Editor’s Note: A couple weeks ago Ignacio “Nacho” Pelayo of the crowd favorite team Nino Dios contacted me with interest in sharing information about the children’s bike polo school that he was helping organize. After I told him that I would love to have him share all of the info with his, he sent back the following write up. Not only that, he did it in both Spanish and English. So thank you for reaching out to me Ignacio, and I hope you all enjoy his piece:
One of Europe’s top bike polo photographers, Liv Minh, is looking to bring his hardcourt bike polo photographs from the digital to the physical, and he is looking to the bike polo community for help. Liv set up a crowd sourcing campaign on Kiss Kiss Bank Bank to make it easier for people to help him out. If this seems like a project you’d like to get behind, you can find information on Liv’s project HERE!
I know this isn’t directed related to bike polo, but I know there are some kick-ass bike polo ladies out there who would love to take advantage of this opportunity.
We want to send a warm and welcome HAPPY MESSENGER APPRECIATION DAY to all of the bike polo playing bicycle couriers out there in the world. We thank you for all of the work you have done. Without messengers, we wouldn’t have this amazing sport that we are all in a love/hate relationship with.
A special ‘Thank you’ is due to Timothy Mason and Matt Messenger for being the only original 6 who continue to play the sport to this day! You are both living legends.
