Forecast is cold but clear. We gritted the court this afternoon, so there shouldn't be any problems with ice.

Hey thanks all for getting involved and getting your arses down, up and across to Downham.
In total there were 10 teams, I reckon about 50% of these were from Cambridge (some new fen faces)

The draw started at 11 but 16 or so people were there at about 10:00 the comp was a double elimination but stupidly i didnt account for over 8 teams being there..... AND thankfully Bill lives close by.

Thanks Cambridge Sam for doing the draw. The teams were pretty mixed up and I think there were only 2 teams with London only players in them. DestroyAZ and 2 Mats one Apple.

All the games started without a hitch, were fair and without too many accidents.

You could tell today that Cambridge's other new players had got good quick. All the games were 10mins long apart from the final where the DestroyAZ (Josh, Rik and I) met the newly formed Black rebel (snoops, Horatio and a new Cambridge face (apologies i cant remember your name)) the destroyaz beat BR 4-1.

Get in!

Thanks everyone who got involved with the food (epic cookies from James and amazing swedish meatballs!) and the refs, goal refs and players. Again a special thank to B for going home to pick up another bracket.
...and thanks to Dr Chukka for calling me a cunt... but still giving me a xmas pressie. yes!

Looking forward to seeing the snaps as i didnt take any :(

Heres to another great year of POLO!!!!!x

Yeah was a great day of play - downham at it's atmospheric best!

Nice one raymond...was a great way to start of polo 2010.

Cool to see and play with the Cambridge lot (better check on the cambridge trophy tomorrow though) and a few others who made it down from out of London ( chris you're so committed).

And cheers to gabes and talaban matt for our games.
