A " Hoedown" was, and occasionally still is, also used to mean a dance jointly sponsored by several dance clubs or by a federation of clubs.        Wiki

Bike polo is like a dance party on your bike!      Jackson

Open invite for the summer in Asheville. Our local hockey club doesn't play during the summer so the medium sized roller hockey rink is open for the weekends! Weekday nights too.
We play every Sunday from 4pm til dark! Sweet as fuck court and it's lower temperatures than anywhere else in th SE! We got rivers, lakes and mountains!
Housing and all that shit too!
Stoked as fuck for the HoeDown in Charlotte!
We play hillbilly style!!

The rink is sweet! Pick up is plentiful and temperature is coooooool.

We are also claiming team name: Cape Fear Fuckaneers / Pirates (Black Jerseys with Jolly Roger Logo)

Fuck yeah!
Bring the ruckus!!!

Now in freewheel flavor!!

Registration will begin this weekend, it will be ready!!

Every other game will be a "Throwdown Hoedown", essentially a throw in by team. You will also be able to challenge other teams directly if you think you've got the skills to pay them bills (think, you just got served)!
Teams will be scored by tourney wins, points and hoedown wins(also overall awesomeness)!

All teams will required to wear matching team shirts or jerseys from their state of origin. They can be your local high school team, college or pro team from your area. When you register, claim your teams (team) name also.

ex; Team Bitch Slappers / TPA FL / Marlins, Team Nuts on Chin / AVL NC / TarHeels. I really want to promote regional pride!!!

Asheville's A team claims TarHeels!!

If you fuckin whine and claim to be so poor, your team still has to wear matching colors, or play shirtless(Ladies too, legal in N.C.)!!

AVL claims TarHeels, thank you.

Fuck ya yall! Getting super stoked to see everyone, this is gonna be a party!!

Now in freewheel flavor!!

Asheville's A team?!?! I don't think you know what Kori, Gabe and I just got brewing!

First throwdown before the tournament has even started! For glory!

UPDATE: We settled this today. Jackson is correct. With a 5-1 win, we are in fact the Asheville A team.

5-TWO!!! And I'm gonna be a sore loser and blame it on mechanicals.... But A team until surprise victory at the tourney ;)

Rollin' rollin' rollin'
Though the streams are swollen
Keep them dogies rollin'

We're rolling out west to Asheville! This means more courts, more beer, and more polo. What's not to love? This is going to let us throw an even better tournament so hang on to the reins! Now if you have outstanding warrants or ex's in Asheville or travel is tough let me know and we'll fix the problem.

Where's the rink at in Asheville? I'm gonna be in town visiting family Sunday. If y'all are playing I might try and swing by.

500 Amboy Rd Asheville, NC 28806. Head up the big wooden bridge and you'll spot the hockey rink. Now once you arrive spin around three times, do a bunny hop, and present your beer as an offering and you may enter.

I just want to make sure everyone knows:
