Dear readers we need to make some new mallets for polo seems to me that people are complaining that they dont have a mallet to play with these days well your in luck we are hosting a mallet making party on tuesday evening at the polo haus. all you need to bring is beer and hopeful ski poles we got most everything else you need on the mallet making list. hope to see you all there should be fun.
I went on a recon mission tuesday night out to the rose city park to check out the tennis court there. what i found when i arrived at 9 ish was two gentlemen playing tennis but they were not very good at all. the lights stay on till 12 and there is no houses within 100 feet of the court or at least out of shouting distance. it took me 24 minutes to ride my polo bike there from the polo haus doind a little dinking around on the way there. Here is a link to the park if you want to see a google map image of it http://maps.google.com/maps?q=rose+city+park+map&oe=UTF-8&ie=UTF8&split=0&gl=us&ei=uMTKSebQMIr2sAP_8JStCg&ll=45.538651,-122.598469&spn=0.000851,0.0018&t=h&z=19 the only real concern i have for this court is if it does rain before polo there the court will be very slippery do to the fact that no one uses the court very much. so next week on april fools day and my sisters birthday we will play out there to check out the court and see if we can get away with playing there. please let me know if you think this is a bad idea because i think its a great one and if you think its to far take the bus there i guess 24 minute rides are great. oh yah i am looking into a polo trailer one that can carry 3 to 4 bikes to and from the court that way wheelie can have a night off once in a while. let me know if any of you see one for cheap and we are still looking for a camera as well. now lets go play polo.l
Wow what a Sunday, we had a great turn out with new people and alot of regulars as well. The weather was great for the most part the court saw its self some hail along with thunder and lightning. Games were played from noon all the way to 7:30. There were plenty of good games going on alot of self take outs I hope Jason is ok after that fall we had the return of Todd Danger back form vacation. I am pretty sure this is legal. Great way to be a good sport Eric.

We got a visit from the landlord today. He was not happy. The pump track has to be leveled, as well as the yard totally cleaned up. We're gonna need lots of help as he gave us two weeks to complete, or we get our final notice. How about tomorrow, Saturday we have a work party and get this going. This is not something we should put off at all.
Just picked up a bunch of new fresh off the press Axles of Evil shirts. The shirts are all olive green with your choice of one of four color ink. They are going for 10 bucks and will be on sale all weekend long or till they run out. Get them now really soon they will go fast.
