OPSAGE: January / February 2010

Wed 13 January 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

If, other than our regular indoor football games, anyone would like to propose a project, sport, activity, game or event over the next month or so, please add a comment below.

For representative or brokered games, it may make sense to stick to the following days/times when pitches may be more readily available:

  • Mondays or Fridays:  9 to 10 or 10 to 11 pm
  • Tuesdays to Thursdays:  10 to 11 pm
  • Saturdays:  4 to 5 pm
  • Sundays and public holidays:  10 to 11 am or 4 to 5 pm

Anyone proposing a representative/brokered pitch should check on the availability of a pitch.  Contact numbers are set out below for ease of reference:

  • The Cage – 63449345
  • Turf City – 64668211
  • Sports Planet – 93266635

The following teams have been available for representative/brokered games:

  • Dennis W’s team – Saturday or Sunday afternoons/evenings
  • Mark T’s team – Wednesday nights or Sunday mornings
  • Suraj/Anil’s team – Monday nights

Apart from the above, Neil M, Elvin and Jye have teams that may be available on Sunday evenings.

If anyone wishes to propose a representative/brokered game, it would make sense to do so at least a week in advance.

As I’ve said before, I have two concerns about regular sessions being used for representative games or brokered games:

  • Representative or brokered games deprive several regular participants the opportunity to play that session.
  • In regular sessions, an effort is made to make sides even, and to keep the game friendly. In representative games, no effort is made to keep the sides even, and there is a risk of the game being less than friendly.

I also received the following SMS from Mark T yesterday:

Are there players who are competitive and willing to take part in a league?  We are looking for more players.

If anyone is interested, add your name below.

    I received the following e-mail from Edardy yesterday:

    Hey Rajiv,

    Do you mind spreading the word about my farewell/30th bday cum charity event to the boys and their family/friends of FIOFAFI?

    Don’t buy me drinks or presents. But donate. The charity is a school centre for women and children in Afghanistan. Education was previously banned for them. All their teachers are volunteers and amongst these teachers, is a good friend of mine who will be representing the school at my party. We need to get them noticed before an NGO takes over the responsibility and provides support. Currently, it’s an independant foundation supporting them. http://www.raziasrayofhope.org

    SO! Contribute any amount at the party and enjoy Happy Hour till midnight. There will be great music as well!

    Drinks menu is as follows:

    All listed below is going for $11.75/2drinks till midnight if you contribute any amount. Can’t go wrong!

    BEER
    1. Tiger
    2. Heineken
    3. Stella

    W INE
    1. Red Cabernet Sauvignon
    2. White Sauvignon Blanc Gran Hacidena Santa Rita.

    SPIRITS will be gin, vodka, rum, whiskey, bourbon with house mixers.
