Recently Ezra from Fast Boy Cycles was diagnosed with colon cancer. Well, we don't know him, but we figured this would be a nice thing to do...

All proceeds of this tournament will go to TEACH CANCER TO CRY. Come play some polo, beat up on your friends, and kick the shit out of some colon cancer.

Who all is going to this? I may have to find a team to play in this tournament. I'm still not positive who is coming from Philly.

I'm headin down. was on the fence last week but I can't resist. (may be looking for teammates too).

I really want to go! I still can't get enough polo. If by some miracle I make it down I want to reserve a spot on Mark's team

3...2...1...GO!
Mallets Of Mayhem

NICE.

Mark, I think that Chris gave you my wrong cell number.

I think you should round up DUMPTRUCK and ALEXIS.

Chicago/Philly/Ottawa team would be strong.

Also, I'm gonna message Andy now and tell him I found a good player that he should come to DC to play with.

Let me know the numbers. Anybody comfortable with camping?

Oh also, we will be accepting donations, so if people don't have a team or whatever, or just want to give more, they can.

Mark, Montana AND Al's brother aren't gonna come down? That sucks.

Also, SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY said they should be here again.

Yeah, getting here on Saturday is fine as long as you call me or email me and let me know your team name and who is on it.

Also, don't show up before 11am on Saturday with expectations to play pick up on the big court. Their is a women's hockey clinic until about 11. We will play pick up until noon, but round robin play starts at noon.

is dc full of a buch of 14 year olds? im going to name m y next team poopy butt

I know, the dick and ass fixation is unreal. I think SLAPDICK STARTED IT.

EDIT -- Supposed to be in reply to Ben. I think something is wrong with these internets.

ya i think the comment order gets out of whack on certain threads. i finally figured out that it's only happening on tournament listing pages.

So I'm not retarded.

go find doug's listing of previous team names. its not just dc.

yo jav it's john, armando's friend. if you guys need a spot you'll be crashing with us.

One more note:
There is a hockey clinic on Saturday until 11, so please don't start showing up until 10:30 (10:30 if you want to be EARLY)

We will start pickup games at 11am. Tournament play will begin at noon. Show up BEFORE NOON. We have a lot of teams coming out and if everybody has to play everybody, that is going to take a while. edit for clarity: ok, you won't play EVERYBODY, but you're gonna play a lot of fucking polo!

Games will last until one team reaches 5 points or until 10 minutes is over.

Yeah, Shane Mehgan and Jason are TMDIYA. They were the leather taints at NSPI.

Shane made a drunken post about calling their team tmdiya, and the next day his wife (mehgan) asked if they had a team name. He was like YUP, THROW MY DICK IN YOUR ASS and she was just like EZZSCUSE ME??!! And now it makes me laugh a lot everytime I have to type it.

Dumptruck named his team the Vagina Tigers. See, it happens with the genitals of BOTH GENDERS!

Me, Mark Capriotti, and NYC Chris won! Thanks DC!!! Team Faggot Bike Golfers 4EVR!

Quinn won the audience favorite "Best Girl" prize.
RAMMAN cleaned up by winning a prize for Best Rookie and Most Spectacular Crashing.

Does not apply at Los Marcos Melee

Actually, Johan (DC) won best rookie, but RAMMAN had a huge win for the Ted Matherly Most Spectacular Crash award. Over the goal cone, over the boards, into the fence, under the fence, and onto the sidewalk. Textbook.

Thanks to Ryan, Jen, Zach/k, and all the DC people that helped put on this amazing tournament.

Playing Richmond was the highlight of the tournament, and I want to thank those guys for a great match. Please don't steal my bike again.

OH...and thanks to Chris and Ken for agreeing to be on my team. That was awesome.

we'll be your ringers anytime, just promise to work on your shooting between now and then . . .

(this reply was supposed to go after a comment by mark, but oh well)

First, I would like to address ken. You guys got lucky.

Second, I would like to thank Ryan and all the DC kids for putting this together and actually pulling it off. I am so sick of dirty jokes and hearing about everyone's penis and vagina and Oprah... I can't explain how much fun we had this weekend. I especially want to thank Eric for housing 4 of us from Richmond, buying the drinkers beer and the smokers cigarettes and letting us use his shower and breakfast foods. Eric I left my phone charger in the wall of the sun room so you either have to come visit in Richmond or meet me at Los Marcos.

