Poster is courtesy of Patricia Youn from Toronto. I mean who doesn't love Tank Girl. Thanks Pat.

woop!!! : )

of course ill be there :)

where's the token turkey? Look wicked though. thanks

You're all a bunch of sitting turkeys, Robbie Boards and I are making a polo pilgrimage to our home town and we gonna stuff you, carve you, and serve y'all up on platter.By the end of the weekend WUPAss will resemble a flock of fowl running around with your heads cut off!

I look forward to it Benjamin. It would be an honour to have a founder of the great Tanked Givin' return to this event.

Thanks Eryn, I appreciate you keeping the dream alive, and hope to see you in my neck of the woods (either at the NA's, the worlds, or on our new court in East Van) sometime soon!

We are trying for NAs we have one more shot at a qualifier. East Van Crown is pretty real option for us this year too.

i might be able to swing either east van [could actually play polo] or worlds [could watch/meet tonne of polo folks]..

The Winnipeg Bike Polo association is getting pretty excited about Tanked Givin'. Make sure to mark your calendars for this one. It will be one serious polo party weekend. On that note we are also looking for sponsors if you want to get involved let us know at tankedgivin@gmail.com.

Come to Winnipeg. This weekend is going to be a ton of fun.

# of teams?

I just did the math, this year is actually tanked givin' 6, get your shit together winnipeg

Benjamin. It would be Tanked Givin' 6 if it was actually an annual event. A year was missed when you moved to vancouver. So 6 years have passed but only 4 events have been thrown. Unless I am actually just wrong about this. How many did you do?

So Stoked!

Preying mantis on the court and I can't be beat...

There will be breakfast and lunch at the courts on both Saturday and Sunday. Make sure you show up early to get Jonnie's Sticky Buns and Green Bean Coffee for breakfast. There will be vegan buns as well. I believe vegan chili is being made for Lunch this weekend. So if you can bring a mug and bowl to eat/drink out of it would be appreciated. We may not have any disposable dishes for you.
