Polo Haus Blues

Posted: April 8, 2011 by Polo Camo in Uncategorized

I’ve got the blues over seein’ red.  I had a call from the Christchurch City Council yesterday and our beloved Polo Haus is to be demolished within the next week.  Apparently it poses a significant danger to public safety in its current state and we’ve been asked if we wish to salvage our gear (under the close supervision of a Civil Defence engineer).  It’s not too surprising I guess, just damn frustrating after working so hard to get possession of this and have the flood lights repaired all ready for a long winter of polo after dark.  I’ve got some back up plans for a medium term solution and we’ll keep on playing as best we can.  For now the light poles make good vantage points for passing gulls and until we get them pointing back at the courts it will probably be their best use…
