WHAT IS MEGA SNOW PONG??
Mega Snow Pong is a game based on the commonly known game of Beer Pong. 6 garbage cans are placed on each side of a court in a triangle formation (as in setting up a shuffleboard game). The “head” garbage cans are at 15’ apart. Team members throw balls into the opposite set of garbage cans. A ball landing in a garbage can results in the removal of that can. The object is to remove all of the cans on the opposing side of the pong court.
HOW IS IT PLAYED?
Teams are made of 2 (player 1 and 2) players. Rounds of play run as follows:
Team A player 1 throws 3 balls.
Team B player 1 throws 3 balls.
Team A player 2 throws 3 balls.
Team B player 2 throws 3 balls.
Team B player 1 throws 3 balls
Team A player 1 throws 3 balls
Team B player 2 throws 3 balls
Team A player 2 throws 3 balls
And so on until one side has no cans on it, at which point the other side will have won.
HOW DO WINNERS ADVANCE?
Each team will be set up on a bracket and winners will advance (Think Final Four Bracketology here folks.)
WHERE DO WE PLAY?
Mega Snow Pong Courts will be located in front of The Okoboji Store.
WHEN AND WHICH COURT AM I ON?
You will receive your assigned court and time, or position on the bracket at sign-in which opens at 10:00 am Saturday. It will be necessary for you to be signed in and in the court area 1 match BEFORE your match. Any no-shows for matches will result in forfeiture.
Main Brackets will be posted at the Stage by the courts. They will be updated live as play progresses.
Players may not interfere with shots once they are thrown.
Shots may be made directly in the can or they may be bounced (on the ground only) in. No bank shots of ricochet shots allowed.
Cans may not be rearranged during the games.
If cans vacillate or move during play due to contact with balls thrown, rearrangement is not allowed.
Can must remain upright with ball remaining inside to count as a valid shot.
In the event a can is tipped over during play the can must be replaced as close to its original position as possible.
Cans will be removed by referees only.
Only registered players may be on the court or throw balls during game play.
Referees may penalize players for delay of game.
All referee decisions are final.
