Are there any Cowtown NTS alumns out there making plans for 2003 in Australia? In 1999 we turned the Brits upsidedown. Just think what the alreay-upsidedown Aussies will think of us. I`m going one way or another but would love to tour with y`all again Kimber

Regarding Bali and ruggers.

I am in touch with some Aussie ruggers and some trusts are being organized to assist the victims of the Bali bomb. In my mind, I see it as similar if a bomb went off during our Cowtown Tourney pub crawl, wiping out 2/3 of the participants.

I am sure all are aware that ruggers were the largest contigent of Australians maimed or killed at the bomb site.

Please email me if you are a fellow rugger wanting to help out and I will forward the information I am getting from various clubs in Australia:

I know many ruggers from many places check in on this website. Please read the following in regards to the tragedy our brother ruggers from SE Asia have suffered in Bali. As all of you know, the Sari Club was the main place for ruggers finishing a popular 10s tournie and also many ruggers from Australia would go to Bali to celebrate their end of season. The results have been catastrophic for many Austrlian communities with rugby as the center, and for many clubs from Hong Kong to Taiwan to Singapore to Australia/New Zealand. A rugger from Austrlia sent me the following emails regarding fund raising. I will post more as I receive them:

"We are also waiting for further information on this charity that is being set up. Will advise more when I get further info: (A copy and paste below and cc`d to the ISCi club whom may contact you directly for donations)

The family of the young guy from ISCI, Robert Thwaites, have set up the foundation/ trust for the orphaned Balinese children. His brother Ben used to play
colts at the Breakers with some of the Colleagues Boys. They own a construction company in Indonesia and are going to build accommodation in Bali for the orphans apparently. I don`t actually have details of the trust yet but can
make a few calls once things settle down a little. Do you have any email contact details from any of the ISCI guys - they might know rather than
contacting the family directly."


"Dear All

To follow up on Jay`s note I would like to thank everyone for the support you have shown towards Lis and and Neil`s family in difficult circumstances.

I would like to focus on what we can do now for Lis and Neil`s family. As some of you are aware the Singapore Cricket Club has been raising money for those families affected by the tragedy and The Economist are also aiding in some way.
We would like to raise a fund for Lis and also contribute to the cost of the funeral service. I would therefore like to appeal to you for donations for this cause. The donations will be collected by the Typhoons Rugby Club which is a charity organisation registered with the Hong Kong Police and the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union. Deposits can be made directly to the club`s HSBC A/C 593-178809-001 or crossed cheques can be made to "Hong Kong Former Pupils Rugby Football Club" and sent to me at the following address:
6F Sea Horse Lane
Discovery Bay
Hong Kong

Receipts will be sent out for tax purposes please email me with the amount and your address.

For Typhoon players subs this year will be $1000, to be used primarily for Neil`s fund. A receipt for tax purposes will be issued for the entire amount of the payment. In addition, and to follow up on James Bell`s idea we will also work out the best system to be able to transfer air miles to an account for Liz. We are also having a Neil Bowler trophy made in his honour which will be presented to the player of the season this year and the years to come.
I would like to also ask you to forward this email to people that are not on the above list, with a copy to me.

Thanks & Regards

Martin Gray
Club Treasurer

....many in the press are comparing the Bali event to being an Australia 9/11, while the desrie to neatly label thing sin sond bites can be annoying, for rugby this certainly was true. The WTC was the working place for many Old Blues, NYAC, and other NYC area rugby clubs. Many firemen and rescue workers were ruggers. It seems the same enemy with the same weapons has once again hit ruggers.

Tell me, do you need help down in Texas, too? Since I figure I must refrain the girls from kicking the crap out of you up here, I should make some effort to stop the boys from doing the same down there? At least have them stop making fun of you...and by the description, they must know our females well!

I am appalled at your continually loathsome hypocrisy. Even though you have gentrified your wife by moving to the metropolis of Watauga from the hinterlands of the cornfield, I submit that your recent experiences as Head Coach of the Wayne State Beaver Trappers Women`s RFC gives you all too different of a first-hand knowledge of the low standards women are still capable of - at least when they are being true to their own desires and those of eight sets of fingers in the bar.

While it is arguable that such depraved acts result from the fact the Beaver Trapper`s scrum outweighs the Norway National team by, what, 20 or 30 pounds a man, such desperation does not exclude your players from judgement as women...ones willing not only to inhabit said Nordic- shitter, but most likely share it with two "funny-talking" men while the line starts at the pisser four feet away.

If you are interested in a way to increase membership for your organization, a friend of mine has recently started a website to help people meet people (in person) through various groups and organizations. While this site will be very useful in helping people to meet others with common interests, in order to make this site successful, it would help us to list groups on there already in existence. It would also be a great way for you to attract new members.

I have noticed that on the guestbook you can vote for the team with the biggest SHOCK of the world cup next year and now have seen that Norway is the leader at 31%. Either they have REALLY REALLY IMPROVED or you guys have no clue what happend over there in 1999 when they almost made me stay and play for the international side. they were also going to give me $10,000 cash, which in norway will last you about 9 days. (example $25 a game for bowling and pizza and 2 beers was $42 bucks and $30 for a shitter in your hotel room, instead of a public shower and shitter in the hallway. Never take your wife, becuase most (but not all) women will not shit in front of a guy in the shower or another taking a leak 4 feet away. FINAL SCORE STORM LAKE 5 NORWAY 0.

Cowtown 7`s was a good time, but in the five years we hosted it we had only one real profit for the club. Sevens tournaments will have no participants unless it`s a Western Qualifier, but when it`s a qualifier the West RFU takes all the money with their high fees.
