Host club: 
Calgary Bike Polo
Contact info: 
justin@calgarybikepolo.com
Court size: 
Still planning but looks like we may have 3 courts this year, One indoors. All large - cause that's how we roll in Calgary.

Calgary will be hosting their 3rd annual Polo Tournament on the first weekend of the Calgary Stampede again. It is the Ramsay Bowl you know and love, only the name has changed. I will update this post as details become available, but if you want to mark your calendar early, this will be the weekend!! *** please note it was originally posted as the 16 - 18th but it has officially been moved to accomadate the North Americans in Madison this year.

Location

2233 5th ave NW
Calgary, AB
Canada

Signed up

$5000 cash prize this time?????

polo polo polo polo!!!! wooooooooo!!

i think a better prize would be an STD and a divorce. Seems to be the "in" things to get in Calgary during the Stampede - or so the stats say.

times fucking ten!

see you there again, calgary knows how to throw down.

count it! the bills that is.

We have to figure out how to shift the date to just before North Americans.. then people can come to 2010 "Ramsay bowl"..and drive everyone down to North Americans via a polo bus or something...

For the lulz.

First - I so badly want to attend this. My funds are stretched. Putting myself on the market for this one.

Second - is this a permanent name change for the tourney? Cause:

"Ramsey Bowl"

"Area 51 Bowl."

Just saying.

My guess is that they have a title sponsorship now. Justin was toying with the idea last year and indicated that the name might change. Justin: Confirmative or Denyinator?

MMMMMBOP

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

Yes confirmed ...Title sponsor is in place they hand over the cash and get the title ...its gonna be a gooder this year ... now time for beer and ski pole sponsors ...we just might be getting good at this stuff ..

...BallAholics...Multiple Scoregasms...Thundercock...

Area 51 is that nightclub where we danced to metal and the doorman told me to "get fucked you dirty whore fucker" right?

Best. Sponsor. Ever. (Short of Lucky 13 in NYC sponsoring a tourney)

MMMMMBOP

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

He didn't have to look at you very long did he?

Love you baby.

Is Area 51 a bike brand?

Its a custom fab shop .. they did the fancy trophies last year for us ... speaking of that .. is anyone really that interested in more Velocity rims this year?.. I do a lot of the sponsorship stuff and I know its a pretty typical prize now days .... or should we get a local escort agency sponsorship and have pretty girls to hand out for the night...hmmmm

...BallAholics...Multiple Scoregasms...Thundercock...

and pretty guys too. in fact if you only can get one gender get the guys, more people in the world prefer having sex with guys than they do with girls.

Bruno?

...BallAholics...Multiple Scoregasms...Thundercock...

i'd say the world and bike polo are markedly different in that aspect.

You should come out this year for sure!! I'll save you a good spot at my house before it fills up even.

is it going to be at the same place this year cory

two asshole's don't make it right"

Yep I do believe so .. unless we get a indoor/outdoor venue we have been looking into with full locker rooms and showers and everyone just camps out on the court for the weekend .... if we do move it to another court .. don't worry it will only be be a better venue ..

Have you ever left Calgary feeling disappointed?

...BallAholics...Multiple Scoregasms...Thundercock...

I have. But it wasn't polo related.

i'm thinking about this. heard Calgary is a sick host.

Hey paul me too! Let's play together

x2, there's a 50/50 chance I'll be coming out to this as well.

I like your polo.

calgary is the shit, you have not seen a better hosted tournament. great weather (warm and dry), great people, 18 year-old drinking age, the stampede timing is awesome, top-level competition, and when here you are really just a few mountain ranges away from cascadia for more pre- or post-area-51 action.

calgary takes hosting seriously, mark this one down as a 'must'.

Are these dates confirmed? I think we are road tripping it!

dates are now confirmed July 9 - 11 (first weekend of Stampede.

justin,
is the Calgary crew going to caravan to Madison following the tournament formerly known as Ramsay? if so, can i ride with you? i want to come back this year.

well its almost 1500 miles, so I'm probably going to look into flying, but who knows...if we do drive I'm sure we could find a spot for you.

broberts, get in touch with me. i may still be driving.

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

tight. white snake for 1500 miles. can't wait.

You can bring your tapes if you want but I will be playing nothing but Trooper.

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

what happened to winger?

In terms of the hipness of my car: Winger is soooooo 2009.

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

I'll be nice and let you win it and walk away with some nice gas money!!..
.. I can deal with second place ...

