Willow Park Camp


The time had come to go to the riverside camp, Willow Park. I would have preferred Tortara Springs though. But any camp is exciting for me.

It was now the second day. We got given options, they were tennis, mini-golf or riding on the quad bikes. But I decided to play mini-golf with Waata. He was up for the challenge and said to me, “bring it on.”

It was hole fifteen, the final hole. We were tied up at 7 all. I swung the putter back and hit the ball up the the hill. Almost had a hole in one, but the ball just went right.  Waata missed his shot. Then I just tapped the ball into the hole. I am the winner.


Performance night was the best night at Willow Park. Every group had to perform for the judges. For our performance, we done the National Anthem and the Haka. But the funniest one was peanut butter jelly time done by Ahsin’s group. That was a cool night.


After camp, I thought to my-self. Even though we didn’t go to Tortara Springs,  I still had a good time.

Manly Beat Warriors In A Thriller Grand Final

THE VODAFONE WARRIORS
MANLY WARRINGTON SEA EAGLES
It all came down to this, the 2011 grand final where the Vodafone Warriors take on Manly Warrington Sea Eagles. I was anxious for the match to start. Then the hooter went. Kick off time.

          Big hits were the best things I saw in the match. Warriors Five-eight James Maloney done two hits and Warriors center  Krisnan Inu done 2 hits. In some hits, blood spilled from the faces and onto the field which needed stitches.

          Thirty minutes into the game and no one had scored, until Manly struck the line. Brett 'The Snake' Stewart had gone in for the opening try. Which made the score 4-2 after James Maloney's Penalty goal. But the score was in favor of Manly

           In the shadows of full time, it wasn't good. Manly's captain Jamie Lyon scored then got the conversion. That made the 26-16

           Even though Warriors lost, it was still a good to experience a grand final match. They didn't lose by much. Only by 10 points.
