The Fall 2013 Season of Hawaii Polo is off and galloping!
Sunday, Sept. 1, we launched and it was a terrific turnout.
Obviously everyone had been excited and in eager anticipation for the
Sunday fundays of polo to resume. Along the mauka side, there were 4
rows of cars lined up and parked, and the makai side was of course
jam packed as well.
The “Expect a Miracle” fundraiser for Jim Erickson went really
well: Tables were packed with art items for sale and for auction, a
fun raffle gave away great gifts and gift certificates, and folks
were buying delicious “Jim drinks” from the bar, like the Maui
Jim, a Jim Fizz, Cherry Jim Bomb, and a Jim Sunrise.
Hawaii Fashion Week graced our polo sidelines as the beautiful
models showed off their luxuriant fabrics and designs of bathing
suits and accessories.
Skydive Hawaii brought their death-defying aerobatics at halftime
as well, descending out of the sky and eliciting cheers – and
GASPS! - from the audience!
And highlighting all of it was exciting polo racing around, with
Wealth Strategy Partners besting Bacardi in the first match, 4-3. And
in the main event, Hawaii won out over India, 9-7.
This Sunday, Sept. 8, is the headline of our visiting friends from
India's trip here: “The Maharaja of Jodhpur – Hawaii Polo Cup.”
Watch this exciting match as our guest team from
India plays the Equus team for the cup. After the match you are
invited to a cocktail reception to meet the Maharaja and the team
from India. Attendance is limited; however, all Hawaii Polo Club
members are invited. The first cocktail is hosted by Hawaii Polo
