Awww yeah! What's up with housing? Or hotel deals?

EDIT: ATTENTION ALL ATTENDING POLO PLAYERS:

I plan on renting a hotel room for this, and I MUST HAVE a room that is equipped with a hot tub (in the room). I need 4-5 players to go in on the room with me. The room will optimally have 2 beds, a couch, and 2 cots (extra cots are usually cheap at hotels). Who's in for the "polo party suite"? I'll check on rooms & rates, but I'm just seeing if anyone is interested. A room with a hot tub in it? SHAZAYUM!!!!! POLO PIMPS!!!!

•Estimated costs: $100-$200 per night 2 bed 2 bath FULLY FURNISHED places with futons or sleeper sofas for thirds.
•$100 non refundable cleaning fee
•Approx. $100-$200 per person fully refundable deposit.
•Compared to $225 a night at the red rock for starting rooms, without good storage for bikes, and less space. (veterans day weekend)
•Currently has 2-5 properties potentially available on the west side/summerlin, and even more for longer term (week or two week)
•Many properties have community pools and spas, and quite a few with full two car garages for safe bike storage.

Contact Michele Pombo at 702-871-5177 during standard business hours, 09:00-17:00 PST.
Her assistant Lee Jones will also be able to help.
State how long and how big of a property you'd like, preferably on the west side to be close to the tournament (keyword near desert breeze park), and they'll locate you into a property.
You can check out the website and take virtual tours at "swmg.biz" in your browser.
Have an even better time while you're staying in Vegas, with fully furnished homes and condos for rent at rates cheaper than local casinos and hotels.
(properties are also available nearer to casinos/the strip)

My house is available. If we get the location we want it will be a short bike ride. If the location doesn't pan out and we are on our home court it is about a 15 min drive

Edit: I know someone that got a suite at an older hotel called the gold spike for $90. One bed, a separate living room, a huge balcony, no hot tub. Driving/riding times will be about the same as from my house. The hotels downtown are typically cheaper and are closer to our ideal location. The strip is barely closer to our home court.

Edit 2: the ideal court location Is downtown. Our home court which is the backup is on the west side. Spring mountain and Durango. If we play downtown it will be asphault with plywood walls a la sacramento. If on our home court then street hockey court. Either way it will be 2 courts side by side

Uh i say hockey rink!

I had the pleasure of playing on these courts this weekend, and I have to say, they blow our home court out of the water... The Vegas cats know what's up.

I'll get a pic tomorrow.

the rink or where they are planning on throwing the tourny?
Depending on # of teams/lighting/location, hockey rinks are the way to go, nice on the tires, no board issues to deal with, and usually have a fence above the boards to hold the ball in play when it goes airborne. At most rinks i have been to there are benches outside for premium viewing, a penalty box, lighting system, toilets nearby (if its a rec center area), water fountains, etc...
But i am just being picky
go go hockey rink!

The rinks are a backup location. We are currently looking at an asphalt location near the strip. We would build up the walls.

At the rinks - (about seven miles from the strip) lights go off at 11, no alcohol allowed, no penalty box, there are water fountains that don't work on a consistent basis, and bathrooms.

Their home court. I didn't see where they plan to play downtown...

home courts have limited seating, but it'll do. No penalty box. Boards are about a foot high, with a fence separating the two courts.

I'll take some photos tonight. Keep in mind though, this is their Plan-B court...

oops.

Reserecting SAC RATS!! tsunami mike, Jake the scatman Langdon, Deaddog.

Salt Lake City BBPC group is planning on at least one team showing up maybe two.

Does this poster mean i can kick people?

Only Cody, you'll know him when you see him, he looks just like the guy on the poster including the missing tooth

Not cool...

I think Albuquerque may be bringing a team. Is there floor space available still?

As far as the court goes, I say hockey rink all the way! They are just so much smoother play wise.

How many teams will Vegas likely have?

You're the first to ask for space so there is still plenty. Vegas will have 3 teams, maybe 5

I want one of those shirts!!!!

Hockey rink Please..

"We don't need no education"

We will bring a stack of shirts for anyone who wants one.

We don't mind getting a hotel if space is limited, we are just trying to save more money for gambling!

We can bet on the polo tourney at Ceasar's right? lol

We want to have a Merch booth so everyone bring their club shirts if you would like.

Still plenty of floor space at my house, or grass space if you prefer camping

Idk if anyone's interested but Andre Nickatina is playing on the 12th at the hardrock! I think Imma go.

Barry Manilow is also playing on the 12th at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel. I'll be an awesome date if anyone wants to cover the $265 for me.

Sounds fun, but that's $265 more than I'd pay to see for Barry Manilow.

So excited! No Manor would like some floor space, we're bringing at least 4 and maybe some girlfriends.

Chris offered space at his place. Anyone interested should message him now to reserve a spot. I don't foresee him running out of space, if he does plenty of camping in his backyard.

Also the Info on the Southwest management Group (vacation rentals and short-term housing) is a good deal.

Fixinthestreets

plenty of space, bring your own air mattresses, linens, and towels as you see fit.

We can pack people in like sardines no problem.

8 miles to the court steady slight climb most of the way but not to bad.

2.5 miles easy ride to the bars in downtown vegas - East Fremont

Just send me a message if you need a spot

Explanation: after 12pm it was a pantless party. So the girls with dresses could particaipate we traded shirts for dresses.

