Thread #1: http://leagueofbikepolo.com/nahbpc-2010
I'm trying to book my flight this morning, and I'm reading on the forum that registration is closed? Does this mean I can't get in now or what? Like to figure it out before I drop a bunch of cash on a flight....can someone shed some light on this for me?
i believe yesterday was the deadline for registration. kansas city also snoozed on this.
everything you have heard about me is true
I HATE YOU GUYS!!!
KC has a team registered...
"wear a face mask or duck" - Tall George
stick 2 da code, stop snitchin'
we do?? haha, we dont know what the fuck is going on. we ar terrible.
yea!!! hahahahahah you are playing on it! team #33 on the list
i registered a team but didn't pay for it and thank god i didn't because our team fell apart. the right person knows we won't make it, they'll figure it out. sorry for the inconvenience. and yes, we're terrible.
so you guys aren't coming now? there go all my fountain related heckles, thanks a lot...
wait... theres a list?
Get it together, elrod!
dude the registration deadline was posted a month ago. a couple teams still need a third, you coming on your own?
Hey. Are there people who still need a third? I'm coming after all... and need a team.
Your good justin. Johnny already had a team registered.
Thanks, for the call Johnny, and ya wasn't paying a lot of attention the last little while cause I've been working ridiculous hours, and was trying to get our tourney done with too....which went awesome
referees if necessary, but not necesarily refereeing
JUST A REMINDER.
I am turning 20 on Saturday. THIS WILL BE AWESOME.
(Are all the venues going to be cool about this? Because we'll have a grip of unhappy players if they're hassling the under-21 crowd.)
So Saturday night will be 21+ but nothing else would be. Sorry, i worked really hard on an all ages venue and it feel through last week and had to work to make this happen.
Plenty of great stuff in madison though so no worries.
make the JC thing on monday night
and here is a map of places MKE & MAD http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=1139193528978151...
Brooklyn, New York
So between the 6 courts and 3 days, how much pick up is expected??
Would it be worth my precious unemployment dollars to spend on gas to come just for pick up?
We will have at least three courts open for pickup every 30 minutes on friday in the AM and PM bracket. We will have less pick up on saturday but still plenty. Sunday will move down to 4 courts then 2 courts fairly quickly.
will these courts be available on thursday as well?
perhaps not the tournament courts, but there will definitely be pickup at the Thunderdome, which is two blocks from the Thursday night party. Corner of Paterson and Dayton on the roof.
So about four of us Lexington kids kind of dropped the ball when it comes to planning where we'll rest our weary heads and all of that, and now we're scrambling to get that sorted out (preferably on the free end of the cheap scale). Any floor spots left anywhere? Alternately, where are people camping at? 'Cause we're down to pitch some tents.
5 of us Chicago kids are planning on pitching tents too.
I think one of us figured out where, I'll get a hold of them tomorrow and bother you on facebook or call Chris.
Or I'll realize I'm wrong make another post asking about where to pitch tents.
You'll see. Unless you drilled out your eyes because they were too heavy.
Awesome. Chicago+Lex tent party. We'll bring the bourbon. Bother me on Facebook about it- I think Chris and Tiff got themselves a hotel room? Maybe?
Oh those fancy pants assholes.
Of course they did.
I'll bring the rum.
rELEASE the KRAKEN
"ok Mr. Schwinn fucking Armstrong!"
X173937 on tent pitching. It just makes me laugh. But seriously, who got room in thir tent for ol Jared. This weekend I'm an honorary lexingtonite right? I gottah stick with the crew seeing as there is only two south Florida player comin...
I'll bring the ruckus
.. And root beer
The two of us from denver are bringing a huge tarp so we will try to figure out how much space we can make underneath it.
We will bring the mile high goods.
So far as I'm concerned you'll be an honorary Lexingtonian, at least for the weekend. I'm sure we'll have room for you, even if it means I'll be sleeping under the stars while you dudes all sausage party it up in the tents. Which, I'll probably do anyway....
I bet we can make some crazy coverings with our tent/tarp powers combined (hey Denver, heeeeeeey). No matter what happens, I'm pretty excited about all of this.
Im going to use my former lexingtonian status to revoke any lexingtonian status that Maxx may or may not receive. Just saying. I play with this guy all the time, and he could never cut it in SEXY LEXY. I will not accept this.....
That will never work.
I'm pretty sure she's referring to jared/furies
and I don't need any status besides
C) Colorado Cup Winner
D) Chiller than you (naturally)
See ya Friday goony.
Sometimes you kill me.
Yo Chicago/Lexington, LA would like to get in on this tent pitching.
Here's my email. Aamaya13@gmail.com
I'll bring vodka.
Good God this work week can not be over soon enough! I'll be spending all afternoon tomorrow drinking High Life and tuning up polo ponies. I'll see you all on Thursday!
Bike Polo Ronin
hurry the fuck up week!
Who needs a third? I'm coming to the tournament.
