100% payback** plus $50 kick-in from vendor split across the two main events.
$11** entry for BYP $10 entry for the DYP $6 BYP entry for -beginners, -female foosers, -those with beginner partners, (foos guru discount) (Beginner status at TD discretion), $5 entry for the DYP for those that go 0-2 in the bring.
-BYP matches will be given priority when the events are running concurrently - As Jimmy's closes at 1 am, I want to ensure we finish by 1 am, so shortened formats/race to 8 in the loser's bracket could occur in the DYP as needed based on turnout and timing. Also, if we have more than twenty entrants, we will split the DYP into two brackets (early and late) to minimize conflicts with the bring .
$1 of each entry fee goes to new balls/parts.
Follow-up Format: The Rondo DYP
Named by Minneapolis foosers, Deb G and EB, the Rondo was a mispronunciation of 'Roto' that went on to name the rotating format where players switch positions when they are scored upon. This is a forced rotation with no other switches allowed. The rotation continues across games within a match.
If you never have to switch in a game (you won 5-0) you 'rondoed' the other team. To win a whole match without switching is deemed the uber-rare, Mondo Rondo.
