Hardcourt's longest running tournament

Could you explain this statement?

//genuine question, thanks!

The westside invite was a decade long messenger event that occured in portland and one year in Seattle. the polo tournament will be in it's 7th incarnation this year in Olympia. This is the first year where the messenger race and polo tournament are two separate events.

The prize for winning the westside for the last 4 years are hand made champion belts by former portland bike guru Dr. Doom.

The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.


If you aren't sinning, Jesus died for nothing.

i'll be showin up with medic and swrv. best watch out! last year at the invite cody nic-named me "3 months"

To hell with your trophies, your crowns and your qualifications, the belts are the prize you put it all on the line for.

The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

Also, Oly.

Way to get it together, super stoked.

New development, have a chance to get the courts back, working on that right now. Likely that we can still throw it at the original location. Contact mark or me for details.

Incredibly sorry.

I really wish this had been posted with more than 6 weeks notice, I would love to have gone. Best of luck to Mustache defending!

we missed you, joker! there's always next year

If you aren't sinning, Jesus died for nothing.

another x2. still gotta get that fixed, kev :P

If you aren't sinning, Jesus died for nothing.


Got the evergreen courts back, see you all there.

Did this actually happen? Anyone heard of PODIUM? ??

Day one was seeding - Swiss Rounds?

We rocked the Westside super old skool. Just like its supposed to be done! All games to 5, no refs!

Love the game to 5 action, so much rain? No problem, this is Cascadia!!

If you aren't sinning, Jesus died for nothing.

I'm sure... I was just hoping that would be on podium so i could follow... I guess more important things were taking place, like resecuring the tournament courts HAH. Anyone have numbers for yesterdays seeding?

missed you man. whewwwwww.... olydrama is the best, xx-o

that's my shit

It's 12:20 and this is BULLSHIT!! Who has the belts?

I hear the guardians won. Can we get final standings?

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

The Guardians won 1st. Cascadia Alliance (Crandall's Team) was 2nd. 3rd was WUP (Rory/Alex/Leon), 4th was Moustache. 5th was a split between Evan/Kelly/Paul and Mess/Scoot/Max.

MVP was split between two people, Koyo from Seattle and Evan from Seattle.

Congrats Guardians. Way to look solid as usual.

Crandall, way to kill it all weekend long.

Messman, thanks for taking a leap of faith and playing with us.

Moustache - we were up 3-2 on you and it rained like hell on us. Well played, you'll come back for those belts next year, well so will messman.

See you Nanaimo next year! And E.Van Crown this year!

Crandall's Team was Crandall/Arlyn/Drew (SEA)

My favorite loss of the weekend. Thanks guys.

DFL was the Eugene team, but I think that team is much better than DFL.

thanks oly and seattle, that was fun! if a bit wet


that's my shit

unleash the beast! xoxo

Whos got the crack!

Dear Oly,

Thanks for hosting the raddest tournament I have been to in a long time! Here is a list of the things that I thought were awesome at your event...

the food - seriously the best food I have ever had at any event anywhere... seriously
no refs - amazing that cascadia players are self reffing
no timed games - 5 points ftw!
tarp city - the rain brings all so much closer together
the courts - not even slick in a downpour of rain
the polo - cascadia's finest at it again!

I can't wait to be back in your city for pre-worlds international pickup!

probably too seriously...


thank you mark, zach, alexander, and the oly crew for an awesome tournament! great job on keeping the west side alive and in its finest. Thank you birds eye and sasha for being on my team. kablamo shazam from planet x!


and x2 to everything eric said