P.S. Stop Lurking!

So Shitty, Pat, and I will be coming and driving in from santa cruz leaving around 4pm Friday putting us in town between 1-3am Saturday AM. We will need a place to stay so Pat and I dont have to sleep in a park again (and shitty in his own blood). Can anyone help us out? I guess we can sleep in Pat's truck but it would be nice to sleep horizontally.

you can stay with me as long as shitty promises not to use his face as a brake on my carpet

I made sure Shitty got to a couch at the 5lowershop yo! It was just the waiting to be told we arent getting picked up part that sucked!

I'll see if we can get him to agree to that. Rug burn could be just what he needs to peel his scabs.

Also I have just come to find that I am a team of one,so does anyone need a third?

brought to you by the good people at morningstar

I'm going to quote Jinxy here and ask about how you are handling registration. You guys really need to get a handle on how many teams are going to show up. As this is your first tournament, the fine Vegas weather in Nov. and your proximity to CA are you ready to host a tourney of ??? size. Don't count on posts or number of people "registered" those numbers are very unreliable. Get a Google spreadsheet up and have teams sign up if they want to play.

All your shots are block by I.

Hey, it's their first tourney, take it easy on 'em. Hell, I'm pretty sure LA didn't know how to do Swiss rounds our first tourney. It's not like one of the big tournaments, where everyone's invested and the organizers owe something to the players putting down big bucks to play. We're gonna have an awesome time in the desert.
Plus, two courts can run a 32 team double elim no problem, Portland did it.

polopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolo

Sorry Sarah, just trying to prevent headaches later. Plus everyone knows LA is filled with a bunch of Hollywood ditzes and valley girls so we wouldn't expect anything as complicated at swiss roads from you guys (just signed my own death wish uh). x2 on awesome time in the desert.

All your shots are block by I.

Talking shit bout where im from.. u sure did signed ur death wish, Hope to see u there.

"We don't need no education"

And I bet the people of ABQ are as bright as an unlit cave...

Ride, bake, polo, repeat.

Don't blame me I got it from TMZ

All your shots are block by I.

Courts don't throw tourneys, people do. And the Portland peeps have thrown a lot of tourneys.

Hopefully some people are there to share experience in getting from reg to games to finals. And no one bitches if things don't happen like they did at whatever other tourney.

We really appreciate all of the input guys, every thought and concern brought up will help make this a better tournament. Stayed tuned re: registration, we are working it out. We will likely be using the computer program for swiss (I can't remember the name off the top of my head. Also, quazi is helping to put this on and his tournament knowledge has been invaluable. If you have any further questions or concerns please voice them, we want to do whatever it takes to make sure everyone has an awesome time especially after so many people were dissatisfied with the last Vegas tourney (which we werent involved with).

This tournament should go smoothly as we have picked up tons of pet peeves from other tourneys. This tourney will be organized as fuck. (no "Whats the score?", "I donno like 4 somethin?") We are making scoreboards, extra nets, having refs out the ass, and tons of other organizational shit. Dawg.

Poop.

In case anyone is wondering, everything is worked out with the parks department so there shouldn't be any issues on that front

What's the word on beer? (I'm not a drinker just looking out for others)

And me and like 6 other people are getting in at like 2 in the morning or so.

as far as drinking IN the park goes?
allowed.

through my understanding, we have to contain the drinking to only within the polo courts though.
no roaming around the park with beers, or whatever.

pass

Yes, drinking allowed in the fence. If you are not 21 be aware that there will likely be cops around as they park and watch us with binoculars from afar pretty regularly. No I'm not kidding, yes it's creepy

hey folks! just registered as a loose cannon.
and -- more importantly -- i am bringing my cameras to photograph the tournament.

Hooray!!! Excited :-)

Had both my teammates go on the DL. I'm still playing, so I listed myself in the loose cannons column in the spreadsheet. I'll be flying in tomorrow morning, land at 8:45. I think I can get to the court on time.

THANK YOU Brian, Chris, Cody, Dave, Ghabe, Lou, and Ryan-Who?-I Mean-Quazi, as well as the rest of our Las Vegas crew for this fatty labor of love that was CRANK GAMBLE.

We could have proceeded with the tournament, but there was no possibility of accomplishment without you all showing up and spanking us on our own courts/heckling or cheering but mostly heckling the poop out of each other on the sidelines. ;)

Thanks so much for helping us run such a smooth first tourney.

Thanks for the memories.

Thanks for the good memories Vegas!

-To Chris, for putting up with all of us for 3 days and 2 nights. And for showing good grace after finding someone's skid-marked undies in your hallway, and after some of your furniture was destroyed.

-To Dave and the rest of the Vegas crew, for all your time/money/effort in putting together a top-notch first tourney. And for putting together the fun party at the art gallery...that DJ was playing some jams for sure!

-To everyone I rode with in the van, for helping me get my stuff packed after I was paralyzed from food poisoning (not sure which food it was from), and for stopping on the road every time I had to puke/shit.

-To Brick, for poking me in the ear repeatedly with some kind of pointed object (stick?) on the van ride back to LA, and making me laugh even though I felt like shit.

where is the podium link? also thx vegas for a crazy weekend, really. glad LA could rep the hardest, i know we're loud - sorrrayyyyy!
