Rose City Royal Rumble

Rose City Royal Rumble
Saturday, March 22, 2014 - Sunday, March 23, 2014
Host club: 
Portland Bike Polo
Contact info: 

Stealing from the genius that is Decatur's Gene Fruit, we are hosting Portland's first single player tournament.

This two day Royal Rumble will consist of Swiss rounds on Saturday and a double elimination tournament followed by a knife fight on Sunday.

Five Swiss Rounds will be played, during which each player's team will be randomly put together (with the help of Podium) before the beginning of each round. Players will earn 3 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, and 0 points for a loss. At the end of the Swiss Rounds players will be ranked based on win/loss points, with the total number of goals scored by their teams used as a tie breaker.

Using these rankings, teams will be created for the Double Elimination on day two. Winning teams will continue to stay together, while players falling into the losers bracket will (potentially) get shuffled into new teams.

At the end of the Double Elimination tournament, there will be a three-way knife fight to determine who is the Rose City Royal Rumble champion!

There will be a CASH PRIZE for the winner, as well as prizes for the other two finalists, and maybe even more! Who knows!?!

***There will also be a prize for the best dressed, so be sure to channel your inner pro-wrestler and find an outfit that matches!***

To participate in the Rose City Royal Rumble, all you have to do is send an email to xaaronhandx@gmail.com with:

1) Your Name
2) Your City
3) Which nights you'll need housing.

Once your email is received, you will get a reply with information on how to pay. The tournament will cost $15 a person to help us cover insurance, permit fees, and DA CASH PRIZE!

Registration is open now so get those emails out!

Signed up

fuckin a serpent slaughter


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

Already a third full after 2 days; don't snooze on signing up for this!


POLOMANIA!!!! Do we have 60 players now and if yes can you post the list of player/city?

You make the rules and I'll play the game.

Only 8 spots left, so we will be announcing the line up soon! Picture all the greats from WCW, WWF, WWE, and ECW all on one polo court, that's basically what the line up is looking like! Get Stoked!


With only 1 spot left, I figured I'd release the lineup thus far to help encourage the slayer to sign up!




The tournament is now full!

Players have until the end of the month (January 31st, two weeks from today) to pay. Failure to pay will result in forfeiting your spot to players on the waiting list. Registered players, check your email for payment information.

Thank you all!


Do we all get Wrestler counterparts for this tournament? Cause I'd like to work on a good outfit.

I try to focus on the important things.

I was thinking of giving a prize to the person that has the best wrestler costume. Bonus points given to those who not only dress up, but take on the wrestlers persona.


Dibs on Rick Flair because I already yell woooo! whenever I score.

Anyone got a sequin bodysuit I can borrow?

It's all about the rob, the feather boa and the strut for him.


Edit: I'm an idiot... You still have a week to pay.


it says jan 31 earlier in the thread for payment.

Thank you for pointing that out, I'm a complete dumb dumb...


In case anyone is still trying to figure out which pro wrestler to dress like for the Rose City Royal Rumble, here is a little help!



I got Stone Cold Steve Austin, thats funny.

Yo Dawg I heard you like redundancies so we got a PIN number for your PIN

So, If I was going to take this way to seriously the best thing to do would be get black out drunk saturday by about 11 and bring my ranking down as low as possible for Sunday?

As mentioned above, Sunday teams will be based on Saturday performance. So Team A will be players ranked 1, 2, 3. Team B will be players ranked 4, 5, 6. And so on and so on.

So, in my opinion, it's not best to aim for the bottom on Saturday.


Jacki and I are flying out of seattle monday morning. Any seattle slayers have room for us? We will make it worth yer while

Beard Fear!

Git down here, Shitty! Jacki you too! I have room for ya if you need.

My outfits are probably going to be less wrestler attire and more ridiculous lycra I own, which I'm assuming is ok.

isn't that what wrestlers from the eighties wore? i mean whatever you bring just rock it and plan to have a good time! less the fun police come and tell you that if you aren't having enough fun you gots to go!

I'm going to make a video and put it on vine or instagram tonight. Can't wait. two days!

I do. it's in the polo haus basement, go by and grab it. it also has time pedals on it for easy shoe travel. I'll be at work at the ccc all day on friday so you could come by and ask me stuff if you have any questions, like where is polo haus? or how do I get into the basement? or what does the bike look like?

I'm pretty sure I forgot my bag at the court, possibly on the side of the street where I parked as I was loading my car (like an idiot). Anyone seen a gray chrome backpack?

It's portland, it wil be there in the morning with a note on it, "please don't steal this bag, thanks!"

My cup runeth over with blood and not wine

I hope that's how it ended.

Woke up today, sore all over and eating a voodoo doughnut for the third day in a row. Pretty happy about this tournament. Thanks to all of Portland Bike Polo, to the people who conceived and threw this thing and all of the players who did what it took to make the home club look good. Amazing job and a standing ovation for you all.

This format was amazing, make it a yearly thing.


THANK YOU PORTLAND, Aaron and Vince!!!! Eugene had a blast.


"Never dab alone!" (Thanks Aaron and portland. It was great to see you all!)

Great job Portland! Can't wait for the next tourney down there.

My only disappointment is that Mick missed going from DFL to Champ by one goal.

Fucking BLast Portland Brothers and Sisters! Thanks for being you and open minded!! and……..bubble, bubble, bubble but!!!!!! bubble but!
