The Chicago Plan


The plan is to leave the Morning of Friday, August 29 and drive to Chicago. I think I've got myself, my girlfriend, Trent, and Cole in my car with 4 bikes and 4 bags. If you've got a geared bike or a flip-flop hub, bring it, cos the car is staying on the curb after we arrive at our host's place.

Check out this link for a schedule . Basically, there is polo all day and parties every night. Big ones, including a "Messenger Prom" so bring some fancy clothes and a date.

I've got Monday and Tuesday off work, if y'all wanna hang out in Chicago, we'll do that. If you want to get back to St Louis at different times, we'll arrange car/bus/train taking for you or me or whomever.

Another StL team or loose players are totally welcome and will be housed and drank same as my carfull. Just let us know who and how many are coming up on their own or in another vehicle.

Entry fee for the weekend is 30 bux a head. This includes the two days of polo and all the parties, some of which won't be charging for PBR, some of which will. You'll need some more of your own dough for food and souvenirs.

I'm sorry guy, but I don't know if there's a second car going up from here.

Worst come to worst, if you can get to StL, you can amtrak it up to Chicago. We'll make sure you get a place to stay and a team to play on.

If y'all wanna play on Sunday. The handful of mallets I emergency-made last week are in the living room closet of our apt.

Our Downstairs neighbor, Stacy, has keys and knows to let someone in between 1-2pm.

Anyone seen any ski poles around? I wanted to make another mallet, all my poles are toast!

I am willing to trade some abs for a pole....

Seth still has a half dozen of the rental poles I gave you guys last year.

Charlie, there will be StL kids on the Amtrak Friday morning. Follow the links on our front page to the Fucking Bike Club and email them about which train they're going to be on and when they're coming back.

Seth, May I have a pole or two to make some extra mallets. I have some extra ABS i needed to use up.

It looks like Lee is coming, which is awesome, but what are our team(s) going to be?

Are there any other Missourians coming I don't know about? It's Me, Trent, Cole, and Lee, right?

Charlie (or anyone) I'm an StL polo guy who was planning on going but has procrastinated greatly.. If you're still looking for a ride from StL call me 314-608-4049. The catch: I can't leave StL till late Friday night.

I'd be just as interested in riding with someone else and chipping in $$ if anyone is leaving late friday night.
