THE VILLAGES INSURANCE WAS THE WINNER
It was a fantastic weekend of Polo
The staff at The Villages Polo Club has been working hard at planning for our fall season. As you can imagine, with changes in the status of COVID 19 in our community, they have had to alter and adjust their plans as well as the facility. As we go forward, there will most certainly be more changes and adjustments on their part and ours as well. A weekend at the stadium will be very different from the past, but the Polo matches will not change. We will still have all the excitement of a match that we have come to enjoy. The sound of the ponies racing down the field, the players shouting out plays to their team, and Dale doing the play-by-play will be music to our ears! Let's be kind to each other and the staff while we navigate these changes together.
Exciting News, Lord Lyall and Oxford Polo Club has arranged for all our Booster Club members to enjoy some polo matches this summer. Our future players, Polo school students, along with many players we are already familiar with, will be playing matches at The Grand Oaks Resort, as well as The Florida Horse Park. These will be free to our 2020 paid members!
These matches will be held after late afternoon, when hopefully it will be cooler. They will take place in a covered arena, where there is plenty of space for social distancing. We are hoping to have these matches every Tuesday and Thursday and perhaps on Sunday as well. The Grand Oaks Resort will provide food and beverage for purchase. Please use your login page for details, times and locations.
OUR FIRST ARENA POLO AT THE GRAND OAKS RESORT
POLO AND TAILGATING AT THE FLORIDA HORSE PARK
A fun time was had by all. Thank you Boosters for all your efforts to make this first experience at The Florida Horse Park a successful one, for telling your friends and getting them to become members. After a rough start, we were wondering if we were spectators with no event, it all came together. The players were happy to have us there, and asked us to come back. Our winners of the tailgate contest, the ladies with the pink flamingo mascot, received a polo ball signed by all the players. These players are at the park every Sunday, at either 10:30 am or 6 pm. A Sunday morning brunch tailgate sounds like fun. You can get their schedule on their facebook page, Team Resolute Polo. They all expressed thanks for us coming and cheering them on. Please let us know if this is something you would like to do again. We would love to hear your feedback.
