2nd Chance Bastille Day Tournament - Saturday - Campus Martius Park

For those of us who could not participate in Brooklyn's tournament, we'll have a simple tournament at Campus Martius Park this Saturday (July 22nd). The timing format in Brooklyn was interesting (2 shifts of game-play) so in the interest of experimentation, I'm going to see if I can implement it here on Saturday.

Basically, as this is short notice, there will be matches played (starting at around 11am) and as others show up, the 2nd shift of matches can begin.

As people may need to leave (as not many can endure an 8 hour petanque day) their rankings are set, and the new shift matches still need to compete with those rankings.

What I'm trying to develop here is a method for running a tournament, on-the-fly, with varied participation times...
