SuperTeams 2007 - don't miss it!

The date for SuperTeams 2007 has been set and it is....
Sunday 8th July

For those who do not know what this is... boy have you missed out over the past two years (see here for a report on last year).

Essentially is a sort-of "Its a Knockout" multi-sport event, and is huge fun. And quite profitable too - there are cash prizes and we have won something in each of the past two years.

The complete list of events is not announced until the day, but some seem to be fixtures so we can probably expect games based on the like of hockey skills, basketball, and badminton as well as the dreaded gym tests. In addition though there will be a number of fun events, which in past years have included sumo wrestling, rodeo bull riding, pugil sticks, and "joust".

Each of these events have had resulted in some memorable performances over the years - Nichola's 100% performance in basketball let down by her team-mates missing every shot; Katie showing how not to play hockey, Hayley G being unbeatable at sumo, Hayley A being matted by her erstwhile teammates at joust, Fern effortlessly winning on the bungee run, Nim showing why its a good job she chose rugby over football - but maybe above all the sight of Joe, Katie, Nim and Chloe being murdered by Nichola, Carla, Mel and Adam at gym tests!

We can enter four teams of four or five people - though one theoretically has to be male, which has sometimes been our undoing in the past as the male team member has tended to underperform (Joe in particular can forget a career in rodeo) while the male side of the club has shown no interest in anything other than the resulting cheques. So if anyone has any reasonably athletic brothers/ friends/ relations in the right age group could you start pushing for them to take part - now?

If it is the same as last year two of the teams will be for ages 11-13, and two for ages 14-17 - but note it is AGE ON THE DAY (so Joe - and Nim - are excused this year).

Let me know if you are interested.
