Oh Yea!

im there broz

wait, google maps says it's 6.5 hours from edmonton. that's bullshit, right?

Seems right to me.

It will be good to finally get these prairie clubs together!

Most definitely. We hosted Saskatoon in the fall but I don't believe I have played with anyone from Alberta. Somehow I have only made it east and south.

super pumped to get us all together! no 700$ flights, just polo.

i think its usually 5 1/2.. but its been a while ive done it without kids which skews the whole equation..

Ya, its only an easy 5 hr drive. I've done it many times...

It's like 5 hrs in a car, 7 in a bus

Free agent here. Will only play with one person from Saskatchewan and one from Manitoba.

Awesome!

Looking forward to meeting the other prairiepolopeeps.

(Guess I'd better get going on hiring some employees so I can get out of the shop for this weekend)

I'm with Bottles - free agent here, would like to have a teammate from Sasky and Toby. Apply within.

Do we want to make this a thing? Call it a mixer of sorts? I like both options. Bringing my team and/or playing with new people.

im totally down with the mixer idea.

for information beyond us 3 that came to winnipeg, saskatoon polo has been solely pickup. i think even the idea of making teams that you would stick with for a weekend is a learning curve..

once we get playing more ill toss the idea around with the folks here. im just aiming for a big turnout from our three provinces and we can figure out the rest.

i was thinking of a team of dads... inter provincial could work

I'm a dad too!
Just need a third from Manitoba.

Yah that should be the rule #1 of this friendlies tournament! Unless there is not a player from one of the provinces left? So then I to am looking for a team that will crush all the other teams!!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

do I get dual citizenship? Alberta & Saskatchewan? I did grow up just NE of Saskatoon.....

Born in northern Saskie, spent the last 10 years in the 'Peg!

Is this consensus? Should it be official that everyone needs to play with the other provinces? I know that some of our folks were looking to play with a set team as practice together. Should I talk it up here in Winnipeg and let you know?

sounds like a fun idea, but I'd be surprised if theres a balanced number of players from each province to make this feasible.

Free agent here as well looking for a team.
I also don't care if some people play as a city team and some people play as mixed teams.

I have been thinking about this a bunch this afternoon. I believe we have some players that would feel less inclined to travel to this event if they have to play with strangers. I think it is a cool idea and we should definitely promote it. However in my mind the best possible scenario for this event is if we get the most people out possible. I don't want to alienate anyone who is shy, or anyone who just really wants to play with their team. It would be way cooler if they all just came and had a good time. I will talk to my team and see if they want to split up and join in with others.

i think its a great idea. but totally dont think it would fly for every! team. saskatoon is pretty new to polo. the whole tournament will be an eye opener.

how about we shoot for a prairie mixer year 2 or 3 ;) this one will be some mixed teams, some not, all good polo. :)

Bottles you want to team up for this?

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

are you for sk or mn? i say eff that bizness let's make the team that's gonna win!

I am game for what ever! But if we don't do that Bottles you interested? we can be Team Visor?

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

I'm down with team visor.

I don't think this has to be a mixer I was just throwing out the idea of mixing teams. Play with anyone you want. Just make sure you come to this.

i've got a cage with cutouts, do i have to start my own team, or swap it out for a visor?

What do you think Bottles? Should we accept him onto Team Visor!!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

I'm down with it. I'd leave that silly little cut-out cage at home though.

Edit:

This is currently the team to beat.

visors dont help you put the ball in the net.

My mallet does. Blam!

Let the shit talk begin.

I think if people will feel more comfortable with their set team and choose to come then thats cool, let them play together.

Some of us could care less about winning and are there to meet our fellow prairie peeps.

x2

a suggetion here if you guys want to do the mixer thing.....do what Portland did last year. Day 1 - morning swiss rounds, afternoon double elim tournament with whatever teams people want to enter. Day 2 whole new tournament same format, made up of teams drawn randomly from a hat, put all the players from each province in a seperate hat, and draw one player from each hat to make up the team to shuffle it up as much as possible.

I agree. After reading through the comments I think this would satisfy all those inclined to participate. :)

that sounds sweet. that makes day two optional too for those who need to get back on the road early

This idea sounds great. Minus people leaving early. I want a two day party!

x2

two day party! i may try and give mark l. a run for his money... ;)

Thats what I like to hear. It is important to crown a party champ at these events. I think you could do well, the kids have probably given you some sleep deprivation training at this point.

will need a third for this ...

