    Bike Polo Ronin

    Nice work guys, I'm looking forward to this.

    i have been on the fence about this, but might be able to make it work. little rock- who is housing polo players from out of town? there's room somewhere for everyone, right?!
    yo austin, who is coming to this?

    Hey girl did you make up your mind about this one?
    I gotta ask that time off werkkkk

    you know miguelito is going to go! annie will be there and robert and i think pelon and casey- not too sure but ill talk to peeps at polo on thursday about this.

    Fuck off

    I'm so happy you guys are going to make it. We're looking forward to playing you guys again. On two courts we're going to be able to play a lot of polo!

    I need a third for this.

    we may bring some more people frazer. i will try to bring our best and hopefully get a lot of austin folks to go. i'll see who is going and i'll let you know.

    Fuck off

    cool mike, unlike jeffthedef, i'd rather not be on stacked out of town death squads for a regional friendly (ATXBFF turney bein the exception ;p). its fun playin with new people, if you or little rock got some interested greenhorns, send em my way. Liz from savannah is my second.

    robert may not make it after all so i may need a team :(

    Fuck off

    I won't be making this, as much as I want to go, I don't think it's a good idea right now...

    so miguel, maybe you should talk to people at polo for a team, I don't think most of them read this, unless you are talking about a mixed team... just sayin...

    wish I could come!

    miguel are ya'll still planning on going?

    yes we are still going! when do i ever miss these things? haha- i hope that you're still going! you girls get a team together and i'll see what i can do to get one together.

    Fuck off

    Ok so how are we getting there? And how much should I plan on for gas monies? And why don't you play with us ha ha? I'm pretty sure I lost our third cuz everyone was so wushu washy for a bit

    did you girls not pick up ann? if you didn't get her then hell yeah we can be a team!

    Fuck off

    is mo not going? i went ahead and grabbed up paul!
    p.s. we need a third!

    Mo can't go. Well if I fit in the car it looks like we will have four going so we'll have an extra to play with y'all.

    Is there space for me? I'm so confused. I guess we can chat at polo tomorrow. Who is Casey playing with?

    Ok so how are we getting there? And how much should I plan on for gas monies? And why don't you play with us ha ha? I'm pretty sure I lost our third cuz everyone was so wushu washy for a bit

    and me annie and kc will be driving.

    Fuck off

    did you ever get a team together frazer?

    Fuck off

    maybe...ryan want to make some COOKIEZ?!?! we can wear our sespi shirts!

    jumbo cookiez!

    twoooooooo threads!

    bike polo hotline

    Hey guys_
    We have (I'm guessing) come up pretyy short on the housing for yall. We are gonna keep searching for lodging, but in the meanwhile, to be up front, it's probably a good idea to assume there isn't going to be enough to cover everyone. Baker park, very close-has camping & we're gonna look into a group campsite. Sorry if it's lame, but there are only a handful of players here. in the meantime, we ARE trying.
    DaveO

    it is with sadness I have to inform you my jaxmates are dropping like flies. : ( !
    So as far as our numbers count one from jax, at least one from no and one from tampa if that helps with your numbers. But again I don't mind camping at all

    Let's all agree to use this proper tournament thread, please. Kev - would you close "Little Rock, double! April 10th & 11th"? Thanks.

    Retired.

    are the courts lit?

    Doesn't look like it on Google Street View.

    I know it doesn't look like it but I'm pretty sure they are.

    Anyone in the south east going to this need a ride? i BELIEVE there will be two cars coming from savannah and going through the following cities:
    jacksonville, tallahassee, pensacola, mobile, and new orleans
    possibly baton rouge but i think there is a big bike event going on there that weekend
    let me know yo! i can take 4 other people and have a 3 bike rack that can fit 4 bikes most and the other car is the same but probably can only hold 3 bikes

    dibz

    got jeff and AB in my car too!

    what about lizzy boo?

    two cars yo we drivin separate for maximum people

    two cars yo we drivin separate for maximum people

    When are you guys leaving / coming back? I need a ride.

    it's not set in stone yet but i believe we'll be in new orleans by thursday night and head to little rock early friday morning and I'll come back either sunday or monday depending on what the rest of yall want to do
    soo i believe that makes my car full and two more spots in lizzy's
    fraz any other mobile boys wanna claim those spots?

    edit: we will be in new orleans all day friday and then little rock saturday morning or late friday night

    hold my possible spot from when i was riding with cherri!

    somebody punch Dave in the dick for me. k?

    k you're in fraz and liz's car which leaves ONE more spot

    edit: ryan please call me, gas money is a requirement upon entry of liz's vehicle, no money no ride
    2nd edit: we will also be requiring sespi t-shirts and coozies for the cities of savannah, jax, mobile, and new orleans

    dont worry i have plenty of "sespi money" left over.

    seriously though, we're figuring out gas money before hand and will let you know how much you'll need to pay which you'll have to give to liz (for there and back) before you get in the car.

