All roads leads to Loftus…

Ok not all roads but some ;-) During the week there was a lot of speculation of the options and permutations for this weekends games so in order to get the sharks into the playoff stage on the other side of the weekend. The fact remains that the best thing for the sharks is not to considerate of give any attention to all these things and focus only on the bulls and what must be done to win this “must win” game. I say must win but do acknowledge that all games should be must win games, but here the loser goes home.

But this thread is not about the Sharks team, and what they must do, but more about the roads the bunch of sharks supporters are taking to go and watch what is set out to be the game of the season so far. First of all I and many others wanna thank Ice for the arrangements she made to get a group of Sharksworld supporters to go and watch this game. Here follow the “program” set out for Saturday:

“We will be meeting at Laerskool Pretoria Oos on Saturday from about 14h00 (we need to get there early for parking !) (For those who will be joining us before the game!) – Its 206 Roper str – just off Lynwood rd and about 900 meters from Loftus.
Those of you who have a “skottelbraai” please bring those, chairs, your coolerbox and whatever else you normaly take to the rugby!
We will braai before the game! (perhaps afterwards as well! ;) Outcome depending! LOL”
Bring whatever you normally bring to braai – an easy one normally is a “boerie-roll” and you can pre-butter the rolls as well – less hassle and more space for a cold one in the coolerbox- but if you prefer something else – bring it on!”
The reason for me putting this out there is to invite all who are going but not joining this group in the stands to still come and show yourselves and even join in the pre-match activities and be part of this awesome event with a (more than) handful of Sharksworld bloggers .
I am packed and ready to go, comming all the way from Newcastle(350km), and can not wait.
I want to urge all of you going to the game to say I do in a comment on this thread, also from where and how far you traveling for this event just to build the enthusiasm(and a bit of jealousy) for this game even more.

  • nice idea to have a braai, but you’ll miss out on the Duikers game that kicks off at 14h00

  • First – Thanks Frans and all the others -it is only my pleasure and it was no hard work at all! I need to thank everyone for their prompt payment etc – ensuring that we actually did get tickets for this sold out occassion!!

    There are people travelling from afar – I actually forgot you are way back in NC!! So just makes me wonder why ol” Pokkel and Culling Song ignored my invite! :twisted:

    @robdylan (Comment 1) : Robbo – under any orther circumstances…but not THIS one! I want to soak up the commeraderie of great supporters we have on this site, so enjoying a bit of a social before the game is high on the agenda! ;-)

  • @Ice (Comment 4) : I get what you’re saying.

    But any one of you who passes up the opportunity to watch the Duikers play better not come afterwards and complain about the SHarks not having any up-and-coming talent :)

  • Laerskool Pretoria Oos is on the corner of Roper St and Lynnwood Road, opposite the main entrance to the University of Pretoria. The entrance is in Roper Street, directly before a set of robots, and next to the entrance of Pretoria Boys High School, which is next door.
    My only concern for you is that by 2pm the carpark there will be full already. This is a sell-out game and the streets around Loftus, and places which offer parking, tend to fill up extremely quickly from 9am, with people taking cars in early and leaving them there for later use.
    I would love to join you all, and will do my best to pop by, but I have been “hijacked” (in the nicest sense of the word) by the Sharks for the weekend! Am covering the Flasher Girls at Oxfords and the team dinner after the game for the website/magazine. I will have a photographer on hand and will send in some pics, I promise.
    And I will give our boys BIG LOVE from Sharksworld!

  • @franshark (Comment 13) : Hey – if people can get there earlier – it will be great – perhaps they can pay for parking for 2 or 3 cars and we’ll refund. Who ever gets parking just know you are the party spot! the others can bring their stuff to the “party”!

  • Frans – I missed the last part- I will be travelling from West Gauteng – die Wilde Krugersdorp to be specific – so not far at all – but our B&B we booked are also very close to Loftus!! So even after our win, if it takes me 2 hours instead of 5 minutes to get “home” – I’ll be one happy chick!! :grin:

  • @Ice (Comment 16) : I’m only driving back to vbp after the game, so in no hurry, ill try and be early but the more we are early the better, maybe we can’t keep place for someone else, this does not happen every day that we can get together, guys should sacrifice a few hours :)
