2016 Season!

sand2The 2015 season was one for the record books! We played our first 4 goal at the club, we had a record number of spectators visit, the field improvements vastly exceeded our expectations, and we had the best members a club could hope for! Thank you to everyone that joined and visited to make our club a fun weekend destination! And special thanks to South Bay Horse Ranch for all their support and allowing polo to continue at our fantastic facility!

Looking forward to 2016, we have big plans! There will be 4 main tournaments this year: the Kick Off, NYTS, Garlic Cup and the Wes Linfoot Memorial. We are also introducing six “Just for Fun”Tournaments throughout the year. We would like to encourage members to sponsor these “Just for Fun” tournaments. The only thing required to sponsor is to provide trophies. So, take a look at the attached schedule and let me know what tournament you’d like to sponsor. Or get a group together to sponsor.  Its always more fun to have something to play for!! All the “Just for Fun” tournaments will be followed by a traditional South Bay Pot Luck BBQ. They will be run similar to traditional club chukkars, sand1but scores will be kept
and goals will be counted. On the last day of the season, we will have year end prizes: who scored the most goals, most improved, most improved under 18, most cases of beer donated, Best playing Pony, etc. We are looking for sponsors for these prizes as well. 

As for field improvements, we plan to spread about 100 tons of sand, 30 tons of compost and about half a ton of bermuda seed this season. The field played wonderfully last year. It should be even better this year!

With all these improvements to the schedule and the field, you would expect a rise in the membership fees. BUT NOT THIS YEAR!! As a special thank you to all our members, we are keeping our annual membership dues exactly the same! Annual Membership dues are $3000 for the year or $2500 if paid by March 1st, 2016.  You can make the checks out to:field 2016
