Greetings Volley friends:
This weekend (with help from our friends) we have planned a grand VB tournament at Kits, not Locarno, and the start time 10:30
- changed from the draft version - the tourney has two parts:2s (1st 16 players max) or 3s (1st 24 players max) to register at 10:30am
and play from 11:00 to 2:30 (two separate tournaments ). You play in one or the other.2s - must have played 2s before and be intermediate or better
. 3s - Must have played 3s before and be intermediate or so.
Those that are less experienced will be interested in the 4s tournament which will start at 2pm (see below) 4s - must have played 4s before and be advanced-beginner.
Bring a snack or light lunch when you come. Bring water bottle and sunscreen for the last time this year.
Net set-up, adjustment, and repair 9:30 am. (Ron, Jim, Kaye, Igor and friends)
Both 2s bracket (1st 16 max), and 3s (1st 24 max) bracket at sign up at 10:30, play at 11:00 (up to 4 nets, 8 teams each bracket) Melanie will be in charge of 2s and 3s registration and bracket recording.
Registration: fee $10/year new Meetup dues starting today, Oct 2, which covers the costs of this tournament as well.
Warm ups at 10:30 sharp. Name tags provided for each.
Team Selection: The principle is even teams - will promote even numbers of girls and guys on teams. Teams to be proposed by the players, especially at 2s level. If people aren't teamed, we can match them until the spots are taken. [Jim, Hernan, Maria to discuss and maybe suggest any alterations that might be needed to level the teams]
Rules meeting at 10:50 and play starting at 11:00 with three sets and games to 21/21/15 each. 2s will play 2s rules for no setting or use of fingers on a serve and no open hand tipping. 3s and 4s will do 4s rules on no open hand tipping. Those that are in for 4s, come at 12:30 to watch the championship games in 2s and 3s, and cheer on your mates. 4s Registration 1:30 sharp (on beach only)
(1st 64 players max). Brenna to head this up, Maria might help in advance of 1:30 as 2s finish???.
Bring your own refreshment (alcohol if any, to be camouflaged) & bring a light snack ( 1:30 - 2 )
4s tourney from 2:00 to 4:30 (up to 8 nets, 16 teams) [Who ??] would like to be in charge of 4s bracket recording? You can play as well. Jim will assist] Team Selection: The principle is even teams - will promote even numbers of girls and guys on teams. Teams may register team members or we may group people together.
BBQ 4:00 on - non-vegetarian food Jim and Brenna will purchase with money collected. Jacky and Clem, will bring BBQ grills. Jim and Ron have coolers. BBQ chef Melanie, Kaye, Jacky and friends. Chakri and Jim - Vegetarian faire.
Yes bring tables as we can find them (I have a small portable one) portable chairs good idea.
