seriously. i know what you are thinking...
"you haven't updated since before the NAHBPCs"
"what are you doing with your life"
well to answer your questions, a lot. lots of tournaments, lots of wheel covers, lots of traveling and a lot of sitting on my ass at the same time.
i just wanted to let you all know, after i finish reading the last 35 pages or so of the final book of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series, i'm gonna sit down, upload all the pictures i have, and then get ya all excited for some really cool developments that will be happening around the new year.
and if everything works out just right, you will be able to place your orders a helluva lot easier and faster.

Giving you all a heads up, I will be attending Worlds! Just for Saturday and Sunday, not going to play but I will be there to watch and mingle. So please, introduce yourself, and if you have any questions or comments let me know! I would love to hear from you guys.
Once World's is over, I will be doing another photo dump of all of the Jinxy cover sightings all the way back from Portland. Before I forget, if you received a Calgary wheel cover, I would love to get some photos if you are using it on your bike.
Another reminder/heads up to all yous, I also print decals, and lately those seem to be the most popular order. 100 2.5" stickers for $35 aint too shabby. 2.5" might seem a little small, but trust me, these are the perfect size for helmets and bikes. If you are going to Worlds, keep you eyes open for my limited run of 100 and if you are playing, you will be getting either a 1, 2 or 3 on your helmet.
So for the time being, check out these great videos. Northern Standard has a very important update on their product, so take a look. If you haven't already seen it, Rawbie has a new video from their polo retreat up north, and Mr. Do posted up some home movies of his trip to Ladies Army.
See ya at Worlds!

I wanted to give a huge thank you to Sacramento for their recent order of covers. Tournaments sometimes put a decent sized dent in my wallet, and it's hard to donate even a few covers. But for NAs I knew I couldn't skimp out on some sweet shwag for the best players in North America. 16 covers and 200 stickers will be on their way to Calgary. Not only am I sponsoring NAs, but Hawaii's first bike polo tournament! So Sacramento contacted me and ordered 20 wheel covers! Helping cover the cost of my sponsored goodies. My good friends in MPLS nabbed a few as well. So all in all, all I have to dish out of my pocket, is the shipping costs. It's a lot of work, and I really don't do it for the cash. It's really you guys that make it possible for people to get such sweet prizes in tournaments
So again, a huge thank you to everyone who has ever bought a custom wheel cover. :D Boy, do I love the poloverse.

Since their first(?) far away tournament attendance, they now have the Tourney Bug. Yes it is contagious, and the only cure for it, is 6 months of planning, sponsor gathering and booze hording. Vegas is now in the works of planning their very own tournament. So for all of you snow birds, keep a look out for a winter tournament in the greatest city in the world.
Vegas cats sure do have some style too. Check out what they rolled in on for Polomania!

Speaking of Polomania, my wheel covers finally arrived Monday morning and will be dished out accordingly to Joe. So those of you who won, or purchased covers, gimme pics! I really wish I was there, and I hope sooner than next year's Polomania, will I be able to visit ya'll in Sac. There is a huge thank you coming your way. To everyone else, just keep your eyes open at NA or Worlds.

The Los Angeles Bike Polo club has entered in a contest presented by Farmer John. We have a chance, with enough votes, to be posted up on billboards along with the other unique local sports throughout Los Angeles. If we hit 300 votes, then we will be entered in a grand prize drawing to win some other pretty nifty schwag.
Okay, okay, you want to hear about the free shit. I understand.
If you click this link right here and then "like" you can then vote for us! If you screen cap your vote, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your mailing address, I will send you a handful of my very own "Give Blood Play Polo" stickers. It ain't much, but hey, clicking a few times ain't much either.
Do you really wanna help support bike polo? Do you love us enough to vote a second time? Well you can! You can text TEAM79 to 80800
We are a little more than 30 votes away from getting the billboard. That's all I really care to get, I figure, our image staring at people on the 405 freeway while they are trapped in traffic, is the best way to really promote our oh so awesome sport. So get to it kids, and remember to share the link on your fb wall.
Here is another great idea from the mind of Jinxy... if you can refer 20 votes, and have your friends send me a screen cap with your name on it, you will get a free wheel cover with the design of your choice. Sound like a good challenge? Let's see it happen!
Thanks again so much to those who have voted, and to those who are going to!

If you have spotted my wheel covers in other tournaments, make sure to snap a pic! Always fun to see my covers in action!
Remember kids, a little more than a week left to get your orders in for NAs! Rep your team right!

Get your wheel covers now!!
Less than a month away until the North American Championships which will be held in Calgary!
This means, you have less than a month to order you and your teams wheel covers! Although they aren't mandatory, don't you want to shine and really show off your colors and spirit in the millions of photos that will be taken during that weekend?
Special for people attending NAs, wheel covers are only $20 each and if you get 4 or more, then they go down to $15! Confirm that you are registered and attending. Also shipping will go down to $5 if they are going to be sent to Canada, $10-15 if you want these ahead of time.
I will be taking orders until July 20th to make sure I have everything printed and then shipped. Due to Canada's postal strike, I have to send these out to Seattle or to someone willing to lug these across the border for me.
So email me quick, even if you just have a few questions. Hope to hear from you soon!
