Save the Date: June 17th, 8:30 AM at Brentwood Park!
It's back - PGVC's largest grass tournament, as usual the Saturday of Portland Pride weekend!
Help celebrate Pride in Portland and show your support for Portland Gay Volleyball Club by registerting and playing in our annual Pride Grass Quad's Grass Tournament. We hope to have even more teams in each of the three divisions we offer. First serve will be at 9:00 am and as always, we will have our Beverage License so we can enjoy some cool cocktails in the warm sun playing a sport we all love.
Standard Quads grass rules will be communicated as we get closer to the tournament. We will have a Reverse Co-ed 4's division, Men's Competitive (A/BB/B Divisions if there are at least 4 in each division) and of course, our BLIND DRAW division for anyone who just wants to come and have fun or is a beginner player. We are POSSIBLY going to run a sand division as well if we can manage to reserve the court.
If there are less than 3 in either B or BB, we will combine all those teams into one division and randomly choose teams for pool play brackets (semi-blind draw). After pool play, we will split and place teams into their correct divisions. For the A/AA division, we don't usually have an issue filling up your division but if there are only 3 teams, we will ask BB teams if anyone wants to volunteer to play up. Let's just hope we don't need to go there...in other words, PLEASE recruit teams and players for your divisions!! This is a request to ALL DIVISIONS!! Your help is important to growing and having a successful tournament.
We will be at the park by 8:00 to set up nets. Per usual, if you have a net, please bring it with you in case we need it. If we do end up using your net we waive your fee to play!
We will be selling plate lunches again as this is one of main fundraising activities (the tournament and lunch). We are also planning to have other FUNd raising treats but can't divulge any information on FB! LOL
If you know anyone that may be interested in playing, please invite them and remember that we are a non-exclusionary group and this is a GAY PRIDE event.
Cost for the tournament is $25 per person which can be PRE-PAID via Venmo or PayPal (PGVClub@gmail.com). Obviously, this is a preferred choice as it speeds up registration on the morning of the tournament! We will send out gentle reminders to everyone as we get closer. Once we have more details on lunch we will send out that information (we try to keep it around $5). Don't worry, we KNOW "da rice was like pebbles" last year! But I think we have perfected a method to remedy that! LOL
We will list your team below or your name as a Free Agent or Blind Draw player. Once you are paid your name or Team name will be in ALL CAPS! If you have paid and do not see your name updated, please send us a quick message so we can cross reference with our acounts.
Don't forget your pop-up tents, chairs, lots of water, and we are SUPER dog friendly! =)
Cheers! Your tournament Directors,
Dale and Annie (if she can get off work!)
