Teams: Minimum of two people on a team (no player may throw more than three batons during each turn).
Cost: $20/team, $15 for BRKC Member Teams, $10 for individual. Online registration or email/check. We are unable to refund registrations.
Format: Group Play: Teams are placed in groups of three or four. All matches are best-of-three.
Playoffs: All teams advance to the playoffs. First round byes (if any) will depend on number of teams registered. Depending on how a team does in their first playoff match, they will enter the Championship Bracket or Consolation Bracket. Round-robin matches have a 1 hour timelimit. There is a 1.5 hour timelimit in the first round of the playoffs. There are no timelimits after. All teams are guaranteed at least four total matches.
Open: We will use the 2, 4, 6 open. The team that wins the opening king toss gets to decide what side they will be on or what team will throw first. The team that throws first will throw two batons. The team that throws second will throw four batons. The team that threw first will then throw six batons, and six batons will be used for the remainder of the game. After each game, teams will switch sides and the team that threw first in the previous game will throw second. Two different players have to throw the two batons in the first turn, and at least two different players need to throw the four batons in the second turn.
Team Placement: All teams will be randomly placed in Groups
Playoffs: The tournament will have a Championship Bracket and Consolation Bracket. Awards will be given out to the top three teams in both brackets. The 2015 Champion will have their team name and player names put on the Championship Trophy.
Food: Lunch will be provided for registered players, outside food and drink is welcome.
