The first REBAA polo match was held by kind permission of Carlitos and Kim from Play Polo at Smewins Farm, White Waltham. The final was played by Team Tonic and Young’s Farm Polo and Team Tonic won, 4 to 2.5. Kim kindly explained the rules of polo which was received by the spectators with interest. There were pony rides for our younger members and after the match we were provided with a lamb bbq with all the trimmings, known in Argentina as an asado. The meat was cooked for 5 hours over an open fire, the food was in abundance and delicious. After eating we had a game of rounders to finish off a superb day.

We had a superb Rural Farm Walk at Church Farm last evening, attended by 90 REBAA farmers and councillors. We looked at crops and new forward thinking farm and environment methods, followed by a hog roast. Superb evening had by all.
