bike polo equals not larking

Last night I met one of my potential future roommates... We were talking about our spare time activities and interests- of course I mentioned bike polo. This guy had the nerve to compare bike polo to "larking." 

This is the only similar thing I could find on the Interweb, but I found this comparison to be gravely insulting. It's a medieval role playing game. Let's just say this guy is at the bottom of the list for now. So, what are the game plans for the weekend? (I actually plan on playing!)

STL Bike Polo Snow Day


Last weekend the polo court was buried under a bunch of snow, and the court under the bridge was wet, so we made the best of the winter weather in St. Louis. We met at the bridge and went over to the water reservoir for some sledding. It didn't take long before a ramp was built and sledders became moving targets for snowballs. There were some pretty wild wrecks, but I don't think anyone was hurt. Next time we'll have to see what happens if beer gets involved.

Who Wants to go on a Road Trip?

January 6th in Milwaukee anyone?

I think it's time we venture outside of our little polo bubble and see the sights up north. If I see even one "hell yeah" reply I'm goin'. Just one, thats all its gonna take.

Sunday, December 16 -- Game?

Who's ready for some polo? I'm thinking we should plan our triumphant return to our home playing field -- the hockey rink at Mount Pleasant Park. How does 2:00 sound?

Also, you should try to make it to Flamingo Bowl at Washington and 11th Friday night. A few of us will be down there to check it out, and if it sucks, we'll probably end up somewhere else downtown.

Clean Sweep- Sunday Dec 9th @ 12:00


View Larger Map

It seems like everyone is down to help clean under the bridge. I think we should start around noon so we can start playing ASAP. We will need push brooms and maybe a shop vac if some one has one.
The location is 1 block North of Shaw on Thurman. Essentially DeTonty and Thurman

Playing in the mud?

So what's the deal for this Sunday? We can play in the mud again, or on a parking lot (in the rain but we'd have ok traction), or we could play under that overpass and stay dry. We'll just have to sweep it out first to clear out the glass. I could bring some big push brooms if we decided to try that.
