Is anybody watching you?
In the next couple of weeks, Jim Koehl and I are going to start a four-week Theme Park Apprentice round. I don't think this is going to count as a regular numbered session, but more as a play-in for a Tournament of Champions.
Jim thinks this should only be open to people who have finished in the top 3 in any previous tournament but not won. While I'm good with that in principle, I also think that a shortened schedule of 4 weeks including the final might make it easier for people to participate...and doing the tournament when people are not trying to massively increase their coaster count may help participation as well.
So, let's put it this way, if you were in the final three of any TPA and didn't win, you are in, just reply below saying that you want to play.
But, since we have 12 slots open, any slot that is not claimed is either going to stay open or, if enough people are interested, we could do an open play-in round to fill up the last slots. You let us know.
With a 4-week session (not including a possible play-in round), everyone will play the first 3 rounds and the top three scores will compete in the final. We are going to score things like school grades this time so the difference between first and last on a scale of 100 might only be a couple of points instead of the sequential rating system that destroyed someone who got off to a slow start.
We are looking at starting around February 19th with the first challenge due on February 25th. This will then be followed a short time later by TPA Tournament of Champions vol 2 (Electric Boogaloo).
We are going to do an "official" announcement soon, so stay tuned.
Also, if someone is really interested (and qualified) to be a judge, let us know. We have three judges lined up, but I'm willing to entertain options as well.
So far now.....shhhhhh.....its a secret....Tweet
