***The Andyson Memorial Matchplay 2017***
THIS THE SAME EMBEDDED BRACKET AS THE MATCH PLAY BRACKET . IT MAY ONLY BE USEFUL TO JOHN AND MYSELF . SINCE WE ARE THE ONLY ONES IN IT .
BTW . THE CHAT BOX IS STILL OPEN ON THIS PAGE . THE SAME AS IT ALWAYS WAS BEFORE . THE SAME AS IT IS ON THE MAIN PAGE .
EMBEDDED BRACKETS
These were our embedded brackets . http://challonge.com/ is a sports bracket site . That provides various ladder brackets for all types of tournament play . Live brackets that I embedded right here in this portal page of our website .

Back in 2015 . I hosted more than 20 of these multiplayer tournaments . The brackets are embeddable and played live . Like the one below .

The participants would meet in the chat ( below the bracket ) .

View their opponents .In the first round of the bracket

Play the match in WGT with the invite system .

Come back to the chat . Record the score .

Watch the bracket turn to the next round , see their opponent , play the match come back to the chat , record the score
And so on until the final round .

A Supreme Champion would be named .

Below the chat is an excerpt from the many details of the protocol needed to play these events .

Full attention cooperation , patience and a love for the game . Were the most important components . But the many many details proved to be more than many could understand .
Very difficult event to pull off . When they went well . They were extremely fun .
Personally I miss those days .

CHALLONGE AND EMBEDDED BRACKET INFO
HOW TO PLAY IN CHALLONGE
SINCE I MADE THIS PAGE . OVER A YEAR AGO . I HAVE REVISED AND MADE EASIER SOME OF THE PROTOCOL . THE BASICS ARE STILL NEED TO KNOW


THE GUIDELINES ON THIS PAGE ARE GENERAL PROTOCOL AND NOT WRITTEN IN STONE . THEY ARE GOOD TO KNOW . THE STAFF OF VOTSCC KICK ASS TOURS RESERVE THE RIGHT TO AMEND ANY AND AL RULES TO COMPLY WITH OUR PROTOCOL


THE DATE OF THE TOURNAMENT AND THE PLAYTIME .

Are set prior to the invites being sent out .

The days leading up to event should be used as a time to get familiar with the event .
There are various posts with information in .

JUNE28 RATTLESNAKE ALT SHOT
AND

FORUM FOR PAGE 3 & SAT & SUN BRACKETS & TOURNEY INFO HERE
Page 3

THE BELOW DESCRIPTION IS THE BASIC PROCEDURE FOR THESE CHALLONGE EVENTS .
EACH EVENT IS DIFFERENT AND I WILL POST SPECIFIC DETAILS THAT WILL MAKE IT EASIER BY SKIPPING A COUPLE STEPS .

Two different locations require check in pre match .
The first is challonge . One needs to physically log in to the challonge bracket for that day and click the check inbutton . If that has not been done by the start of the match , and not before 60 minutes prior . When the match begins the AUTOMATED bracket will automatically remove you.. I will also try to help everyone that is present be checked in so that present participants do not get removed at start time .

Genarally I will be certain of whatever individuals will not be entering before the start time and manually remove them myself and rearrange the match ups .

The second location required for physical check in is our website chat room .. It is essential that each match up , meet and agree on who sets and invites and who waits in the lobby for the invite .

Especially important for the two participants to communicate with eack other .


Once the final matchups are made right at Tee Time . ( any match ups prior to tee time are only sample and temporary , the final matchups will be made at tee time . I will announce this and begin the tournament .


Now I have established the importance of the two check in spots .


The other reason that this chat is so efficient is that the brackets are embedded in our web Page 3 with the chat right in between them . You can view the live bracket from the chat . While the tournament is running from start to finish . It is running in real time . That speeds things up a bit to be able to see who your next matchup is right there in front of you and immediately be able communicate set and invite . Instead of having to wait for the host to come back to the chat and type in all of the match ups one at a time . Or each participant leaving the chat and having to go to the challonge bracket page and view the matchups and return to the chat .

GAME PLAY
Played in WGT with the usual invite system .


You will see your opponent in the bracket . Once I have started the match . It is then that the two of you acknowledge each other and determine which of you invites and sets the match while the other waits in the WGT Lobby . You then play your round and record your score in the bracket .


