Polo Match Defies Irene

Date:    Sunday, August 28, 2011

Despite looming weather concerns, the Washington Trust Cup polo match took place on schedule last Saturday, Aug. 27th, and after 6 action-packed chukkers, an 11-11 tie was decided by a penalty shootout in which Newport was the victor over its regional opponant.

One lucky attendee from Scituate won the weekly door prize drawing, taking home a handsome collection of summer/fall newly- released tomes from Harper Collins Publishers.

Newport Polo issued emails, FB social network announcements and Enews bulletins to keep fans notified of the status of the match, and kept callers informed of the match status through the 24-hour Info Line (401) 846-0200 x2.  To be on the distribution for all future Enews, sign up now!
