Dear Players and Polo Enthusiasts,
The chukker ending bell has rung in the final game of the fall season and despite the many games played this year, I honestly still wish there were a few more runs to goal to be made before winter hits. Before the Holiday season takes over our lives, I want to acknowledge the many successes we made throughout the 2016 season and thank everyone for their collective efforts in making polo and the associated social activities the best seen in several years.
With everyone pulling together, players and enthusiasts alike, we were able to experience more and better polo at all levels. Hosting several USPA events elevated the competition, something we haven’t had in a while, and provided excitement for the spectators in the new Pavilion this fall.
Over the coming months I will be working with our Board to prepare now for an even better experience for the 2017 season, so please contact one of them or myself with any suggestions that you may want considered.
Lastly, don’t forget to RSVP for the Oscars of Polo Awards Party ON Sunday, November 13th. You may purchase your tickets online at http://willowbendpoloclub.com/oscars-polo-awards-party or contact me by phone 972 294-4700 for other payment options. The Party will feature a photo recap of the year, several USPA and Club awards and a silent auction & wine pull benefitting Equest.
See you on the field,
Robert B. Payne Jr.