I have a Cascadian "A" player available, all interested inquiries please inquire within.
okay, so we had a motel on hand since way back, but I had no idea how close token creek park was until I looked at Sam's map (thanks!)
are other people camping here? just called and got the following info; its too late to reserve a spot but they keep open 20-25 for walk ins. campsites are $16/night and allow 6 people w/ no limitations on amounts of tents/sleeping bags as long as they fit within the camping area. pretty sure the rest of my team+julia still wanna do the motel, but I'd rather do this if I can get some people to throw down on a site with me and if other crews are staying in this area.
Yeah, Token Creek is crazy ridiculous close if you have a car. I'd encourage anyone interested in camping to try and get a walk-up site there. If you get enough people early enough, you could conceivably take over enough available spots to have Tent City 2010.
even biking its only 5 miles away! given that stroughton road isn't too crazy!
It would be wiser to bike down Portage Road. Stoughton Road is a 4-lane divided highway, speed limit 55, though it does have a big shoulder.
even. better. (i didn't zoom in enough)
Token Creek it is.
Thanks for the help Sam, we'll work on that tent city, I think we've got all the makings for it.
Woah. I didn't look to see how far away it is. I want in! I haven't really figured out my arrangements so I just threw a tent in my bag and was hoping for the best. Someone hooking me up with a roof over my head would still be ideal though.
Good looking out, that sounds fantastic. Pretty positive that the car full of kids from Lexington I'm with will be willing to throw down on this with you.
Tent City 2010.
hell yeah it's on! George and Nick are in, as well as rest of den, tally, Amanda and possibly more sea, and with chi and lex..
I didn't think it was possible for me to get more excited for this weekend.
midwest polo camp? I think so
I'll still be in Madison this weekend, but everyone from Cleveland and Pittsburgh has punked out... #frowntown
I heard they went to Miami instead.
you should bring our flag or at least post naked pictures with it.
dammit, either Bob or Karate Jon have it and now I dont have time to get it from them.
To say that Pittsburgh punked out is unfair, whistle dick. I offered to sing show tunes to Baby McBastard in the car, but you refused, claiming that she's more of an disco fan. Tell the whole story, sir. #reallywouldalikedtoplaywithyou
tis true lomax, but as it turned out, even without your acapella showtunes, traveling with a 5 month old through chicago at rush hour is actually worse than i thought. I did not get a chance to play (or a solid nights sleep) all weekend. I may end up in Lex for midwests though....
Just wanted to confirm- it's okay for us to loiter around the courts over the next couple of days, right? I plan on hanging around there all day tomorrow, at least until all of L.A. has landed. So... if anyone wants to meet me at the courts around 9 a.m., feel free. Come hang out, I want to meet Madison people.
you mean the pickup courts or the tournament courts? i suppose there could be pickup at the tournament courts but they probably won't be finished by 9am tomorrow. but come hang out anyway, help build courts and then play on them.
I meant the tournament courts, since they're so close to the airport. 9 a.m. is just when my flight lands, I wasn't really expecting everything tournament shaped to be ready yet. I'm down to help set up, I'l see you guys there.
nice! it's a 10 minute bike ride from the airport.
I get in Thursday around Noonish, I'll probably go there since its so close, but I won't have my bike with me, Sent it with Zach. Be happy to help build some boards or whatever needs to get done.
nice! it's a 20 min walk. or call one of us and we'll grab ya. i'll email you #s
I'll be at the courts *probably* by 9. There is a lot of work to be done, but these courts are shaping up to be awesome. Anyone who is in town and can help, stop by!
Just wanna let people know that Token Creek is the best camping option at this point. It is close to the courts and has facilities. I would highly recommend folks to camp there.
Much better option then trying to sleep at the courts.
follow @nahbpc2010 on twitter if you want your team to get good courts and an easy schedule during the round robin.
corruption is getting cheaper and cheaper every day
Turns out I'm in Madison this weekend and not Geneva. I guess this way I can get the inside scoop on the NA players and take my spy notes back to Europe to prepare the Euro-boys for taking down all you USA dude/ettes.
Can't wait to see lots of you and meet whoever is coming to the World's and the London Open.
Party on Friday night?
Well you'll miss all those notes about players from the great white north. Advantage Canada.
MKE to MAD shuttle BUS! INFO IMPORTANT!!!!
Leaving ben's cycle on 10th and Lincoln in MKE at 7pm thursday night. arriving at High noon saloon Madison 1.5 hours later
BE ON TIME! Have cash looks like it will be under $20 a person. You will have to take wheels off your bike to get them all into the bus without blocking aisles. Kremin will be your bus captain. Please pass on to anyone who may not see this in time.
EighthInch will be there Fri,Sat, & Sunday. We will have extra bikes for community use, and we are providing the pickup court community mallets. We will also have crazy prices on mallet heads, shafts, or kits, and some of our other products!
If you have any special requests or want to order something to be brought to the courts- call us 1-866-995-9918. Talk with Noah or Brian.
