3/6/12What a strange winter, I can count the days we saw frost on the ground on one hand. The days I wore my warm Sponge Bob footie pajamas anyway would take all fingers and toes. Mine are the deluxe model that has a Velcro flap, facilitating my 4 nocturnal visits to the potty. Anyway... back to the weather. I intend to fertilize the farm soon as we may have seen our last freeze. Even if we get another freeze, I wont mind cause then I wont send my letter of apology to Al Gore for his stupid theories. If I do have to send my letter it will be in the form of an email as he is so welt acquainted with the internet. You should know as well I have been bored out of my mind in the off season. Top three things I do to burn time till polo season starts?#3....Play Words with Friends with my wife, sitting next to each other on the same couch arguing over words like tater. #2...Check the Ocala Star Banners Mug Shots of who got arrested each night just hoping to see one of you... again. And #1 ....Turn the AC down as low as it will go to simulate winter, light a fire in the fire place and pretend to be on American Idol with my 3 legged kitten Sparta.(aka Clamdigger). I am usually the contestant and Clamdigger is Steven Tyler. Good thing that polo starts soon cause no matter what, Clamdigger only gives me 1 thumb up. Here is what to expect.  Oxford Polo will start March 16 and continue until May. 26 See schedule below on what weekends that we play both Fri. and Sat. You may play either day or both.

2/15/11Greetings Polo Junkies!As most of you have come to realize, these have been hard economic times. The cost of beer just keeps rising as well as salon services and fungal creams. I imagine it is easy to get depressed as each day you wake from your dreams of dancing with Justin Bieber, pour yourself a bowl of generic Count Chocula and head out the door for yet another dismal day in the life of a commoner. Does hope seem so far from the hovel inwhich you dwell? Well a new day is dawning. It was about two weeks ago while playing a game of twister with my wife, as I do most mornings, that it occurred to me that I should make a concerted effort to improve your conditions. As I have learned from my personal life coach, Major Zumwalt, it is likely not within each of your capacities to resurrect yourselves from the quagmire of despair the besets you but rather, hope and grace must be delivered to you. The bible says, "Blessed are the feet of the one who brings good news", so you can start blessing my feet because I have some great news:1. Oxford polo will start March 11th and continue until May 28th. See schedule below.On weekends that we play both Friday and Saturday, you can play either day or both.2. David Manuel, our local blacksmith, now offers cheep pedicures through his newbusiness called " I Fancy your Feet" .

Readers Beware,BRAD LIMEHOUSE IS A LIAR.... I have video footage and witnesses to prove myallegations. Let me say this first, as I set the context of his offence, I hold noanimosity toward his kin for the transgressions that be fault Brad. I am fully awarethat history tells of a beautiful, intelligent woman named Frankie that set her eyes ona dashing southern gentleman named Buck and set out to conquer him. Thoughsuccessful in that endeavour to the point of matrimony, she could not champion theDMA that would one day produce the liar in question. She bore Buck 4 sons. One grewto be a senator, one manages the families hospitality business, one grew to overseethe family's exotic avian operations and one...BRAD proved to be a liar. As Meatloaf

sang in that tearful ballad 3 out of 4 aint bad.

 It was Sunday in a game at the Villages Polo Club. They have a rule there that if 4goals are scored in the 4th chucker, then the entire stadium gets a free beer. Did youhear me ...a FREE BEER. I am playing against Brad and his two other malnourished,Appalachian, mouth breather brothers and we have 30 seconds left to play in the 4thchukker. As I approach the penalty 4 awarded to me I realize that upon converting thisgoal we will have scored 4 goals in the 4th chukker resulting in FREE BEER. I quicklystrike a deal with Brad to let me score this goal since we will both enjoy the fruits ofmy labour. He agrees and then proceeds to steal the ball from me, race to the otherend of the field and score for his team the big hero. Liar Liar Liar. I passed by histrailer after the chukker to remind him of my dissatisfaction with clearly understood

sign language.

