Hey Jake, check out this thread on customizing old mtb frames for polo. It is on the dreaded league of bike polo web site, but it is free of the usual BS.

Rose said...

To the girl I told to look up polo when she was riding by Tower Grove and Shaw -

For real, you should come play with us, or at least check it out sometime. We're really nice, polo's really fun, we need more girls playing, and you ride like a polo player already.

Eva said...

Hey Club Rep! said...

NOVEMBER 3, 4

State vs. State was a lot of fun, but City based teams is where new format is headed. The Midwest differs from some of the other regions in that there are lots of cities with smaller polo scenes. That is why we are going with "club based" teams. Ideally, if a city can field a full roster, they should. If they can't, it's OK to combine cities into one club. The catch is that once a player plays for a club, they can only play for that club for the rest of the season (season starts post-worlds). Also, the general consensus has been that 9 is too many players per team. For this tournament, we are going with 7 active players and up to 2 alternates on the bench.

MIDWEST CLUB REPS: EMAIL THE ADDRESS ABOVE BY AUGUST 31 IF YOUR CITY IS INTERESTED!!

Details on format will be posted after the registration deadline.

SUMMARY:
Bench style tournament.
Club based teams.
Teams of 7 + 2 alternates.
Midwest.
Lexington.
Awesome.

Location

Lexington, KY

We played last Wednesday. I was really late cause of work. Maybe you were the first one there. Even if it doesn't rain any more today the court will still be very slick and dangerous tonight. I'd probably play anyway, but it just depends on if we can get six people out.

I would probably play also. I've got a pretty good sized squee-gee I can bring.

Nelly Busted said...

SIERRA BLANCA, Texas – Authorities say they found drugs and a gun on rapper Nelly's tour bus at a West Texas border checkpoint where several celebrities have been arrested.
Hudspeth County sheriff's officials said an initial search Wednesday night turned up small amounts of marijuana and heroin and a loaded gun. Authorities say a second search revealed a duffel bag with about 10 pounds of pot.
Officials say one of the occupants was arrested after admitting the drugs and gun belonged to him. Nelly and five others were released.
Previous drug-related arrests of celebrities at the checkpoint near Sierra Blanca included Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Fiona Apple and Armand Hammer.
A publicist for Nelly, whose birth name is Cornell Iral Haynes, didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
