SF Ball Whackers' Halloween Ball
Here we go Whackers
Team estimates have dropped to 20 teams and a couple of stragglers. Still a big turn out.
To make this an even better event, SF Bike Polo has covered all out of towner’s registration fees. You still have to register.
Crack team of crackheads---Check
We will be setting up at Youngblood park. There are two courts, which we will set up banked corners, backboards and boards where needed. The stadium seating makes for a great venue.
LOOSE CANNONS—If you need a team, let us know ASAP. First come, first serve. Polo Joel is Matchmaker. He has several posts.
This will be a two-day tournament with round robin sat. and a double-elimination on sun. Here is what is going on.
