Dear fellow poloistas!

The Munich polo crew is happy to invite you to our polo tournament Polocatepetl!

The tournament will take place in the course of the Bike Expo. We´ll have two courts located in the so-called "action hall". We´ll have pick-ups on Thursday and Friday, the actual tournament will be on Saturday and Sunday. If needed, we could also start with some tournament games on Friday, provided there´s enough teams in town already. The number of teams is set at 24 for the time being.

There is no specific time for the registration. First come, first serve. If you want to play, send an email to: angie[at]bikepolo-muenchen.de

This tournament is also our bid for the EHBPC 2012. We want the community to get an idea of how the European Championships next year could be like. But of course, the EHBPC will be bigger, faster, better!

If the European community likes this years organization and tournament, we would love to host next year´s Euros. We have the full support of the Bike Expo people, the dates will be set in September/October, so there´s going to be enough time for organising your trip to the Bavarian capital.

Come on over for some polo fun!

Things are coming along. Here are some new and exciting info about the tournament:

For entering the BIKE EXPO you´ll get ticket codes about a week prior to your arrival with a how-to so you can print your own tickets for the fair. Once you´re in, your team will be given vouchers for the food court. We´ll also provide beer, water and soft-drinks for the players.

We´ll have two indoor tournament courts. But as we all can´t get enough of polo, we´ve organised an outdoor court at the venue, which can be used as a pick-up court by daytime, and - more importantly- which has lights, so we can pull a polo all-nighter after the fair closes its doors. There will be a BBQ and a decent supply of beer, all to fair prizes and brought to you by the Bikepolo München community. PLUS: No need to worry about how to get home late at night. Just crawl into your tent next to the outdoor-court after taking a shower and brushing your teeth in the on-site sanitary facilities. Sleep like a baby and then walk to the court in your your pyjama the next morning to watch the early games. Hell yeah!
Please inform Schustar via andreas.schuster[at]hotmail.de if you fancy the camping solution or if you (still) prefer private housing. If you want to camp, bring your own tent or vehicle.

And now, just for a short moment, close your eyes and imagine the EHBPC 2012 in Monaco di Bavaria:
Five indoor courts, never-ending supply of beer and other healthy beverages, an outdoor court for late-night polo, on-site camping, ..., POLO FESTIVAL!!!

Don´t miss the opportunity to get a foretaste of what the Euros could be like next year and come to Polocatepetl!

Only 18 days left…

Wish i was able to be there , sounds fantastic . Gets my vote for the euros next year .

Have fun this weekend! Wish I was there.
