Hey guys – since this site is now the de facto spot for Sharks fans on the web (allow headroom here), we thought it would make sense to devote some screen inches to the all-important parties that are going to be happening before (and after) the game on Saturday!

We already know of lots of you guys who are fortunate enough to be going to the game. Use this thread as a place to announce your plans, let other posters know where you’re braaing and so-on and perhaps we can get a bit of community spirit going, by meeting up with people. We’d love to see the photo’s afterwards!

For those of you not making it to the game itself, perhaps you’re watching at a pub or bar (or perhaps you’d like to invite other posters over to your place to watch!). Feel free to post those details here as well.

Just a note, though: if you’re planning an event that will require people to PAY to attend, do not even think about posting it here, or I will send you a bill for the free advertising…

Update by KSA:

As some of you know Sharksworld has access to four season tickets at ABSA Stadium and as the owners of those tickets are not able to make the trip to Durban for the Match (something about jinxing the team), we have decided to give them to two very deserving Sharksworld ” BABES” (As Silver Fox calls them) :wink:

Milissa and Debs will both be attending the match courtesy of Sharksworld, but as you guys know Rob and I very seldom GIVE things away for free. So In exchange for these tickets the girls will be writing us an article after the event about there experience during the game. Milissa has promised to keep it small enough to post as a single article this year. Debs has promised the photo’s will be well worth waiting for.

A little birdy has also told me that another Sharksworld lady will be accompanying them to the match but I cannot confirm this. Maybe she can confirm it for us? :wink:

  • I’ll get the ball rolling.

    Our compound has a sportsbar called Rumours. We will be having the match shown on the big screen and the Bulls will unfortunately outnumber the enlightened ones considerably.

    Entrance and the match are free so they don’t have any money to pay us with.

  • I reckon that one of the conditions that the “babes” can get those tickets is that they should take a Sharksworld banner with them that they must conspire to get shown on TV. I would LIKE to see where they are sitting (if at all possible)

    I hope they are someone’s season tickets, coz if anyone is trying to scalp tickets they deserve to get their fingers burnt and NOT sell them at all.

    I don’t think so, but if some poephol stood in line just to buy extra tickets to sell, then they should have the misfortune of not even being able to sell them at face value IMO.

    Enough about that here though, I guess :) I was just interested.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 22) : you have seen what he wants to charge for them,right? You should have also got the email?

    The justification given is that other people are doing the same, but want more than he does.

  • @robdylan (Go Sharks!) (Comment 25) :

    Hadn’t seen the mail, but have now looked after you mentioned it.

    So he/she/it feels it is justified to charge more than double the face value.

    I think it sucks, and hope he loses on his “investment.”

    So if other people jump in the fire is he also going to do it but just into a smaller fire? :razz:

  • On the one hand you say he stood in a queue and others didn’t, but at the end of the day, touting is illegal, and there are no guarantees that the ticket isn’t a forgery. That’s the last thing you want after paying double!

    There are also people who get students to queue for them and pay like R100 or something so they are in it to make money which again is not kosher really.

  • Ndungane fails fitness test
    2008-10-20 14:29

    Akona Ndungane

    Pretoria – The Vodacom Blue Bulls’ Springbok wing Akona Ndungane failed his fitness test on Monday and will consequently not be eligible for Saturday’s Absa Currie Cup final against the Sharks in Durban.

    The team doctor Org Strauss confirmed that Ndungane is not yet 100 percent and has ruled him out of the final.

    “Akona started to run during the course of last week and he trained with the team on Monday morning, but his groin is not yet strong enough to play in a match,” said Strauss.

    “We don’t want to take any chances with his fitness, but I trust that he will be fully fit when we start with our off season training.

  • @Baldrick (Comment 29) :

    I once had a guy give me the ” if they had stood in the queue, they would have had tickets” argument. He was soon shut up by my comeback that maybe they WERE in the queue but some greedy bastard ahead of them bought 10 tickets instead of just the two he needed. So there were none left when they got to the front.

    Good to hear it is all sorted! Had me worried for a bit there.

    I can not wait to get back to Durbs! :-)

    I was at the nail salon today getting my nails done (white w/ black tips) for the trip and trying to explain to them exactly why I was getting those two colors and why I was flying all the way over to SA to see the game. After 3 hours I’m not sure they got it but my nails look awesome :lol:

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 38) :

    gmata..I tried the rugby is much better than football explanation but I sort of got a blank look. I think being around all the nail chemicals makes some of the ladies a bit wetbrained.

    Although..most people here thinking I’m pretty much insane for flying to SA for a long weekend twice in one year. So I’m getting rather use to the shocked look and the following “You’re kidding me?”.

    If they only understood and knew the sport and our Sharks, then they’d understand.
