Back and better than ever!
Photos from the event will be available soon.
The full day event schedule was as follows:
- 9:00 AM – TBC Kumite Registration.
- 10:30 AM – TBC Kumite Begins.
- 11:00 AM – TBC Open Main Tournament Registration.
- 12:00 PM – TBC Open Main Tournament First Pitch.
- 3:00 PM – Free Play Game.
The Main Event Tournament will begin promptly at Noon with guests encouraged to arrive at 11AM. This event will take the form of a round robin tournament where everyone will have a chance to compete. These games tend to take about 3 to 4 hours, and if you want to play, but can’t stay the entire time that’s okay. Just let us know ahead of time so we can plan the teams accordingly.
For those brave enough, The third running of The Tapey Beercone Kumite will be held prior to the main event. This ruthless battle royale contest will pit player against player to determine an ultimate champion. Please arrive at 8AM to register for this event.
Lastly, as in past years, the main tournament will be followed up with a large two sided free play game which, depending on size, may be recorded as a Lotus League game.
What to Bring:
For food, we’ll gave a grill near the field with a bunch of dogs and burgers to share. Bring whatever else you feel like eating and sharing.
For beer, we’ll have a bunch of Coors Light ready to go, but please bring something of your own if you plan on having more than a few, or if you want to drink something other than the silver bullet. Just keep in mind that if you haven’t tried drinking and playing baseball at the same time before, you may want to stick to the light stuff…
For those who will be drinking and as such won’t be driving off right after, the host wants to pass along that you can stay at his place as long as you like.
As far as what else to bring, it’s too far out to know what the weather will be like, but we’ll be prepared with multiple shade structures for cover rain or shine. If you have something of your own you can bring that would be great. In addition, it would be helpful if everyone could bring a portable folding chair, of something similar to sit on when you aren’t in the field.
Also, there will be t-shifts and other Tapey Beercone memorabilia on offer with purchase available by cash or credit.
