Palisades Chamber Polo Tourney Sept. 25

The 24th Annual Chamber of Commerce Polo Tournament will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 25 at Will Rogers State Historic Park and is free to the public. Parking is $12.

There will be food trucks for everyone, a silent auction, free tours of the Will Rogers ranch house (11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.) and pony rides and Whirlie the Clown for the kids.

Polo is thought to have originated in Persia in 600 B.C. and was also played in China and India, where it was picked up by British colonists. Will Rogers loved the sport and huge crowds used to gather, not only at Will’s ranch, but also at the polo fields on land now occupied by Paul Revere Middle School.

Throwing in the ball before each match will be Chamber President Adam Glazer, Steve Ghysels of Wells Fargo Private Bank, Mr. Palisades Evan Epstein and Miss Palisades Casey Longstreet.

The major sponsor of the event is Wells Fargo The Private Bank and silver sponsor is Hornburg Jaguar.
