Stick around for the Big Island Hat Draw held in Hilo, Hawaii February 24th & 25th, 2018.  http://www.hilohatdraw.com/

Team Captains – The bid window is now closed.  Acceptance/Wait List notifications have gone out. Please note the three players that were included in the bid will not be marked as “accepted” until their information section is complete and they have signed the waiver.  Once they have done that we will switch them to “accepted”.

Individual Registration – Individual player registration is $200 until February 9th, 2018.  Online registration will close after this date.  On site registration is $220. Your registration fee includes:

  • Your player’s pack (disc, cup, swag item, et cetera)
  • Camping Friday-Sunday night (our permits do not cover Thursday)
  • All dinner, parties and entertainment Friday-Sunday
  • Breakfast Saturday, Sunday and Monday

REGISTRATION & PAYMENT:  All players who registered online MUST ALSO REGISTER IN PERSON at the tournament before they play. On-site registration will be open Friday, 2/16 from 5:00 PM – 8:30 PM and Saturday 2/18 from 7:30 AM – 10:00 AM (except during opening ceremonies at 8 AM, so plan accordingly). If at all possible, please plan on registering Friday night, we’ll make it worth your while by providing dinner, drinks, and live music.  Online registration is closed.  You will be able to register on site.  We will accept cash or credit cards.

**We cannot guarantee a full players pack to those who register after January 1st**

Note: lunches are *NOT* included, but there will be vendors on site.

PARKING: There will be limited parking available at the field, each team captain will be given 2 parking passes to distribute amongst their team on Friday, 2/16.  Cars without parking passes will not be allowed to park at the polo fields.  You may park across the street at the Waimanalo Bay Beach Park lot or find neighborhood parking.  Please carpool, if possible, and respect parking signage and cone-age.  You will be directed where to park once you enter the gate, please be mindful of driving slowly.  THE GATE TO THE POLO FIELDS WILL CLOSE and LOCK AT 10:15 PM.  Please plan accordingly or your car will be locked in.

POLICY FOR NIGHTLY GUESTS: We’ve unfortunately experienced thefts in past years.  In order to minimize unpleasantness, ALL GUESTS MUST BE REGISTERED BY A PLAYER SPONSOR.   If you still haven’t registered your guest, please do so Friday night or Saturday morning on site. Their name will then be on the guest list, which security will have at the gate.  The goal is to make sure that everyone at the party is a player, directly associated with a player (spouse, friend), or other member of the ultimate community. Each guest will need to have a registered player sponsor.  The nightly fee for guests is $30, and the fee for the entire weekend is $85. Wristbands will be supplied at the gate as guests enter the polo fields or at the registration table if it’s still open—there will be specific guest wristbands for each night and an “entire weekend” guest wristband.

SECURITY AND POLO FIELD GATE CLOSURE: We will have security at the polo fields gate at all times as well as at the camp sites.  Please make sure you keep your wrist bands on for easy entrance to the party.  The gate to the polo fields will CLOSE AND LOCK AT 10:15 PM EACH NIGHT.  If you are parked at the fields and wish to drive out that same evening you need to leave by this time.
VALUE YOUR VALUABLES! Sometimes people’s valuables wander away at tournaments, and camping tents don’t provide a lot of security. If you have valuables with you that you would like to check in for the duration of the tournament, let the registration crew know when you register on-site on Friday evening or Saturday morning. We’ll lock them up somewhere safe, though of course we will not be liable if something happens to them.  PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR TENT, CAR, OR UNATTENDED.

 

CAMP IN THE RIGHT SPOTS!  Check out the maps at registration to see where camping is permitted: tents must be set up within the tree line and not on the beach!  YOU MAY NOT CAMP AT THE POLO FIELDS.  Parking at the campsite closes at 7:30 pm, don’t get locked out!       

As you are heading to the beach and if you visit other parts of town, please be respectful to the locals.  And while we hire security for the Polo Fields and for the Campgrounds, if you leave those areas or are traveling between them be sure to travel in pairs for safety. 
HELP US REDUCE WASTE! In order to reduce waste from the tournament, we will not have disposable dinner trays.  Instead, YOUR DISC IS YOUR PLATE!. We’ll be providing disc-covers with each dinner so your disc doesn’t get dirty and also a disc-cleaning station in case it does. We know that sometimes doing the right thing is less convenient, and we appreciate your understanding.  Feel free to bring your own reusable silverware to reduce waste even more.

WE PARTY HARD AND WE PARTY EARLY: As in past years, we need to cut out amplified music by 10 PM out of respect for our neighbors. ALL MUSIC NEEDS TO BE OFF BY MIDNIGHT INCLUDING SMALL PORTABLE SPEAKERS.
DIRECTIONS TO THE FIELDS: By car… From the airport, Waikiki, or anywhere in Honolulu—get on H1 East. Take it until it ends! H1 turns into Kalanianaole Highway, which passes by Hawaii Kai, Hanauma Bay, Sandy Beach, Sea Life Park, and through Waimanalo. When you see the McDonald’s on your right, in Waimanalo, you’ve got less than a half-mile to go. The fields will be on your left; camping is at Waimanalo Bay Beach Park, on your right.  (Remember, try to be there Friday night to register!)

By bus… From the airport—get on bus 19 or 20 heading towards Waikiki Beach. Get off at Hotel and Alakea. Cross Hotel Street, walk up lakea a few meters (by the District Court House) and transfer to bus 57 heading towards Kailua/Sea Life Park. The bus ride is 30 minutes to an hour after you transfer, so be patient! Get off at the bus stop right outside of the Waimanalo Polo Fields/ Waimanalo Beach Recreation Area.   Officially, no luggage is allowed on the bus, so pack light! From Waikiki—catch bus 58 heading towards Hawaii Kai/Sea Life Park from any of a number of bus stops on Kuhio Avenue. After a long (45 min or so) ride, get off in Waimanalo at the bus stop right outside of the Waimanalo Polo Fields/ Waimanalo Beach Recreation Area. Bus rides are $2.50 one way.

MERCH: Merchandise from Five ultimate will be on sale at various points throughout the weekend.
PLAN FOR THE HAT DRAW!  The annual Post-Kaimana Hat Draw is being held in Hilo on the Big Island the weekend after Kaimana (Feb. 24-25). It’s a short flight and the Hat Draw is always a blast, with players from around the world.  Check here for more Hat Draw info:  https://ultimatecentral.usetopscore.com/en_us/e/hilo-hat-draw-2018

 

WE RELY ON OUR LOVELY VOLUNTEERS!  If your team would like to help out in some way, please contact our volunteer coordinators, Dine (dinedvl@yahoo.com) or Pickles (dylan.lilla@gmail.com).
