Great price ($150) for a pair of wheels - XT hubs laced (32) to Sun Rhyno Lite rims... Pretty tough and a good price - great for polo!

Two things:

Are Trent and anyone else still planning on coming to Dayton for friendlies this weekend?

According to Madbikepolo.org there are 1-2 teams coming to the Mid Wests from Columbia, MO. Anyone know these kids? They posted anonymously.

We played with one of the Columbia kids on Sunday. They've been playing a few weeks, have a pretty good turn-out apparently. Zach was his name, Seth should have his contact info.

We talked about making a 5th team of the extra few players from STL and Columbia. We also talked about getting together for some games some weekend before the tournament.

Lucky, you've got email regarding Dayton.

Mid Wests Tournament Roster:

Trent
Tony R
Lucky
Paul
Nick
Tony S

Maybe: Quig, Dan
Do we have someone to round out a third team? Maybe someone from another city? I say we take as many people as possible, we'll figure something out.

Tony S and Quig would not be able to leave very early (more like 8pm) I'd like to head out earlier than that, i think others would too.

We need to talk about all this stuff - I'll send you all an email.

Lucky said...

I'm driving one car. I think it's Trent, Lucky, and Tony. Leaving St Louis at 5:30pm Friday. Room for one more in my car if you can be ready by then.

I assumed that Nick was driving the other car with the other three people.

Y'all need to work out teams ahead of time. I'll go with whomever wants me, I haven't played with y'all enough to call out my own team.

It looks like turn-out this time around will be big and from all over. Bring as many people as you can, I'm betting that there will be other stragglers to team up with.

Lucky said...

If Columbia has extra people, you could form "Team Missouri"

Matthew said...

Hey, I'm in Chicago, playing with the guys here but will be in STL this weekend - 12&13. I'd like to play some on both days if anyone else is down.

thanks

Tony said...

We will definitely be playing on Sunday - noon-ish at Mount Pleasant Park. Hard court, small ball. I'm trying to get others to play Saturday, too - probably same place. Who is in?

STL BIKE POLO said...

Matthew - send your contact info to
trentsturms - AT - gmail.com
and we'll keep you in the loop.

STeel said...

To all, Lucky and Jenny will be in town tonite, tomorrow and Friday (leaving Saturday). Maybe we could organize a night game? I vote for Friday cuz I have a commitment Thursday @ 8pm

Lucky said...

That's very sweet, but we're only coming in to do a full-on apartment safari. Almost every hour between 9am and 8pm is booked to look at places.

We're not even bringing bikes this time around. If we find a place on Thursday that we like, we'll sign on it and head up to Calhoun to relax a little.

Don't worry though. We'll all be playing polo together soon enough.

Zach from Columbia said...

Hey,
So the columbia polo club was thinking about playing on 21 of April with you guys for a prechampioship match. Also if you could get a couple of other clubs to play that weekend also that would be killer.

STL BIKE POLO said...

April 21st is a Monday.

I'm confused...

Seth Teel said...

April 20th is Earth Day.

Seth Teel said...

or at least the day they celebrate it here in Forest Park.

Zach said...

I am sorry I meant 20th

Lucky said...

"if you could get a couple of other clubs to play that weekend also that would be killer."

Yes. Yes it would. But as far as I know, the next closest crew is Chicago. a 5 hour drive from here.

Jen said...

I actually found a group on Facebook in Cape Girardeau that plays and contacted the admin. He said he would try to get some people together, but I don't know whether they would be able to come that weekend or not.

Justin Wash said...

Never played, but I'm thinking about coming this sunday.

You guys open to a new player?

Lucky said...

Yes. All you need to bring is a bike. All other equipment is provided. See you Sunday.

zach said...

Hey just to give you guys the heads up. I am bring 2 teams for this Sunday and I think the Semo is doing the same. So we are going to have a small Missouri championship going. I know my teams is going to leave from the earth day in forest park around 2:30, so if anyone want to ride with us meet us at the Bicycle work table /repair shop area at 2:30.
Looking froward to play a couple of good games.

Zach

Lucky said...

I figured out who "Matthew" is. I've only met him a coupla times cos he just moved to Chicago from Boston, and he goes by "Matt" in person. Thus the confusion.

How's the "Team Missouri" stuff happening? Is the show me state going to bring more teams to the Mid Wests than the hosts?

Kurtis Hunt said...

Hey y'all, playing on your court was a blast. Well worth the trip from Columbia. I'm sure we'll see you at Madison, but meanwhile, enjoy these photos:
