Tuesday Still at the YMCA 5:30/9:30 pm

This is the Sacred Grass Polo Field...1997/2010
The "Lyons" Den

Eighth inch malot available now/ replaceable end caps.

The YMCA court

Thanks Sveden/ Great R&D

If you want good tourney and intense play, come to the Y. This week I got a text from a youngster that said his legs felt like he had ridin 50 miles on his roadie, after polo at the Y. Usually 8 to 10 show up so there is opportunity to play alot of polo.

We are using net goals donated to us by the y and are the street hockey type. Tall and narrow. With help and design from the Mid-West poloites, I am in the process of building our own. 6'x3'.
I am leaving for Santa Cruz tomorrow and wont have access to the Net. I'll catch up in a week or so. Polo, and a leg of the Tour of Cali is on the agenda while there. Pumped!

Sunday May 2010 Games

Justin "Hot Rod" and Julio
The "Dus"


The famous Mailman Jay move at the Goalie.

Nathon Perryman the Noob!

12 Peeps game to the best practice spot. Hardy and Baseline in Tempe. Play usually starts around 2pm and lasts till 5/6pm. This court is an old, unused tennis court, no nets and the pipes removed. It is situated between the freeway and the Az canal, in the farthest back corner of the Monarch Apt complex. If this place had lights, it would be the best Tempe summer place to play bike polo.

This day started out cool and windy. At one point, I wished I'd left my wheel covers at home. The wind made my bike feel like a sail boat. Very hard to control. It calmed down later in the afternoon.

We had a visitor from Tulsa, Steven Southard. Always great to have good folk jump in and play. Also an FNG showed up to try his hand as well, Nathon Perryman. MTB'er at heart, now hooked on bike polo. Thanks for comin Nate!!

Lets give props to all who came:

Mailman Jay, Piranha#1 and #2. MiniMike, Justinrunns, Hot Rod(Justin), Julio, Nathon, Stevenso, Davy Carfax, Dus, and Me.

Come to Monday Funday at Dorsey and Southern, where the emphasis is on new players with a softer competitive edge. Fun times.
