Boston Polo fled the crowded urban streets this weekend to a much needed chill-cation up north where the air is clear and the sherm is pure. Our crew arrived in 3 waves on Friday and got right into a plethora of shenanigans. Toni set the pace right off the bat, and it was apparent that this was going to be fully torqued the weekend. We arrived in the midst of Burlington’s Art Hop, the biggest most twisted torqued party of the year, full of bands and parties and dj’s and sherm sticks and whiskey and mind-blowing visual displays.
Saturday started without a hitch, save the high winds, and Boston was quickly dazzling folks on the hardtop. Two all Boston teams were in the running. Scorpionbowl DMT Sherminators was Howl, Sammy and Tyler. Slash and Burn was Toni Jav and Jamie. Johan and Addison played on The Not So Means and The Pointer Brothers respectively with some out of towner homies. Farm Raised was a quasi boston team with Jake and Tyler now of North Hampton. We played three high action swiss rounds before getting rained out.
After all was said and done, Johans team scored 2nd place, Slash and Burn pulled out in 4th, and Addison and Jake’s team’s tied for 7th. Everyone walked away with some dope prizes – designer French undies, Rad Caps and way more. Thanks to Liam and all the BVT crew for putting on such a rad tournament, we can’t wait to come back!
This will be the third year our good friends from the Burlington, VT club have put on this amazing tournament. Boston attended for the first time last year and had camping cooking polo partying shrooming beaching good time.

The Boston team of Jarrett, Bri and Nate took 3rd place at the Flour City Invite last weekend. They managed to overcome a bunch of tough teams, one of which got a bit surly with Jarrett over an alleged t-bone. Bri got the much deserved female MVP award, winning a lovely top tube cover. The Laurel, Howl and Jon team got knocked out by a bunch of drunk Canadians who fancied the wrist shot. Overall a fun experience. Stay tuned for info on our upcoming 2 on 2 tournament!
