No it's outdoors we just aren't sure which park yet so yes it's just an image for portland.

His map is really strange. I think that's just the location you get when you google Portland,

Cool. I will confirm in the next week or so if I can swing it (heading to The Ladies Army the next weekend, so might be tight).
Let's stay in touch!

I talked to Brian about the format, Saturday teams double elimination, Sunday mixed players from different city's double elimination. he said the point of this tourney is to come play lots of polo and have a good time. sounds good to me!

Yo Dawg I heard you like redundancies so we got a PIN number for your PIN

Ya glad to see you on this site killer.

Julian, Jesse hey I'll be your third I you guys don't have anyone yet I flying in on Thur morning the 17th coming in solofrom Sacramento . See ya all soon!

Deaddog- sacbikepolo

If you were on the fence about this one then doubt no longer. We are confirmed for four free kegs from Widmer brewing plus four others at vendor prices. Eight kegs again! This may drive up the cost of the tournament a little but you don't have to spend any money on beer for the weekend. One way or another we will figure out a food situation for it as well.

Way to go PDX, doin' it right! Can't wait for it, Gnarmageddeon is gonna bring the heat this time.

If you aren't sinning, Jesus died for nothing.

Hey B
What's the word on court location? Same as last year? Want to figure out where to stay.

No we are playing at Rose City which is at 62nd and Tillamook in NE.

Thanks!

Tickets purchased see you next month!

Anyone from Vancouver going to this that I might be able to snag a ride with?

I think I'll be driving and I can squeeze you in.

that would be awesome!!! Count me in, I'll give you a call and we can sort out the details. Who you playing with? I might need to find a team too!!

Current estimate is 4 teams from Bay Area.

anyone looking for a player? I'm coming down for this for sure, but I'm flying solo and I don't have a team yet...

I'm playing with Ace and Jasper from the Claremont, but Donnie and Matt from LA are possibly still looking for a third.

Also, what's the housing situation like? Matt and I will be leaving LA on Monday, probably won't arrive until Tuesday.

Hell ya! You will have fun with those guys girly!

oh shit. less than a week. BBQ'd Meadowlark ... mmmmm

Oosh! Oosh! Oosh!

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

Bring tents fools.

Also, I'm still kind of looking for a team. Justin, it has been mentioned to me on multiple occasions I should talk to you. Still need a team?

IDK if your asking me or another Justin, but I have a team from SF already.

Until you came along Dustin & Kim were going to play with a large cutout of me with sound effects and a robotic arm. Now those two have a live 3rd. Damn.

Justin from Calgary here....I am still looking for a team. Give me a call if you want. 403-371-1406

hello folks. I'm thinking of heading down from Vancity. Anyone need a ride? Anyone need a 3rd? What's the situation with accommodations?

Max! I need a team!!! I'm being super last minute about this whole thing. What do you think?

This weekend in PDX is looking good weather wise!

still need a team for this, anybody need a lefty 3rd?

kiersten, lets do it! Mr. jfrench... i'm happy to play with you as well... as long as you two OK to play with each other. I figure being from the same city you probably know each other and blah blah blah we'll play polo, drink beer and have a great time!

any word on accommodations?

Bring tents! my back yard can host three large tents, otherwise talk to Brian Pagel also look at the updated map at top!

Yo Dawg I heard you like redundancies so we got a PIN number for your PIN

It's still at Rose City Park right?

The map at the top points to "Roseland Theater" ...

any motels nearby? As much as I love urban camping, I also like beds... But save a small tent plot for me just incase!

Some SF peeps will be staying at the Comfort Inn 8225 Northeast Wasco Street.

thanks for that Joel. I booked myself a room there.

Yes tournament is at Rose City Park 62nd and NE Tillamook. We will be there for pickup and registration on Friday evening. Because we don't have permits I may not bring a keg to the court for Friday night but we will try to figure something out so nobody has to pay for beer. You may want to invest in a cheap water bottle for the weekend and mark it so you know which one is yours. If you do come out for Friday, please try to bring a water bottle or some other type of container to hold your beverage. Because we plan on covering your beer and lunches for the weekend this tournament may be up to $15 per person, sorry.

