The party will be at Pogue Mahone. The address is 777 Bay Street but the entrance is actually on the south side of College, between Yonge Street and Bay Street. It's located on the ground floor of the plaza at College and Yonge. College is also the subway stop. Platters of food (wings, nachos, veggies, spring rolls) will be served at 9:30. Hope to see you there.
Breakfast: Will be supplied both Saturday and Sunday. Standard bagel/fruit fare (banana/orange/apple), with some other stuff (Nutella, jam, cream cheese and OJ). There will NOT be any coffee.
Lunch: No lunch will be supplied either day.
Dinner: Saturday night dinner IS included. In the past, we have had excellent meals including a meat option, a vegetarian option, multiple salades, etc. More details once a menu has been selected.
We are NOT providing plates or cutlery with breakfast or dinner. You will have to provide your own eating implements. Please, NO paper plates! We are trying to be environmentally friendly. We will have wash bins and water to rinse your plates (or discs).
Full information may be found here.
Some things to know about the tournament:
A couple of things we want to highlight:
In order for this to run smoothly, we need to be prompt, so please note that all times listed are actual times; we're not on Ultimate time!
We will be starting festivities at 9:15 Saturday morning, which gives enough time to get the teams organized, get shirts out, have a coffee (if you brought one) and a bit of food, and warm up. We have a fair bit of administration (making sure that almost 168 players find their teams), so it will help if everyone gets to the fields early enough to make this happen.
The first games on Saturday and Sunday are at 10:00 sharp.
Each time slot is 2 hours and games are to 17. There should be plenty of time to play a full game in the 2 hour time slot, but otherwise there is a cap 5 minutes before the end of the time slot. When the cap time is reached, play out the current point. Then:
Please be quick if you are playing under a time cap, as we'd like to keep each field running under the listed schedule.
Saturday is pool play - everyone plays three games.
After the games on Saturday, we'll rank the teams and you'll be able to find out the start time for Sunday. Enjoy the buffet (start time 4:45PM).
The schedule (when listed) is subject to change, so please be sure to get to the fields at 9:00 Saturday morning to check in with Disc Central - grab a bagel, find your captain, get your shirt, and all will be well.
The time slots are 10:00-12:00, 12:00-2:00 and 2:00-4:00. The fields are named after the essential elements (Earth, Air, Water, Fire, Chocolate and Beer).
Schedule: Available at the fields Saturday morning.
We need to have captains for each team. The main responsibility of this person is to be the focal point when teams are assembling on Saturday. That means attending the Captains' Meeting Saturday morning @ 9:30 AM. Additional duties include reporting scores to Disc Central and ensuring the team has FUN.
If you'd like to be a captain, please email ZodiacTourney@gmail.com. Thanks.
