New Blood

Brace yourselves for the influx of new players out there, I'm far off and even here I'm getting word about the Adelaide polo scene!
I just received this piece on our little addiction in the latest edition of the FiveThousand newsletter. The article is expertly written by everyone's favourite nice guy: Eeno, and sums the game up nicely.
If you don't already subscribe to FiveThousand I suggest you do so, it's a great way to find out about the local happenings.

As an aside: the scrolling background image on the page I grabbed is by another local bike enthusiast; Sam Chisolm

San Diego Polo Crew

I was down in San Diego over the weekend and managed to find my way out to join in with the local polo crew. It was a small turnout with only 5 players out there, myself included, but we played a rotating game with 5 players [when the team with 3 scored, the scorer would switch teams.
They were very welcoming to the new guy and I even managed to score a few goals against them!
It was a great afternoon with some fun polo and awesome guys. Thanks lads!
