I love polo! Love it. Don't have the nerve to play (not to mention that my dear Obie would probable just keel over of a heart attack if I asked him to give it a go!). But am a avid fan. That the sleepy little town of Darlington, PA has a polo team is amazing. That said sleepy little town is a mere 25 minute drive from the farm is sweet. The team plays in Darlington on a sand field that is about 1/3rd (my estimate) of the size of a regulation field. And on Sundays a couple of times over the course of the summer they play in East Palestine, OH on a regulation size field.
The cost of admission is $5 per person, under the age of 16 and your admitted free. You back your car up to the field pop the hatch and set up your tailgate. Quite the deal. Dogs and allowed. And Miss Charlotte Pup Pup knows when it's Friday night. Her little self hovers around me until I leash her up and load her in the car. I have only missed 1 game in four years. I plan my vacations around the schedule.
The great outdoors, horses, food, and dogs allowed. Good clean fun! What more can you ask for. If you live in Western PA or plan to visit. Give the Darlington Polo Club hotline a call at 724-814-7022 and find out if there is a match scheduled. Oh course I'll be Blogging and Tweeting about it all summer as well. Hopefully will get my camera settings figured out to bring you better pictures. Anyway you won't regret it....promise! Look for Charlotte and myself...our tailgate is always open.