    That's cool, maybe you can use some of it to pay back the people from last year who gave you money for shirts? You know, be a stand up individual instead of a lying scumbag.

    I dunno, just a thought.

    There is a whole thread dedicated to this subject so use that one for that kind of talk and let's keep this about the Little Rock tournament.

    we're all going to the little rock tournament so it couldn't be anymore about the little rock tournament.

    in summation: fuck off.

    oh boy... let's turn this thread back in the direction of civility, please.

    That being said..we play almost always at night.

    who is all coming from south fl? are your sure you are going to make it?

    bike polo hotline

    Hola! I can house some folks. Prob a bunch - like 5-10. I live 3 miles from courts and route is bike friendly. Only catch: I have cats indoors, fyi for allergy sufferers. but yard camping is an option.

    can't wait to meet cha!

    our cars would be happy to take that space if its still open. i can also bring us a few air mattresses

    bike polo hotline

    ab,

    it's yours. there is one single bed, one (tiny) couch, two single big comfy chairs w/ottomans, and floor space for prob 3-4 air mattresses. i also have one full size air mattress.

    big living/dining room, one full bathroom, kitchen, and washer/dryer. also internet access. non-smoking home, outdoors on porch okay.

    see you in april!

    you still want to ride in my car?

    yeah, somebody's gotta take pictures, right?

    we can all sleep together can't we? haha..i'll bring my tent again!

    Fuck off

    Sup polo socialites! Nathan from Little Rock here...
    Anyone have any input on what time they would want to head home on Sunday? Just working on tourney scheduling. Also, any idea when people are trying to get here Friday night? Thanks guys and keep posting with your questions!

    If you need scheduling tips you should talk to what's his name.

    hopefully mikey, russell, and i are teaming up for this. can i call 3 sleep spots somewhere? i'm even down to sleep in a tent in someone's back yard.

    ---------------------------
    carve. smash. eat shit.

    i think Austin's tally is 4, possibly five right now...what's the haps for good sleeps? we have a tent too. is it cold as shit or what?

    Tulsa has at least 6 maybe more.

    It's unlikely to be freezing but I would expect the nights to dip down into the forties. As long as it's not raining a tent would be optional. I think it's best just to sleep under the star in a sleeping bag on a bit of padding. I can't speak for my whole club but I'm down for the camping out.

    As of today, I would say that we have about (hopefully) 70 spots for either camping or crashing inside..Schiller Street kids have enormous backyards/woods and are planning on getting shows for one of those nights. About 50 to 60 spots at that one location and maybe about 15-20 spots between lrbp members places. Bring tents..there will be some housing as well. Email LRBPolo686@att.net with your needs & we will try and get you set up!

    ann silver and i are teaming up for this and need a 3rd (unless ann secured someone already?) holler if you want to be in our ménage à trois.

    Chris, ryan hasn't responded to me, u wanna play with me n liz?

    Also people in lizzies car..i can't leave mobile til ~2 on Friday, would yall be cool shippin out of NOLA around 4? Also have to get back by monday night.

    one more weeeeek! yay

    Fuck off

    are we allowed to be on two teams?

    cause i wanna be on two.
    lemme know about this shit dogg!

    Pick a team! You'll get to play as much polo as you can handle, promise.

    I don't see why it would matter

    We've got a player we want to play on all three of our teams also we have three teams instead of two now and is everyone alright that none of these teams ever play each other because that would be weird. Heck, why don't we just all play on two or three teams? Get real! It's logistical problem for one and a fairness issue for another. By the way, Lora would like a spot on one of those teams if there's an opening.

    logistical solution: i'm on team a and team b, team a being my primary team. when team a plays team b (or if they play on different courts but at the same time), i play on team a and there is a sub that plays in my place on team b. no confusion, in fact it will be transparent as far as anyone that doesn't know us knows. we're going to figure it out before the match and then play. no one else has to figure out anything. i don't see anything not fair about playing on more than one team. if lora wants to be a sub for our secondary team, tell her to talk to us and we'll figure something out. i'm sure there will be a team needing a player that she can play on full time though.

