New Years Levee 2015

New Years Touch (two games of best of seven)

Venue: Alway Field

Referee: everyone

Weather: zero degrees with a brisk wind from the south west there was no snow on the ground

Attendance:  estimates are between 4 and 40 depending upon alcohol consumption. (probably closer to the 4)

Team:  Frank Shulte,  James Vinneau,  Martin Colyn,  Brendan Vorstenboch, Nick Lord, Alex Millar, Dillon Kinch, Dean Nasby, Jake D'Achille, Nick Lemieux, Bill Stabler, Chris Atkinson, Vic Blaney, Derrick Weber, Jon Millington, Alex Easton,   Brad Vorstenboch, Adam Meehan, Ross Matheson, Craig Evans and Will George. (21 is a new modern record)

Spectators:  Some cold bodies.

Some of the action:  If the pictures do not look good it is because I switched the camera to take athletic shots and the poor thing did not know what to do.

Vic got the season wrong.

Best dive of the day

I wonder who is scoring this try.

Best hat of the day
Our chili judges (former club presidents)

Brendan: 2015 Chili winner (secret ingredient was moose meat) 
"A Hooligan's Game" blog was looked at a record 7 thousand times in 2014 which was almost 1500 more than in 2013.  The biggest story was Brooker cup VIII blog with 178 hits which moved it to fourth all time. The most looked at blog all time continues to be Wilmot away in 2010 with 405 hits.  "Detritis" a poem by Les Barker which was read at the 2013 dinner moved into second place with 225 hits.  The blog has been hit 23,717 times since Dec 2008. Every now and again we get a hit from New Zealand which I am sure is Dean seen here in New Zealand at Eden Park  in Auckland last year in his Grimsby Rugby Jersey.
