1st Annual Mekong Cup
July 21 – 22, 2012
After 12 years of hosting SE Asia’s largest and most fun Hat tournament, Bangkok is finally going to host a fun & friendly team tournament. It will be a great venue to develop players skills, with the focus on giving an opportunity to some of the newer teams in the region to play competitively alongside some more experienced teams. Welcome to the Inaugural Mekong Cup.
As this is a new and relatively small tournament, it will be rather scaled down, especially in comparison to the annual Bangkok Hat tournament. There will be no discs, shirts, or beer but we will have GREAT food, some games and plenty of fun – for the love of the game!
Format: a Tourney & a Hat
In terms of formatting, we are going to try something a little different, as follows:
Day one – One day competitive mixed team tournament
Day two – One day hat tournament
Here’s what you need to know:
– This tournament is invitational, although we may accept a limited number of bids for additional teams. We’re hoping to have somewhere between 6 and 8 teams for the first year. Interested teams please send your full roster list to email@example.com.
In the event that we receive more interested teams than we can accommodate, teams will be accepted on a first come first serve (complete roster) basis. Partial/incomplete teams and single players can also contact the above email, and if there’s room we will try to assist in combining teams or placing singles on existing teams. We aim to finalise confirmed teams by the end of June.
– The tournament fee will be quite low (expect around 900baht/US$30-TBC ).
– The tournament is at the same field as the Hat (The Army Base – see the link below)
– As shirts will not be provided, apart from your team shirt please bring darks and whites for the 2nd day Hat.
Saturday Night Party
Party theme (tentative) – Amazing Race Bangkok. Just like the tv show, start times and finish times are noted, and the winner is the fastest from one to the other. The finish line is at the bar with the party!
