They’ve let me out of my cage in the back to give you a little update of all the going-ons around here as we gear up for PAPA13.
We’ve got all our scorekeepers and desk workers lined up. You may see a change in how we assign machines in B and C division: we’re going with the Classics Method of Free Will, where you choose what game you play next. There will be two scorekeepers in each of those during the busy hours. There are BIG changes at the front desk, but they’re secret, and Dave will beat me if I tell you(he knows where it hurts).
I think Iron Man is evil.
This year’s new tokens came in, and have been mixed in with the standards. We’ve got some snazzy new vending machines for soda and candy. Wifi’s been amped up, but don’t be a hog when you get here.
There are new computers and kiosks for you to check your scores and mail on. I’m rather proud of those. There’s a big surprise waiting in A division, which I had nothing to do with.
Name badges this year come on lanyards to wear around your neck. You will be required to wear it at all times when buying anything or playing in the tournament. If you lose or forget it there’s a fee, which will hopefully allow me to buy a bigger cage and maybe some padding. Also, beer.
My, those are some nice share buttons on this here blog. I wonder who spent so much time hacking up WordPress…
Shirts and posters and merch are starting to arrive. Machines are in their banks and ready to be played. Trophies are in. The bathrooms are clean! We’re working on tracking a few more things in the city of Pittsburgh down. Self promotion all around town with the awesome fliers for this year. Nearly there.
This is all the doing. There was a lot of thinking involved, and my brain hurts. And my back, because the cage they keep me in is not comfortable.
