Ladder placement drawing will occur on Friday, February 1 at 3:00 pm. The Tournament Ladders will be located in the Student Lounge. Play may begin on Monday, February 4.
All entrants will be initially placed on a number “ladder” by drawing names out of a hat. Once competition begins participants may challenge the individual one or two places above their own number. Once the challenge has been made the game must be played within 48 hours. If the challenger wins, the two participants change positions on the ladder. If the challenger loses, placement remains the same. The winner is responsible for immediately notifying Student Activities. The ladder will be updated each Wednesday and Friday. Competition will take place from February 4 – March 29. On March 29, at 2:00 pm, the individuals occupying the top slot in each ladder will be crowned tournament champions and receive a $20.00 Walmart gift certificate.
