General: The 2nd Annual ASLSK Championship is a leisurely competition held between players. It is held as a part of the broader 17th Annual NY State ASL Championship which is for Full ASL.

For those so inclined: http://nys-asl.com/sk-master-class-with-steven-pleva/

This year, as a departure from the norm we will be using VASL and Skype.* It will be held in a number of rounds (more of that below).

Round 5: Optional and Only if Needed: TBD

Philosophy:
I will match winning players against winning players & losing players against losing players on a first come first serve basis. As soon as I have two players available and in the respective categories I will contact the two players via email. I will assign attacker/defender according to your choices when possible. This also allows the defender some time to consider a defense.

I really don't care when the initial matches are held.
Theoretically, a person could play four games by 29 November if they are so inclined and there are opponents willing and able to play.

If there is an odd number of players I will have queued up a non- participating SK player as a stand-in. No, I am not in the tournament.

The above timetable gives players enough time to feel comfortable with the VASL engine as well as have meaningful games.

Please note that by mutual consent of the two players ANY scenario can be played in place of those shown in each round. The listed scenarios are not put in as a prohibition against players wanting to change it up a bit. We’re good with that.

We are striving for a fun and challenging environment - but FUN! It does not matter what level you are currently at. Each round has challenge and scope for any level of player. Most of the scenarios are currently available or have been available for some time. We have chosen many from the MMP site for download so no one should feel that they are at any disadvantage and no round has two scenarios from any single module.

Players can exclude any one scenario from any round so they only need to choose a first and second choice and an exclude choice on the Registration Form.

This is a “tournament” geared for both novice players as well as veterans. After all, we are all trying to improve our knowledge of the game. The only wrinkle in this is a time zone issue that could be experienced. To ensure it is manageable I have limited this to North and South America only.

At the end of each game please forward who was victorious and what scenario you played (although I will probably know - it’s good to be on the same page).

All times used will be Eastern Standard Time.

*. - Players are free to use Discord or some other means of communication (like smoke signals) as long as they both agree.

** - The $5 fee can be sent to:
Joe Leoce 39 Ashton Drive Staten Island NY 10312 or via Paypal to the above email address and indicate “friends and family” on your payment when using Paypal so no fees are deducted please.

*** - if you do not have a checking account and only a Venmo account, and would like to participate please email me for further details.
