Hiya, do you know of any sydneysiders planning on going to the worlds?
None that I know of but I'll ask at polo tonight.
I think a few of us are more keen to go when it's back in North America for cost reasons.
Cheers Virginia, keep me posted. I'm 99% sure I'm going and want to get a solid team asap.
Hiya Virginia, any more news re worlds? I'm STILL trying to coordinate all my times/money issues.
Told Rob re your joining team and he's cool with that.
Hope all is well.
PS. Did Damon pass on the Velocity sponsorship offer of cheap gear? lemme know if yr interested and I'll send the list of prices.
At this stage everything is looking very good so I guess you can count me in.
I could probably do with a new wheelset so if you could send me the Velocity prices that would be awesome
Now to sort out our uniforms!
Here's the wheel list. (call to order)
The Guy to speak to is Adam.
I'm shooting for horizontal stripes (maybe dark green and black or green and white?)
With player names screen printed (I can do this) and team name perhaps....
Rob is 100% in now as am I (my bike is the only issue now)
Rob thinks maybe "3 horsemen of the polocolypse" A bit wordy
Polocolypse is pretty sweet though, thoughts?
I like the idea of dark green and black stripes on the shirts.
"3 horsemen of the polocolypse" is a bit long..Maybe "Polocolypse Now"?
I was also thinking I should come down to Melbourne sometime before Worlds so we can actually play together first but we can sort that out later.
Great minds think alike! Polocolypse now is a winner. I'll keep my eyes open for green and black striped T-shirts. I reckon some practice time would be ace. What date are you flying out? You can e-mail the account that Damon gave you. It's gonna be rad (I never let that word die!) T ps. we've got to pay our 60 euro team rego soon.
Hi Virginia ,
just booked my ticket to Sydney , Staying with my Brother in Manley.

"So this is how it ends"MACHINE
Polo will be great - I will make sure of it!

Thanks so much for the invitation. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it. Already taking too much time off for tournaments in Geneva and London in August.
Sydney is looking to put on a tournament in February next year and we would love to get as many Asian/South East Asian countries involved as possible. I will sent you more details soon.
Hi Virginia, Everyone is loving GoalHole this side of the pond. Is there a chance that you have time to update it one more time in the next 2 weeks.Will be seeing you in Geneva and London where yer goin down.
That's great to hear. The dictionary update will be up tomorrow!
I will be in Geneva from 12 August (my team qualified!) then heading to Barcelona for a few non-polo days on 19 August before arriving in London on 22nd. Heading back to Sydney on 27th.

Stoked Aus will bring it to the Ladies Army in Cascadia!
Like the Care Bears said, "sharing (bicycles, F/OSS, alcohol and Josh's Mom...) is caring"
Can't wait! Looking forward to finally spending some time in Portland too
Virginia, what's your vacation looking like after Ladies Army? The Master's tournament here in Indianapolis on June 1st......
Unfortunately I won't be there that long.. just two weeks total. Spending a week in Portland before Ladies Army and then heading home on the Wednesday after the tournament. Wish I could take more time off work.
