The Lock-in is a go!

I think I've mentioned this idea to everyone in person, but here's all the info in one place: I wanted StL Bike Polo to host a fun, dead-of-winter, non-competitive, indoor event at the Skatium, pretty much just cos it's there and we can.

Today I finally talked to Robert, the owner and nailed down some details. We tentatively have the whole Skatium reserved from 12:30pm Saturday, January 16th until 11:30am on Sunday, January 17th. That's right, an overnight lock-in.

The rules: We can have outside food. We can roll out sleeping bags. We don't have to change our equipment or tires or anything to spare the rink surface. We have to buy our drinks from him, 2 dollars a can for beer 1 for soda, and he can only serve until 1 am. He discounted the hourly rate down to 800 bones for the entire 23 hours. He will need a 200 dollar deposit in the next couple weeks to secure the time.

Yes? Sounds like fun?
