Without further ado I am pleased to announce we will be hosting the 4th annual Riverside Invite this year on May 17. As usual this will be a single day 16 team double elimination tournament that proceeds 3-4 swiss round seedings based on weather, and the efficiency of the day. As usual there will be pickup on Friday and Sunday at our pickup courts, and a wild after party following the tournament on Saturday, possibly with our beloved Captain Dangerous.
Registration will begin Saturday April 5 at 12:00 PM PDT, which is 3:00 PM EDT, on Podium at $10 per player. Slots will not necessarily be allotted on a first to register basis. We feel individuals that have
made an effort to attend our past tournaments should be rewarded with the
first spots, so we reserve the right to choose teams based on participation
in Lafayette tournaments. However, everyone is still highly encouraged to
apply. Due to the revamping of regions this season I would like to include those who are new to the Midwest regions that is Heartland. We will do our best to be as fair as possible when filling the slots.
