The Iglehart Cup is played in honor of Phillip Iglehart. Phillip was a seven-goal player and played on numerous championship polo teams. He was instrumental in founding the Polo Museum and Hall of Fame. Phillip was the key figure in relocating the Gulfstream Polo Club in Lake Worth, FL when development forced the club from its former oceanside location in Briney Breezes, FL.
Friday's opening games in the 2014 Iglehart Cup will feature CT Energia (Alessandro Bazzoni, Kris Kampsen, Joao Ganon and Nick Manifold) facing Palm Beach Illustrated (Jared Zenni, Guille Aguero, Marianito Obregon and Carlucho Arellano) in a 1pm contest followed by a 3pm game between Los Machitos/Heathcote (Steve Lefkowitz, Sterling Giannico, Matias Magrini and Hilario Ulloa) and Casablanca (Grant Ganzi, Lucas Lalor, Nic Roldan and Jeff Hall).
Both Palm Beach Illustrated has shown great promise in earlier 20-goal competition, displaying the veteran leadership of two-time US Open winner Magoo Laprida and three talented up-and-coming players in Jared Zenni, Tommy Collingwood and Facundo Obregon. CT Energia has introduced Brazilian 7-goaler Joao Ganon to the local polo fans and he's made quite a splash. The tall South American has shown to be a great scoring talent and a long run regular at the International Polo club. Local favorite Kris Kampsen and Nick Manifold round out a roster that has so far under-produced this 12 months, but have the talent to turn the season around at any time ralph lauren polo.
Casablanca's fifteen-year-old Grant Ganzi is believed to be the youngest team captain and player-patron to lead a 20-goal team onto the field in substantial goal play at the International Polo Club. The St. Andrew's sophomore has already been seasoned at the 20-goal level within the USPA National 20-goal and the USPA North American Cup very last fall, and played on the winning Audi team inside the finals of the George Haas Cup, the Ylvisaker Cup subsidiary.
Los Machitos/Heathcote is anticipated to take the field without the aid of 9-goaler Mariano Aguerre who has been sidelined with an elbow injury. Matias Magrini has ably filled in for him during his absence, but they will be dutifully tried in their match with Casablanca.
Two much more teams fill out the six-team field with Faraway (Hutton Goodman, Santiago Chavanne, Martin Pepa and Mariano Gonzalez) and Villa Del Lago (Jim Zenni, Agustin Obregon, Polito Pieres and Inaki Laprida) receiving first round byes. On Wednesday, March 5th at 1pm Villa Del Lago will face the winner of the CT Energia vs. Palm Beach Illustrated match with Faraway meeting the winner of the Casablanca-Los Machitos/Heathcote tilt at 3pm.
The final of the 2014 Iglehart Cup has been scheduled to be played at 1pm on Saturday, March 8th.

ARKANSAS’
 HIDDEN TREASURE

See the bluffs rising from the lake; experience the beauty of a secluded and natural Ozark forested shoreline; admire the deep blue clear waters, and take in the utter peace and serenity of this Ozark jewel.  Just a short 15-minute drive from Mountain Home, Norfork Lake is located in north-central Arkansas and extends into south-central Missouri.  With up to 550 miles of completely un-commercialized shoreline, the lake has a varying water level that fills the basin with up to 30,700 surface acres of pristine water within its 40 mile length.  As part of the White River system of flood control lakes, Norfork Lake was created from the impounded waters of the North Fork River.  

Norfork was the first lake to be created on the White River system. Constructed between 1941 and 1944, this has given Norfork a unique position among its sister lakes. All of the land surrounding Norfork Lake is the property of the US Army Corps of Engineers, builders of Norfork Dam and powerhouse.  Commonly called “The Corps Strip” or “The Government Strip”, this buffer of land is not determined by any particular distance from the shoreline but is actually based on elevation above mean sea level.  This makes for an area of completely undeveloped land that varies from a few hundred feet to more than a half mile away from the lake’s normal shore.  With this number based on elevation, the pristine shoreline is all natural Ozark forest. The only structures to be seen are a few fine homes sitting high atop bluffs, the occasional small family/fishing resort, or one of the 10 commercial marina and public park facilities strategically located about the lake.  

The ancient Ozark Mountains are old enough that much of the topsoil has eroded away, leaving bare rock and gravel for rainwater to percolate and filter through.  This natural filtration combined with the fact that no other lakes or major rivers empty into Norfork Lake makes its waters incredibly clear.  This same cleanliness also makes water sports, scuba diving, and fishing the lake’s top activities.  People travel from miles around to play in or on this incredibly clean, clear lake. 

For lake-goers looking for a body of water with unrivaled natural beauty, Norfork Lake definitely stands out among Ozarks lakes. Norfork Lake is not very crowded because there are no major metropolitan population centers within close proximity. This leaves Norfork Lake secluded and pure from the commercialization plaguing many other Ozark lakes. Since the lake is not nearly as crowded as others, fishermen, water sports enthusiasts, and nature lovers enjoy this big lake’s vast expanse of openness and hundred’s of secluded coves to fish, hang out or just hide out in. 

Norfork Lake and the Ozarks Mountains are calling you. Why not visit us soon!
