91 days to go by my count. um fuck yes!

So in.

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

Hoping to make it [fuck work]. Loose agent.

I'm down! anyone want to make a team?

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

I'm planning on attending and being a serious competior and I have no team. I'm from pullman washington and would like to have a full team some time soon. Where are you? It would be nice to play with you b4 the turniment so we can get ust to eachothers playing stlyle. Hit me up at crupidominic@yahoo.com if you are interested.

Hey Trevor!

P/M Hardcourt

yea back to portland!

i want all my favorites staying with woadie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ahgad!

Will there be a wildcard tournament for this?

you and i could win this 2 v 3

go, tell it on the mountain

Muffin and I are looking for a third for this one. Holla!

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

Is registration for this going to be a mad rush just like for Arkansas or is there going to be a better system in place? I realize there is no perfect system but what about trying something like having a some of the spots set aside (maybe half) and allocated between each city in the region, and then the rest can open up at a specific time ... just a thought.

it's still going to be first come first served, we can't change the system now, and even if we could a system that allocates spots per city would be impossible cause of all the teams that mix players.

That said, NAH is working on a slight revision to the reg system used for SW and SC, which should make it a bit more clear.

understandable... but still a big +1 to what nick said.

2007 - King of The Juice
2010 - LEFTY MAGIC

I'll try and see if we can open up registration at a generally unobtrusive time. What time are most Cascadia polo players /not/ working? 9:00 Pacific on a Sunday?

sunday morning seems best

i see what you did there

2007 - King of The Juice
2010 - LEFTY MAGIC

portland is easy for me to travel to, who would like to form a team?

I might take you up on that offer Pepper if my team-mate can't make it from the midwest.

general idea of registration spots available, specifically out of region spots...

Z* x 25% = Number of out of town teams.

*Z = Total size of tournament.

48/12 i believe

48 teams total - 36 IN region / 12 NON region

Registration date/time will be worked out when NAH get the system revised with the SE Champs registration - expect this to occur in ~2 weeks time

probably too seriously...

www.eighthinch.com

@NAH will we be able to pay the registration at that time?

P/M Hardcourt

42/12???

yea you must be from Edmonton with that ratio!

lol! wowie that was a hoot.

Registration should be @ 247 am on tueday or wednesday morning coz I should just be crawlin thru the door after a couple of great nites out .

Hoping to be in the 206 a week before this date and willing to play in this! See ya!

don't bother maxxx, havn't you heard? cascadia has already decided amongst themselves how they will reach an outcome for this tournament (minus out of region teams). our pecking order is already pretty well sorted out up here....theres no need to acually play this one out... tournament results will be posted directly after registration...super easy!!
ps. mail me the brownies instead..

i thought you were gonna be on my team jason?

hahaha! seriously...i hope all the bum rushing of these things is over by then...

Portland United

p.s. Just see me in south central I'll hook you up.
and after south central, I'll look for a team that will ruin the pecking order because Jah works in mysterious ways.

If anyone is looking for a third, going to this tournament would give me a second good reason to be out in Washington this week. PIck me up! In the nepotic BM 2011 draft I went 27th, so you know I'm not bad and have friends!

Someone pick this man.

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

yep, need a team for this as well. you, me and pepper?

sent you an e-mail. let me know what you think.

Drew I am still down to come back to see you again. Let me know if you still need a team.

Prepare, motherfuckers...

Please know that we are working our hardest to make this the best regional qualifier we can. Our goal is to show everyone why Cascadia is the best region in the country!

probably too seriously...

www.eighthinch.com

good luck! (that's not meant as sarcasm)

free agent here.

i play mostly positionally, with good eyes and game sense. i've played about a dozen tournaments but haven't placed near the top yet. i don't mind being in goal a bit, i'm a smaller guy with a smaller bike but i've been known to mallet stop some sick shots. if you need a guy who can setup plays, make pretty passes and snipe shots (protect ya net!) let me know. serious inquiries only.

edit: i've been snatched!

