mess, we've never met but we're both older players, wanna find another older player and make up a seniors team? I'm a serious player but I play for the love of the game.

Yeah I think for the most part a lot of teams have already been made based on the usual mixer rules... I know there was a flurry of "i've never played with you before" matchmaking at the crown.

fiiine

okay fine, we can do the same rules for teams as last year... but one day when i have my own country, you'll be wishing it were as easy as just finding another Scorpio.

Hi Zack, we got your call, sorry Nick is super busy these days so didn't have a chance to phone back. It looks like most people want to play with last year's rules: you must play with people whom you have never played in any tournament with before. No horoscopes for now! We will providing more info for this tournament very soon! (Naomi)

ken and tom work together and i am sure they have played together, this team should not be allowed...i want my mother nature!

Portland United

Piet was a little confused Jason... Team Smurfhammer is for the seattle halloween tournament, not the mixer. Tom is spoken for already though... sorry.... :)

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

Cool! My friend Oleha's looking for a team but we've already played in tournaments together and I think we have to play with people we haven't played with before. Do you have anyone in mind?

I am a free agent.

I have been looking like crazy but have had no luck. But I am sure we will find some one, hopefully sooner better then later.

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

that would be ODB as in Old Dirty Bastard. as oppose to Big Baby Jesus, both being pseudonymes for Russell Jones, a founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan. Do you see what he did there? So actually it was a complete sentence. you were just too slow to know what he was talking about.Next time make sure you know what you're talking about before to try giving my teammate some shit.

Not taking bike polo seriously enough.

dang.

GET OFF THE COURT!

i cant get wiki-pseudonym on my internetz

"So this is how it ends"MACHINE

Remember to email victoriabikepolo@gmail.com with your team or if you are a single looking for a team. We want all the teams sorted by Nov 21 so if you wait until after that to let us know you're coming you might just be on regisration desk duty instead of playing!

actually, nanaimo is only about 120km north of victoria on vancouver island. hmph.

yes sorry. but it feels like more because of the mountain in the middle

I have been working on a beautiful Nanaimo artifact.

Oleha and I (Lisa) need a third. Or we could split up if other teams are looking...
Would love to play with someone from out of town...
Holla!

Lock up yer whiskey cabinet , take the batteries out yer megafone and hide all things furry coz I is commin back with a rool book stuffed down ma pants and a hankering for some canadian bacon. If ya need a third and haven't heard anything about my polo playin abilities then gimme a holla coz my passports valid and my tyres are inflated.

"So this is how it ends"MACHINE

this is great news!

Did someone say Bacon!!

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

I'm also gonna need a team for this one, any takers?

Portland United
www.eighthinch.com

Sorry but this response is too cryptic.

I refuse to try to interpret it.

Okay, so Agilla, Pieter and Kenichi are a team - who is Jason playing with? Jason is probably going to show up and kick Agilla's ass. Shit.

Kayla, Medic Mike and Rowdy are looking for a third.

Ooohhh I need a team :( anyone looking for a third?? huh? huh?

Lep from Winnipeg and I are now looking for a third............................................................................................................

I'll be your third! I've been practicing with the Ottawa crew for 2 years! Whadda ya say??

So Jim is out? Is this a team then? Can you email me to let me know. Sorry I'm getting annoyed trying to figure it all out. victoriabikepolo@gmail.com

Jim bailed due to financial constraints.
Shelley - we would love to have you join us!
Naomi - put down myself, Lep and Shelley.

Thanks!!!! Should we expect some friday night pickup if we come out early?!

Cool! Yeah Van, Winnie and O-town ready to throw down! ha ha that was bad sorry... Really excited to play with you guys! See you Friday.

p.s

okay i got you guys. yes there should be pick up on friday at the lacrosse box!

Yep... I need a team....

Kayla, what.... I guess we might work it out tomorrow at pickup at Alberta Park..
but if anyone wants to work something out feel free to ring me and we can register!!!1

Hello All,

There will be Friday night pick up at the Lacrosse box. We will be setting up courts and playing polo until around 10pm so if you get in before that come and join us. This is also a good place to find your billet if you dont already know who they are and how to get to their house.

If you have room bring lots of warm clothes and maybe even an extra blanket to hang out in when you're not playing cus it's gonna be cold. Rain gear might also be a smart choice. Basically dont expect anything warmer than last year but with a little rain mixed in.

Have a safe trip over and we can't wait to see everyone!!!!

Wicked cant wait!! I land just after 9pm, what is the best way to get from sydney to Victoria and once there where do I go and how do we find out about billets? Sorry for all the questions!

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

The best way to get downtown from the airport is to take a bus or get a taxi (this is obviously the more expensive route ~$50). I think it's little far to ride your polo bike (some may disagree). I dont see you making it to the courts by 10 if your flight gets in at 9. When we know who everyone is staying with we will send out contact info and their address so you can find your way.

We will do our best to put up a link for the transit system and any other info. If you have specific questions about travel and housing email the listserve victoria-bike-polo@googlegroups.com as this is checked more frequently.

