The FUCKIN TURDUCKEN

Saturday, November 10, 2012 - Sunday, November 11, 2012
Host club: 
Richmond Bike Polo

Court size: 
Small

We are one week out from this year's Turducken feast. Can't tell you guys how excited I am about this year's festivities. A couple of details:

-Friday around 9PM we will start the registration party at a local bar called Cous Cous (900 W Franklin St, Richmond). Here you will check in and receive your wristband for the tournament, find out your court location for Saturday (this will be posted as a doc by then as well) and start partyin. If you have extra people traveling with you, they can buy a wristband to get beer specials, VIP access to the Party Pimp Lounge and most importantly partake in the feast Sunday early evening.

-Saturday morning we will begin NO LATER THAN 10AM. This is a hard start time due to the expanded 32 team roster and our lack of lights. NOTE: There is a marathon happening in the city Saturday morning so if you are planning to drive from wherever you are staying to the courts you will have a difficult time getting from one end of the city to the other. Please ask one of us Richmonders the best way to get to where yer goin. Dont try to figure it out yourself cuz the road blocks WILL fuck you and then I have to DQ you from a game or some bullshit and that's not what this tournament is about so just be on time.

-The best local roaster (Baby Joey) and his squad at Lamplighter Roasting Company will be providing tasty treats at both court locations to help you wake up but I suggest picking up some food prior to showing up at the courts.

-Our local bike courier/delivery service, Quickness, will be available to deliver foods and such from local spots if you are unable to pull away from the tournament or have someone run out to get you food. You can check them out and bookmark their site here:
http://quicknessrva.com/

-We will have super comfortable Turducken T-shirts designed by Neva Safe's Alexis Mabry for sale as well. With a wristband they are an affordable $10; without they are $15.

-Below is a google doc with housing details. If yer name is not on there its because I didn't know you need housing. Email me and I will do my best to hook you up.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkMTxrBA-21UdHZ4VFYyQy1nTDh...

-We will more than likely get some pick up going Friday afternoon for those of you interested. We don't have lights and the sun is setting around 7pm these days. Keep this in mind.

Registration Details can be seen within the forum still.

aka "Lomax's Birthday Tournament." I'll be there, I will find a way.

i expect this tournament will be less fun, less polo, less food, less awesome, and fewer tricks than any previous years.

Alex and I are looking for a third.

(email alias.s.tagami@gmail.com)

Combination of choice: Smash + Bang

just emailed you. still looking? or anyone else for that matter?

talk shit and burn bridges

Bump.

Alex and I are registered and still looking for a third. Email above.

Combination of choice: Smash + Bang

I can be a third dude.

We got a team of two trying to scoop a third. hit me up if you hate winning, enjoy fighting with your team, big disappointments, wild shots, inability to stop goals or hate freedom.

mostly joking.... mostly

Inticing. Do you guys hate getting intoxicated, banging Richmond sluts (Ben Zoller), and eating meat?

Because if you do. I'm down.

eeeeeeeee!

vegan straight edge.

You found a third yet? I am the VS your looking for.

Registration is full! If you want to get on a waiting list I will accept emails regarding so still. Here is a spreadsheet displaying all of the 32 teams registered. There are still a good number of "TBA" third team members so if you are looking to tag on to a team I would hit those people up.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkMTxrBA-21UdDEtbWUzcFBTTXR...

SQUAD UP!

I may be a free agent for this tournament. Just putting my name out there in case anyone is looking for a team mate.

Jimmy and I may be looking for a third. But we are a couple of jackasses.

assjackes

Awful, at best.

hemersly! you wanna do this? I won't get totally drunk til after our games

talk shit and burn bridges

I kinda feel the same way, Im going to focus mostly on organizing and helping run this tournament but if a dope team needs a third I will play.

I just wanna watch

free agent

Awful, at best.

please?

Awful, at best.

down to play and break shit as a free agent.

edit: break shit and play. in that order. and not really free... dignity costs.

