Boston Bike Polo Commonwealth Cup Sponsor Recap

Posted October 24, 2014 @ 12:37pm

Boston Bike Polo Commonwealth Cup Sponsor Recap Hi Mike - The 4th Annual Commonwealth Cup has come and gone, and I wanted to send you an email to say thank you so much for your support and sponsorship of our tournament. We really appreciate everything you do to support bike culture, and the growth and development of bike polo. This year teams traveled from Vancouver, Davis, Puerto Rico, Ann Harbor, and more to compete for the coveted Commonwealth Cup and $1000. The Means, a team comprised of players from New York, Ottawa and Richmond, took home the cup and the cash, while the rest of the podium was occupied by two teams from our home Boston Bike Polo Club. This year's tournament was the most successful yet, in no small part due to the generous support of our sponsors. This year's tournament was the most successful yet, in no small part due to the generous support of our sponsors. We used the bags you sent us as prizes for our Most Valuable Male and Most Valuable Female players....

Almanzo weekend consists of three totally self-supported events: The Almanzo 100, The Royal 162 and the nearly 400 Mile Alexander.

How To Clean Your Banjo Brothers Bags After 100 Miles of GravelCleaning Banjo Bags by Banjo EricUnless you want to keep that game-worn patina on your bags (Ben Erickson from the Hub Co-op in West Bank, I'm looking in your direction), dish soap and warm water are the best way to clean them. This year's Almanzo 100 was an especially dusty version, but with some soapy water and a sponge (and a beer), my bags looked quasi-new in a couple minutes.
