Dear Friends of Polo, 2018
In our contemporary model as America’s first polo club, we aspire to keep the flame burning with unbridled passion for our sport and bring the world to our port with teams from every continent, drawing families & friends together with a unique recreational experience, develop new players from our polo school, and champion the needs of our community.
The new season is an opportunity to direct and sustain our future, improve what we can and conserve the essence of this tradition. We treasure these weeks with generations of families & friends that return year after year to share the polo experience with us. There is no greater validation than your participation in the Polo Series as a part of your summer ritual. You are our inspiration and together we hope for the Best. Season. Ever.
Through hard work and dedicated individuals, we are able to extend our contributions to the community in various ways. I applaud the volunteers of the many nonprofits that take part in our All Charity Day, as well the tireless auction committee of our annual charity gala benefitting Save The Bay this year, and I salute the Newport Rotary Club and contributors at the Newport Daily News for their tremendous effort in producing our season program, whose advertising dollars support the Rotary’s many charitable initiatives. I thank our sponsors without whom the Polo Series would not be as expansive. Last but not least, I applaud the dedicated staff of the Newport International Polo Series with whom it is an honor to work.
Very Truly Yours,
Dan Keating, Captain
