Teams are required to show up at least two hours before their game starts. They are required to saddle the horses they are playing as well as clean stalls and clean tack for the horse strings they use. Work crews need to be at the arena one hour before the game starts to prepare the field, keep score, time games, flag goals, fetch balls , have extra equipment handy and help in whatever is needed to run the tournament.

Those schools whose horse strings will be used will need to show which equipment goes on which horse for the upcoming game and have a horse manager team there two hours before the game to assist the players playing those horses. This is a cooperative team effort in taking care of all the horses, tack, facilities and functions needed for the games.

The banquet will be held on Friday, February 4th, at 7:00pm at the Santa Barbara Polo Clubhouse. Semi-formal attire will be appropriate. Dinner is $25.00 per person, please see Wilbur O'Ferrall for tickets.
