League of Bike Polo was launched five years ago today. What!? Figured that out after i got nostalgic for CMWC 2008 last week.
During that time there have been 700 tournaments posted, 1000 polo bikes, 500 clubs in 51 countries (!), 34 polls, 3000+ forum threads, 100000+ comments, 5000 users, and 8 awesome sponsors.
Last year we launched a mobile version, moved to a slightly faster server, and some minor design tweaks. Lots of plans in store for year 6 ... i'm looking for a poloworkation/sabbatical this fall post-WHBPC to get some of that done.
I'm looking for some feedback on the stats I'll include in Podium's Bench Format. For each Stat, I need a Name, a short descriptive Label, and an Abbreviation. I'd be interested in feedback about any of this, and if you have any good reasons to add or drop any statistics.
Okay, so I've been working a bit this weekend on updating the rule set to create a document that I envisioned for the 2013 season. This is not official at all, but I want to at least end up with a rule set that I am proud of and confident in, and leave it for people to build off of for the years to come.
9AM – 9PM wildcard tournament ( final games expected between 4PM and 8PM )
7.30AM – On site registration and bike check (ref will not allow a team on the court if not registered, paid and bikes checked)
8AM – 2PM first group swiss rounds
2PM – 8PM second group swiss rounds
