Victoria Winter Mixer

Saturday, December 5, 2009 - Sunday, December 6, 2009
Host club: 
Victoria Bike Polo
Contact info: 
victoriabikepolo@gmail.com

Victoria's third annual winter tournament once again coincides with
the annual Recyclistas Birthday Bash.

The Winter Polo Mixer will be Victoria's first two-day tourney.
Saturday December 5th and Sunday December 6th, 10am-6pm each day.

*UPDATE* The location has been decided. The tournament will be held at the Bullen Park lacrosse box in Esquimalt. This setup is sweet. It's legitimate, which is a first, and it has a smooth and even surface lit by full floodlights until 10pm. Prepare to have your socks rocked.

This is a "mixer" tournament. You must play with a new team, i.e.
people you have never played with in any tournament before (yes, we
have the rosters for EVERY tournament ever organized). We encourage
you to form a team that mixes cities, skill levels,
ages, sexes, genders, hair colours, etc. Singles will be matched up with other singles

Please pre-register! Email victoriabikepolo@gmail.com to register
yourself or your team, arrange billeting, or if you would like help
forming a mixed team.

$10/person entry fee. Players are also encouraged to bring a
non-perishable for the Food Bank. As always, we will have food
on-location, and players sporting themed-costumes will be rewarded.
Please bring your own containers for your beverages. Following the round robin on Saturday there there will be a birthday celebration for Recyclistas Bike Shop.

Hope to see you soon with Victoria's finest.

• 3 on 3
• $10 a head
• Games first to five or 15 minutes.

MANDATORY:

CONTACT:

• No t-boning, including all lateral bike-on-bike force (ie skid checks)
• No throwing mallets
• Don’t be dick

SCORING:
• Shots with the end of the mallet
• No own goals
• You can’t score by passing through the goal to yourself, but you can pass through the goal to a teammate
• The goal is the height of the cones
• If the shot provides the force that puts the ball in, then it’s a goal
• If a goal is scored the team that scored returns to their side, and it's game on as soon as they cross center

BALL JOINTING:
• Pass after a ball joint before a goal
• Can’t score with a ball joint

PENALTIES;

When i was young cycling was my only passion. I used to make my trip with bicycle. I wanted to become a cyclist. But with the passes of time my dream is gone. But I like it still now. It would be my pleasure to join this tournament.

If you can make it out to Seattle you might be able to ride up with us. I'm pretty sure there will be enough cars going to have room.

Yeah, Seattle - when are you guys leaving? Anyone heading up Friday night late?

Gosh I dont think we have any idea when we are leaving, its way too early for us to be that organized! I'm sure someone will have to work, and will leave late Friday.

ok, that helps! thanks, kiersten. if possible, drew and i would love to hitch a ride to victoria with some of you on friday night. it'll be my first tournament as a west coaster (in body, not in spirit, mind you!).

have i REALLY told you how happy you are coming up and playing with me....just saying! xo

me toooooo!

Good to know! Thanks for the offer...

If I can't get two others to help cut the costs of the drive (9.5 hrs!) I might try and meet up with you guys on friday night.

I'm hoping to get a big chunk of the Seattle crew to say fuck cars and go up on the ferry from Seattle. Who wants to drive when we can be sitting on a boat with flasks of cheery holiday beverages getting LOADED?

Nick, Luke, Henry--is the ferry terminal to the courts/places to stay doable up there?

ya man. do the ferry. super cheap duty free booze on board starting at $13 for a litre (thats just over 1 quart for the imperialists). it would be about a 15-20 minute ride to the courts and pretty much anywhere else of significance.

jason - i dont know of anyone that is driving. the drive is way long, we took the clipper last year and easily rode our bikes to the courts. also the state ferry from port angeles is like 10-15 bucks as opposed to 100 + for the clipper, so people could carpool there and take the cheap ferry.

Yup, definitely carpool and take the Port Angeles ferry-

super cheap, plus the MV Coho has some ridiculous service record, like 50 years in daily service with only 2 cancellations for weather... many crossings that shouldn't have happened. (Told to us by a deck officer on smoke break, truthiness suspect)

Plus there's duty free onboard now!

And there's no place in Victoria that is far from another place, even in polo gear.

yeah port angeles! bomb hurricane ridge on yer polo whips
clipper can be cancelled very easily, the coho obviously not.

hey kyle,
i don't know you nor have i seen you play but, but i guess thats kinda what the spirit of this tourney is all about. our team is looking to diversify our teammate portfolio. I'm jawn from nanaimo on vancouver island, and my teammate cordelia is from victoria. we'd love to get someone from south of the border to play with. if you or your mates are looking to be adopted, we are in the market for a chilled out playa who wants to have some fun and kick a lil ass along the way. beers?

Bad news. I won't be able to make this.

...Beers sounded amazing though.

Anyone still looking for a third? I've only ever played in the East Van Crown so I know I've never played on the same team as any of you.

