The President´s Letter

The President´s Letter: February 2012

Dear Members and friends of Puesto Viejo,

Welcome to a new season of polo at Puesto Viejo. We recently finished the first tournament of this year, “La Copa de Patrones”, and we must congratulate La Tortona Polo Plus who won the cup at the finals on February 5th. We are now starting our second tournament, a 6-goal handicap, and have at least 6 teams confirmed.  We will continue with tournaments until the end of May. I am proud to say we welcome back not only some familiar faces but also some new members.

Unfortunately, I am very sad to say a few words about a member who we recently lost in an accident during a hunting trip. I am sure everyone has heard this awful news, but the whole Puesto Viejo team wants to express heartfelt condolences to his family. Nicolas was a well loved member. He was left-handed but had a talent and an eye better than many of our amateurs, but over all was a gentleman on and off the field with a great sense of humor and friendly personality. We will miss him greatly.

Speaking of things not so sad, I’m happy to tell you that your club continues to grow. It is too early to describe all the details now but I can confirm we will start building a fourth field and we will be developing real estate around it. I can also tell you that the hotel continues to grow with a significant increase in bookings this past year. It is important for you to know these things so that you can trust that Puesto Viejo will continue to grow and develop in the long term.

Finally, my greatest wish is that you enjoy a good season with us, playing competitive matches with good sportsmanship.

Best of Luck,

Jeremy Baker
