Antigua/Guate Tournament VI 2015

Here we go again! It is time for Antigua to host the Guatemala Hat Tournament. Come one, come all, and bring your friends! We will play on Sunday April 26th 8:30 am. After throwing the plastic around, we will have a pool party bbq! Save the date and get those hammers ready!   Lo siento que todo está en ingles, si hay preguntas, no dudan en contactarme.   Nick’s number: 4921-8278 Tokeem’s number: 3118 6168 & 7832 4517. Read on for updated tournament information.

We will be playing at the Antigua International School again, located just outside of Antigua in El Cortijo de Las Flores. Km. 48.5 Carretera a Ciudad Vieja.  The school has told us NO DOGS, please.

We ask that people try to arrive by 8:00 AM, to give time for last minute team adjustments and warm-up before getting started at 8:30 am.  We have folks who need to be on the road after the BBQ so punctuality (as much as possible) will be greatly appreciated!!!  

Bring a light shirt and a dark shirt, water and good spirit, as well as a snack or sunscreen as needed.

Due to field constraints, we're doing 6 smaller teams.  Games will be 5 v 5. The schedule will go as follows:

8:30     A vs. B       C vs. D    E vs. F
9:20     A vs. C       B vs. E    D vs. F
10:10   A vs. D       B vs. F    C vs. E

11:00  Championship and Consolation games (as necessary)
11:50   El Salvador vs. Guatemala
12:40  Antigua vs. Guatemala

Games will be played to 11 points (win by 2), hard cap at 13, or 35 minutes, hard cap at 40, whichever comes first.  This will give us a 10 minute break between games.

Once again, we will be celebrating after the tournament with a little party, graciously hosted by Tokeem and his family at Las Arcadas apartment complex in Antigua. L
as Arcadas is on novena calle poniente, next to Hotel Soleil. We can all carpool there from the tournament, too, so don't worry too much about finding it.
 
Food and some bevvies will be provided, but please be prepared to bring something to drink and/or some Q to chip in for a beer run! Also, an extra side dish never hurt! And don’t forget your swimsuits!
 

 As in the past, we will be asking Antigua players to help chip in to cover the costs of food, etc.
