is there any room left in this tournament??? also probably going to come by myself if there is still room. Anyone want to play with an ex southerner?

no dont bother

great response smokerdave...you really cleared that one up for me....don't bother because the tournament is full or what? If that is the case maybe you should let people know if it is full because I still have people trying to team up with me

you should try reading SOUTHEAST REGION ONLY

I see that now, but considering that when this tournament was first posted on LOBP it didn't say southeast only. Also the fact that your name is still under the Who's new section explains why you don't seem to be up to speed with most things. So I'll forget your rudeness.

epiphany! -make up a fake LOBP account, so I can be an asshole to Shelley without everyone knowing who I really am. Really classy.

hey shelley, sorry about the drama. smoker dave is not one of our players, and is not involved with the tournament in any way. he is a former ATL polo player (who no longer lives here) that is pissed because he isn't able to play the tournament, and is trying to mess with our LOBP account. i'll give you a shout and we can talk about the registration details.

No biggie...I know who smokerdave is. I've already talked to Packard about the tournament. It's sounds fun you guys have a good time...thinking about going down for Hipolo...maybe I'll see you guys there.

[quote]pissed because he isn't able to play[quote]
Maybe you should reword this Brent, We are fully "able" to to play, we're just not being allowed to play in the city that we helped to found, created a reputation for, and even gave assistance to for this tournament, after you invited us. So fuck you and those pussies from Milledgeville that are too scared to play some real polo.


boo hoo. less drama, more polo!

Arena Polo is sending prizes now too! They make awesome heads, shafts, and other polo goods! Check out their website http://www.arenabikepolo.com/ and facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ArenaBikePolo?fref=ts

Loose Nuts Cycles (voted Atlanta's best bike shop, and also owned by an ATL polo player) is offering up a couple of amazing prizes. You'll have to wait until the tournament to find out what they are though! In the meantime, like them on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/loosenutscycles) and check out their website (http://www.loosenutscycles.com/)


Player-owned and operated St. Cago is in the mix! Check out their mallet, brake, and apparel offerings at their website (http://www.stcago.com/), and like them on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/StCago). Thanks guys!!

An extra special thanks goes to Lifecycle Building Center; one of our tournament "sponsors" who worked with us behind the scenes. They helped us source 100% reclaimed wood (from the set of "Last Vegas", recently filmed in ATL) within our budget, and were the primary reason why we had such awesome courts!

They are great folks, and a valuable resource for our city. Please check out their work here: http://www.lifecyclebuildingcenter.org/ and show them some love on facebook https://www.facebook.com/LifecycleBuildingCenter!
