About North Conway Public Library

The North Conway Public Library is a privately funded, non-profit organization founded in 1887 and formally incorporated in 1905. It proudly serves the residents of North Conway, New Hampshire and surrounding communities.

The library receives no regular funds from the Town of Conway, the State of New Hampshire, or the federal government, so their major sources of support are through donations, fundraisers, and bequests.  Community involvement, donation, and support are always humbly and greatly appreciated to keep the library at its best to support literacy and a love for community, learning, and literature!

The mission of the museum is to collect, conserve, and exhibit elements of ski history for research, education and inspiration.

It is anticipated that the cost to lease, renovate and equip the community center to properly house the museum and ensure its long-term health will be $1,700,000. Professional museum quality environmental renovations will be required to display priceless artifacts from the existing collection. Interactive displays and exhibit features are also planned. A fixed budget will be created after the final programming and architectural solutions are completed. A capital campaign team has been formed of New England Ski Museum directors and key Mount Washington Valley residents to promote this exciting charitable endeavor and raise the requisite funds.

pogo, pillo, polo tournament in north conway

Were you a fan of Wild & Crazy Kids? 80s babies and children of the 90s, rejoice! We’ll be taking a page out of that classic Nickelodeon game show and invite all area nonprofits and school organizations to compete in a 3v3 Pogo Polo Tournament “on the green.”

So what exactly is Pogo Pillo Polo?
Each player will be equipped with a Hopper Ball, ya know, the bouncies with handle on it and a Pillo Stick–that game you used to play in gym class, remember? The game ball will be a giant beach ball and two oversized nets will be at each end. There will be three field players, an no goalies allowed in net.

Check out this video (8:48) for an idea of how the game is played.

Who can compete?
We’ll break things up into three categories*: Kids Play (5-12), Kind of Adults (13-18) and Adults (19+).

This is a great opportunity for sports teams fundraising to buy uniforms, schools raising money for field trips, nonprofits looking for project funds, etc. While we will allow businesses and/or groups of friends/family to compete, we ask that you select a nonprofit or cause to donate your earnings to if your team wins.

It will be a 3v3, double elimination tournament to win up to a $500 donation, directly benefiting the winning nonprofit or elected nonprofit by the team. Teams can have up to six people on a roster, but only three players can be on the field of play.

Kids Play Prize – $100
Kind of Adults Prize – $250
Adults Prize – $500

*Note: Based on participation, the Kind of Adults and Adults categories would possibly compete amongst each other. Kids Play will remain separate, but must have at least 4 teams entered to have a tournament. Team’s will play up a category if it consists of 1 or more members of an old category – For example, if a team has two 12 year olds and a 14 year old, it would play in the Kind of Adults category.

Registration and Rules
Teams must register in advance by Thursday, April 28. A team deposit of $10 is required to register. Each team member will receive a goodie bag at registration on the day of the event that includes a $10 gift certificate for Settlers Green.
