A big Thank You to our club volunteers!

A short recap of Newport Polo Tailgate 2017 and thank you to our Events Team for their efforts in helping to make this outing a success --  as told by Co-President Paul Stavrand '07BUS:

Thank you for your help in making Polo '17 another successful event! I appreciate all that you did to contribute - postings, emails, speaker arrangements, potluck and CAARI supplies. We had 30+ Columbia alums and friends. The speakers and potluck were a hit and all the Ivy clubs filled up the four tailgate spaces - our largest crowd yet with well over 80 people. 

Massimo (Max) and Marco Elser visited for more than a half hour, mingling with the alums and speaking to the crowd on some of the particulars of the sport of Polo, followed by a Q&A.

USA prevailed in the match, 15 to 10, and the awards ceremony was very warm-hearted as both teams enjoy their competition and camaraderie after six years of matches.

And the weather was fantastic for a July afternoon!
