To Austin With Love

I just finished cutting out 40 wheel covers by hand. Boxed up about 20 of those to be shipped to Austin. 10 of those will be part of the Ladies Army sponsor package. 300 (200 for LA) decals are chopped and ready. I have another set of decals I am currently working on. I can finally breathe a little. Now all I have to worry about is my game skillz.

The decals look great, and are easy to do. So if you have a tournament, and want a set of 100 stickers, full color, contour cut, sweet laminate, and your custom design, I can do them for $50
If you remember from the EHBPCs, they had (1) (2) (3) stickers made for the player's helmets. So keep that in mind when you are planning your next tournament!

Alright, time for me to collapse. Headin' up to San Francisco tomorrow for a last minute mini tournament!

So sorry for the absence! All at once, I started getting emails from everyone putting in their orders for wheel covers! So today, finally, after 3 weeks of back and forth with a million people, the print order has been submitted! 40 wheel covers(20 of which will be donated as prizes) and 300 decals!
Even in the middle of all of this, I received an email from someone in New York wanting some wheel covers for his dahon mu p8.

He doesn't play polo, but want's something to really make this whip pop! Can't wait to see the photos!

I have a few covers on order for the PDX Young Retiree's Tourney that is happening at the end of May. I have stopped taking orders for Ladies Army, because once I have everything printed and then the rounds cut, I have to ship everything ahead to Austin. For the PDX tournament I can take orders for those until mid May. Those will be delivered straight to PDX, so all money orders need to be made ahead of time.

On a quick note, a huge thank you to all of the people in the Poloverse that made it possible for Mr. Do to travel to Austin in a few weeks! You all just made that weekend even more perfect!
Stay tooned for the very special top secret cover and stickers I have made for his special appearance!

Send Mr. Do to Austin!

In my last post I shared the promo video for the Ladies Army filmed by our own Mr. Do, from MPLS. Turns out, the ladies want him, and want him bad. So MidwestMeg has decided to start a fundraiser to send Mr. Do to Austin so he can cover the talented ladies competing in this year's tournament.

If you would like to contribute to getting Mr. Do out of MPLS for the weekend to return home with footage of girl on girl action, you can donate some green to Meg's paypal ( so she can get his ticket.

And after you dig in your pockets, check out Mr. Do's Vimeo page. He's got a lot of new stuff up!

In 31 days, my happy ass will be in Austin, Texas for the 3rd annual Ladies Army tournament. Already 18 teams are registered, and the doors aren't closed yet. This will be the first 2 day tournament, with the usual swiss rounds and double elimination. While Mr. Do was in Little Rock for the South Central qualifier, he captured the images that confirm the rumors of how bad ass these ladies are, and how they took the tournament by storm.
Without further a-Do, here is a wonderful promo for the Ladies Army happening this May.

And since I will be attending the Ladies Army, a reminder if I may; I will be sponsoring a handful of covers for the winner's circle. And for the first time, putting extra LA covers up for sale while all proceeds go to the Austin club. So if you want to purchase a cover, please email me and put in your order. I have to ship these out ahead of time.

Keep swingin' those mallets, ladies. See you in Texas!

Custom Head Badges by BlindSight

Not enough people know about these, and all people in the poloverse should.
Beautifully crafted acid etched brass badges are the perfect way to show your love and loyalty to your club.
Wheel covers are temporary, these are like a tattoo that will never leave your trusty steed. BlindSight on the League of Bike Polo is the creator of these masterfully crafted pieces. Jewelers have quoted these from $50 - 75 but he so graciously makes these for around half that ranging from $20-30 (depending on difficulty and cut)
Here are a few examples of his work

So be sure to drop BlindSight a line and show some love for our fellow artist and poloist.


Rawbie is on the Move

Rawbie's wheel covers arrived in Seattle yesterday, and now they are in the hands of Medic Mike, who has the privilege of smuggling them across the border to East Vancouver. Stay tooned for the next episode of the Rawbie Boardz Show for the announcement of the winners of the wheel covers! There will also be a nice little mention of the winner of the Best Poster of 2010, Matt Bowen.

I have also been looking into a ecommerce type of website to make purchasing a little easier. Stay tooned for that

Til next time
