An Unexpected Priviledge

Bev and Neville Carter and the world famous in Southbridge, Goal Posts

At present swmbo and moi are on a six day safari around Selwyn County to end with two nights at Hororata where we will attend the annual Highland Games on Saturday.

Our tour guide and master planner Ken set up Tuesday night stop over at the Southbridge Rugby grounds.

The man who opened the Bar for Happy hour and then entertained the assembled for over an hour was Dans Dad who in the much simpler times of a few decades ago was himself an accomplished 1st five for Southbridge, Ellesmere and Canterbury Country and he was such a great mine of information and entertainment, much of which I cannot and have no wish to repeat here.
As an insight to just what a top sportsman endures as part of the big game c2014 it was priceless.

Pictured above with the now famous Goalposts on the adjacent section in Southbridge, two of the finest people you could meet in life.

Thankyou Neville for a wonderful time of history, country pride, and some wonderful background to where Dan the Man came from.
