6th Annual Potluck Polo Picnic
Sunday, July 13, 2014, 2-5pm
Come join fellow Princetonians, family and friends for an exciting afternoon
of USPA high-goal polo and our sixth annual potluck picnic at
the Greenwich Polo Club. The
Greenwich Polo Club is open
to the public. Attire is "Garden Party Chic" and a Reunions outfit can
often be spotted. Look for the PRINCETON
banner that will lead you to our area and set up your blanket and beach or
field chairs. Ladies, don't forget your polo hats for the complete look!
Truly a memorable annual PAAFC event.
How it works: Everyone brings a food dish (and serving spoon if required) that will serve
or ~3 times your party size. Drink contributions welcomed too. The club will provide tables
for the potluck, plates, cups, utensils, napkins and will fill in to
complete the potluck. Please e-mail your attendance with your contribution to help plan and avoid
duplications, and phone number (in case of cancellation) to Lisa Vannatta Carpenter
