Interbike 2009 Bike Polo Tournament and Exhibition
Swagger has graciously decided to set up a lighted polo court in the parking lot of Mandalay Bay. Right next to the Course for the USA Crit Finals. We'll be setting the court up on Tuesday and It'll be there till Friday when we break it down. Feel Free to come play when you want. Thursday night during the USA Crit Series Finals we'll be having a small tournament open to anyone in Vegas. We'll randomly select teams and try to make them even. We should have enough bikes to loan them out if people need polo bikes. So bring your mallet to Interbike and Lets play some polo on the Vegas strip.
Cost is $10, which we'll divide up 50% to the winning team along with whatever prizes we have, and 50% to help finish paying off the lights. We also have a deal with Mandalay Bay, $20 for 5 beers.
Tuesday/Wednesday: Random pickup polo at the court whenever, we'll figure this out.
6:30 Meet at the Court in the Parking long of Mandalay Bay. We'll play a Small Swiss Rounds tournament and determine team rankings and then do a double Elimination tourney. Think about what kind of player you are (A,B, or C) so we can draw straws and make fairish teams. We'll take a short brake when the Race starts at 9:15, and hopefully finish around 10:30, or we'll take another brake when the race finishes, and then finish the tournament. I'm not planning on more than 18 people and I think that might be pushing it, but if 30 show up we'll pound it out.
Thanks so much to Velocity, Milwaukee, Chrome, and Eighth Inch for being awesome.
