Who will come out on top as the BEST rock rambling, paper punching, scissor slinger?? Find out by signing up, or just hang out in the crowd to cheer on your favorite hand ninja! We’ll have two brackets of 12 people, and it will be a double elimination so you’ll get a 2nd chance if you lose the 1st round.


It works like this:

  • Sign up to represent a team (Camp Shady Brook or UpaDowna). Suggested donation is $5
  • Show up and show off your mad, hand ninja skillz! Check-in will begin at 5:30pm with competition starting at 6pm SHARP.
  • Top three win prizes from sponsors!

Rules:
The Throws: There are three permissible “throws” in RPS: Rock, Paper and ScissorsRock crushes scissors, scissors cuts paper, and paper covers rock. There are NO exceptions. When two players “shoot” the same throw, it is a stalemate and they must throw again. After three “ties” players may be subjected to a friendly/fun punishment.

-Rock can be thrown any way as long as the fist is clenched
-Scissors is formed with your index finger and middle finger extended and shaped like a “V”. It can be thrown horizontally or vertically.
-Paper is formed by extending all your fingers out. It is always delivered horizontally with palm down.
-The “Pump” consists of closing a fist, holding it out in front of your body with elbow bent at a 45 degree angle, and thrusting it up and down three times. This must be done in sync with the opposing player.
-The “Shoot” is when a player actually delivers the throw. It comes after the first three pumps ie: “one, two three, SHOOT!”. The delivery of the shoot must be in sync with the opponent. If the shoot or the pump is not in sync at any time, the referee may declare the action dead, or penalize the player at fault. (Penalties have ranged from push-ups to quacking like a chicken and other fun torture!)
-Two out of three wins the match until finals.
-All referees’ calls are final.
