aaaah problem with firefox...ok

now, registered (i think!!!!)..... 30!!

Hi everybody ! I'm really really really happy to see how many teams want to play at ROOF TOP ! This is great !

As we have only two courts I must limit the number of teams at 48. By doing this, we will have to start the swiss rounds on Friday, so please plan to arrive in Lausanne on friday afternoon. Teams who allready know they won't be able to do this please let me know.

CHEERS

Team Sophie - Switzerland

so 48 teams in Swiss Rolls, you will need to do 6 rounds to do the qulification

48 x 6 = 288 games

how long each game??????

imagine 12 min + 2 for change teams + some mechanical problem + any eventualities

288games x 14min = 4032min

4032min / 60min = 67h of polo aprox

67h / 2 courts = 33h per court saturday and sunday

and this is only the qualification, now the finals...

how many teams on the finals???? 16????

in the web page you say that the final will be at 17:30h, so until what time can we use tha courts??? do they have lights???

more...

as you are using Swiss Rolls, you can not start the second round until all the games from the frist has happen, so you need all the teams there, you can not start on friday!!!! even if you have some teams there

why all this????? because i think you can not have 48 teams

frist you say that it will be only 32 teams, then 40 and now 48.... do the maths

please anwser me this questions

how long will be every game??
how many teams in the finals?
from what time to what time can we use the courts?
do the courts have lights?

Don't bite off more than you can chew and Don't spread yourself too thin

Rik
Berlin Bike Polo 2010
London Bike Polo 2008 - 2010

courts avaiable for use from 8am to 10pm. If we start on friday at 1pm = friday 9 hours + saturday 14 hours = 23 hours

4 groups of 12 teams

10 minutes games. 5 minutes between each game. 6 SR per group.

1 SR = 6 x 10 minutes + 5x 5 minutes = 60 + 25 = 85 minutes (say 90 minutes)

6 SR = 6 x 90 = 540 = 9 hours

4 groups = 4 X 9 = 36 hours

As we have 2 courts we need 18 hours to do the SR for 4 groups.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I do my best.

Team Sophie - Switzerland

I really think you should cap it at 40 teams
4 groups for 10, and make games longer than 10min

Rik
Berlin Bike Polo 2010
London Bike Polo 2008 - 2010

I understand your point Rik. But it's hard to say : "Sorry, you can't come because we want to play 12 minutes more than if you come."

And, if nobody can come to Lausanne on friday morning, it's clear that 48 teams is impossible to manage.

I think also that the guys who registered after n°32 will be happy to play 10 minutes games rather than not playing at all.

So please Rik, be a little patient and indulgent, it's hard to make everybody happy.

Team Sophie - Switzerland

it is not "Sorry, you can't come because we want to play 12 minutes more than if you come"

it is, "this tourney is cap to 32 teams, first came fist serve"

so what happen that is 60 teams want to came, you will say yes to the 60 teams??????

most of the tourneys are capped, no one mind, if you are not quick you dont get to go.... no big deal!!

why people didnt register 1 month ago????

Rik
Berlin Bike Polo 2010
London Bike Polo 2008 - 2010

Rik, I'm fed up with your harsh critics that make me look stupid. We don't know each other well enough to have discussions on this level of agressivity. So if you want to help, you're welcome, but please be carefull to the way you express your advices.

Team Sophie - Switzerland

You're right, it's hard to make everyone happy. Better to try make most people (those who register on time) very happy, by having decently long games, and a less stressful schedule. Plus you'll be happier and more relaxed as an organizer.

you should be the one thinking on that frase: "it's hard to make everybody happy", because it is you the one who want to make everybody happy... you can not!!!

and yes, "guys who registered after n°32 will be happy to play 10 minutes games", but not the 32 teams that register on time... WTF!

you are basing your calculation on having 24 teams on friday, this was not say when registration open, if you dont have them, things wont work

it is your first tourney, dont complicate yourself

Rik
Berlin Bike Polo 2010
London Bike Polo 2008 - 2010

you can 48 teams in 5 swiss rounds rounds if you use accelerated pairings.

But even with lights, i agree that you should cap it at 40 teams if you only have two courts.

thanks for your input kev. Why do you think that lights could influence the number of teams ?

Team Sophie - Switzerland

Um, because lights allow you to play longer?

We ran a 20 team tournament in Toronto, with lights, on one court. But it was really maxed out. Without lights, 16 teams per court for two days is fine. With lights, 20. But 24 is stretching it, unless you a) have short games b) want everyone to be really tired, especially your organizers, c) don't care about going out to party after, or finishing late at night sunday.

Sorry, I thought it was clear that there are lights (big stadium like lights) on the courts.

I know it's probably too ambitious to have 48 teams, especially when considering the fact that this will be our first tournament. So I'will finally limit to 42 teams.

Thanks for your constructive arguments.

Team Sophie - Switzerland

When do you think games have to start with 42 teams? still friday? you wrote 1pm earlier for 48 team, I dont think I can get there before 4pm.

The Bisons;

Hi zerge ! I don't know yet. I'll tell you asap. But it should be okay.

Hello,
We're coming from Brussels (L'amicale).
Sorry but I can't find fresh news about the tournament, specially :
- when do we have to be there ?
- where is it ?
- Is there a place to put a tent or a van for sleeping ? De have to book a camping ?

Cheers and thanks a lot for the organisation.

karlsruhe will join the camping village! maybe two caravans / tents!

Polovillage is at http://www.campinglausannevidy.ch/ You just have to tell them that you come for the bike polo tournament and the will show you the places.

Looking forward to see you all in Lausanne !

is there a (free) car park?

Yorgo

in downtown Lausanne, you won't find any free car park. Best is P+R parking at La Pontaise : http://www.geodruid.com/intl/en/place/386752-p-r-velodrome-de-la-pontais...

parking is free on sundays

Team Sophie - Switzerland

there is always a free car park for the inventor of bikepolo, yorgo... ;)

WE NEED TWO TEAMS FOR GROUP D !
