team competition ends after
round two. Each of these quaterfinal matches counts for one team
point so there are eight points up for grabs (with the AOJ leading
3-2). The semifinal and final matches will crown the tournament
champion but will not count towards the team competition. Again, I
apologize to all of you for letting this tournament wallow in
obscurity while the stragglers finished their battles and I want all
of you to know that I am commmitted and fully intend to see this
tournament through to its conclusion.

Very Respectfully,

Col Eagle

Here is a revised quarterfinal bracket for round two. I'm giving
II Corps, ANV an extended grace period through this weekend to
fill their hole with one of their officers who participated in
round one - Col Chris Cross is coordinating. Otherwise Lt Col
Gavin will advance to the semifinal round by forfeit. I am also
sending this information to all round two participants via e-mail
with more detailed instructions. Thanks for your patience gentlemen,
round two is fianlly getting under way!

V/R, Col Eagle

1. Oakford vs Martin
2. Eagle vs Kurkimilis
3. Peluso vs Bassotti
4. Gavin vs TBD
5. Merideth vs Moore
6. Corbin vs Jenson
7. Goodwin vs Moser
8. Lastowika vs Melbro
