hell yeah, me and big dog gonna school james and the giant peach.

Just checked, it's 990 miles...

 

Let me talk to some people. 

----------------------------------

Moooooo!

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

I'm trying to get a team together, I've gone one other so far, we're looking for a solid third that can make the trip.

 

One question though.  I was reading the East Van myspace and it said they did the 360 thing for dabbing... do you guys still do that? 

 

----------------------------------

Moooooo!

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

we are slowly converting to tap outs. seattle and portland now seem to be the last two holdouts on the 360 rule. also, please note that this is a TWO on TWO tournament. sounds like ya may already have a team!

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

Two on two, wow, let me see if I can get two teams. 

 

I really hope we can make it. 

 

----------------------------------

Moooooo!

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

Hey, we heard that you can't come into Canada if you've been convicted of a DUI.  Is that true.  Not me or my teammate, but a possible third which would lead to a fourth. 

 

----------------------------------

Moooooo!

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

when we crossed into canada all they did was look at our driver's licences, no passports, only a couple of questions.  I wouldn't worry too much about it.  use a lightly travelled crossing and you will probably have the most luck.

 

 

you most likely will need a birth certificate if you are driving or a passport if you are flying.

We're driving, 990miles is a good long drive but the signs look like we can make it.

 

Will they be testing for EPO for the tourney? I plan to start my doping schedule to peak for the tourney.

 

----------------------------------

Moooooo!

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

yes, remember that there must be dope in your system at the tourney or you will be disqualified.  hope that when you piss in the cup there are roaches and stems in there.  and, as always, not drinking is cheating.

crossing the border by land only requiers drivers license(or other government issued photo id) and birth certifacate for the time being. if you are using a passport that is expired have your birtrh certifacate as well. i am not sure about the dui thing but they might want to check the canada customs website http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/noncan-eng.html

Do I need to prereg for this or I can I just show up the day of the tourney?  Everything looks to be coming together and it looks like we can make the trip. 

 

----------------------------------

Moooooo!

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

you'll want to let us know that you're coming so that we can treat you like the esatern gods that you are... ...but it's pretty low-key and you've got lots of time. 

Eastern?  I'm down south in central caliornia.  I'm driving straight up I-5 until I get to the border then I'll keep following the signs.

 

 

 

----------------------------------

Moooooo!

Moooooo!

i stand corrected:  you'll want to let us know that you're coming so that we can treat you like the southern gods that you are... ...but it's pretty low-key and you've got lots of time.  

get ahold of me and we'll hook ya up with a place to stay:

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

Sorry won't be there for the twos. But when is the cascadia fall classic happening? I want to be there for that.

i'll keep ya posted.

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

Victoria Bike Polo has decided to condescend to leaving their island fortress, and it looks like to sortie will be significant. So far it looks like 4 teams will be crossing the moat, that is, as long as no one gets eaten by the crocodiles during the crossing. Please notify the brass band and ready the 21 gun salute for our arrival, and I'll spike the tea.

email me a list of people who need places to stay so that i can coordinate all dat. werd. also, don't worry 'bout the tea. r&b is sponsoring us with cheap ass beer.

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

I should have a better idea after tonight, and I'll keep prodding the rest. I'm really trying to get some of the newer folks to think about coming out but so far people are still kind of reluctant to commit. The cheap ass beer makes for a good carrot though!

- I don't get these silly fools though. I'm still wondering longingly if I can afford to fly to the NSPI's on friday, and some people can't be bothered to leave their own backyard... 

fools...

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

I just keep enjoying the fact that gas prices seem to be going down. 

 

----------------------------------

Moooooo!

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

certainly will give you more money to buy our beer, doughnuts, and maple covered rcmp officers with beaver heads...eh?

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

is that a fucking mallet tatoo'ed on you arm?  you are so hardcore martin.  who is your second?  do you even need a second for this tourney?

i plan to take y'all down by myself. just trying to even the playing field.

just kidding. mvp and i gonna represent. y'all better recognise!

yeah. the mallet was drawn by polly and inked by theresa of electroladylux back in december. how could you not have seen it until now?!?!?!? too busy checkin' out my ass i suppose....i don't blame you....

