Hey Portland!

I think this is a great idea, but I'd like to make a suggestion that might make for a higher turn out at both of your proposed tournaments.

I propose you move this to the weekend of your "new format" (give me a break by the way, this name is so lame - yes, I know the history) tournament and run a one day co-ed and one day bench minor.

This particular weekend is going to be difficult for people in Cascadia to travel to, especially women as there is Polo Retreat (April 6-8 on Gabriola Island, BC) and Ladies Army (April 27-29 in Lexington, KY). That's a lot of traveling in one month.

We'd really like to support you, because we love playing with you folks, but I'd like to suggest you consider combining these two tournaments. Could make things easier for organizing on your end too!

- Pitbull

(I am going to duplicate this post on the other tournament.)

Change dates please! Too many commitments in April already and I'd really like to attend.

Oh also, whenever this happens, Ima free agent.

Hey Shannon let's team up for this, I think we did pretty well in SF. Let's find a third and do this.

Deaddog- sacbikepolo

Looking for a lady.

Dates have been changed to Oct 6-7.

See you there.

Can you change the poster??!

Thank you Portland, really appreciate you accommodating the date change.

xo

done!

Awesome. I can make it now!

I've never been so excited! Who wants to team up??

Balls for balls!

I think we have this team covered at this point. Count it.

who is yalls third? i wanna go!

possibly baines

if that falls through, i'll play with y'all.

fuck ur face

you should consider playing with some of the cascadians if you're gonna come that far out, doesn't make sense to play with your homies since you already do that on a daily basis. just saying.

hey ladies!

I think Chris and I might make it out to this. Does anyone want to be our third?!

Midwest is best!!

I'll be your 3rd wheel if you're into that sort of thing

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
If you aren't sinning, Jesus died for nothing.

I haven't quite talked to Chris about it, but I'll let you know for sure soon.

Midwest is best!!

So I realized this is the weekend after Bench Minor and it will be hard to travel so far out of town two weekends in a row, so we most likely won't be able to make it. Sorry, Mark!

Midwest is best!!

I'll be there. xo

i wanna play in this for sure. mo here, single gal who likes to have fun. i've found my competitive edge this year; i'm not afraid of [giving or receiving] speed or physical contact and the well-intended cuddle, i work well with teammates and i'll champion us off the court and on the dance floor as well! somebody, holler!

Hi Bellingham Will want to get a third and be a bellcouver team?

Looking for a pair to make this polonage trois go down! Who's with it

Myself and Chandel may be looking for a third for this. Please let us know if any interest, thanks!

Fuck off

Yes.

oh my gawww so many free agents I wanna add my name to the free agents list and wait until the LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT TO GET A TEAM so please don't consider adding me to your team until we are at the polo courts day of the tournament thanks.

also I'm probably one of the illest players with the most wicked passes. By selecting me, you can expect I'll pass the ball and you two be able to sneak around your defenders as they stare in comatose haze. And as you glide in to a kiss, you'll be able to both one time the the ball and swoop out from the goal and the ball lands in the goal with a romantic fire that the other team will become engulfed in a jealous rage that will surely drive each other apart shortly after playing us.

or I can just sit goal. your choice. .

I super think that i can make it to this! Im in need of a west coast trip anyway... will probably do it like last year and fly into seattle. stoked... flights in/out of mpls are way cheaper than mke. keep me in your hopes and dreams!

Anchorage is in the works of sending a team down. If not a full team, then at least 2 players that could get picked up.

So stoked for this! I love you Portland!

polopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolopolo

Is this gonna be bench style, or can we have 1 alternate player?

not bench style, that would probably be fine

Anyone looking for a solo lady to be their 3rd? I'm relocating to Sacramento from Lexington the week before this tourny and am STOKED to play... it'll be my first west coast tourn and 5th tourn this year. I can promise ridiculousness, epic shotgunning, a giant grin on my face the whole time and occasional impressive one-hitters :D

Cheers,
Jamelyn

I don't see us on the registration link...
You can park your vanagon at Bjorn's if you want.

who's still looking? I'm thinking I may just come down to be a permanent ref and get some cascadia reffing experience.

Is there a list of people signed up for this?

Anyone still looking for a lady? the folks in San Francisco are being lame suckfests. I'm a lefty who kicks ass and also takes names.

Holla.

