East Van Crown

Friday, September 18, 2009 - Sunday, September 20, 2009
Host club: 
East Van Bike Polo
Contact info: 
Martin: mrmartinhauck@hotmail.com 604-833-7570

East Van will have our third annual major tourney, The East Van Crown. All y'all mark yer calendars and make sure you are in beautiful Vancouver, B.C., Canada on Friday, September 18, 2009 for partays and then polo all weekend long! Polo will be played on the Saturday and Sunday.

The Friday night party will be at the Anza club and we're gonna get you folks some drink tickets in your reg packs. So that means y'all better register on Friday. Registration will take place at the Grandview Courts during the ladies tourney and we will have someone at the door of the Anza as well. Also, please send me your team name, the players on it and your city BEFORE the tournament so that I know how many teams are coming (mrmartinhauck(at)hotmail(dot)com). The sooner the better as we might have to cap this one.

In the midst of securing the sickest prizes East Van has ever given away. You won't be disappointed!

Thanks to our sponsors so far (logos coming!):
Crumpler, Chrome, Schwalbe, Swrve, Kryptonite, Pilsner, Velocity...

Thanks to Andres and Ken for the poster.

RULES

Shoot with the business end of your mallet - that's the round "end" folks - or else its a "shuffle".

Ball joint – pass to another player off a ball joint before your team can score.

If your foot hits the ground its called a "dab" and you need to tap out on either side of centre court to engage in play again. Two sided (something loud, high hats)

When your team scores, head back to your end and wait for the other team’s first player to cross half before engaging them in play again.

Three contact rules that are acceptable:
Bike on Bike
Body on Body
Mallet on Mallet

We don't appreciate contact combinations (i.e. mallet on bike) and you will be called out!! Also, even though bike on bike contact is okay, there are no t-bones! Mallet on mallet is okay but no wind up hacks! Person on person is good but no punches to the face!

One etiquette rule:
Play others as they play you (i.e. if a player isn't roughing you up, don't take them out).

Passes to your own teammate through the offensive goal can not be scored immediately. The ball must be passed first.

All bar ends and mallets must be plugged.

No own goals.

No mallet throwing.

We seriously encourage the use of a helmet.

Goals are at cone height.

I think I'd be tripping out to discover I was playing polo in a large, wet paper bag, regardless of how many openings it had.

yo! we're trying to get a team or two to roll down from edmonton. just wondering- what type of court do you play on, and what rules are you using? also is having a 4th man for a sub ok?

Yea you had best make it to this tourney. The courts we are using are tennis courts three long. two courts one on either side of nets. Boards will be set up all around. Rules are pretty standard. We can clarify any rules that are different from what you play in Edmonton when you get here but I'm pretty sure we have all the same rules as Calgary if you know how they play. Team of 4 so 1 sub; why not? I only speak for myself but I can't see why anyone would have any objections to that. Come play in East Van and put Edmonton on the Polo map. Email Polly about housing, her info is somewhere on this thread.

EVBP

EVBP

do not miss this one josh, we'll even let you play with four players on the court and change the rules to whatever you want. don't make that 13 unlucky, think of it as 1 + 3 = 4.

dope-smoking hippy british columbians built the coquihalla just for you edmonton, and then paid tolls on it for 20 years so you could drive the 524 km to the east van crown for free. don't let those expo86 billions go to waste, don't make kenny cry.

hahaha. so is this BJ i read back on when you use an uncapped mallet end to sort of roll the ball on the end? i'm under the impression this is all good for carries and passes? sweeps are ok except for shots? hope the tennis courts aren't like the parkade roof one we used here once and i ended up with powdery green paint in my leg scrapes

courts are great. bj's cannot be used to score. all the rules will be posted soon but, as kenny said, they are pretty standard. actually, now that i think about it, go to evbp.ca and check out the rules thread. i'm pretty sure that's all you need to know.

TOP CENTER 4-EVA

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

So do you guys have to wear lids when you play polo? i just read that its law in van that when you cycle you have to wear a lid!!??

LONDON

LONDON>>>EVBP>>>LONDON

Like many things that are The Law, it's up to you. I don't know if the organizers are making helmets mandatory due to any sponsorships or likewise but hey, it's your head. I'm sure there will be first-aid trained people there who will admonish you for stupidity and gently tend your bleeding wounds.

Besides, EVBP exists in a nebulous Autonomous Zone where only minor subsets of real world physical rules, including physics, apply.

I am pretty certain we are making helmets mandatory for our tournament.

and why would this be? let people do what they want, there are no liability issues...

EVBP

we did talk about this but i don't think we made a decision. personally i feel that helmets are a good think and the guy lafluers of polo should trade in hipster points for brain cells but i also feel conflicted about dictating something that is a personal choice. we'll get the official word out soon but, if you have a helmet, you should probably bring it. and no, it's not about liability right now. it's about wanting to see our friends walking the next day.

Whateva. I look good both helmeted and non, so you fashionistas take note.

