Cocos vs Christmas Islands Sports Long Weekend

The Christmas Island Cricket and Sporting Club are organising

Christmas Island v Cocos (Keeling) Islands Sports weekend Sat 23/4 – Tues 26/4 2011

Following the success of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands long weekend of sports in 2010 the rivalry between the two Islands will continue over the 2011 ANZAC / Easter long weekend this year.

The program which is being developed including social functions and sports:

Saturday 23/4 arrive and Touch Football game on West Island (then to the Club for a BBQ dinner)

Sunday 24/4 Soccer challenge, cultural day and lunch on Home Island – or those who stay behind West Island Scroungers Golf – Fishing – Surfing

Monday 25/4 following the Dawn Service, Lunch at the Club may be some Two Up with the Cricket game to follow on West Island

Plus you could play a game of golf and enjoy the beaches do some fishing, surfing or just take a day off!

This is a great opportunity to join in and have fun - I was disappointed to hear that there's no mixed or women's Cocos (Keeling) Islands soccer teams because the men's teams are too good :( Where's the fun in that? Anyway, if I'm not on the pitch (playing for the Christmas Island Golden Old Bosuns) I'll definitely be leading warm ups and cool downs and helping out with sports massage for all the athletes.

The opportunities to be fit and active are everywhere!