Now for the players. I'd like to thank Mark C. (Philly) for being such a stand up guy and good at what he does. Chris and Ken, I love you both; it was a pleasure to actually get to play you guys. I want to thank Castro for letting me shove gauze into his knee. I'm no Johnny Midwest but I've been treated by him enough to at least feign like I know something. Big ups to Ali. You are a wonder of self-righteous indignation and even if you are good at riding your bike, you may never be good at polo. Thank you Dumptruck for pouring water on me when I made the sweater joke. I was largely in part able to deflect your assault onto Cecily and several other people / refresh myself at the same time. Thank you to Chombo for letting me play with his team one game. Thank you Quinn and Cecily for keeping me entertained on the benches and bleachers. Thank you Zach (DC) for getting upset when he heard that I had eaten 4 donuts just before we played his team in the round robin. Thank you Ryan for letting me throw you on the ground and not knowing how it happened. Thank you Sean McC. (RVA) for throwing your mallet at me after our game against each other and splitting my toe through my shoe. It still hurts.

Thank you Ben Z. RVA, my teammate for only allowing 13 goals all weekend. (3 on Saturday after 5 games, 10 on Sunday including bracketed and finals game) You were stellar.

Thank you Nick V. RVA, my other teammate for stopping Tink's mallet with your nose and then laughing when the inside jokes started flying from Richmonders. No one rides harder and faster and I'm glad they got a taste.

Don't bring cake to a donut fight.

Don't bring cake to a donut fight.

We have 9 shirts left.
6 small, 1 medium and 2 large, one of the larges are purple, the rest are yellow. Brian from DC(whose truck got stolen and never ended up playing after paying for registration) gets first dibs on size/color.

Thanks to all of you for coming out. Thanks to Alex and Corine (i hope I spelled that right) for the food! Thanks to everybody who let somebody sleep at their house. Thanks to Ted Matherly for trying to defend his title. Thanks to Jen for the Bake Sale. Thanks to Ama for helping us give change. Thanks to Dumptruck for flying in from Chicago. And of course, thanks to all of the sponsors:
Jon Wye, Laek House, Sage Brown, Swobo, Seagull Bags, Girl.Bike.Dog, Silver Cycles/Fuji/SE, Earth Wind and Rider.

At this moment, after our costs of prizes, food, drinks, and shirts, we have raised $231. All of the shirts are paid off, so all $15 from each shirt bought goes straight into that (8 shirts for sale). Also, I can't remember how many shirts we bought, so I might have set aside too much money, so more might go into Ezra's fund as well.

Results:
Faggot Bike Golfers (PHL/NYC) - Seagull Bags
On Deck (RVA) - EWnR Jerseys
Slapdick (DC) - Sage Brown Caps, Swobo Bar Ends
Sgt. Chombo's Lonely Hearts Club Band (NYC/DC/PHL/RVA/CHI/BOS) - Laek House T's

Male MVP:
Philly Mark - Girl.Bike.Dog Bag, Swobo Jersey, Swobo T
2nd - Nick (RVA)
[actually, Mark ended up giving Nick the bag]

Female:
Quinn - Girl.Bike.Dog Bag, Swobo Jersey, Swobo Shorts
2nd - Mehgan

Best Rookie:
Johan (DC) - Girl.Bike.Dog bag, Swobot T
2nd - Brendan (Philly)
[Johan gave Brendan the shirt that was in the bag]

Furthest Traveled:
DUMPTRUCK - Swobo T

Best Goal While Crashing:
RAMMAN - Swobo T
(ok, so I had 2 XL shirts and had to make up prizes for them, whatever)

The Ted Matherly Award [aka I took myself out of the game and came really close to injuring myself a lot]
RAMMAN - SE Draft Lite (with a flat tire because the rim strip moved and cut net to the valve stem)
Most likely to have a sequel to "Adam" made about them:
ok, so we aren't going to go here...

Everybody showed REALLY good sportsmanship this weekend, as you can see by prizes being shared by the competitors. I didn't even ask them to do that. (Nor did I think to split up the shirt and bag on the super close decision for best rookie. We seriously were asking people from every city and all of the answers were that they both deserve it. We actually had to flip a coin, so I really have to thank Johan for giving Brendan the shirt out of his bag)

Thanks again for coming down. See you all in Florida! SPRING BREAK '99!!!!!

Super special thanks to Ian for giving me my first black eye in years. Its not a good one, but there is some bruising on my top eyelid. Oh, and for teaching me who you made me do a wheelie without me doing any of the work. You guys are a lot of fun to play, we really need to travel between Richmond and DC to play more.

thank you dc polo for the whole weekend. you all rock, even that grillmaster who morphed into caesar at some point. now just turn down the heat at the rush rink

and i give respect to everyone we played, especially to on deck for almost making my lungs collapse during that final match. you guys got unlucky. ian: less time ejecting me from my bike and more time scoring.

We forgot one award Ryan, and that should go to Eric for being the most awesome host. Thanks Eric!

It was awesome to see everyone again even though it was only a couple of weeks since Chicago.

