Wow, you guys are awesome. I'm trying to figure out how to arrange shuttle service between courts, and you guys have five dollar barbecue. I can almost remember playing polo like that. I feel like I just found an ad for a four cent cup of coffee in an old magazine. Fucking awesome. Good luck with the tournament, and I hope you can send a team to Philly. The world wants to play with you.

We are lucky. if it came to us needing more that one court. which i dont think we will this time. theres a second (but pretty small) court about 50m from our main court (if you look at the map its just to the left.

I would love to come and play polo Stateside but im pretty confident we would get our asses handed to us.

Gotta happen sometime, might as well be epic. Who knows, you guys might surprise yourself.

Hey
I think I met you in december at the messenger xmas party in Bronte Beach - I was the one pissed off about having brought my mallet all over the world and not being able to play!!

Good luck with the tournament - did you check that court I mentioned on Wellington St at the corner of West St? Perfect court really.

You rule damon. I was just gunna get some water bottles and put and inch of water in the bottom.

No problem, these were not too exy and will look the part. It might be worth putting a little water or sand in these too though. It even comes with 2 little mini polo sized bowling balls.

You could also use them as cones that you have to negotiate/dribble around without knocking them over, just like police academy driving school, best time wins but 10 second penalty for every pin knocked over?

The day was awesome. But now im ready for a tournament where i can just play. and no stress.

BIG congratulations to Lewis for organising the day, and changing the face of Sydney Bike polo. The flow on effects from this tourney will be great, more recognition from the broader bike community. Lots of people were talking about it at the DEUS swap meet.

It was great to meet a whole new set of players, Melbourne is great, nothing can beat playing good players who you've never met, and style you don't quite know yet.

Yes you deserve to play in a tourney stress free, maybe I should organise one for you...

Unfortunatly we didn't get onto a straight Melbourne VS Sydney, but I'd love to see how that would look... Gundagi perhaps?

Did anyone get photos of the mallet skills? that would have looked great.

More photos just added to bikepolo.com.au and more on the way.

Oh yeah, got my EVBP tee shirt in the mail last week, first outing was on Sunday :) Thanks Lisa!
