this should be fun. ive always wanted to play on these courts!



love the fact of the stadium and skyscrapers in the background plus ontop of a parking garage?

will these courts get boards down the middle and corners and will that fence area be fixed so no one goes overboard?

Ywp, We've made boards, and the fences are fixed now. They also put the tennis nets back up so they do a good job being barriers. This should be really friggin awesome too we've got like 20 sponsors so far and more coming. I should have the poster done by the end of the day, and that'll go up too! Hope all you kids in the southeast and around the southeast come down.

I am trying to round up 2 more folks from New Orleans/Baton Rouge to make a team so we can compete in the tournament, so I need housing for possibly 4 people. Can anyone help?

new orleans has two people who for sure wanna play in this, i dont know about making a team with baton rouge, but there probably most definitely will be a team from new orleans going.......

to bad since you didnt play in the sespi you are on suspension for the rest of the year and wont be able to play in this tournament. come on dude!

Bring all the people from New Orleans and Baton Rouge, we'll find places for you guys to sleep.

what you guys need boards?

two asshole's don't make it right"
BUTT three asshole's make a good team"

who doesnt need a bit of throbbie boards?

you're going overboards

hey most def working on a team from birmingham coming over only thing is that city stages, one of the big music fest is happening then, who cares? its polo and beer... haha

More sponsors added to poster, and updated schedule. If you're coming this is going to be awesome. Rules should be posted to the website soon.

hows the courts situation looking?

We've got the courts we normally use reserved. I talked to the people and they said they had no problem with us doing a tourney up there as long as we had fewer than 400 people on the courts at a time. If 400 people show up we'll make some stand on the street.

Small Update. Registration fee is set at $15 this covers everything having to do with our event, the Friday party, the Saturday Bike polo Tourney, and the Sunday Alleycat/more bike polo. The fee also includes lunch Saturday(2 pieces pizza and a coke) and some grilled food Sunday. For Sunday we're asking people to bring some chips and drinks and We'll cover meat, buns, and condiments and we'll pick up some veggie stuff for you vegetarians/vegans. No worries there. Can't wait for this.

Sounds rad we will have a patched together Pcola team hopefully.
2 courts?
vegan pizza on saturday?
whats the food like in the area?

The pizza place we're getting it from probably isn't/doesn't do vegan, but There's another place that does have a vegan option you can check it out http://www.allmenus.com/ga/atlanta/244537-village-pizza-company/menu/ And see if that sounds cool. I assume you'll be in the minority so it'll probably be whatever you want within reason. As for food around the courts it's mostly commercial. Biking distance from the courts there's a Moe's, Arbys, a Thai place, A ribs place, a Firehouse subs, a Chinese place, etc. There's a Publix in close range too. If you're looking for good vegan food in the city, I'm not so sure. Hope that helps. You can try Googling for Vegan food in the area and see what looks good.

looks like our third just backed out, anyone looking for a team?

we're coming from jax and can pick someone up on the way if need be.

Cherri--

I think you may be the person AB from P-Cola was talking with me about. Baton Rouge is hopefully bringing four. As long as all four can go, we will have one extra. That would make it you two, and our dude. If you aren't the person I am thinking of, then we will still hopefully have one more. See you in ATL!!!

p.s. I'm the guy that posted on 904 fixed about polo during the 4th of July weekend.

haha I am that person, josh spent several months in the duval

thanks so much! I really hope you all can make it, we'll see you in atlanta!

Cherri

Hello!

I just got word that we are all confirmed. We will have one extra person, so you, AB, and our dude Jared (we call him Deezer) can be a team. If you want.

AB is riding up with us, so give me a call or shoot me a text so we have your contact info and can get the three of you togther to practice! three86-fiveeightnine-678zero

See you in Atlanta, and in JAX for the 4th of July!

oh wait a second, but I already have another person, thomas, is playing on my team. Its just that this other kid, joe, is backing out.

Thomas and I for sure would be together, but we only need a third player?

just play with AB and it will keep it sorta duval. but he is our reserve so if something happens to our third (who has stitches below his knee) before saturday he is on our team. We have release forms we will have to sign to send him your way.

cant wait to see ya cherri!

No worries. We'll figure it out once we get there. Safe travels!

CORRECTION: Andy Tuba forgot to bring the camera on Saturday...A.B. didn't give you the camera on Sunday. Not my fault there.... :-)

Had a blast in ATL, can't wait to get to more tournys!!! Despite going 0-5 (against COMO, FTL, Pensanola, Carve Smash, and Shanty Chasers...) we feel like we did pretty well for only having played since March.

Hopefully we can get a group together to go to worlds and see what they hav to offer up there!

See you in October at Bike Polo Fall Break Pensacola!
