NHA TRANG (VNS)  — On Sunday March 16, possibly one of the most ambitious and hilarious afternoons ever organised in Nha Trang will take place. Inspired by the recent Winter Olympics in Russia, Australian expat Jeremy Sait is running an afternoon of curling!

Curling is a sport where large, specially constructed stones are slid over an ice surface, the winner being the stone that finishes closest to the target, a little like "lawn bowls on ice".

A specially constructed rink using large blocks of ice will be built under the guidance of volunteer engineers and curling players to ensure it is as realistic as possible.

The focus is on charity and having fun, with the Khanh Vinh Orphanage being the beneficiary of all funds raised. They will also supply kids to be the flag bearers for teams representing Viet Nam, Russia, Australia, England and Wales, Sweden and Combined Celts (Scottish and Irish).

Practice starts at 4pm with a "round-robin" competition beginning around 5pm. Refreshments will be available.

Contact Jeremy Sait at 0944 976 118 for any further details. — VNS
