Hey all bike polo’ers,
I have let this site lay dormant for over a year now and I am not currently making, selling, or otherwise distributing mallets or other physical polo goods. Rather, I have dedicated the majority of my free time to photography and related educational pursuits. Daily photos with commentary at www.gustavhoiland.com
The following are links to PDF files containing collections of photos from recent bike polo tournaments. View them in your browser or download for keeps!

Registration goodness should start around high noon tomorrow at the Allston court. (Click for map) All teams must be registered by Friday night, and paid up if possible since our fee collectors don’t work weekends… ok that’s not true because that’s me and I”ll be around… but still folks, make it easy on me! Teams will get a call from the organizers Friday night with info on what bracket they’re scheduled to be in on Saturday. AM bracket starts at 10:00AM – and showing up late will cost you valuable game time… and probably irk dah organizers.
$60 cash per team, gets you into the tournament, shirts, and other goodness.
Seattle, Vancouver, Sarasota, and Pensacola were all in town Thursday night for some straight up pickup at the Allston court.

It appears that a lot of people have been missing the link to the ESPI map. Sliiiiightly concerned ’cause it’s pasted all over the Schedule page – so if you haven’t looked that over yet please do! The more familiar everyone is with how this tournament is to be run the more beautifully it’ll all go.
The map should start fully zoomed in on the main tournament court in Allston. The second biggest point of interest is the second location on the list on the left, “Conway Park.” This is the second tournament court.
All teams will be contacted Friday night, probably quite late (but not into the wee hours), and informed with where and when their team will be playing. It is the team’s responsibility to show up at their assigned court on time so that we can get the show on the road! If I don’t have any contact info for your team, pleaaaaase email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with at least one of your phone numbers.
Ok ok ok ok, ’nuff whining. Here’s Nick doing a wheelie with a finger in his nose.
