before the fiasco

I was thinking we should meet at the Atomic Cowboy instead of the Royale. Please let me know if you have any objections to this. The AC is closer to Turtle Park and is non-smoking, for reals. And, if you compare this map to Seth's map, you will notice that his house is very close, whatever that means.

New Time?

There has been some discussion of moving the scheduled start time for our games to 5:00 (still on Sundays). Will this work out for everyone? I know that a few people already enthusiastically endorsed this change, but I don't want to leave anyone out of the democratic process.

When it starts getting dark earlier, we can obviously schedule accordingly.

Sunday's Game

For Sunday, is currently predicting highs in the upper 80s to low 90s, meaning this Sunday should be our coolest game yet. Trent and I are going to Ohio this weekend to see Trent's sister and her newborn baby, but we are going to be back in time for polo, as long as everyone is okay with it being scheduled a little later than usual. How is 5:00 for you guys?

The Boiler

Well Sunday is coming up quick, and it's going to be a hot one out there. Do we have enough brave souls for a game this week? Leave a reply and let us know what you think. And don't forget about Brian's generous offer to open his shop to a bunch of polo hooligans on Saturday! (read below)

Bike building day

I know what you're all thinking as I pedal my Murry around the rink: "man, I wish my bike had hideous colors and cost less than my cable housings!" Well here's your opportunity. I'm opening up my shop this Saturday from 1pm until we feel like being done. Come on in and build yourself a polo specific bike. I'll have my sawsall for making short handlebars and any other crazy modifications you want. Or just bring your bike and work on it there as we hang out. Or just hang out. You can get a whole bike here for a $30-$40 donation (depending on the bike) and parts are priced proportionally. We can get a game going in the parking lot if we have enough people, and we can always recruit a few from the neighborhood to play.

For those who don't know, we're a non-profit and any donation of bike parts or money would be gladly accepted. Also I can take stuff on trade, in lieu of donation.

We're located in a church, so no alcohol on the property please. I honestly don't know the street address. (the post office hasn't decided it yet) You can mapquest the 400o block of Cottage ave, and we're on the northwest corner of cottage and Bishop PL Scott.

I think that covers it all. Please RSVP if you're going to be there.

I found this gem on the St. Louis Parks Division website:

"In 1812, the first land was set aside to be used for parks. Gravois Park, at Louisiana and Miami; Laclede Park, Iowa and Gasconade; and Mt. Pleasant Park, Michigan and Dakota, are the first parks created in St. Louis. The land was part of the St. Louis Common."
