Halloween

Who's Afraid of the Park?Disagreement on the Internet about the postcode for Chantry Park Ipswich but we did find it in time to attach ourselves to the last wave of halloweeners for St Elizabeth Hospice's Who's Afraid of the Park?  We immediately got detached from the wave by stopping to snap a frightener in the debilitating blackness.  Plenty of scary Miss Havisham type brides (including a genuinely ghostly pair) ... and we did jump a good few times:)

Bubble Rush in Christchurch Park IpswichJust so many happy faces engaging in the faintly subversive activity of getting covered in coloured foam on a Sunday in Christchurch Park Ispwich.  Bubble Rush organised by St Elizabeth Hospice was supported by hundreds of multi-coloured runners, walkers and foam divers.  We got to visit charming corners of the park for the first time and the Disney princesses made one little girl's day ... next year eh?

Post game hugging - Cards v StallionsAfter yesterday's 03-36 loss to the Wembley Stallions an Ipswich Cardinals coach pointed out to his players that as usual the Card's were way outnumbered, the Stallions were top of the division and the visiting coach said it had been the Stallions' hardest game so far this season.  We much admire the Card's perseverance but just a few more players would make such a difference.

Flying water bottleA light moment before yesterday's Ipswich Cardinals-East Kent Mavericks game when the visitors failed to shake hands with honourary captain for the day singer Sarah Probert so the referee sent the Kent captains round again:)  The Cards were looking competitive and scored first but the Mavericks had some very nippy (and slippery) runners for a Cards 51 to 28 loss.
