The Art of War
The next stage in the development of Xtreme Sports in the Islands will be the introduction a paintball site. If you have not checked out the survey doing the rounds then you can get to it via this link http://www.falklandsxtreme.doodlekit.com/home/news. Please take a moment of your time and complete as we are aiming for 100 responses with 72 completed so far so on target. The response has been epic with 94% of people wanting to see this introduced and chomping at the bit for it to happen. The wheels are in motion, suppliers have been sourced, equipment located and work on obtaining site underway. Paintball could be the catalyst for many other sports to follow.
The ball hockey season is close to ending with the Morrison Xtreme League now over and the Dynasafe BACTEC Xtreme Cup underway. a 5 game series with Hill Cove Hurricanes v Walker Creek Warriors and Port Howard Patriots v Goose Green Cavaliers. The Hurricanes sponsored by Terrys UPVC Doors and Windows took the first game in their series with a 5-4 win, coming back from 4-2 down. The Warriors sponsored by Saddle Direct were unlucky not to win even with fielding an army! It was good to see Melvyn Clifton back between the sticks after being off with a bout of injuries. The Warriors have it all to do in the next game to ensure they do not fall away in the series.
Dont forget the Sponsored Walk on 12th February at 2:00pm starting at the IJS gym hall with the route to the Beaver Hanger and back to the gym hall. Please come along and support and dont forget to donate as all proceeds will be going towards the IJS youth leagues. If you can please donate cakes for the cake stall at the end of the event.
The ISBHF are in regular contact with us and are looking to assist with a coach and have taken it to the next AGM and we are hopeful that a coach can be identified and brought down in September to tie in with the start of the 2017/18 season. This would be excellent news for the club and its players as we look to build up to the 2019 World Championships.

Football beckons so here is hoping to Liverpool's first win in the Premier League in 2017 I dont think I cant take much more of the Facebook memes and constant barrage of jokes. Its all getting too much and its very difficult to retaliate in jest :) But then losing to Wolves in the FA Cup isn't as bad as Sutton Utd is it ;)
