Lets start a team!

January 30, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSergio Pineda

Consider me a hungry hungry hipoloer! I am in for Tally, got the weekend off already.

January 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNick

I think we should try to get more people involved. Have at least 2 full dedicated teams. Especially since we've gone to 2 tournaments with only 2 MBP people each. Both times, at least 6 people were down to go and slowly dropped off one by one until there was only 2, forcing us to pick a random 3rd to make the team. That is no way to compete. Where's the love? If we are serious about going and competing and even trying to win, then we should get 2 strong teams and practice as a team.. a lot. Who of our best players do you think would be interested? And let's reach out to them.

January 31, 2012 | Registered CommenterEric Madrid

im down for tally also im going to ask for that weekend off work, ill play on anyones team

February 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAdrian V.

Agreed! Its time we showed up strong!
What night would people want to practice? I down almost any weeknight. We need to really practice delivering the ball with accuracy. Wild shots and weak passes will just be turnovers.
Practice should also include going to Ft Laud and playing on a real court (and there's lots to learn from K, Danny Wood, etc).

February 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterChris

Definitely. I'm down to meet up almost any time to practice. If we get at least 6 serious people, we could make 2 teams and play against each other. We'll find our strong and weak points and maybe even create one "dream team" out of the six practicing. Danny and K are down to practice too.

Also, I've gone ahead and located actual rinks in Miami that we can practice in. This would be good in addition to going to Ft. Lauderdale on Thursdays.

Actual Rinks in and around Miami

Check all the options on the left column of this Google Maps List. Who's down to scout out these courts with me before we decide to meet at one of them?

February 3, 2012 | Registered CommenterEric Madrid

Sergio and I are going to scout the rinks tomorrow, Tuesday, to see which is the best option for us to start practicing. The goal is to start a Wednesday rink day for anyone interested in getting some practice in for the tournament. If anyone wants to join us, just let me know.

February 6, 2012 | Registered CommenterEric Madrid

i think tamiami park would be perfect for wednesday practice, we run fiu bike repair in the mornings so we can fix your polo bikes before practice(theres a small charge for parts if your not a student) and even get a few new people into the sport.
fiu bike repair closes at 3pm. i will be there tomorrow and i will check the court out to see if its even playable

February 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAdrian V.

Awesome. Let us know! Thanks.

February 8, 2012 | Registered CommenterEric Madrid

lets do this maybe we should take a train but im down to but in for gas

February 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSergio Pineda

so i checked out the hockey rink in tamiami park, its clean and has a good surface theres also two metal hockey goals that may be a little to big but not by much, the only bad thing is i dont think the lights are working so its daylight hours only. we should play there next Wednesday.

February 9, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAdrian V.

If I'm not working, I'm totally down. We need at least 6 people. Who's in?

February 9, 2012 | Registered CommenterEric Madrid

The Miami Team, 'Tres Leches' is Sergio Pineda, Chris French and Eric Madrid. Andrew Feher will be joining us and providing his truck for the trip. We will be leaving Friday at 4pm and driving into the night. 8 hours straight. Chris from Orlando might be needing a ride and Nick wants to join us as well. We can only fit 5 in the truck, so we will have to see if Chris finds a ride as he is competing so definitely needs to go. If so, Nick will be our 5th on the trip. The Tournament events will begin Saturday at 9am. Sergio will be putting us up at his friends place in Tally. We will be heading back Monday morning. Any questions?

February 21, 2012 | Registered CommenterEric Madrid

Great logistics gentlemen, thanks. I got gas and snack money.
Where will we be leaving from?
Im getting antsy!

February 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterChris

Andrew works until 4pm. So if we could all be ready to go at my place by then, that'll be best. Cool?

February 22, 2012 | Registered CommenterEric Madrid

Gentlemen, with my work schedule the way it is I would not be home until 430/5 on Friday and need to be back latest late Sunday night! Sad it may be but I will be joining in our future endeavors! Cheers boys and give em hell!!!

Here is the weather breakdown for this weekend:

Fri - 70/44 60%
Sat - 61/41 20%
Sun - 63/52 30%
Mon - 72/55 40%

You guys might want to where gloves while playing this weekend. If you get hit in the hand its going to hurt more than usual. Pack for chilly weather. Has anyone heard from OChris?

February 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAndrew Fehér

Sorry to hear that Nick. Hold it down in Miami for MBP BBQ IX!

I spoke to Orlando Chris, he gets out of work at 7, 8 latest, but we'd be getting to Orlando closer to 8:30 so that works out. He'll split gas with us. He doesn't have a bike and is backing light so we won't need much more space in the back for him.

So the plan so far is we all are ready and packed at my house by 4pm so when Andrew gets out he just scoops us up and we hit the road. Sound good to everyone?

February 23, 2012 | Registered CommenterEric Madrid

Good morning TRES LECHES!!! This is your Friday morning weather update. Not too much fluctuation:

Fri - 78/46 60%
Sat - 62/43 20%
Sun - 56/50 50%
Mon - 70/57 50%

See you all around 430.

February 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAndrew Fehér

February 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSergio Pineda

March 7, 2012 | Registered CommenterEric Madrid
