2008 IOST Review

For the second year in a row we managed to qualify for the plate competition, unfortunately this year we lost all of our games in the plate competition on Sunday so we didn't make the final this year.

Saturday started out quite well, as normal we lost our first game but everyone was feeling good and then sun was shining. However, from a weather perspective at least, the day went downhill from there. It pretty much rained non-stop for the rest of the day but we did manage to win 2 games despite (or maybe because of) the conditions! We finished Saturday 2 for 5 and qualified for the plate competition on Sunday.

Thanks to everyone for coming down and especially to our super-subs!

** UPDATE **
Some pictures from the weekend, there are more out there so don't forget to send them in, thanks
