As the diehards are getting older and the youngbloods failed to turn up to save bike polo, I'm looking to hold a tournament here that takes on the Indianapolis Masters idea. Hoping to develop it further in this thread - so please input if interested/have thoughts/ideas.
My first thoughts are for a 100+ years combined team age with a minimum of one player on the team being 45+ or two players being 35+. Want to try a keep younger ringers down to one per team if possible.
Single Saturday event with 3 games for a preliminary; a goal start for the team with the highest aggregate age (in prelims only) for up to 16 teams. Double elimnations to finals as per. Start 1030 finish 1900 (under lights if necessary).
An organised awards party Saturday night with food/reserved tables.
Sunday 1100-1500 an old versus young(er) bench match (best of 3 x 40 minutes) for everyone involved/staying around.
Either May or early September.
