China Open is this weekend! Schedule is released…

(English below)

队长们好,

再过6天就是我们期待已久的第四届中国极限飞盘公开赛了!大家兴奋吗?以下是一些大家需要知道的信息:

1.   赛程安排以及周五的签到晚会

大家再也无需等待。快去查看附件

星期五晚上,我们将采用世界杯抽签形式来决定每个小组的小组成员。每个组都要包含以上四类队伍中各一个。

如果以下组合出现在同一小组,我们会重新抽签:

–北京帮和北京帮帮
–天津黄和天津红
–Air Kazak和Air Woo

星期五晚上10点,我们在梦之旅国际青年旅舍(组委安排的比赛协议宾馆之一,位于交道口大街和安定门内大街路口南)抽签。我们将在同一宾馆的二楼举行签到晚会。组委会成员大概在晚上7点或8点抵达。参赛人员将享受消费折扣,啤酒5元每瓶(大瓶),食物打8折。免费上网。

2. 赛制,补充

小组全胜的队伍自动进入前四强(输赢记录、分数差异都对他们的名次有影响)并且在四分之一决赛时轮休。每组第二名和第三名将在星期天早上进行交叉赛,也就是八分之一决赛。交叉赛对手(与其他小组成员对决)将于星期五晚上提前抽签决定。交叉赛胜出队伍将自动位列5-8名(得分总数差异会影响名次)。如果出现同一小组内两支队伍在四分之一决赛对阵的情形,排名将有所调整。

我们保证每支队伍在星期六至少有4场比赛,星期天至少2场。

中国队伍与外国队伍之间的比赛仅供观看。比赛结果不会对任何一方的名次产生任何影响。因此,中国队伍在跟外国队伍对阵的时候,不必严格遵行每分外国队员上场人数不超过2人的规定。(但是,我们鼓励各中国队伍在这样的比赛中也能自动遵守这一规则)。

3. 比赛形式和赛点安排

所有比赛打到11分,13分时为硬分限。半决赛和决赛(适用于中、外小组)打到13分,15分时硬时限.

对于打到11分的比赛,比赛进行到55分钟时为软时限。当前分结束后,领先队伍再得2分即获胜。所以获胜队伍必须领先两分。

比赛进行到65分钟时为硬时限。这种情况下,领先队伍再得一分即获胜。重要的是:如果已经提示硬时限到了,那么当前分结束后,领先多于一分(至少两分)的队伍直接获胜。

澄清一点,我们所说的“下一分”在一方得分后马上开始计算。因此,就是说如果在刚刚发盘或得分后我们提示时限到了,那么等当前分结束,在进行下一分。

半决赛和外国小组的决赛,软、硬时限分别在每场比赛的第60/70分钟提示。

中国组的决赛,软、硬时限分别在第100/110分钟提示。

奖惩分:比赛队伍的所有人都应在规定的比赛开始时间站成一条直线准备。每晚五分钟,没有开盘,对手将奖励1分。

4. 奖项设置

中、外小组冠军,最佳飞盘精神队伍和晚会冠军均会得到一个奖杯;男、女最佳飞盘手和8名优秀分盘手均会得到一个奖牌。

5. 住宿

稍后我们会跟各队队长确认房间的安排。各个宾馆均以“杨燕”之名预定。队员抵达的时候直接报杨燕就行。记得带身份证(原件,有特殊情况与我们联系)。

6. 当场报名

队员可以在比赛当天增加报名人数,但是有一个情况例外:中国队伍中外国人数已达到上限的,当天不能再增加外国人数。

稍后我们会发给各队长一个“队长特别信息包”,请大家注意查收。

如果有任何意见和建议,请直接与我们联系。

中国极限飞盘2010年公开赛组委会

Dear Captains,

China Open/Nationals is six days away! Let’s cut to the chase.

I. SCHEDULE AND REGISTRATION PARTY

The wait is over. Please see here.

On Friday night we will hold a World Cup-style draw to determine the pools. Each pool will have one team from each of the four tiers.

If these pairs of teams are drawn into the same pool, we will re-draw:

–Beijing Bang and Bang Bang
–Tianjin Yellow and Tianjin Red
–Air Kazak and Air Woo

The draw will happen at 10 p.m. at Dream Travel, which is one of the tourney hotels (just south of the corner of Jiaodaokou and Andingmen Nei). This will also be where the registration party is happening — specifically, on the second-floor lounge. Your tourney directors will be there starting around 7 or 8 pm, so swing by and say hi. Rumor has it that beers are 5 kuai (food and wi-fi also available).

II. SCHEDULE, addendum

Pool winners get byes into quarterfinals and are the 1 through 4 seeds (as determined by W-L record, point differential, etc.). Second and third place teams in the pools play a cross-over on Sunday morning, essentially pre-quarters. The question of which pool’s teams face each other in the cross-over will be pre-determined by random drawing on Friday night. Cross-over winners are the the 5 through 8 seeds (as determined by normal means, with point-diff including the cross-over result).

All teams are guaranteed four games Saturday and two Sunday.

Foreign teams vs. Chinese teams are for exhibition only. These games will not count toward the final standings for either the foreign or Chinese team. As a result, Chinese teams are not beholden to the two foreigners limit rule. (Although for obvious reasons, we strongly encourage Chinese teams to abide by the limit.)

III. FORMAT AND TIME CAPS

All games are to 11, point cap at 13, except semifinals and foreign/Chinese finals, which are to 13, point cap 15.

For all games to 11, soft time cap will be called at 55 minutes. At the conclusion of the point, add two points to the team in the lead and play to that. It is still win by two.

Hard cap is called at 65 minutes. Add one to team with lead, play to that; win by one. IMPORTANT: If hard cap is called and, at the conclusion of the point, one of the teams leads by more than one, the game is over.

Just so there’s no confusion, “next point” begins the moment a point is scored. Therefore, if cap is called immediately following a score but before the pull, the cap applies to AFTER the point.

For semifinals and foreign finals, soft/hard cap will be at 60/70 minutes.

For Chinese finals, soft/hard cap will be at 100/110 minutes.

Assessing points: teams can start putting a full line on the field the minute a round is supposed to begin. Every five minutes afterwards, one point is assessed against the absent team.

IV. AWARDS

Trophies will be awarded for Chinese champion, foreign champion, spirit (team), party (team). Medals are for male MVP, female MVP and Elite Eight.

V. HOTELS

Captains will be getting confirmations of hotel reservations later this week. A reminder that all hotels are registered under the name Yang2 Yan4. Foreigners, remember to bring your passport! (Or a photocopy of passport.)

VI. NEW REGISTRANTS

Players can register on the day of the tournament, with one exception: Chinese teams on the cusp of the foreigner limit cannot add a foreigner that would tip them over to the foreigner bracket.

Please expect a captains’ pack in the coming days as well.

As always, questions/comments, let us know.
