National Sporting Weekend – We Salute You!!

Gentlemen of Area 14,

Over the past few years we have had the ignomy of coming 2nd in the most prestigious of Tabling Events, National Sporting Weekend. Three Area Chairman had gallantly led our Area to Colchester, Lancaster and Leeds only to stumble at the final hurdle.

On the evening of Saturday 8th September at 10:41 p.m. at NSW Headquarters Birmingham, National President, Jason ‘JT’ Thompson, the representative of the National RTBI, and the NSW2012 Chairman Doenitz, the designated head of the NSW committee, signed the act of unconditional Victory of all NSW land, sea, and air forces in RTBI to Area 14!

NSW Winners!!!

Today, perhaps, we shall think mostly of ourselves, pay a particular tribute to our Area 14 NSW comrades, whose prowess in the sports field has been one of the grand contributions to the general victory.

Not only did Area 14 win the Athletics, Football, Cross Country and Swimming, it also reached the final stages of the Wheelchair Basketball, Badminton, Table Tennis, Golf and Pool with valuable points also coming from all other events.

Now, finally almost the whole world was combined against the evil-doers, who are now prostrate before us. Our gratitude to our splendid sportsman of Area 14 goes forth from all our hearts in this Island and throughout the British Empire.

Particular thanks must go to Scott Bower for organizing the Area 14 tops, John Manley for organizing the Marchesi House tour on the Friday and lastly but by no means least our beloved Area Sports Officer,Dr Adam ‘Lord Coe/Big Chief’ Connor for putting together a winning team.

We may allow ourselves a brief period of rejoicing; but let us not forget for a moment the toil and efforts that lie ahead. NSW 2013, with all her treachery and greed, remains unsubdued. The injury she has inflicted on Area 14, and her detestable cruelties, call for justice and retribution. We must now devote all our strength and resources to the completion of our task, both at table and area. Advance, Area 14! Long live the cause of tabling! God save the Queen!

Finally however, in the days, or weeks or months to come, when the dark clouds of Ilfacombe rise up again in the late Summer of 2013, with the other 52 areas wanting our crown, remember this, take strength and cry out ..

Area 14, we shall go on to the end. We shall fight in them on beach volleyball ground, we shall fight on Crazy Golf pitch and putts and, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the squash, we shall defend our area, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the 5 a side football pitch, we shall fight on the tug of war areas, we shall fight on the cricket ground and in the cross country, we shall fight in the darts; we shall never surrender!!.
