  1. Registration is NOT working. It doesn’t appear to recognize the gender category. meaning once you have selected one option it states the field isn’t filled in and you can’t submit your registration.

  2. Ohh, did you say hat D’s! I think I love you St. Pat’s Hat.

  3. Any idea if the Jerseys are going to be from 5 Ultimate, another company that makes those kind of shirts, or cotton? It will change the size of shirt many of us get. Thanks.

  4. Not 100% certain that I succesfully registered… may be a glitch in the registration system/process… I e-mailed the TD’s & hope to hear back soon. In the meantime, please place me on a team while the glitch is being remedied. Thanks!

  5. I e-mailed the TD’s – stpats.laout@gmail.com – but it bounced back!! Please kindly place me on a team while these glitches in the registration process are being tended to. Thanks so much!

  6. Was able to reg & pay the second time through… But the e-mail address listed to contact the TD’s is still questionable.

  7. Sorry the email isn’t working. In the meantime, please feel free to email me at matthewmhennessy@gmail.com until we get that worked out. Jerseys will most probably be 5 similar to last year. We will send out updates on jerseys once we get a better grasp of numbers.


  8. I didn’t seem to have an option to paying more than $45, so if I owe more to cover the fee, please let me know.


  9. In the tournament info up above the email address is “stpatshat.laout@gmail.com”, but the link goes to “stpats.laout@gmail.com”.
    That could be one problem…

  10. I’m gonna try to play this year. St. Pats is the social event of the year as far as I’m concerned.
    Can’t wait to see you all there.

  11. Hey i registered and payed, and i just wanted to make sure you guys got my info. It would rock if someone could email me with confirmation. Thanks a lot. I am super excited to play.

  12. Dana, can you email us at stpatshat.laout@gmail.com to confirm your registration?

  13. Hey lauren i emailed you back with that info. My name is Danny Jones. Dana is just a nick name. Let m know whats up.

  14. Weather forecast is not looking good, not to mention wet fields during the week.
    What are the odds we get moved to the beach and when do you think it will be posted if we stay or go?

  15. yeah, what muffintop said! (really, just wanted to write the word muffintop)

  16. We’re checking in with the muni folks and should be good to go if there’s no weekend rain. We’ll send everyone an update when it comes.

  17. I am having transportation issues. Any chance that anyone is coming from Sacramento/Bay area to St. Pats? I am in Grass Valley up in the Sierras.

    Also, when will we know about rain cancellation.


  18. I am absolutely a TRAIN WRECK with beach Ultimate, but I’m just damned excited to get out and play, so I’ll be there! Come on out, everyone – get your butts outa bed and rock the beach. 🙂

  19. Would someone please tell me where the “F” this beach is?

  20. Woodley, it’s at Ocean Ave and Ocean Park Blvd in Santa Monica.

  21. Where Ocean Park and the sea and sand meet in Santa Monica. South of the pier.

  22. I abandoned a red nalgene at St. Pats on Sunday. It has a USA Triathlon sticker and an ultimate sticker on it. If you picked it up, I’d be most grateful if you could get it back to me. You can keep the water I left in it.
