This tournament follows a bracket format. There are four regions for the 64 Cheesesteaks. These regions are: 1. The Philadelphia region. 2. The Delaware County, Delco region. 3. The NJ/DE region. 4. The remaining Philadelphia region county region. This area combines Chester, Montgomery and Berks cheesesteaks.
The selection process. It was much more difficult than I expected. I used my spreadsheet to sort cheesesteaks with scores of 90 or more. Each region was divided into 36 regions. This allowed for approximately the same number of cheesesteaks with scores 90 or higher. From 36 cheesesteaks per area, I needed to reduce that number to 16. Some well-deserving cheesesteaks did not make it to the big dance. There's always next year, sorry.
