Hawaii Ultimate Tournament in November

Hey Everyone,

I am currently soliciting interest for an Ultimate tournament in Hawaii this November 9th - 12th. Hopu Ka Lewa 14. Two days on the field, one day at the beach. Location is Waimanalo Polo Fields in Oahu. The theme this year is "The Hopucalypse." (end of the world).

Team bids are due August 17th, so I need to know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. (Actual final registration is some time later, but I won't tell you how much later because that will decrease the sense of urgency I'm trying to impart.)

Minimum team size is 3. So if I get two more people who are 100% in, I will put together a bid and video and work on getting us in. If that goes well, we can expand the team to whatever size we need. And pick up players / combine if needed.

Important note: THIS IS NOT A "TAKE-ALL-REGISTRANTS" EVENT. You have to put together a bid, saying why you deserve a spot. Thus, even if we have 3 people who are 100% in, there is no guarantee of getting a spot.

I will be coordinating everything for a Busse / friends of Busse team. If you want to branch out on your own (individual player, put together your own team of 3+), you're more than welcome to do so, but it would be awesome if you let me know about it so I can do anything I can to help out informing people on where they might fit best / have the most fun.

NOTE: This is NOT a "hat" tournament. So if we all want to play on the same team, we CAN (for Sat/Sun on the field...Monday, the Beach day, WILL be a hat draw, which is probably good, because two days of hard ultimate is about it for most of us).

Cost is $120 / person if you pay by a reasonable date. Up to $160 if you don't pay until way way later. I checked into flights a week or two ago, and currently it's like $700 round-trip, but that very well could fluctuate up or down as we decide on flights.

Breakfast and dinner will be served on the fields, lunch is on your own.

Lodging will be campsites across the street from the fields.

If you want to make a "real vacation" out of it, there will be an actual Hat tourney the next weekend on Maui, details are not yet finalized.
