Marissa Wells, POLO P L A Y E R S E D I T I O N 19 R EVEREND TORIE FRONT, perhaps the only polo playing pastor in the United States, took time out before the start of a Cincinnati vs. Columbus polo match on July 8, to dedicate Isadora Joyce Marie Cunningham Everett among the horses and polo trailers. Isadora, the daughter of Columbus Polo Club member Terry Everett and his wife Sarah Cunningham, could be the fourth generation in that family to play polo. Both teams gathered in the shade on a beautiful summer day to show their support for Isadora and to stand together in unity before they became fierce competitors on the field. Front, of the Cincinnati Polo Club, and formerly of the Columbus Polo Club, was honored to be asked to dedicate the newest addition to the Everett family. "It was a lovely service, and great show of the fellowship our two clubs share," said Front, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, who has also officiated at two polo-based weddings over the years! "The Columbus Polo Club is basically one big family, anyway. So this is not so out of the ordinary for us!" polo club president Marissa Abram wrote on Facebook. After the polo match, teams and their families converged on the picnic grounds for a reception- style buffet to welcome Isadora into the polo family.

Use patience, especially in tight quarters, to give the play a moment to develop, then make your best decision. SanDiegoPolo@hotmail.com PARKER'S POLO MINUTE
