Don't worry, Dave. If it's not 100+ degrees, the tournament is postponed.

King said...

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! Anyone wanna play Sunday? After Mother's Day brunch and what snot. -Jake-

Rose said...

Francis and i are both maybes. Also, my bike is still broken, so if i do come out, I'm going to have to borrow again.

I can bring my turquoise colored bike. Prolly 3pm -Dave

nick said...

I'm in!

Anonymous said...

I wiped out while biking on Friday. I was planning on more icing and mending today, but I would head down to Mount P. to hang out. I'll bring my bike if Rose or anyone needs to borrow it and maybe I'll try to play a little polo.
-Patrick

King said...

POLO IS ON! 2p MOUNT P!!!

Rose said...

We're here. Jake's truck is here. There were detours getting to the park because of that bike race but the park is still accessible.

I'm planning on having a post-polo get together at my house after Sunday polo on May 19th. We can play foosball and swim in the pool. Anyone who wishes may spend the night. I have 2 guest mattresses that detach from a fold out couch, another couch that can be slept on plus various camping ground pads. I do have a fairly large driveway, but since there is no street parking if anyone can carpool that would rock. I'll have google map directions at Wednesday polo.

I'm out in West Virginia getting moonshine today, so no polo for me.

Yo dudes!

Look's like the Brentwood roller hockey rink is getting upgraded. It is out for bid now. The bid package includes replacing the existing boards. We need to figure out how to get the existing ones.

No polo tonight. Go see Andrew W.K. at the Firebird instead.

Philip said...

Polo today at 2. Who's in?

King said...

I can play

Rose said...

Francis and I are out.

Philip said...

Doesn't look like polo is happening.

King said...

Anyone wanna play today?

I'm having another after pool/foosball party following Sunday polo June 2nd. As before, bring a towel, carpool if you can, anyone can spend the night. Maybe we could play polo a little earlier than 2PM so that we have more daylight to swim? We can talk about it at Wednesday polo. -Patrick

Dave said...

I guess that is also your official " I'm backing out of the Masters Tournament" announcement? Well at least we almost tried.

Anonymous said...

Dave, if it helps you feel better, know that we'll still be getting Masters tournament shirts.

and I'll be at Wednesday polo around 6-6:30PM.

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking of postponing the 2nd pool party till next Sunday June 9th due to weather. Looks like the temperature this Sunday will only be mid 70's and Saturday's predicted storm will likely make the pool temporarily cloudy and might even fill it with fallen tree branches. Next week looks like it will get hotter and fairly dry. However, anyone is welcome to come over tonight after polo and swim/play foosball/pass out in the sauna, etc.

-Patrick

5D said...

I am out on polo tonight. Patrick, I will only swim in your cold ass pool if it is 90 degrees. I will whoop up on some suckers in foosball regardless of temperature.

Disc Golf Cave said...

Hello Polo friends. I am going to head down to the disc golf course in crystal city that is inside of a cave. looks pretty sweet. $5 per person, I have some extra discs. Open from 7pm to 12am on Fridays. I have high hopes to avoid the rain while still partying outside...ish. Holler if you want to join, you probably know my number by know. - Daver

I hate to write this, but I have to once again postpone the after polo pool party till next Sunday, June 16th, because this weekend my brother is having wood trim in our basement stained with oil based paint that gives off fumes. However, I'm definitely up for playing polo this Sunday.

-Patrick

Anonymous said...

Phil, if you haven't ordered that stuff yet I'd take some balls, lets say 5, and a nalgene (if they are really $2). Thanks!

Brian

Anonymous said...

Patrick,
We need more details as to why the pool party is canceled.

-Earthling

Anonymous said...

Postponed till next Sunday when the weather should be nicer anyway, not totally cancelled. My upstairs guest bathroom isn't working and I'd rather not have anyone inhaling paint fumes while using the bathrooms in the basement.

It will save us money on beer to play foosball with the fumes going

Rose said...

Francis and I are out today, got family stuff to do.

Anonymous said...

Anyone gonna play today?-Dave

Anonymous said...

Anyone is welcome to come over after Wednesday polo to swim, play foosball, eat pizza etc. If the court is overrun with hockey players like last time we can just head to my house. It might even be hot enough on Wednesday for Brian to swim.

-Patrick

David said...

Anyone want to try and get a 3x3 game of polo tonight? Maybe with a little pee jumping in the mix? I am in, even with the thought of playing Mt p if Mwood is busy. I'm available by 4pm. Heat stroke training at Mt.P?

Rose said...

I want to play! I should even be able to use my own bike tonight.

Dave, i might bring some new people along, can you please still bring your spare bike?

Philip said...

I'm in and so is Nathan, probably around 6:30.

Anonymous said...

Unfortunately I am out on polo tonight and Sunday, headed out of town tomorrow and I need to buy some stuff tonight. Have fun!

Brian

Rose said...

My two cousins just let me know that they're going to come tonight as well, so counting them and Francis, it looks like we're up to 8!

I'm in for Sunday polo at whatever time I hear polo is happening and maybe we could hang out afterwards

barney said...

Hey all,
I need to contact Jake in order for him to make some cool awards for another cool event that involves bicycles on a "bumpy" surface. Could you please let this mechanic who helped out at a couple of lock-ins know where and until when you all are playing. I'll stop by and I will even bring my cycling mechanic's toolbox for a little equipment love if you do.

@swikles (hint)

Hey dudes, Sam from Tree Bike Co wanted me to let you all know about a open house/sale he is having at Plan Nine Skatepark in the Mills Mall on Saturday. He said he'll have a bunch of stuff marked way down that might be good on a polo bike. Here are the details http://www.treebicycleco.com/tree-open-house/

I can't make polo tonight because I have, according to my doctor, a "really awful" case of strep throat and I would hate to infect someone else. I just started antibiotics an hour ago so I should be fine or at least in no way contagious by Sunday, so I'm looking forward to polo then. Have a good night y'all!

I just hope you know the main event has been changed to whiffle ball due to no one in STL plays bike polo. Also there is on site camping......ish. I mean if you get drunk and pass out in the field, you might not get mugged.

Anonymous said...

Is this tournament happening?!

if so where the schedule at!?

James

Rose said...

This thread is turning into a real bummer.

Tournament: yes, it will happen. Everything is in place for it, it will all be fine. St Louis teams will figure themselves out. Everyone calm down.

Housing: talked to Nick briefly tonight, we'll sort out housing on Wednesday. Kristine - you will be housed somewhere, email the heatstroke address (i think it's on lobp) and let then know when you're getting in. Also, if anyone feels like taking on the job of assigning housing, let Nick know.

Schedule: last year I think we started at 11 on Saturday, Mt. Pleasant Park (address on poster up there, or in one of the sections linked on the main page). Nick, if you have other ideas, please post the start time you had in mind. We usually meet up Friday night sometime, so again, any ideas for that, post away.

Let's have fun, guys!

x2 Rose!

Rose said...

Ha! So I'm blind, apparently (or maybe just on polo/rock-and-roll time) - poster says the start time is at 10:00am, not 11.
