Signed up

Seriously cool event.

You have to sign up as a volunteer to participate in this event?

"- We need you to help during the weekend"
"- Sign up for ALL tasks you feel comfortable doing"

Someone needs to look up 'volunteer' in the dictionary.

Perhaps she is wondering why there was no mention of volunteer sign ups for the wild card registration, and perhaps the main event as well... You can see how this looks...

shotgun your bike!

I think we're of the same opinion. The above comment was not aimed at Sam.

it was aimed at me.

and it is "fixed", although i will say that all events are being asked to volunteer and they will receive forms to fill out also. but now i can't make it mandatory! hahaha.

everyone out there...it wasn't meant to offend.

I'm gonna try try try to make it to this!

-DFL folife

I'll be there! Woot woot!

Hey Meg! You going to this?!
*couldn't resist. xo

Nice! Any chance Mr. Do will be streaming this?

I'm pretty sure he is. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Midwest is best!!

Can someone explain the format? Is this a bench tournament, or is this a one game exhibition thing? I would hope we would get to be on smaller teams and play tournament style.

Hi Emily ,

The format is bench style, based on registration so far it looks like we will probably be fielding 6 full teams of 6 or more players. We'll be announcing GMs shortly and once registration is closed we'll have a draft where everyone registered will be assigned to teams.

It is one day but we have 3 courts, so be prepared to play a lot of polo!



If you plan on using all 3 courts, you'll need more than 6 teams otherwise you are playing constant back to back games.

One court might just be for practice shots, mandatory protective head gear for all children spectators at said court.

It would be real cool if info about this tournament was on the WHPBC2013 website. I know you guys are busy and I'm just excited about this tournament.

I just realized that's my wheel cover! Woohoo!!

Midwest is best!!

Who gonna choose the GM's ?


I just bought my plane ticket!

GMs? A draft? Is this moving forward? Two weeks to Worlds and still no word...

shotgun your bike!

x2! I know Chandel is busy with the indiegogo launch of RYB jeans, but what's the word Oleha and Paul?!!
P.s. Go buy some RYB jeans!!


Midwest is best!!

Announcements regarding GEMs & Draft date to come in the next two days!

gem? did I miss something?

shotgun your bike!

GEM=General Manager or Captain

Midwest is best!!

I will be there for sure! What's your email?
