If you happen to be in Milwaukee on Saturday looking for a good time, you should go check out the MBPC Poker Pub Crawl
Last Friday night after the Stupor Bowl 13 pre-registration party at the Nomad, the polo crew, including a number of our friends from Milwaukee, cruised over to the garage and got in some late-night polo on a dark and slippery court. Everyone went down at some point on the slush that was just above the freezing point in the out-of-bounds zone. That said, it was a lot of fun until the ultra-passive transit employee sort of told us to leave, kind of. Well enough, I thought, as it was 2 a.m. and I had to get ready to race. If you’re interested, visit my blargh for a race recap and photos.
Uolmo has made some nice videos in the past and this is no exception. Check out his video detailing his trip from Geneva to Karlsruhe, Germany with his polo team L’equipe The Iron Ponies. As well as being a great editor and cameraman Uolmo, from what I hear, is also one hell of a polo player.
Highlights from the 7th Midwest Bike Polo Champeenships, held in Columbia MO, November 7-8, 2009. Chicago’s ‘Machine Politics’ took home the Jenny Cup. Runners Up were Milwaukee’s ‘Beaver Boys’ & ‘Hot Sauce Enema’ followed by 4th place Madison.
This weekend is the annual Stupor Bowl alleycat. What does that mean to the poloverse? Out of town polo players, that’s what.
Join us at the Nomad on Friday night for pre-reg and then come play Polo with us downtown. We will be playing at the garage. When and for how long depends on getting 6 people rounded up to play. So far we have a few from Milwaukee comitted to playing.
Stay tuned to @pickuppolo on Twitter. We will be TXTing up to the minute updates on when we start and end.
