The Frozen Louis Indoor Bike Polo Tournament
Why Frozen Louis, you ask? Well, the weekend just so happens to be a holiday celebrating a Manitoban folk hero by the name of Louis Riel: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_riel
When it gets this cold outside, even your spit will freeze.
Registration is $50 per team. You'll have to split that up unevenly amongst yourselves. Register at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ZB-C57A68y108tjCyMIIMHgvzSv_4Vq2QI5CZ1N...
Swiss rounds on Saturday from 10am to 8pm.
Double elimination bracket Sunday 10-8.
Registration party, sweet Saturday Night party and after party. A couple meals will be served per day. All included in the entry fee.
p.s. - also happens to be the week of the International Winter Cycling Congress (http://wintercyclingcongresswinnipeg.org/). Plus Friday is Winnipeg's Winter Bike to Work Day (http://winterbiketoworkday.org/) and Saturday is Ice Bike 2014 (http://www.prairiethunder.cc/), an annual outdoor cyclocross-style race on the river. Lots to do when you come visit sunny Winnipeg!