Definitely coming to this one! is there room in the green machine Justin?

Danimal

Man this is gonna be fun!

I'm very down for mixers, but there should be some sort of equal division of skill amongst the teams. Like best players with worst players

found this http://bit.ly/dN9mjO lying around

Well that will work for Josh and Bottles (One of Edmonton's best and worst players)

ya.. i cant seem to upload the poster here. kevin is going to sort it out tonight he said.

LOBP keeping the Great plains region down

Toronto, once again oppressing the hinterland

for the record, it was my (file too big) bad.

Hey Neil

Are you sorted for a team? Need a Calgarian? This one's available...

I still don't have a team sorted out. Who is available, you?....

Edit.

Scott and myself just need a third for this, Team Mushroom Vs. Mushroom is looking for a third.

Yup - I'm available.

Edit, We might already have a third.

are there any polo players in winnipeg that are also dads?

also registration should be open soon if folks want to lock down teams and such. :)

Dan Moroz is a dad. Not sure about anyone else who would be travelling to this.

beauty of a poster

This is going to be ammmmmaaaazzzzzing. I like Justin's suggestion for a mixer.

Registration is now open.... I sign up Bottle(Edm), Josh(Edm) and Mr Anderson(Cal)!!
Thanks, see yall soon!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dFh4a3ZaaEZwNzhtcXhzY1o...

what's the link to see who has signed up?

Just signed up Different Strokes from Winnipeg: Mark Harper, Kev D, Eryn! We are down to mix it up for a portion of the weekend as well.

ill get on that.. dont want to make all y'all's phone numbers and stuff public. ill just link to a different spreadsheet. gota head out tonight to do some late night baking.

Another Saskatchewan free agent here looking for a team!

I am down. We could make a prairie threesome if there was some interest from Winnipeg....

I haven't asked around WUPAss about teams yet, and my travel plans aren't settled (I may have to work that Friday), but I'd be interested in a mixer.

Awesome, sounds like a plan to me, provided you can make it down!

Team: Portage la Polo?

Love it!

Should I sign up our team? If groggyboy can't make it we could always find another WUPAss member?

Yes and yes. Forward an email to darrenbwood@gmail.com and I'll confirm conact info.

All signed up! Everyone else better get ready for the pain.

This is coming from the 15th/18th place finisher at last fall's Toronto tournament, so watch out!

I'll be flying in or out of Saskatoon for this. What's the airport accesibility like?

the airport isnt far from the courts http://bit.ly/h5iJ3Q and the courts are fairly near by to anywhere where things will be happening.

also the busses have bike racks on them if your polo bike is less than fun on any distance.. some folks have cars/trucks

it's Saskatoon....nothing is far from anything....

fact.

buses are SUPA easy! its one bus to broadway area, which is like whyte ave. Just look up saskatoon transit for knowing interests. Did it lots, no probs

Just looking at the courts and looks good!

You guys planning on creating boards for two separate courts?

we are hoping so.. there is currently a bball hoop in one of them. but we are talking w the city..

Oh my, so pumped for this tournament... i fee like an interloper being a recent coastal transplant to the prairies... excited to mix it up on the Sunday and play with some new folks. Will register a team soon.

saskatoon folks will get their act together once we start playing again..

I WANT TO BE ONE OF THOSE TBA'S!!!!!!

I am not entirely clear on the payment process. It said contact "us" for details, is that Bryn?

(+1 WPG team)

i suppose i should sort that out.. what do people usually do? paypal? email $? check in mail?

bigger tourney's usually use paypal or something. Smaller tourneys often just pay on the day at the tourney....up to you really.

yeah thanks Saskatoon to coming to Thanksgivin in Winnipeg it was a goood time. I for sure will be there for "The Polo Prairie's"
my first out of city tourny it will be cool!!

Alright Poloteers, who's up for another mixer team. Free Agent from Winnipeg seeks "mix it up" team.

I don't have a PayPal account, but I could definitely create one. Are we going with that?

i think we will just take cash money from folks when they show up. probably the easiest option for all.

