8th Annual Potluck Picnic

Sunday, August 28th, 2016

 

8th Annual Princeton Potluck Polo Picnic - Sunday, August 28, 2pm - 5pm [Gates open 1pm; match starts 3pm]

Where: 
The Greenwich Polo Club
Conyers Farm, North Street at Hurlingham Dr, Greenwich, CT
www.greenwichpoloclub.com

Join fellow Princetonians and other friends for an exciting afternoon for what has become an annual favorite at the Greenwich Polo Club. This year, the art museum at the polo grounds is open to the public starting at 1pm with the game action starting at 3pm. Look for orange and black to signify our location on site. Bring a blanket or beach/field chairs to sit by the field. All are welcome: it's a very family friendly affair and consider bringing a friend or two.

How it works: 
Bring a food dish that will serve 10-15 people (or 3 to 4 times your party size). The club will provide tables for the potluck, soda/mixers, and paper goods. There are also on-site vendors from hotdogs to lobster rolls. Please e-mail your attendance (with number of people) along with your anticipated food contribution to Lisa Vannatta Carpenter '85 P18. This is a "mingle" event--stay for an hour or the entire match to enjoy some Princeton camaraderie.

NEW PARKING RULES INSTITUTED THIS SEASON-- The polo club now charges $60/car on the event day but it is still possible to enter at $40/car if you buy a pass off the web site PRIOR to game day. So AVOID THE EXTRA FEE by going online and purchasing your parking pass, up to 11am the morning of match day at http://greenwichpoloclub.com/eco/tickets/

Three CT alumni organizations share Alumni Council Award!

The three organizations (PAAFC, PAAEC and PACC) have been working together for the past few years. Our mutual support was noticed outside of Connecticut. At the 2011 Reunions in May, the three Connecticut alumni organizations were awarded the Committee on Regional Associations Award for Innovation. The Alumni Council cited the three associations “for institutionalizing the practice of ongoing collaboration with neighboring regional associations to engage all Princeton alumni living in the state of Connecticut.”
