Polo aficionados and those looking to do something different Saturday will want to be in Barrington Hills.
It'll be the 13th annual LeCompte/Kalaway Trailowners Cup from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Barrington Hills Polo Club, 250 Deepwood Court. The LeCompte/Kalaway event is considered the biggest of its kind in the Chicago area.
Barrington Hills Polo Club has a lush green playing field in a tree-lined setting. The first matches are set to begin at noon.
For the first game, Jane Clement , president of the Riding Club of Barrington Hills, will throw out the first ball. For the second game, Bonnie Kalaway -- wife of the late Ben Kalaway, one of the individuals for whom the event is named -- will do the honors.
Adult tickets are $20, with children's 12 and younger free. Parking also is free.
LeCompte/Kalaway was conceived as a way to recognize the private homeowners in Barrington Hills who allow riding trails across their property. The private land links to Cook County Forest Preserve trails to form a network of nearly 200 miles of bridle paths through the area.