Yah just have online team registration and and then cash in hand on tourney day like mentioned. Every time someone signs up for the NA's or Wild Card tournaments Pay-pal takes like 2 bucks off as their fee. So keep it simple dont get caught up in the NAH reg shit! Keep the fun tourneys fun!!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

i think i may be a fun tourneys fun kind of guy so seems like a good fit :)

11 teams registered...

5 (+some other players on mixed teams) from winnipeg! now thats a polo caravan.

That there is a lot of teams from Winnipeg. I am looking forward to this. WUPASS polo shall take over the world.

X5

will there be any pick-up games?

i sure as hell hope so ;)

i might be there Thurs night so if any peeps might be around friday night maybe some pick/up .
i think friday afternoon i might go to the "Synchrotron."

I am all paid up and really looking forward to this weekend.

Thinking about flying out from Vancouver for this (as I just noticed there is a decent seat sale), anybody looking for a team?

not me. but stoked youll make it out :) there are a few* folks from winnipeg coming up...

*in this usage a few actually means a thwackload.

Thanks Bryn, I'll see what I can do! Let me know if you hear of anyone....

ill toss it around at our next pickup. but this being many saskatoon players first tournament... the idea of making teams seems to be a tough sell

Just realized I have a prior commitment to a fishing trip that weekend, bummer :(

Next year for sure!

yes next year for sure.

I just found out I might be able to go. This would be my first tourney. If anyone is short a player let me know. I will post again when I am sure I can get the time off.

One day bike polo will be as big as any other sport.

nice. it would be great to have you. that would make it 6 prairie cities represented :)

Are you guys able to set up teams of single players?

There are a few BFP403 players who are interested in coming but do not have teams.

well there was a guy from Lethbridge looking for a team....I'd say come. there are always a few singles at every tourney, and they always find a team to play on.

yes i dont see why not. so id say spread the word to come.. and ill bring it up about formalizing a singles mixer pool for teams..

hey are dogs allowed in the park?... I plan to bring one ..

OK, I got the time off and I will be there to play if a team needs a third or for some pick up or just to watch.
It's all good.

One day bike polo will be as big as any other sport.

If you are in need of a place to stay please contact me - Adrien.blais@gmail.com . Let me know how many people are in need, if you require indoor accom, or if camping works. I will hook you up with any available spaces with our people.

Thanks!

Adrien

Is there a list of registered teams? I just want to confirm Skywalkers has registered. also how can I pay?

added list of teams, so far, to main info.

skywalkers are registered. to pay contact: bicyclesmile (at) gmail

I am figuring out this website...

I'm still hoping!!!!!!

i booked my flight for Friday morning i am in for pick up Friday night anybody in?

Saskatoon if you need help with anything setup what have you i can help ya!
let me know ok.... man i am excited to play with everybody!

ps i know i owe one of you a tube from Tanksgivin' i will bring one.

I'm in for polo forever that weekend. Lets get some pick up happening indeed!

I think this tournament should be the "Prairie Region" qualifier....just sayin.

Sounds good to me!

true fact. who makes those decisions?.. ;)

though ill be in calgary whether i get into the wildcard or not :)

Makes good sense. Let's do it! NAH reps can decide I'm guessing

WUPAss
EVBP foreva

ya that's not gonna happen since there is no "Prairie Region" at this point, I was just kidding, but I will be talking to everyone there about a Prairie Region, and if everyone is on board I'll be pushing the NAH to look at creating it for next season.

who wants to route for an out of towner?????

like cheer? or youre wondering how to get here?

I was just yoking!

also I lost the paypal email and didn't pay? Can I just pay you guys in person or would you rather the paypal?

also any word on housing?

You can contact adrien.blais@gmail.com about housing, and paying in person is fine! cya soon!

One week!! hell yah!!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

woot!

So Wheatie and I should be in town sometime friday afternoon and leaving monday morning , I'm bringing out a tent trailer to house a bunch of calgary peeps but, would love some recomendations on camping spots... and what time do you expect to get things going on saturday?..

like campground campground? you could try Gordon Howe Campground: http://bit.ly/jzNfD4

which is actually pretty close to the court: http://bit.ly/ioO9vW

or were you looking for something out of town but close. Or just someones driveway to park in?

