I've said it before and I'll say it again. This tournament was borne from a need to encourage more women to play bike polo. The fact that I met so many new friends this weekend proves to me that Ladies Army is working. The calibre of play continues to blow my mind and my heart melts every time a newer player comes up to me and says "This is my first tournament".
Thank you to our amazing on-the-ground organzing team of EVBP members, thank you to those of you who drained bank accounts getting here, thank you to those who biked up from Bellingham and to those who hopped in cars. So great to see all of you.
I'll let us all breathe a bit and then I'll work with Kev to start a thread for bids for Ladies Army VI!! Holy shit!!
