Savor The Flavor

Congrats to Flavor Savers for their first Higgyball championship!

A good mix of old guard and new blood in the final four, also including Corner Boys, Charging Rhino, and Pornstache. MVPs this year were Amanda Tharp and Wayne Proffitt (he of the only recorded double baci in Higgyball history). It was great seeing all of the new faces this year, thanks for joining us! A big thanks to Holly, running the deck to make sure everyone got on the right fields. And as always, thank you to our gracious hosts, Danielle and Marc, for the awesome venue.

If you have photos from this year’s event, please send them our way, whether it’s via email, Facebook, flash drive, or Pony Express. A big part of Higgyball is the nostalgia factor, and it’s always great to look back at the photos years later.

Today is the longest you’ll have to wait for more Higgyball. See everyone next year for Higgyball 15!

Happy Higgyball Day!

We made it! Looks like the weather will cooperate after all. Please make sure all those that are playing are at the event no later than 11:00 AM. We’ll go through the opening ceremonies, talk about how the tournament works, and check teams in. If you’ll be significantly late, please let us know ASAP.

Also, don’t forget your community bags of ice, bocce sets, adult beverages, Food Registry items, sunscreen, chairs, camping gear, and a cheerful attitude. Here’s to another great Higgyball!

Eyes On The Sky

It appears that we have a potentially sketchy day of weather ahead of us for H14.    Saturday morning, please mind your email as we’ll be sending any updates regarding delay or cancellation no later than 10:00 AM.  Be assured that we will do everything in our power to press through as the forecast for Sunday (our reserved rain day) looks even worse.  In the event that we are forced to cancel, any parties that cannot participate on the rescheduled day will be refunded in full.

Currently there are an array of forecasts ranging from an afternoon t-storm to biblical squalls.  The impression that I get is that the current local prediction is to expect a cloudy day that, according to Frank Marzullo, won’t be a “wash out”.  But, he did say to “plan for a storm.”  And, that, we can handle.

So, make sure to include a poncho, rain jacket, or umbrella on your list as we’ll play through everything possible.  See you soon!

     

8 Days From Glory

A few things to go over before the big day next weekend:

  • We have two spots left, and a registrant on the Free Agent list. If you’re still looking to play, check it out and sign up before the spots run out.
  • We’ll use Scoresheet mobile app again! You can see how it works at http://app.higgyball.com (we’ll be using a different local version of the app at the event, so no need to save the URL). At the event, the app connects to the server on the deck to see live updates for scores, standings, the map, the rules, MVP voting, and photo uploading on your smartphone (we have a Wi-Fi network for the app, but no internet, FYI). Spectators can use it to follow the progress of the event. Teams don’t have to use the app (all match information goes through the Deck Manager anyway), but it’s a fun thing to have available nonetheless. Let me know if you have any questions.
  • Please review the Rules before the event. Also, here’s the field map:
  • Here’s a link to the event location. If that doesn’t work, it’s at 7650 King Rd, Oxford, OH 45056.
  • Don’t forget the tent city. We encourage people to camp out after the event (weather permitting). Bring your tent or small camper and we’ll make sure to have a setup break during the day. Leave a comment on this post if you plan to camp out.
  • Keep your eyes on the weather here.  At the moment, a possible storm is predicted, but that’ll change 10 times between now and then.  We will play through everything we can, so you may want to bring a poncho, rain jacket, or umbrella.
  • H14 checklist: chairs, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, cooler, bocce set (did you pledge your balls?), coozie, food, beverages.
  • Last, but certainly not least, let’s all try and prevent House Team from winning again. Seriously.

A Few Spots Left, Final T-Shirt Sales, H14 Registries

We have just three spots left for the bracket. If you’re still thinking about registering a team, now is the time! Click here to register. If you don’t yet have a partner, add your name to the Free Agents list to find a buddy. We can form teams at the event as well if you show up wanting to play, as long as there are spots available. Don’t delay!

Monday at noon is the deadline to get your H14 T-Shirt. Act fast or you’ll regret it forever!

Due to very popular demand, we have closed the Music Registry. Good job getting after it. A few more things are available on the Food Registry, however, so take a few minutes and let us know what you can contribute.

Only two weeks left! See you soon.

Only 4 Spots Left / Add Your Jam

Hola Higgyballers,

I hope this message finds everyone having a very happy Cinco de Mayo!

  • In an attempt to make H14 ever more interactive, we want you to help build the soundtrack.  Enter your jam(s) in the Music Registry on the right column of the Home Page.

Stay dry, and have a great weekend!  See you soon.

 

H14 Registration is Now Open!

H14 Registration is open: Go!

Follow along on the Bracket page. When you register, don’t forget to pledge your balls to Higgyball, and add a few songs to the Music Registry list.

If you don’t have a partner, please add yourself to the Free Agents list. When all team spots have been filled, the Wait List will open up.

While you’re there, don’t forget to buy a Shirt (sales end May 15) and add to the Food Registry.

Please email mark.r.walker@gmail.com if you have any problems or questions. Good luck!

H14 Registration Reminder

Howdy Higgyballers! This is your friendly reminder that registration for H14 is coming up: Sunday, April 30 at 12:00 PM sharp. The cost, as always, is $10.00 per team. In case you don’t know the drill by now, you’ll pay via PayPal, but you don’t necessarily need a PayPal account; you can enter a credit card to pay. During registration, we’ll also ask that teams choose a few things from the Food Registry and add their contributions to the Music Registry.

We also want you to pledge your balls to Higgyball this year. Last year we had a snafu with the number of full-sized bocce ball sets, so we want to make sure we have the right numbers this year. The balls should be between 107mm and 115mm. We want to know if you or your teammate (or both!) can pledge to bring your balls. There will be a place during team registration to let us know how many sets you can bring. No worries if you don’t have a set, though (but now may be a good time to buy one).

Last, but certainly not least, we’ll also have the swanky new H14 T-shirts for sale. We have some awesome designs from Mr Lytle this year! Prices start at $19.00. Click the images below get a sneak peak at the designs, and look for order page to go live by this Sunday.

 

A Quick H14 Update

Hey folks. There was a slight verbiage issue with the last email, so I’m sending a quick update.

Important Dates

  • Sunday, April 30, 2017 – Team Registration and start of T-Shirt sales at 12:00pm.
  • Monday, May 15, 2017 – End of T-shirt sales.
  • Saturday, May 27, 2017 – Higgyball 2017 Memorial Tournament begins at 11:00am.
  • Sunday, May 28, 2017 – Higgyball rain backup day.

Pledge Your Balls

Last year we were shy a few sets of balls. Therefore, in order to mitigate this problem, we kindly ask that you to pledge to bring your full-size set of balls to Higgyball this year. Look for that on the team sign up form. We may reach out to others that have sets if we don’t get enough during registration, so let a Council member know, even if you’re not planning on attending the event.
