2011 Australasian Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships

Australasian Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships
May 7th – 8th, 2011
Adelaide, Australia

I like that in Australia they have it together enough to just make a yearly distinction versus doing the first, second, ect. for their Championships. That’s pro.

The six General Managers, in their draft pick order, are:

3 Chris W. – CO,MO (and recently CHI)
4 Maija – Toronto, ON
5 Joker – Los Angeles, CA

Each GM will make eight selections, in turn, from the registered players to create a nine player team. GMs are allowed to trade any drafted player on their team, during the trade window. GMs cannot trade themselves.

Sheet 1: Draft Card
Sheet 2: Registered Players

The Draft registration opened January 23rd, 2011

And closes 3 pm EST, Friday February 11th
153 players registered.

Side note, Kev set up a ranking system for 25 people he selected to each rank their top 25 picks based on who they would “want to play with on a 3 person team for a regular tournament”.

The Draft date is Feb. 15th, 9 pm EST

This is only 4 days after Reg. close for the GMs to study the field and will happen live on the Google spreadsheet.

The trade window will be open for two weeks after the draft.

The first Bench Minor was in New York City and I believe Bench Minor 3 will be in Ottawa
