Letchworth Schools Tag Festival

A brilliantly successful tag festival took place at the club yesterday, with a disproportionate amount of the organisation and running of the event coming from the girls section (Mike, Simon, Wonky and others). Unfortunately I missed it all due to an outbreak of German Measles amongst staff in a school in Bedford (food tech... French... social studies... I know where I would rather have been!), but I gather that some 400 children played in a tournament that lasted throughout the day and that Lordship won prety much everything.

One great thing I heard from the NHDC people there (thanks to the council without whom it would not have been possible) was that the vast majority of children there were "not the usual suspects" - ie. the children who turn up to every sports event - so maybe we might attract a few players from it all.... here's hoping!

If anyone who was there has any more information or insights (or pictures) please pass them on. Such a great success deserves all the coverage it can get, so let's tell the world what brilliant tournament organisers Letchworth RFC are (and especially the girls' section)!