 Polo has been fantastic in Sept. and early Oct. They Booster Party was a greatsuccess with over 450 spectators to witness an exciting game where OxfordPolo beat Pro Materials by a narrow margin. We will host our next tournamentlate October so just like shampoo we will rinse and repeat.

Here is the Schedule:

 Dear Boys and Girts,Gather round and you shall hear the famous tale of summer at the Oxford Polo Club,it has been so incredibly hot this summer. Lots of rain so great for the fields and allbut so hot I was hospitalized due to it. They have yet to diagnose the problem but the symptoms of listening to the Jonas Brothers Cd over and over, acquiescing to the urge to repel off the side of my bed and eating popcorn off the movie theatre floors continue. Dr. Carlos Zamora suggests that I try a holistic treatment of Led Zeppelin, climbing up into the bed and searching for the illusive good n plenty when at theatres. I must confess however the heat, rain, fertilizer, over seeding, slicing, mowing, vacuuming and praying have our fields looking fantastic.Polo is just around the corner so here is what we will attempt this fall. OPCwill start Saturday September 11, and continue until November 27.  Saturday Sept. 11- SLOW CHUKKERS Saturday Sept. 18- CLUB POLO Saturday Sept. 24-26- 6 Goal Tournament- "Get Ready for the Villages Cup" Saturdays in October- CLUB POLO Saturday October 30- SCARY 4 GOAL TOURNAMENT POLO. Saturdays in November- CLUB POLO

Dear Polo Players,
I write you now both under the influence of codeine and adrenaline as so much hashappened as of late. Yes I had a collision in Barbados that broke some ribs but forcrying out loud quit saying "I heard you fell off your horse".

Please keepsending in your old boots as I would like to maintain our standing next year.Johnson and Johnson tests products each year and our diapers came in secondplace. We lost out to a product made by Johnson and Johnson so the resultsare being contested, however to know that we have an excellent, affordablediaper is comforting to our members actively attempting to have children.(Pascarellas, Lyalls, Fredericks, Becks, Lyalls, Morans, Kelloggs, Lyalls andCampbells.On to Polo.

Dear Polo Player,

Ok...I am depressed. I hate it when polo season is out. I just miss the routine, interaction with friends, adrenaline rush, the sound of Jack Russells under a passing dual wheeled Ford F-350 turbo diesel. It just gets me down. Sure this time of year we celebrate the birth of Christ, Gods gift to us, securing a eternal home with our creator forever in Heaven and yea ... champagne and fireworks on the New Year...but no polo for 2 months? I find myself yet again at the refrigerator seeking a solace for my sorrows in something made by Kraft. Maybe if I dwell on a few memories of the last season and a few dreams of the spring, I will abate the impending drowning in the quagmire of despair.  Memories. We had an outstanding fall season with over 35 playing members, excellent polo, awesome bbqs, no cases of malaria or TB. Also the creation of an Oxford Polo Club website (oxfordpoloclub.com) and a Face Book page. (I still don't get face book)

The joint adventure of the OPC and Powers Plantation tournament was a great way to end the season with 6 teams in the event and me the big winner. Yes me, me, me. Dreams. The fields held up very well and have been sanded, aerated, rolled and will be ready for the March opener in our Spring season. We will start March 6 and play through the end of May. Our season should coincide well with our neighbour club The Villages as they will start 2 weeks after us and end two weeks before. All those planning on playing at The Villages are welcomed to warm up at Oxford Polo. I do hope to work a tournament per month into our Spring Season this year. More to come on this.

