Hands up all of you who are aware that the “Commonwealth Games” are on in
In fact they are at day 6 which is the half way mark, these are a serious rival to
the Olympic Games for the nations of the
athletes from 107 nations competing, mind you a lot of those are small island
nations, but it covers about ¼ of the worlds population.
Now I’m not doing a promotion of the games, I am a very casual observer of the
main events on television, as would be expected, Australia, with our proud
sporting record and a home crowd advantage, is doing very well in the medal
I’ll do a final wrap up when the games finish of medal tallies, world records
that are set, there have already been a few, and any other worthwhile data.
My main reason for bringing this up was to advise that my son Marcus, who is
the chaplain at the Bussleton High School, has , with one lady teacher, taken a
group of 12 girls across the country to attend said games, as well he has taken
his two youngest sons.
This group who are all suitable decked out in patriotic clothing, have been
mistaken for competitors almost everywhere they go, so much so they are
thinking of claiming to be the Australian Women's Volleyball side.
Link to Marcus here, he is a blogging machine at the best of times and now
with an event this size to cover he has created a blog of their adventure, I
recommend it to you for a more personal coverage than you would find in
