CoMO pull-out tourney this Saturday 3/6/10



From LOBP: "Missouri friendlies/throw in tourney will be held at cosmo park on March 6 starting promptly at noon. All participants will select a beer from the mythical cooler and those with the same beers will form a team. Round robin all day at dusk top two teams play for the glory. Housing available. See you soon."

Who's in, who's out? Who can drive? When do you want to leave? Do you want to spend the night? Who's coming of the injured list this week?

I can drive if I need to. I would leave at 9am and would not want to spend the night. I can take 5 bikes and 3 people comfortably. 4 people less comfortably. 5 people uncomfortably. But it's only a 2 hour drive.

If I'm not needed to drive, Jenny's gonna take the car up to Chicago. So it would be good to know sooner rather than later.

STL BIKE POLO said...

As of now I am in. I'll have to see how I feel on Friday but I think I should be good. If I drive I'd want to stay probably.

Ben said...

Out.

I hate this.

nick said...

Kat said she would house people in Columbia if we want to stay there.

I will not be going. If you want to stay with her, I can give you her number.

Nick

Lee said...

I'm in. I would like to catch a ride with someone who's car can go more than 65 miles an hour. I'm also interested in spending the night.
-Lee

Francis said...

I am interested as long as we leave on Saturday morning rather than Friday night.

is this tournament indoors? i noticed rain in the forecast for Saturday. -Patrick

Ben said...

Cloumbia's huge, fast rink wet with rain? Prepare for broken bikes and broken bodies.

Don't get hurt or die. The injury reserve list is full.

Lucky said...

Columbia, MO: Saturday and Saturday Night. Mostly cloudy. High around 50. Low in the mid 30s.

Looks like Trent can drive folk who want to stay the night. I can drive folk what don't.

Ben said...

Those Darlins at Off Broadway on Friday night. Any takers other than me?

TOPHER. said...

im in for co-mo! Lucky can i rid wit you?

Anchovy said...

im in also. I can pitch in gas cash of course and i can come back or stay the night, whatever works out best. I dont mind going 65 mph. So looks like i fall into the Lucky caravan if there is a spot open.

TOPHER. said...

i will pay for Gas. (my parents gave me a gas card and they are totally cool with it being spent on polo\gas\snacks). we should hit up that steak and shake on the way back. my car dont go over 65 neither.
i literally cannot drive 55.

Jean Genie said...

awesome spoke cards Eugene! bring some more next time we play!

Should I stay or should I play. If I go there may be ankle trouble. If I stay I will be bored....

I think iv gotta bow out to preserve my ankles integrity.
POOP!

Evannn said...

I'm totally in and I plan on staying. I can take me +1 for people and if we take front wheels off I can take a bunch of bikes, probably like 6. And I can drive over 65.

STL BIKE POLO said...

Looks like Lucky volunteered me to drive. That doesn't work for me. I said IF I drive. That doesn't even mean my Jeep will be available. Jen drives it too. Also, I drive like an old man when it comes to the interstate.

-Trent

STL BIKE POLO said...

Ben,

I'm interested in that show.

Anonymous said...

i'll decide by Wednesday or Thursday if the weather is looking favorable and i'm not feeling lazy.

http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/USMO0193

if I go i'll borrow my parents' SUV and could fit at least 3 people comfortably, but not sure how many bikes. i'd definitely want to spend the night somewhere. i did a google search and looks like this Cosmo park has a huge Skatepark! -Patrick

anchovy said...

I got dibs with lucky then.

Maybe there is some sort of way to link to this calender on the front page of our blog. Maybe we can have a calender feature to our blog.

Dear Patrick,
Ride a bike on that skatepark and you'll:
A- get really hurt
B- get a huge fine ticket from a cunt of a park ranger.
C- go to jail. Federal ass pounding jail.
D- all of the above. Fun!
Strict and enforced no bikes policy. *except when u don't get caught.

Is there a gimp category for this weekend? I'll go but iv gotta be back sat nite by 9. My car fits 3 w/bikes. Four without.
Anyone wana go with me in little smokey (my car)? We can leave fri nite or sat morn

Yo, check this out. Clik on my name above. Seems kinda complicated really, but neat to see how Germans in Germany do shit. I mean, whats so hard about drilling a hole, and countersinking a "T" nut.

Jake, thats very funny and its probably a good thing for our polo club that bikes are verboten, just make sure Toph doesn't try to bring his Skateboard.
-Patrick

Tim D. said...

While there is a slight chance of spotty showers, hopefully It won't be anything to worry about. That being said, if it's raining balls in STL Saturday, give us a call, we'll give you a weather report.

People that want to crash overnight, we have plenty of places to choose from.

Anonymous said...

seems i probably can't borrow my parents' SUV this weekend and my car is not mechanically reliable for long drives. i'm leaning toward skipping this tournament, although riding with Jake and getting back by 9PM sounds very convenient. I do have a company gas card I can use at Phillips 66 stations. are we playing polo this Wednesday? -Patrick

Anonymous said...

i can't go, forgot about a monthly poker tournament this weekend. we must play polo Wednesday though!

i'm in but also have to be back in tact for work saturday night. so jake count me in for little smokey. i'd like to leave friday night

-=:*SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT*:=-

Those King Shin Beefers or anyone else even remotely interested in going to Berlin for the Worlds this year need to follow this link and fill out the survey of interest.

http://leagueofbikepolo.com/whbpc2010/survey

There is only room for 48 teams at the tournament, and the organizers are trying to gauge how many slots to set aside for Americans.

