Eastern Angles Fenland ScreamersIt must be well over a decade since we saw an Eastern Angles Christmas show and we don't recall the now available free parking at the rear of the Ipswich theatre but it's still a small cast working their socks off.  Saturday it was five actors who had Fenland Screamers tightly polished prompting laughter and applause from the audience.  We got to be part of a rope bridge and had an actor sit on our lap ... unfortunately not one of the ladies.  The show continues this month including a run at the Seckford Theatre Woodbridge.

The pink bubble stationDespite miserable weather yesterday a very decent turn out for St Elizabeth Hospice's Bubble Rush in Ipswich.  For the first hour or so the weather flirted with raining but then got going along with a chilling wind but rushers kept rushing, the arch on the blue bubble station reenacted the flamme rouge collapse in the 2016 Tour de France and the stewards at the finish kept dancing and giving cheerful encouragement.

Ipwich Cardinals 10-21 London Blitz BWe weren't optimistic about yesterday's Ipswich Cardinals v London Blitz B because the Cards had lost 55-00 to the Blitz earlier this year.  In the event on a roastingly hot day (thankfully with a breeze) the Cards led 10-00 for most of the game.  Finally the Blitz offence broke out (they'd been threatening to do it all game) to score two ... more here

Following a 55-00 loss against London Blitz B the weekend before last the Ipswich Cardinals american football continued a now 3-1 winning season after a 42-06 win over visitors Maidstone Pumas last weekend who despite being much outnumbered stuck at it good humouredly.

The Ipswich Cardinals may have lost their away game at London Blitz B on Sunday but their 2-1 season so far is still an encouraging improvement on the last couple of years.  The Cards' first home game of the season 2:30pm kick off this Sunday.

Ipswich SEVEN 2-0 Ipswich EastWho would have thought it?  There are two hockey teams in Ipswich, SEVEN and East.  Sunday the ladies second teams were derbying next to the Ipswich Cardinals practice.  SEVEN won two nil and it was preceded by something that involved loud(ish) pop music but we couldn't give it much attention as we needed to avoid being flattened by american footballers.

National Cyclocross Championships in IpswichSometime in the early nineties we went to the National Cyclocross Championships in the woods by Ipswich's speedway track ... it was a low key event.  In 1983 we went to the World Cyclocross Championships in Birmingham ... it was a low key event.  The 2018 national championships are in Sunderland and being streamed by the BBC live tomorrow ... perhaps not so low key.