And I don't want to see you walking unless you're limping to the liquor store to buy me another sixpack.

way to sound like a high school teacher martin. the safety points of helmets in polo are drastically overblown, as they are with all cycling activities in general, but especially with polo. i'll even send you captivating articles about it one day. let's not appease the lowest common denominator that are organisations like MADD who are serving their own economic interests with 'safety' type lobbying, and skewing perceptions of reality. for me the issue is not fashion but comfort, and if you want your friends walking the next day following polo then they should be wearing shin and/or knee pads more so than helmets.

EVBP

TLDR

of course there is nothing that will prevent any and all head injuries. however, i have hit my head and been hit in the head playing polo sometimes wearing a helmet and sometimes not. the result of my experiments: a helmetless head injury hurts more. duh.

a man who assaults the human heart with a battering ram.
a teardrop that encompasses and drowns the world.
with his strange and playful intelligence ,
expressed in puns ,paradoxes ,and the elaborately
sustained metaphors known as 'conceits'

WOW THAT IS SOME FREAKIN SHIT MAN

hi friends.

in a fit of no self-control, i bought a ticket to the west coast.

i am now coming to this and need a) a team, and b) some good west coast hospitality.

i'm not worried about b.

if anyone is looking for a third, i'm a decent mid-fielder and i've been known to score big fat goals (ask pieter). also looking for some ladies for saturday!

so excited.

She's right, no fits of self-control on the big fat goals.

apparently no one in nyc has any self-control this week. fiona's coming too. i made her buy a ticket after feeding her a few beers.

ok, yesterday your news was enough to send me into squeals of delight..and now fi too....i can't seem to reel myself in. Way to go ladies! We seem to have some individuals coming to East Van. One from Vermont Rachel, that i could hook the two of you up with for the ladies tourney Friday night, As for the Crown, I am sure there are teams as yet not formed. We'll work it out. Send me a note if you need a place to stay. I am doing housing and have not placed anyone with myself yet, and i can accomodate the two of you for sure!

hey polly, if you still have room, fi and i would love to squeeze in at your house. we'll def need a place to stay. if you want, we can bring nyc bagels, but they might be kind of stale by the time we arrive. world's AM bracket just finished and there were NOT ENOUGH LADIES. can't wait.

Sorry to hear not enough ladies in the morning barcket. That's what The Ladies Army is all about - more women in polo!

consider yourselves squeezed! i would be honoured to have you stay! hope you are having a great time in philly..not enough ladies huh? next year..i'll be going to the NAs and worlds next year. just try to hold me back!!! xo

Yay! Polly I can't wait...book me on your floor!

ay polly some of us victorians will require housing of sorts as well....available floors? attics? crusty kitchens?

let me know how many and if you can bring sleeping bags etc, and i'll hook you up! xo

FREE AGENT
I am gonna be a free agent on this one do to lack of portlanders with passports. so i am looking to be on a team ill be the third or we can figure it out friday night at the ladies tounery. plus polly i need a place to stay i am sure there are gonna be takers for me on housing but who wants to take care of me for three days and nights ill be there thursday night late. plus this guy has never been to the east van before so looking to go riding around friday. please let me know who wants to play polo with me. drew.cascadia@gmail.com
thanks

Dude?! How can it be that you have never been to East Van before??? I almost don't believe it!
As you know, the women are busy on Friday, but there's tonnes of East Van hospitality to show you around on Friday.

Cheers,
L.

and besides, you need to come and cheer the ladies on at the courts!

oh we'll take care of you all right! i think kayla, tiah and meag are coming from PDX too....just in case you need a ride. xo

Oh man, I'm sensing that after this shindig it's gonna be de rigueur to have women's/men's tourneys... at least in the Cascadia Love Triangle...

two asshole's don't make it right"
BUTT three asshole's make a good team"

That's the plan my man! Nothing but three days of hot polo-on-polo action for the ladies!!

So my team does not have passports. I will be coming up with some other Portlanders for the tourney, but I do not as of yet have any formulated team. This means I will be an open and free agent for the tourney, if you need a third that can pass, shoot, block, check, keep goal, and be an all around menace on the court, let me know. RAWBIE BOARDZ? Any interest?

call it!

seriously people, pick this girl up!

if no one takes you fiona, i'll let you play with rory and chris. they sort of suck, but you can whip them into shape.

well only if Rory wears some sort of animal ears and if Chris develops some sort of animal roar...I'm thinking of dressing as a mother hen so I can order them about the place!

wow, they would love that. you have no idea.

adam hicks asked me to ask you if you want to camp at wreck beach with him all weekend.

IMG_7337.JPG

dearest fiona,
you know that no such thing was asked, and that pieter cannot be trusted as far as he can be thrown. wreck beach is a nude beach out at UBC, and is by far the best beach in vancouver for the open water, seclusion, and whatever cannabis product (mushrooms too) you can think of which are readily available to you via the multiple vendors walking around with just a hip-sack (rory and cara would fit right in). "Beer and a joint, five bucks!" is the classic vendor chant. and as i have already tried to explain to mr. pietard, wreck is also an arena of sexual ambivalence, but he has a hard time getting his head out of the proverbial sand. so that being said, i think for those who are around for a few extra days after the tourney, we should go for a ride out there and discover the little jewel in vancouver that is wreck beach...and for all those uptight east coasters, you can keep your spandex on if you like, it is clothing optional...

Super excited.