I can fill you in on more of a schedual later monday night, when we sit down to figure it out. Folks have expressed getting a lot of games in so i am going to guess early'ish

Sweet, city camping will be perfect... any decent fish in that river?
Early is fine and lots of games is good ..but ... lots of pick up is better ..

my retired ukrainian neighbour fishes almost daily and is always cleaning fish in his backyard, so i figure there must be? i see folks fishing by the weir often..

it would be fun if you were camping in the city. ive stayed there and its a fairly nice spot.

you could also park the tent trailer in my driveway and have access to a full kitchen and amenities and whatever else, you know, comes with a house if you want! although that trailer park is closer to the courts....!

nice, might take you up on that offer .. we'll see if Wheatie and I get kicked out friday night or not with a big fire some air soft guns and dirt bike wheelies ;)...

Can we have an Informal prairie region meeting at this event? I would like to sit down with the other people who are Involved in organizing polo throughout the prairies. Anyone interested? I would like to make our fall tournament (tanked givin) the official fall open for the prairie regio this year. As well as discuss the possibility of becoming an official region.

definitely.

Glad you are On board Justin. I may be more excited about these conversations than the actual polo. Well
Maybe not quite i am pretty excited about the polo.

Glad you are On board Justin. I may be more excited about these conversations than the actual polo. Well
Maybe not quite i am pretty excited about the polo.

I would like to come too do you have a day or time figured yet?

One day bike polo will be as big as any other sport.

I thought that maybe Saturday evening we could all sit down for a drink somewhere. Not a party but a meeting for those who actually want to be involved in helping to build the prairie region.

I am in as well.

Would not hurt at all. We can force a prairie region into the NAH!?

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

We should at least talk to each other about it. I don't know how many times I mentioned how far it was for us to get to our Midwestern Regional Qualifier the other weekend. I have been attempting to make my dissent well known. It may be possible to sway the way the regions are structured. After all, bike polo is being run by bike polo players. I am pretty sure I play bike polo.

yup, you play polo. :)

im in, travel was a huge setback for us here in saskatoon.. nice that the na's are close ;) hope theres going to be a dedicated pickup court. or we can just declare one, cause wildcard spots are going to be fairly precious.

perhaps an early evening sit down? we are sorting out the schedual tonight so we will make time for it. though there is a party sat night, and these legs spin fairly fast.

I heard the beer is expensive over there... is this true?.. should we bring stockpiles?

yes. bring mucho beers :)

even more than here? wtf

Polo mom can't make it so Scott and I still need a third for this tournament.

message me if your available.

the way scott spreads out he basically takes up the space of two players...

We might just bring a cardboard cut out of Emily and zip-tie her to the net.

Hey Neil,
I am not much better than a cardboard cut out, but at least I won't blow away in the wind.
So if you still need a third let me know.

One day bike polo will be as big as any other sport.

I AM SO SAD!! REALLY! IM LOOKING AT FLIGHTS NOW AND THEY ARE LIKE 400 ONE WAY! THIS IS SAD! I AM SAD.

emily you're such a tease, you've had a bus ticket to philly for weeks. LUCKY YOURE SO CUTE BEAVY....

zip-tie goalie will probably be more effective in net than real-life heffring (LOVE)

Is anyone still looking for a team last minute? Sky Walkers just lost a teammate. Plus we have some really cool jerseys that will make us popular.

might be some stragglers from calgary to help with that , if no one opposes of one guy on two teams I would defiantly step in ....

its alright we got Nathan from Lethbridge for our third.

Weekend Schedual:

Saturday
9-7 swiss rounds polo, first to 5 or 12min games
8~9/10 sit down chat about organizing polo in our region. location tbd but will be somewhere we can get food
9-late party with goldsprints at caffe sola. licensed w beer as cheap as we can find it.

Sunday
9-5 double elimination, first to 5 or 12min games
~5 prizes, pats on backs, photos, etc..

some local info can be found via this map: http://bit.ly/m8sQgk if there is anything else youd like to know how to find msg brynrk.

Good day Polo on the Prairie attendees!!!

Some basic court info:
-We are running a single court 120’ x 60’.
-Tennis court asphalt surface, flaking a little, but totally good enough.
-Net size 180cm x 85cm, goal lines marked.
- 12” boards along chain-link fence, 3’ boards elsewhere.

