I POLO NY: Bike Polo Tournament
Some of you mentioned to Cecily and I at the last couple of tournies that a mid-summer polo round-up in New York would be simply delightful. So we're organising for the weekend of Jun 20th and you can bring either delight of terror to NYC!! We're ready... ...All day Grudge Matches/Team Pick-Up on Saturday. Double elimination, battle to the bones, on Sunday. Come with a team, or don't. Maybe you'll get to play with them, maybe you won't. Everyone must bring a prize: make a disc wheel; write a polo anthem; bake cookies!!! Bonus points awarded for most creative prizes. Friday night BBQ, Saturday night Bicycle Film Fest Party. Get your crayons out kids!
Hey Guys! So Cecily an I made this tournament our excuse to grab a couple of 2-for-1 beers after work the other evening and below are the updates to our grand plan... Team Formats - NY has your back: TEAM UPDATE: We're changing our minds...again. TEAMS OF THREE. MUST HAVE AT LEAST TWO CITIES REPRESENTED. BONUS POINTS FOR TEAMS WITH THREE CITIES REPRESENTED AND FOR TEAMS WITH NYC PLAYERS ON THEM. Prizes: As we said before we expect y'all to bring something you cooked up at home. You may also invent a category for which to award your prize (Eg: Best smile; flukiest goal; worst haircut etc. etc.) We will also have some locally donated prizes in case the hand-crocheted underwear you won for practically having babies with another player during a tumble doesn't do it for you! Schedule: Fri 6/19 Registration/BBQ party, location TBD Sat 6/20 Tournament play 10am - 4pm with a couple of hours in the middle for pick-up and munchies. Bicycle Film Fest Street Party followed by another BFF party somewhere else. Sun 6/21 Final games followed by pick-up and prize-giving 11am-4pm BFF screening at 7pm includes Bike Polo movie so we should all try to support it. After that y'all can go home! Housing: Please email Cecily (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need a place to stay... If you already know you're gonna stay with a particular person please let Cecily know anyway so she's not losing sleep worrying about where you're gonna lay your pretty head. I think that's all for now... Oh...dancing shoes, bring your dancing shoes! Fiona
