Hmm I've always wanted to visit Alaska... This is very tempting!


Best time of the year to visit.

I'm going to try my best to make this and make a little road trip out of it

wow, that's a tournament organiser's dream.

Games start at 3am ;)

Whoa, nice. It's a lock out.

We staying in Igloos?

Yeah and doing lines of coke off Sarah Palin's boner.

Bottles, if you're serious about this let me know. S'toon has been talking about some roadtrip polo next summer and Alaska is top of my list.

With our vacation time available at that time we'll have a limited amount so I think the plan is to fly in to Anchorage and just do some backcountry in Denali or one of the other parks.

How sure are you that this is going to be on the specified dates?

It's for sure that weekend. We might change the first day of the tourney to Friday since that's the day of the summer soltstice.

Man I wish I could make this! Think you can get Jon to swing me a military flight from the UK?!

I'll just fly you on my personal airplane.

ugh it's like 700 dollars. life sucks.


Legalize Hand Throws - 2014

love it! i will be flying in and out of whitehorse then driving a rental. who wants to split some gas?

This was my original plan but I think we'll just be flying to Anchorage and exploring from there. Driving from Whitehorse would be great though. I have some leads on some cross-border rentals if you're interested.

Flights from our area to Anchorage are pretty affordable, considering, right now ($800ish). About the same to Whitehorse, but that plan involves a 13 hour drive on top of car rental. I am giving this some serious thought.


$200 less out of Buffalo

i think this would be a pretty memorable 13 hour drive.

i've got a friend in whitehorse that would no longer be my friend if i did not go this route so no option there but have to agree with kev 13 hrs in that part of the continent is a once only gig i cant pass up

66 hour drive!!!!!!


...maybe a little longer on polo gearing. Better leave soon.

Legalize Hand Throws - 2014

Looking to make a team for this if anyone is interested.


Might be looking for team.
There is a possibility of me going to this.
$437 round trip on Delta is not to Bad...


Do it!

be careful... delta charges for bikes.

I'm going to do my best for this.

The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

Yes! We're really hoping cascadia makes a strong presence.
Mostly we just want to fit in with you guys.

So I currently have a teammate and 6 months to make the money. you're technically cascadian yourself so I think it's cool. Just gotta fill in the blanks.

The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

Need a third?

Pumped for this. It's gonna be a blast. Not to mention all the kick ass stuff to do in Alaska while you're up here.

Alright, I'm going to do my best to save up for this... I've never been to Alaska. And I am kinda fond of Polo.
So... who needs a fast and vicious Lefty on their team? Jonathan? Mike? Wassup?

Lefty Bullshit!

Good chance I'm gonna miss our own tournament. Getting sent to RVA that month for work...


375 rountrip from LAX.... hmmm Alaska, Polo and Midsummernight... thats just awesome...

I know, right? I love living in LA! Buying tickets as soon as time off work gets approved.


I hope no one has bought tickets yet. There might be a date change since I have to go to VA for work during the original date. We'll have the date set by Friday.


The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

Meeting has been postponed till Sunday.
The deal is, I'm getting sent to Richmond VA the week before the tournament and wont be back till July. We're trying to get all of the club together to vote if we're going to press on without me or push it back till July.

roger that dance commander.

The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

Any news on those dates?


Yeah really. I don't want to be pushy but me being able to attend hinges on knowing the dates in the next week or so.

I hate to do this but we aren't going to be able to host the tournament anymore. I'm not getting the support I need from the rest of the club and this isn't something I can do by myself. Also we aren't able to come to an agreement with the dates. Sorry to disappoint. We'll shoot for this next year.

Bummer. I'm still probably coming up that week/weekend. Hiking is the new polo

Sweet. We play 3 days a week so be sure to come by. We have extra bikes if you need one.

this sucks, was really looking forward to it.


Me too. A lot of unforeseen crap happened after we announced the tourney though. Like I said, we're gonna try again next year around the same time.






I would suggest you change the title of the event to something that doesn't include **CANCELLED** in it.
