This event is a benefit for the Ronald McDonald House, a home-away-from-home for the patients and families of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

FRIDAY: Registration / Court Assembly / Pick-Up / Goner Fest
SATURDAY: Swiss (morning) Double Elimination (afternoon-evening)

The courts will be at Tiger Lane in front of the Liberty Bowl. There is a wiffleball tournament going on at the same time called Whiflestock, which is a big deal here, oddly enough.

Also, Goner Fest is going on. It's a rad music festival put on by Goner Records every year and people com from all over the world for this. The shows are insane and the people get rowdy. More info here: http://www.goner-records.com/gonerfest/

Housing may be limited, so if you need a place to crash, send an email to info@memphisbikepolo.com.

camping info added, fyi.

Someone pick me up, please! I'm going to quote Sheryl Crow and say "all I wanna do is have some fun, I've got a feelin' I'm not the only one"

SHOW UP ANYWAY and I guarantee youll get picked up

Get rad

Hi Kelli, maybe you remember me from OOOOshtober, but I need another player.

registration is open now. one team dropped off. first 2 teams to pay me $30 gets a spot. if you're a single, sign up a new team and pay me and you're in. check you're email if you're team has already signed up, but not paid.

Kelli and I are gonna bring some Denver Bike Polo shirts to Memphis, since it is a long way of travel we wanted to try and get an estimate of how many shirts we should bring and if anyone needs a special size we can try to accommodate. They will only be $10.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

what happened to them being $5? ;-)


$5 covers our cost, but we try to help offset the cost of travel by selling shirts, that way we can travel 20 hours for a tourney. Otherwise we would never see the east coast.

I'm in for a medium

talk shit and burn bridges

Man, I miss Memphis... Goner Fest AND bike polo on the same weekend, wow!
Please send Zak and Eric my love, London Joe x

two teams dissolved, so there's room for one more team, fyi.

hey y'all, dan from austin here. anyone looking for a team?

Here's the info on housing/camping. If you already asked me about housing/camping, then I got you covered. I will post a Google Doc will all the info next week.

HOUSING: Unfortunately, we are only able to house about 30 people. There are a few spots left so if you want a spot, claim it now.

CAMPING: Camping is weird now. Camping is only allowed after 8pm on Saturday and there is a strict "no stake" policy because of irrigation or something, which is lame, but there's no way around it. Stakeless tents are allowed near the fountain on the EAST side of Tiger Lane. If you have an RV or want to camp in your car/truck, there are electrical and water hookups.

With that said, we are also offering backyard camping. COMO has already claimed my backyard, but we have a few more backyards available. You are responsible for your own transportation, though. Email me if you need a backyard to camp out in.

HOSTEL: There is a hostel walking distance from the courts called Pilgrim House and it's pretty nice and I think it's $15/night. You probably need to make reservations. Here's the website: http://www.pilgrimhouse.org

Let me know if you have any questions.

By the way, there's still one more spot open for a team, so if you know anybody who wants in, tell them to sign up at hardcourtbikepolo.org!

for fuck's sake why am I awake... is it too early to pre-game?

talk shit and burn bridges

Everyone needs to be at the courts at 9am on Saturday morning. We want to start at 10am PROMPTLY!
