The Wingman 4v4 Tournament

Saturday, June 23, 2012 - Sunday, June 24, 2012
Host club: 
COMOPOLO
Contact info: 
johnxathon@gmail.com
Court size: 
(just short of) Regulation NHL

4v4, get with the program "Format: Field". Our court is too big for 3 v 3 (or maybe it's just that we are too lazy) but either way we want to host a 4 v 4 tournament out at Cosmo Park!

The Details:
- Games will be played for 15 minutes with no point limit.
~ Skunk rule: If a team is up by 10 points after 8 minutes, then the game is over.
- All other rules will follow the most current NAH rule set.
- Saturday will be pool play and Sunday will be a double elimination tournament.
~ There will be 16 teams in the tournament with 4 teams in each pool.
= We will preseed the pools as evenly as possible.
~ Teams will play everyone in their pool, and the set-up will allow for AT LEAST 5 original games(not playing the same team twice).

Tell all your friends, get your teams together and come have some fun!

Sign ups will be on hardcourtbikepolo.org in the next week or so, keep your eyes peeled for more details! $40 a team (money going to food and prizes)

Location

Cosmo Park Columbia, MO

This is the size of our court! We are well conditioned. Trying to get a team together.

Glad we're not the only ones.

I honestly don't understand complaining about this court size. If anything, tiny courts suck the worst...can't even move around and have to use your brakes all the damn time...makes me so mad.

We love it. No one else uses it for 9 months, we have lights for free daily until 10:30. Our only complaint has to do with excessive speed + alcohol. Ask my dentist. Otherwise its a fun, long game.

picture or it didn't happen, Skunk! ;]

holy shit!

talk shit and burn bridges

4v4!! EVERYONE COME AND GET EXPERIMENTAL WITH YOUR BODIES!!

i love experimenting!

Would love to be there!

Fresno has a huge court like that. Hardly anyone played on it. 4v4 > 3v3 if the court is big enough and reclaimed tennis courts are not big enough.

we are working on getting a pickup court as well, it might be the dreaded Border Patrol, it might not. come hang!

Sweet, 4vs4 sounds amazing.

I will be there.

Quinn!??!? 'Como all over your face' would love to have you!!!!

Bike polo is the rollerblading of 2012

Anyone needs a 4th ? Aimee, Anchoives, should we do it again ?

i'll be there!!!! this is just after my family reunion lake o' the ozarks trip. whoot. single girl here (i am pretty fast, super strong defense) pick me up!!!

We played like this a bit on a big court and it was tight. the rule we played was any, one man behind your own blue line.

Ifuckinglovepolo

Yeah we were trying to think about positioning rules like this, our own offsides kind of thing. That's a pretty simple, good one. Roller hockey doesn't have blue lines though, hmm.. maybe use red dots instead.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
fixcraft.net

We use to only play 4v4 on a huge parking lot. One rule was the scoring team at least one had to circle behind their own goal before playing defence.

I have a team spot for you to consider.

Ben.Simon.STL (at) gmail (dot) com

Got a team y'all. Thanks for the invites though

"ok Mr. Schwinn fucking Armstrong!"
www.burrobags.com

so what's the word on fourthman specific rules? only three allowed past half at any one time? what's up? chicago wants to know.

As of right now there is no specific rule. I'm interested in seeing how people play with four up. This may or may not change.

321polo.net

Return to the motherland!

this just in, Gumby's pizza will be fully supplying the lunch for both days, this is turning out to be pretty badass! also, one spot has opened up, anyone wanna fill it?! Chicago, bring a few more!

the flier makes it look like the chicken wing is a dookie in the thumbnail.

still have room for one more team, does ANYONE know ANYONE who might know SOMEONE who will fill this spot? we may have 1 or 2 COMO people if you can't find a complete 4 person team!

Are the pools set up?

no, teams are ever changing, we are playing it by ear most likely until Friday.

So stoked for this.

this is going to be fucking dumb. i better get $10 worth of pizza.

My team dropped off. Who wants to pick me up ???

"ok Mr. Schwinn fucking Armstrong!"

i swear, I'm not from Lou.

Awful, at best.

maybe.

I am pretty sure I left a mallet at the tourney under te bleachers. It was a Fixcraft shaft with lime green grip and a grey cap, anyone grab it ??

"ok Mr. Schwinn fucking Armstrong!"

So who WON?

You make the rules, I'll play the game.

1st - Polorage-Ditka-Sports (Ryan, Chris, Greg, Tucker CHI)
2nd - Nellyvillians (Keaton, Nick COMO, Ben, Nick STL)
3rd - Petty Cash (Aaron, Charlie, Christian, Johnathon COMO)
4th - Team Sweet Skeet (James, Jessi, Quinn LEX, Matt LOU)
5th - Tree City Supreme (Travis, Zachary, Evan BLM, colin LEX)
5th - Reacharounds (Katherine, Nick, Tim, Nicholas COMO)
7th - Mighty Mankato (Kyle KATO, Kit MPLS)
7th - Shitty Dick Tits (Kyle, Brian, Vanessa ??, Dany MHK)
9th - Very Scary Larry (Peter, Spencer, Malakai, Josh LKS)
9th - Motherfuckers be Trippin (Jared FTL, Andy, Zachary, Jimmy LOU)
9th - Murder Death Execution Squad (Tim, Colleen, Andrew COMO, Jared LEX)
9th - Endless Bummer (Jeremy ??, Nathan, Nicholas, Drew COMO)

13th - Purple Popsicles (Chaney, Greg, Tommy, Joshuah MHK)

I'm really impressed our two man team did so well.

I'm not from Lou.

Awful, at best.

4v4 is mega rad. I suggest all you clubs with big courts give it a go. Less break aways on just a goalie, more 3 person passing plays, lower scores. It just looked like the right amount of people on the court to me, when on a 185'x85'.

Anyway, great seein' everyone. I had a blast.

4 v 4 is the future of bike polo. SO MUCH better than 3 v 3.

Big Tides!

Any video?

Hey folks, If anyone accidentally ended up with a pair of black Columbia flip-flops, I'd love to be reunited with them (as in would pay shipping and be really grateful)... they were last seen Saturday morning by the bleacher/stand thing. Thanks!
-Jamelyn

Crab shots.

Im pretty sure such big courts are not good at all to play 3-3, the game looks awfull on such big courts. Would love to see videos from a 4-4 tourney.

hahaha i had a fully charged GoPro in my bag the whole time....didn't shoot shit. I'm doing it wrong. Or, playing too much polo.

Sorry Clement, next time I'll remember to hit "record" a few times instead of hiding in a shade tent. We really do need more matches filmed.

Guess we gotta do this again. Shucks.

SHADE PEOPLE!

Bike polo is the rollerblading of 2012

look like shade... talk like people... shade people.

no video. sorry guys.

i really need to get one of those little 'flip' videocameras...

and here's my photos. not a lot but a few good ones, especially of lil' Lua and Jared!

This tournament was so much fun. The 4 v. 4 is an amazing format; it improved our team dynamic and is better for larger courts. Despite the 100 degree weather, I couldn't have had a better time. 4 v 4 Bench anyone? Lets blow this shit up!
