Goods and Services...

On January 15th and 16th, we will explore the countless ways to have fun at an indoor skating rink in St. Louis, Missouri. Together, all of us will experience life-changing craziness that will be burned in our hearts and minds forever. If you leave The Skatium on January 16th and can say that you did not have a blast, you will have failed in an epic manner.

Of course, to get into our polo party, there still remains that pesky issue of paying the entrance fee. But before you start throwing money our direction, the STL Bike Polo Club wants to clearly state what your money is providing you:

1.) 24-hours of sheltered partying and polo. Your entrance fee helps us cover the building’s rental fee. Your entrance fee provides you with a (kind of) warm place to explore partying and polo for 24-nonstop-hours. There will be polo. There will be partying. There will be dancing (if you’re not too cool for school). There will be games. There will be a piƱata. And Lexington promised an underwear game (we’ll see if they deliver on their promises).

2.) Beer. Lots of it. Your entrance fee provides you with access to as much beer as you can ingest in a span of 24-hours. We will try to do whatever it takes to make sure that you can have a beer from the first minute to the last minute of the STL Bike Polo Lock-In. You are also welcome to bring your stashes of moonshine/FourLoko/beer/liquor/homebrew/etc. for your enjoyment and the enjoyment of others. Just remember: The STL Bike Polo Lock-In is a marathon…not a sprint.

3.) Two meals. One of these may be vegetarian…The other will be along the lines of a pizza run. If you need more than that, feel free to backpack-in whatever sustenance you think you may need (side note: my college roommate backpacked a full, roasted chicken into the AMC theatre in downtown Chicago on opening night of “The Dark Knight.” Feel free to do something similar. Maybe we’ll hand out a prize for the best item carried into the Lock-In via backpack). You will also be welcome and encouraged to explore the city for grub. It’s called a “Lock-In”, but we are technically not allowed to lock you inside the Skatium for 24-hours…Something about fire codes.

4.) Chances to win/earn “fabulous” prizes throughout the 24-hour party. No, I am not talking about Velocity Chukkers. Booze is more likely. We will see what kind of fun stuff we can dig up around town.

Would you be willing to pay $25 for all of the fun promised above? Honestly, I have seen people spend more playing Photo Hunt at the local bar.

If you have read the list above and still want to attend the STL Bike Polo Lock-In, here is what you need to do:

- Send us $25.00 via Paypal.

- Make sure the message sent with your payment contains the following info:

a. The name of the person for which you are paying.

b. The name of that person’s club.

**PAYPAL NOTE** Before you try to pay us online, make sure that you applied and were accepted by the STL Bike Polo Club. If you try to pay for a spot and you haven’t sent us an application, you will not be allowed into the Lock-In, and we may keep your money. If you pay for your spot and we have your accepted application on file, you will get an email officially confirming your golden ticket to the 2011 STL Bike Polo Lock-In.

If you do not want to pay via PayPal, we will collect money at the door. But we will only collect money from people that have applied and been accepted. DO NOT show up at the Skatium on January 15th and think that you can beg your way into the Lock-In. Only people that have applied and have been accepted will be allowed into the party. NO EXCEPTIONS.

For those of you that need more convincing, it has just been confirmed that PBR has agreed to be a part of the 2011 STL Bike Polo Lock-In! This party is going to be amazing.
