Mashup Tournament: Designed to improve game play, train for Nor’easter Tournaments/Nationals and to have a bit of fun!
MEETUP FULL – PLEASE JOIN THE WAIT-LIST & WE WILL SEE IF A SPOT OPENS UP!
Sat Mar 9 4pm-8pm (3pm to set-up and register teams)
Sun Mar 10 9am-4pm (tourney should finish by 2pm for visitors; others can stay for a fun alternative style event until 4pm – inspired by our friends in Montreal – if they still have the energy!)
Cost: $20 per person for ALL participants
(Membership/$5 ACA Insurance as usual)
Please sign up! We have the pool both Saturday night and all day Sunday, and will determine exactly how we’ll utilize it based on how many teams we can form. We have some familiar faces joining us from Boston.
Depending on the number and level of players signing up, we will have the option to run it either as a 5-player mashup or as an A/B mixed Competitive Tourney. In the latter case, A (and A-ish) players play as a team of 4; B players play as a team of 5. If we have a truly developmental team, we will develop a handicap scoring system for their games, so that all teams can be competitive. The Tournament Committee reserved the right to adjust the format/teams on site based on actual attendance.
Each team will play each other in a single or double round robin, and then we will have finals. We are planning on full-length games with 10 minute halves at present.
IMPORTANT SIGN-UP INFO: It is highly recommended that you commit to *BOTH* Tourney Days. However, if you can only play on one day, please still sign up, and make a note in the “Comments” section about which day you can play. We will try to adjust game plans accordingly to accommodate our members’ needs.
Members must sign up by *Thursday March 7th* so we can decide on the format and form teams: https://www.meetup.com/NYkayakpolo/events/258074732/
See you on the tournament pitch soon!