When is registration going to be open?

if it was 2 weeks later I'd be living there :(

wha? moving west pete??

yup yup, Portland in June!

that'll make three, when shane comes we will have four bruisers in play, two more and we can hold bruiser only games!

let's just hope that I don't get as bruised as I did after our cuddlepuddle pick-up game in Lex.... elbows were purple for weeks

Another polo cat looking for a team! meow fuckers. If you know me - pick me up! I already qualified, but cant miss out on the good vibrations.

Peace to all the Gods and the Earths!

Don't worry pete, just for you I am sure we can go ahead and change that date! j.k. bro! NO SOUP FOR YOU!

Information has been updated with registration time, etc.
Sasha

Thanks for posting the most clear and concise instructions of any regional to date!

Thanks for the info Sasha!

2 Questions:

1. The instructions state: "3. You can fill out the form before midnight, but don't hit the "submit" button until midnight. ANY SUBMISSIONS BEFORE 10:00:00AM will be ignored. No exceptions."

Maybe I'm missing something in this, but I don't understand what you mean about not submitting until midnight, and then saying that you'll ignore submissions before 10am... did you mean to say 10am instead of midnight?

2. We have to register all three players, but what happens if a player (or even two...) finds out that they can't make it... can that team just substitute someone else? Do they need to get permission or clear it with registration or can the team just pick up a new player(s) without consulting?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts on these - Looking forward to this one!!!

That's what fecked a lot of people up registering for savannah ...... the wording of midnite and 11pm . It sucked that it said it that way. I was 13 enough to have luck on my side

"So this is how it ends"MACHINE

Hi Nick,
Good questions. Kev will have to chime in on question one, as he is involved on the technology backside, and a NAH official will have to chime in on question two.

As far as I can tell, the wording in question one is meant to encourage people to fill out the sign-up sheet before hand, so that you don't spend precious seconds typing your name, but to not actually hit the submit button. For example, if you filled the form out and submitted it before 10:00:00AM, your submission would be ignored. I can only assume that the midnight wording has to do with not having your form information lost if some server setting or cookie data resets itself at midnight. Regardless, just be ready to submit your entry after 10:00:00AM, and not a second earlier.

For your second question, I certainly don't care if you have to make a substitution, as long as it is respecting the regional rules. A NAH official will have to chime in, but life throws curve balls, and I have no intention of disqualifying people because they needed a sub.

Sasha

I'll coordinate and get back to this discussion about substitutions.

i fixed the confusing language that mentioned midnight. not so much a technical problem as one of proof-reading.

Here's the deal on substitutions:

If you are an in region team at registration, and need to substitute before the tournament begins, at least two of your players would still have to be in region.

If you are an out of region team, substitutions will still be allowed from either in region or out of region players.

However, there cannot be a full team substitution, i.e. at least one team member has to be from the originally registered team.

Hope that clears things up.

A big shout out to Mr. Eric Crandall for helping to put this info together, and to the executive staff, who without which this tournament would not be happening.

I was just wondering if you guys choose the date for opening registration on the same day as daylight savings intentionally? How many people are gonna forget to reset their clocks and screw up their registration....

Ha! I was wondering that too! I now own two alarm clocks and am operating ahead of schedule already so as to not fuck up. Feel like I'll be late to this show tonight but might just be the first one there!

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

Good Point! Spring forward, fall back. Your Cascadian 9am is really 10am come Sunday morning. Don't F it up eh - wake up early and watch the time widget!

http://www.time.gov/widget/

probably too seriously...

www.eighthinch.com

Ugh - daylight savings time again? I can't figure that stuff out for the life of me... hopefully my phone is smart enough.

Oh god I hope I don't fuck this up. Different time zone...daylight savings time...the odds are against me but I shall persevere.

The time widget is open in a separate window that I will not close until the deed is done.

Please people. We need to discuss the quality of the poster. Let's get serious.

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

Hmmmm?

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

x3

so... all you incomplete teams.. i would enjoy very much to play in this so let me know if you need a third. word.

i'm gonna need some golf carts with little flatbed bike trailers to get from Park A to Park B, how sweet would that be?

