Lob Shot!

I have been trying to post only things pertinent to getting polo started in Honolulu as of recently however I came across this video and needless to say it had to be posted. Crazy ball control and team work. How often do you think they practice this?

Ski poles are here

In order to help with the mallet situation I have just recieved 5 more ski poles from Philly. It took them a while to get here but they made it. Ill be stopping by the Kickstand today at some point and possibly using their drill to build these mallets up as my drill died on me making my last batch of mallets...however Ive also had the idea of holding off on making this batch and letting people who want to build their own do so. I will discuss with Cyrus at the Kickstand to see if I can do so at his shop with interseted parties...Kind of like a mallet making party with beer of course. Lots of beer.

Spencers broken mallet...

Flicks from Aloha Sunday

Here are some flicks from the event. My camera died so I'm hoping to find some flicks floating online as well. Thanks again to all those who came out to support. And while its been a short time I feel like polo is on the pick up and I am getting good enthusiasm from people. The make shift field worked out well for the event. I should still have a batch of ski poles on my doorstep hopefully this week since they didnt come last week. When they arrive a mallet making party with beer and friends sounds like a good rainy day thing to do since its been wet this week. Any who flicks:

Aloha Sunday

So Aloha Sunday went down as a success yester day thanks to the efforts of Sau and Grant. It was an Aloha Fixed event that HNL bike polo came out to for pick up games. Sau surprised us with prizes so if the figureing out how they were won and distributed seemed odd its because we werent prepared for anything more then pick up games. Thanks to all those who participated and made the day a success for bike polo. The make shift tournament esque day made things a bit more interesting. Flick will be posted up some time this week.

I believe this is the role call for prizes for the first place team
1.Nate-aero bars
2.Travis-timbuk2 bag
3.Micheal-newest cog issue, drink holder, and a grip o stickers

Polo Sunday

Lyan came out and shot some footage before he jumped in on a couple games. More photos to come of this game and hopefully some revamping of the site a bit. You know to add more spice to life. In the mean time check the short.

HNL Bike Polo March 7th

INFO: 4pm @ Makiki District Park on Sunday March 7th

So the deal is I got the ball, cones for goals, and should have enough various types of mallets to play 3v3 games. If you have your own or extra mallets bring em. For those who havent played before I will go over rules and how to play at the court...but for those who want to know what their getting into here are the basics

The Basics Rules:
1)3v3 - teams chosen at random by who shows up
2)If you dab (foot down) you touch out at defending goal before re-entering play.
3)The ball can be moved with any part of the mallet but goals will only count if ball is shot with the small hollow face of the mallet.
4) Play like contact (mallet to mallet, bike to bike, person to person) with no intent to physically harm an individual...

So thats the deal I will try to get more mallets made before Sunday and post flicks later this week of prototype mallets I have.

questions or comments feel free to leave em or email...even if it is just to say you plan on showing up. Newbies dont be shy its all in fun.
