Civil War Beer Pong
Saturday, July 13, 2013 at 8:00 PM (CDT)
Civil War Beer Pong Tournament
In support of Autism Speaks to Young Professionals
How to play (as explained by beermeister):
"The game is played with nine cups on each side, split into 3 small pyramids, one beer for each pyramid. there are three people to a side and each one of them has a ball. When the game starts everyone starts to shoot at the opponents cups. In essence it is a complete free for all. the table area is considered a neutral area, and anyone from either side can compete for balls on, under, or to the left and right of the table. for example if someone leaves a ball in the water cup, then that ball is fair game for the other team. If one of your cups is hit, you can't throw or retrieve balls until you finish it. When all of your cups are hit you're out, and can no longer attempt to hit cups or retrieve balls. the first side to lose all of their players loses."
There will be 16 teams (yes, only 16, so sign up quickly!). We will have four tables of play. The first eight teams will take their marks at 8:00pm sharp. All games should be completed by 8:30, when the next eight teams will step up to test their luck. Once we have our eight qualifying teams, we will begin Round 2. By the end of the night we will have crowned our champions! prizes will be awarded