Thanks Ryan for the tournament, awesome games, and general gnarliness. (You guys come on down to Richmond sometime soon)

Thanks to the New York crew for being rad. Ken, I need you to figure out the Los Marcos points/American Dollar exchange rate so I can budget my trip. Chombo and Brenden, you are two gentlemen of this sport, and I can't wait until the gloves come off in Los Marcos

Thank you Mark for an awesome finals match, your attitude on the court and off, the bag, and almost for a new bike. I will figure out how to stop you from getting by me even if I have to 360 endo tailwhip lasso backflip into you.

See everyone up in NYC!

good job D.C.!! It was awesome to finally check out the scene down there and play some intense polo.

Since we're all giving thanks, I'll thank my teammates for giving it 100%, Jon for housing us, and everyone one who let Cole borrow a bike.

See y'all in a couple weeks.

I'm bad at math! We had way less shirts than I thought we had, so right now, we have actually raised $346 and still have 6 shirts left for sale. All are size small.

T SHIRTS FOR SALE
We have 6 small T shirts left from the Slapdick Fall Open polo tournament. They are $15 each (plus $2 shipping) I accept paypal and will mail them next day.
100% of the $15 goes to 'Teaching Cancer to Cry', so you are also doing a good thing by buying yourself an awesome shirt!

I will take pictures of the shirts tonight.

RVA, thanks for the love, Serrin and I had a blast -- you're all welcome, come back anytime. We hope to be at Marcos, and an every-other-month DC/Richmond weekend series would be awesome, so I think we'll see you soon.

Ian - as for your cell phone charger, I slipped it into Mark C.'s bag while you were busy stealing his bike, so it should be in Philly.

Kidding. I has, I has. I'll see if I can overnight it tomorrow...Should I send it to your house or your neighborhood donut shop??

My house would be preferred. No telling what the ladies at the donut shop will do with it. Email me at skandlous(at)gmail.com and I'll send you my address.

Ryan what the eff you talking about? I gave you a black eye? You sure it wasn't from all that crying you were doing?

BOOYAA!!!!1!

Don't bring cake to a donut fight.

Don't bring cake to a donut fight.

Yeah, my top eyelid ended up bruising. You didn't even catch me hard, but you must just be wicked bony. Or I'm just sensitive now...

Last night I was unpacking the car and Jen was like "How did you get a bruise on your eye? Or is that dirt?" Unfortunately you didn't get underneath my eye to bruise. Because that would have been way cooler. Its barely even noticeable with my eye open.

Also, why do your mallets bend so easily? Do they use cheap ski poles in VA or something? (what am I talking about, at least you guys can find ski poles)

slapdick bike polo - washington dc

slapdick bike polo - washington dc

We don't discriminate against ski pole brands. We do understand certain companies make more durable poles but they might not always be the companies that we find. Now, Ryan, if you were referencing my ski poles in particular, it doesn't make a difference what it is made out of; I hit the ball harder than you can imagine. Occasionally I shoot through my wheels and the shaft will strike down tube. Insert Phallic Bend Here. A side note; when I shoot like this and hard enough it will create lift on the ball from the bending of the shaft. No more secrets for you.

Don't bring cake to a donut fight.

Don't bring cake to a donut fight.

well done, DC. great hosting once again. I wanna thank:

...RYAN, IAN, DUMPTRUCK, TINK, SEAN, SHANE, BIRDSEYE, GUS, and especially BRENDAN for turning a disastrous weekend into an awesome one. Thank you all very much. I felt like such shit when I got in friday night but things really picked up. Props to Ryan for coming up with the name too. I got heckled a lil bit for "never having my shit together in DC" because people bailed on me at ESPI as well. But I am/we are pleased with the results. Locals and OOT's brought some good game to the courts.
Stay on Target!!!

See you in a couple weeks.

Zack came up with that name. It truly was brilliant. I came up with Oprah's Vajayjay. Everybody else came up with their own names.

I've had "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' stuck in my head for 3 days now though...

Also, it was awesome that you played with at least one person from every city.

killer tourney, just remember to turn on the ac next time. When you come down to play, you must also bring the court with you. Im sure somebody has a truck up there. Here is a big chunk of photos. See you polo princesses in a few weeks.

Yeah, I have bent a good amount of mallets from shooting between the wheels as well. That is also a big reason I stopped using bamboo. I've been using the same two mallets for months now, maybe I just got lucky with some strong poles. I have noticed that some do bend easier than others though.

The results with individual scoring are up on slapdickpolo. We didn't keep track of goals by ringers except for the playoff games. Mark of course dominated the field with 34 goals in 11 games, followed by Nick with 24, and Ian and me with 21 each.

Thanks everyone for coming down. Love you too douggles.

I'm pretty sure that it's Brendan's. If someone could just bring it up for Los Marcos, I'll let him know to expect it.
