Cottonian Polo Team Plays in Hawaii USA

As part of the celebrations  to commemorate the 40th year of the class of ’71 passing out of BCS, I led my polo team called the ‘Cottonian Polo Team’ to play an Invitational International Polo tournament in Hawaii, USA from 25 Aug to 5 Sept, 2011. The final match played on Sunday 4th Sept was won by the ‘Cottonian Polo Team’ against the local favorites the  ‘Hawaii Polo Club Team’ by a nail biting 9-8 goal score line. The match was keenly contested by both teams & played in a fast paced encounter on the beautiful Hawaii Polo Ground located on the beach of the famous North Shore of Oahu in Honolulu, Hawaii. This match was the Grand Finale event of the Hawaii Polo season & was watched by a record crowd of over 3,000 spectators, enjoying the polo, after polo party, a sky diving display & the festive atmosphere. I will be sending pictures of the match later, to be posted here.
