Welcome to the Fall Season 2014
What a summer. I am back now from my travels. I went to where no man has gone before
and saw some old friends. Kirk looked about the same only much fatter and as age sets in he repeats the same stories
of his heroic acts over and over. Bones still works only now at the morgue, which he seems to like as he can say "
He's dead Jim!" all day. Sulu is as annoying as ever going around chopping everyone on the neck but
claims he does it "Gungan Style". On a sad note Scotty now smokes Dilytheim Crystals, Spock came out of the
closet and that thing in Ohurea's ear... turned out to be cancer. I know what you are thinking. He has had another
injury and is on meds. Not really. I am struggling with vertigo from an unknown cause however I think it makes me see things
twice as clear. Clear enough to warn you our season is "locked on target." Polo at Oxford Polo Club will begin
on Saturday Sept. 14. And will continue every Saturday until Oliver Butterworth grows his hair back.

Hey There To All!
How do you know it is time for Spring Polo to start? When you have to renew your umpire certification with the USPA.
I just got done completing mine and man was it hard You can take it on-line but they expect you to be able to read.
Some of the questions involved numbers and I am not strong at math. Not a single picture! Not one question like "are
you still having symptoms?" or "how did that laser procedure go?"! Here are a few examples of the questions
I found difficult:
1. Red player #1 hits the ball down field with the RDW (right of way).
To his right blue #2 approaches at a slight angle. Red #1's wife has severe PMS and refused to launder his whites from the
last game. As both players meet at the ball Blue #2's pants split in the seat exposing "too much information." Whose
A. Foul on red #1's wife for refusing to use Pamprin
No foul on red#1 cause we all know you can't get whites clean anyway.
C. Foul on Blue #2's
wife cause she was obviously angry with Blue #2 and attempted to erase the said "information" with excessive bleach.
D. All of the Above
2. Red #4 infers mal intent
emanating Blue #1. Anticipating a declining vector ratio of .0287 convergence to circumvent any posterities in anorexics
cycles, Blue #1 alters speed and terraformed action of the posterior digitalis of his bay mare. To avoid convergence with
the bay mare Red #4 should:
A. Take the Pamprin refused earlier by Red #1's wife.
B. Contact CDC immediately.
C. Tuck and roll.
Buy and feed the bay mare.
See what I mean....Very
Difficult. So not liking difficult things let me make it simple. We start polo next weekend. See Schedule below:

In Other News:
* Oxford Polo Club will be hosting the OPA to a tournament in April and will reciprocate
that event with a visit to Powers Plantation the following week.
* Keep me appraised of your intentions to play this
season so I can organize well in advance. As in the past all players took a weekend to sponsor our BBQ. Let me know any weekend
you prefer and MAY I ENCOURAGE ALL PLAYERS TO STAY FOR THIS PART OF THE DAY. Last season attendance dropped a little but if
you play ...you stay!
