A lot of you are repeat attendees. You've been here before, and you know what to expect. Those of you that have graced the Skatium in the past know the ins and outs of the event, so sorry if this is a little repetitive.
If you intend to play polo at the Lock-In (it's cool if you don't), you will need at least one mallet in your possession. You are welcome to bring extras, and those will be helpful when we have grudge matches and special games throughout the night.
But know this: You are only allowed to have one mallet in the next game rack. We'll have a rack organizing the next game piles, and we are trusting you to be honest and patient and to not put more than one mallet in that rack. If you are caught stacking mallets in order to get more time on the court, you will be caught, and you will be excommunicated form the Lock-In.
It's harsh but it's true.
Your time is not any more important than anyone else's at the Lock-In. Line cutting and mallet stacking are dick moves, and what was the original rule of polo (long before NAH Ruleset 2 version 3.5)?*
At a 24-hour polo party, you will have plenty of time to play polo. Make new friends and party with them between your time on the court.
*The answer is "Don't be a dick."
