Hey everybody,

The 2006 TEVA Mountain Games in Vail are fast approaching and it's about time to give you the lowdown. The event is always a great time and you're all invited to attend and compete.

The big news is the purse -- it was upped to $16,000. $10,000 is going to the bouldering event, where a new finals format will debut featuring practice sessions and no isolation.

Also, for those amateur and pro photographers out there, the TEVA Games is holding their annual Photo Contest with a $5,000 purse. Entries are due soon -- check the website for submission details.

I've posted a bunch of info below. The complete schedule and format descriptions are also posted at Definitely contact me with any questions.

It's gonna be a blast -- see you there!

Top three competitors from the Sat morning standard ABS format citizen comp advance to Qualifiers in the afternoon (7 are invited from Nationals, so 10 total competitors in Qualifiers). For Qualifiers, everyone will climb on #1 before moving to #2, with 2min per person per problem. Scoring is per-hold with bonuses for making "useful movement" and "touching the [useable] of the next hold". There are 4 total problems and between #2 and #3 the field gets cut to 6 competitors.
Practice -- Friday
Comp -- Saturday
Purse -- $10,000 ($2,500 $1,000 $700 $500 300)

There will be 25 scored two-stage dynos to pick from, many with included tricks (180, 360, step-up, etc). There will also be a panel of expert judges that will render a score between 5 and 10 for "execution" (climbing smoothly and solidly). Your score is 75% difficulty, 25% judge panel. Climbers are arranged into a rotation and given 30sec to complete a dyno. Three rotations, scored by your best two. Top 5 advance to Finals, using the same format.
Practice -- Friday
Comp -- Sunday
Purse -- $3,000 ($1,000 $300 $200)

There will be two long, traversing problems on opposite sides of the boulder. Time begins when your foot leaves the ground, and ends when you hit a bell or button. You get two runs on each line during Qualifiers, and your score is the sum of your best on each line. The top 8 climb head-to-head tournament-style in Finals.
Practice -- Friday
Comp -- Sunday
Purse -- $3,000 ($1,000 $300 $200)
