Moving Target team represents at Shoreditch polo
20.08.08 by Buffalo Bill
Jon, Janky and Ryan put up an amazing show at the Shoreditch polo tournament on Sunday, reaching the quarter-finals, where they were knocked out by the BAD team, in one of the most exciting games of the tournament. At one point trailing 4-0, they clawed back to 4-4, before eventually falling to a spectacular goal.
Despite the early start, all the teams, some from as far as Wisconsin, had a great day, and I myself had a fantastic time. Spotted in the crowd at various points were various messengers, including everyone’s hero, Ephraim. I know that I speak for everyone there when I say that tournament was one of the highlights of the summer. There are heaps of pics over here.
The only low was a nasty crash involving Barnesy and a member of Zombie RMY, Rob, at the start of a game. The cause was a head-on collision, and Barnesy suffered a heavy blow to the head. We all hope that Barnes will make a full recovery very soon.
The overall winners were Bike Polo Munich, who played with stereotypical German efficiency, but my own personal favourite team was the Fabulous French Fuckers who were fast, skillful and didn’t moan when they were leaned on. My felicitations and congratulations to the organiser, Roxy Erickson, and my thanks to all the refs and other peeps who helped out.
