NAHBPC - Photos Part I

Whew! It was a long, hot weekend (thankfully only a few people were carried off by the mosquitoes) but easily the best weekend of polo i've ever experienced. Madison deserves endless praise for putting on the best, most well organized tournament I've ever been too. From the free beer to the digital leaderboard everything was top notch. And 6 courts! Even though a couple of them were a little rough, there was plenty of space for quick swiss rounds and simultaneous pickup. I got to meet and play against some of the best players in the world, camp with a bunch of crazy canucks, and just enjoy the company of my many fellow poloeurs.

Great city, great play, great people. That's bike polo for ya.
