There is room on the team bus to ottawa this weekend. We leave early Saturday morning returning noon from Ottawa.

$50 return ticket on the bus. Jen and I have room in our suite the cost would be less than $50 for the night.

So $100 gets you an overnight in Ottawa.

Let me know ASAP.

BTW I won't make you play football. Heck you don't even need to stay and watch the game if you don't want to.

So yesterday was the first outdoor practice for the woman's team this season. It was awesome! 12 players turned up which was about what I expected we started off with with a light jog around the park, stretching and then a 1km suicide run. It was fun to watch. I am quite certain I am far too out of shape, i was tired just watching and timing them.

What is a 1km suicide run you ask? It goes something like this.

run 10m out and back
run 25m out and back
run 40m out and back
run 50m out and back
you have now completed 4 suicides totalling 250m
repeat 3 more times.

It took between 5-6:30 for them to complete it.

Not too shabby.

Thrusday evening practice for the guys are riverdale park. looking forward to it.

I have lots of ideas for next Tuesday.

Preliminary Final thoughts

2.5 hours to the biggest match in my clubs short history. 6 years ago my previous club was this close and we failed to get the job done. This year, this club, will get the job done. I know they can do it.Trying to force down some food but the butterflies are all a flutter. I ready to go, leaving in 50 minutes for the field. Then everything becomes automatic, routine, then it is game time and all heck breaks lose for two hours. I have never wanted a win this badly.

If anybody is in the area of Kipling and lakeshore and is interested in going the game starts at 9:45am. come noon there will be a winner!

Sponsorship appeal - do you know someone who can help?

Here's the deal, I started a Women's Australian Football team. We are heading to the US Nationals in October. we need uniforms. we are looking for a sponsor or two.

$1200 sponsor gets your logo on the front of the uniform just below the left shoulder. Plus website, plus framed team photo and uniform.
$500 sponsor gets your logo on team tshirt,Plus website plus mounted team photo.
$75 sponsor get your logo on player profile, plus mounted team photo.

I have a really nice sponsor document and appeal letter that I can get to you if you have any leads. any help to get these ladies to the US Nationals and looking good would be appreciated.

Uniforms cost the team $1200. The entry fee for the Nationals is $450usd plus $50 per player.

Any little bit helps.

Thanks

Well that was fun

SO the first practice for the women's Australian football team has come and past. The weather was horrible so my expectations were low so when three women showed up I was very happy. A fourth showed up after we left because she was running late and didn't call me to say so. Very excited at the prospect of this actually working. I expect with nicer weather we will get more girls out.

First Practice Tomorrow!

So,

First practice for the new Central Blues Women's Australian Football team is tomorrow evening. I'm hoping that there will be a few girls out. I think this thing can grow. it would be really cool if it took off and we could take the team to the US on the thanksgiving weekend to play in the us nationals. So any of the ladies on the list want to come out and have a run around tomorrow evening we are up at the U of T on the Back campus fields. I promise it will be fun.

Australian Football for women!

First practice is Wednesday May 27th at 6:30pm even if it is just me their kicking the ball to myself.

Pojer tourney, Short notice!

__flatline__
Sorry for the short notice. I either missed the detailed email earlier or something. SO here are the details for all you poker players out there. The BLUES ANNUAL POKER TOURNEY:

Boys,

We are going to be having a Texas Hold 'Em Poker Tournament this Saturday, May 2nd 2009.
Don't worry, you can still go play in our Annual Blues & Whites match earlier in the day (details to follow for the match).

We will be having the Poker Tournament at our sponsor pub, The Ferret & Firkin (details below) starting at 1:00 pm.
The cost for entry is $25, of which $10 goes to the pot, $10 goes to help paying for our entry into the Canadian Nationals Tournament taking place a fortnight hence (May 16/17). The other $5 is a bounty, which means if you knock someone out, you get $5 in your pocket from him or her.

The blinds and pay schedule will be determined at the pub once we know what numbers look like. Most likely, it will be a top 3 'pay-out' system with some other prizes being handed out as well from our sponsor Fosters.

Bring out any friends, family, significant others, etc. so we can get a nice big pot built up! There will be food and drinks available and I'm guessing that we'll all be a little thirsty after the footy game.

Any questions, feel free to email or give me a call (416-553-8822).

Cheers and we'll see you then.

D-Train (DAN ZIMMERMAN)

Date: May 2, 2009
Location: Ferret & Firkin (720 Spadina Avenue - (416) 962-2016)
Time: 1:00 pm
Cost: $25.00
All invited!

USAIRs A320 just landed in the Hudson river. It's floating down the river as rescuers try to retrieve the passengers. Fascinating.
