Amid late night negotiations and bitter disputes, the NAH has shut down due to an inability to reach agreement on a stop-gap measure to keep the doors open on the North American Bike Polo association. Namely, extremists in the far right of the NAH governing committee refused to pass any resolution without a repeal of the scoop-shot ban, while President Shultz drew a line in the sand with his statement on the Scoop Shot Ban Act:
“The Scoop Shot Party cannot simply hold the NAH hostage because they aren’t willing to play by the rules,” El Presidente said in a press conference yesterday.
As a result of the NAH shutdown, over a dozen NAH non-essential staff will be furloughed to their actual paying jobs until the stop-gap measure is passed.
Recent polls show that this maneuver is not favorable for the Scoop Shot Party, with 45 percent of polo players unaware that such a party exists, 15 percent aware and supportive, and 40 percent of those surveys not aware of what NAH stands for.
