The Golden Townie Bicyle Fraternity/Golden Polo League are wanting to
throw a spring polo party and want to see who would be down with
making the trip to our court. I'm sure there are loads of Calgarians
who'd come. Boys of Van, you in! Hopefully the sun will shine, the court will be dry and the snow on the side of the court will give us a nice tan!

The date hasn't been set in concrete yet. Might be the next weekend also. It justed asked for dates. 

 

***UPDATE Date has been changed to the Easter Long weekend. So now all you slackers from the Coast can get up here and enjoy the real mountains. *******

+++UPDATE 2++++ HELMETS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS TOURNAMENT. IT IS A STIPULATION OF THE INSURANCE WE GOT. +++

 

Rules

 

  • Bike on Bike
  • Mallet on Mallet
  • Body on Body
  • No shuffle goals counted
  • No passing thru goal
  • After a goal, the scoring team must return to their half of the court
    and remain there until the ball is brought across the line. The scored
    upon team has to wait for the “reset” before they can bring the ball
    past center court - no surprises/tailing the now-defending team as they
    cross the line.
  • If ball goes out of play- opposite
    team's ball, from location of outage.
  • Start is 1,2,3, Polo
  • Stopages for beer are allowed. Currently opened beer only. 
  • Dabbing at Centre court or on assigned
    item (Concrete siding in centre of court- could change on the day)

    by 2 players
  • Shots over 1/2 court not counted
  • Helmets are required for Tournaments.
    No Lid, no play.

I will have a list ready of rules when you arrive. This is just an outline. So far.

Let's go Kenny R.

Gussy, Is this a two day tourney or should I bring my snowboard?

stay golden

-EVBP-

We will be having an Alley Cat on the Friday night, then the tourney on Sat and Sun, at this stage. Depends on how many people show up. Could go all the way to Monday.

Golden Polo

Golden/Victoria/Golden Polo

Wha? Monday? How are you doing the bracketing, how many courts are there and how long is the time limit on each game?
Not everyone is as fortunate as yours truly to have been laid off recently, I think you'd be hard pressed to keep people 'til monday.

stay golden

-EVBP-

I know, it would be hard to keep people till monday, but it is a holiday. So maybe 1/2 a day?

I am just working out bracketing. Thinking of doing double elim at this stage. We have one main court, with obstacles, it is a basketball court. We moved the concrete bins since piet hit them. We are looking at getting some padding for the poles, they hurt. I know hit them loads last summer. There is also a seasonal ice skate rink that is behind the court, we are looking at getting that shovelled by the town, and play on there also, wont have as good a walls for rebound play, but we will work something out. Ice walls maybe?

Time limits haven't been set. Depends on the amount of players.

Ideas are welcome. You can email me at lukeanichols at gmail dot com with ideas.

Golden Polo

Golden/Victoria/Golden Polo

i'll probably come. if you want suggestions here ya go:

best format ever? two day tourney, first day round robin, second day double elim.
two courts allow for more games.
lots of good music.
free beer makes the 8-9 hour drive from east van seem negligable.
side event: keep the pieter bin to let pieter run into it. he misses that. we could all watch.
boards/walls = good.
tourney ending sunday. pick up on monday for those who can stick around. for those who can't, it's a travel day.
friday night party, make it insane and then exercise self-control. get your opponents wasted while you dance around them and pop in sweet goals on saturday. repeat process the following night-day.
have killer prizes.
have killer trophy.
be sure to kiss those last two goodbye as east van wants to take em home!

love,
martin
TOP CENTER 4-EVA

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

Why don't you use those sweet three in a row tennis courts I see on the satellite view? Are there any sort of boundaries to keep the ball in play on the b-ball court? I agree with Martin's format suggestion, but I'm against music and beer. Rather we had a manic street preacher and some kool-aid.
Don't stress if you don't have wicked schwag, but it's a bonus.
I'm stoked dude.

stay golden, Golden

-EVBP-

Would like to but i think they would scratch up pretty good with the tires. They are only freshly painted. We will have some viewing from those courts too.

I can organise preachers and kool-aid. Would you like a teddy to hold also when your feelings get hurt from loosing?

Golden Polo

Golden/Victoria/Golden Polo

zing!

TOP CENTER 4-EVA

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

The bball court has concrete barriers up around it. Nice and smooth on 3 sides the other side has a chain mesh fence.

Sounds good for the event layout. I will share that idea around with the other organisers.

Oh as for the trophy, Golden will show you how it is done. We all know every kink in the wire mesh fench, we study it all winter long, waiting for the spring to emerge and then we study it some more, the holes in the barriers. We are like silent ninjas that strike when you don't realise. Swiftly and deadly.

Golden Polo

Golden/Victoria/Golden Polo

Right, the reason that won't matter is because the ball won't be in the chain mesh fench,
rather it shall be
a) on my mallet or
b) in your net
Robbie likes to drink old milwaukee from his trophies.

stay golden

what the hell has robbie ever been awarded a trophy in?

TOP CENTER 4-EVA

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

Do you mean to tell me that there are 6 times as many men as women? eGad.

stay (away from) golden??

-EVBP-

Pretty much. Some nights it i play a game called spot the non-cock. It is hard work. Ladies are around, but can be very selective in their judgements. I however am friends with most, and act as a door keeper. In with me, in with the ladies.

Golden Polo

Golden/Victoria/Golden Polo

hey, so we're trying to get a couple people together to come out, if there's still room. anybody going that way from vancouver or the island that wants to do a lil carpool?

There is plenty of people coming from Van. Robbie, Martin and a few more. Would be cool to have a team from Vic, ask Jeremy if he is coming up.
