Any update for the waiting list by now?

No, peoples are waiting.

Hi people, i need a club to play at this amazing tournament.

Hi, any changes regarding the waiting-list yet?

no phlpp, teams list are all confirmed.

Hi, Tobia - if all the teams on the spot list are confirmed by now - frankly - do you think that all the teams on the waiting list are out and they will have no chance to play at Polorama?

Yes, hard to get in, 44 teams are really maximum numbers we can host and almost all buddy's have confirmed their presence. We were very surprised how many teams wanted to come and now is too late to doing an three days the tournament.

It's not really my business, Tobia, on the one hand, personnally, I'm coming for sure, and on the other hand, I'm quite certain that you handle all this with the required care and dedication, I also understand that you can't give some hope to everybody, but nevertheless, I wonder why you say that (almost) all teams confirmed, give a kind of "no way" to every waiting team (which is already bizarre, because we know you and me that there is always missing teams), and why on the same time Jamal said to me just right now that he is not coming to Padova with EHVFXD ...

If I would be in the situation of teams on the first places of the waiting list, with real chances to come and the motivation, I would also want to know in time if there is any reasonable chance to come.
I'm sure, you understand my altruistic concern.

We say "almost" because more than 90% of teams ask us generical infos. But this is not enough for a definitive list. At the beginning of next week (tuesday) we will ask to all teams to confirm their presence by the payment of the registration fee via paypal. At that point we will know the exact number of partecipants .Then we can open up to teams in the waiting list. Until now no one ask me to be cancelled from the tournament (included EHVFXD), perhaps in a few days will be different. I hope that a month will be enough for teams that may come from the waiting list to organize their trip.
Ciao

Hi, Tobia - that sounds really good - team "la poloma loca" is still hoping to get a spot (maybe we should start some voodoo magic next week for help ?!?)

Hi, Tobia - the teams on the waiting list got the newsletter #1 too. Should they pay the registration fee in advance ?

Hi I heard that the payment for the tournament is due today and I sent an email last week but have not received any information about where to send the payment. What's the paypal address?

Edit: Nevermind I just got the newsletter. Just paid for team P.I.L.F.

Hey Tobia, or someone else of the organisation; can you maybe post some info about public transportation from the airports (Treviso, Marco Polo) to Padua ?

Thank you!

is not clear?

anyway, from all airports (Venezia-Treviso or Venezia-Marco Polo) take a shuttle bus to Mestre train station and then catch the train to Padova, you can bring your bike outside the bikebag only in the local train.

Special BIG thanks to RC Vicenza and Rode Padova for the big work you done for us.

Ok now, where are the pictures and videos?

Thanks for everything. Courts was awesome (nearly the best courts for bike polo ever, size and surfaces get 10/10). Nets are pretty awesome, also the best i've seen, before that ours was first in my heart, but top bar lower than NA standard looks like the best, avoid weird nets and hand on nets playing.

All the stuff was great, people, food, drink, location, youth hostel at 4 min from courts, city, polo played, mood...
