Polo Camp II, baby.

DC Bike Polo invites all takers to a weekend of camping in the woods and polo on two flawless side-by-side full-size street hockey courts in Frederick, MD (45 minutes west of Baltimore, 45 minutes north of DC).

Slightly less pick-up weekend this time, slightly more fun times tournament -- bring your own team of three, or bring yourself and we'll put a team together for you. Lots and lots of swiss rounds games on Saturday and Sunday, with a single elim playoff for the top handful on Sunday afternoon. Basically, everyone plays all weekend, hopefully 16+ games per team.

OUT THIS YEAR: Bands, Skill Competition
IN THIS YEAR: The musical selections of RVA Bike Polo, tons and tons of swiss rounds games

CAMPING: On 34 acres in nearby Adamstown, Maryland (15 minutes by car). Comes with grills, bonfires, and ice cold beer. Bring your tent and grillable food products. Feel free to arrive Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. People can spend the night Sunday night as well.

COSTS: $20 per person covers the whole weekend.

REGISTRATION: Please register by signing up here. The format would work best with 16-20 teams, if its much more or less than that, we might make some changes.

DIRECTIONS: Send me an email for directions and a map.

There are no better courts in polo. IMHO, this place is begging for a bench minor. Huge courts, deep benches... it would be magnificent. I cannot wait for this trip. This may be my favorite trip of the year

Throw-in Bench Minor. Pick teams gym class style.

do like.

Oh my. Just a couple of weeks away. Assuming the weather isn't complete shit there are at least two of us from Pittsburgh planning on riding down this year.

Missing out this year. I'm in Seattle. Have fun! I'll be thinking of you all.
Not a Throw-In Tourney this year? too bad. I learned a lot that way.

...those days are over.


I'm a newbie w/o a team, but I will be there.

-DFL folife

no bikes, just futsal

Alright, ten days and counting.

Drivers: Please send me an email to ransom@dcbikepolo.com and I will send you directions and a map.

so to clarify…you're making teams?
I for one love the idea of playing with 2 folks I don't
usually get the chance to have as teamates.

fuck ur face

If only some teams are made and there's just a pool of random people being put into teams, why not just put everyone in random pool?

I'm fine with either. It sounds fun to play with people I don't normally play with.

Combination of choice: Smash + Bang

Anybody from the south going? I can give a ride!

I'm showing up with a team but for the record am into random matchups.

Chombo, if people come with teams they want to play with, I'm not going to break them up. Everyone else can put together teams at camp or I'll put them together. So far I think only 3 or 4 teams are set, and there will be like 16 teams worth of people.

If you want to defend the title, I think you have to steal Greg from Pittsburg, and start heckling Ian—sounds like he's planning on staying home like a bum.

Hes scuurd


he has every reason to be.

fuck ur face

IAN has nothing to be afraid of
except endless heckling for forever & perpetuity throughout the universe (both Marvel and DC) if he doesn't show up to this to play with me and greg.
that goes for greg too

I'm a gonna pop BOTH your tires this time!

fuck ur face

who's going up Friday Night? Mehgan and are trying
to tie up some loose ends and will make the trip if folks
will be there.

fuck ur face

Sounds like at least a crew from Pittsburg and some RVA/Charlottesville peoples are planning on Friday. If you're coming on Friday, plan to arrive after 3:30 / 4:00ish.

If you're planning on coming up Saturday morning, we'll head from camp to the courts around 10:00 and start some pick-up games, and then try to start a round-robin bracket around 11:00 or 11:30.

how late do the lights stay on???


Lights until 9:00pm on Saturday, no lights on Sunday.

i guess i could have just texted you...


werm, baby joey, sean

i think there are rule AGAINST tiny hats. so leave yours hat home, tea drinker!

tiny hats required. no teams. shuffles count.


I'm pretty sure we're not FWENDS!!!
