Polo Match - Saturday, Sept. 30th

Join the EHC on a Saturday afternoon fieldtrip to the Newport International Polo Association's Turkish Airline Finals. Newport Polo boasts a rich history, as their website explains: "Polo is, without doubt, the oldest ball game in the world today. First recorded in the 6th century B.C. when the Turkomans beat the Persians in a diplomatic tournament, the alluring game caught on with equestrian royalty and cavalry, and took off with globalization, withstanding the tests of time. Arriving on Newport’s shores during the Gilded Age, the sport had evolved for nearly 2500 years, steeped in tradition, captivating newcomers like Newport's summer sporting set who embraced the new pastime, establishing America's first polo club in 1876. A charter member of the United States Polo Association, the club today is still a trailblazing model polo club, hosting the Newport International Polo Series public exhibition matches, supporting philanthropic causes, organizing tournaments, polo club member services, and polo instruction year-round. Experience the king of games in its American landing at Newport Polo."

The grounds (located at 250 Linden Lane, Portsmouth, RI 02871) are approximately 20 minutes from the Bristol campus, and we will depart after the annual meeting.