Well I'd like to say the dates are confirmed. I'm just trying to figure that out myself actually. It would be for sure if it wasn't for the fact that the Madison guys are thinking about the same dates for North Americans. I'll move it for them if I have to, but I wish they'd decide soon, I'd like to know. If we move it it will be the week earlier probably. 1st weekend of the Stampede.

stoked about this, gonna be a good one, is the polo bus for real?

LONDON>>>EVBP>>>LONDON

The polo bus IS real ... we just don't own it yet ...

Bird of prey are not advised to ride in this ... the wolves are hungry...

I'll been needing some Wild-rose alliance wheel covers for this tournament.

a little update....we have confirmed space for the tournament already, but in our neverending quest to make things better I'm looking into an even better location....picture last year, but times 2....

12 lights per court!!
..This place gives me a chubby ..

2 courts side by, with lights...nice...gives me a polo woody as well, can't wait.......
sean carter, blue, got a team yet guys? wanna work some magic again? no hurry.
Been practising fellas so my game should be greatly improved. Gone from playing once a month or so to weekly!
In case sean and blue have already made arrangements, I'm interested in playing with some new people, out of towners, looking for good times on and off the court, etc.
Slayers Paradise, looking for a third for this one?

Just click on the link

Thanks chris...

It's official, Those courts are good to go. I just got the OK. (2233 5th ave NW is my house, if you click on that link you'll see the courts.) There will be pickup on the Friday Either at Knob Hill where the tourney was last year, or at our other new courts which are two blocks from my house....probably there since there are two courts there.) Then Saturday & Sunday will be at the courts in Canyon Meadows...I can't wait, those courts are sweet!!

.

Can't wait... the new courts look good .. that was the only downside to last year... the 2nd court... see you in July!

I also don't care what time of day or how much fireball is consumed. I actually encourage it in the morning.

carve. smash. eat shit.

I'm really hoping to drive down.. I have planned to take a week off after area 51 bowl.... if I buy a new honda element its a sure thing ... hope to figure this shyte out in the next month ...

i want to take at least a week polocation beginning in calgary. if you could give me a ride to madison, that would be the deciding factor of whether i do it or not. i'm so stoked on this. let me know if anyone can help me out. oh, and tell trevor to hit me back!

---------------------------
carve. smash. eat shit.

Your bed will be ready and a ride from the airport will be here for yah. As for NA I am flying down because I cant take anymore time off since my weddding is the weekend after. As far as a team goes we could find a local 3rd somthing, I have not made a team yet and not sure whats up with my last years team. or pack Will in your suitcase and the we have athird.... just a thought.

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

Yep still no new vehicle as of yet ... I would love to drive but looks like a few of us might be flying down now ...

I'm driving from Calgary to Milwaukee then to Madison, anybody want a ride? It's going to be a cheap way to get there!

I like your polo.

Check yer email.

Yes. When are you leaving for Madison?

Hey All

For those of you who will be in town on the Friday night before the tourney starts - my shop is hosting a fun night ride. Details are here -

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Calgary-AB/Bikebike-Bike-Shop-Calgary/164831463348?v=app_2344061033#!/event.php?eid=123411881024761&index=1

The ride is very mellow so polo bikes would be fine if that is all you have. Meet at BikeBike at 830pm and we'll try and get going around 9pm.

www.bikebike.ca

or, there's pickup polo at the Hillhurst courts....but maybe when it's dark.....when's the ride leaving Sean?

Hey folks,
Tom and I just lost our third. We are looking for a thrid. We'll be in town to throw the ball around on Friday.
Get in touch!

It's on Jackhole. Count it! Count it! Count it! Count it! Count it!

Okay catfish, I'm going to move my mouth like this...

Final was awesome! East van b team takin it to Calgary! Thanks Justin and heather and the rest of Calgary bp. Zack I loved playing with you. We will do it again. Big special shout out to mamma and papa Frey. They kept us in good shape throughout the tourney and kept EVERYONE dry on the first day. Much love. Rory: two more big ones!

Ya thanks to everyone who came out, I had a great weekend, and I'm almost recovered now....other than a bit of rain on Saturday and having to shop vac water off the courts a bit, I don't think anything could have gone much smoother. A big thanks to all our sponsors and volunteers that help make it happen too. We kept costs for participants to a minimum this year with a $5 entry fee, and free beef on a bun, and still managed to give away even more prizes than previous years, including three complete bikes, and a custom handbuilt frame & fork. See you all in a couple days in Madison!!!

anybody take any photos they want to share?

Calgary, you are the best. It just doesn't get any better than screwing the stampede because bike polo there is so much better.