South Florida loves eigth inch <3
Am I crazy or do I remember something about free haircuts in the bid process? I could really go for a trim in between games...
Martin is highly qualified and clearly has satisfied customers.
Don't think he's free.
Folks should play pick up at the thunderdome. We will try to have two courts up there. It will make it easier then folks heading over to MATC while we finish building courts.
It's funny how the forum turns into a ghost town the day before a huge tournament. The NA Poloverse is either in a car, on a plane, or playing pick-up either in Madison or here in Milwaukee.
- Beaver Boys * Milwaukee Bike Polo Club -
Or depressingly pestering friends that will be there while "working."
We should start a Not-Attending-Tournament support group.
Early in the weekend Rory takes the lead in voting for Most Annoying!!!

great tournament over 400 games played in three days. Thanks so much for making it a great weekend. No team played less then 11 games of polo.
damm the Top Dogs ended up 1st 2nd and 3rd... sickness
"We don't need no education"
Big honkin' PDF compilation of people wearing sunglasses at the tournament. If I shot you with that big annoying golden reflector, you may well be in this. If I didn't, I bet a couple of your friends are. Straight up headshots.
Could you post the stats of all the teams from Sunday.
x2 i'd like to believe that we made it out of 32nd place... but i can't bee too sure.
I'd also like to extend a huge thanks for all the work that was poured into this tournament. i can't believe how smoothly hundreds and hundreds of games actually went.
x2 on the smoothness! huge thanks to madison and vince for giving us all so much polo it physically hurts. great amounts of playing and spectating, I really liked the three day format.
party on squirrel friends, party on.
So much fun. So tired. The most well organized tournament i've ever seen. Many, many thanks to the Hunters and Mr. Walsh!
Highlight of the tournament was seeing the Piranhas (12 yr old arizona slayers) going deep into the sunday brackets (knocking out COMO A in the process and flooring everyone with their crazy grass polo windups). These guys are my new heroes!
thanks for the compliments but i really want to realize that it wasn't just me ben and kevin. So many people to thank.
Jon Atwell (court design, court building, filling cracks at 10pm on saturday night so that the courts would be in good shape for sunday morning)
Cyrus Roat (court surfaces, goals, building courts)
Leif Haven (courts, goals, parties, logistics, awesome stencils, scheduling)
Matt Robertson (courts, communication, parties, food)
Ben Hunter (food, courts, logistics)
Vince from como (scheduling) MVP
Big thanks to the Bloomington, IN and the Chicago for helping us finish the courts on thursday. We would have never finished it without you.
yes, saw them once before, so awesome to see such young people out there, that are as good as they are.
you didn't see shit
Nooooooo! I can't believe I missed that. I wanna see I wanna see I wanna see! Where are they?
did we get replaced as your heroes??!! damn
the NAHBPC photography release continues, one lousy image at a time!
Should hopefully have a solid PDF collection together soon in the same vein as the one I put together for ESPI5
( http://gustavhoiland.com/2010/07/01/espi-5-set/ )
But this image. This is working for me. I don’t know if there’s a particular focal point, but in some rudimentary tests I have determined that it may well be his back. Not entirely sure how that wins out over the other elements here, but on the plus side I just noticed the subtle tan lines from the sleeveless shirt he was wearing earlier. I think a big draw for me towards this image (and its brethren) is that it gives you all the time in the world to compare two people. What they’re wearing. Their posture. Where they plant their weight. Their height. Their hair. yadda yadda yadda. You can look as far into it as you want (and notice the way her shorts fade from blue into black and then hit that bright strip of interior denim, the three dimensionality of his shoes, the sunglasses in her hand, the wood piece in the bottom left corner…), or…
Isn't this all just a round about way of saying "nice ass"... Charlie ;)
pretty much. it's just me exhaustedly pouring words into my keyboard, trying to make sense of what's in a photo.
thanks... and it is a great photo.
I am so confused right now. Why is this weekend over. So much fun. I can't begin to thank everyone that made this weekend possible, luckily someone has already done this, so x2 to that. Thank you to everyone that I played for a great weekend of polo. I walked off the court smiling everygame whether I won or lost. It was so great seeig my polo family and I can't wait to see everyone at the next tourney.
thanks and praise to everyone involved, at all levels
so many memories made, so many debates begun
Vaughan is the correct spelling
rip Sugar Minott
I brought 54 balls to the tournament, and now I need to buy some more....if anyone liked those balls let me know, I can probably get a better price if I buy in bulk, and then split em up with people.....
Thanks to everyone involved with the tournament. Especially Jonny (and I guess Ben because of the whole egg thing).
I wanna thank my teammates nick, chris, and jah.
Best tournament format so far. I'm really digging Swiss rounds and double elimination. Timed games are the future. Hopefully 20 minutes is the max.
Crappy photos from my perspective. Complete with vague references and snarky commentary.
Departing from my exploration of sunglasses and the lighter side of polo, presento the HEAT RUSH AND DELIRIUM OF TOURNAMENT POLO... all in one image!
