BC Rugby wrote this little piece about Seattle coming here...it sure fires me up. Didn't David beat Goliath anyway? Go Sheep! Thanks to Laurie Smillie for the heads up!
Seattle will have to travel to Port now, it's a David vs Goliath scenario with Seattle as the Goliath (population 3 million) vs Port Alberni playing David (population 18,000). Regardless of the mismatch one thing is for sure, Port won't shirk their responsibility and they'll face the challenge head on unlike some clubs this season. Win or lose this team of firemen, farmers, fishermen and loggers will show what BC rugby is really about - facing the challenge even when the odds are against you.
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of golf and a huge fan of the Alberni Golf Club. I have to sing their praises once more in regards to Junior Golf. Not only is the Open House great, and their program and rates fantastic, but I have been just blown away by the membership and the staff at the course and how they have treated my little guy Griffin since he has started golfing there over the last couple of years. One would think perhaps that a golf course isn't the place for a kid - I would have been one of those people. The reality is that it couldn't be further from the truth. Bruce, Kathy, Brian and all the staff have gone out of their way to make Griff feel welcome. Good, well behaved kids are welcome anywhere, and at the same time brats aren't! Whenever we are out on the course or on the range or chipping or putting everyone seems to take a lot of joy out of seeing a little guy out there.
I sadly won't make it, as I'll be at Morningstar Golf Course hosting the Gold in the Net Golf Classic to raise funds for the Aaron C Cornwell Memorial Scholarship Fund. If you want a great time for a great cause, get signed up ASAP! Click the above image for more details.
