TEAM CAPTAINS: If you registered your team, you are responsible for being the main contact person for your team, and also responsible for relaying all future information and correspondence to your other teammates. This is important because we will be sending you electronic information packets about the tournament (rules, maps, housing information, etc.) as we get closer to the date of the tournament.

Hooray! Can't wait, Lex. See you in a bit.

Bike Polo Ronin

That poster is hot. Can't wait to return to Lexington... ya'll are great hosts

we'll still call it the 9th's fyi

I was wondering about that... why forget about 1-8? I can understand the midwests in spring be labeled as one. The tourney in the fall is a continuation from previous years.

No one's forgotten anything, but there's been one every spring and fall for 4 years. It's time to take this tradition out behind the woodshed.

oh, we won't ;)

Because this will be less confusing in the long run if people, in fact, want to start having regional qualifying tournaments for bigger ones like NA's and Worlds. If and when that actually starts happening (and the Midwest is big enough to start setting the standard), there will be one regional qualifying championship (The 'Champeenships' of past years) and one "Open" that is more relaxed and open to whoever wants to come.

{}------- lexington -------{}

i be that.

YAY! Can't wait to see you all again, missing you bad. I think we are staying with Rozzi again.

...those days are over.

JUST KIDDING!

Too late sweetheart, I'm taken. you should come anyway.

Registration will open up at some point tomorrow, Oct. 1st. I just posted some important pre-registration info above... Please read!

{}------- lexington -------{}

I am looking for a team or to fill a spot on a team. Anyone else still looking?

Midwest is best!!

sorry everyone, the registration opening date got pushed to tomorrow (Oct. 2nd) because of some unforeseen PayPal technicalities... looks like it will be tomorrow instead, so we will extend the cutoff date accordingly. Sorry for any inconvenience.

WOOO TRAVELING POLO!!! Maby i should bring my big stupid tires just for the hell of it

Registration is now open. See top of the page for the link.

Lexington Bike Polo OG - Retired (Still show up and heckle though)

What's registration looking like? I still don't have a team and don't want to miss registration due to no teammates. Are there any stragglers from Lex?

Midwest is best!!

There's definitely a few free agents from Bloomington. I''ll put the word out at pickup tonight.

i think there will be at least one from a2, maybe two. i'll send 'em this way.

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

Thanks guys! Nico from PGH and I are teaming up and need a third. He is going to ask someone else from PGH tomorrow, but if that falls through we may still be looking.

Midwest is best!!

I'm still teamless at the moment, so let me know please.

I'm a big wad of bloody hot damnation

You're our third, then. : ) I'm going to register us today at some point. Any ideas on team names?

Midwest is best!!

Totally Awesome Blitzkrieg
Blindside Banzai Kamikaze

Team names with alliteration are fun.

I'm a big wad of bloody hot damnation

Still got some free agents down there?

Was this post directed at me? If so, yes.

that was directed at you. I need a team, you need a team. Let's discuss.

regisered. kc/dc collabo will make you think you shut us out, but then we'll score. with seconds left.

15 teams registered so far in the first 48 hours.

{}------- lexington -------{}

DON'T HATE THE SLAYER, HATE THE GAME! We're reg'd.

Win if you can, lose if you must, but always cheat.

If you're not cheating, you're not trying hard enough.

....Or at least bring a Steelers flag to burn.

If you can dream it, you can do it!

watch it buddy. them are fightin' words

"I won't tell anyone you have splinters in your lips if you don't tell anyone I have a wooden cock."

Also, keep in mind, we drink like real boys and girls here in Lex, so you all you kids leave those sugary energy beers at home in the corner stores where they belong.

{}------- lexington -------{}

I like my sweet flavors and bright colors. I will not come to the dark side. May the Fours be with you.

We'll make sure to add plenty of food coloring and sugar to any bourbon we might give you.

Lexington Bike Polo OG - Retired (Still show up and heckle though)

Just make sure it's not in a mason jar. I made that mistake last time and we all remember what happened (besides me)

That was the Dark Side, Pete. You stepped into it. Or stepped in it, or something.

{}------- lexington -------{}

Or flying elbowed it from the third rope.

Retired.

the dark side was poured on your back and you swam through it

this sounds like a time machine that i found once, it was in the form of a bottle of wild turkey. I apparently traveled ten hours into the future and woke up with no pants on my coutch. i think the pants were the catalist for the time machine to start, i have no desire to repeat the experiment, so we may never know.

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

"think the pants were the catalist for the time machine to start ..."

Simple solution: leave the pants at home.

