A wine and cheese mixer is scheduled on the Friday evening from 7:00 until 9:00 at the Windsor Park pavilion to introduce the rules of play as well as to pick up your team package. The tournament will begin at 9:30 on Saturday which promises to be a day filled with fun for all.

Week of May 26th, 2006
The Canadian leg of the NA4 is underway in British Columbia. Two rounds of matches
have produced some remarkable performances, from sublime attacking excellence –
using lateral space, speed, support, handling and kicking - to the grit and determination
of extended goal-line stands defence, and the use of forward strength in effective
scrummaging and driving mauls.
Those who have been lucky to be spectators have enjoyed watching the birth of a new
and exciting addition to the North American Rugby calendar. I know the IRB is pleased
that its large strategic investment of dollars is already having desired effects. Players,
coaches and referees are all benefiting from engaging in this professional-like
experience. One senior Canadian official told me this week that he thinks the NA4 will
be a turning point in the history of the Game in North America.

Friends, Players and Fans of CW;

Just a reminder about Saturday's BIG GAME at SMU. Canada XV vs. SMUS XV.....both teams featuring a number of CW players. Kick off is at 3:00 p.m. however, ther are a number of games that you can take in for the price of admission, featuring High School teams with CW U16 players suiting up. Proceeds will be going to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, in memory of the daughter of Victorian and Canadian rep player, Chuck Shergold.

Owing to the size of the crowd expected, it has been suggested that the following recommendations be taken with regards to parking .....or Gillie and Wilam Greig have offered their driveway, given their proximity to the locale! Thank you - the Greigs. More appropriately, Camosun, Landsowne, Hillside mall or nearby streets. Hope to see you there.

Cricket and the Meaning of Life

CBC Newsworld will be broadcasting a documentary film, entitled Cricket and the Meaning of Life. This documentary deals with the most common immigrant experience: balancing the culture and society one comes from and the culture and society one comes to. Some of you are aware of this film and many would find it interesting.

The main appeal of this film will be for those of the Canadian South Asian communities and the Canadian West Indian communities because it deals with Cricket, though most immigrants will see in this story issues they face daily.

Given the importance of this game in these contituencies, we thought we would let you know about the broadcast and ask you to inform the many members of your community from these communities and to whom this film would bring joy. Below is a short description of the film.

We would be delighted to hear from you and from others on what the film meant to you at




In an extraordinary release by SMUS today , it was announced that all gate proceeds from their Centennial Weekend’s International rugby event would be donated to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CCFF), Victoria Chapter, in the name of the Chuck Shergold family.

This magnanimous gesture will bring enormous added pleasure to the SMUS fraternity, and to the rugby public of Canada.

Chuck Shergold was a revered and most loved gentleman, who represented Canada on the rugby National Men’s team on many occasions. His recent passing was a huge loss to the community at large, as was the loss of his daughter, Stephanie, who eventually succumbed in her courageous battle with cystic fibrosis.

The May 13th event now takes on added dimensions as a hallmark calendar event, as Canada faces up to a challenge from a SMUS International Invitational XV made up of overseas players and North America…


Sorry if this is a repeat request....I'm looking to make contact with a Veterinarian who would be willing to discuss setting up a 13 week coop term.
If we, CW, have any such connections would you email me or call to discuss.

Many thanks in advance.
