Midwest Open 2 in MKE results

Another Midwest Open has come and gone. Lots of familiar faces and many new faces. Even several new clubs, Green Bay and Mankato, MN to name a few.

Minneapolis did really well at this tournament. 5 of our 6 teams officially made it to Sunday with a computer hiccup pushing Shark Farts out of the top 32 for Sunday. We had several stand out players which helped propel their teams deep into the double elimination bracket on Sunday. Meg Lee and Aren are two such players. Aren even took home the MVP award for the tournament.

Congrats to Nick T of Minneapolis on his teams’ 7th place finish. He got the call asking him to be a substitute player at 9:30am on Saturday and helped Chris and Nick from Lexington to yet another excellent finish.

Thanks to Milwaukee Bike Polo for hosting and bringing the Midwest together for such a fun time.

North American Championships

This weekend Minneapolis is sending three teams to the North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships in Madison, WI. Stickmata, Purple Pain and the Peter North Stars will compete in the largest hardcourt bike polo tournament ever.

68 teams will compete Friday and Saturday for one of 32 spots in the double elimination bracket on Sunday.

The level of organization the Madison club has put into this tournament is amazing. They already have their refs scheduled! 6 courts, some built by Mpls Bike Polo Inc,  at one site will mean each team will be playing no less than 10 games over the weekend. Add to that the 32 team elimination bracket and you have a recipe for massive amounts of polo.

Wish us luck as we travel to Madison and represent our fair city on an international stage.
