Let's give this a go...

Mt. Cove High parking lot. I know it's not the hub of North End dream timey spot, but we're vagrants. We'll give it a shot, and if it sucks we'll try another spot that is very, very near by. Sorry if this throws anyone's knickers in a knot.

And on a side note, last week I know that there was two calls made to the service counter at George's downtown. Here's the rub down: Don't. Pretty soon them bike geeks will be up to their necks in the crazyness of trying to make everyone's day when their Sunday Greenbelt jaunt goes awry due to catching a flat, or whatever else. Let's not present a situation where someone's feelings get hurt because someone else was short with them on the phone. Get to know your fellow players, get phone numbers, and don't forget- you are in charge of your own reality.

See you Sunday, if not sooner. I'd expect folks down there by three for sure, if not sooner. Till then, go get rad.

That spot sounds fine, just a bit farther of a spin on the lil ass polo gearing.
Also, if your mug is gonna appear on this page as Boise Bike Polo you can expect folks to call you for details if gametimes/locations aren't posted. Just so you know.

Sorry for my previous snide comment. In all honesty, I'd love to field every call when I'm at work, but I can't. Unfortunately when I'm in the middle of something, on the clock, at a business I don't own I don't feel as if it's fair to the people that write my checks to see me drop everything to take a call on polo. The policies I have to abide by dictates that I can't, and I'm sorry that I'm not willing to piss off the people I have to answer to. That's why I said, get to know the other players, make friends and all that other lovey shit. I try my best to keep everyone in the loop, but seeing as volunteers have been slim, but there, it's tough sometimes to make sure everyone gets the word. Perhaps instead of taking on the whole meal here BBP needs a couple of new voices. There's an email under contacts on the profile page for this blog. Submit your case there, or talk to me in person.
I'll try to be diplomatic, and I feel as if this shit is a bit of a democracy, but maybe that's just my sentiment. I've been wrong before.

oh my.. this is supposed to be fun... everyone is welcome... sometimes people are sensitive, we all get that way... i think we all need to work together... community event = we should lean on each other... i am working hard to get us a meeting with parks and rec to get a permanent home... everyone breathe and how about we all just have some fun playing polo.

New Spot -
I like it.

Tommy said...

I took some pictures today of art and his wheel being "fixed" and of some polo play but can't figure out how to post them or can I.
Thanks
p.s. the new spot is good.

Tommy -
Your best bet is to put them on flickr or some other photo host, and link a slideshow here.
The owner(s) of the blog are the only ones who can post them here.

If you need a hand figuring it out, e-mail me at matt.thurston@gmail.com some evening and I'll help you out.

Mountain Cove is the jam. The court angle is a bit goofy but makes for some really fast action.
Let's bbq next weekend.

My sons (Tommy and Chancey) and I, had a great time. The place matters little to us; we just want to play. But, the location was great. Sorry if I offended anyone with my last message. I meant none.

If we may be of service, please let us know.
Mike

I think it is creepy that the last comment was anonymous when it has "loved meaty comfort" in it.