WHAT ABOUT BREAKFAST?!?!?!
(just kidding)

No problem on the food/beer we can be self sufficient on that front. Thanks Brian.

Any chance there will be a grill?

And good luck on the "bring a container" front. Bring a container should be the new don't be a dick of polo rules.

I will be selling some of the Seattle Bike Polo water bottles for $3 a piece on Sat.

This Friday night!

next time buy a ticket and i bet it will show up on time

Yesterday was fantastic!

The longest day of the year we played 'til 9p.
All games played to 5.
Everyone knew the rules. What ref?
Many of the finest players in the world gave it their best.
Every game was played with zest and sportsmanship.
The food and beer were plentiful and delicious. The music near the end was good.
Best. Prize. Event. Ever.
No really. Best prizes ever! The inverted give-away was awesome.
Kenichi scored a vagazzle goal. It even looked like a double vagazzle from my angle.
And we get to do it again today!

x2!!!!

Agreed on best prizes give away ever! Give the frames to the people who need them!!! Congratulation to everyone! Smooth fun tournament. And it was fantastic to meet so many people from Cali. Great job Portland!

Thank you SF for teaching me the term vagazzle.

It was a collaborative effort. I believe Kenichi and Seattle Drew were sitting around wondering what a vagazzle goal would look like. Answer: through the triangle.

A while later Kenichi vagazzles the ball right through two of SF's finest. Not one. Two people were covering the goal. Damn you Cascadians!

Thank you Portland for blowing my mind with polo awesome. I want to play with all of you all the time.

&& Thanks PoloHaus for being the (surprisingly) quiet place to crash this week. Love you guys!

polopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolo

Fucking amazing weekend, never played so much polo ever. give away was ridiculously cool and the throw in tourny was a blast too. thanks portland and polohaus

Thanks guys for throwing an awesome tournament. Worth the 10 hour drive for sure! And i will be on a new frame next time you see me!! :)

double post delete.


Martin is to the right of the frame taking position with the ball.

Rory showing me where my defense will not get going. This is good clean polo out here in the West.

that will be interference at ESPI from my understanding and experince at Bench Minor

Rory was just getting open for the pass.

____________
The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

with his mallet on his handle bars? was he receiving a wrist shot pass in the air

No he was playing good interference.

I really can't understand why anyone would presume to make this type of play illegal. It reminds me of the grass/horse polo line rule where someone with the ball is essentially protected from being messed with at all. The idea there is clean, open play but it wasn't natural. I understand a rule like that to keep horses from colliding. We ride bikes like they're shoes, not horses. When the SF grass game quit playing the stupid line rule the game became exponentially more fun.

Martin will get a clean shot because Rory did his job and opened up space for him. I can keep Rory from taking a pass because he would have to let up on me to do so. (But why should Martin pass rather than shoot?)

This is what makes hard court enjoyable. We're playing hard, against each other, and clean/safe.

i think the play is clean and well set up and i employ this tactic as well. im just telling you what the Bench Minor and ESPI 5 rule is since you gave a fine picture example of it..maybe we should move this convo to the thread about interference penalties

Fuck yeah Portland! Courts were solid, nice corners, easily readable scores, 8 kegs, grilled meat on a stick, GREAT POLO! Oh and the prize giveaway was amazing – I hope somebody got a picture of the DFL team(s) with their shiny new frames. Never have I seen such huge smiles.

Thanks Max and Tim from E. Van for good games on Saturday, still wish we had a chance to play pickup beforehand. Thanks Martin and Joe for good games on Sunday, that was fun! Thank you Brian for the hospitality. See you folks in NYC / Madison!

Thanks to everyone who was here this weekend. Such a great time. Brian you're amazing for putting this all together and dealing with the rules and time like you did. I'm glad we could pull it off without needing a time limit. Justin, Morgan, and TIm you guys are amazing for playing with me over the weekend.

Great playing with you Devin...no need to apologize I'm sure more people would say I was being the ass. Congrats on the win along with Crandell and the Hippie. Well deserved considering how terrible your team looked in the first game of the day. By the end you're were dominating.

Rory, I love you.
