New player day, take 2

Nick

New player day was such a success last time we’re doing it again. Schedule permitting we’d like to be doing these every other Saturday at Corcoran Park from 1pm until we get bored.

Come on down! Bring your friends, gloves and maybe a bike you’re thinking about converting to a polo bike. We’re happy to help with suggestions or to help you source parts to make the switch.

March Sunshine

Its been a warm March here in Minneapolis. A majority of days have been warmer than average and if we go six more days without snow this will be the first March on record. Records dating back to 1840.

This past Sunday Matt Sepeta a friend and roommate of Jonny Freewheel came down with his camera and came up with some stellar photos. Check out this gallery of 70+ photos on his web site.

Check out a few of my favorites from the set below.

Polo in Garfield Park, Chicago

Minneapolis Bike Polo had a great time playing non stop polo in Chicago. Saturday was a little rainy but that didn’t stop 40 some people from running non stop games for 7+ hours.

Sunday was sunny and beautiful. Thanks to everyone that converged for Chris’ birthday weekend. Minneapolis had a blast thanks in part to Rob’s excellent hospitality.

Can’t wait to bring all these players to Minneapolis in May for the Midwest Bike Polo Championships.
