Today Ringer, Mason, Tiah, Jerry, Wheelie, Brent, and Drew all went out to Pier Park to sweep the heck out of the court in anticipation of next weekends tourney. It was blistering work with 6 brooms and two leaf blowers it took seven people 3 hours of labor to get 70 percent of the moss off the court. Also Polo is at Pier Park tomorrow with brunch at the polo haus at 10:30 to when we get enough people to play wheelie will take your bike no matter what so be at the house early to ensure quick departure. thank you everyone who is helping this tourney become one of the funnest tourneys for Portland history thank you.

This saturday Feb. 28th at 10:30 meeting at the polo haus to caravan out to the court to clean it. We purchased 3 fresh brooms to clean the court along with two leaf blowers and what ever else we have to clean the court. Ringer, Wheelie, and Drew all went out to the court friday to asses the situation on cleaning the court, what they came up with is its really slick out there. they also did i recon mission to a new location but all relized that it was a bad idea due to being sandwiched between kid play toys. but a sweet court at that. will see all of you this weekend or next at the championships.

The rain has been a damper on the whole pump track but that means we get to work on the pump track. We want to build a new line in the middle to change directions and then make an outside line between the track and the shed. March 6th the polo haus is having a party to welcome all the out of towners and to have people over to ride the pump track and play polo in the street. I hope to see all of you here at the track to help make it a even more fun track to ride with multiple lines to ride.

Pump track phase 2 completed make the berms higher and mission accomplished from our heros Eric and Tristan. They used the wonderful afternoon weather and daylight to complete phase 2. But in the mean time everyone else played polo, great turn out we had Seattle, Vancover Bc, and a lot of new Portland members. We all can't wait till the summer days come to dry out the track and start pumping.

This evening at the Polo Haus we got together with the room mates Brent, Ringer, Tristan, Jerry, and Drew along with our friend and fellow polo player Jacki along with portland own Eric with the forman work, we all dug a bunch of holes to make this thing happen tonight. Thank you to all of you for your help. The only thing holding us back from making a for real pump track it faster dirt it seems to be really muddy in the corners. Please look for updates on this such as photos and maybe video Mason im looking in your direction on that one. The real goal of this is to get a huge train of polo bikes going around on the pump track lets make this a reality please all of you come out and ride with us.
