Nashville Tournament? (UPDATED AGAIN)

My sources tell me that there's a polo tournament brewing in Nashville. Details are scant, but they're slowly being posted on their blog. The only thing I can say for sure is that it's limited zip codes, will probably happen some time in May, and it's the precursor to a Tennessee Tournament in the fall.

My hunch is that this'll be just for Murfreesboro and Nashville, but we can still hope.

UPDATE: Just as I suspected, you have to live between Dickson and Murfreesboro to participate in this one. Suuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

UPDATE ON DA UPDATE: The blog for the tournament has disappeared, as has the link to it from the Nashville Bike Polo blog. Either it's off, rescheduled, or I pissed off one too many people by suggesting that they change their rules to the official NAH rules.

Through the Cracks

In all the hoopla about opening a bicycle path on the Harahan Bridge, I somehow missed this little article. As if opening a link to Arkansas wasn't cool enough, if the planets align, there could be a path all the way north to St. Louis and south to New Orleans. Whoa. Like whoa.

I also recently came across a new-ish blog about commuting in Memphis entitled, appropriately enough, Biking in Memphis. It's run by a professor at the U of M named Doug who is EXTREMELY passionate about not using a car except when absolutely necessary. So check it out!

And remember, keep checking back here for more updates about things that happened like three months ago!