Dear Polo Player,
A chilling Wind swept across the field as the ominous sound like thunder inthe distance grew steadily louder. Anxious chatter increased as well among all ofus field side as each anticipated the impending arrival. Some fought to quell thefear that was rising in them while others of us abandoned all hope, fell into a fetalposition and began to mutter incoherent bantering about Othello and Jon and Kate+ 8. The blood curling scream of bearings in need of grease confirmed our darkestfears Fred Moerhing was back…..  Fields are holding up great after 6 weeks of play. Thank yous to all of you who took the time after games to walk, talk and stomp divots. The good condition of our fields is welcomed news to the players rumored to make their grand entrance to OPC. On that list are Oliver Butterworth, Susan Bekaert, Jim and Betina Stevens, Joy Rodak, Brian Thomas??? And why not little scaredy pants Dardo Iglesias who promises that after he finishes the box of Count Chocula in his pantry he will bring a team to visit.  We will continue polo at OPC on Saturday mornings until the second weekend in December as the Villages Polo Club is in full swing with games on Fridays and Sundays. Please email me NOW the dates you desire to participate and the number of players coming with you so I can make teams and pair up !/2 teams with others who wear the same cologne. Also help me get email addresses of others to join us here. Food for the next weeks by Brian Warwick, Greg Hinkson and Freddie "Thunder Thighs" Moerhing.

September Newsletter 2009

9/20/09 Dear Polo Player, Tip of the month…Murphy’s Law applies to computers. Mine put up a lightning rod and was obliged by God of its request. $1,500.00 and a 2 week long surgery to put the contents of one hard drive into the new candidates’ frame and presto…Septembers’ Newsletter becomes a recap of the months activities. Fields are looking great and the weather compliant enough for us to play each Saturday and Sunday in September. Thanks to all for the overwhelming involvement of all our players as we have enjoyed 5 and now 6 teams worth of players, steak, chicken, lamb, sausage and all the sides for three very excellent BBQ’S. Animal Planets visit to our club was an awesome success. They obtained some great footage of our club and Greg Hinkson and I will let you all know the date it will be aired on National TV. I am planning a shrimp boil this coming weekend for our Strawberry eating friends from Plant City who we intend to educate them in the many “fundamentals of how to get whooped in polo and still not cry publicly.” 

After this last weekend of polo in September, we will continue polo at OPC on Saturday mornings as the Villages Polo Club is scheduled to start their fall season. Enough of you have indicated to me that you intend to continue playing however to fully organize I need to get an exact number of participants. Please email me NOW the dates you desire to participate and the number of players coming with you so I can make teams and pair up ½ teams with others in their phylum.

August Newsletter 2009

Dear Polo Player,

         Since I was never strong in math I have been practicing a certain equation:Fertilizer + Water = Mowing. Mowing - Hat = Sunburn. Sunburn + Aloe = backrub. Fields are looking great so the time has come to put your water wings on and jump in or step away from the pool. I need to know your intentions concerning participation at OPC this fall so that I can begin to organize. Perhaps pop me back a quick one liner. So far most respondents are coming with a partial team and have indicated for me to just place them with other players. This will work out fine and means we will all end up  playing some weekends with each other and the next against. The rosters so far include: Moran Clan, Lyall's Lair, Fredericks Flock, Pascarella's Pack, Butterworth's Bunch, Hinksons Hoard, Meathead's Minions, Limehouse's House, Reyes' Ranks, A Zamora and my three heelers. CALL, WRITE OR EMAIL BACK SOON SO WE CAN MAKE A SCHEDULE!

    Dear Polo Player,

    Just when I was beginning to think that Al Gore may be right and Florida is going to

    burn up in record heat...the summer rains came. Now, after renovating and fertilizing

    the fields, all we do at the Oxford Polo Club is mow grass. The fields are looking great

    reminding us it is time to organize our fall polo plans. I hope yours will include OPC.

    Our spring season taught us many lessons. Most of them were excellent recipes for the

    great food we had after every game. With the success of the spring season (over 30

    players) let's plan to repeat that format in the fall. Here are the details.

    Let's have 4 Chukker
    4 Goal Polo every Saturday and Sunday in September and

    play at times when the heat will not be a factor. Late Saturdays with food afterwards

    and early Sundays. Look at your calendars and reserve the days you would like to play.

    You can play on both days if you choose. This format will require you to mail/phone in

    your chukkers in advance so the simple minded can organize everything. You can bring

    your own team or ask to be placed on one but either way... well in advance.