Deadline is Friday!

Ben said...

When we win North Americans, we automatically get to go to worlds, right?

Ben said...

I signed KSB up as "maybe" attending...just to be safe.

Lucky said...

Thanks, club rep!

In other news: I am for sure driving those people who want to leave St Louis Saturday morning (9am) and come back Saturday night. So far it's me and 'Chovy. Room for 1-2 more.

Ben said...

Ps. If anyone else thinks they'd want to go to Berlin in August, speak up or register. The deadline is March 5.

They're just getting an idea of who is interested...You're not obligated to go if you let them know you're considering attending.

Pss. It sounds like Polo Spring Break was kind of a bust. I'm glad none of us wasted our time dragging ourselves down there.

STL BIKE POLO said...

Hey Nerds,

Jen and I are in for Off Broadway Friday night for sure. We scored free tickets.

STL BIKE POLO said...

it's looking less and less likely that i'll be able to go to colombia this weekend. We'll see, but as of now I don't think I'll be riding a bike in 4 days.

I will have a bunch of coroplast if someone wants to take it with them.

King stink said...
BEN I'm definatly going to Berlin reguardless of our kicking north American ass. If you guys wana make a trip of it I have family and my lovely girl about 4 hours from Berlin. There all so welcoming to anyone who wants to stay. I'm trying to get a work visa so I can do there indefinatly.

Julia, I'm feeling out my ankle. Woke up in pain today so idono if I'm in for sure. May just go for fun.

Ben said...

Very tempting. I've never been to Europe. I'm definitely keeping that option open.

Training Day said...

This should be you if you want to win worlds...

I will not be playing polo tonight.

PARTY TIP: There's every reason why today will be the WORST day we've ever had.

STL BIKE POLO said...

I'm going this weekend. Even if I can't play I've got a pile of coroplast to sell. My jeep is getting detailed friday so I'll try to get Jen to agree to me driving it.

toph said...

so, will i be able to come and get your lights? if we dont have lights, everyone will drop off like they did last wednsday.

Anchovy said...

No nick, no lights, no polo

Evannn said...

I've got 2 lights that I can bring. Not sure if that's enough, but it can't hurt.

Anonymous said...

i have extension cords that I can bring.
-Patrick

negative nancy said...

anchovy. dont rain on my polo parade. we have two lights, plus the one at my parents house. and extension cords. send out the text!

Ben said...

No Nick No Polo.

Nick is Polo.

Polo without Nick is like day without sun.

Anchovy said...

Ok. Ok. Things are shaping up, looks
like some polo will be happenin' ..6:00 it is.

Francis said...

Hey, does anyone have one wheel worth of coroplast I can buy from them? If so, please bring it tonight.

-Francis

STL BIKE POLO said...

francis-
I bought 20 wheels worth of coroplast yesterday. I have to cut it down to size. I still can't ride a bike so i won't be there tonight. Are you going to Columbia this weekend? you should. it will be fun. and i'll be there with a pile 'o' plastic.

-Trent

Anonymous said...

i just found some bungee cords for the lights, ill bring them too. -Patrick

Toph. said...

the next game section says we arent playing tonight? can someone confirm this before i leave my house or call me and let me know.

STL BIKE POLO said...

twitter feed is gone. in its place is a recent comments gadget. i think this'll work better, you're all still talking about the next game in the comments anyways.

STL BIKE POLO said...

Lucky,

Still no calendar gadget but I did add a Cute Puppy of the day under the contributors list!

-Trent

Eugene said...

Trent, we need to link up so I can get some coro-plast from you for wheel covers, and I was wondering if you did those vinyl cutouts.

If there is polo Sunday, I will be there.

No dice on Saturday, I have to work.

Andrew W.K. said...

PARTY TIP: Look up AND down. Look left AND right. Look inside, then out. Look all over the place! And most of all, SEE...

Francis said...

Trent, I just got scheduled to work on Saturday night so I am not going to be able to go to Columbia. I'll probably just try to drop by N&F some time so that I have a cover in time for Sunday.

STL BIKE POLO said...

RJ sign supply is cheaper than N&F. I have a bunch at my house you could stop by and get a set if you want to.

phone - (563) FIVE 7 ZERO - SIX 8 FOUR 5

STL BIKE POLO said...

Eugene - I really don't have any vinyl right now. I have focused my vinyl purchases on heat transfer material for shirts. I'll cut those faces for you as soon as I have some vinyl.

-Trent

Lucky said...

Francis; what time do you have to work Saturday night? We've got a car coming back not too long after sundown.

Francis said...

I'm supposed to be there around 3. I'm sure I could push it back a little, but I don't think I could wait until after dark since that wouldn't be till about 6.