You'll see. Unless you drilled out your eyes because they were too heavy.

the only polo "trend" we want you to bring to Lexington is that of slaying.

{}------- lexington -------{}

I want to make note, that the beer that I brewed for NA's (which was not consumed there) will be at Midwests this year!!

Midwest is best!!

Sweet, sweet homebrew.

Bike Polo Ronin

Just want to remind folks to please follow the links on the pages you get redirected to after you pay with PayPal. This is important. When you pay, it should kick you over to lexingtonbikepolo where you have to complete your team's registration info before you show up on the official roster.

{}------- lexington -------{}

Cardinal,
We reg'ed for this yet?

SQUAD UP!

no but will take care of it tonight

Ifuckinglovepolo

oh boy regestration is filling up quick. open for three days and there are 21 teams. wow

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

This lefty needs a team

I'm still a free agent! thoughts?

Hope you get someone! I just about offered but then saw I was picked up a few post up.

I'm a big wad of bloody hot damnation

Half the spots are already filled.

{}------- lexington -------{}

Stoked.

huge LOL at the team name from ATX that just registered- "Bieber Boys"

x2! Haha! Awesome.

Midwest is best!!

COUNT IT! HAHAHAHA

Fuck off

:D

Fuck off

I'll talk to our free agents in Minneapolis tonight and see who wants to come to Lex too.

thinking about coming to this!!!!
i would be considered a free agent.

and i'm only going to drink meg's beer. i've been wanting this beer for far too long now.
=]

Awww thanks girl! If I knew you were coming I totally would have played with you!

Midwest is best!!

it's all good lady. nothing set in stone. looking at how to get there from philly.
we'll see who would be willing to play with me and go from there!
but i'll see you in austin!!!!!

I'm working on getting my team together, let me know if you're going to make it. I'd love to play with you lady!

16 spots til the Open is closed!

Can I go back and change/fill in info once I have teammates? I just registered a team.

hey Drew, it's not that big a deal if you don't have your teammates lined up just yet. We don't have it set up to change the public info on the fly - sorry. The only thing people will be able to publicly see before the tournament is your team name, and what city you're from. The only important thing for you is that you share whatever info we send along to you with the rest of your team once you get that together.

{}------- lexington -------{}

Sounds good, thanks.

Cleveland's winning it. More specifically, the Flying Guillotines. Death and Destruction Yeah, that's what's going down.

Besides that, we'll out-party anyone.
AND I'm going to burn the LIME III tape.

You guys could be called the Airborne Fucking Paper Shredders for all I fucking care... you'll be lucky if you make it to your first game. I challenge you to a party show down on Friday night. PGH is staying with Mike. Make sure that you are crawling distance from there so that once we're done partying you under the table, you can find your way home through all the tears on your hands and knees, Kung Fu Hustle.

did cleveland get party challenged again?

bring our flag too!

Speaking of flags, I have DC's. We shall play you in a grudge/cuddle match for it.

flag? what flag?

All of LEX is within crawling distance. We will own you, sir.

Don't talk about it. Be about it! I hope someone documents this Cleveland PGH party-off so that yinz 'Burgers can see just how out of your league we are once your nap time is over. If I recall correctly, Lomax, You had to be woken up to face us for a grudge match in STL. Oh and then we beat you 8 to 1. Suck it nerds!

If you can dream it, you can do it!

Bring your flag Republik...we shall capture it. After which we will ensnare it in your drive-train as you feebly attempt a break away at ramming speed Once you've been launched over your bars then Pittsburgh shall stomp on y our mangled shit pile of a polo bike, chugging Buffalo Trace...then spitting some into your bloody open woooooooooouuuuunds. That's right Cleveland. Better bring your Rooster.

...those days are over.

More importantly Cleveland, bring your watch. And eat breakfest before the tournament starts. At least twice in the past year I've witnessed Cleveland get DQ'd from a tournament match for failing to show up on time.

They can't tell time. They need a nanny.

...those days are over.

JUST KIDDING!

We do what we want, when we want. Hamburger, who's bikes are you callin' out? Last time you played in Cleveland, you were the only person I saw leave the court due to a bike failure in which we graciously fixed for you. And Brad, that happened once and I'm surprised that Jon "sneaky-snake" Lomax didn't just sub in uninvited like he always does. Go snake some poop out of a toilet and leave the partying to Cleveland.

If you can dream it, you can do it!

