The 2012 Saint Louis Bike Polo Lock-In
This winter St. Louis Bike Polo will once again be hosting the greatest 24 hour bike polo party in the known universe. You are invited to join us at the St. Louis Skatium indoor rollerstaking rink for 24 hours of partying and polo, from twelve noon Saturday, January 14th until noon Sunday the 15th.
We've thrown this party twice before with memorable results. The people that seem to enjoy it the most are the ones that have no problem staying awake all night and can go with the flow. The Skatium only has one court, and with almost 80+ polo players, party goers should not expect to be on the court every other game. The wait time between games will be long since we do not allow mallet stacking or any other form of line jumping. In other words if you are trying play 40 games in 24 hours, you are going to be disappointed.
But if you are trying to party (and play some polo) you'll have a blast. We will provide some beer and food, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to bring a cooler full of whatever you want, especially if you have special dietary needs. We'll also provide a big ass pinata, some little motorbikes, shit tons of Mountain Dew and an hour of rollerskating. Thrash metal donut shop runs, spiritual awakenings, merit badges and broken bones are a possibility. For the most part we'll be playing it by ear.
So what do you say? Are you up for it? If so, do this:
On November 19th, starting at noon (cst), reserve your spot for the 2012 STL Bike Polo Lock-In by sending us $30.00 through PayPal. Our PayPal email address is: STLBikePoloLockIn@gmail.com
When you do this, include the following:
1. Your Name and the name of anyone else for which you may be submitting funds.
2. The appropriate funds ($30.00 per person).
3. Your polo club.
4. Your contact info (phone number and email).
Failure to submit all four of those things through PayPal will result in us getting a headache and you getting denied access to The Skatium.
There are 45 spots available. Spots are reserved in a first-come-first-serve melee. Spots are not reserved until money has been sent to our PayPal account. Once the spots are gone, they are gone.
You will get a confirmation email as fast as we can sort through the chaos. If you submit money but miss out on the limited number of spots, we will refund your money and add you to the waiting list.
