This is the first Mockingbirds outing to Guam. Guam Rugby Club are the Phoons of Mirconesia. We'd planned this one for 2005, but didn't get around to it in the end. We are going to Guam instead of Manila this year. Manila is a great weekend, but several people have expressed wanting to go somewhere different, and the trouney's getting a little crammed.
We've got excellent connections to the Guam Rugby Club and they've been wanting us to come over for along time. They will be excellent hosts. And there's no need emphasise Guam is a very decent place if you're in any way inclined to scubadiving and surfing....! This one will be for the boys, if the girls ask, tell them there's nothing there but a US naval base and any beaches have been contaminated by the fall out from years of nearby French nuclear testing.
plan again is to leave around 1st Feb come back the 6th.
Days off work: 3 but dependent on flight availability
(fyi Chinese New Year is 16th-20th Feb)
All-in budget (flights, hotels, shirts) probably ~HKD3000 but will try to get it below this.
Accomodation, organisers are putting on 6-person bungalows!
Another two day 10s tourney, but only 12 teams http://www.guamrugby.com/Grit.htm
