We put out chairs and tables, brought along some catering, and plugged a t.v. into the projector to screen the match on the north wall of the church hall, pained white.  About fifteen people turned up, mostly from the church.  There were a handful from the community who came along to watch the game.  In some ways this was a disappointing response.  Otherwise everyone had a good time, enjoyed the game and enjoyed the company.

It was an exciting game.  New Zealand took the lead.  In the second half the French made wave after wave of attacks to equal the score.  They couldn’t break through New Zealand’s defence.  I loved to watch the ball in play.

Everyone went home happy.  Our next event will be a Candidates’ Meeting in November before the National Elections.  That one is always well attended.  I’m looking forward to it.

I’m also considering going to the Phoenix Roar match played between the Wellington Phoenix and the Brisbane Roar at the Dunedin Stadium in December.  I haven’t been to the Stadium yet.  That could be a good game.
