Elimination 8s is just around the corner!

Elimination 8s, Vancouver's favourite Canada Day-weekend Ultimate tournament, is back for its 11th year! Because July 1st is a Saturday this year, E8s 2012 will be held on Monday, July 2nd.

New to the tournament? E8s is a one-day Ultimate tournament (we even end by 5 PM, so the hardcore amongst us can make their league games that night) in which both teams start each game with eight players and every time a team scores a point, they lose a player. The first team to score with only two players on the field wins! Because the scoring team is handicapped with each point they score, games tend to be quite close regardless of any difference in skill (or effort) between the two teams.

Yes, if you were wondering, it is as awesome as it sounds – and all the proceeds go to charity!

As usual, E8s is at Winona this year, but because of construction at Winona South we will be limited to four fields (12 teams) – so register your team soon! Registration can be done online - just go to: http://elimination8s.blogspot.ca/ and click the "Register" tab. If you register really quickly maybe you’ll win a prize???*

If you have any questions about the tournament, shoot us an email or check out the website (especially if you’ve never seen Betsy v. Bozo sumo wrestling). Also, we’re always looking for volunteers to help us run things, so let us know if you can lend a hand.

Yr humble E8s TDs,

* You probably won’t win a prize.

Registration has only been open a week and we're down to five spots remaining. A list of registered teams is up on the website.

Seven Deadly Spins haven't signed up yet, so the championship is still up for grabs...

Don't miss out! Register soon!

Don' say I didn't warn you...

E8s 2012 is full! Thanks to everyone for registering early! You can see the list of registered teams on the site.

If you're late to the party, we've opened up a wait list. Maybe someone will get bitten by a snake or something?

Thanks to everyone who came out to E8s yesterday. Together we raised almost $2400 for charity!

Congratulations to winners G-raff A-ttack and spirit winners SWAG, and special thanks to Krista, Ian, Speedo and Marta for going above and beyond as volunteers.

Keep an eye on the website for photos, which will be posted later this week. And if you took photos at E8s, please send them to us!

We hope to see you all back again in 2013. We promise sun next time?
