The Moment You Have All Been Waiting For!

Rawbie Boardz Show - EP4 from Ken Regehr on Vimeo.

Rawbie has finally completed episode 4 of his awesome polo pod cast! Better yet, he has a new and improved intro that I freaking adore. Well done Rawbie and Ken!
In this episode it features the winner of the Wheel cover video contest we started a few months back. And you guessed it... Mr. Do! Once again, pwning the whole polo world with his mad video skillz.

Rawbie, it truly was a pleasure drawing these up for you and FatCat. Now you and FatCat can take to the courts, and slay all those who dare play you on your new "World's First Official Polo Court"!
I am sending Rawbie some more decals of his logo, so maybe you can sweet talk him into sending you some. But first, please donate to the "Get Rawbie some Ghaddam Teeth" fund, or just send him some love and condolences for FatCat.

Here is the director's cut to Mr. Do's wheel cover video!

Congrats man. Now back off so someone else can get some free wheel covers!

Thanks guys for your time, effort and creativity! Stay tooned for the next random thing I come up with to give away more free shit.

Polo Service Announcement

Sveden needs wheel covers

There are still a lot of you out there that play without covers. Either, you can't handle the wind, or you ride to the court and the drag just sucks. But seriously, get some wheel covers, they work. Suck it up if it is too windy. You will become a better player because of it.
At Ladies Army III, Jasmine got her foot caught in someone's wheel, and it tore the shit out of it. They had to remove the wheel just to free her foot. Wheel covers people. Save the spokes, save the wheel, save the goal, save the limbs.

There are a ton of options out there now. The cloth Burro Bag cover that can be slapped on and off in a jiffy, or the new indestructible HDPE covers by Fixcraft means you can drill a bunch of 2" holes throughout it to let that God awful wind through.
Even good ol' cheap ass coroplast can have 2-3" wind holes cut out. With a simple slice on one side of the cover, you can even fold it in half for easy transport.

So quit the excuses, unless you like truing your wheel all the time, letting balls slip through your spokes, or gettin' some blood on your hubs. GET SOME WHEEL COVERS!

This has been a Polo Service Announcement

Ladies Army III Austin

Sure a little late on getting you all the fun news on the latest Ladies Army, but hey, I was waiting for photos.
Over 3 days of hangin out with some of the greatest ladies of polo, is something I don't think I will ever forget. Well, the parts I can remember anyways, thanks to Lone Star Beer. :D
This tournament was one of the biggest orders of wheel covers I have had yet. 13 Ladies Army Covers, 4 "Ignore Alien Orders", 2 very beautiful custom Ladies Army covers for Mo, and of course the "Ladies Love Mr. Do" cover as a big 'ol thank you for him taking the time to come all the way to Austin and filming the games.
There is so much to say, and I think it all has been said here at the Ladies Army Thread
Austin, Mo, Jaz, Meg and all the ladies who attended. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend. Can't wait to play with ya'll again soon!

And now for some more photos