Safety info:
-Handlebars must be capped. Bullhorn handlebars are not allowed.
-The end of the mallet handle must be capped / plugged.
-Helmets are mandatory

A Few Game Rules:
-Teams should try to wear matching colors
-Overtime:
During the elimination rounds where a winner must be determined and the match results in a tie at the end of regulation time, the game will be stopped. The match will enter “sudden death” overtime where the first team to score will be declared the winner. The ball will be reset at center court. Each team will return to their side and the referee will oversee another joust.
-Ball-joint and side-joint: Not to be confused with a scoop pass, toss or other ball handling. The ball-joint / side-joint is defined as pinning the ball between an open end of the mallet head and the playing surface and then dragging it. Ball-jointing / side-jointing will be allowed ONLY in the player’s defensive zone. Ball jointing / side-jointing in the offensive zone will result in the ball turnover and concession of half-court.
-Bike-to-Bike contact:
• Incidental contact is permitted.
• Throwing a rear wheel or skidding into another player’s bike is not permitted.
• T-boning is not permitted.

If anyone disagrees, chat it up, and we can agree on something

I think when a game goes into sudden death because it is tied when time runs out, it is unnecessary to reset and joust again. It takes time and disturbs the flow of the game, as long as the players are aware that time has run down, and the next goal wins, I see no reason to reset play...just my 2 cents. (this is the way we did it at the Qualifier in Portland).

x2. Resets suck

X3

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

sounds good. no resets then.

I am not opposed to this but lets make sure it gets discussed with all of the teams at a players meeting or something. It would suck to not know and then get scored on because you thought the time ran out.

End of the shaft must be plugged not the ends of the mallet? just clarifying that!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

mallet handle = shaft, right?

Yes mallet shaft is the handle.

What about making this a regional qualifier for the upcoming NAH tournie in Calgary? I don't see why it can't be done. This is the biggest gathering of prairie polo and NA reps can make a call on it. Wildcard spots can be opened up for a couple of prairie spots. What ya'll think?

WUPAss
EVBP foreva

ive got no idea how those sorts of decisions are made. it think thats what we plan on talking about sat night, post polo, pre party.

and as much as id love for this to happen [personally] i think NAH has the 2011 season structure set in [soft?] stone..

It technically does not meet most or all of the NAH requirements for hosting a Regional Tournament. Such as a 32 team minimum capability, specific amount of notice regarding registration, $$$$ going to the NAH for every team registered, things like that. Nevermind the fact that we would have needed to push for this months ago and been sanctioned as a regional before it happened. My discussions with regional reps is that this year is set. Next year things will be re-determined.

Eryn

Would be great in my eyes (as I haven't quakified yet) but does make more work... Next year with all these traveling prairie people I think we will have to have a prarie region!

Danimal

What Erin said plus you would have had a bid in for it last october, be best to wait and make a bid for next year if yall are interested.

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

CAN'T WAIT!!! And yes, yes , yes, yes, yes...to many things talk, especially about the Prairies Organisation...I am in!

...and by the way, we are still looking for a 3rd...I had a lead but I am not sure if he is still coming so, if someone want to play with us, 1st come, 1st serve...email rskbikepolo@gmail.com

See you gang on Saturday,

ill be your third :)

my team is down to 2, instead of finding another third we are splitting to fill the other doubles..

The guys from Dixicle cant make it now. 2 of them have to work now and one of the girlfriends just got hit by a car and broke her pelvis multiple times?

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

understandable. pass along well wishes from all of us here, and that some of us will catch them at the na's

I can't wait till this weekend.

Also "multiple times"? Shit I hope she recovers okay.

ummm 2 last questions .. whats up with the no having camp fires?... and is there any decent mom 'n pop type places to get fried chicken?..

see ya in about 24 hrs ..

7-11 chicken works too .. if they have that there ...

so you got a camp space? that would be fun. no idea about fires, maybe theres a fire warning? im not sure..

ill ask around for the best fried chicken, im vegi so off the top of my head i dont know. believe it or not we do have 7-11's here so that could work for your fix. plus this gas station, fire creek, http://bit.ly/iQV4Sd sells bannock + other stuff you might want to check out.

i would definitely recommend the park cafe. old school diner done right. + right around the corner from the court :)

Ya, I got a spot at Gordons , unless I find something on the drive in that will let me have a fire .. the diner sounds sweet, will have to check that out. If you guys will be at the court on friday night we might be availabe to help out with stuff..

you can have a fire in my backyard... :)

ok sold on that.... the trailer is 16 x 10 poped out ..

skullshag at hotmail dot com we should be in town 4 or 5 ish ??..

just e-mailed you...

friday night is set up the boards night. folks are meeting there ~7pm till dark then pickup at a not as good lighted court? or pints out? or whatever :)

im unfortunately working till 10. but ill have my bike and mallet and be ready to roll.

