Here is some more information on these events:

These events are endorsed by the IFPA, so IFPA boints will be awarded for them. I am running the Wednesday night events and Aaron is running the Thursday night events.

The IFPA has specified the following prizes for the events:

    1st place - Trophy and 40% of the cash pot
    2nd place - 30% of the cash pot
    3rd place - 20% of the cash pot
    4th place - 10% of the cash pot
    5th through 8th place - $10

I note that in order for 4th place to receive at least $10, at least 28 people need to participate. I reserve the right to change the prize structure for the events I'm running if fewer than 28 people show up.

I'm assuming Ifpa boints are split up between the 4 or is it full boints for each event

I'm not sure how the boints will be awarded. I have sent an email to the IFPA asking them to clarify how the boints will be awarded and I will post here when I hear back.

This is the response I got from the IFPA:

The boints will be shared amongst all the Portland launch parties over the calendar year.

With the 4 being held for Transformers, this will make 6 total.

I wonder if they're going to give away a translite at any of them?

Are each of these independent tourneys, or is an aggregation of all four (4)?

Each are their own tourneys. There's a possibility of four winners.

Ignore all those dates. Next Thursday at Club 21 is the only one that matters. There isn't even one tonight. It's tomorrow, or something. It's all fucked.

The email I initially received from the IFPA indicated that they are shipping out trophies "along with some other goodies". However, they did not elaborate on what those other goodies might be. I am not aware of any prizes to be awarded other than what I previously discussed.

Yeah, like I said, the dates were all messed up. So if anyone wants to run the apex thing go right ahead. I won't be there to do it.

Next thursday at Club 21 however, I will be at with Logan running it. The way it's always been and should be.

Why are there so many freaking release parties? Is it Stern trying to get every single operator who buys one to throw a release party?

This isn't a problem with tungsten bulbs because the filament remains red hot for a short duration after voltage is removed - long enough to appear lit persistently.
