Thank you to our readers !
BUT THEN WE ARE NOT E-BAY !
Even in a quiet month, when we are preparing our team for the OAA Championships in Samoa, there are still people interested in the progress of and news from KAA ! Very encouraging ! And "Thanks" to our readers, regular and occasional !
Your November hits totalled 1451, i.e. almost one hit every 30 minutes ! To a tiny, remote, island web-site ! We hope to maintain a standard which will encourage more and more readers ! This will start with the OAA Grand Prix, the first two meetings of which will be in Suva, Fiji, on Sat. Dec. 9 and Monday, Dec. 11. The G.P. Group will then fly to Apia, Samoa, to join their national teams for the third G.P. competition and OAA Championships (Open and under-18). These will include the first OAA Cross-Country Championships early on Weds. Dec. 13, followed by a full programme on the next three days.
The "advance party" leaves Tarawa on Tuesday, Dec. 5 and will arrive in Suva that day. This group consists of the Grand Prix Squad Coach, Rianimarewe Betero, plus three I-Kiribati male athletes who will compete in the Grand Prix. (They will be joined by Harry Highland who is currently on a Scholarship at the Oceania-IAAF HPTC in New Zealand.) The rest of the party will leave Tarawa on Thursday, Dec. 7 and arrive in Samoa on Sat. Dec. 9. They shoulod all have time to settle before the fun begins !
