My very proud moment

Recommended Posts

Miss Jewels

My eldest son (24 in Oct) was chosen for the squad for WP Amateur Rugby 2012. They will represent WP at the SA Rugby amateur provincial competition in Oudtshoorn from 26/8 to 01/09. The official team received their kit and clothing this evening....and I invited myself along with the camera.

I'm bursting at the seams with pride.....just had to share this with you all

Congrats!

(and just another event in our little dorpie... so much happens here with regards to sporting events that it is sometimes also known as the sporting capital of SA...)

@C - is this not a good excuse to follow him and pop in for a visit? ;)

Haha J....I'm definitely coming up. Will be popping in to see your shop too. Just need to know where they're playing so I can organize accomodation at a B & B. Any suggestions?

Depending on the level of "comfort" you are seeking, there are several options. For simple self-catering, Klein Plaas is a definite must. For self-catering with breakfast (and other accom options) there is Attakwas. At some of the backpackers (only the ones in Langenhoven or Baron van Reede Streets are recommended), there are private cottages or family rooms so you don't have to "share" accommodation with others. Personally we have stayed at NR Smit resorts (very similar to Klein Plaas - mom's stayed there and was impressed) and Attakwas, but there are many places in town.

Congrats Miss J. One of my proudest moments was when my eldest snapped up the job as PA to the GM of WP Youth Rugby.

Congrats to your son Miss J. What a great photo - I think he will look good in a Springbok jersey one day...

Congrats, Miss Jewels. You must be the most wonderful mother in the world so it's no surprise that your sons are great achievers.

 

Now - if you're going as far as Oudtshoorn, why not carry on to Grahamstown?

Hi. Yes, he's preferred position is tighthead, but can also play loosehead...so he has an advantage.

The least (publicly) rewarded position in the team. You can have the best fly-half or wing in the world, but without the front row they are nothing.

Keep well and regards

Our stay is booked in Oudtshoorn! We will be spending the whole of next week with the squad supporting them. The WP Amateurs were the competition winners in 2011, so obviously the same is expected from this squad.

As I've just spoilt myself with a tab, I will continue to be on-line.....

Travel safely, Miss Jewels. (Yes, I know I've said this before but you are more precious than all your jewels put together!)

 

And best of luck to your son and his team. May they have a resounding win!
