The 11th Annual Victory Cup!

Victory Cup – presented by Black Stone USA – was an annual social event and fundraiser that Senator Greg Ball held during his time in office. Now that Greg has returned to the private sector, Victory Cup lives on as a private, for profit event and “The Best Party of the Summer”.

This event is being held, in part, as a fundraiser for two cherished not for profits:  The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Dell Children’s Medical Center. The Victory Cup has consistently grown in both New York and Austin, and approximately $25,000 was donated to various charities in 2015.

Get dressed up and come enjoy several polo matches and then watch the Derby on a huge Mobile LED Screen on the polo field!    This is not your typical uptight polo match.  Come ready to party and enjoy an amazing farm to table meal prepared by local chefs on the polo field.

There will be a car show with tons of classic automobiles on display including Land Rovers!   Spread the word and take advantage of this opportunity and enjoy this kid friendly, pet friendly event while taking in classic cars, enjoying a picnic lunch, or just watching a riveting polo match with surprise celebrity players.

Land Rover invites you to come out and enjoy this spectacular day of cars, food, fashion, majestic horses, beautiful people and heart pounding polo!

The 2016 Victory Cup/Derby Day will be taking place on May 7th and is located at 13628 Gregg Manor Rd, Austin, Texas.  Call Land Rover Dallas for more information or feel free to visit the Victory Cup website.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Each year SCARR attendees enjoy good times with family and friends while meeting fellow Land Rover owners from around the country. Past attendees have come from all over the country as well as from England, Europe and South America.

Since the first event held in 2003, attendance has steadily grown over the years – 2015 brought 102 vehicles and over 210 attendees. Texas Rovers has reserved the entire park once again this year. Some of the SCARR events will include daily trail runs, a driver’s challenge and activities for the kids.SCARRpic1

Happy Birthday Your Majesty!

Land Rover Dallas is proud to announce that The British Emporium in Grapevine, Texas will be celebrating Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday and her historic landmark as Britain’s longest reigning monarch with two open house events!quuen

The first event will take place on Saturday, April 23 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., followed by the second event on Saturday, June 11 to coincide with royal celebrations being held in the UK. Refreshments and a sampling of traditional British foods will be served. Both events are free and open to the public.

Many royal celebrations are taking place to celebrate this special year for The Queen. The Queen celebrates two birthdays each year: her actual birthday on April 21 and her official birthday on a Saturday in June. Official birthday celebrations for British monarchs are often held in the summer, when there is a greater likelihood of good weather for the annual Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour. At this spectacular event, Her Majesty will be joined by other members of the Royal Family as a military parade moves between Buckingham Palace, The Mall and Horseguards’ Parade in London.

According to Sheela Kadam, “The Queen is a beloved and recognized figure around the world. Steadfast in her dedication and duty, she is an inspiration to us all. We join the British community in North Texas in wishing her a happy birthday, pay tribute to her long reign, and offer a place for expatriate Brits and local residents to come and celebrate this very special royal event with us at the most British spot in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.”queen2

For 24 years, The British Emporium has provided British groceries & gifts and hosted community-related events such as royal celebrations, car shows, Doctor Who parties, meet-and-greets with VIP visitors from Great Britain. Owned by Sheela Kadam, the store is a popular gathering place for expat Brits and Anglophiles alike.

Have you seen The Queen, met Her Majesty or been honored by her? Do you have something in common with her or have a story to tell?   Come and share your tales at The British Emporium!

 

The British Emporium is located at 140 North Main Street, Grapevine, Texas 76051.
