The Regional Championship Finals remains on schedule for 4pm Saturday, September 24th, as the overnight rains were less than expected, leaving the field conditions stable and the forecast has significantly improved, with diminished chance of additional rain, alleviating further concerns of interferance with the scheduled match.
The Finals will consist of a single-elimination, 6 chukker championship match between the two teams with the best overall win record in the 2012 season-long tournament, from among Newport's most formidable rivals this year in New England.
Tickets and a few tailgate parking spaces are still available online until 10am. The gates will open at noon for lawn seats, and the Subscribers Enclosure and Twisted Pony bar will open at 3pm.
A door prize drawing will be awarded, courtesy of WCRI Classical Radio. The two-hour match will conclude with a trophy presentation by Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte, sponsored by Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and cocktail hour to mingle with the players.
