Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic
June 5th, 2011
Governors Island, New York
Last year this was the same weekend as ESPI5 so I missed it but I was at the first year and second. I highly recommended making it to this because watching polo in New York City is not very common. The 2008 event was the first in 70 years and there was only about 150 people there. The 2009 event was the second match and about 10,000 people were in attendance because of some prince from some other country was here playing. From what I heard last years event was about the same. That means get there early. Or just skip the crowds.
Australasian Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships
May 7th – 8th, 2011
I like that in Australia they have it together enough to just make a yearly distinction versus doing the first, second, ect. for their Championships. That’s pro.

Each GM will make eight selections, in turn, from the registered players to create a nine player team. GMs are allowed to trade any drafted player on their team, during the trade window. GMs cannot trade themselves.
The Draft registration opened January 23rd, 2011
And closes 3 pm EST, Friday February 11th
153 players registered.
Side note, Kev set up a ranking system for 25 people he selected to each rank their top 25 picks based on who they would “want to play with on a 3 person team for a regular tournament”.
The Draft date is Feb. 15th, 9 pm EST
This is only 4 days after Reg. close for the GMs to study the field and will happen live on the Google spreadsheet.
The trade window will be open for two weeks after the draft.
The first Bench Minor was in New York City and I believe Bench Minor 3 will be in Ottawa
