***** UPDATE!!!! SWISS ROUND ROBINS ON SATURDAY WILL BE DONE IN 2 GROUPS, REGISTER EARLY TO PICK AM OR PM BRACKET*****

Email Kiersten your Teammates and Team names to Register

Since this is a combined event with Messquerade Scavenger Hunt and Part we have a few different Registration options:

$40 gets you the Tournament, Scavenger Hunt, Party, and a Hoodie Sweatshirt
$30 gets you the Tournament, Scavenger Hunt, and Party
$20 gets you the Tournament and the Party
$15 gets you the Tournament only.

(By paying for the Party with the Tournament you save $5 on tournament registration)

The night was dark, the weather dreary, the bikes were out the players weary...

Okay, so that rhyme was lame but this tournament won't be! Come celebrate Messman's tenth Messquerade with a two day double elimination polo tournament in beautiful Seattle, Washington. Arrivals on Friday will be able to play pickup with the 206 Crew whilst the barbecue roars and the beer flows. Housing needs will be taken care of, whether that means beds, couches, floors or tents, you will have a free place to stay within riding distance of everything! Saturday will be daytime seeding and Saturday night will be the notorious...Messquerade!! That's right, a polo tournament with a kick ass party built in. Be warned though, just because you're up until the sun rises doesn't mean anyone will go easy on you come Sunday.

Kiersten is handling HOUSING and REGISTRATION. Please contact me directly to get yourselves set up. Housing is already in the works. I'll let you know when your spot has been set up.

If you aren't sinning, Jesus died for nothing.

alright. you're with me.

Um...dibs as well?

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

you coming for sure? then we'll get you a couch.

Not sure yet. Would need to find a team.

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

Are there any couches left?

there may not be a couch, but there is a nice floor for you and if you don't have a sleeping pad, i'm sure they're fairly inexpensive used!

i mean, we could probably wrangle a pad and bag if you need but there will be a space for you indoors near a flush toilet and someone will most likely befriend you and make sure you're taken care of.

Awesome, floorspace works for me. I've got the bag and pad covered.

this is our tripple crown tourney kakaw!!!

So, uh, free agent time?

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

You and me baby!

6 from Victoria (Henry, Valley, Luke, Naomi, Anthony, ___ )

hey y'all who's got a single spot to fill on their team? I just was able to get off work.

4 years playing
i'd rate myself an upper level B player
fast, nimble, very good bike handling
decent ball handling
good close/techy shots
blah long shots
good d
decent goalie

let me know so I can decide whether I need to plan for bringing up to polobike too! see yallz at the messquarade!

for those of you checking this before you head down here...shoot me a text or email with your plans. i'll be central contact/coodinator and will vector you to the places you need to be...

Naomi and Cara and I are driving down tomorrow, hoping to arrive by 2ish. Should we just go straight to the mansion? Or is there a different place we should head to?

2pm you say? Great! Come straight to the mansion and help me chop onions!

dry your eye little guy.

Ok guys, this is what I've got so far, everything is still subject to change but I think this is pretty close to what will happen.

Each group will play 4 rounds of 12 min games Swiss Round style. If things are going well we might get a 5th round in. Please be ready for your games since we don't have lights and it will be too dark to play by 5:30pm!! Any team not ready to play on time will forfeit their game! I'm serious about our tight schedule.

The Messquerade registration starts at 6pm at Collanade, and the race starts at 8pm. If we stay on schedule we all have plenty of time to change into costumes and party a bit before the race.

I've built the groups on first come first serve basis, with some adjustments for skill dispersal and to make sure cities aren't playing themselves. I made up some team names for people who don't have them yet (blame the cough syrup). Those can be changed easily if you come up with something.

AM GROUP: first games start at 10AM sharp! (be at the court by 930)
-The Red and the Boos (Victoria): Henry, Luke, Andres
-Team Bike Works (W.Sea): Miranda, Nick, Sterling
-West Side Story (Sea): Messman, Liza, Koyo (W.Sea)
-Team Smile (Sea): Leon, Dustin, Sebastien
-Cindy Lauper Dies Tonight (Sea): Polony, Rowdy, Andre
-Lycanthropes (Sea): Medic Mike, Wade, Cherri
-The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln (Oly): Matt, Zack, Stiven
-Leprechaun Artists (Pullman): Keegan, Dom, Matt (W.Sea)
-Tom & Jerry's Kids (PDX): Tom, Jerry, Cecily
-Dennis Crooks (Mixer): Rev Phil, Andres (Victoria), Cara (E.Van)

PM Group: first games start at 2pm
-2-Oh-Chix (Sea): Kelly, Kelsey, Kiersten
-Super Polo Novas (Sea): Aaron, Cody, Forrest
-Double Flushers (Sea): Drew, Eric, Leslie/Tom
-rOly pOly (Oly): Muffin, Garret, Mark
-Because I Got High (Sea): Julian, Evan, Martin (E.Van)
-Probably Something Awesome (Sea): Mckenzie, Shannon (E.Van), Skinny Garth
-Smurfhammer (E.Van): Tom, Cole, Camilo (Nanaimo)
-We aren't Hipsters (Sea): Jeremy, Koos, Bubba
-Victorian Ladies (Victoria): Valley, Naiomi, Erin
-Nanaimo Bars (Nanaimo): Steph, Dan, Eric
-China Dust (PDX): Eric, Drew, Ringer

These people have said they are coming, but they don't have teams, or I don't know what their teams are:
Spokane, Kelowna 1, Kelowna 2, Gus (Nanaimo), Kat (Victoria), Pieter (E.Van), Andrea (Oly), Troy (Sea)

If you have any questions please let me know. I can change things but you better have a darn good reason. Drew and Dave will be running the Swiss Rounds on Saturday. PLEASE be ready!

TELL ME YOUR CHANGES IF YOU HAVE THEM!!! we will go over this tonight during pick up, but we start at 10am sharp on Sat so don't hope to change anything at 11am

team Tom and Jerry's kids might not make it into the am bracket cecily is leaving with china dust sat am and might not get there till 11 or noon. i hope this does not make matters worse.

Ok, I fixed it. I was trying to split cities up so they didn't play themselves, but we will make it work. So glad you guys are coming.

new team name KooRooKooKaw!!
