Canberra World League Road Trip – June 2014

Rather than tell a whole bunch of loosely connected stories that happened from the weekend…
and there are a few…
and many of them we couldn’t put on here anyway…
Instead, please enjoy a collage of pictures from our weekend.

Like any good road trip, it starts with a car ride (good story about the other photos in this series if you know it)

Canberra2014-1a

Getting to the hotel to get into our onesies.

Canberra2014-2

 

We tried to butter up the referee on the way in (it didn’t work)

Listening to the pre-match entertainment – James Blunt!

And he wanted a onesie of his own

Canberra2014-1-JamesBlunt

But what he really wanted was to be part of the group

James Blunt thrilled the crowd

Then we settled in to watch the matches

Canberra2014-7

Kids and all (way to go Emma…)

Canberra2014-3

 

And we even had a special guest among us! Current Volleyroo squad member Paul Carroll!

Canberra2014-11

 

Plus some other international…

Canberra2014-31

Some of us were louder than others during the game (and the singing of the national anthem)

Canberra-Danni

But we were hardly going to be a quiet, sedate, sitting still sort of group of supporters

Canberra2014-8

Some of us really rocked it (Loved the anthem Nam! Very Hendrix)

Canberra2014-5

 

But the dancing kangaroos was the money shot the TV cameras wanted

Canberra2014-4

We were certainly noticeable in the crowd

Canberra2014-1

And we won! Which means we were always a chance for a photo or 2 with a smiling player. Thanks Thomas Edgar!

Canberra2014-9

He is tall by the way. But he was standing next to some fairly short volleyballers.

Canberra2014-10

Thanks heaps to Deb for organising us all to get down there. We had a great time!

Canberra2014-6

Can’t wait for the Sydney round, coming up on 5th/6th July and then the finals on 11th & 12th July!

See you there!
