Saigon Prez, Dez, touches the punters up about a tournament tomorrow…
First up, I need to advise of some changes to training this weekend. Due to a touch tournament at RMIT we cannot train on Saturday so we have scheduled training for Sunday instead. It will be at the usual time: 2 30 pm sharp.
Secondly, with the Indochina Cup fast approaching on 27 November, we need to get as many runs in as possible. So, we have also arranged for a midweek session, which will be held on Wednesdays, 7 pm at Parklands, D2, starting next week. We would like everyone to make an effort to get to both training sessions so we can give ourself the best preparation possible. We have never won the Indochina Cup and this year we have a great chance to do so.
It is not going to be given to us so we need to put in the hard yards. We will also need to finalize the squad for the Cup so if you’re not at training, we will assume that your not able to play.
Touch Tournament tomorrow
The Swans will actually be fielding a team in the touch tournament on Saturday and we are still looking for two more guys to play. If you have played before and are keen, or would just like to give it a crack, please let me know asap. The event will run from 2 – 5 pm and there will be drinks provided at the ground.
Vung Tau Training weekend
On the weekend of the 13th November, we are planning a training session in Vung Tau at the dog track. We would like to make this into a weekend for those interested, or you can make it a day trip if that is your preference. Our new sponsor Strategic Marine will be providing a boat to collect everyone in HCMC and take us to Vung Tau on Friday night, plus return us on Sunday. More details to come, however we could look at a trip to the doggies on Saturday night which is an experience in itself.
Vietnam Swans/Vietnam Housewares Sale
The next sale will be held on the 6th November, at Snap Cafe (Tran Ngoc Dien, An Phu, D2) from 8 am to 2 pm. Make sure you come along and pick up some quality houseware at a bargain price. Everything went very quickly at the last sale, however we will have a lot more items this time around.
Lastly, I just want to send out the first heads up for our end of year Christmas Party, which we are planning to hold on Saturday 4th Dec. This is a day to let our hair down, and a chance for the Club to thank our sponsors and all of you, our loyal members. So make sure you keep that day free and bring the family as well.
Last year even Santa turned up. I am sure we can call him and ask him to drop past this year as well.
