San Diego Polo Club Players and Members headed out to Indio, California for a weekend of polo, socializing and fun!
Some of us kicked off the weekend stick and balling on Friday evening at Eldorado Polo Club with Kyle Fargey. The rest of us headed out on Saturday morning to participate in a group lesson with Erik Wright of Wrightway Polo.
After a couple chukkers at Empire Polo Club, we headed over to the Cantina at Eldorado Polo Club for lunch. We enjoyed a professional polo match from the patio of the Cantina… wow, what a view!
To end the day, we celebrated at Empire Polo Club‘s Blue and White Argentine themed party. Guests were encouraged to dress in the country’s colors. Fire pits kept us warm as we watch the Argies cook up the traditional asado meal. We ran into San Diego players Miguel Guiterrez, Mariano Gutierrez, Rick and Robin Paicius, Graham Bray, Jesse Bray, Nourdean Anakar, Colleen Wilson, Ellen Greenhill, Kimo Huddleston and his family, Billy Ramos, the Brumby Family, and Erik Wright and his family. San Diego members danced the night away!
