Everyone rdy for a bigger badder tournament? West Virginia Haymakers are gonna be there Bringing another team down with us. We've played in many tournaments in other states and by far had the most fun ever at Skyline in July
I played in the first tournament and I had a lot of fun! I couldn't believe how sore I was though...I mean I work out everyday and was expecting to be a lil sore, but not like that! Overall it was well worth it! There was food/BEER, great competition, funny lil guys in green, and a pretty awesome director of it all...I think his name was Greg Roman! I look forward to the one at the end of August as the Mama Milo's come back with a vengence!
is there a minimum age requirement for the tourny? me and my teammates are from texas and were all 17 except for one whos 20 something....just checking cuz pretty much all the tournys in texas you have to be 18...post soon

We are still deciding. Doesn't look like October. We are thinking about $4k to 1st and 1K to 2nd or $3.5k and $1.5k. Still a lot of planning, more rules, more refs, more food, BEER, etc. Maybe an after party at the club. I'll keep everyone informed. Thanks, Greg
Definately go straight to the 10k tournament, more money, more teams, bigger event! Have tournament and an after party. Make it a one day event, don't try to spread it over 2 days. Also have guest appearance Ben Stiller hah
Aren't you afraid that going up to a $10K (or even a $5K) tournament will weed out the weaker competition, resulting in a smaller turnout? Even at the last tournament, $120 for a team was probably as high as I wanted to go. Would you get sponsors to put in so you could keep the entry fee moderately-priced; or are you expecting that people will put in more for a higher prize? Personally, I think that more than two-thirds of the teams at the previous tourney knew realistically they weren't going to win. And the "anything can happen" theory doesn't apply, since it's round robin and best of 5. There's no chance for a cinderella story.

We are working on sponsors for the event. We are thinking of $300 a team for the $10k tourny. That's $50 a person for unlimited food (Subway, Dominos, San Antonio Grill, home cooked ethnic food, etc.), beverages (bottled water, sport drinks, BEER!), prize money, a great work out, fun, etc. $50 a person is a great deal, in my opinion for unlimted food and drinks. We also plan on having an after party (with more food and drinks). We also plan on having massages and a chiropractor on call for the event as well. Membership deals for players and spectators. Food and drink specials at local bars.