    I respectfully disagree. Please make the hard choices it takes to have 3 people per team and one team per person. Creating teams in our club is very hard too. I relate to wanting to come up with a solution where everyone gets to play on a great team and everyone in your club is happy.

    between the 2 teams, i'm playing with 1 from new orleans, 1 from savannah, 1 from philadelphia, and 1 from austin so it's not a club thing (it's a friendlies thing, heh). i don't even know why i'm going over this with you. do you have any say in the matter? if the little rock guys are alright with it, which one person has already chimed in, then it's fine. it's not a democracy. the host city chooses the rules. when we come to tulsa, i'll make sure to only be on 1 team. :)

    edit: every tournament i've ever been to has had teams with players that played on more than one team. it's never been a problem.

    I haven't seen anyone from little rock chime in, yet. If they do say it's fine it will change things and expect to see a lot more B teams and all-star teams being formed. I doubt I'm the only one that thinks having a bunch of teams with different combinations of the same players lessens the tournament. To me, that is what the pickup court is for. There's a better solution then you playing on two teams. Setup another fun format tournament on the pickup court if you want. That way everyone can benefit from your desire to play more polo with more people and your ability to organize. This is nothing personal drizz, I look forward to meeting you and playing against your team.

    we'll see how it pans out... by the way, my primary team is ann and annie, so don't think i'm bailing on you ladies! team name possiblity... "annie, ann, n drizz". kinda rolls off the tongue, yes?

    ---------------------------
    carve. smash. eat shit.

    Pick one team. Each person should play on only one team. There is no reason why one person should get to play on multiple teams (and get to play more polo than the rest of us) especially when there are still people who do not have teams.

    why are you trying to call the shots in south central region? get back to your south eastern region. jokes! ;) the situation has worked itself out before this turns into a shit show, i posted this below:

    leave it to the south eastern girls to come into our region and start dictating... and not even the good kind.

    imho, this is an exception, not the norm… no big deal.

    I think it's awesome there are so many coed teams forming. That said, if Cris can't find a team and Jeff wants to do pandzig than Amanda and I will simply find another third. It's a silly thing to argue when there're people without teams and 2/3rds already with one. I get wanting to play with your crew.

    Hey guys, the manager at Vinos is reserving the top deck for us Saturday night at 8pm so we can chow and drink after playing. At first it was gonna be some money up front for the resv..but he nixed it for us=nice guy & the best beer & Pizza in town!!
    As for the teams thing..Im pretty sure we dont care, because none of us has ever even played in a tourny or against any other teams. So, If you guys can figger the brackets or whatever out=fine...

    this shit is going to be fun. like tommy at fall break fun.

    Just thought I'd drop a line since this weekend came up faster than I anticipated. I have housing I can offer up. I have 3 couches, floor space for 3-4 more and 4 person tent I can put up in the back yard, with a fire pit and all. So I guess I can fit 10 people pretty comfortably. It's right in the middle of the city, maybe 15 minute bike ride to the courts. If you are interested please e-mail me as I don't check this forum as often as I should. benthesing@gmail.com

    4 people will be coming from austin so if anyone has space, please let us know! thanks

    That housing sounds good. It looks like Tulsa will bring 7. Our extra is Lora, she's not on here but it'd really cool if she found a team to hook up with.

    Congrats Tulsa and Austin you are the winners! To everyone else good luck finding housing, camping, bridges to sleep under. If you would like I can look around a bit for ya though. Let me know.

    thanks dawg!

    Btw~ Kenny from Schiller Street has ample camping and there will be shows as well he says. His # is 501-412-9409. (said he had room for like 50 people..) The adress is 315 South Schiller Street. I put a map up earlier with some other places that wee may be or go for refreshments/food. 2 days left!Arrrgh!
    Also it looks like we may have the lighting covered...doing some court maintenance tommorrow..

    I made a magnetic score keeper flip thing we can use. It's pretty cool and I think it will help a little. This model is totally untested but we had one of these things a year ago and we really liked it.

    Apparently our third man has found another team. Anne and I are looking for a teammate! We'd love an all gal team but we just want to ROCK & ROLL, so who's in? Holla.

    I can't speak for her but I really think Lora from Tulsa would enjoy being on your team.

    ANNIE ANN DRIZZ is the only way to go..

    Like the rodents they are named after, The White Mice are an elusive target. Here are the known facts; the band is from Providence, R.I. They released the wonderfully twisted Ganjahovadose via 20 Buck Spin last year. They’ve recorded a slew of splits and EPs with titles like Mouse of Mendes and Do They Know It’s Christmice? Their symbol is a rodent’s face scrawled on a pentagram. The music? Bass, distortion pedal and drums with liberal electronic effects and samples where applicable. They’ve been categorized as industrial, noise, art rock and noisegrind. Perhaps a better description would be unclassifiable.

