NAHBPC schedule, format, logistics, directions, etc

Keep your eye here, we'll be updating this throughout the week.

Schedule

  • Thursday all day: Pickup at Reynolds Field (aka Thunderdome, corner of Paterson and Dayton)
  • Thursday 8pm: Party at High Noon Saloon
  • Friday 10am: Morning group (check what group you're in here)
  • Friday 2:30pm: Afternoon group
  • Saturday 10am: Morning group
  • Saturday 4pm: Afternoon group
  • Saturday 8pm: Party at Ale Asylum
  • Sunday 10am: 32 team Double elimination (finals around 5:30pm)
  • Sunday 7pm: Party at Just Coffee (tentative)

See the whole schedule with the swiss rounds Sunday's double elim bracket (we will hopefully update this live)

Format

We've come up with a system that we think maximizes polo and ensures as many good games as possible for everyone.

  • On Friday, 32 teams will play in a morning group, 34 teams in the afternoon group.   There will be five Swiss Rounds for each group, which means you play five games on Friday.  Unless you place in the top 10 of your group on Friday, you will play six games on Saturday morning, starting at 10am, also in Swiss Rounds, in a group of 48 teams.  The top 12 teams from that group of 48 proceed to Sunday's double elimination.
  • If your team places in the top 10 of your group on Friday, you will play four games in a group of 20 on Saturday afternoon (4pm) and you are guaranteed to play in the double elimination on Sunday.

HOW SWISS ROUNDS WORK

  • The goal of Swiss rounds is to get as many evenly matched games as possible.  In each round you will play against a team that has approximately the same record as you.  This means that matches should get progressively more competitive, and we'll get accurate rankings for Sunday's double elimination.
  • It also means that we will be creating the pairings on the fly. There will be a court captain at each court reporting the score of each game to tournament officials, who will then develop the next round of games. 
  • Each team will need to pay attention to the court captains, the loudspeakers, or the schedule displayed at the officials' tent in the middle of all the courts, to know when you play next.  To help this process, we will schedule the teams with the better records at Court 1 and 2, and the teams with poorer records at Court 5 and 6.  So if you have a winning record you'll probably be at Court 1, 2 or 3, and a losing record you'll probably be at court 4, 5 or 6.

DOUBLE ELIMINATION SUNDAY

  • Sunday will be a 32 team double elimination, starting at 10am, and going to about 6pm
  • We've tried to make it so that you move courts as little as possible, but check the schedule available at each court to see where you play next. If you lose a game, you might be playing immediately after. If you win a game in the winner's bracket, you'll get a break. If you win a game in the losers bracket, you may play again immediately.  Be ready, and don't bitch at the court captain; if it were single elimination you wouldn't be playing at all.

PICKUP

  • There will be lots of time for pickup throughout the weekend.  Before 10am each day, after 6:30pm each day.  Sunday there will four courts free for most of the day.  On Thursday 15th, you can play at Reynolds Field, aka the Thunderdome, corner of Paterson and Dayton, closer to the Capitol.