The first player listed in the group of (2) is responsible for setting the game. The winning team or player is responsible for reporting the score. This can be changed by the players if agreed on together .

2 points for a win , 1 point for a tie , -1 for a loss .

Once all the scores are submitted for the round the next round will automatically generate and the next match ups will be shown . And so on until the finals . The last two losers will play in a third place bronze match .
After the finals and the bronze match are completed . A Champion , a 2nd place , a third place and a fourth and fifth place will be shown on the bracket final results .

There is other stuff that you all need to know during the process of making the tournament and during the play .

AS I SET UP THE MATCH

As I move players around , removing them and replacing them to make the match ups . YouMAY receive an e-mail stating that you have been removed from the tournament (IGNORE THIS). DO NOT SIGN UP AGAIN! Challonge only thinks you wee removed as I shuffled people around . YOU HAVE NOT BEEN REMOVED . Just moved and replaced .


BREAKS


BREAKS: A maximum of 10 minutes is allowed for a break period in between rounds. The break period starts after the teams moving into the next round has been established. The break period is negotiable between the participating teams, NOT to exceed the 10 minute time limit.

The time between rounds , one must be patient , players may leave only if you absolutely will return .


[size=17][size=12]DISCONNECTS: If a disconnect occurs during the game and the game can be re-established within WGT time constraints, continue on with the match. If a disconnect occurs and game
CANNOT be re-established,
[/size]IN TEAM PLAY ONLY .[size=12]WGT rules apply and the team that cannot reconnect is forfeited. The other team wins, no matter what the score is. We are required to use WGT rules.[/size]


VERY IMPORTANT . THE ABOVE SENTENCE DOES NOT APPLY IN OUR EVENTS . PLEASE READ BELOW .


We are not required to use WGT rules . We reserve the right to score the match as the players felt the match went . Even if the match was given to player A in WGT and final . If the two opponents report to me that that was not the case and player B actually had a 1 point lead and a disconnect or something occurred that finished the match . We will then score the match to player B for the purposes of fairly finishing our tournament . This has happened on a couple of occasions .


May the SUN always be with you




ONCE YOU RECEIVE AN INVITE FOR EITHER SAT or SUN THERE ARE STILL A COUPLE THINGS TO DO . IF YOU PLAN ON PLAYING THEN PLEASE ACCEPT THE INVITE .

I THINK ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CHECK IN TO CHALLONGE AND CLICK YOUR NAME . THE SOONER THE BETTER .

THEN AGAIN BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT ( the day of ) YOU GO TO CHALLONGE TO CHECK IN AND VERIFY THAT YOU HAVE ENTERED FOR SURE .

ONCE EVERYONE HAS DONE THAT . I CAN START THE TOURNAMENT .


BUT NOT BEFORE EVERYONE MEETS IN THE CHAT ROOM ON THIS SITE . i GUESS EVERYONE DOESN'T KNOW THAT THAT IS HOW MULTI PLAYER BRACKETS WORK . EVERYONE PARTICIPATING MUST PHSYSICALLY MEET AT THE SAME TIME TO CONFER AND DECIDE AND ARRANGE ALL OF THE DETAILS OF EVERYTHING THAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN . aLL OF THESE TOURNAMENTS HAVE A CHAT ROOM FOR COMMUNICATING BETWEEN THE OPPONENTS THROUGHOUT THE TOURNAMENT .


STARTING WITH THE PRE MATCH CHECK IN .


E1 WHO IS ENTERED MEETS BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT STARTS .
iT IS THEN THAT I KNOW WHO IS GOING TO PLAY . \


AT THAT POINT I MUST GO TO THE ADMIN PAGE OF THE TOURNAMENT AND REMOVE ALL THE NO SHOWS . THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT HAVN'T CHECKED INTO THE CHAT . CHECKING INTO CHALLONGE IS NOT ENOUGH . WITH OUT BEING IN THE CHAT YOU WOULD HAVE NO WAY TO TALK TO YOUR OPPONENT AND DECIDE WHO SETS AND INVITES WHILE THE OTHER WAITS IN THE WGT LOBBY TO SEE THE GREEN INVITE . ALL THE WHILE KEEPING IN CONTACT WITH THE OPPONENT BECAUSE OF THE RECENT WGT INVISIBLE INVITE LATELY .
NONE OF THAT WILL BE POSSIBLE UNTIL I MAKE THE FINAL MATCHUPS AND START THE TOURNAMENT .


