HEARD Stefan Coszma (Triple Crown Winner Munich Summer Night Polo): “If Polo Events and Tournaments in Germany, and maybe other countries, were organized and staged as professionally as the Mitsubishi PIPA Beach Polo Grand Prix, Polo would have a much stronger media presence, more sponsors and many more visitors - leading to much higher growth rates!”
Bernd Hotz (German Polo Legend and Party Animal for more than 15 years): “Well done A Quechua - as always! We’re coming back…!”
TASTE Austrian and Carinthian food, stylish and local
SIP The usual + ‘Crodino’ – a new non-alcoholic drink - very tasty! & A Quechua cocktail (Their very own special mixture)
INTEREST The World Premiere: ‘Mitsubishi Car Polo Challenge’ was won by Bernd Hotz. Players were placed on Mitsubishi Pick-up truck and had 5 minutes to make as many goals as possible. This was great fun and proved a fantastic spectacle for guests, players and the media. At the PIPA Ice Polo Trophy (March 7th - 11th 2013) another even more powerful and fast version of Car Polo will be presented with 2 teams with each 2 cars, 2 drivers and 2 players playing against each other, playing for seven and a half minutes per chukker over 4 chukkers.
