A number of participants are shown gathered around the two televisions that were set up in the scout building for the occasion as they watch their fellow competitors battle their way through the double elimination tournament.

Fifteen two-person teams made up of individuals of a variety of age ranges competed in the double elimination tournament, and a number of other people stopped by just to watch or cheer on their friends.
