Maybe it’s because the World Series of Beer Pong (entering its fourth season) is starting to catch on, or maybe it’s because people really, really enjoy organized drinking - but beer pong tournaments are becoming the next hot thing amongst the college bunch.
Anticipating this growing trend, Stephen Catanzaro & Paul Cardone, founders of NJ Beer Pong, have begun hosting a weekly Wednesday night beer pong tournament at Miami Mikes Sports Zone in East Hanover, NJ, which has become one of the premiere BP competitions in the North Jersey region, with students from FDU, Drew U., Montclair State and Seton Hall joining in the action each week.
There are only 77-something days until the World Series of Beer Pong IV kicks off in Las Vegas, NV and Catanzaro & Cardone have decided to take their game to the next level. The two are scheduled to host an Official WSOBP IV Satellite Tournament qualifying event on Saturday, November 15th at McFaddens Restaurant & Saloon in Philadelphia. The winning team of the Philly event will receive free entry into the WSOBP IV, a four-night stay at the Flamingo in Las Vegas and a chance to play for the $50,000 Grand Prize.
That means if you’re a student in the New Jersey and Philadelphia region that likes beer pong, free trips to Vegas and wouldn’t mind an extra $50K in your pocket, head over to NJBPong.com and register for the event. If you can’t make it down to Philly on the 15th for their satellite tournament, fear not. Players may buy-in to the WSOBP IV at any time prior to Dec. 5, 2008. And of course, don’t forget to check back here at COED for up to date coverage of all the action.
