Philadelphia Style Magazine Cup Polo Match Championship


Sunday
beautiful Sunday, Mike and I drove out to the The Brandywine Polo
Club in Kennet SQ, PA to watch The Residences at The Ritz Carlton’s,
Philadelphia Polo Team play The Borgata, Hotel & Casino’s AC Polo Team
For 1st Annual The Philadelphia
STYLE Cup, hosted by Philadelphia Style Magazine’s publisher John Collabelli
and his wife Lauren Collabelli.

 
Lots of beautiful, dressed in their polo watching finest turned out to watch the team sport played on horseback in which the objective is to score goals against an opposing team, including Italian exchange student/attorney, Antonio Aloisi, Carlo F. Fiammengh, architectural designer with Terra Studio  Yvette Cooper and Mark Tarasiewicz, Associate Executive Director at Philadelphia Bar Association



Sporting one of her magnificent taxidermy headpieces, milliner Beth Beverly and  Pearl Bell. The traditional sport of polo is played at speed on a large grass field
up to 300 yards long by 160 yards wide, and each polo team consists of
four riders and their mounts.

Proper Philadelphia’s R.C. Atlee Hodgson, the real estate market is picking up he tells me. Maria O’Connor, Chrissy Madden, Jen McGowan, CEO of Jackie’s Hat Box and Tracy Dugan

 The modern game lasts roughly two hours and is divided into periods called chukkas (occasionally rendered as “chukkers”). During half-time of a match, spectators are invited to go onto the
field to participate in a polo tradition called “divot stamping”, which
has developed to not only help replace the mounds of earth (divots) that
are torn up by the horses’ hooves, but to afford spectators the
opportunity to walk about and socialize.

The skies turned stormy, the last game was finished, but I had no idea who was going to get the 1st Annual Philadelphia Cup cause John Colabelli made the right decision by canceling the award ceremony. Mike Toub and I headed to the car with his new Borgatta chair.

We headed for our balcony and watched natures light show.
