Hey all. This Sunday the annual Kurilpa Derby is happening in West End. This event is being organised by the West End Community Association (WECA) and is a great event. WECA are supporting the nationals in a couple of weeks so naturally a polo demo would be a great way to show our thanks.
On the same day we have already scheduled a pre-Nationals tournament and a plan would be to have the tournament finish just before the derby starts. The derby assembles at 2pm with a parade down Boundary st. We have been invited to join in on this and a few of the organisers are doing a “Tweed” style ride so please yourself if you want to join in on this, or just roll how you like.
The polo demo can be any time we like. Maybe around 3:30 - 4pm would be good?
EDIT: We’ve decided to go back to the original plan of 1pm for the tournament. As people get knocked out we can assemble a group to go over to do the demo.
One of the organisers wants to organise some kind of competition for us as well. He suggested a competition to see who can ride backwards the furthest. What do you guys think? I was thinking a skid comp down Boundary St would be better
Scrap the plan to start the tournament at 10:30am as I had suggested. Too many people have other plans so we’ll shoot for a 1pm start instead and as people get knocked out we can arrange a group to head down to the Derby and do the demo.
