Polo in the Pete 4
Saturday, July 30 · 10:00am – 10:00pm
JW Cate Rec Center. Corner of 22 Ave N & 58 St.
THE TIME HATH COMETH!!!
After talking out the final details with the local polo rats last night, we have settled on a throw in style tournament. Pretty simple, but this changes a few things about the event….
1-$1 per player registration fee. Wanna play? Give me $1
2- the event start time has been moved back 2 hours(from 12 to 10 am)
3-to participate in the tournament your mallet must be in the pile by 11 am NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!
In order to ensure that we have enough time to play out the tournament fully we have to be punctual guys, so I don’t wanna hear any bitching and moaning if you didn’t make it in time to get your mallet in the shuffle. It has to be this way to ensure we get the tournament moving on time and everyone has the same chances in the shuffle as everyone else. The idea being that all teams comes out equal (hopefully with no super duper teams lol)
So all participating mallets will be throw into the same pile and shuffled at 11 am sharp. Afterward the tournament will commence promptly @ 1130am. Take that half hour to get acquainted with your new team and come up with a badass team name, I expect creativity!! Game length will depend on final body count. Thats basically it!
Full color Polo in the Pete 4 shirts will be available for $15 (limited quantities)
Oh yeah and all the $’s from the registration fees go to the winning team….no big deal, but at least it’s something.
Aside from all that crap, lets have fun yall! We wanna have a full day of fun though so if you’re drinking keep it on the way down low (coosies or whatever) and clean up after yourself as the day goes. Dispose of empties when they are empty ya dig? No leaving trash on the ground until the end of the day! If you have tents, blankets, coolers, folding chairs (or chairs of any kind) by all means bring em out and let’s have ourselves a great day of polo……
…….POLO IN THE PETE 4 !!!
Polo tonight northwest park. come out and play!

“I think the first nets at a major tournament was at NACCC 2008 in Chicago. They were PVC, held down with sandbags, and controversial. We saw a few more in 2009, like at the Grief Masters in Karlsruhe (see the yellow, folding nets below).
Nets became really common in 2010 at tournaments like ESPI, Bench Minor, East Van Crown, NAHBPC, Midwest Open, etc.
And they are now mandated at NAH sanctioned tourneys. But there is some flexibility in the NAH rules, which currently state: “Goals should be no larger than 200 cm x 95 cm and no smaller than 180cm x 85 cm”. For those that prefer inches, that’s minimum 70 inches wide, maximum 78 inches wide. minimum 33 inches, maximum 37 inches.
Being that I have played with nets,cones,cones W/nets,official hockey goals,and even tin cans, I really love the use of nets over everything. With the nets you don’t have to worry about reaching through the cones, or having a dead ball this creates one less problem in the game. The Midwest tourney this past year was held in Lexington,KY and there goals are top notch, compared to hockey goals the nets are a little shorter and very taught. In the Ol’ days Clearwater played on a hockey rink and the nets were very loose and the ball would just get tangled. If you are interested in creating a set of nets for your court follow the link at the top to LeagueofBikePolo.
