The third installment of the Ladies Army gets under way this weekend in Austin, TX. Kat is headed down to Austin to represent Minneapolis Bike Polo. She is teaming up with Cara and Lisa by way of Vancouver in a field of almost 20 all female bike polo teams. This will be Kat’s second time competing in the Ladies Army. Last year she traveled to NYC to compete. Show them how we do it Minneapolis, Kat!
If you haven’t watched Mr Do’s Ladies Army preview video, go do that now. There is so much interest in this tournament the polo community pooled its resources and bought Mr Do a plane ticket to Texas. No really! They did. Have fun Mr Do and bring back documentation of this amazing tourney.
Team 1 x 1 is road tripping this weekend to Little Rock, Arkansas for the South Central Bike Polo Championships. Dustin, Sven and Nick D were one of the lucky 9 teams from outside the region to get a spot. As you can see in this map, the South Central region is geographically very large. It encompasses a large chunk of states in the Southern middle of our country, as well as the entire country of Mexico.
Minneapolis’ Git Sum vs St Louis’ King Shin Beef, at the Midwest Open Bike Polo Tournament
Definitely the most exciting game of polo Minneapolis has ever been a part of. Do yourself a favor and watch in full screen mode. Minneapolis has faced up against King Shin Beef in many tournaments rarely, if ever, getting the best of them. This is the last game of round robin play on Saturday. Minneapolis was 2-1-1 and this point and needed a win to crawl out of the very competitive afternoon bracket.
They got the win and advanced to Sunday’s tournament. Placing in the top 16 of 50 teams. Congrats Git Sum! You made us all proud.
