Weekend Polo Schedule + Happy Hour Tonight

Polo Player Happy Hour
It's time to stop working and come have a glass of wine with the British polo players at Sovana Bistro today Sept 15th, 5-7pm. Both, the British and USA teams said they want to meet you, our faithful fun Brandywine Polo Club fans. Players will be autographing a limited number of posters. Don't go home and change, come straight from work. We are waiting for you!
Meet British Forces Team Captain Mark Cann, and his team...Thursday, Sept 15th at Sovana Bistro 5-7 pm in Kennett Sq, PA.
As Director of The British Forces Foundation as well as his own Events and PR Company, Mark is also Director of The Burma Star Memorial Fund.
His army service began with the 17th /21st Lancers and then 12 years with The Queen’s Royal Lancers. His service took him on operations in Belize, Mozambique, Bosnia, and Cyprus. He then served as an active reserve for 2 years and remains a reserve ever since. As Director of The British Forces Foundation, the UK equivalent to USO, he specializes in large entertainment events and has visited every war zone British and American forces are deployed.
His sports passions are polo, tennis, and skiing. In polo, he has played in numerous locations including Palermo, Palm Beach, Ghana, India, South Africa, Pakistan, and of course Brandywine Polo. He has played on the East Coast many times and has been instrumental in keeping a wonderful 50-year exchange with East Coast polo going from across the pond. He is lucky enough to have played many times with HRH Prince of Wales and his two sons in the British Forces Foundation and Highgrove teams.  
Mark is married to Emma with three children. They live in Wiltshire, England with the head of the household – Betty, a Jack Russell.
Come meet him at Sovana, then watch him play on Friday, Sept 16th at 5 pm, followed by dancing in the Polo Pavilion and or on Sept 18th at 3 pm at Brandywine Polo Club: 232 Polo Road, Toughkenamon, PA 19348. Tickets on Sale: brandywinepolo.com

Break A Rule
"Polo In White"
Sunday, Sept 18th
USA vs British Forces, Final
Since Labor Day typically represents the end of summer, there is this unwritten 'rule' that one shouldn't wear white after Labor Day. Oh really? CALLING ALL RULE BREAKERS, Sunday Sept 18th 3pm, Brandywine Polo suggests all spectators to wear white, one last time for the USA vs British Forces Final. Why not? One less decision to make and it will make for great social media photos. See you then!
