Sunday polo is happening at Mt. Pleasant Park at 2pm. The weather will be amazing. Bring some food and drinks and fun. Our dear friend Evan will be in attendance. It's sure to be a great afternoon.

Also, we are going to do a small collection for a deposit on a skating rink for a party. If you are interested in donating a little cash to help us secure our party place for a future shindig, please bring a little dough on Sunday. Anything you have to donate will be appreciated, recorded, and repaid.

See you Sunday!

PS - Thanks for Matt for organizing an awesome alley cat!

We're Going Sailing!

Let's get down to business. The float trip. The Missouri Bike Polo float trip. It's happening.

When should this happen? Summer is quickly coming to a close, and hard decisions need to be made soon!

After polo tonight, the CoMo crew called me and voiced their support for the float trip. Everyone is ready to go. Let's hammer-out the details St. Louis style (i.e. in the comments section of this post).

Hands in the center!

1st Wednesday of Month Noobie Night August 3rd, 2011!

To further our effort of growing our club, I propose we make the first Wednesday of every month Noobie Night. This could be a night where we encourage people to come out and experience bike polo. This includes less aggressive games, slower games, helping people get the hang of riding the bike and swinging a mallet. 

What are everyone's thoughts? If we move forward with this, the first night will be August 3rd 2011. 

I think we should draw up a flyer and hand out to bike shops, hang in bike shops, etc.

ISO: New Polo Players

Yesterday at polo we decided we we're going to need a new crop of players soon. We need more than 6 people showing up for polo days. It'd be nice to not have to guess if we'll have enough for a game on Wednesday nights and Sunday afternoons.

We determined the best way to find new people would be to play some low intensity games and invite the Saint Louis bike folks out. It will be nice to get a group of new folks on the court with each other for some low intensity games. It can be a bit intimidating for a first timer to get thrown on the rink with five people who've been playing for a couple of years.

Since everyone in the world (except Shin) has a Facebook account we decided to start a Saint Louis Bike Polo page. Go to Facebook and "Like" Saint Louis Bike Polo. Suggest that your friends do the same and maybe we'll round up a few fresh recruits.

Who agrees that our next team shirt should involve this image?

It's that time again. STL Bike Polo will be starting the week off right with a small Polo party at Mt. Pleasant Park. The fun and games will begin at 2PM. Show up on time and stay late! The weather is going to be great, and the polo is going to be even better.

On The Horizon...

Since STL is not making an appearance in Little Rock this coming weekend, the next tournament on the STL Bike Polo horizon is the Riverside Tournament in Lafayette, Indiana. A handful of people have expressed a little interest. I suggest you decide if you want to make the trip ASAP and start talking to potential teammates (talk to them on Wednesday at polo).

For anyone that does go to Lafayette, consider this:

As for normal STL Bike Polo action, Wednesday at 6pm we will be at Maplewood. Show up on time and shred. Our regular Sunday schedule will be 2pm until dark now that the sun is on its summer schedule.

Party hard!

Friday, March 11, 2011


Even Prince Henry Spits Beer! Lets celebrate that fact by playing polo on Saturday. 
Mt. Pleasant Noon.

Its going to be close to 60 out. LETS PLAY POLO! Lets drink beer, play polo, and BBQ. 

Charlie Hard!

Things to Consider...

It's supposed to rain this afternoon, and I don't know how much things will dry before Sunday. Regardless, everyone that has the strength to move after the 80-mile Cold Weather Ride should be playing polo on Sunday starting around 1PM. I'll let everyone debate the best place to play in the comments.

Also, our dear friends 1.5 hours West of us are having a Pull Out tournament on Saturday, March 19th. Make the trek to CoMo and experience playing in a tournament where the alcoholic beverage you pull from Floppy's mythical cooler determines your team for that day. If the rumors are true, there may be a coaster fight in a nearby bar after the tournament.

Finally, consider attending the Lafayette tournament on April 2nd. New players and veterans of the sport should have a good time. At the very least, I'm sure there's a good Purdue party to stumble into after the tournament.

Sunday is going to be a MESS! Therefore, Due to weather and scheduling conflicts Im hosting Bike Polo on Saturday 02/26/11. We will play at Mount Pleasant Park at NOON. Bring your game and mabe a bullet proof vest...

After The Thaw

Where are we playing polo Wednesday?

Monday, January 17, 2011

24 Hours of Partying!!

I'll be honest, I was not totally convinced that having a 2011 St. Louis Bike Polo Lock-In was a good idea. For me, the first lock in was a life changing experience.  By the end I had completely lost my capacity to speak, and mostly lost my desire to sleep. It was fun overload.

Lucky's idea was brilliantly conceived and flawlessly, while seemingly effortlessly executed. St. Louis Bike Polo showed the rest of the polo-verse what we are about. Having fun, applying energy and being inclusive. The people who showed up fell right in and, I would like to think,  everyone there had an amazing time. For me it was perfect.

So when it came time to think about planing a 2011 Lock-In, I was hesitant. They say lightning doesn't strike in the same place twice. I was afraid that anything less than perfection in 2011 would somehow take away from 2010. Thankfully, the rest of the club didn't share my reservations.

Ben took the reigns and did what St. Louis bike polo does best, started a blog. Then he secured the venue, tiny liquor bottles, pinata, small motorcycles, Mountain Dew, playground balls and tens of thousands of ounces of beer that it takes to make a bike polo lock-in a success. The people came. They played polo. They partied. They danced. They bled. They hit the kicker ramp. They smashed the Pinata. They earned merit badges. And they had a blast. Thanks to everyone involved.

Fuck lightning, We'll make our own.

psst... We're having a PARTY this weekend.

In case you haven't heard: This weekend we're having a 24 hour PARTY at the Skatium. There will be some some polo playing but I think most of us are just going to be there to eat pizza and look cool. Ben posted some details and crap HERE.

Bike Swap Sunday January 30th


The Bike Swap is coming up. This can be a good spot to find cheap parts. Some dudes have deals, some are there trying to get rich on their old junk. I'll be going.

Oh yeah, polo tonight (1/5/11). Maplewood. Be there.
