I have performed the initial schedule for Sunday (It will be awhile for Saturday) and it looks like everybody will be home
by dinner on Sunday. The last game looks like 3:30
8:04 am pdt
Also, New rule for the Tribal Council will be that the
player is wait for the whistle of the referee before attempting the shot. If the player does not wait and the shot is
good, a re-kick will take place, if the shot is missed, it is missed no retake. This replaces the FIFA rule of regardless
if the shot is made or not, the kick is retaken basically benefiting the player who missed. FIFA on this instance does
not have common sense.
Because of more teams and an extra field, you veterans will notice more of a time gap between
games. I always felt Survivor Sunday should be minimal rest between games but we have to have a larger gap between games
to account for the potential of more Tribal Councils. Seems like we are getting more tie scores on Sunday and we feel
that we might have the possibility of not getting all Tribal Councils in before the next game.

I am getting several requests to be placed on the waitlist and wanting to know what their chances are. I really dont
know what anybody chances are. Several factors go into determining if a team is pulled off the waitlist. Last
year, I pulled 8 teams from the waitlist in different age brackets. Waitlist opportunities goes in waves. The
first wave is happening know as brackets fill up and I approach my top ceiling number of teams entering. I have room
for 196 teams in the U-11 and above. Currently I have 194 which I will pull 2 more teams. The second wave happens
around the middle of April when refunds are given at 100% Teams will have to decide if they want to stay in or not.
A few will pull out which clears some openings. Another time will be when we get done with scheduling and we see how
many holes we have and evaluate whether we can add 2 teams or not. Another time is right before tourney time when a
team will back out. S

So, opportunities come in different times and is hard to predict how they will play out.
Again, thanks for your interest in the Yak Attack. We know that there are many tournaments to choose from and we are
gratefull that you choose the Yak.

Well we are down to the final teams coming in. Currently I have 3 openings for a GU-9 bracket, 1 spot for a BU9 and
looking for a BU-14 team. Otherwise I am full in all other age brackets. I am getting numerous requests from teams
wanting to be on the waitlist so if there are some teams already accepted and dont think you can make it, then let me know
so that we can get a team who wants in. I will refund your money.

Many teams are surprised that it filled
up so fast. One the main reasons it filled so fast is that the teams who couldnt get in were one of the first teams
to register this year. This will happen again next year.
I wish we had a bigger park to accept more teams
but as my kid would tell me "it is what it is"
