Mosh & Brew Cycle Crew's long-celebrated annual freakbike freakfest Moshtrocity is drawing near, and once again your friends at Cincinnati Hardcourt have decided to use it as an excuse to create a polo tournament. Not just any polo tournament, mind you, but a goddamned triathlon event bristling with shit-hot excitement!

In keeping with last year's "Best-of-Three" format, the tournament will be divided into the following team events: 1) a game of polo; 2) a game of foosball; and 3) a tiebreaker event to be determined. Last year it was flip-cup, this year, well....it could be anything.

The team that wins best out of the three events will win the matchup. Both the Swiss Rounds and the double-elim bracket will be done in this way.

That's right folks, it's the only polo tournament in the Midwest in which you don't actually have to succeed at polo to win!

To throw yet another wrench in the workings, points earned as a team in the Moshtrocity Scavenger Hunt happening Friday night will count towards Swiss Round standings in some yet-to-be-determined way. Attendance is optional, but in theory could make the difference in whether you make it to the bracket on Sunday.... so just do it, okay?

Here's the (tentative) schedule:

FRIDAY:
8:00PM-- Moshtrocity Scavenger Hunt
Whenever-- PARTY

SATURDAY:
9:00AM-- Swiss Rounds @ The Pool
3:00PM-- Cookout @ Fariview Park
4:00PM-- Moshtrocity ride + bike games commence!

SUNDAY:
11:00AM-- Moshtrocity Brunch
12 NOON-- Double-elim bracket @ The Pool

There are spots for 16 teams this year. Registration will be $15, starting Sunday, July 22nd at noon, by email to cincyhardcourt@gmail.com. Signup will be handled on a first come, first served basis (duh).

Between Cincinnati Hardcourt and Mosh & Brew, we should have plenty of housing for everyone. So come out and get wild at The Pool with us, fuck around on some freakbikes, and close out the summer polo season the right way!