THEN ALL THE MATCH UPS CAN SEE WHO THEY ARE . cOMMUNICATE AND AGREE ON WHO SETS AND INVITES .
PLAY THEIR MATCH . RETURN TO THE CHAT , RECORD THEIR SCORES AND WAIT UNTIL ALL THE OTHER MATCHES ARE DONE AND RECORDED .
THE NEXT ROUND IS THEN GENERATED . THE WINNERS FROM THE FIRST ROUND PLAY AGAINST EACH OTHER


THE LOSERS EITHER PLAY IN ANOTHER BRACKET (DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF THE FIELD) OR PLAY IN THE BRONZE BRACKET FOR THIRD PLACE .
THE WINNERS CONTINUE TO PLAY UNTIL THE FINAL TWO ARE DETERMINED FROM THE SEMIFINALS .


THE SUPREME CHAMPION IS THEN THE WINNER OF THE FINALS .
THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN HAPPEN IS WITH CONSTANT CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER . AND CONSTANT CONTACT WITH ME UPDATING ME WITH THE RESULTS OF EACH MATCH SO THAT I CAN KEEP THE BRACKETS GENERATING UNTILL THE END .



When I saw an ad in "challonge " that said emded cusomizeable brackets in your website . I decided to try it . When I finally figured it out I created a Page 3 (CLICK TO VIEW , CLICK THE BACK ARROW TO RETURN TO THIS PAGE ) to dedicate our bracket tournaments to .


The BLITZ scorecard is also on that page . Along with a chat box .


Now you can view the progress of the tournament in real time as it completes each round and moving to the next stage .


You will see who your opponent is what course and the conditions right there while you are in the chat . It will be much more clarifying and efficient than having to click back and forth and waiting for me to type it into the chat. Myself or someone will still have to go to the " challonge" tournament page once the scores are recorded for each round and close out the group and start the next one .


BTW anyone with a "challonge " account can record the scores . But you need " admin " to start and stop the phases and tourneys .


[size=14]I would like to give a couple of you " admin " for the occasions that you and the other matches finish before mine and I havn't returned to the chat(ADMIN CAN ONLY BE ASSIGNED ON A PER MATCH BASIS ) . To go ahead and be sure the scores and brackets are recorded and closed . That way you will be able to see some of the match ups for the next group and maybe take a few minutes break . Be sure and return though . lol . Then I will return , record the final scores for that round , close it out and start the next group or round . Should run smooth as silk . Ha . We all know better .

[size=14][size=13]http://challonge.com/????????

http://www.valleyofthesuncc.com/portal?pid=2 ( our page 3 )
Players MUST register to play on the challonge website at the link provided
players must register for each tournament at the sign in link provided . sometime during the week prior to the tournament . As soon as possible . Helps determine attendance , match ups etc.

There is also a check in at challonge required no less than 1 hour prior to the match . The automated bracket maker will automatically remove any registered player in the tournament if thet have not checked in prior to the START time of the tournament . As admin I can re enter you . But beleive me I have plenty to do . The more you step up the more likely this will be successful .

Everyone must be green available for everyone , must be friends , must know how to set and create a match in WGT . Please be sure to have cleaned and or cleared or whatever helps your computer run optimally at least in reasonable time to check and test everything long before so there are no surprises when it comes to tournament time . Please read all of this guide and as much as you can in the site about our tourneys long before the tournament . Ask questions . Very reccommended long before tourney time . As there will be no time for me to stop for 1 second . Ask someone there in the chat room with you if you have still unanswered questions .

All tournaments similar to ours use a chat box for all players to meet for communicating and assembling . The precheck in prior to the tournament in our chat must be within 30 minures prior to the tournament . this is very important to determine attendance . Once all players have arrived and checked in to both challonge and our chat . As the start time nears but not before ( always late comers ). Admin (me ) can then go and set the final brackets and match ups .

