Ride of the Legends – Matamata

This event hosted by the Matamata Rugby Club enables you to get up close and personal with some of our best known rugby stars.  This grass roots event is an opportunity to catch up with friends, have a bite to eat, enjoy some banter over a cold one and talk rugby!  All this while raising money for Conductive Education who support people with disabilities in New Zealand – they will be selling raffle tickets and have a few great items for auction.  A range of affordable meals available.
