2019 Tour news - Upcoming The SemiFinals !

PostThu Apr 11, 2019 12:57 pm

Signups are proceeding nicely, with a little over a week left to go. We have 155 signed up so far. Last year 158 and the year before that, 168.

SOM has added the Windows Game as a prize for ALL Finalists now and our main page reflects that on the prizes page. Also we have been giving a free credit for all those making the semi-finals and finals to allow our players to play that event for free.

First event will be a players choice of the standard caps 60/80/100/140/200. I will create 2 leagues in every cap and monitor those leagues. If both get filled, I will create another league in that cap trying to "go with the flow" and keep enough leagues for the most popular caps. Look for the first leagues to be created April 19/20 along with your instructions and passwords to come in an e-mail.

You will be advised to get your team in as soon as possible so that you have a better chance of playing that cap. For example if the SECOND 60 mil league only has 2 or 3 players, they might be told they have to switch to a cap that is more likely to fill. Whereas the FIRST 60 Mil league DID FILL. Same goes for the 200 Mil cap, the other end of the extreme caps.

60/80 NO DH 100/140/200 DH

SOM is working on adding features to the Live Draft app to make it more Barnstormers friendly. This is why the highest cap events have been pushed to the end of the schedule. We will either see this come to life, or this really will be the last Barnstormers that I run.

Thanks for your patience in waiting for Barnstormers 2019 to return. I really was looking forward to retirement, but I heard your call !

Thanks Moose! SOM added several new 1999 parks recently. Will you be assigning them to their respective groups prior to Event #1?

I know that process has been completed. I don’t know when it will be added, but I imagine soon

All of the new ballparks were added and color highlighted a couple of weeks ago. Please check the Barnstormers forum posting which shows the ballpark groupings BEFORE you ask about them. Thanks to new board member MonkeyMaker for his analysis on categorizing the new parks.

http://forum.365.strat-o-matic.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=630603&sid=a588e7416bf1ef8a8b444cdd809f2b8d

Some of the listings are very borderline for belonging in a different group. If anyone wants to challenge a ballpark, they will be put before the board for a final ruling.

Any actually, it wasn't just "several" 1999 parks, it was ALL of them. ;)

Hello Moose. Glad to hear you're sticking around! Would you mind posting the email address you plan to use to send out Barnstormer emails with? For some reason, I never get your emails, and want to add the correct address to my gmail. Thanks.

2019 Tour news and NEXT EVENT 2

PostWed May 01, 2019 9:09 pm

Event #1 is put to bed. 165 players loaded a team. 2 no shows. If you were a no show, you can still start at Event 2, as can any new signups to the tour.

Speaking of Event 2, this will be 80 Mil, NO DH. This will have a start date of May 27 and a secondary start date of June 3. This means that leagues will get CREATED and the Event announced on Friday evening May 17 or Saturday May 18.

The Ballpark groupings USED TO DATE thread has been started and your Event #1 choice is listed. The Main Standings Page is working and tracking leagues and players.
