    At least you are in Abu Dhabi and not Dubai. 🙂

    NYE cancelled?

    Sheikh Mohammed has ordered the cancellation of NYE celebrations.

    Last night, New Year’s Eve celebrations across Dubai were called off. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, ordered the cancellation of all forms of celebrations marking the New Year in Dubai emirate, as an act of solidarity with the Palestinian people.
    Time Out is contacting venues across Dubai to get the latest story. We will be posting up to the minute news in our Knowledge section so keep an eye what’s going on and let us know what you hear.

    As ever, if you have booked tickets, get in touch with the venue direct for more details on their final plans and possible refunds.

  • Not a great decision for a city, that wants to attract tourists, and whose very existence relies on people coming there!!

    Strange to see a place have a 15min time difference. I thought the smallest Jump was usually 30min.

    Four Saffas on Sanzar panel
    South Africa have four representatives on Sanzar’s inaugural nine-referee merit panel to take charge of next year’s Super 14 campaign.
    The elite panel includes South Africa’s four top officials – Marius Jonker, Craig Joubert, Jonathan Kaplan and Mark Lawrence.
    Sanzar took the ground-breaking step of creating an elite referees panel founded on merit ahead of nationality back in November.
    This means that SA refs will now be able to take charge of games involving their fellow countrymen against the Australasian sides. The decision was made to ensure the best games would be officiated by the best referees.
    Changes to the panel may be made during the season depending on the outcome of regular assessments by the selectors.
    Merit panel (Alphabetical order) – Stuart Dickinson (Australia), Matt Goddard (Australia), Marius Jonker (South Africa), Craig Joubert (South Africa), Jonathan Kaplan (South Africa), Bryce Lawrence (New Zealand), Mark Lawrence (South Africa), James Leckie (Australia), Steve Walsh (New Zealand).
    Shadow Panel (Alphabetical) – Paul Marks (Australia), Chris Pollock (New Zealand), Ian Smith (Australia).
    Reserve Bench (Alphabetical) – Phillip Bosch (South Africa), Keith Brown (New Zealand), Vinny Munro (New Zealand), Nathan Pearce (Australia).

  • Is Philip Bosch related to Andre!??!

  • One thing that is very strange to me though is that Willie Roos never made the merit panel….there must be more to this…SW journo’s…investigate…

  • Hello all the Tjarkie Manne.

    Rather late then never. Hope you all will have a blessed 2009. Myself will have a rather challenging one.

    Will nots up a half ton in two weeks time,

    Two of my chickens will leave the nest(one to UK and the other to Maties) and only me, the Mrs and Laatlammetjie or oorstoot3inbeseringstyd or last drop left. Maybe sell my house and get myself a 1 room flat. The laat lammetjie kiep anyway in my bed between me and the Mrs.

    2009 Wishes:
    Hope our cricket lot will klap the Aussies even futher at home and hope Herschell Gibbs will clubber them in the One Dayers after is Bergie frustrations,

    The Stormers to win the S14,

    Bokke to win the 3 Nations,

    Paarl Gimmies to make it a record 6 in a row at interschools.
