NAHBPC Fundraiser Party and Raffle! 07/19

As you may know, we are hosting a big-deal tournament, 2013 North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships, later this summer. In preparation for this event, we’d like to share the party vibe with you and give you all an opportunity to pitch in, and well, mostly, we just want to party with you.

Dangerous Man Brewing Co has been gracious enough to allow us to host a party fundraiser and will be providing drink specials and ambiance. We have a silent auction and raffle, with prizes featuring brand new Adam Turman prints hot off the press, Banjo Brothers bags full of swag, as well other rad, bikey stuff for you to win. You may even win a bike.

If you prefer to start your party with some speedy competition and sweaty shorts, go ahead and win the Minneapolis Bike Polo Alleycat Fundraiser for NAHBPC2013,

Start: Corcoran Park 3334 20th Ave S Minneapolis, MN 55407, end up at Dangerous Man Brewing first, and strut around bragging about it all night. All racers get a free raffle ticket.

Buy a few raffle tickets, some locally crafted brew, and get your party on with the raddest folks around. Please help us show our guests coming for this tournament how Minneapolis rules the school when it comes to bike events (I’m looking at you, Portland, you know MPLS rules, you know it.)

SPECIAL GUESTS, Up the Mountain Down the Mountain and Event MC Brian Beatty.

Fundraiser for livestream coverage of the NAH tour 2013 by Mr Do!

Our very own Mr. Do will be touring the major NAH tournaments this year, providing us, through the intimacy only the glow of our computer monitors can provide, a livestream of hot polo action at bikepolo.tv.

Check it out the project, here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/livestreamed-bike-polo-championships

Everything adds up, so donate what you can! ‘Do’ swag upon various giving levels include can coozies and t-shirts designed by Mr. Do’s daughter!

Friends in cool places

I woke up this morning to find this in my Twitter stream.

Perplexed as to what in the hell my name is doing up there with champions I fed it through Google translate and it gave me this:

Midwest championship this weekend or so? Beaver Boys, Machine Politics, Maija’s team, Sven’s team. . . A battleground is.

Well shucks, Riki! Thanks for the mention. Minneapolis Polo will do our best to make you proud.

Can’t wait to meet Riki and other Japanese poloists this September at the World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships in Seattle.

Friendlies this Saturday in Minneapolis

We are hosting Friendlies on Saturday the 16th of October in Minneapolis. 1pm until dark. Click here for directions to the park.

We will be playing polo, hanging out and grilling food all afternoon. The forecast calls for a gorgeous day.

Madison, MKE, Chicago, Duluth, Fargo, LaCrosse, Menominee, Mankato, Mason City and whoever else are all invited!

Matt H and maybe another MKE poloist are coming to town and we are throwing a party.
