What's the entry rules for this? Midwest majority?

It's an "Open", John. Anyone can come!

Midwest is best!!

Awesome. I really want to come back to Lexington

I'd love to come to this and party with you all. Having a fantastic time traveling and the few folks I know in Lexington are superb (finally get to come to their house!) Not the best around but If you're in need of a 3rd I'm your guy!

Midwest Open 1 in Lexington was one of the best tournaments i've ever been to. i love fall polo.

Agreed! The heyday of Midwest bike polo. Two foot boards, Hunters on the podium, a slip and slide, and nachos with noodles in it.

ohhhh I want to come.

and I played with you and Chris Williams and had a stomach virus all weekend. Couldn't drink, couldn't smoke, couldn't eat, couldn't even drink water without throwing up. I remember Matt Lane checking me from behind into the fence (we tied him, Chris Simpson, and Guthrie (?)) and I threw up through the fence upon impact.

Not my favorite tournament to remember!

Maybe not but it is quickly becoming my favorite tournament to read about...

Legalize Hand Throws - 2014

Please do the next weekend.

Are the dates still open to debate? How about the following weekend?

The next weekend is Turducken and I'm sure Lex is trying to avoid scheduling conflicts so people can make both tournaments.

Midwest is best!!


Keep your standards low, and morale high.

What about the weekend AFTER turducken?

i'm into this. need a team.

agile for my size.

Yo, I'm into it if you are Horse. Fast/fat all day long!


Sorry John, already nabbed by two skinnys from PGH! Next time!

agile for my size.

Ahhhhh Yisssss! Will there be a smallish floor area to sleep on? I have little to no standards.

There is plenty of housing available!

Housing! I want to come to this. Have air mattress and whiskey, need a place to sleep and party down.

trying to put a team together....

and you know this man.

How about like a month after Turducken? Actually I hear late april is nice.

Legalize Hand Throws - 2014

Update: We are trying to iron out all the details of our court resurfacing and rebuilding. We should have details on when registration opens by this weekend.

I wanna gooooo Lex rules so hard. Anyone wanna play with me? B-)

NOTICE!! Midwest Open delayed until Nov 16-17! Registration will open mid Oct.

I'm going to be there and I don't have a team. I guess I'm a free agent. See everyone there!

can i sign up for this ? i am a pisces and like long hard fought polo matches.

ur pic gets mine

Fuck, I would come to KY just for the Bourbon. When you add a bunch of slackjawed fuckers crashing into each other it sounds like a slice of heaven.

Like the Care Bears said, "sharing (bicycles, F/OSS, alcohol and Josh's Mom...) is caring"

I'm a free agent for this! who needs lefty magic?



/ / / B A D V I B E S / / /

I'm available for this. I'm useful all over the court.

I'll be driving up from Mobile, then out to Denver if anyone needs a ride along the way.

Will there be grippoes?

Team list?

Registration will open Wednesday the 30th at 10pm EST. Link to register will be posted here Wednesday. Try to solidify your teams because no more than one TBD per team will be accepted.

Here is the link to register. Please do not sign up before 10pm EST, Wednesday 10/30

Still looking for a team here, let me know if you need me!

I'm a free agent! How about you, Zac, and I?

Midwest is best!!

YES, you want to register at 10 or may I?

Winston Salem NC Bike Polo

Sweet! Do you mind registering? I'll be at work.

Midwest is best!!

Registered. We can change the team name there if you two dont like. WOOT

Winston Salem NC Bike Polo

Yay! Thanks!! Are you on FB? If so, add me. My name is Megan Mazzei. Lets move this convo so people aren't annoyed by us. : )

Midwest is best!!

oh hi

Awesome idea of only allowing full teams to register Tiffany. Probably stealing that one for future events.

looking for a team and a ride from the airport :')
text me back something freaky (r. kelly)

I'll team up with you! However, I can't pick you up from the airport. You, Jeffrey, and I-what do you say?

Midwest is best!!

i like it. i like it a lot.

i'm still figuring out my money situation and right now tickets to lex from bos are $400.

can anyone offer a place to stay? i've never been to lexington and i don't know anyone there ;'(

also it's only 6.5 miles from the airport to the courts?? that's totally bike-able.

There is plenty of housing in lex

Zac, you may want to get with Nate from New York. Flights are sometimes less expensive in/out of Cincinnati or Louisville. He is looking into flights there, and I'm sure rides can be worked out for both of you. We will have housing for hopefully everyone in the tournament. Some may have to camp, but we are going to try to accommodate everyone.

yeah, i think tentatively i'm riding with dees and nate and whoever they're taking from lancaster. i hope they like insane clown posse because i have a road trip playlist ready to rock.

congrats on the win with toni last week btw. toni i know you'll see this, congrats to you too.


dees and i are driving. road trip! i hope you like CX cuz were gonna talk about hand-ups and the weights of carbon wheels the WHOLE way there!

I will be sending out an email later today to all of the team captains regarding payment, housing options, etc. A few teams have players who are not able to make it, if there are any free any agents who would like to make the trip please let me know. We also have one more spot available if anyone is interested in playing as well. If anyone has any other questions you can contact lexbikepolo@gmail.com. Thank you.

If any of you wild jackalopes need a ride from somewhere in between NYC and LEX, we got room for one in the Spacewägen!

Msg me on FB.

I'm in-between polo bikes right now so can't play but I'm coming to watch cheer heckle laugh puke and maybe rouse some rabbles.

awe man portland to kentucky tickets are pretty reasonable for being last minute. Geeeeez way make decision making more difficult by being possible. Anyone still need a third?

Whos got the crack!

I think there is a whole team spot that opened up?!!! So pick up two more and come. There are a few folks in lex looking for a team.

If anyone is still looking for a third I'm thinking of making the trip down.

Maybe you and Slayla should play with Bruce?

You'll see. Unless you drilled out your eyes because they were too heavy.

Shoot I blew any chance of making this happen on friday night. wups

Whos got the crack!

one week. hold on to yer buttz. also, i think alan from cincy might still be looking to find a team/build a team. i don't think he gets on here too much, but i am willing to pass along any interests in playing with that manbeast.

when pigs fly.



Please let me know if you are still looking for a team.


BAD NEWS: Meg is will most likely be unable to make it
GOOD NEWS: If you dont have a team yet come play with Zac and I. Send me a thing!

Never forget 420

Thanks for hosting, Lex! New courts were awesome. Despite the rain I had a real blast, not to mention some of the best fried fish ever from across the street...
