Oh my. This makes my life difficult. Does anyone know if the montreal airport is close to where montreal polo is?

Boo same weekend as our qualifier. I did hope to attend and visit Montreal (also rep western Canada). Have fun!

Pretty sure they're on opposite sides of the island but the metro should get you there.

The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

The airport is outside the city proper. You need to take an express bus to get into town. It links up with a couple different metro stations and you should be able to put yourself within walking distance of polo using the metro, unless the court is out in the boonies somewhere.

The airport is close to nowhere. There is a public transit bus that runs into downtown for ~$7, or an express bus for ~$15, or taxis for a flat rate of ~$40. Once you're downtown, you be able to get to the courts no problem, for all the locations we are looking at.

where is the location for this?

is parc jarry confirmed?

The city is helping us find a place as we speak, but it will be around the Plateau/Old Port/Mile-End areas. Stay tuned for updates, basically, we should have a location nailed down shortly.

Whaaaat?!! I just booked a trip home to Mtrl not knowing this was happening! :)

I'll be in town! Someone play polo with me!!!

Let us know when you're here, or about to be here, and polo will be made.

Yesss! I'll be in town from may 23rd to the 2nd.

I'm liking this discussion!!

Oh boy oh boy!

polo polo polo ohno

whens out of region registration open?

or is there????? dun dun dunnnnn

natred, you should get on an in-region team, such as mark and i's.

I am trying to put together a Grand Rapids or Michigan contingent. I'm open to being a third on a fun team too! I can score many types of goals.

I may be looking to get in on this. I'm out of region[Boston]

In-region registration is today at 1pm ET.

So, everyone, in-region registration opened early. Something about HBP.org not doing time zones properly, or listing the wrong time on a 24-hour clock. In any case, register NOW if you can. I'll post again for out-of-region times to confirm when I find out exactly when it opens.

Matty and me are looking for a third, inregion would be coolest but we're easy

polo polo polo ohno

u guys still looking for a third?

oh shit, wrecked again!

Hey Perry, yes we are. Still interested???

polo polo polo ohno

Tyzun from Kdub - looking for a team. FB, or Msg me.

can i change my team name to the jiggling richards?

noted: the jiggle-dicks are all signed up.

We got an official YES from the Olympic Stadium, so we are now playing in the big leagues people.

Will there be large blocks of concrete falling into the court? cause that would really add a new dimension to the sport.

Fortunately, we are in an outdoor area, so the only risk is falling into the parking areas when the whole structure implodes. Kind of like a Batman movie or something.



will Youppi be making an appearance? can we rent him?

In NS region, may need a third or pair. Heaters bring it

/ / / B A D V I B E S / / /

Is there a 'close' date for registration looming, aside from when 32 team register?

Still looking to be a third. Bueller... Bueller.... Bueller?

I'm looking for a place to crash for this. Floor space or splitting a hotel is cool. I'm driving up from Boston, so I'll have a car.

Here is the poster!

Anybody take pics or vids?

theres a few here:



Thank you so much Montreal! I had sooo much fun! You guys did an awesome job for your first tourney and the location was soooo sick! Thank you Adam for playing with Jack and I last minute. After visiting Montreal, I have confirmed the fact that I want to move to Canada eventually. Will somebody marry me?! : ) Why are you all so cute and nice? I can't wait until my next Canadian trip to Ottowa in September!

Midwest is best!!

I echo the Canadian citizenship desire, for sure. I have pics to sort through. I guess I can post up a link when I get em on or y'all can add me on Big Brother.

Meg, thanks for being adorbs and keeping time while I was being the bad guy. Ottawa in September? That doesn't sound like Welcome To The Valley?

/ / / B A D V I B E S / / /

Colin-Thanks for letting me borrow your phone to time during the games you weren't reffing. Unfortunately, I can't make it to Welcome to the Valley because of Bench Minor in Ottowa in September. BM is one of my favorite polo tournies of the year and I really want to visit Ottowa!

Midwest is best!!

Don't forget your Blackhawks gear!

/ / / B A D V I B E S / / /

That Meg shore is sweet. We Haligonians had a blast. CANDO.

Awesome photo, Curtis! All of you Canucks are sweet and kind as well! My teammate, Jack, was telling me how much he has always wanted to go to Halifax. You all should host Northsides next year!! : )

Midwest is best!!