What b? My baby had it's rear wheel taco'd by a Bobel goon who decided he was going to go hard on me while I was delicately playing the ball off your jank fence on your jank rutted court that would serve better as a putt putt course. Your damn goals are as small as a putter's hole anyway...Oh and your collective Cleveland "we" should justly refer to Drunk ass Zak who by some miracle fixed it...don't you dare steal this man's deed. I can't wait to slay you and your goons. Bring the flag.

...those days are over.

JUST KIDDING!

Aww.. I'm sorry you aren't able to score on our small goals. I bet you like bumper bowling too.

If you can dream it, you can do it!

Only 10 spots left as of 10/7!

{}------- lexington -------{}

Pit be rolling deep. Is that 4 completely Pittsburgh teams?

Four pure-bred Pittsburgh teams, with three others having a Pittsburgh player. This is our way of guaranteeing that someone will finish in the top 42.

Sweet! Two Minneapolis teams just registered this morning so now we got 4 all Minneapolis teams too.

Last call! 2 spots left...

i payed but didn't get redirected to regristration....so I e-mailed lexington. I better have a spot!!!

Anyone looking for a free agent?

Hahahahahahahaha.

thoughtyouknew.us

Talk to charlie/omar from chi, i believe they still need a third!

Dana from Dayton is a free agent. Please contact me. We have gotten 3rd place at the last few Lexington events. Strength - running my mouth. Weakness - waiting to run my mouth again.

Registration is closed. Sorry if you missed out... we had spots for 48 teams, and they were filled within one week. We will not be adding extra teams on the weekend of the tournament, so please, if your team has not registered, do not show up expecting to get in at the last minute.

If we have any cancellations a couple days out from the tournament, we will put the word out here, and even then, it will be first-come, first-serve.

{}------- lexington -------{}

Bummer! I really wanted to come to this. So if anyone is looking for a third, let me know!

there will be a bunch of pick up so please show up expecting a fun week/end of polo and partying. we want everyone to experience the love Lexington has to give.

sorry for all of you who did not get in, this has to be a record for filling almost 50 spots in less than a week!!

Ifuckinglovepolo

this is going to be amazing. i've got a feeling Louisville will have it's ass kicked like never before, but that's totally okay. we just go to tournaments for the beer anyhow.

talk shit and burn bridges

...anybody need a defense/assist man?

It's Buck Rodgers Time!

i'm available

me too

- Beaver Boys * Milwaukee Bike Polo Club -

Fuck so how many ringers did not get in?

Ifuckinglovepolo

joe you really dropped the ball cuz now the van is full. your gonna have to ride the megabus there

whoa- no Beavers?

2/3 of the Beavers are on other mixed Midwest teams, Zach. Mixing things up!

{}------- lexington -------{}

No Machine Politics either. There will however be about 3 or 4 slayer teams though.

Midwest is best!!

so it really is an open tournament then?

actually, now it is closed :)

{}------- lexington -------{}

booo, so no biebers against beavers? :(

Fuck off

email us at lexbikepolo@gmail if you want to get on a waiting list in case a team has to cancel for whatever reason. I don't see too many teams canceling, but it's worth a shot. There is already a team from Madison and a team from Columbus in line for any spots that might open up.

Also, team captains - there were a lot of blank spots on the team rosters, so if you're still looking for players to round out your team, consider contacting some of the people here on the forums who are looking to join a team.

you should set up a poll and let the people vote for which team gets the 49th spot

daniel: you, alexis, and i? most popular

babylon: let go jah jah children

yeah great but no not really

buy me out? We can talk numbers off record if you'd like.

most popular for sure.

haha hatin' ass pete

Ifuckinglovepolo

I don't think anyone expected it would fill up so fast. Again, our apologies for those who did not make it in on time.

{}------- lexington -------{}

You know you don't take bike polo serious enough when: you don't register for a big tournament within the week! count it!

Fuck off

x2!!

Midwest is best!!

Don't apologize. You guys let everyone know well in advance when you were going to put up registration. People who wanted to play in this tournament should have had their shit together well in advance. The Midwests have been one of the big tournaments to play at and there are only a limited number of spots due to limited courts. Lex, I'm sure you're going to do an amazing job hosting!!

Midwest is best!!

Everything you just said is a true statement, BUT this tournament is not "the midwests" in the way that you are implying

- Beaver Boys * Milwaukee Bike Polo Club -

Couple of Madison folks looking for a 3rd...let me know if you are looking for a team!

ogad! there's a shit storm brewin over here...

Portland United
www.eighthinch.com

So who's gonna throw around some trash? who is going to take this with all the mixed up squads?