If you dont know Sam from SF then you dont know brutally ,straight for the jugular, heckling SF style. Cover your kids ears and feel the warm trickle down your neck as your ears bleed.
Bummed that i already have 3 tournies that month so alas cant swing this weekend in the home town of my fave team Portland United dadadada. .
i'm so hoping that the Victoria Winter mixer will be happening in some form or other to cap tournie season 2012 on the west coast.

I will be playing with kayla and Shane bit can I get a conformation that other Lexington players are going to make it up?

eli what the fuck happened to you man? u living in Portland? ur bike is still here at the house. is safe.

I went on west coast polo tour without any planning. It was amazing. Sorry for leaving my bike there I came by and swooped it with my pro Craigslist rideshare move

Well, shoot, I guess I need a team for this.

FUN POLO!!!!!

...those days are over.

JUST KIDDING!

hey, i'm a little late on this. I just moved to Portland from Indiana and am a single male looking to get on a team for this. i've played in quite a few tournaments in the midwest and am good a defensive mid.

** UPDATE **

Location Change! We're playing at our beloved Albert Park now, and it'll be amazing.

Also, anyone in need of housing can contact me through here through LOBP, or via FB, or Smoke Signals

It'd be swell if you'd register your team here: http://hardcourtbikepolo.org/polo/main/tournament/77.html

Isn't Alberta only one court? Or am I mis-remembering?

You're right.

We're no longer allowed to hold tourneys at Rose City, on account of some recent ones getting a little too rowdy. We've got solid plans in the works for future tourney sites, but on short notice, Alberta it is!

just can;t wait. Holy name takers and ass kickers...cant wait to meet some new faces in polo. Alberta, home of the "cage matches" little Beirut polo.

Can't wait to get our asses kicked by some of the best polo players around! And to drink lots o' polo juice.

Hey folks- anyone coming up from Sac/SF (or passing through en route) that would want to carpool up to Portland? I have a pretty open schedule... can leave whenever and don't have to be back until midday Monday...

Crab shots.

Scratch that thought... surprise work commitment = no Portland for me :(

Crab shots.

Hey folks, so I'm sort of tied up with school and not working enough to have many travel dollars right now, which makes me a little sad because I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY UGGGHH REALLY REALLY want to be in PDX for this one! ....there's still a chance...but it's leaning towards "no" because I have a commitment to not fuck up at school, now that I'm a student again...

But, I have an inquiry for all the polo folks traveling in cars from North & South and back. My little sis, 18 and adventurous and awesome, though not quite diving into polo, is on a mission to get to Vancouver. She wants to rideshare it. Being that she's 18 years young, my mom and I are both a bit nervous for her to take the trip. My question for ya'll: Are there folks going UP to PDX from SF/Norcal via car who could take her along (no bike) and are there folks leaving PDX going NORTH to Seattle/Olympia/Vancouver who could help her get farther north? She has money for gas, and is smart, sweet and awesome. I wanna help her on her journey, but we'd all feel much better if she was with friends/polo family for parts of the way. Send me an email (passionforwords @ gmail . com) if you think you might have a spot for her in a vehicle. She doesn't need a babysitter, just a ride. :)

Ride, bake, polo, repeat.

So our lady friend backed out so we our looking for any available girls to play with us. Anyone able to help? If so just send me an email emagdnimroller@gmail.com

So excited about this tournament! It can't come soon enough....looking forward to meeting all you west coast polo players.

Has anyone noticed that anchorage is flying down for this tourney and still needs a lady. If this is true someone please help them!!!!!

Yes! Thank you! We're still scrambling for a lady.

We'll even take a guy in drag at this point.

Hmm... ok. I understand park complications, but can you guys realistically hold a tournament on one court? I don't know how many teams you're expecting, but I think about 6 are coming out of Seattle. What kind of structure, and Swiss Rounds will you be able to hold?

EDIT: To be perfectly clear, I just found out there are a ton of breweries around that area, and I'm trying to strategize my drinking.

Portland, What time does the tourney start at Alberta on Saturday.

PoloEug

Thank you for this question. Also, please add the info to the top of the page.

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

So I just got back from looking at potential sights for our Saturday post-polo party.
I talked to Eric, the owner of The Allleyway Bar on Alberta and he is really excited to have
us. There willi be a DJ playing TRL, Roller Rink, Awesome type music. No Cover.
$5 Tall boy and a shot specials for us. Alley drag racing next to the bar. If you have not been
To this spot the food is hot and plentiful and won't break the bank. Plenty of bike parking in front.
Anytime after 9 is good. Just let the door guy know you are with Bike Polo to get on the inside.
