Hello everyone!

We are finding that many ladies are saving their dough and bread and all their biscuits to head on up to Vancouver in May/other expenses/other commitments, so the successes of completing a co-ed team are slimmer than we anticipated!

We do have a solution of sorts:
The ladies that have currently signed up have been consulted and agree to play on TWO teams if it means that more people will be able to attend the event. This means that the team they are currently signed up on/the first team they register with will be their PRIMARY team, the team that they are helping to complete as coed will be their SECONDARY team. In this case, should the two teams that a single lady is a part of have to face each other she will play with her primary team and the secondary team can sub any other lady in for that game. It sounds more rigid than it will be I'm sure, but I do want the clarity there for all you sticklers [aka me].
This would also apply to any ladies that haven't signed up yet. If you plan to and would be into playing on two teams just let us know in the "notes" when registering and we can add you to the list. Or just sign up with two teams and let us know which is your primary team.

So, the ladies that are available and are confirmed registrants are:
Jasmine Jones ATX
Mo Grady ATX
Elise Fornell ATX
Kelly Strosser CHI
Kayla Story CHI
Britt Willey Schultz MKE
Jasmine Stevens Bloomington
Shelley Smith NYC
Kristina Kinsel ATX
Ann G. Linders ATX
Chandel Bodner ATX

Please take a look at the list and ask one of these fine ladies to join in your two-some if the only thing holding you back is that co-ed component.
Also note that this will adjust our registration fee from per team to PER PERSON so as not to punish anyone playing a double love life at the tourney!

We are coming back at you with a the details to our wedding extravaganza! Color theme, wedding schedule, cake, flower toss, speeches, and party times!

If you have any questions about this, or need help connecting with one of the ladies listed please email us at atxsavethedate@gmail.com

They're some lucky ladies-- double the polo, double the fun.

OH! that reminds me, thanks Tyler, there will be TONS OF PICK UP for you gents too!
we are SO great at running a tournament that we will be done on saturday with plenty of time to play around after.
The 'reception' will be courtside so there is no need to leave! We will already be pretty from the entire days 'wedding ceremony' and we'll be doing it all right there. The lights stay on until about 10pm right now so we can stay amped!

Plenty of polo for EVERYONE!

BYTHEBY wedding attire is heavily encouraged and you will be heavily shamed without it. We've been toying around with the idea of penalizing your team for not dressing up. NEON is the wedding color.


alright, who's looking to be my second team DOUBLE THE FUN!

Might be on one team already, but definitely down to play on another. Brrrrring it, dawgz.

more great things in the works for teams coming to play!

update on the double lady lovin:

there is only one team so far that needed to ask an already-registered lady to play, Maureen Grady has been scooped once and twice now, but the rest of the list is still good to go, so if that's keeping you back don't let it!

All teams will be getting an email on the 15th regarding payment and other info, so keep a look out and forward to your other two teammates please!

Can't wait to see everyone!!!

Driving all the way from NYC. Someone pick me!!! Mo' Polo' Less Problems!
and I'm good....DUH!

Emails were sent out to team contacts on Feb. 16.
Please check your inbox's for an email from atxsavethedate@gmail.com

Just for being themselves and being amazing: Kayla Story of CHI, and Britt Willey-Schultz of MKE/CHI

This award is akin to the Female MVP award in most tournaments, our winning lady was voted for by guests of the event. Told to keep in mind that the Maid of Honor is one lady that plays hard, has fun, helps when and where needed, keeps a smile on her face, is the life of the party, dressed the part, acted the part, and was the part all weekend. It is with the greatest of honors that we awarded our own MAUREEN "MO" GRADY of ATX this title.

This award, in likeness to Male MVP, was awarded to the male that most stood out to the guests for representing the greatest of all traits in image, attitude, game play, and everything in between! Dressed the part, acted the part, was the part, and some would probably argue "and then some" , we are happy to announce that JOE "ZOO" ZUGEITER of Cincinnati, Ohio was crowd voted this title. Dressing to the NINES Joe did not disappoint, from his neon cumberbun and matching bow tie, to his garden party attire, he was the Best Man.

3RD PLACE: BUKAKI BRIDES: Adylle HOU, Diego HOU, David Torres SATX
