We have worked out a tentative lesson schedule for the fall semester. The
schedule is designed so that each lesson has multiple people with cars (for
the first Monday lesson at 7pm, I will be driving). Carpools will leave
from Purdue West<http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Follett%27s+Purdue+West+Book+Store,+Wes...>(where
the Follet's and Dairy Queen are located near the intersection of
IN-26 (State St.) and McCormick Rd.). While we hope that all of you will
attend your first lesson on horseback beginning the first week of October
and continue for the entire semester, if anything has changed at this point
please let me know by the end of next week. The number of people in each
lesson is designed to allow for not only instruction, but so that you can
scrimmage and play the game each lesson as well! If you are interested in
riding more than once a week, please let me know so that the lesson schedule
can be modified.
*To begin our fall polo school, we will have lessons on the ground using
foot mallets on *September 19 (a Monday) and September 27 (a Tuesday) on the
Memorial Mall (on the side closest to Stewart Center - look for someone with
a mallet!) starting at 6:30pm*. These sessions aren't mandatory, but we
hope you attend because you will receive instruction on proper hitting
technique and the rules of polo. If it rains, we will still hold the
sessions - the location is to be determined at a later date.
We will go out to dinner afterward someplace close to campus (e.g. Boiler
Market, Chipotle, etc.).
Hope to see you all next Monday!
