First of all, thank you to everyone that signed up!! We really appreciate your interest in what was to be the first 5 player bench format. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide this miraculous experience to you, the polo community.
There are a number of barriers keeping this tournament from happening:
1. Due to our lack of permanent courts, we rent park space to host these tournaments. This has worked well in the past. There is a large crack in the court’s playing surface. Our parks department has not been able to remedy this problem.
2. While we realize this would be an awesome tournament format, we have less than 5 full teams registered at this point.
3. Directly due to reason #2 we have very little funds to construct the court and to rent the less-than-perfect space.
We would like to say that these reasons alone are why we can’t host this tournament, but the nail in coffin is one we never saw coming:
Zachary took all our money—the little we had--to fly to Albuquerque for vacation by himself.
We wanted nothing more than to see all you awesome people and to host this tourney. We think it would have been a great time for everyone, and we’re truly sorry to those that freed up their schedules and planned to come to this event.
Thank you again to everyone that showed interest and signed up for this tournament! We hope to see you soon at the next tourney and share some whiskey. We would like to try this format again next season.
