A City of Incredible Generosity When I moved to Victoria in 1971 there were many features of this beautiful place that impressed me.  Over time there have been many more and one of those is the outstanding generosity of its people.  This occurrence takes place especially for local charities...


A Matter of Conjecture

A Matter of Conjecture

Well, had all been according to Hoyle, perhaps today we would be rejoicing in men’s first round playoff victories over Capilanos and Meralomas!  Yesterday would have been the first of the playoff matches and admittedly, for that to have occurred in Premier play, end of league victories...

Horton on the rampage. Top billing this week belongs to Men’s Prems. Both men’s teams came away with W’s; as it should be in the case of a Local Derby, two close score lines in hard-fought matches. The day was brilliant and the crowd was the season’s biggest. Match PHOTOS - credit...

GOOD DAY FOR CW MEN, NOT SO GOOD FOR WOMEN

Chiz owned the air! CW Reserves began their match against Capilanos, allowing a rather “soft” try in the early moments. CW threatened but were repelled however it was Kanty who notched the opener, 7 – 5, CW. A mere five minutes later, Gerhardt was rewarded for what has become his...
