The holidays are fast approaching and that means it’s almost time for AFDC’s 12 Days of Christmas hat tournament! This year’s theme is Four Calling Birds.
Registration begins Wednesday, November 18th (noon EST) at http://leagues.afdc.com/leagues. The first 108 men and 48 women get in. If you don’t make it, you will be put into a waiting list – separate for each gender. Name and rank will be needed for registration. You are not guaranteed a spot until you pay. No refunds. No pairs. Registration closes on Wednesday, December 2nd.
When: Dec 12th and Dec 13th
Where: Georgia Soccer Park Parking is going to be $1, similar to other AFDC events at GSP.
Time: 9 AM Saturday. Sunday 10am.
Bring: Must wear a hat. As hats cover your head, visors do not count. If you are unsure of what makes a suitable hat, please consult wikipedia.
Jerseys: We are giving out Jerseys with the logo designed by Spin. We can not guarantee you get the shirt size due to lead times. We will be ordering the same variety of shirt sizes in each color. Get to the fields early on Saturday to get first dibs.
Party: The party is going to be paired with the Black Tie AFDC Grants Fundraiser. Like last year, the party will not be the night before the tournament. It will be December 4th at the Highland Inn Ballroom. Further details to come.
Check-in: Check-in starts at 8am on Saturday morning at the fields where the big tent used to be. The schedule will be sent out on Friday evening as will an email to the players with first round byes.
Blind Bet: Someone will be accepting $5 bet at check-in. Bet on a team to win it all and if your pick wins you get to split the pot.
Questions, jokes, stories, or riddles can be sent to Paige Payne or posed on the forums.
