With an emphasis on providing competitive experience in a supportive and festive environment, each competitor should expect to have several matches in a round robin and/or multi-round tournament format that could include a preliminary round robin and a bracketed final round.
Training Fins will be used at the tournament director's discretion based on the ability of the least experienced roller in each match. For more information on rules and regulations, please see USA Log Rolling: http://usalogrolling.sportyhq.com/w/rules-and-regulations
Registration includes free open rolling practice on Friday night at the same venue in the Key Log Rolling pools on Lake St in Wayzata from 5pm - 7pm. Come try out Key Logs and practice with other competitors.
*New this year: The Open Adult Men's and Women's divisions will be comprised of two rounds. The first round will consist of all abilities (beginner thru elite) competing together, round-robin-style. Based on the results from the first round, the competitors will be divided into two separate divisions for the second round. Awards will be given to each division. Here's why we're excited about all adult log rollers competing together:
1. New and aspiring adult log rollers will have a chance to compete against and gain experience from elite log rollers.
2. All abilities rolling together will create a larger and more diverse adult field, with the goal of encouraging those who have been "out of the game" to come back and compete in a fun and friendly atmosphere!
3. This is a chance for elite log rollers to experiment with techniques and maneuvers, post competitive season.
We look forward to seeing you there!
