Reconstruction

Evan, Rinzin, and I built a ton of new boards today. Also in the mix are lacrosse gloves, a new hockey stick, more balls (since we broke two last night), tons of new mallet material, new boards, curved corners and a plethora of other things. Plus we have lots of new people interested and coming to polo. Even though this is our "winter" season we've had more players than ever!





Sadly though, one of our best player is leaving us....
Francis just finished his undergrad and is moving on to bigger and better things. We'll all really miss him, but it's not like he's dead or anything...well...he is moving back to St.Louis, so it's not really much better! Naw, just an excuse to play more polo with our many friends in Missouri!



No polo on the 24th and 26th. But Monday the 28th is a go at the Wright tennis courts, and Thursday the 31st we plan on playing 2-6 at the big court across from the Hospital. January 1st is our date with Indy from 4-7 at the Harrison Center. Very excited 'bout that!

2010 shall be the year of bike polo! Here you me.

New group pic from two weeks ago (roughly?). Lots of great people coming out have been coming out!


^^This is the most recent pic, taken this past Monday night. Just for the record I'd like to point out that we had more players than there were degrees on the thermometer! [ <20 people, >20 degrees ]

  1. How the heck did you guys break two balls in one night?!

  2. Anyone look into motocross gear as far as gloves and such? I'm sure the palm wear would be nothing. I'm gonna try and go to Revsports and see what they have.

  3. The orange balls started breaking around 20 degrees, but yellow/green ones were just too light to use...

    I never thought about motocross gear, but that'd be perfect! If you run across any elbow/forearm guards then let me know.

    Ashley, did you see all that yellow pipe in the background! :)

  4. revsports has a few elbow guards but most hard really tough plastic. (might be overly hardcore against pickup but great for tourney) Gloves are a go for me, have them the first probably