Communication : Communicating in the chat is very crucial to the succes of an event . Everyone must understand and respect that there are many others there and all are typing at the same time as you . While you were typing , someone else may have typed a question for you . It is up to you to scan the messages in the box and see if there is something asked of you and you must respond as everyone is expected to see what you have typed and respond also . This is very important . You just can't type and go .( examples of this in this forum please read mandatory ).


The start time of the tournament is not the start time .

Embedded Brackets : In other tournaments similar to ours . Assemble in their chat and wait for URL's to be typed in so that you can then go to the challonge bracket page to see your brackets match ups etc. Then back to the chat . back and forth .NOT IN OURS .

I have embedded the live brackets into our website . Page 3 is where the live brackets are . As is the chat room you need to be in when we are having a tournament . We are all inthe chat . Right above us are the live brackets . ( not live until I start the tournament ).

At the start time of the tournament . Once we have determined that no one else is going to show up . I will then go and set the final brackets and match ups and start the tournament . PRIOR TO THAT ANY OF OUR NAMES THAT YOU SEE IN THE BRACKETS ARE TEMPORARY FILL INS AND NOT CORRECT . YOU WILL BE MATCHED UP DIFFERENTLY WHEN I MAKE THE FINAL BRACKETS AND START THE TOURNAMENT . All other information will be valid so you will already know what courses are played in each round fr 9 or bk 9 , etc.

After all the teams are set, you MAY receive an e-mail from challonge stating that you have been removed from the tournament (IGNORE THIS). DO NOT SIGN UP AGAIN! . This happens because I have to manually removed and replace some players to do the final re match up .

So when I return to the chat and announce that the tournament has started ( only takes a couple minutes to set depending on who showed up or not ) The names in the brackets are the real match ups . You will see your name next to your partners name and the two names of the team you guys are matched up with . The frist name on the top bracket for each match up is the person responsible for setting the match . You go to WGT and create the alt shot match with the right course fr9 or bk9 , not in practice mode ( although we can if the match ups are too extreme , we would do that to be able to set green speeds . I try to avoid that and manually do the match ups . ) You invite the other three players and play your match . The winning team is responsible for recording or reporting the win and the scoring which I havn't decided yet . ( several scenarios ) . Then everyone must wait until the other matches have been turned in . There are more rounds .

BREAKS: A maximum of 10 minutes is allowed for a break period in between rounds. The break period starts after the teams moving into the next round has been established. The break period is negotiable between the participating teams, NOT to exceed the 10 minute time limit.

DISCONNECTS: If a disconnect occurs during the game and the game can be re-established within WGT time constraints, continue on with the match. If a disconnect occurs and game CANNOT be re-established, IN TEAM PLAY ONLY
[/size]WGT rules apply and the team that cannot reconnect is forfeited. The other team wins, no matter what the score is. We are required to use WGT rules. ( NOT REQUIRED BUT IT IS A PAIN IN THE ASS . In our single player tournaments this does not have to be the case I/you/we can arbitrate other outcomes but not in team play .[/size]
[size=14]
[size=13]There is much more details involved with this whole adventure and I will be adding and amending continually as we go .


WHEN TO KNOW IF YOUR DAY IS OVER AND YOU CAN LEAVE THE TOURNAMENT:

RULE OF THUMB : PLEASE NEVER LEAVE AN EVENT UNTIL YOU HAVE SPOKEN PERSONALLY TO MYSELF ( or another admin ) TO ESTABLISH THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE ANOTHER ROUND SCHEDULED .

As the admin there are things I can do to help an individual or team to continue in our tournament play and enjoy more fun . But first you may not be aware that you already will be moving forward in a losers bracket .( with a larger field this is usually the case ). As it may not have been generated yet in the live brackets as matches are still being played . Some patience will be part of every event .

A few scenarios are possible . One is that the current running tournament is nearing the end . If there are enough interested parties , A new tournament can be generated after the final scores are recorded in the first tournament . It takes me 2 & 2 . Two minutes and two seconds to generate a tournament .
Other scenarios are possible but not likely . A very large field with many moving on and many already eliminated . I can quickly generate another tournament excluding all players in the current running event .
None of any of this will be possible without your knowledge of the whole process and protocol , patience , respect , communicative efforts and abilities , respect , love for the game , your awesome presence .
