With a 10-7 victory over the Fort Collins crew, Foco Polo. Stompaz took 3rd with a hard fought win over Foco Polo Tebow. The Roaring Fork Ladies took a convincing win in their first Can Cup appearance, over the Durango Ladies who have won 3 Cups in the past. Besides all that, it was a great day of polo. Great food, music, drink and conversation on the sidelines. Looks like we have the Cup for now and rumor has Fort Collins wants to host one around either 420 or Tour de Fat. We want to put it out there that Ouray town park and hot springs and finals at the outdoor hockey rink would be amazing in august. Its polo time, Happy Snolo!

Its true, Purango Dolo has been blanked for 2012 on the grass. For the first time, durangoans have not won a regional, super, or grand master grass tourney in 12 calendar months. Nothing to worry about is what several people have suggested. Rumor has Kerma Inc., may pull shaft product sponsorship for 2013-14 as a direct result of the winless season. This past tourney in Buena Vista. Colorado went down in history with Fort Collins taking the win again to take the season Colorado Can Cup Title. Durango sent its two strongest in Alex and Lee, but got taken this time. Rumor has an astrix will adorn the Cup Trophy champion etching, but a title it was nonetheless. Rumor has Durango hosting the spring cup with a event simular to spring 2011.
*Interesting to note that on the hardcourt scene, Purango Dolo went 1 for 1, winning the Denver Hardcourt Tourney on a come from behind second day undefeated run. It was Alex and Lee with FC’s Evan. Well Played.
