All Fourida 6
The Gainesville Bicycle Polo Club is excited to be hosting the 6th annual All Florida Bike Polo Championships.
This year will be a bit of a departure from years past as we will be hosting a 4 v 4 tournament all at one, kind of big, hockey court.
There will be a 16 team cap for the tournament, registration will be first come first serve and will open up on 9/28 at noon EST (whatch yourself P-cola). A registration link will be added when the date nears. Registration will be open till midnight on Monday 9/30 for teams comprising only of players who are or have been members of a Florida club. If all spots are not filled by 10/1 at 12:01am out of state teams may then register.
This will be a prompt starting tournament, we don't have lights so things have to start on time. Start time will be 10:00am. And we mean 3,2,1 Polo at 10:00am. If you are not there when your game starts you forfeit, for realz.
Saturday after the matches there will be a race to Swamp Head Brewery. It's 4.8 miles away, and the rule is you have to race on the bike and in the gear you played on. First place gets $75 cash, second place gets a growler of their choice, third place gets some swag and EVERYONE gets one free beer!
