What a great day! The sun was out, the clouds were few, and the people were plentiful! We started with 12 people out on the field right at 10am which was a compliment to the fine weather. It wasn’t long before we had two fields going and came in with about 35 people who turned out to play some touch.
The first few games were pretty tight thanks to Kill taking the ref position. A few of us took turns refereeing which was good to see. This will put us in a good position for refs come the summer touch competition.
We had a few new people out too which was good to see. Anne was back with a few of her friends, then E bought a few of his mates who were almost just as quick on the field. Needless to say we had some good speed on the field. It was only luck that Jose didn’t come out on the field otherwise we would all be exhausted and probably would finish a little earlier.
Despite the speed, Terry and Joe made an unbeatable team… Well, at least for one play. Joe passed a single handed spiral pass which found it’s way to Terry. Enosh tried to cut back to get Terry, but must’ve felt sorry for the old bugger. The end result was Terry scoring which we all know is a rare event! Joking aside, it was a nice play and needed to be mentioned.
We finished the day as we always do with a first to 3. The fatigue was starting to set in but we all managed to have a great time. Afterwards the brew flowed and the conversations started. It was great to see Struan and Jose stop by to join in the social.
A few notes: the summer touch committee will be having a meeting on Thursday. More details will follow closer to the time. We are still aiming to send a team to nationals in October. Keep this in your calender. We will look at starting training around the summer touch competition.
Have a good week and we’ll see you out next Sunday!
