Amazing! Well done Rose!

Rose said...

Hey dudes (and the girl)!

We got an interesting message on the ol' Facebook today:

"Hi. I'm a writer/photographer for St. Louis Magazine, and I've heard bike polo is a fun time. Interested in taking some fotos for a foto essay of the players that would run at stlmag.com,please. Would that be ok? Are u playing this Sunday at Mt.Pleasant Pk., please? Thanks much!
-Byron"


Please post ASAP if you are interested in participating in this/able to play on Sunday. This could be good for getting some more new players out. I told him I'd let him know what turnout/interest was looking like.

King said...

Sold

More info:

"The fotos would be introduced by a paragraf or 2 about the sport and how it's played. Each individual foto will not have a caption. I don't need to get anyone's name, either, the fotos will tell the story.It looks like a blast -- and a chance to test out my camera's high-speed capabilities!"

So far:
Rose
Francis
Jake
Toph

Let's get a few more!

I'm off all day. I would love to play earlier than later due to heat, but i'll play all day I suppose.-Dave

Rose said...

So knowing our timeliness, I told the photographer 3, but he's got to be somewhere at 4 and decided to postpone. He does still want to do a piece on bike polo, it'll just have to be another week. I can ask him for some possibilities and let you guys know.

King said...

Why 3? Why not just actually show up earlier? Disaster

Rose said...

I emailed before I saw any of this talk, and I spoke based on prior experience. Sorry.

King said...

All is well! Polo people?

Rose said...

We got a post on FB from a guy asking what time we play (I talked to him last week at the court). I'm willing to risk a five-person/bike night if it means getting someone new out.

King said...

I just found a perfectly good goal I. The alley. Has netting and everything. Anyone in the club want it? Otherwise it's going back in the trash! -Jake-
