THU 12/8 (8:30PM) — Sorry again for the delay. Scroll down to see the final schedule. I have put 7p BCRC Purefoods vs Winner of Problems/BCL as a placeholder. Not sure that will happen, as I need to check with all the teams involved in that. Luckily it’s the last game of the set, so can be “amputated” if needed.
Dream asked for a bye and Kryptonite accepted, so they will resume with their one-and-done on 12/18. The only other issue for this Sun 12/11 is that Stun vs P2W is 1 hour earlier than their usual timeframe of 2p+, but that just really can’t be avoided if you look at the games that need to be scheduled and the timeframes involved. At least this affects both teams equally.
Again, if you are in the Losers Bracket, you should be thankful that Dream League has a double-elimination format because in any other league, you’d be out and wouldn’t even have a game. Finally, we have a 20-minute break in between games in SJ due to the back-to-back (I never like to have a team play immediately following the buzzer of their previous game). In my experience, a 30-minute rest is too long, so 20 minutes is more realistic (could even be 15 minutes, you’ll see when you’re there), and most importantly it’s easier to digest as far as the gym director is concerned (I try to convince them that we shouldn’t pay for dead time).
Other than these two issues, everyone should be in their timeframe. I have listed the special requests.
THU 12/8 (3:15PM) — Forgot to mention, I’ll continue on posting brackets, as you’ve seen with the other posts I’ve made (see homepage for Bay Area by clicking the blue banner above) and scrolling down to the list of articles… (3:00PM) — Below is the first draft, in chronological order. You can see that the 6FT Bay Area championship series of games is going to be held at ISAH in SF. For the AAA, there is a possibility we could add Purefoods vs the winner of Problems/BCL to the end of ISAH (with a break in between or something), or merely postpone it, although BCL would be unavailable on 12/18. Also, SJ Hibachi AAA is already playing two games in 6FT, so it’s too much for them as far as 12/11 is concerned.
Here are the probable start times: ISAH midday, BCRC early afternoon, PHHS mid-evening with that 20-minute break in between. I should be able to finalize these times — and I don’t expect things to change much — by this evening at 7pm. I’m still trying to make sure we don’t overlap and have adequate scorekeeping staff. Thanks for your ongoing patience.
THU 12/8 (1:00PM) — Oops, I forgot about the complications brought upon by the 6FT Bay Area (as opposed to regional) championships. I need some time to double-check with captains. More info coming at 2pm… (10:45AM) — The schedule for this Sun 12/11 will post by 2pm today. Sorry for the delay.
