It’s that time again!

For the 16th year I have the onerous task of judging Santa Barbara Polo Club’s hat contest on Sunday at the spectacular Carpinteria locale after launching its high goal season with the Left Coast’s top tournament, the Netjets, USPA Pacific Coast Open on September 3.

The three categories for the mélange of magnificent millinery in the stands are the Most Colorful, Most Creative, and the Largest.

Hopefully we’ll have the usual torrent of tony tête toppers to choose from. Not so much Pacific Rim as Pacific brim!

Winners will also be featured in the following week’s issue of Miscellany….
