https://laout.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/st.patshat.png

WHAT:

We are back with LAOUT’s 25th Annual St. Pat’s Hat Tournament!  The St. Pat’s Hat tradition was started by Mo way back in 1995. St. Pat’s is a 2 day coed hat tournament (each player signs up as an individual and is assigned to a team for the weekend). You must pre-register, pre-pay and bring your Irish cheer in order to play.

WHY:

To help spread the fun of Ultimate with old and new friends. And to celebrate a LAOUT institution older than even Summer League!

WHEN:

Saturday & Sunday March 16th & 17th, 2019. Registration from 8:30-9:00am on Saturday. Games start at 9:30am and run until 4:30pm on Saturday. Games are expected to start at 10am on Sunday.

WHERE:

Hjelte Sports Center at 16200 Burbank Blvd, Encino, CA 91436

HOW MUCH?:

Prices are still being worked out since we are at a new location, but expect them to be about the same as last year.  Save money if you sign up for A-List membership or higher!  We will announce when registration is open and the prices the second we get the quote.

GENDER FORMAT:

Coed teams.  We’ll do whatever gender format we can make, but we’re hoping our community can get us to a solid 4:3/3:4 ratio. We believe in you!

*MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT – Players must be 14 years or older to play.

SCHEDULE:

Games are scheduled to start at 9:30am on Saturday. Please arrive no later than 8:45am to pick up your jerseys and find out what team you are on and get your hucks ready.

Most important! Don’t forget your most creative hats!!!

RULES:

UPA 11th edition are in effect, with the following additions/modifications:
  1. Footblocks are totally legal, except when marking Andy Bandit.
  1. Games to 13. Mirror half at 7.  Win by 2.  Cap at 15.
  2. Soft Cap. Signaled by one horn.  Finish current point then play to the highest score +2.
  3. Hard cap.  Signaled by two horns ten minutes later.  Finish current point then only continue playing if the score is tied.
  4. One timeout per half plus one floater, no timeouts during overtime.  Overtime begins at 10-10.  Time outs are 90 seconds.
  5. The fields should be regulation size, so a brick is 20 yards.
  6. You may substitute up to two players during a time-out.
  7. SPECIAL HAT RULE 1: You are not an offensive player without your hat on your head.  If your hat falls off, you are now just a very tall blade of grass.  You can still get a D without your hat on, but make sure not to catch your D’s unless your hat is on your head, or else it’s an instant turnover.

EXTRAS:

Field water (bring your own bottles)  and snacks will be provided on Saturday and Sunday.

Make sure to bring your most creative hats!!! You are welcome to wear a simple baseball hat but that is LAME so step up your game!

ACCURACY CONTEST:

We will be having an accuracy contest available during your bye rounds. Report your scores to frisbee central to be eligible for a sweet prize.

PARTY:

Mr. Furley’s Bar
14649 Ventura Blvd,
Sherman Oaks, CA 91403
Starts after the end of the last round on Saturday.

Pick up drink and food tickets at the door.

REFUND POLICY:

Full refund will be given to anyone who cancels their registration on or prior to February 22nd, 2019.   No refund will be given after that.

REGISTRATION:

You have until February 22nd for the regular registration price.  Late Registration price after that.  All registration closes on March 7th.
After February 22nd deadline, cost is $10 more and correct shirt is only a maybe.

After March 7th, you can only sign up for the waitlist and wait for a spot to open up for you.  We will inform you if we can accommodate you, but we cannot guarantee a shirt for you (meaning 90% you won’t get one).  There will be an extra $5 fee if you sign up and get accepted after March 7th.  You can come day of and we can try to get you on a team, but again no guarantees and the extra $5 will be in effect.

Also: your membership discounts are only available on this tournament until March 7th.  Don’t be that person who bought the Star Membership and expect to register and walk on the morning March 16th without paying.  It will be full price for anyone despite membership after March 7th.
