Winter Polo Habits

The season never ends its just gets colder.

Over 9 man/woman hours to free half the court of a blanket of 1375 cubic feet of snow. We received about 6″/15.5cm of snow on Friday.  Sadly the snowblower would not start on Saturday. Sunday we got it running and worked at clearing the rest of the court.

Played some cutthroat 1 vs 2 and a knife-fight style 2 v 2 game with a single cone as the goal.

Playing in the winter is a whole new ballgame. For one thing every beverage has a 15 minute shelf life before it turns to a soda slushy. For another body to body contact is all but abandoned by the players. Ball handling, positioning and 5-hole shots are the name of this slippery game.

Plus we get to build quinzees.
