The Saigon Prez says it all.
The Weekly Update from the Saigon President, Derrin Limbrick.
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend off and are now keen to get your hands on the footy again especially fresh from our success at the Asian Champs. Training is back on this week, however we will be running the session at Parklands, 628 A Vo Truong Tuan St, District 2 (just off the Hanoi Highway). Make sure you bring your runners as we will be looking at a 6 km road run prior to training…
No, just kidding. Josh has actually got a light session planned which will include a lot of work with the footy. So it should be a nice, enjoyable afternoon.
After training, rather than hanging around for a beer, we have arranged a table at Al Fresco’s in An Phu, where we can share a few stories from the Asian Champs. It was a piece of history for our Club and we should all be enjoying the moment, especially considering how it really was a great team effort over the whole weekend. We encourage you to bring your families and partners along. We will be putting on a couple of cold beers and of course you can order food as required. As a special treat we will be running a slide show of photo’s from the weekend and possibly a short film based on the inaugural ANZAC Friendship Match in Vung Tau last year.

Bitexco Vertical Challenge, 30 October
This is going out to those who love the thought of running up 49 flights of stairs, are crazy bored, or are looking to scale new heights (no matter how strange it seems). To help announce the Bitexco Tower to the world, there will be a race from the ground floor to the viewing deck, which amounts to 49 flights of stairs. The race will be held on 30th October and we are considering entering a Swannies team. If you think this is something for you, let me know. For more information please .
