Local RPS legend C. Urbanus, the leader of the Philadelphia scene, has dropped his press release concerning the upoming season. Of course, I am the defending champion of the city league. I have not announced whether or not I will be returning. I retired from competition after winning last years title and have not played since. Here’s the 411:
The Philadelphia Rock Paper Scissors Championship Series Planning Committee is pleased to announce that the 2nd Annual Pabst Blue Ribbon Philadelphia Rock Paper Scissors City League Championship Series (PBRPRPSCLCS) will begin play on April 15, 2007. The PBRPRPSCLCS is looking to build upon the success of its’ inaugural season, in which over 700 competitors attended nightly events in the hope of becoming City League Champion, a title ultimately claimed by local celebrity Johnny Goodtimes. This event is fully endorsed by the World Rock Paper Scissors Society (http://www.worldrps.com/), recognized as the governing body of the sport throughout the world. The PBRPRPSCLCS is pleased to welcome back Pabst Blue Ribbon, who will be returning as the Title Sponsor.

Pabst Blue Ribbon has become a strong supporter of local and regional RPS action throughout the country, sponsoring local events in several markets. Pabst strongly believes in allowing RPS enthusiasts to coordinate their own events, and the 2007 PBRPRPSCLCS will be presided over by well-known U.S. player, referee, and organizer Mr. C. Urbanus.

The PBRPRPSCLCS will take place at a variety of venues throughout the city every Sunday through Thursday beginning on April 15th. The season will culminate in the PBR RPS City League Championship Invitational on June 9th, with the City League Champion taking home a prestigious title, trophy and a $1,000 prize. In addition, over $500 worth of prizes will be awarded to the champions of nightly events.

Player points for the league will be awarded depending upon how each competitor fares in nightly competitions. Players are awarded 1 point simply for participation, with points increasing for each victory on the night. The top
64 competitors at the end of the season will be invited to compete for the PBRPRPSCLCS Championship title. In addition to their City League points, winners of the nightly tournaments will receive a gift certificate to the venue
hosting the event along with the envy of all of their friends, family and fellow competitors.
