2010 North American champs

If you've been keeping up with (inter)national bike polo news, you know that a group of 25 players from all over has been hand picked to do 2 things: 1. Pick the location of the 2010 North American HCBP championships, and 2. Design a more representative elected body to take over whatever tasks are required to keep bike polo the way we like it, but with hundreds more people playing every year. I.E. Bigger, more expensive/sponsored tournaments with uniform rules and regional qualifiers, etc.

St Louis is currently in the Midwest region, and the 4 people representing us in these first two issues are: Chris from CoMO, Ben from Chicago, Jonny from Madison, and Jake from Milwaukee. The two bids on the table for the 2010 NA's are Boston, MA and Madison, WI. Look over the bids if you've got some time. If you then have an opinion about which city you'd rather cuddle in, contact our reps and let 'em know what you think. Voting closes at Midnight on Friday, November 27th.

After a 2010 NA's host is chosen, work will begin on chartering and empowering an elected body to help administrate bike polo on a larger scale. Keep an eye on or this space for updates and opportunities to voice an opinion about those issues.

Friendlies. Saturday, December 5th. Right here.

It's our turn to host the highway 70 polo-show, and the date has been set. Noon til dark, we will play polo with all comers from Columbia, KC, and anyone else we can rope into driving to our fair town.

The possibility exists that we will need to house/entertain a few people overnight. Lemme know who can do that and where and we'll get everyone set.
