How to Register:

IMPORTANT - NEW Registration procedure this year

There will be a new registration/payment procedure this year! In an attempt to make the entry process fair and reasonable for everybody who wishes to attend, we will be selling registration spots through the EventBrite website. Please note the following very important details:

Registration Opens at: Thursday, October 22nd at Noon Mountain Daylight time (that's 11am Pacific, 1pm Central, 2pm Eastern)
Registration Closes: Thursday, November 5th or when all spots are purchased
Registration website:
Registration payment methods accepted: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover
Registration Payment Amount: $100. This non-refundable deposit secures your team's spot and will count toward your team's entry fee, provided payment in full is made by the team-payment deadline (failure to pay in full may result in your team's spot being offered to a team on the waiting list). Once your deposit is paid and your team's spot is secured, we will send you a roster form and you may pay the remainder of your entry fee, along with banquet fees, T-shirt purchases, Battle's-Eve entry fees, etc. via check or PayPal:
Check: Make payable to DAUHC and mail to:
Philip Hickey
528 Welch Ave
Berthoud, CO 80513.

PayPal: Make a personal money transfer to our NEW Tournament Paypal Address -

Total Entry Fee cost: $800 per team. This includes all development fees. Your $100 registration fee counts toward this total. Late fees may be added - see below

Team-payment deadline: Thursday, November 19th at Noon, Mountain Standard time.

Any registered teams that have not paid in full by the above deadline will be moved to the end of the wait-list (and their entry fees will increase by $50). We will then start offering spots to teams at the front of the wait list for the original entry fee ($800 total). Wait-listed teams will always have 14 days to pay in full or be moved to the back of the wait list (and have their entry fees increased by $50). We will continue in this manner until Monday, January 4th, 2015 or until all spots are paid for or no more teams are interested.

Team rosters may include up to 12 players. If your team is bringing additional people for the pot-luck, banquet, etc., please list them under 'Additional People'. Individuals without teams are also welcome to come for just the pot luck—no need to send a roster form, just shoot us an email.

Banquet will be the same place as last year Abe's Bar and Grill

The Pool:

The Carmody pool is 6.5-7.5 feet, surfaced with Oyster Quartz (a fine-grained aggregate finish). The lane-lines, center spot, penalty shot, and 5-and-2 markings are done in 2-inch tiles, and the interfaces between the tile and the Oyster Quartz are flush and smooth. Our brass pucks are positively “lively” on this bottom.

Additional Details:

All standard USOA-sanctioned tournament rules will apply (ear/mouth-guards, Minnesota rule, etc.).
All 2016 USOA dues and waivers should be taken care of through USOA *prior* to your arrival in Denver. There will be a $10 late fee for paying/signing at the tournament. The 2016 USOA waiver will be available for download from the USA UWH website: For USOA payment questions, please contact Wendy Okafuji at

Copper Mountain

The Ski-O-Rama:

Let's hit the slopes!
We ski the Monday after the tournament - and since it's Martin Luther King Day again this year, we hope it will be even easier for you to take the day off and join us on the powder. Let us know your interest - whether you want to ski, snowboard, snowshoe, hike, sled, or just hang out. We will make every attempt to keep costs down so you can see what Colorado is really about.

The Shirts:

Shirt details to come

The Banquet:

Banquet will be the same place as last year Abe's Bar and Grill

The Prizes:

Prizes given separately for both potluck and team tournament; details to come. You know they'll be awesome, though ;)
