HWSA 2021 Oktoberfest

Hello!

The 2021 Oktoberfest Coed Open and O30 and Women’s Open and O40 will be held in Houston October 23 – 24 at Bear Creek Park: 3535 War Memorial Drive Houston, TX 77084

The host hotel for the teams is Four Points by Sheraton & Houston Energy Corridor 18861 Katy Freeway, Houston, TX 77094. The tournament room rate is $82 per night; the hotel phone number is (346)-251-5025.

Prize money for each competition will be determined by how much money I have to work with. After I figure the field rental, first place shirts, referee pay, and entry fees, I will be able to determine what places and amounts I can give.

I am attaching the team information forms, which need to be emailed to me no later than Sep 22nd. I am also attaching the team roster form, which will lock by Oct 5th. Please make sure the teams use this excel version! No photos of rosters will be accepted. *Players must accept online waiver no later than Oct 5th to be able to participate in the tournament.

HWSA is working hard to make sure that everyone is as safe as they can be. I will provide a covid protocol, which managers are responsible for ensuring that their teams adhere to.

There will be a mandatory team check in on Friday evening at the host hotel between 7 and 9 pm to verify members listed on your roster. Bonus points for alphabetizing the names! We will have rosters and player cards ready for you at check in. Every player will be required to have a valid HWSA player card for each game.

If a player receives a yellow card, there is a $10 fine; if a player receives a red card, there is a $30 fine. All fines must be paid prior to the team’s next game. If a red card is received, the player must sit out one game and the team cannot play until the fine is paid. Any player that receives a red card will not play in their team’s next game.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me via email at sundaycoed@hwsa.org or by phone at 832.330.2514.

I am looking forward to a great Oktoberfest!!