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

yes martin, for the past six months i've been too busy checking out your ass.

Talked to my partner today and everything is still on... any idea of how many teams are going to be entered and what type of tourney... bracket, round robin?

p>----------------------------------
Moooooo!

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

over twenty teams so far!!

everything will be round robin until about 6:00 at which point the top 8 teams advance for single elimination.

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

Well, I was supposed to leave this afternoon, got the day off of work tomorrow, put in for it last week, but earlier today my teammate just informed me he's not going.

Sorry to say, I'm out of the tourney now.

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

you will be missed kg.
My only suggestion is to club this person over the head, put them in the truck and drive hell for leather up the I5 towards the Canadian border.

I'm most pissed that he waited so long to tell me.

I actually teach high school and with the help of my students, I have a pay back planned.

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

----------------------------------
Moooooo!

okay, here's the update from the tourney.

it was an awesome day of round robin. 21 teams and each team played 7 games. we then went to an 8 team single elimination bracket. we had cheap beer, sun stroke, free spoke cards and almost everyone got a prize for their $5. here's the damage:

1st: Seattle Stars (Soren and Leon)- Seattle
2nd: Aces High (Martin and Alex) - East Van
3rd: 2 Live Crew (Adam and Ken)- East Van

MVP - Soren (Seattle)
Most Inspirational - Sean (Calgary)
Best Crash - Martin (East Van)
Best Injury - Bob (East Van)
Best Goal - tie Soren and Martin (Seattle and East Van)

What I was most stoked about was that Calgary brought 8 teams! what the fuck? so awesome to play with all those new players. so awesome in fact that ken, rory and myself are heading to the ramsey bowl in september.

A big thank you to everyone who helped with the tournament. Lora, Ken and James: You made this tournament happen. Thanks to the court officials: Lisa (EV) and Chris (Vic), you two single handedly kept courts A,C, and D running smoothly. Thanks to Donald for his barbeque bike and the homemade chainwhip as a prize! Thanks to everyone for keeping things clean and helping with teardown/cleanup at the end of the day.

A huge thanks to Alex for making one of the most beatiful trophies I have ever seen (we almost had it buddy!). and thanks to leon and soren for sharing a beer with me from the cup. you two ARE stars!

If anyone has pictures of the cup or from the tourney please post them - or links to them - here.

Hey Martin,

Can you post top eight finishes? I hear they all got prizes, so why not recognize??

Had a great day, super last minute for me. Thanks to Bob and Faron for trading up and being part of the Triplets of East Van. Sorry I couldn't be there until the end. Great cake!! I love carrots. Thanks for hosting the party James! Props to Martin and Lora for a super smooth tournie.

Kisses to Calgary - thanks for entertaining me a few weeks back and for bringing half the teams.
Apologies to the two dudes I took out - I am unscathed, surprisingly!

Oh, I love and hate you Leon and Soren. Good games. We'll get that trophy back come hell or high water.

Cheers,
L'il Miss Used

P.S. Drunkie was texting me all night for updates - he's jonezin'

I didn't post all top 8 teams cause I don't have the list of all their names. I have the team names but am unsure who all played on those teams (specifically the 8th place team). Here is the best I can do:

1st: Seattle Stars (Soren and Leon)- Seattle
2nd: Aces High (Martin and Alex) - East Van
3rd: 2 Live Crew (Adam and Ken)- East Van
4th: Triplets of East Van (Bob, Faron, Lisa - rotated) - East Van
5th: Team Helmet (Lee and Ryan) - Victoria
6th: All Balls No Joint (Rory and Justin) - East Van
7th: Gruesome Twosome (James and Lora) - East Van
8th: Coolest Guys Ever (Justin and ?) - Calgary

Justin, forgive me...
