Hi - is there a "newbie" night in East Van. I'm going to be in Vancouver July 29 - Aug 8, staying near Main and the waterfront. Would love to play, but am quite new at it and will be on a borrowed bike.
Is there a women's night?
(you might know my son, Alexis - I think he's played in East Van)
I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones.

I actually met you in Ottawa outside the MEC around 2001. You were on one of your Dutch scooters that I think you were also selling at the time.
I used to work with Alexis as a messenger in Ottawa from 1998-99. I just saw him in NYC.
There is no real newbie night, nor do we have a regular ladies day of polo anymore. We tend to play on Saturdays at Grandview Park (Commercial Drive and Charles Street, 4 blocks north of 1st Avenue), but it will be under renovation soon and may not be open when you arrive. We also play most evenings from around 8pm behind Brittania Arena at Brittania High School in the alley south of Venables at Woodland. These places are very near where you are staying - about a 10 or 15 minute bike ride along the Union/Adanac bike route.
You can always borrow someone else's bike and we always have extra mallets.
It will be great to see you.
Send me your email address, and I can keep you more up to date: lisa (dot) moffatt (at) gmail.com.
Hi Lisa - Did you make a CD of songs about being a bike messenger? Anyway, neat that we've already met. I will try to go by Brittania on Friday night. My friend said I can use her bike, but I have no idea what kind of bike it is. I have been spoiled by using my bamboo bike which is so nimble. Anyway, it would be fun just to watch. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you soon.

This is toby from little rock. We have a chance to get a new court since the city is fixing to demolish at least one of ours. We will have to have some specs and budget items to show the park. I was wondering if you could share some of your magical talent, skills, and budget with us. You can even keep things in canadian dollars. Please email me at email@example.com
Thankyou kindly and I still have that cute pic of you to send u.
Sending you an email now!
I didn't receive the email. Did you send it to the league posts or my email? Could you send it again? firstname.lastname@example.org
Jeff from Tulsa. If you are sending out your Polo Court cadcam please email it to email@example.com
Does your friendJess have a ladies team yet?
Hi there, would it be possible to see the autocad drawing's of your polo court? We are currently setting up a meeting with our local council and cycling development officer. The commonwealth games are being held in our city in 2 years and there's a big push towards building sports facilities so it's our best shot! It would be great to have drawings to show exactly the sort of space that has been built elsewhere to give them a solid idea of what's required.
Dang. Totally didn't record my T-shirt size until today. Am I SOL for my size?
We'll have exta t-shirts on site.