    Also, Polk Street House is gonna be rockin all wknd, too. In fact, since the gang is moving, this is gonna be the most EPIC PSH and is highly recommended.

    whhhhhhhaaaaatttt!?!?!!

    Also, if anyone is interested in carrying on the polk house tradition let us know. Perhaps we could put in a good word for you with our land lord. Actually, never mind that...the house will probably be a pile of rubble by the time we're through with it.

    BALLLLZ THIS IS GONNA BE SUPER TIGHT."

    or if u wanna just sit in the house and watch CNN and movies that's cool too. (there are nites i do that, admittedly)

    Julieh-Thanks for gettin that up! Also, Schiller is taking people for lodging-He's got TONS of backyard space..

    It doesn't look like anyone from St Louis is gonna make it down this weekend. I have mailed a box with the last 7 heads from the previous St Cago batch. They are all 7" single cappers.

    2 are for Frazer from Mobile and Amanda from Florida, who paid a long time ago, but we just haven't been able to meet up yet.

    1 is for DaveO from Little Rock for free, for taking in the box of heads, handling money, and letting some kid from Tulsa ram a 30 team tournament down his city's throat.

    The remaining 4 are for sale. 13 USD per. First come first served. The box should arrive at Dave's house Friday or Saturday.

    Thanks everyone, have a super awesome two court weekend!

    Retired.

    dibbs!

    Got them a second ago..thanks Lucky!
    Im ridin a yellow bike...don't swarm me OK? :P

    We'll go easy on ya ;)

    I sent Lucky $13 via paypal… hopefully that means one of those has my name on it!

    What do you think "first come, first served" means, young man?

    P.S. Please don't bum rush DaveO.

    Retired.

    touché…

    Lol. These heads are Frickin sweet.

    dammit lucky! i've been writing and bugging you about these things for weeks! i need atleast 3! pretty please.....................

    Fuck off

    You wrote me one email 7days ago, which I have tried to reply to twice. Both times the reply has been bounced back to me.

    If you and Pdillo up there want these heads that badly, pay for them. Send 39 USD for three heads and 13 USD for one to me via paypal at lucky at slathaus dot com. This way, you guarantee your purchases and DaveO doesn't have to handle any money.

    Or, you can just track him down as soon as you get to town and harass the poor man until he sells you the heads.

    Retired.

    Yeah mike-Send him the money. I really don't wann have to touch any if I don't have to..
    Haven't got them in the mail yet...probably today I guess.

    *edit * fuck that writing up there I did Miguel..I would take it in pennies from you man!

    I sent you the correct email address if you read the complete email. There is no need for anyone to get attitude. I'll be in town this afternoon! Just save me two atleast please........

    Damn the internet. No attitude intended, just a bad translation of intent by an unfeeling machine.

    It looks like Dave got 'em today. I hearby declare that the three available heads can be yours and no one else's. So: the 7 heads in the box distribute like this; Amanda, Frazer, DaveO, and Pdillo each get one. Mike gets the three remaining.

    Sorry about any confusion or hurt feelings. This isn't how I usually handle business. But I happened to find this handfull of heads in the bottom of a box of polo stuff in the basement. Thought it would be easier to send a box to a couple of events than to put up a new post for just a few heads. Regular St Cago fair dealings will re-commence in a few weeks with a new batch.

    Retired.

    Thanks for the new head, dawg!

    That was close to the final sorting. Mike took 2 and Ann(Savannah) got the last one which I hope goes a little ways towards compensating for the damage her bike took. Will there be dbl closed heads in the next batch?

    Yup. In like, 4 lengths, 2 o.d.'s and 3 weights.

    Retired.

    I sent you 13 bucks, Lucky

    Does anyone else crave the simpler days when your word was your bond and people actually did what they said? I've heard there were days like that but actually I kind of doubt it. Every since I've been alive people have been squirrelly.

    Right. Because lying wasn't invented until right after the telephone.

    Retired.

    Hey, on an off note..both courts have street hockey goals with nets...hope thats ok...spose we could find some cones if it was an issue. They're nice nets.
    The head thing will pan out..

    Nets are cool!

    We are rollin out around 5, so we should be getting into town 9-9:30 ish. Cant wait!

    Hey, the other day when we were cleaning up the courts/removing rubbish/ect..a LR city guy came out and was psyched that we were using and maintaining the courts & wants to help us with new boards & stuff soon! Awesome as can be.

