Royal Rumble V
March 31 - April 1
Your favorite Cascadia bike polo tournament is back for it’s fifth installment!
This year there will be one major difference from the previous years, and that is the registration process. We are headed back to Alberta Park this year (they weren’t happy with us at the two court spot last year, oops), so that means we will be restricted to 60 players. This tournament has definitely outgrown 60 players, but it’s all we have in Portland. With that said, there will not be a click race for spots; instead registration will be open from January 16th until February 1st. At this time, there will be a lottery for the 60 spots in the tournament. (The only exception is for organizers and last year’s winner, who will get automatic entry.) If there are less than 60 people signed up, then everyone will get in and remaining spots will be filled on a first come, first served bases.
There will be a raffle where we will be giving away donated prizes to lucky winners, and the raffle money will go to a local charity of Gavin’s choosing.
Also, a prize for best dressed will be given away!
Friday, March 30th: Reg Party TBA
Saturday, March 31st: Tournament starts at 9am sharp! We will do our best to get in 5 Swiss rounds, but that depends on all of you being on time and paying attention to when you’re up. Breakfast snacks and lunch provided. Party afterwards TBA.
Sunday: Double elimination tournament with teams based on player performance.
Just like last year, there is a strict no sandbagging rule in effect. Anyone caught purposely throwing games or inebriating themselves beyond function, will not be allowed to continue to play in the tournament, and will be asked to not return the next year.
