Hey, I'm back on the westside this week and hoped I could catch some games... haven't been out to Cal Anderson before, but I really want to play while I'm in town!
Anyone planning on pickup this week (Dec 26th - 31st), and if so, what time?
P.S. Is there a site/forum where I can find up-to-date times for games in the Seattle area?
We play tuesday and thursday at Cal anderson from 7ish until 11. We might play saturday but as it's a holiday we might be drunk.
Awesome! Thanks for the info, I'll see you all tomorrow night then.
where we are at... The Spring Break Hawaii tournament will be the week of the 7th-15th of February. Camp sites are available for reserve 30 days in advance. Starting planning, only 24 teams can play. Priority will need to be given to the teams that show ticket stubs first.
holy.... this is actually happening! will we be flying into honolulu?
I dont see why not, a lot of people have had misgivings about it but it seems like with the new tourney set up(all qualifiers on the same weekend) people could spring for a hawaii polo retreat-or week could make it the nw polo retreat
After a seriously shitty week it's gotten worse. While heading to the crown I lost my passport in the airport. Needless to say I'm here for the weekend. Thought I had a place to stay and he who shall remain nameless shafted me. Mess was kind enough to let me crash at the garage.
Anyone interested in helping a fellow polo-ite out?
Seeking a floor couch or the holy spare bed. Would love some polo and local fun. Up for anything to make the best of the weekend. For a good time call four one five 713 ten 32.
BRINGING THE RUCKUS
Thanks 206 for a chill weekend. Special props to brothers Mess, Aaron and Paul. Thanks to Jessie, Scooter, Stiven and I guess Forest for coming out and playing. Let me know if you need a place to crash in SF. Hope everyone had a great time in EVan. Cheers.
so sorry you missed all the fun.
If you are still here, we are playing polo tonight at Cal, and Messman is taking people mt biking today if you'd like to hit him up. Hope everything got worked out!
Sign me up for volounteering for the whole week in Seattle Arriving Tuesday, Wild Card wed and Thurs then i may be free for the rest or ...............maybe not.
"So this is how it ends"MACHINE
We'll put you to work for sure machine.
Anybody want to come through to help build/paint boards on Thursday 8/18?
The day before the Worlds? I will see if I can change and get a flight in the morning and if I can I would love to help out!
I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!
The annual dead baby bikes pilgrimage begins tomorrow! I'll be in town all weekend - looking for some polo this year! Saturday afternoon @ Cal Anderson? Or is everyone gonna be in Calgary?
Hope to see you all in Georgetown Friday night!
For those who don't know:
probably 3/4ths of the players are in calgary, but me and a few others are still here. I'm gonna send a text to whoever is still in town and we'll see if we can get everyone to meet at cal and ride to west seattle for the DB ride? saturday is typically judkins but I'd be down to play at cal by 4:00 saturday, as well as cal again on sunday by 5pm.
Hell yeah Max, I am in for DB, Sat/Sun Polo @ Cal. Kick it tough SEA!
Thanks for having this newbie out tonight. My favorite part was running into the light post because my breaks suck!
Hey Seattle, Im going to be in town july 4th through 12th, where and when do yall play? ive heard good things about your pickup
bob, send me your number on facebook, july 4th may be team night depending on the holiday celebrations, so expect some people at Cal Andersen (11th and Pine) and occasionally throughout the week games are at Judkins park (23rd S and S Judkins St). I'll make sure to hug you after I punch you.
So have yall put any thought into coming to the NA's and driving a truck up to Calgary and taking Justins trailer back with 2 or 3 sets of nets and 2 or 3 courts to seatltle for worlds? Then Justin can pick the trailer up at worlds? or a uhaul? Let me know ASAP
I will do it
Boom Woadie is even willing to help!
Dear Seattle Bike Polo,
Ya'll rocked my socks. Can't wait to come back.
Ride, bake, polo, repeat.
I want to get the word out that my girlfriend & I are moving from Chicago to Seattle at the end of August. I'm planning a trip out there in mid July to look for apartments & maybe interview. My budget is pretty tight so I was wondering if some folks might have a place for me to crash while I'm visiting. Of course, I'm bringing my polo bike with me to play some polo & ride around Seattle all day to look at neighborhoods & apartments.
I'll be seeing some of you in a few weeks at Bench Minor so I hope you don't mind me asking about everything in Seattle.
See you soon - Keith.
Chicago Hardcourt Bike Polo
nice Keith. there'll be a bunch of us at bench minor feel free to talk our ears off. see you soon!
I found a place to crash & I booked my flight out there. I'll be in town Mon 07/18 - to Sat 07/23. I plan to play some polo at Cal Anderson when I'm there. If anyone want's to go on some daytime or evening rides through the city I'd be up for a tour. I really want to learn a lot about Seattle on this trip.
Until then, we are pretty stoked on Bench Minor coming up real soon. It's going to be a great weekend.
Make sure I get your number at Bench Minor, I'll put you on the text list so you know when and where to find us. I think you'll find the polo and Seattle itself quite satisfying. I can't wait to meet you.
Sorry I didn't meet you in Chicago. I hat my hands full with the tourney. I'll be in Seattle the week of July 18th to look for apartments & play some polo. My # is 773.398.9943 if you want to include me in the text messages. Can't wait to play some West Coast polo!
I'll add you to the text list! Can't wait to meet you.

Bellingham is coming down in force on Sunday. I assume you will be playing judkins by 1-2

hey, just wanted to say BIG thanks to Leon for stopping in Missoula last week. Definitely opened up our eyes! still trying to convince people to make it over to Pullman for the tourny..if so see you guys there for the knife fights.
hey im moving to seattle in a couple of weeks with my little lady .we have an apt and Ive been looking for a job for a while and was just wandering if any of you could keep your ears open for me, that would be rad. also I thought I would be able to make it to the anywhere but worlds, but plans seemed to change. I don't have a phone yet, this and fb is all I have. I can't wait to play with yous.
Team smile, superfriends are still the two best polo teams ever! No one has played more games or tournaments. The first game of the first tourny I ever played in was superfriends Leon, Seabass,juian. We got all exited because we scored two goals, then you killed us. Playing that game changed forever polo for the city of Sacramento. We started out playing long court. After that game we never looked back. The west coast will be back on top soon. Other west coast citys are starting to come into their own. Hope to see you guys soon. Sorry you won't be at ballwackers ball this year .
hey there are a few of us coming up this weekend for some polo and the dead baby event. I was wondering if there could possibly be a place for us to crash? I don't think there will be a lot of us maybe just like 3 or 4 heads. let us know what's up.
did anyone lose anything this weekend i have a small pile of stuff.
AXLES OF EVIL
