This Saturday, June 1st, is the Grand Opening of
Arsenal Park Polo Courts. To mark the occasion,
we are holding our first tournament of the year, The Masters Tourney.
The idea behind this
event is that we wanted to host an event for older players so we made a rule
that the combined age of all the players had to be 90 years or more. So, with
three players per team, many of the players are going to be over 30 years
old. We have a great roster too. Players from all over the Midwest and some
from PA and MD will be playing. It is
sure to be a great day so please come out and join in the fun. Games begin at 10:00am. An after-party will be at the Sinking Ship.
Come on out to the courts this Saturday to help us build our second court.
Green Bean Delivery is donating all the pallets to finish the framing. A big thanks to them!
We will meet at 8:30am. Bring gloves, your favorite beverage, and a truck if you have one.
We will play afterwards.
See you there.

Screw shopping on Black Friday. Remember how much it sucked waiting in line
F-O-R-E-V-E-R. Remember how horrible it
was when you got so bored, hungry and thirsty not even half way through your
shopping that is ruined the rest of the day? You very well know and remember
how much you hate standing in line behind a hundred people who are still in
their pajamas and should have showered before they left the house. Was it really
Have we got a solution for you? Come to Black Friday Bike Polo at Arsenal
Park. It starts at 10am, which means if
you must go shopping early in the morning, you now have an excuse to stop early
and spend some quality time with friends outside with some beers. Bring your shopping buddies too. It will be magical.
Also, sadly winter polo hours are now in effect and we only have polo on Sundays, except for days like Black Friday. Check out our calendar and Facebook page for impromptu pick-up dates.
HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
...or of you are a limey Brit, "Happy Good Riddance Day" or "Dang, I Sure Do Wish I Got On That Boat Day", whichever camp you are in...
