Holy crap. What an experience. That was our first “major” tournament and we did our best to raise the bar on all accounts. Here is a link to the video of the finals

Maybe we’ll host a tournament again in 2016. Thanks for coming everyone!

Here is a link to the facebook event.
This tournament is going to happen September 15th/16th, weather permitting. We only have one court, and this is for Mankato and Minneapolis to play together prior to the Midwest Open on October 14th/15th, and the Midwest Club Championship on November 3rd/4th. This is mostly for fun, and we’ll be providing drinks and food.

I haven’t updated this in a while so here are a few things:
1. A reminder that Pickup happens every Thursday from 7pm to 10:30pm. Everyone is welcome, even if you don’t have the right equipment or anything.
2. League is in full-swing, on Sundays from 5pm to 7pm, with pickup before or after. This will continue for another two weeks and then we’ll have a friendly tournament near the end of July. Minneapolis will be invited (and better show up!)

Whoa now, we had 18 players and 6 amateurs for a total of 24 players, plus at least 20 other spectators at the peak. Pretty good for a night of pickup!

This semester Pat M undertook a project to create some one-piece capped mallet heads. These are machined from rods of UHMW. For a first run, he did pretty damn well. Excellent work. This was just a fun project, these are not for sale (except locally!)

We also tapped the ends of some new MKE shafts. It works like a charm. No more coupler nuts.

I’ve added links to some important resources. The rules and NAH site are listed, as well as the best bike polo community site on the internet. Right now I think its just me (Joe), Andy, and a mystery member. If you want to join, look for our club and request membership. Let me know if there are any other links I should add to this list.

Use the link over to the right to subscribe to our mailing list. This will serve a variety of uses but most importantly it’s a way for us to send out notifications of meeting times on days besides thursday, as well as off court happenings like organization meetings, alley cats, or whatever. This seemed like a good alternative to facebook since some people don’t check it often. And a good alternative to using our phones because people get forgotten or don’t check their phones in time.
