    Fellow Rookies,

    As you know we are all antsy to get this incredible league started! RadarRider has decided we will wait until the official roster is released to begin the regular season.

    We will now initiate the first annual Rookie Symposium Double Elimination Tournament to kick this bad boy off!

    We will follow our league rules here: http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/threads/league-rules-and-regulations-must-read.83634/
    There are a few amendments and/or reinforcements to the rules:

    1. Quarters will be 10 minute
    2. There will be a 20 second run-off
    3. All games must be scheduled as if this were the regular season
    4. We will use a 48 hour schedule window to get the games in (exceptions may be made or your game may be randomized using randomizer.org if there's no way either of you can play. This will be a quick moving tournament because we don't want this to take away from our regular season only add to.)
    5. There will be no tie games. In the result of overtime ending in a tie you are to restart the game and play until someone scores.
    6. You can use whatever playbook you like for this tournament and you can change it between games. Find the playbook you love before the season starts!

    Seeding has been done using randomizer.org/list generating a truly random seeding order. The tournament begins tomorrow 8/28!

    The Bracket can be viewed on google documents at any time:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AtfmIxcf1oXMdHRvWnhodGNhLXRBb0tyODJaNGtRcnc

    Scheduling: Please use our scheduling forum here http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/forums/game-scheduling.802/

    Results: Winners of each game are to post in the following thread only: http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/threads/rookie-symposium-2012-tournament-results.84215/

    The format should be

    Bracket/Round
    WinnersTeam: Score
    LossersTeam: Score

    Example:

    Winners Bracket / Round 3
    Carolina Panthers: 24
    Atlanta Falcons: 21


    Note: You must join the community Rookie Symposium to invite your opponent with the correct settings.

    When online type in Rookie Symposium in the community search and the password is tsors12


    Proof that I used randomizer.org/list incase interested

    Strict schedule as follows going forward:
    (you may have to get in 2 games sometimes but this is fully possible to schedule. You must be proactive if you know you're the winner of a losers bracket game and you're waiting for the other two to finish their game send them both a message and schedule your game with the winner sometime there after.)


    Round 3 Winners and Round 2 Losers
    Due Date: 9/4 at 11:59pm EST

    Round 4 Winners and Round 3 Losers
    Due Date: 9/6 at 11:59pm EST

    Round 5 Winners and Round 4 Losers
    Due Date: 9/8 at 11:59 EST

    Round 5, 6, and 7 of Losers
    Due Date: 9/10 at 11:59 EST

    Everyone is automatically opted in :)

    You must specifically forfeit to your first opponent to opt out.

    This is what I'm talking about! This tournament needs a name to put on the trophy! Like "TRS Tournament Champs" or something to brag about in our sig

    Realized I drew the best team in the league in the first round :eek:

    Tomorrow may be ideal, I have ultimate frisbee today at 7est which is 4Pst, so tomorrow we'll look to do it. If we can't get a time due to my activities, I'll let you advance to the next round. But I'll want to go to the losers bracket kdpnutter RadarRider
