New Year's Touch

 The annoying tradition of playing touch early(?) on New Year's Day continued for 2017.  We had a new record for the turnout with thirty players (eventually), multitudes of fans and seven chili dishes. It was a bit cold (around 3 degrees) with a light dusting of snow at kick off .
