Registration Reminder, T-Shirts, Maps

Your friendly Higgyball council would like to remind you that we have Higgyball registration happening this Sunday, August 1, 2021 starting at 12:00pm. We’ll keep registration open until we fill all 32 spots, but don’t sleep on it. Cost is $10 per team, and you will need to provide your team name, the names and email addresses of both participants, how many standard-sized bocce ball sets you can lend to the cause, and also up to two suggestions for the music playlist. During the day on Sunday, you can keep an eye on the Bracket page to see who has signed up. Also, add to the Food Registry or sign up on the Free Agent list if you don’t yet have a partner (you must do this instead of grabbing a spot and hoping to find someone later).

In addition to team registrations, we’ll have the annual Higgyball shirts for sale (see above), designed, as always, by the incomparable Patrick Lytle. One little wrinkle this time around: we’re using Lebowski again for the shirts, but they only offer price breaks at certain numbers of shirts ordered. Our shirts start at $25, but if we don’t have enough ordered for either design (H17 logo or the mad cow), we may ask if you would switch designs (or we will return your payment if you don’t care to switch). Hopefully there won’t be an issue, but do keep this in mind.

Finally, since we will have 32 teams this year, we’ll have a new format for the fields. Get a sneak peek at the map above, and start practicing your bocce throws! (This new format is why we need you to pledge your balls to Higgyball, so do let us know when you register.)
