Due to weather issues the event has been rescheduled to August 7th.
The British Car Club has been invited to take a front row seat at the North Shore polo matches on July 24th. Prior to the actual event, there will be a full-on lunch and time to visit with people outside the confines of our usual garage environment.
Think hitting a little white ball with a stick is tough? Try it sitting on top of a horse at a full gallop. Horsepower of a completely different variety will be on hand. Members who went to a match in the past said it was great fun, and the welcome mat was really rolled out for the club.
We will plan on meeting somewhere and caravan to the venue with lunch and the games to follow.
If you’re interested in going along on this outing, contact me so I can get a rough idea of how many will attend. The Hawaii Polo Club needs a head count.
Also, at the request of our hosts, there is a need for “someone to drive Murph around the polo field, preferably in a convertible Rolls Royce.” I’m sure that one of our members can accommodate this request.
Who is Murph you’re asking?
Murph Dailey is considered the First Lady of Polo since she and her late husband Fred Dailey founded the club 53 years ago. Here is an opportunity to repay their hospitality and show off one of our nicer cars at the same time. If you’re interested in helping, here is a contact number to call: Connie, 202-306-0848.
Gates open at 11:00 a.m. but the first match doesn’t begin until 2:00 p.m. You’re welcome to arrive ahead of gates open or if you prefer to arrive closer to 1:00 p.m. just let me know so we can alert the gate as to we will start arriving.
They have a full bar (credit cards & cash) available and Mexican cuisine (cash only). We are also welcome to bring our own food, beverages, grills, pop up tents, etc., if we would like to have a full day near the ocean.
More details on our arrival plans will come later, but for now, give it some thought and see if you can make room for a different kind of afternoon.
