North American Championship – Lexington to host Sept 17-20
Preparations: reserve community center, build ref stand for court A, nets between courts, paint middle court, paint outside of courts, repair doors, drill more drain holes
Additional tournaments – general consensus was that we could host the regional if others would come help run it, we would mainly be providing the facility

The NAH recently announced the first Club Bench Championship scheduled on September 27-28, 2014, and Lexington was asked to be the gracious host! The top twelve clubs will be selected to qualify using the new NAH Points system. The eleven highest ranked clubs who elect to send teams, plus the host club (that’s us), will qualify for the tournament. For more details, see the NAH website.
To prepare for the tournament, some court maintenance needs to be done, so get ready to rally. On the agenda will be building the third court, painting the boards, and seeing how bad we can scar Tiff with rubber bands. Oh, and drinking all of the cheap champagne.
Stay tuned for the work schedule, but until then, let’s play polo!
Facebook event here.
Lexington’s Tweed Ride will be the 15th and we will break the tournament in the middle of the afternoon to join the ride. Pickup will also be happening during that time, so if you forget your tweed, no worries.
Returning with a vengeance for spilling blood and own-goals…
