"Letchworth International Rugby Festival"

...or something like that. Has a certain ring to it I think? Perhaps we could call it "Canada Day". Wednesday 4th April anyway.

At the minute it looks like we will have players from...

I E Weldon (Ontario, Canada) - 26 girls
Letchworth (Herts) - Full team
Aylesbury (Bucks) - Full team
Towcester (Northants) - About half a team
Sudbury (Suffolk) - About four girls
Aylestone St James ("Jimmies") (Leicestershire) - Numbers TBC

Kitchens open from lunchtime - so food will be available from then.

Given that I am thinking about a 1.30 start and a fixture line-up (games 15 minutes each way) of roughly...

1.30 Letchworth v Aylesbury; "Tow-bury Jimmies" v IE Weldon
2.30 Letchworth v "Tow-bury Jimmies"; Aylesbury v I E Weldon
3.30 Letchworth v I E Weldon; Aylesbury v "Tow-bury Jimmies"
4.30 Food, relaxation, getting to know the Canadians, whatever....

Chances are very high that this will not be exactly how it will happen on the day - not least as it assumes we have sufficient players for four sides - we might have fewer, we might have more!

But the main aim is to have a fun, relaxed afternoon with everyone getting to play as much rugby as possible, followed by a "pleasent social evening" in accordance with the "best traditions of the game".

So if anyone has any bright ideas for "games" of a sort that will bring the teams together in a state or relaxed jolity (and occasional embarrasment) then let me or Joe know - especially if props are required (and I don't mean Laura and Rosie!). Bear in mind, though, that I E Weldon are a) a school team and b) come from a country where (I am lead to believe) some of the more liquid aspects of Nim's 18th birthday celebrations would be "severely frowned upon", so games that centre on the consumption of certain kinds of drink would probably not be a good idea.