FUCK cant believe this shit is full, anymore spots opening up, might have two ringers from TO looking for teams, let me know if any yall looking

if you can guarantee me a win, just one, i'll drop one of my teammates.

Adam TO, Patti TO and Greg Russo would like to send a very classy team to this tournament, any spots opening up we got lots of money

30 seconds! This game is boring! Adam wants to play!

ErMehGerd! Pittsburgh Greg Russo? Be my third!

There's a major Russo boner in this thread.

Combination of choice: Smash + Bang

Thank you! As Mr. Russo is not a facebook nerd, I answer his calls, team mate requests, and various other whatnots... it's enough to give a guy a complex! Same for the other PGH Greg, actually. I might be polo's first talent agent.

The spacebar. The difference between: "team mate requests" and "teammate requests."

One is an appeal for a person to join a team. The other is a form of ceremonial courtship that concludes in group breeding/intercourse.

But if you are farming Russo out, I'm sure DC would break a few piggy banks for a pure breed.

no he was accurate with his grammar.

Yes to patty Adam and Greg. They are my ride!

i vote for adam, greg and patti to play in turducken

I also vote for Patti Greg and Adam to play

I heard this wasn't going to be a very good tournament, so at least three teams should probably drop out.

RVA - what about having more teams play?
36 teams?

don't listen to her. just put Russo on Turds of Misery and call it a day.

talk shit and burn bridges

Our 3rd ben dropped from Matt, Ben and devin. So we picked up tiff from lex. That should open up a team spot, her team originally has split up.

Two things:
1) I won't be extending the number of teams unless we feel it is something we are capable of handling. This tournament has always been a 24 team maximum because we pride ourselves on everyone getting to play 8-12 games on Saturday. Extending it to 32 teams is going to make this more difficult to accomplish.

2) Tiff's team did drop and you will see an updated list on the spreadsheet. Johnny Crash's squad has been added to the tournament unless for some reason his team is unable to make it then it will go to the next team on the waiting list. I am awaiting confirmation on this right now.

SQUAD UP!

Putting this out there: Midwestern Lefty free agent looking for a team. Any takers?

coffee, whiskey, beer. repeat.

emailed you, let me know if you're interested

Ya'll got any work down there? I was lookin at moving to another tournament... I don't need to play, just like get kicked out of bars, creep on jail bait, puke so hard I rupture my gullet and give the state wrestling champ an atomic wedgie...

What is the cheapest airport to fly into from Cascadia? If its your city can i snag a ride?

How does a back bacon eating Canadian get on a straight edge vegan team anyhow??

oh shit, wrecked again!

Just bring that chainsaw Woadie... and you'll find work....

oh shit, wrecked again!

I'm looking to play if anyone still needs a third!

If you can dream it, you can do it!

goddamnit bob! didn't we just discuss this? hold your fucking water. i love you

talk shit and burn bridges

I would love to play, anyone need a Viking?

u mad bro?

anybody need a third?

Alright... Fine. I GUESS I'll come and be on team "not playing but going to drink and heckle everyone who is playing". I GUESS I'll get to see a lot of awesome polo folks that I've been missing terribly since I moved. GAH, EXASPERATED NOISES.

That being said... if anyone ends up needing a 3rd, I'd be really, really stoked to play too :D

Crab shots.

Is there going to be ample opportunities for pickup? Ive got some folks who want to go, but dont have a team.

Two courts on Sunday will be dedicated to pick up. However, these courts are about a 10 minute bike ride from where the tournament games as well as the bmx comp will be happening on Sunday. No reason you cant go over there and get a couple hours in. Im sure others that don't make it to Sunday will be wanting to do the same.

SQUAD UP!

Two pick up courts? Brilliant. So stoked.

Combination of choice: Smash + Bang

I had a team dropout and am waiting to here back from Dirks. If I do not get a response from his squad in the next day I will continue on down the list until a waiting team can confirm. Hope everyone is looking forward to how fun this is gonna be.