I'm sad we didn't get a third from litte rock, but thanks tulsa for giving us lora as a sweet goalie. thanks to tobi (sp?) for excelling with the brackets even though it was her first time. courts were awesome, people were awesome, games were awesome. thanks to dave and nathan and everyone else for being such great hosts and heading this up and to julie for putting up the caravan crew.

    congrats austin! suck it pandzig j/k ilu

    hope to see you little rock'ers at some tournaments this year!

    Cherri...thanks so much for dipping us in! Hope you like Denver..I know you will. Just looking at you makes my tickle muscle smile-you rule. Give Jeff a hug.

    I will have pictures up by tonight most likely! And if I don't, they will be up tomorrow.

    Thank you Little Rock for hosting your first awesome tournament and doing it well! Thanks to Ben most of all for putting us in his rad house to stay and showing us lots of love! Ben is such a nice dude and I hope his schooling goes well for him! Thank you Dave and Tobe and Nathan and everyone else for being so super nice and very welcoming to all of us and putting up with us all. I apologize for all of the fighting and disagreements that were had on some parts.We are going to try and make another tourney in Austin this year hopefully and I hope that when we do that you all can make it down here to Austin. I believe we all had a very great time and some great food aswell. It was also great seeing all of our other friends from other states and doing some reuniting and hanging out with them. I'm sure I can go on, but I'm getting some rest from the awesome and long weekend so I'll try and get the pics up asap!

    Last but not least, THANK YOU FOR THE AWESOME TROPHY THAT YOU MADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fuck off

    Wow, what a community! Bike Polo might have just exploded in Liittle Rock!

    That was a lot of fun! Little Rock did so much to support everyone in having a great time. Tobi you did an amazing job with the bracket and on the fly changes to make it what everyone really wanted. DaveO that trophy was actually even nicer looking in real life. The party that was Saturday night was just something to behold! I've never seen that many people in one house/yard in my life. Also your court was really great to play on.

    A few things that I was wrong about were: people playing on more then one team was no big deal at all, it would have been cool if it happened more; everyone against everyone and taking part of the next day to get it done was overkill and I'm glad that didn't happen.

    One thing I think might be nice in future tournaments would be: two single day tournaments without carryover and not necessarily the same teams the next day. Since we've all made good friends across cities, it might be fun to form new teams the next day.

    Hey team Orbea, that was interesting! I hope you guys stay with it and some intercity competition starts sprouting up.

    Thank you Ben for letting me sleep in your yard and check out your garden, good luck in school.

    NOPOLO, to my liking is the perfect blend of dirty & love. Cherri and Amanda I hope you find the perfect third to complement your A game in New York. Lizzy and Frazier thanks for letting me sub on your team, it made my weekend. Austin, what can anybody say but great show all the way around.

    Jasmine, I really want to see that picture again. Please send it.

    sooo i am bad at the internet but i put the pic on my fb and soon will go on flikr (if i actually have an account haha)

    This was a tun of fun, x2 on what everyone said above, and thx for sending that head down lucky (i'd forgotten about it, glad u didn't!). Julie den mother of PUSSY PALACE was so gracious. I'm looking forward to my move back to NOLA...you'll be seein much more of me south centralites (as I burn ur asses). Props to my dawg stevenso for jumpin in there with us, we know we beat those pandzigs!

    Hey,next time around what is the feeling on the nets? I like em..but I know there was some controversy over propping on them. I guess we'll just make rules to cover that next time..
    I want to make a Stanley Cup sized tropy for next year out of aluminum that will hold a 12 pack (just got a TIG welder..)
    Austin for Halloween?!??

    i say no balancing on the nets!!! if you lean on them tap out

    i think the net topic has been covered in a thread, but i'm not sure what the consensus is.

    JUST NO LEANING ON THE NETS OR YOU HAVE TO TAP OUT. AND THAT'S THE REASON FOR GOAL JUDGES :)

    Fuck off

    then leaning/putting your foot on the boards should be banned too. it gets complicated...

    ---------------------------
    carve. smash. eat shit.

    leaning and holding onto are different, I would agree though, that putting your arm out to hold onto the board is the same as leaning on the nets, but the advantage is not the same in both situations. now leaning onto the boards with your shoulder per se, isn't the same, but putting your foot onto something to prop yourself up would be. I'm not for propping yourself up with your hands or feet, but leaning or pushing off of the boards with your hands or feet doesn't seem like an offense.... just my two cents...

    Austin for Halloween tourney, who would come?, unless of course someone else puts on something even better at that time, then we could change our dates...

    Next time for sure.
    Hey Miiguel, you put your photos up anywhere yet?
