Thanks to all the coaches, players, parents, fans, officials and vendors who participated in the Chapter Challenge this past weekend.
Thank you in particular to the teams that played Sunday in the wet and cold conditions and who labored to set up a very robust and spirited Team Tent Village to provide shelter, relative warmth and manifest camaraderie between games. You guys were serious troopers, and you had a great attitude throughout.
We hope you enjoyed the event and visiting the Glen Willow Field Complex, which is known for hosting steeplechase and horse “combined-driving” competitions. We were fortunate to find this “field of dreams” facility after learning that Brandywine Polo Club could not host our event this spring due to field conditions there.
Thank you also for the many notes of thanks we received letting us know your teams enjoyed the tournament in spite of the weather. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and flexibility as we tried to improvise following a few team cancelations and the non-arrival of several umpires who did not want to officiate in the rain. Some even noted with humor that the event was aptly named!
Hopefully all of you had moments of warmth, dryness and comfort, were well fed and had fun among friends in the scenic and rolling hills of Southern Chester County.
Please enjoy the remainder of the season. We certainly hope to see many of you again next year in Mushroom Country at the 5th Annual Chapter Challenge (April 29/30, 2017)!!
Also, please see the below links for some of our upcoming events – we hope to see you there!
