$5 on Cien being MVP and $5 on Cien's team reaching the podium. FMPAS* represent!

*Pronounced Foom-Pas, it stands for Former Minneapolitan Polo All Stars.

will, we should find out when people are coming into town so we can make arrangements to meet them at their respective weekend homes to unpack and such. is there an easy way to contact everyone signed up for the tourney that is staying with one of us?

AB your friendly meteorologist! i'm seeing 70% but i'm also seeing no inclement weather on radar for a long time. where do these magical showers generate from in the big sleazy?

YIP!

these phantom storms form from the ghost of katrina's past. or the 3 bodies of water that we're surrounded by. it will probably rain in some parts of the city for a short time. let's just hope it doesn't rain on the corner of canal and villere. if it does we'll have push brooms to move any water that collects on the courts. at least it's on saturday and not sunday.

i have perfect brakes and they work all the time!! never have to deal with them breaking and can still move around and stop on a dime! thats what the 180 skids are for :) haha now its time to go with a smaller gearing! 39-23 ? 35-20 ? i'm still not sure yet!

mike-polo

Fuck off

Time and tide will change your mind. Plus if everyone keeps on bugging you you will never change and then you'll hit a plateau. So its a win win for teams that want to beat you.

I know i KNow, i'm just playing homie. I ride a 39 - 22 . It's pretty sweet. After you get a good gear ratio, get some brakes.

Vacation Auto Reply

Thanks for your message! I'll be vacationing in the Bahamas for the next two months while I try and spend the new found polo fortune. I'll be sure to get back to you when the money runs out.

Daniel

But seriously... Will / Cien did all the planning, and as big Ducktales fans, took the proceeds to start their own Money Bin.

Saw him tonight, he said he's going to post details this morning or afternoon... or evening... sometime today. Everyone's been busy with the holidays and the semester ending.

Our apologies go out to Joshua Maes, C.P.A. and the rest of the polo community

Guess that wasn't very serious.

Oh shit. Neglected this for a bit. You guys were awesome. Sorry for the shitty weather Saturday. Our local meteorologist, Drizz, promised it would be sunny that weekend. Can't wait for the next one. We'll definitely do it bigger and hopefully yall can stay a few extra days and see the city. See everyone at BPSB!

Budget

In:

$855 - 19 teams at $45 a team

Out:

$500 - location
$310 - insurance (liability coverage for spectators and volunteers. participants signed a waiver. location required insurance.)
$50 - one day of (drunken) security
~$150 - odds and ends

Other:

$0 - all the wood for our boards was donated by white-spunner through the LEED recycling program
$0 - hours and hours of help from our locals
$0 - food and beer on saturday
$0 - bbq on sunday

That puts me at around $155 in the hole. Though I think I lost a couple of dollars of the registration money.

will, any more info on that LEED recycling program? i need some shit for a project and this sounds like a good idea. i do bids and shit for white-spunner. and my neighbor actually knows Mr. White-Spunner. any info is good info. thanks man.

Message Cien (Skapegoat) about this before he heads off to Africa forever next week. I think he just rolled up to the job site and found the right guy.

If you see a job site with several dumpsters all lined up, each one for a different material (wood, metal, plastic), that could be your ticket. You may want to find a reputable organization in your town to represent you on paper. We hooked up with the MBC here in New Orleans. I haven't seen the specifics of the agreement, but we are required to keep the wood and if we do get rid of it, it has to be handed off to someone else or recycled.

i'm no bob breck.

Location & Insurance -Ouch! Sorry that you ended in the hole a bit. I'd prefer to see clubs end (at least a bit) in the black. Thanks for giving the rest of us a glimpse into the finances of how you put your tournament on.

Instead of looking at it as "in the whole" you can look at it as, you spent $155 for all your friends to have an amazing experience.
Thanks for an AWESOME time!
I will be there again for sure next year.

Thanks for the good times! FTL is spoiled and has never played in the rain, but it was so much fun!
