What a day we had in Nanaimo! Six U11 teams (Castaways-Victoria, Velox-Victoria, Cowichan, Nanaimo, Campbell River and the Comox Valley Kickers) + 4 U13 + 4U9 teams (our U9 player hooked-up with Cowichan for his first rugby game) =130 players with 5 separate games being played at any one time!
 All our kids played with heart. This was our second game of contact as a club and the first game for 5 of our new players. Everyone did well but a special congratulation to those first time players who matched our overall commitment and enthusiasm. We learned a lot yesterday and still had fun.
Post-game_fun Thanks to all the parents who made the trip and supported their player, to Ona Thorington who kept things rolling as well as everyone else who lent a helping hand. Special thanks to Melissa McLachlan for the pics which are posted on our Facebook page at:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Comox-Valley-Rugby-Rascals/261788750608920
A reminder that this Wednesday’s practice is at 5:00 PM @ Fallen Alders Hall on Royston Road with our Sunday practice scheduled for 1:00 PM @ Comox Recreation Centre.
Next jamboree: Cowichan will host at Shawnigan Lake April 7th at 10:00 AM instead of at Cowichan on March 24th (Spring Break). This means a long day for ourselves and CR however it promises to be a festive occasion held on the same pitch as Canada has played on in past years, plus our attendance increases the probability of Victoria teams coming here in succeeding years.
