Please help a small surf lifesaving club

March 31, 2013

A friend has asked me to spread the word and solicit votes for Warrington Surf Lifesaving Club:

BP is running a nationwide competition for Surf Life Saving, where an IRB (Inflatable Rescue boat) is the prize for the club with the most votes. Warrington Surf Club was leading the votes, since a campaign was kick started by Columba College, after the incident at Purakunui, when the IRB from their club was used.

The boats are worth $25,000 and for a small club like Warrington, this would mean lots of raffles, sausages sizzles and quiz nights to raise the money to buy one.

Please support Warrington and go on-line and vote for Warrington Surf Lifesaving Club, and to pass this on to friends, workmates and family for their votes (voting closes on Sunday March 31, so not long to go!). One vote per email address, so multiple emails equals multiple votes.

Please visit select Southern Region and then Warrington SLSC. 


Lighten up IRB

October 5, 2011

Dear IRB,

Although the Rugby World Cup is gaining plaudits from all and sundry, every time you’re mentioned it’s in connection with something that makes you sound like a group of boring old farts, at best.

It’s time to lighten up.

If a bloke decides to make a public proposal to his girlfriend when they’re on opposite sides of the world and the official broadcaster chooses to help Cupid, that’s all part of the fun.

Instead of sending a no-marriage-proposals-on-TV message, you should relax and enjoy it, like the rest of us are.

Yours in rugby and romance,