Big bummer: Bottles fucked up his back pretty bad. Kiersten and I are now looking for a third. Send your resumes: mrmartinhauck@hotmail.com

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

Someone slay for these slayers while I'm slaying physio.

Me and Medic Mike are thirdless. Anyone out there looking for a team? Kayla? Slayson? Email me at jleerolfe[at]gmail[dot]com.

Bethink thee of the albatross, whence come those clouds of spiritual wonderment and pale DREAD, in which that white phantom sails in all imaginations... ~Herman MFing Melville

B.O.G.

We have one more loose player on our list as far as I know - Ben from Nanaimo. Don't think he frequents these forums but ask Jawn or Fred about his skillz. I'll email you with his email addy.
If you pick him up I think we have 24 teams exactly and no loose players. If you find someone else let us know asap!
ATM there are 2 more spots on Bill's posse if anyone else shows up but this looks perfect!
Hopefully no one else will randomly show up and throw a wrench in all our plans - we're trying to schedule a lot of the games beforehand!

Ciao~

Billeting: (please let me know if you need a place and don't see your name on this list)

I don't check these boards enough.. Me and Naomi still thirdless.. So.. If there be singles how bout email gperala@gmail.com or well just figure it out when we get there. Or if someone is undecided.. Decide now and play with us. Word. Sorry to hear about your back bottles. That sucks!

ben from nanaimo is supposed to be coming and doesn't have a team, and tom from portland said he was coming, i don't know if he still is, and doesn't have a team.

Just confirmed with Gena..

The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

I've attached the schedule for the first two rounds for Saturday morning, please take a look. If you are scheduled to play at 10am, please show up by 9:30 so we can get you registered and on the courts by 10!

The 24 teams are divided into 4 pods, and each team will play four games in the first two rounds. Following these games will be two more rounds based on performance, with another 4 games for each team.

Sunday we will hold three 8-team mini tournaments for teams ranked 17-24, 9-16 and 1-8. Everyone will get another three games There will be prizes for winners in each section. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Nice!

Wishing I was there.

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

The weather has warmed substantially (+5ish) and the snow is mostly gone from roads and parking lots - keep your fingers crossed but so far the polo gods have been benevolent. Keep the ritual sacrifices and dances going and we may actually make a weekend out of this!

On a separate note: Can anyone who is planning on coming in on the Coho tomorrow morning please email me - Victoriabikepolo@gmail.com
The Coho arrives at 10 and we are going to get the first round rolling at 10 so I want to make sure we have accounted for everyone who may have a hard time making that time line.

Thanks!!!

Results?! How did my team do?

Julian, Cody, Cherri over Leon, Andre, Forest 5-2 (I think).

Thanks everyone for an amazing weekend - we had our biggest tournament yet this year and was it ever amazing! We hosted 24 teams, and ran 4 courts (in two separate locations), managing to get 11 games in for every team over the whole weekend. On day one we got in two sets of scaling round robin games and the ranking from saturday set up three, 8-team, single elim mini tournaments (A, B, C) for sunday. The final results are:

A - Tourney
1st Julian, Cody, Cherri
2nd Leon, Andre, Forest
3rd Pieter, Jason, Kenichi/K-Dawg
4th Shannon, brooke, tom (EV)
5th Luke (vic), stiven, jawn
6th Zach, Aaron, Nick
7th Martin, Kayla, kiersten
DFL Dan (Nanaimo), Garret, Curtis

B - Tourney
1st Rowdy, medic mike, Mark (oly)
2nd Ken, John m, Ali
3rd Valley, Emrys, Geoffrey
DFL Gena, Naomi M, Tom (ptld)

2nd Ben (EV), Lep, Shelley
3rd Anna, Will, Machine

MV female - Shannon (EV)

MV newb - Brent (Vic)

Best Shot – Nick (Vic)

Longest distance traveled - Lep (Winnipeg)
Second longest distance traveled - Steve Machine (San Fran)

Most Senior Player - Bill Ryan (Vic)

Sorry I don't have the full ranking for all three tourneys, I had to do this from memory so I could only remember so much and I may have mixed up or forgotten some of this.. so correct me If I have any of it wrong please.

Congrats to all the winners and to all the players, we had fantastic weather and amazing games all weekend long. Thanks to Recyclistas for hosting the party on saturday night, and to all the out of towners who pitched in to help build and tear down boards, run games, clean up and just help all around - you made it possible for the rest of us to keep our sanity!

polo love

Victoria we love you. So good. So right. If anybody finds my sliver flask.. enjoy it..

Thanks for the great tournament Victoria!

You all put in a lot of work for this event and it showed. I don't think I've ever played so much polo at a tournament. The courts were awesome. The food was tasty and plentiful. The party was kick ass.

Congrats Cody Julian and Cherri.

Martin for the biggest dick award.

Luke, your band sounded rad. Let us know when you play Vancouver next.

Thanks to our gracious hosts for taking such good care of us.

Awesome polo, see y'all next time.