Remember, if you register before 10:00:00 AM PST, your application will not be accepted. This includes 09:59:59 AM, and especially includes the two teams that registered yesterday.

Sasha

so if a team registers multiple times, both before and after the official time, as was the case for south east, will they be disqualified from registering? or will you just accept the first registration after the official time? this makes a huge difference for registration strategy

At the risk of making more work for myself sorting through duplicate responses, there are no standing rules about this, so I'm not going to make any now. Register all you like.
Sasha

Regional Reps will help you with this one Sasha.

<--- Free AGent soon to be living in Seattle by May 15th. I'll be a great addition to any team. Wait til march 26th and you'll see how good I am by how I rank in the south central tourney.
I'll even edit this post to make people know that I'm on your team :p

meeeeeeeeeee. i need a team for jah's sake.

Gena, just saw that you registered. Good work. I also might need a team, not really sure what's going on with a few options. Keep me in the loop about what you figure out. You too, Max. I think there's enough spots that we'll all be fine.

EDIT: I thought I signed in as myself, but apparently I'm still signed in as Drew. This is not Drew. This is Cecily.

that was cecily on my account please help a lady out she is a great player and kills it at life pick her if you faked a team on registration.

ALSO, I am Czar of Housing, so if you need a third AND you want to sleep in a REAL BED, let me know.

Yo Cec, I'd love to play with you. Yeah i just thought fuck it, i'm signing myself up with TBD. Lets kill it! This is gonna be sooooooooo fun!

I didn't fake a team but apparently scooter registered us this morning so we're looking for a third and willing to take cecily. This is the same team that will be in south central with cherri as a third. scooter says it'd be cool if you wanted to join this team, we don't have a third.

Ended up hooking up with some Victoria ladies! Thanks for the offer, though. Would love to play with some Mallet Mafiosos at some point.

yo, send me a message if you wanna get on a team

Make sure you have the correct timestamp on your application - if not, submit again.

YO STIVEN .... you pushed the button at 59:59:.... you should really hit that button again in the immediate future..... Nevermind it looks like Zack picked up your slack.... at #61 which may work when you take out all the doubles and tripples

Woke up at 10:05 by accident. Signed up naked.

Wow. I don't think I got in. Except for all the multiple registers. Fingers crossed the multiple teams don't pay for all there spots.

a bunch of teams registered multiple times....you're in.

That was kind of stressful. Especially the part where I fucked up. We're in though and I can't wait for this one!

Team practice starts in two hours.

Still some spots open - everyone who registered at the right time is in. Not enough out of region folks registered, so there is no in-regions getting put on any waiting lists.

if more out of region teams start to trickle in, will they bump regional teams off the list due to the in/out of region ratio (36/12)? if so, whats the deadline for out of region teams to register by before regional teams take those spots?

or is it more like12 out of region teams allowed at most within the first 48 registrations?

NO, it's first come first serve with a max of 25% out of region, if they didn't get their registration in quick enough, too bad....

Why is our team listed as temporary?

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

Dirty little munchkins? I suck at names, let me think!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

FYI: you have the Fun Guys on there twice..

Take it Sleazy

I wasn't on the committee that set up the way registration works, so maybe Mike Tretter, or Kev or someone can clarify this, but the way I understand it is that registration is a first come first serve deal, with a max of 25% out of region. So for 48 teams, a max of 12 out of region teams.....but let say 36 regional teams have registered, and 11 out of region teams...one spot left. If a regional team registers next and then a non-regional team after them....who gets the last spot? My understanding is it would go to the regional team, but if someone could clarify this it would be good.

yep i agree... in region trumps out 'o region at some point...... in my humble opinion the 'MAX' 25% is considered courtesy. If cascadia wants to play, let 'em play

Yes it's first come first served, non-regional teams can take no more than 25%

Ten days before the tournament begins, the 75%/25% regional restriction will be removed; opening any remaining spots to all teams, regardless of their regional makeup.

