We're going to mount it to the wall in a way that ensures it'll never be removed, but I think we should invest in armed guards that watch over the crest morning, noon, and night.

POLO SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!
12:00 NOON!!!

Rose said...

So great, Lucky! I didn't get a chance to see it close up last night, but it is way cool.

I'll be late tomorrow, but I'll be there.

Ben said...

I tried to go shovel Mt. Pleasant, but it's worse than I've ever seen it.

So if anyone wants to play polo on Sunday, we need to find a new location. Most likely a garage or warehouse. We have several places in mind.

i just emailed my last final paper for the semester and i've got full health, so i'm ready to get back to poloing asap. any decisions on location for tomorrow?

Alex B! said...

My buddy who wants to support the polo cause works at a warehouse in Clayton. He says the place could potentially be available for polo evenings and weekends. Apparently it's a big enough space, though it's not heated and there are an unknown number of pillars in the space.

I'm planning to go Monday or Tuesday to check it out. I'll take some pictures and post 'em up somewhere. If anyone else wants to come too just post a phone number and I can let you know before I go.

That thing is sweet. I wish I had a supply of good frames to make us all creations. The wheel base on that thing is pretty sweet. Whos making it?
I just finished the fabrication on my "fork-less" bike. It will be ridden tonight on the FIASCO!

zach-bloomington said...

Anyone remember the bmx mini-tall from the lex invite? i think it belonged to someone from Pittsburgh. thing had 20 inch wheels and a crazy turning radius but sat about as high as a normal bike...

Hey Alex, what's the word on your friend's warehouse?

King said...

Hey club!
That garage we played in at Forest Park CC is empty for the holiday break. Since schools out and no ones workin, if you want to play call me or post here. If we can get 6 let's play. Or go sledding!

Ben said...

I am down for sledding tomorrow afternoon! And every day there's snow on the ground after tomorrow.

Jon Rinehart said...

6 or sledding. Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow!

Ben said...

Jake, Lee, and I got some sick sledding action tonight. More to come in the days to come!

Connor said...

colin said...

Ben said...

Polo seems to be a bust. There weren't enough interested people.

But there will be sledding sometime tonight. Keep your eyes on the blog to see when and where we'll be breaking ourselves on steep, slick surfaces.

Ben said...

Sledding location suggestions?

Anonymous said...

Greenbriar Country Club...

Its killer!!!

Ben said...

Woah. I never thought about that, but you're right. We should go there.

PARTY HARD! said...

START/CONTINUE PARTYING!

King said...

POLO TOMORROW???

I'd like to play at either Maplewood or Forest Park garage.

Please call me if your planning on playing.

Ben said...

Charlie is in town tonight, and he wants fun...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eKu2eDgiac

...So we need a STATIC, DARKNESS PARTY or a Handlebar gathering for a little Missouri Bike Polo bonding.

Ben said...

Can someone drop by Maplewood and check out the rink's condition?

Please let us know what it looks like.

King said...

looks like rain all day ben. The Garage at Forest Park CC has lights and is covered.

If you want to play today please text Ben or I

Anchovy said...

I want to play, but think on a tues night there will be cars in there at FP.

Ben said...

Polo tonight at the Forest Park Community College parking garage. It's Christmas break, so it should be empty.

Ben said...

We'll need cones too. So steal a few if you see any on your way to the garage.

anchovy said...

OK see you there.
PS-Colin, i got a 32H mtn rim sitting here unbuilt if you want it.

Ben said...

Low of 38 degrees tonight...Somebody bring an orange ball!

Trent said...

I'll be there.

King said...

POLO 6PM FOREST PARK CC GARAGE!

BEEEEE THERE!

Ben said...

Wednesday the 12th of January we're going to Hidden Valley for College Night.

So instead of breaking yourself at polo, you can break yourself on a sheet of ice in Eureka, Missouri.

Connor said...

Merry fucking christmas!

nick said...

Does anyone know a good place to get wheels built, or someone who can build them?

Connor said...

Nick, I can lace the wheels and true them, I just don't have the parts to build wheels at my disposal anymore...anybody know of a job to fill the next 2 months that I'm laid off for?

Nick,
Mark at Ballwin Cycles builds wheels fast, If you tell him I sent you it'll probably be on the cheap side.

barney said...
