Welcome to Thugdom
The Indonesian Rugby Football Union
is introducing the sport to Indonesian youth with a coaching programme at schools across Jakarta.
Wimp that I am, and the fact that I can't see without my glasses, means that I'm not a rugger fan. However, any effort to encourage the love of sports amongst kids and teenagers is to be encouraged.
So here's an (edited) announcement from IndoRugby.There will be a HUGE event at the JW Marriott Hotel on Saturday June 9th, the Annual IndoRugby Luncheon. The festivities will commence at 10am and conclude well into the evening!
The celebration of the game for thugs played by gentlemen
~ their words, not mine - J
. ~ will be attended by such All Time Legends of International Rugby as Mark Ella and Wayne 'Buck' Shelford.
)You will be treated to five star food and free flow drinks
~ which, I admit, sounds tempting
~ as well as the LIVE telecast of the All Blacks vs The French!!!
)Email Dave Nye for further details and to reserve your seat(s).
In case you're wondering why I'm somewhat sardonic in this post, it's because I object to receiving an unsolicited email invitation which, considering the message conveyed to you above, need only weigh in at a maximum of 100kb. The one they sent me weighed in at a massive 1.16mb, but thanks to my free email screening programme, AvirMail
, I was able to delete it from my server.
Gentlemen parading as thugs, indeed.
