The Beer League Players Association’s Draft Experience (DEX) is coming to Anchorage August 19-21.
DEX is designed to eliminate ringers and stacked teams. The draft format rates each player accurately and builds comparable and competitive teams. We won’t get into the nuts and bolts of the DEX draft system here–more info is available directly from the BLPA. We can tell you that the Friday night draft itself is an event, and includes a “chug-off” to determine who picks first in the draft!
Once the teams have been drafted another chug-off will determine who gets first pick of game times. Each team is guaranteed five games over the weekend. Participants also get game jerseys and socks (which they keep), a tournament t-shirt, and three memorable days of beer league hockey.
All skill levels are welcome for this three-day event. You can find more info and register today at the BLPA DEX website.
