The THR will be off-skates and available during the whole tournament. Please do not hesitate to approach them with any questions or comments. The THR is there for this very reason, and they'll be glad to answer you!
Friday / Saturday Registration
Registration will be held at the entrance of the venue, on the Friday night (starting around 18h). Participants who can't make it on Friday will be able to register at the venue on Saturday, starting around 7h. Registered participants will be given an all-access bracelet that will be used on both Saturday and Sunday - don't throw it out! Those bracelets are required to access the locker rooms, the warm-up zone, and other restricted areas.
The Friday exhibition game is free to attend for all participants (registered skaters, coaches, officials, etc).
Friday Teams Meeting
The teams meeting will be Friday around 21h, which should be about 20-30 minutes after the exhibition game. We will use one of the unused locker rooms. You can send whoever you want - team captains, coaches, or other delegates. For teams who cannot make it, please send someone to see the THR on Saturday before your first game for a summary.
Friday Officials Meeting (Team reps can attend if they want)
Sunday Night Party
With the tournament done by 18h, we'll have plenty of time to party! Details coming...
Players who are not insured through WFTDA, RSC, CRDI, or USARS must pay a fee for the weekend. This does not grant them any insurance.
Teams are allowed to have 20 players and 4 staff members registered for the tournament. Players may only be on a single team's roster, and can only skate with one team.
Team rosters should be composed of players who normally play with their team, any exception should be run through the Beast registration contact email. We will be more flexible this year due to a number of leagues being low on players due to travel team events.
Teams may select up to 15 of their 20 players to be on the bench for a game. Players can be moved to and from game rosters during the whole tournament. There will be a table near the officiating room with a roster sheet for each team that has more than 15 players on their team roster. For each one of their games, the team will be able to make an 'X' besides the players that are being removed for that specific game - ie. those that won't be at the bench. A team's game roster must be turned in 2 hours before their game. The sheets should stay on the table.
Teams may have up to 4 staff members on their bench during a game. The staff cannot be wearing skating equipment - only rostered players can wear skating equipment. It is acceptable for staff members to be players or bench staff for other teams.
Team rosters will be here once they have been submitted and processed: Team Registration
Trying to pass a skater as another skater by switching uniforms or any other similar abuse of the roster system will amount in a possible automatic forfeit of the game regardless of the actual final score. Other sanctions may also apply.

The warmup schedule will be available online before the event. A link will be posted here (TBA).
On the document, the first team column is the "top slot" and the second is the "bottom slot". This refers to where the team's name appears on the game schedule - every game has a team placed on top, and one on the bottom.
The warmup for a game starts exactly when the previous game starts. Each team gets 15 minutes in the warmup area, and the rest of the time is shared amongst the teams as they see fit.
GAME SCHEDULE AND RESULTS
An always up-to-date schedule with teams names and previous results will be posted just outside the officiating room. You may see other copies throughout the venue, especially near the locker rooms - they may not always be up-to-date.
There are 4 locker rooms that will be shared by 13 teams. While the sharing schedule and/or strategy is still being planned, there will be signs on the doors of the locker rooms to identify which room teams should use. Understandably, there is not enough room in the locker rooms to leave gear there between games. We will try to set up a location for gear to be left within the arena, and while we will try to keep it free from snoopers, we can't be held responsible for missing equipment.
There is usually ample street parking near the venue. Please read the signs carefully near the venue. This section will be updated with precise information shortly.
It's a generally calm area, but we still don't recommend leaving any valuables visible.
