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 Six Geese-a-Laying.
Registration begins Wednesday, November 15th (12pm ET) at http://leagues.afdc.com/.
Spots are available for 108 men and 48 women, with a waitlist thereafter, separate for each gender. Name and rank are needed for registration. Spots are not guaranteed until payment is received. Refunds are not available. Registration closes on Saturday, December 2nd.
When: Dec 9th and 10th.
Where: Georgia Soccer Park. Parking is $1.
Time: 9am Saturday. Sunday 10am.
Bring: Players must wear a hat while playing. Please note: A VISOR IS NOT A HAT. Hats cover your head, visors do not. If you are unsure of what makes a suitable hat, please consult wikipedia.
Jerseys: Because of lead time, sizes are first-come, first-served. Because of lead time, we order the same variety of sizes in each color. Get to the fields early on Saturday to get first dibs.
Extras: We’ll have tasty beverages for you at the field, as well as some field games (Cube, Can Jam, etc) for extra fun times.
Party: The tournament is paired with the AFDC Fancy Pants Party, which takes place the weekend prior to the tournament (December 2nd) at the Highland Inn Ballroom. Further details to come.
Check-in: Check-in starts at 8am on Saturday morning at the fields. 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.
Dogs: Gentle reminder that dogs are currently not permitted at Georgia Soccer Park, per park rules. Anyone bringing a dog will be asked to immediately take them home.
Questions, jokes, stories, or riddles can be sent to Paige Payne or posed on the forums.
