Millamolong Polo Carnival 2012

Wow, what a day! We got brilliant sunshine, great company, lovely food (we did bring it ourselves!), galloping horses, sexy men (also brought these ourselves) and superb activites. The Millamolong Polo Carnival is an awesome annual event and if you missed out, you definitely need to make the effort next year.

This year, we arrived on time and spent a relaxing morning on our rugs and blankets enjoying the sunshine and browsing the Sydney Morning Herald (provided with our tent - how thoughtful).

As more friends arrived, our food spread grew and we scored a whole heap of chairs from the lovely Ellie so we could avoid the unsightly struggle of trying to get up off the rug in skinny jeans and boots.

We slowly got the gist of the polo rules and loved the commentator who had us in stitches for most of the day.  Mr L'Orange even ended up walking away with a used polo ball.

Beer and wine flowed as we watched the different games and mingled with guests from other tents. In the race between the horse, the volvo and the helicopter at the end of the tournament, the horse stormed across the finish line.

Best plate of the day
The Millamolong organising team have thought of everything, they have created a VIP tent, large kid's activity area to keep the little nippers amused plus everything you could want to eat and drink on a day out. There are tents set up with hay bales for various groups and families to hire with drink cooler bags delivered to the tents by quad bike.

We all headed home completely relaxed and refreshed after a beautiful day out that we know is going to be even bigger and better next year.