:Edmonton Bike Polo:

there is a list being compiled. email victoriabikepolo@gmail.com and we'll set you up. you will play if you can get here. excited, edmonton rules! do you guys have a winter court set up?
---
victoria bike polo

They were putting skate blades on their front forks but they were having trouble finding balls that worked at -40.

Ha. From there it's just a quick digression to hockey. Edmonton has scoped out an awesome parking garage that may become the winter spot so long as we don't get kicked out.

I'm actually forgoing the Edmonton winter and moving to Vancouver next Thursday so it will be no problem to make it to Victoria. I'll fire off an email to be added to the 'mix'

:Edmonton Bike Polo:

done and done. you should talk with the east van kids, i think there are still people from there looking for team mates as well.

Welcome to East Van Chris. Let's do this.

EAST VAN: WE'VE BUILT IT AND THEY'RE COMING.

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

I'll see you guys next Saturday!

:Edmonton Bike Polo:

assuming there are going to be 2 courts, how are they going to be set up? will the length of each court be the width of the lacrosse box or half the length of the lacrosse box? or some other arrangement? 3 courts?

we're playin around with that...i want to do 2 courts half the length of the box..instead of 2 courts the width. 3 courts would be nice but i dont think its that big.

ahoy! the scheduled departure times for both the clipper and the coho are ear-lee! clipper leaves at five pm and the coho at four pm. are we going to be done with the tourney at that point? let's just say your team does really well and ends up in the final, are we going to get our winnings, polo bike down to the ferry and make it home in time for work monday morning?

I didn't know the ferries left that early. This would be good information to know. Although...as of yet I don't even have a job to go to that Monday. Here's hoping I do.

:Edmonton Bike Polo:

we'll have the tournament sorted out before you guys have to go. we promise! we're doing a round robin, then straight from that we'll play semifinals, finals, and the dfl game. all of which shouldnt take more than 2 hours...and we'll have the rest of the day for pickup. you'll make yer ferry.

eh, fuck it. turns out my boss doesn't want to pay me for monday so I'll be staying late. are there places to crash for the nights we'll be up there? do i need to sign up on a list?

you've got a place. we've sorted people out. on friday night theres a meet and greet and the recyclistas bike shop. we're gona play some pickup there, then move to our night court to play forever. sometime during that you'll get introduced to where yer staying. most billets are 10-15 mins from the court. most everything is 10-15 mins from the court. when is seattle coming over?

sounds like some of the polotron will be up thursday or friday afternoon, the rest will be up saturday morning. i think most of us are leaving on monday. sounds like a whole bunch of awesome, can't wait.

hay chris those are ferries going to washington state, not vancouver. just to clarify...

what are those edmonton guys smokin

No mixing of my team. We've been waiting for the opportunity for a long time. Besides, I've played with you, Naomi and Martin on teams before!!
Best of luck.

Can't wait to catch up with you in Victoria!!

But Lisa the idea of this tournament is for people to play with people they've never played with before. You and Tom played together at the Westside Invite and Tom and Alex at the Yo Moma tournament. Great team but with respect to the idea of the tournament it doesn't conform. But I'm sure you know that.

bob and jim dont have a 3rd do they?
is rory coming>?

luke, naomi, matt, ken, me, nick

kenny and i have played together but other than that i can play with anyone. what about the rest of you?

what about me naomi kenny then?
you matt nick?

i didnt read kens post.
hmm...
martin you could play with me and naomi, nick could play with ken/matt
or vica versa

ooooohhhhh, if only I was able to play both days I'd be all over these opportunities like a fat kid on a smartie.

Since I can only play Saturday I'm going to show up Saturday morning and let fate place me on a team, unless anyone else is time challenged like I am and can only play Saturday? Takers?

See y'all in Vic!

thats going to be really hard for the folks on the clipper. some have to work friday and there are no afternoon ferries leaving seattle. the 8am ferry arrives at 10 something saturday morning in victoria, and i know of 6 people that will be on that boat.

Alright Seattle clipper kids, we're apprised of your situation and promise to be flexible and save you some blueberry pancakes and hugs and kisses. Be nice to the badges at the border and remember, you know nothing of any "olympic games."

And Holly Jolly managed to hold onto the illustrious title of DFL after a well fought match against Ukko's Hammer.

Congrats to all the teams for some excellent polo, and to seattle in particular for taking top 3, well done!

I'm still washing dishes from the weekend, but I already can't wait for next year.

Thanks to everyone involved in running the tournament and housing people. Everything about it was great, especially the blueberry pancakes and chili .... and while I really had a blast brawling with the hanson brothers, I think forrest and machine should have been considered for both best drama and best fight!

Hey, that's me.

That was a great game. You guys hit that ball so F ing hard.

Victoria--hardest shots in bike polo.

Thank you everyone so much! It was a wonderful weekend and I'm really upset I missed the pancakes. You all need to have another tournament soon so I can see what the fuss was all about. The weekend went so smoothly. The Hanson on Hanson fight was fantastic, but our final game against Victoria will be etched in my mind for a long time. GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!!!

Extra thanks to Cordelia and Ryan for putting us up in unexpected numbers.

Hey all. My frostbite is just now subsiding...