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

each team on the podium will have at least one player from MKE on it

ha-

Fuck off

I was going to say the same thing about PGH, but none of you matched up with us. Looks like we've found our nemesis

if a PGH player had a MKE player on any of their teams then they'd have a shot at top 10. until then you all can hang out in mediocrityville....

The only thing standing between Pittsburgh and the top 10 is Pittsburgh itself. As long as we don't get sabotaged into some all PGH cluster of the Sunday bracket, I'm guaranteeing at least one representative from PGH in the top 5 and three in the top 10. Sleep on us all you want, just keep some beer cold for us while you're on the sidelines taking notes.

careful, he might lose his temper and headbutt you.

HAHAHA count that!

Austin is not that good, so we'll see what happens with us!

Fuck off

damn where is that x2 button at!

I'll let the outcome of the tourney be the judge :)

Fuck off

pray to who the fuck gives a shit, Jake head butts the bloated she wolf that Pittsburgh is bringing.

according to Pittsburgh, it's you guys who're bringing the bloated she-wolf... unless she has to stay at home and fold his laundry.

Not to worry brother, there will be plenty of bloated beasts to satisfy your appetite.

maybe if it's a he-wolf... i'm into dudes, hewitt. show me a dick and i'll suck it. let's make out.

To hell with headbuttin':

http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F&gl=US#/watch?xl=xl_blazer&v=d...

I like your polo.

uh, well good luck. this won't be a walk in the park to get to Sunday. hope you've been taking your steroids, cause you'll need 'em. three in the top 10 huh? we'll see. you might want to bring your notepad along as well.

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

I remember when poloists from Michigan would just talk and talk and talk and never show up to tourneys.

that changed?

ha, touche. I don't think you'll have to worry about our club showing, we'll be there with our pink slips and unemployment checks. Sven you've got one of the no show Michigan folks playing for your club, better hope he slows up, he probably will, hungover or a little drunk if i know Nick.

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

Nick formerly of Ann Arbor Polo now of Minneapolis Polo has a new name. Nick Faceplant.

You'll have to ask him about his 20+ stitches a curb in Nordeast made him get.

And he's on one of the four all MPLS teams coming.

I spoke to him right after it happened, the part about the eastern european driving him to the ER in a BMW is the best part. When I talked to him on his birthday they had just taken the stiches out and i was happy to hear he was mending well.

Formerly my ass, check the tattoo on his shoulder, that ain't Minnesota.

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

I just want you to know that two polo players, Landon and Jameson, spent SIX hours in the ER from 12am to 6am making sure our new guy was OK. As well as riding to and shuttling Nick's parked car around so it wouldn't get a ticket

Six fucking hours. Shitty hospital aside, I'm so proud of those two. Class acts.

And now Nick isn't coming. Says he has to "work" or something. Silly!

I'll be drinking my bourbon...liquid courage! I'm leaving my notepad at home.

I will walk in the park to get to Sunday.

Have you seen how many teams have people from Pittsburgh on 'em? 4 full teams and 3 mixers. If we don't make the top 10, it's fixed! Or we got Four'd.

its not quantity its quality Jon.

and pretty much you need NOT TO SUCK!

Fuck off

My teammates and I will deliver, count on it.

You might want to see if Crosby and Malkin can play for you, i think you'll need them to get what your after.

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

Hahaha

I'd rather live in mediocrityville eating humble pie than arroganttown sucking the teats of a bloated she wolf

we stackin' dough!

...those days are over.

JUST KIDDING!

i predict sunday's bracket will be entirely filled with unmixed como teams.

Chris, notice you're no longer a COMO player, chicago's got its claws into you. Unmixed no more.

there are also only 3 teams registered from como. technicalities, i say. mere hurdles.

wouldn't bet on it. My team is registered to get drunk and cheat. I do both very well.

how many teammates do you have now?

n+1

praying to god not to be knocked out of this one by a couple of 13 year olds

I think the Shit Show would be willing to check some 13 year olds which I part of why I'm not playing with them, I was afraid of hurting them the entire game

oh and god doesn't exist, would you like to argue on the internet about it?

more than will be on your bench team

i'm pulling for Louisville to get a solid 47th out of all this... although we'll settle for DFL and beer.

count it!

talk shit and burn bridges

What size will courts and goals be?

x2!! Are we playing on your regular pick up courts?

Midwest is best!!

Yes we are playing on our 2 pick up courts, A and B are 120'x85' and the 3rd is going to be as close to that as we can make it the wood is coming down form Madison.

