The big day - 1000 games!

Today was a big, big day for Blue Dragon...

Our soccer team, Blue Dragon United, has now played its 1000th game!

We organised a tournament through the morning, and although it was very hot the kids had a fantastic time. We were joined by teams from the Hanoi Youth Football League, which has been great to us over the last couple of years so we invited them to join in and make our big day even more exciting.


Staff and kids alike joined in...



We had a warm up...


... but most kids were warm enough and were looking for some shade...


Everyone had a great time...






... and the U13s finished with a penalty shoot out:



(I promise to set up a Flickr account some time this coming week to make it easier to see photos on my blog).

... and here's the radio interview from Thursday, in which Blue Dragon's Outreach Worker Vi and I were interviewed by Howard Sattler on 6PR.

It really was a great morning. More pics to follow soon.
