As part of the UK Walkathon event on Nov 15th, the Bay Area Carrom Club will be conducting a "Carrom Challenge" at the venue in Mountain View. Whether you are a recreational player who just loves the game or an erstwhile champion curious to know if you've still got it, here's your chance to test your carrom skills. Plus it's for a good cause - all proceeds go to charity
We have planned lots of fun and competitive variations of carrom, there will be something for every skill level. May be you are a much better player than you think or may be you will upset a champion. Only one way to find out... Are you up for the challenge?!
Participants have 3 options to choose from -
C1: CHALLENGE A CHAMPION
Challenge a bayarea carrom champion. 3 boards, challenger gets to break twice.
C2: LAST STRIKER STANDING
1 board, winner to stay. If you win 3 boards in a row, play a final board against a champion. Win that to be the "Last Striker Standing"!
C3: SOLO CHALLENGE
Pocket all 19 coins on the board in 35 strokes or less. Any order (black and white don't matter), but Queen must be covered.
- Unlimited free play for UK Walkathon participants ($15 early bird).
- $10: Carrom only, unlimited play.
- $5: Carrom only, you get 1 shot at each challenge.
[All fees will be donated to Udavum Karangal (see http://www.udavumkarangal.org)]
If you win any challenge, you get your entry fee back and will also be a seeded player in the next Bay Area Open Carrom Tournament (early 2010). Apart from the bragging rights that is ;-)
