Yup..it's true. These bad boys, like everything else here, have been in the works for awhile and we've actually been sitting on 1 for a couple weeks after we cleaned out our pvc supplier ( Thanks Home Resource! ) We finally had to bite the bullet and fork out for the 2nd goal, so yes it is brand new pvc, thanks for noticing. We had the pleasure of playing on these on Thursday night on our small gravely court, which was fun, but I can't wait to get these things up to the parking garage! Pretty damn close to whatever you want to call regulation these days...we called it good at 6' w x 3' t x roughly 2 1/2' deep. Lets just say we can fit both of our old goals into one of these, so it's time to step up that D. Yay for polo! see you tonight around 7 @ the University parking garage!
