SPRING AND A MISS
It's Bike Prom, so we're throwing a tournament. It's going to be a one day affair, with teams will be made the morning of. The format is round robin, with points tallied at the end, and a final between the top teams. There are two steps to coming:
1) Send us an email using the contact form, giving your name, your level of play (ABC), and whether or not you will need housing.
2) Be at the tennis courts 10am sharp. No cap on the number of teams, we will use the Fernwood Community Center court just down the road if we have overflow.
The tournament is going to cost five clams, and will include all the stuff that you love coming to Victoria for, like BBQ and coffee and maybe some beer if we can swing it. Capital City Cycles is once again throwing down with some prizes, and while it will be more relaxed than our also fairly relaxed Winter Mixer, y'all should expect some sweet polo action, as teams compete for the welded bike part trophies that Ryan so lovingly fashions. There will be pickup Friday night and Sunday during the day.
As mentioned, this tournament coincides with the Bike Prom, which is the biggest party of the year. Tickets for that are ten dollars, and they will be reserved for you if you're coming over. That ticket will get you into an art show and party on Friday night, the big party on Saturday night, and also a pancake breakfast that will coincide with the pickup on Sunday.
It's going to be a sweet weekend people! Book the time off, tell your friends, it's the best weekend of the year to come and see our fair city.
