EPT RESTART! New Championship Formats and Updated Dates!

06-28-2021 01:10:14 PM

We know that these championship events are a big part of our league and the community that these championship bring together so we certainly have prioritized these events once we had the staffing and the capacity to host them.

Now that we have restarted our events to some capacity, we have gotten a lot of questions in regards to how we are treating the restart and how the points and championships are effected now that we have restarted to some capacity. 

We are working hard to get all our events back up and running to the capacity of where we started. Despite quite a few challenges, we have been able to get to about 50% capacity in just a couple of weeks and are hopeful we will be back at 100% by August 1st.

As you know, the Bar Industry and more specifically the Bar Entertainment Industry has been one of the hardest hit industries with EPT and many of our venues completely closed for 14+ Months so please bear with us as we work hard to getting things back up and running. Please also show your support by patronizing our events while you are there and take care of your wait staff.