SQUAD UP!

the teams look incredible

I'll be selling DZR kicks for 25% off

I'll buy a pair of 44's off you for $Free.99. Its a helluva deal.

SQUAD UP!

So a friend of mine happens to be driving from Washington to Here, If I came all the way across the country and showed up Saturday ready to play what do you think the chances are that someone might be looking for a dark-horse third

hey is there electricty at the courts for pick up? i have some shop lights that i would be happy to bring.

There isnt electricity at the main courts (Abner Clay Park) but the other location that will be used on Saturday in Church Hill (at the corner of 29th and M St) I believe has an electrical outlet

SQUAD UP!

truly wish i could be there. miss you dudes, enjoy the meats.

Hi hello

If your team name is not listed in the registration doc and you would rather your clever name not be reduced to a random number for the weekend please let me know what you want to be called.

i was just surprised with how well they were done. not trying to second guess anything!

For those of us coming down 95 Saturday morning, what's the best route to get to Church Hill? Also what's the address for Church Hill?

Thanks!

Church Hill Courts are located near the intersection of M street and N 29th Street. Searching for Ethel Bailey Furman Park or George Mason Elementary would also get you there.

OK so it looks like the marathon is well north and west of there.

Thanks again.

you should be fine coming south to Church Hill. Marathon wont be up that way.

SQUAD UP!

Hey peoples, gonna be running a tight schedule at the courts on Saturday. I'll be at Abner Clay starting the first round of games at 10:15am. I will unfortunately, definitely forfeit games to teams that are absent. Incomplete teams will play a man/woman (or two) down until their teammates arrive. Please be on time and dont leave the courts unless you are positive you'll be back on time, standard operating procedure. You'll need to know your teams corresponding number as that is how we'll announce the matches. I know this has been posted but I just want reiterate. The following teams are at abner clay:

1. Nate Ben zack
2. Bourbonic SteezCody Cardinal Red Beard
3. BabyfaceJt Dillman Kremin
4. Lomax Biddle Gt
5. Tom Tyler Mike
6. Gobble Politics Steve Z Shelly James
7. Jonny Crash Luke AB
8. Turds of Misery Jimmy Zach Bob
9. Fire and Blood Adam Jarred Ali
10. Crosshairs Sean Sean Kevin
11. Donkey Punch Anne Jason Andrew
12. Get In Eric Christina Quinn
13. Jorts Robo Matt Matt
14. Jessie Colin Peter
15. David Zeb Mikey
16. Bash Bros Tony Dustin Elton

And the first round goes as follows:
1 v 9, 2 v 10, 3 v 11, 4 v 12, 5 v 13, 6 v 14, 7 v 15, 8 v 16

See ya buds

Also there will be a keg of craft beer at each court tapped at noon. Please keep it on the down low and drink any libations out of the provided cups.

Heads up, our third player may have to back out, due to a family emergency. If this is the case, I'm hoping some random extra people are around to fill a spot this weekend.

Did yoy guys have a nice tournament?

Many thanks to the organizers and home team, it was a great time.

In the coming days I will post some pictures from the tourney.

Here are some shots from the tourney. Just note that I am aware of the fixcraft ad popping through selected photos (if you save them for your own use, it won' be there). Hopefully I can get that resolved shortly either way.

At any rate, had a great time and was super impressed with the organizers. What a blast!

Sad to see so many bros leave but until next time. Also I found a bern helmet with a fix craft sticker on it. If anyone is missing that, let me know.

SQUAD UP!

Thank you and all of RVA for doing it huge again and again. Consistently one of the best tournaments of the year across the board... hospitality, organization, tight games, the best hangouts, and the chillest vibe for a super-competitive, high stakes tournament. Extra respect for Sean running Abner like a pro both days. Endless love and respect for Baines. Best host, hands down.

Thanks for a great weekend, everyone.

^ All This ^ Baines you keep a lovely home and I appreciate the hospitality.

Another awesome Turducken, thanks to RVA! I just added some photos to the archive, pretty much just the last three games (3rd place and the two finals), plus the prizes.
