Come down to Eugene and check out our new fancy courts. Hockey-grade plastic boards, outdoor, covered and lit 24 hours. We will be hosting the tournament simultaneously with the opening of the WJ Skatepark next door. Beneath the 126 overpass, the skate park is the nation's largest outdoor, covered and lit skate park. There are expected to be over 3,000 people attending this extravaganza. You ever played in front of that many rabid people? Bring your boards, bring your BMX's, but most of all bring your teams to compete to see who is the biggest troll!

Sleeping provided by the good people of Eugene Bike Polo (some floor space and backyards). Rager Saturday night.

Bern prizes and more!

$30 a team.

Double Elim on Sunday

24 hrs of lit, covered, outdoor courts? maybe you should have called it the LockOut

--
Like the Care Bears said, "sharing (bicycles, F/OSS, alcohol and Josh's Mom...) is caring"

I'll come just to make sure this place is real. don't expect me to leave though!

I am also going to follow the yellow brick road with you! Maybe we will spot some unicorns here as well!!

I'd be excited if I have the weekend off.

Update, This is the one weekend I have to work in June. Wah waaaahhh.

____________
The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

Checks flights ;)

same weekend as LA6. Suuuuuuuper bummed...

shotgun your bike!

Sounds like a blast! Can't wait!

Peace to all the Gods and the Earths!

Sounds like a blast! I. AM. IN.

is $30 the reg fee or the troll toll?

you have to pay the troll toll ...

... to get in this boy'sshoule

Im in!

Deaddog- sacbikepolo

but seriously, can you please change it so there is no double elim sundays. do single elim with series of three. double elimination is the way of the caveman. get with e.t. and get back to me.

But for real talk Maxxxxxx. 20dix. Can you just go ahead and host your own tourney. It will be awesome! You can actually run the format however you like instead of insisting that everyone who is playing a double elim this season is somehow behind the times. I will be sure to show up and shit on everything you are doing. Or cheer, maybe I will cheer.

That will never work.

Or you can just get the three and a half dildos out of your ass and try to enjoy a different format than 98% of tournaments in the past.

Anal insertables will be mandatory during double elim in East Van's next tournament, it's the way of the future.

if you've never had a dildo in your butt, you're not livin'.

allahu akbar

so I talked with alias about single elim, it's not necessarily the best thing (like I was excited about it until George dropped a bag of dirty laundry on it) but maybe this will spark a conversation with Eugene Bike Polo, otherwise I'll show up with my skateboard. saw some instagram pics of the park which looks tight, but are the boards being rented or are they permanent fixtures? can you link a pic?

I actually had the idea of doing a best of 3 series last night. We'll talk it over and let you all know. The boards are a trial until October. They want to watch vandalism, vagrancy, and level of use. They are made of plastic, thick and bouncy. I can't upload a picture because currently, they are not up. There is still a bit of construction happening around the new skatepark and they are waiting until they are finished to put them up. We're looking at another two weeks until they will be up. This is going to be a great tournament with a lot of spectators. Bring your friends, bring your bikes, bring your game.

Bringing out a team from Olympia!

We will be the biggest trolls!

It's been two weeks, pics of the court?
did you confirm the format?

it's a tournament only a few hours away from your home. Is the format or court really going to prevent you from coming down and having fun? Let them do their thing.

We're getting them boards. Construction is finishing around the skatepark and we got clearance to start setting up the boards!

What type of material are these "hockey-grade plastic boards" made of? Everett Bike Polo is currently in the process of getting boards for our court and we're drafting up a proposal for the parks department.

I don't know what grade they are...I'll ask the city. All I do know is...THEY ARE UP. Saddle up Trolls, it's time to throw down!

On a side note. Campout has been cancelled. Too many cows and electric fences apparently. There will still be a rager (one keg of Ninkasi and workin' on a second), but let me know if you need a place. I'll remind you in your confirmation email.

anyone looking for a 3rd for this. My team prospects have fallen apart. Im also, already registered, for it.

we have a few stragglers in SEA that might be needing teams, Marco, Julien (new guy from Canada not Guardians' Julian), etc. drop a line and I'll let em know

Thanks Max! Not sure at the moment but I might have a team. I definitely have a 2nd, but I might need a 3rd as Ringer has not gotten back to me yet. I should see him tonite if not tomorrow. If I don't here from him by the weekend I'll hit you up.

Bummed about the campout cancellation! Going to need a place for 3 people to crash, we will have camping gear.

No problem...we'll getcha a place.
