Golden Spring Fling Short Court
The Golden Townie Bicyle Fraternity/Golden Polo League are wanting to
throw a spring polo party and want to see who would be down with
making the trip to our court. I'm sure there are loads of Calgarians
who'd come. Boys of Van, you in! Hopefully the sun will shine, the court will be dry and the snow on the side of the court will give us a nice tan!
The date hasn't been set in concrete yet. Might be the next weekend also. It justed asked for dates.
***UPDATE Date has been changed to the Easter Long weekend. So now all you slackers from the Coast can get up here and enjoy the real mountains. *******
+++UPDATE 2++++ HELMETS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS TOURNAMENT. IT IS A STIPULATION OF THE INSURANCE WE GOT. +++
- Bike on Bike
- Mallet on Mallet
- Body on Body
- No shuffle goals counted
- No passing thru goal
- After a goal, the scoring team must return to their half of the court
and remain there until the ball is brought across the line. The scored
upon team has to wait for the “reset” before they can bring the ball
past center court - no surprises/tailing the now-defending team as they
cross the line.
- If ball goes out of play- opposite
team's ball, from location of outage.
- Start is 1,2,3, Polo
- Stopages for beer are allowed. Currently opened beer only.

- Helmets are required for Tournaments.
No Lid, no play.

I will have a list ready of rules when you arrive. This is just an outline. So far.