Yes where is the good fried chicken!! Cory I am in lets eat!!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

Baaagooock...

Will there be any pickup happening fri. night?

One day bike polo will be as big as any other sport.

Yup
Folks are setting up the court round 7. Then maybe pickup there or another courts w lights. If rain then a hangout?

I wish I wasn't working till 5 tonight.

Also how is the weather there? Rainning today? Cold and sunny tomorrow?

no rain but threatening all day.. cold'ish and sunny tomorrow and sunday. :)

Coming to see all of you real soon. Can not wait for this.

Cowpunchers are on z road and moving fast! Let us know where the polo party is.... We expect to be arriving around 1am and will be very thirsty!

Danimal

I'm at the court where the fuck is everyone? Wake up prairie polo.

We're eating breakfast at one of your fine Saskatoon establishments

B.F.P. 403

Everyones here at the park cafe. Smells great

Danimal

Cowpunchers win the A bracket, Different Strokes win the B bracket....AB VS MB final starting in ten minutes...

Cowpunchers 5-3 in the final. Thanks Saskatoon, awesome tourney...good work, and great finally getting to meet you guys.

thanks, and way fun to meet y'all too. we hope to keep the couch :)

Thanks Matt, Brin(not sure how to spell it) and the rest of the Saskatoon crew, it was a great tournament! And well done on hosting your first tournament! It was great to see everyone and to meet lots of new people. Thanks everyone for a great weekend!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

bryn :)

Had a blast .. snow, rain , sun .. Saskatoon has it all in 8 hours. So fun to play some new faces and I think Ozwald is gonna sleep for a day now after all that.. Please throw another tourny sometime but figure out the washroom scenerio a bit better for the girls ... Bryn I forgot to grab a shirt and place a order for a supersexy cargo bike ... J.B. I love yer laugh on the court .. can't wait to do it again ..

This was the best. I am so happy to have met all of you and to see the people I knew once again. Prairie region has me so stoked on bike polo. Thanks for a weekend of fun and competitive bike polo. AB jets those games were my favorite of the weekend. Edmonton please host a city vs city bench minor. That would be awesome. A huge thanks to Duane and Jess for being incredible hosts. We can not thank you enough. Also to all the organizers way to do a fabulous job with your first tourney and the first prairie region tourney. See you all soon.

Wish I could have been there. Next year for sure.

Trying to bring bike polo to Moose Jaw.

we should do a day tourney or something in regina. or a day long organized pickup..

Thanks for putting on the tourney, it was great. Organizing polo was great(Prarie region) and meeting new people was great. My poloverse has gotten bigger and better.

One day bike polo will be as big as any other sport.

Anyone have any photos of the weekend?

Just memories buddy!! There are some floating around on facebook, I will tag you in one so you can find them.

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

Fun times all round, thanks for a great weekend. Great games and good to see friendly faces from Alberta. See you all soon I hope. Yes to Regina hosting and yes to you all coming out for Tanked Givin in October.

Awesome weekend!

Thanks to all those saskatoons for a great tourney, Thanks to calgary for drinking all my whiskey... you'll have to pay me in kind when we squash you in winnipeg.

Prairie polo is sweet polo.

Much Love

I don't think Calgary drank your whiskey. I think it was people closer to home.

Why does everyone blame us for drinking their drinks? If it was Wheatie we take no responsibility for him!!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

But if it makes you feel better I will let you drink his beer in Calgary!

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

didnt i place for like heckling or something... ;)

i think edmonton took at least 1 through 5 on heckling

The same slur of words over and over ain't heckling buddy.

i thought i was being fairly original.. :(

something to work on for oct then i suppose.

what i dig is a fixed gear team winning it, especially two out of three no brake.
fixed forever you make me believe!
