Black Star Bags LA6 Sneak Peek

June 7, 2014
Ladies Army 6 Top Tube Pads

Ladies Army 6 Top Tube Pads

This morning Black Star Bags gave us a sneak peek of the top tube pad mallet holders they they donated to Ladies Army 6. The top tube pads, as you can see, feature the snake design seen on the Ladies Army 6 tournament poster. You can tell that Black Star put a lot of thought and care into making these; those guys continue to amaze us with their graphic design work!  I wish I could play in the tournament so that my team could walk about with them. I hear rumors of them donating some to the 2014 NAHBPC this year, so maybe I’ll have a chance to win some there.

If you like them as much as us and don’t want to wait to buy them, then head to the Black Star Bags website and pick up one for yourself, or three for your whole team!

Guts_and_Glory_Bike_Polo_Shaft

For a couple years now Magic Bike Polo has reigned over the English bike polo equipment market. With one of the co-owners moving to Toronto last year, they look to be slowly taking the world by storm as well. But with the outward expansion having them focus outside the UK, there is a new company that looks to take over their English market.

Rising up from Birmingham, UK is Guts and Glory Bike Polo. While they currently only offer one shaft in a 0.9mm option, they still have the potential to bring some competition on the bike polo market.

To give one a try for yourself, head over to their website (HERE) and pick up a shaft or two!

Help The Beavers Get To France

June 3, 2014

The Beavers polo shirts

 

As much as The Beavers seem like millionaires after winning the 2013 WHBPC, in reality, they see the same struggles as the rest of us. One of which is being able to afford attending the 2014 WHBPC in Montpelier, France. To help ease the burden on their already stressed wallet, they have decided to sell some t-shirts. They have two great designs up for sale thanks to the former Beaver Boy, Joe Burge.

To pick up a shirt and help the Beavers defend their title, follow this link HERE to pick up a shirt!

Heartland & East Side 2014

June 1, 2014
heartland qualifier los tranquilos

This weekend was slightly calmer than the last, in terms of qualifying tournaments. With no word from anyone in Europe about a qualifier happening on that side of the globe, it’s safe for me to assume that the only qualifiers that took place this past weekend were the first ever Heartland Qualifier in Indianapolis, IN and the East Side Qualifier in Lancaster, PA. So without further ado, here are the 11 teams heading to North Americans:
