We are planning a tournament for Australia Day, Wednesday 26th January, 2011.

Interstate visitors are welcome, sorry about the midweek, either way, we’ll see you in Sydney for the Bench Feb 5th. If you can still make it, drop us a line and we’ll arrange all the appropriate accomodations.

Registration will at noon on 17th of Jan and at 6pm one week later so that we can prepare brackets/rounds/etc. Format will be rounds (probably swiss) followed by finals in the afternoon.

Read the rules here (www.bikepolo.com.au/rules) which include penalties for dick moves, a few details will be confirmed closer to the date (BJ restriction type etc) tho they are pretty much the same rules we use.

Teams must wear matching shirts, and you will have to select your team colour when you register, once you register, it’s yours, first come first served.

Other features: BBQ, A sound system, prizes you can be proud of!

The venue will be North Carlton with fishmarkets as a backup.

Hey everyone,

Good to hear about the potential interstate/overseas visitors. glad we put our hand up for this one.

If any people not familiar with the lay of the land here, PM me your postal address and I'll send you a bike map courtesy of the City/Transport Department.

Registration should go live next week after the bench draft results are published.
We will give you advance notice so you can try getting your hands onto your favourite team colour as soon as the rego system goes live.

Format will be rounds* between 11am - 5pm-ish and then top 4 progress to finals. (sunset is about 8:30pm)
* more details when we know how many teams we're dealing with and how our swiss tech research is going.

The venue will be North Carlton, any problems we have a backup.

If anyone can help out organising prizes, please do and get in touch with me.
There will also be cash prizes as per Sydney Open/Brisbane Throw Up and some Melbourne tourneys in the past.

Rego fee is also yet to be confirmed, but it'll be something reasonable.
