Sunday Sunday Sunday

A little bird told me that some Como polo shredders will be in the Lou on Sunday. Where do we want to play? Will anyone be wearing tights? These questions and more will be answered.

Exhibition Games

I had some unannounced time off yesterday so I went and talked in person to the people I had been emailing about playing demo games at the Tour De Grove/Artcrank this weekend. Those people are, by the way, the owners of Big Shark and the Atomic Cowboy.

Big Shark would like it if we could play some games in Francis Park during the Gateway Cup for one day over labor day weekend. There is a boardless rink in the park. Just an asphalt pad with nets mounted in it. We talked about having high intensity demo games once an hour (or whatever) and pick up with us and spectators the rest of the time.

We would have to build boards, and probably bring extra bikes and equipment to pull this off. But we have all summer to plan for it.

Atomic Cowboy wants to know if we want to do our regular pick-up games one evening a month pretty much all summer along with their bike-in movie night series. We would be taking over Tallmage between Manchester and the alley behind the bar. Rough estimate is a court about 35-40' X 100-110'. For comparison, Lindenwood is 50' X 120'. He said he could keep the boards at the bar, and maybe New Belgium would help us out with some costs, seeing as they love the bikes.

Whaddya think?

I made some changes...

Playing hardcourt bike polo the way it's intended to be played earns your club some odd labels.

This is what everyone expects...Let's make sure we deliver.

Men In Tights...

CoMo polo. They don't know how to party, and they don't know how to dress.

I think our club is a pretty laid back club. I don't think STL Bike Polo has any club rules. Well, I guess, "don't be a dick" is the only rule to which we all adhere.

But I'd like to suggest another rule that our club should follow:

No male player representing STL shall ever wear tights. No exceptions.

We have never had anyone make this fashion misstep, and I would like to keep it that way. I insist that STL men remain men. And that means refusing to slip into skin-tight, stretchy tights.
Please do not embarrass our club like this poor gentleman(?) has done to CoMo Polo.
