New Polo Deets!

We've got a new spot for polo goin'! From now on, we're gonna be playing in the Bluff City Sports parking lot:

Anthony was nice enough to hand saw a bunch of wooden pallets to make borders, so yeah, it's gettin' a bit more legit. He also can get out a bit earlier than I can, so from now on Polo'll be starting at 6 pm on Sundays. We're also trying to add a day, and right now we're trying Wednesdays at 7 pm.

The new court is MUCH narrower and a bit shorter than the church lot; definitely feel the difference. Time to bust out the 19 tooth cog - I felt kinda gimped last night.

If you're one of the people that can only come out late (Andy, Nathan mostly I think), I'm still down to play after y'all get outta work, just need to find a few other people who are as well.

SO! To summarize:

What: Bicycle Polo!
Where: Bluff City Sports Parking Lot.
When: 6 pm Sundays, 7 pm Wednesdays.
Who: YOU!

Court, Polo, Vacation

We're headed out the door to go camping for a week, but just wanted to post a quick update on a few things.

We may or may not be back in time for Polo next week, but Anthony has said that he'd host it if we weren't. He's got three of our mallets, so yeah, don't worry if you don't have one. He also mentioned that he might want to start earlier - say around 6 pm. But you should probably confirm that with him before you head out. We also talked about getting together a Memphis Polo blog, so yeah, be on the lookout for that.

Lastly, our court date for obstructing traffic was this morning - dismissed, as we suspected. I'm glad it's over, but it's still not very satisfying. We pretty much just told the lady (judge? clerk? I dunno exactly who she was) what happened and she dismissed it, adding that she didn't want to see us up there any time soon for the same thing - a bit of a jab considering we DIDN'T break the law. It kinda felt like they were saying, ok, you broke the rules but we'll let it slide. But I'll take what I can get from Lady Justice.

But all that's behind us now and it's time to relax for a week, so adios!

PS - Don't wear shorts to court.

PPS - Also don't take any bike tools with you because they are DEADLY WEAPONS! That includes tire levers and pumps!

+ = TONIGHT! 8 pm! 1st Baptist Church!

I've been thinking about changing the day of the week, or possibly just adding another day - Anyone have any particular day/time they like? I was thinking Wednesday sometime in the evening, just because Revolutions has their ice cream rides on Sunday and we have people that can't get there 'til late. But nothin's set in stone right now.

Frame for Sale!!

Hey people, I'm selling my old frame for cheap!


frame for sale!

I'm asking 100 for the frame and fork, and another 20 if you want the brake.

brake for sale!

for sale frame in action!

This is an awesome frame and the only reason I'm not still using it is because I got my new bike kind of on accident. It's great for tricks and can barspin 700c with a 23c tire. Check out the craigslist post here, where I have my number and a link to the specs. Let me or Brett know if you're interested!