Goals are going to be 6'x3' all three the same nets, with the 3rd pair being sold at the and of the weekend

Ifuckinglovepolo

lex is finally switching to nets! amen.

shouldn't the third pair be a prize?

should be mvp or something! or maybe a shoot-out!

Fuck off

The goals are going to be made of steel, so they'll be heavy. We're going off the dimensions of some of the more recent, polo-specific designs, but we're just building these to last so we don't have to fuck with piecing them back together every time they take a hit. We haven't had much luck with PVC goals here in Lex. Tried 'em, didn't like 'em.

So, like we said, we're building three sets, keeping two, and the third will probably be up for whichever city wants to purchase them and haul them back home. They'll be nice goals, regardless.

{}------- lexington -------{}

you gonna MIG weld 'em? Stick? TIG? Gas!? or bolt them together?

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

Partially welded with Fastening hardware would be ideal for ease of transport etc...

I guess you could braze 'em too.

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

Hey Lex - How should I get to the party from the airport? Can I wrench a ride from one of youse? Im landing around 10pm friday night...

MinneaPOLOgasm -----------[] ((((O

Tell you what... can you shoot us an email to lexbikepolo at gmail? I'll use that to forward onto anyone who might be freed up to make a run out to the airport. As specific as you can get with your itinerary would be very helpful.

Anyone else flying in to Lex?

{}------- lexington -------{}

Lex has an airport?

Yep, Blue Grass Airport (LEX).

Alot of the flights connect through cincinnati, though.

Kentucky is in the Midwest? I would ask Lucky before advertising that.

MALICE for the people.

You know how many people would love to have Lexington in their region? Lots.

But I'm sure you know that and are just making fun of Lucky.

Lucky and I have a longstanding dispute over the boundaries of the Midwest. He is defending the exclusionary line.

MALICE for the people.

It's the Midwest Empire. We are working on getting Europe to be included in the new boundaries. We already have Paris.

2nd grade, yo. Big, table sized map of all the states and their major cities and industries with wooden cut-out-state-shapes that you fit together over the map. North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma are the Great Plains states. Not the Midwest. No cities over 1,000,000 population, no heavy industry (can't have a rust belt without steel mills), totally different and great for their own reasons.

You can't argue with my 2nd grade credentials. Them's bonafide, yo.

Retired.

I think that was called a "war room", Lucky. Were there lots of guys standing around smoking cigars and pushing little toy planes and ships around with long sticks?

{}------- lexington -------{}

Oh how I miss my youthful days at Dr. Strangelove Grammar School...

Retired.

What Keith said... and also, the argument about what makes up the Midwest is at least 2 years too late.

Congrats Lexington, KY on electing an openly gay mayor!

Thanks, Sven! I used to work for Gray... he's a good guy, and I think he'll do a good job moving Lexington forward. This new mayor is closer to many of the people behind bike initiatives here too, so hopefully it will be good for bike polo, among other things.

Still, it's a bit hard to imagine how we also elected that teabagging fucknut, Rand Paul.

If anyone coming from Pittsburgh wants to pick me up some Stoney's on there way to lexington.That would be awesome. I am talking back rubs, dim lighting, smooth jazz, straight fucking awesome. Maybe some cherokee red or bbq bettis chips from giant eagle.

Could you guys get the whole spare key situation under control this time?

Haha!! Well, Charlie has somewhere to stay with a certain someone in Lex if he does get locked out.

mid fifties and rain? sounds like the tropics to me.

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

If somebody from C-bus doesn't step in by our Tues. nite pick-up, we will need a third.

Hey Lexington, What rule set will we be using?

Keep your standards low, and morale high.

Same as the NA's in Madison. Except, matching team shirts are optional.

{}------- lexington -------{}

I'm bringing one shirt of every color so I can confuse the teams that try to match.

Is there an itinerary somewhere for this weekend? Ya know with all the address for the parties, courts, and where to get the drugs

Should be up tomorrow.

I've added a link in the description above to www.lexingtonbikepolo.com. We have the schedule, rules, and other info listed on the site.

Hey, can you add the path from the hotel to the courts to the map? It’s not on the google/bing satellite views yet and I can see how/where we can cross the train tracks.

Also, are you all playing pick-up on Thursday night? We might come down super early....

There's a Chicago car load that's getting in on Wednesday.

Hey Eric, I've passed your request along to one of our players who is doing all the web stuff... so hopefully he can throw that map up there pretty quickly. Thanks for the tip.

Also, I have a feeling there will be pick-up every night between tomorrow and the tournament. A bunch of Chicago people are coming down tomorrow night.
