Start here with all requests to edit thread comments.

Retired.

NOLA, I got some bar space saturday night @ the Blind Mule for the gold sprints if you're willing to bring the equipment over or let me grab it some weekend coming up.

Prizesorship courtesy of Eastern Shore Cycles and a couple other LBS's. Chukkers, ribmos, franklin reds. Workin on some armor plating from the LH(ockey)S.

As far as housing goes, we can accomodate in excess of 50 people within 10 minutes of the courts. Getting around on bike isn't complicated and is pretty nice in midtown (where the courts are) and downtown (where the party are). Plus alot of us drive big trucks and will be happy to help move ur drunk asses and ur gay little bikes around.

DId you guys make the courts better? I hated my life playing on those tennis courts last time.

Let it be man. Just let it be.

We are going to have another work day before then to finish patching up the remaining cracks. Let it be man...just let it be.

Crichton team 2.o

Here is our line up...

We'll be having the POOL PARTAY on saturday night instead of trying to setup goldsprints at the bar. BRING UR SWIMMIES AND FLOATIES. Get krunk on the reg. Do cannonballz on the reg. Push Jeff in the pool on the reg. Don't break my moms plants!

Oh and my team: SOUTHERN DECADENCE (Fraz, Liz, Jacque)

You pick the ONE weekend I'm going to a wedding. LAAMMMMMME.

Live Clean Ride Dirty jaxbikepolo.blogspot.com

FUUUUUUUUUUUCK I WANT TO COME TO THIS!!!!!!!

Fuck off

its free for anyone traveling from afar if that's any incentive. the pool partay alone will be worth the trip

Austin needs to be here..we would be glad to have you guys.

Bike Judge

we'll be there. a few of us anyhow!

YIP!

I fucking love this song!

so.....jazz and i are working on getting a third austinite on board for this! i am bummed there will not be goldsprints, but i am always game for a pool party.
who can house three, maybe four of us from ATX?

We will be working on housing..we have alot of people that live close to the courts. Or who knows we might all end up passed out at frazer's house on saturday night beside the pool.

Bike Judge

I'm really trying to make this tourney fit into my schedule.

Fuck off

do it!!!

I can house about 6 people, more if need be, and everyone else in Mobile is in the same boat. For those of you coming in Friday, I'll be moved into an apartment about a mile from the court. Feel free to crash!

why not goldsprints? if russell can't make it, i can probably get the setup transported and i can set it up and work it. DO A SPRINT, DOWN A PUKER, JUMP IN THE POOL! count it.

preesh the comment. ole ann silver got that photo for me in Savannah whne we made that trip. is it a confirmation on having the gold sprints or not. never done them and would really love to give it a go and being by the pool at frazers would be gnarly indeed

what is the sleep situation for this?
we have a definite 4 coming from austin.

I've got floor space and I only live 3 miles from the court. Plus, Todd and I usually thrown down on pancakes before polo.

I'll see your floor space and raise you a couch. Savannah? ATX? NOLA? Who's down? If anyone wants to stay, I just need to let the roomies know.

What evs, just sayin' party in Crichton with leprechauns in trees and all:)

Wow leprachauns sound exciting but dibs on that couch jacques!!! X4!!

Can't say I blame ya, I would choose couch over floor any day.

Sounds great, Jasmine. Looking forward to this!

now hold the phone for just one minute.....jazzy called dibs on the couch, but how close are you to the courts jacques?! if drew is closer....and promising pancakes...maybe we reconsider, eh?!
more importantly (for those of us not able to squeeze on couch with jazz), who's got CARPET? anybody? anybody?

is that some kind of weird sexual euphemism?

...i saw it coming....
you going to be in mobtown big business man?!

...i saw it coming....

there you go again.

mo wrote:

i don't play polo, i just talk about it on the internet. in fact, i don't even own a bike.

I'm farther from the courts, but I'm more then willing to do pancakes. Oh, and I've got carpet. And I just found out I have an extra bed since one of the other guys who pays rent here is going out of town. And tennis courts for polo IN MY BACK YARD. Just sayin'.

wowsas!!!!

Are you calling me fat?!? So not cool mo

we r testing out a lighted tennis court for fri night pickup tonight, permission granted and everythang! it'll replace our USA courts if it works out.

cement is down and drying @ the turney courts at crawford (thx for helping molo). i'm going to get the boards from pcola tomorrow night.

prizes getting ordered tomorrow, still a couple of odds and ends to take care of but its shaping up to be a great wknd. the goldsprints are up in the air (paul, confirm on this?), but there will be a band playing at my house at the pool party saturday night. still planning on providing some grub for lunch both days, veg friendly.

Dang Sounds awesome fraz! Am I going to be able to find boiled pnuts!! I'm of the the understanding that I am...true or false?

if ur talkin bout "the" peanut man, he died a few years ago at the ripe age of 86. but theres no lack of boiled nutz in this town. wish I could say the same for local seafood right now, fuckin oil spill :(

really horribly sad and upsetting about this damn oil spill. so so sorry gulf coast gays and gals...and sealife!

Freudian slip?? What about the straight boys mo? Do they not deserve your sympathy??

i need a place for me and my girlfriend. hollerrr...

goldsprints are out. i tried hounding russell for the past week but he's been unresponsive lately. he's waiting on parts for the rollers and the bikes are in disrepair. sorry guys. i'll take the blame. we can do laps in the pool or something.

hey mobile, thanks for being great! i had a blast playing with all of yall.
good times swimming, smokin, tiny diny adventures, playing 7 intense games, eating pizza, sweet shoe gaze tunes while we duck slam on the back porch, torrential rains, almost getting struck by lightning- 110%!, slumber parties, frazers mom's house- so sweet!
cant wait to see you all sooner than later!

glad everyone had a good time..sucks I could not make it out any other time than friday night.

Bike Judge

Thanks all for the weekend. Sorry I was afraid of lightning. Catch yall next time. Most definitely before Austin's tourney.

http://sportsmedicine.about.com/od/enviromentalissues/a/lightning.htm

pay extra attention to the place where it talks about being on a bicycle or holding metal objects.

Person #1: "haha, that pussy is afraid of lightning."
Person #2: "UUHHHHH YEAH, HAHA, WHAT AN IDIOT, UUHHHHHH."
Person #3: "it's science."
Person #1: "heh, science, whatever."
Person #2: "UUHHHH HAHA, SCIENCE, UUHHHH"

"If you are caught in a lightning storm and if you feel your hair stand on end..." (from the article)

nick (post tournament): "it was pretty crazy at one point in between games when mo's hair started standing on end" = mo totally almost died. ya we're a bunch of pussies
