Just 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?

After 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.

Like so many we were charmed by Ipswich man the late Brian Cant's easy going charm. He passed away last Monday aged 83.

A 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.

We're great fans of Tom Lehrer here and still treasure his gentle put down of Roy Plomley I think you're confusing arithmetic with mathematics. Tribute The Remains of Tom Lehrer at the Ipswich Wolsey tonight. ♫

An absolutely cutting east wind across the Northgate playing field Sunday but a very encouraging 53 seniors and juniors for the Ipswich Cardinals new players session. These American football prospects try out both offensive and defensive drills with just a little padded contact. The Cards are doing it again next Sunday.