Any out of region spots not used up immediately don't turn into a free for all until 10 days before the tournament.

hmm so right now there are 7 outside teams and exactly 36 regional so no more regional teams should be able to take the outside spots until may 10...

there is one regional team registered twice under 2 different team names (MTB/ Tri-City Triumphs). so that leaves room for one more regional team

Thanks - removed the duplicate.

As far as I can see this is incorrect. Spots are not held for out of region teams but they cannot account for more than 25% of the total. As of may 10 the remainder of the teams can be from any regional designation, so the 25% cap is removed for out of region.

____________
The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

• 75% of the available spots at each qualifier are reserved for teams with at least two players from the host region. The remaining spots (25%) are reserved for teams composed of 2 or more players from outside the region of the hosted tournament.
• Ten days before the tournament begins, the 75%/25% regional restriction will be removed; opening any remaining spots to all teams, regardless of their regional makeup.

that should be clarified, I'm pretty sure its supposed to mean a MAX of 25% out of region up until 10 days before. We have never tried to limit regional teams from getting in in any way. It can definitely be written more clearly, but that is not the way it was meant to be interpretted.

no that means at that point more than 25% out of region can get in if there are still spots. Regional teams just have to register first come first serve.

Dear Mr. Rep.

It seems that the wording on this is unclear. Please see the above posts by myself and Hurricanejosh.

Are the remaining spots reserved for out of region teams? At this point any regional team that registers will still get in automatically correct? (Also due to the current percentages any out of region team will also get in but I think the confusion is wether or not regional teams are barred from entry until the 10th.)

____________
The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

Clarification Regarding the 2011 Tour Registration Guidelines:

The 75/25 in-region/out-of-region team split was created to ensure regional teams would have more qualifer spots; while the 25% registration for out-of-region teams was developed to honor the pre-existing open tournament registration structure as a way of transitioning competitive bike polo into a new tournament model.

Where a qualifier registration has spaces available for either in-region or out of region teams after the initial rush to register, and no sooner than 10 days before the qualifier start date, the 75/25 rule will be lifted and remaining spots will be open for registration to both in-region and out-of-region teams.

So Sven is reading the rules how they were intended.

this doesn't allow much time for travel plans, and what hour does this occur/what is the registration process at this 10 day mark?

How is it that Bjorn is on two teams? Machine too? Yous holding spots?

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

I've created a new tab called "sorted" where I am working things out. Highlighted cells are problems that will be un-highlighted as they get solved. Please point out any errors you may find.

also, team number 29, gnarmageddon needs one player, shooter mcgavin doesn't exist.

and team 9, MTB, and team 23, Tri-City Triumphs are the same team.

This is absolutely 100% true. Our bad. We clearly need to work on our off-court organizational skills.

So i couldn't register as TBD or was i too late? what's happening???? i'm confused.

***COURT ASSIGNMENT UPDATE***

Court assignments and your Swiss round competitors can now be viewed on the registration spread sheet to the far right of the page. (https://spreadsheets0.google.com/a/civicactions.net/ccc?authkey=CJDymg4&...)

Saturday's round robin is going to be held at two separate locations - Rose City(two courts) and Alberta(one court). Your team has been assigned to either Rose City One(R1), Rose City Two(R2) or Alberta(A). We have not worked out the AM/PM part or start/end times, so stay tuned for that in the coming weeks.

Teams containing referees have been highlighted in a lovely pale lavender. Details regarding the exact extent of your reffing commitment will be worked out later by TimTim.

Double Random OMG! Simply put, your court assignment and competitors for Saturday couldn't be anymore random. If you really want the long version... Your individual internet click speed randomly assigned you to a registration number(1-48). I then randomly generated forty-eight numbers (http://www.random.org/) and assigned them to teams from lowest to highest registration order. The team who was assigned the number 01 was given R1, the team with number 02 was given A, the team with number 03 given R2 and then the pattern repeats... For example, 2-Oh-Chix are time stamped first, they were given the first random number (22) and then with a repeating pattern of R1, A, R2... they are assigned court R2. Make sense? Great!

As always, if you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

probably too seriously...
