First day : 16 teams tourney
Second day : Throw ins
place : Stade Saint-Exupéry | Rouen (same as the Happy wheels tourney)
court: outdoort rink hockey (bigger than the ones they had in GVA this summer) with a roof, so we can play even if it rains or snows, or wathever can happen but don't forget your bonnet and mittens.

Principle of the tourney and gifts
The aim is simple, have a nice and friendly Week end in Rouen.
But keep in mind: No gift …. NO POLO
Each team brings a gift for another one. So each team will receive a gift from another one.
(Your gift has to be signed => « from 'team name' »).
At the end, each team gets to pick one of the gifts under our Polo Christmas tree.

Friday 28th of January
Those who want to arrive on friday will be welcomed by Rouen's teams to head directly to one of our warm pub to have a nice beer or maybe going to « get some » directly on our court.

Dimanche 30 janvier
10h00 : Meeting at « Guidoline » (51 rue Molière) just near the «  place Saint Marc » to have coffee … then everyone gets to the out-door market on « la place Saint Marc » to get the best food from Rouen

Pierre-Adrien (Eugene) is working really hard on it so every team gets the maximum amount of games to play in one day. So we'll keep in touch really soon.

There will be people at Guidoline to meet with you guys all day long (at least from noon until late in the afternoon)

Iron ponies, Grenoblers , Angie etc will be in town round noon or in early afternoon so there will be plenty of people to play polo.

I hope you enjoyed it, because that was the last you see a Poney eating a Lion !


Last goal, Filmed by Sarah, scorer's girlfriend, so you can't really see something because of the excitation (9 min golden goal i think) but the drop of the stick. Team working!

Congrat's ponies!
it was a fucking great time fighting you
but we'll see next time...

j'etais en Rouen comme juene fille au pair pour l'annee 2000. tant pis que polo n'etait pas la encore.
