Introducing the Canadians

Mentioned this yesterday evening - and here is the school website.

Now there is no guarantee that this will all go ahead, but if it does we would hopefully play them on the afternoon of possibly 4th April (that is a Thursday - but you are on holiday then so no worries/ And our tour isn't until the following week, so no worries there either).

But to fill in on a few details, apparently...

  • The school is about 35 years old and named after a local lawyer who gave $1 million to the local education board. Its about the size of Highfield.
  • Its sports teams are nicknamned the "Wildcats"
  • They are quite useful - there is a report on the girls rugby team's season last year here
  • Apparently they play best when its cold, if the reports are to be believed. Quite how they cope with the mud we normally have in early April I'm not sure...
  • One of their leading players seems to be called Hailey (ok - different spelling)
  • The school is in Lindsay - a town of 20,000 people (so about two thirds the size of Letchworth) in Ontario an hour and a half east of Toronto (the biggest city). It actually all sounds a bit like East Anglia, and quite a few of the place names seem to be from East Anglia too.
  • For those who know their geography, Ontario in between Hudson's Bay and the Great Lakes
  • For those more geographically challenged Canada is a country in North America. On most maps its the big (often pink) bit above the USA but before you get to the North Pole.
  • And they do speak English!!!
