Our usual polo location, Hawthorne School is under construction and a new court has been discovered by a small crew of trepidatious polo warriors.  A well lighted, underground location with the potential for winter play has been sourced in the basement of the NEW Bozeman parking garage.  It's small and there are some barriers but I think it will suffice in the interim.

The Bozeman Hardcourt Bike Polo players will have visitors from both the East Van Polo club (British Columbia) as well as the Billings Hammer & Cycle Bike Polo club at 7:00pm on Monday, July 12th. Come down and play some polo with us at Hawthorne School (corner of Rouse and Mendenhall), meet some new folks, and do what we do best - - ride bikes!

An organization known as the League of Bike Polo was formed over the past year and is becoming the defacto legislating body of Hardcourt Bike Polo. Recently an official set of rules was published and I agree with some of them but prefer our Bozeman-specific rules to others. What are everyone's thoughts?

The North Wind Doth Blow.  A nursery rhyme.The North wind doth blow and we shall have snow,And what will poor robin do then, poor thing?He'll sit in a barn and keep himself warmand hide his head under his wing, poor thing.

Do you read this blog yet haven't met many of the other readers or moderators?  Do you want to?  Because we want to meet you.  But we don't just want to meet you, we want to meet you and do some cycling.  We meet every Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm on the asphalt behind Hawthorne School for friendly games of pick-up Hardcourt Bike Polo.  Come on down and meet us - we'll lend you a mallet and a bicycle to try it and we go really, really easy on beginners.

Yep, I know that's what a lot of you are thinking. It's been too damn long since I've posted anything here and even longer since we had an alleycat in Bozeman. A few things have been going on, I'm going to take the liberty to use them as excuses:

Last night Nash, Tom, and I got some more mallets made. Thanks to Sam for getting the ABS for the mallet heads. Hopefully they'll be a bit tougher than the PVC we've been using.Also, if you're on Facebook check out the Bozeman Bike Polo group. I'll be important things on there too in the future. Maybe more, since it's really easy to use.Ok, see you tonight!-DNA

Mallet Building. Grab an old ski pole or golf club and come on down to the new Bike Kitchen location. Off of Rouse, head east at the Meat Shoppe. Go down that short street, it's in the garage at the end on the left.I'll have my drill and bits and a hacksaw. Maybe I'll pick up some epoxy. You'll need to provide your own grip tape (hockey tape works well, available at Summit or Army-Navy) and pipe. Try to find 2" O.D. PVC will work but eventually will break- you've been warned. Sam might bring some ABS.Ok, see you there.-DNA

Last night we had some good polo. Alex did his part to wrest the title of "Most Entropious" from our own Captain Entropy by folding two rear wheels tonight. Tom managed to get a mallet in his front wheel, Cruiser Sam showed up and I almost killed Sten. Good times, all around.Anyway, here's some (trippy) pics:

Last night's polo games were some of the best I've seen. Nice shots, great blocks and passes, and the wrecks. Oh, the wrecks. I'm still laughing about those.Anyway, somebody left a scarf, and I've got it. Email me if you want it back.-DNA
