Congleton rugby team help set 24hour match Guiness record

first_img“If you have never been through an endurance event like this it is difficult to imagine the emotional and mental challenge that it presents. Physical pain, exhaustion, cold following torrential rain, and injury has to take a back seat to make it happen. Running for 24 hours is exhausting, but add to this the impact and physicality of a normal rugby match and you have some idea of the scale of the achievement” said Richard Burkard, the team manager.All 24 hours of the match were diligently filmed with 2 cameras; players pitch activity was recorded in detailed log books by a team of stewards; and members of the Congleton Cycling Club acted as independent timekeepers to ensure the result was recognised by Guinness World Record officials. A team of physios from Congleton-based Norris Associates, CTC and others also played a vital role; ensuring our injured players were able to return to the fray.Nigel Brierley, one of the players said of the event “You have to stay focused on the goal. You have to put the hurt and the tiredness in a box and keep it stored until after the match is over. And then when the final buzzer goes all that stored pain and exhaustion comes out at once. You are flooded with emotion and relief. Being part of this enormous achievement is overwhelming and awesome”. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Those who took partWhilst rugby fans may be mourning the early exit of the English rugby team from the World Cup there are celebrations afoot in a number of amateur Rugby clubs as 44 players have officially broken the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous rugby match.The 44 players have kicked, tackled, rucked and mauled their way into the Guinness Book of World Records clocking up an impressive 24 hours 30 minutes and 6 seconds from 5pm on Friday 22nd July to 5.30pm on Saturday 23rd July 2011.The match at Congleton Park broke the existing Guinness World Record of 24 hours, five minutes and 12 seconds by 24 minutes and 54 seconds.Andy Jones, the organizer, who came up with the idea last year said “There are world records and there are world records. Some are silly while others are serious challenges. I think this one was off the scale in terms of being bonkers. All the players who took part are heroes. And we all played really competitively. It was incredible to see someone who had been playing for 18 hours sprint through for a try.”While Congleton RUFC contributed most of the participants, players also came from clubs across the Midlands and North West including Crewe and Nantwich, Old Suttonians, Loughborough University and Grange School.Players were divided into two teams: Congleton Bears and Mali Lions and all 24 hours were hotly contended with only 40 points in it up until 21 hours, both sides playing each hour as if it were the 1st game. Eventually the Mali Lions pulled away and ended up winning 889 to 715 – a score line which reflects the pace of the game.center_img Around 3000 people will have witnessed the event; around 1600 points scored; 150 people directly involved in pulling it off; New World Record – 24 hours 30 mins 6secs.Congleton RUFC will be officially awarded the World Record Certificate on 12th November 2011 and the achievement will be visible at guinnessworldrecords.com from this date.last_img read more

New Japanese Super Rugby team confirmed as being called The Sunwolves

first_imgMonday Oct 5, 2015 New Japanese Super Rugby team confirmed as being called The Sunwolves Japan’s new Super Rugby team has officially been revealed, with the team being called the Sunwolves. They will play their historic first game against the Lions on February 27th in Tokyo. The name represents a pack hunting mentality.Today’s announcement by Yoshitaka Tashiro, Representative Director of the Japan Super Rugby Association (JRSA), is the product of an initiative that saw the JRSA engage fans from all over the world to help devise an identity for its new team.The name is a hybrid comprising the blazing icon of the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’ and a wolf which represents a pack hunting mentality and a dedicated team ethos of protecting one another.The striking logo depicts the breaking of a new dawn for Japanese rugby and a fearsome representation of the team’s desired playing style as they seek to utilise speed, unity and a fearless spirit to face their challenges.SANZAR Interim CEO, Brendan Morris, welcomed the Sunwolves to Super Rugby.“It gives us great pleasure to welcome the Sunwolves to Super Rugby as they prepare to join our expanded competition alongside the Kings from South Africa and an Argentinean team that will be revealed shortly.“It’s an exciting time for the sport and also for fans throughout Japan who can start getting behind the brand, identity and ethos of their Super Rugby team. The JRSA did a tremendous job engaging the fans and we look forward to watching the nation get behind this team as it continues to take shape in the coming months.”The Sunwolves open their inaugural Super Rugby campaign with a clash against the Lions in Tokyo and play their first four matches at home, (including two in Singapore), which was a schedule designed to drive momentum and local support for the team in its all-important formative stages.Fans are encouraged to visit the teaser site and social media channels which have been launched to a slogan of #BreakTheLine which will be the team’s ethos as it rises to the challenge on the world stage.Follow the Sunwolves:Social Media: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram Teaser Site: http://super-japanrugby.com/ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Councilman Gordo Says Dispensary Operator May Have Crossed the Line, Asks City Prosecutor to Investigate

first_img Shaun Szameit, operator of the Golden State Collective dispensary, left, and Pasadena City Councilmember Victor Gordo, right.City Councilmember Victor Gordo has asked the Pasadena City Prosecutor to review a series of emails from a marijuana dispensary operator whom the Councilmember said he believes sought his help on enforcement matters “in a way that made me very, very uncomfortable.”In a statement, Gordo said the emails from Shaun Szameit, operator of the Golden State Collective, appeared to ask the Councilmember to intervene with city officials who had shut down the operator’s “illegal” business after issuing 21 zoning violations, assessing $25,800 in fines, filing criminal charges and fighting a civil suit the operator brought to overturn Measure CC.In the statement, Gordo said “it appeared to me that Shaun Szameit was offering something of value in exchange for assisting him.”Szameit responded Thursday in a statement to Pasadena Now.“Any lies spread by Councilman Gordo are actionable and should not be reprinted without proof,” Szameit said. “He is spreading false claims using the cities dollars to wage an offensive attempt to discredit and attempt to remove himself from the facts surrounding the issues, another reason Councilman Gordo is not fit for office.”(The statement from Gordo received by Pasadena Now was not prepared or distributed through his City-funded District office, but from a private communications firm.)Szameit said he never intended to speak with Gordo about any pending litigation but merely hoped to discuss “how we might move forward towards common sense policies that work for everyone.”“I wanted him to see my business and reach his own informed conclusions, which he refused to do,” Szameit said.But Gordo said he “believed Mr. Szameit was asking me to do something that I will not do.”“The public has a right to know and see for themselves precisely what Mr. Szameit was saying in these communications, which I believed to be questionable, at best,” he said. “Therefore, I am releasing the emails and am asking city authorities to determine if, in fact, my gut instinct was correct. I have refused to meet with Mr. Szameit and will continue do so.”Read the emails for yourself, by clicking hereIn particular, the Councilman singled out an email Szameit sent on January 28, a month after police raided and closed down his store on North Mentor Avenue. Szameit and his employees were charged with 18 criminal counts of unpermitted sales, illegal possession of marijuana and operating a public nuisance.According to Gordo, the email says: “Please as my council member speak with me and help me resolve my issues. Please give me a chance to clear my name. I am not asking you to discuss pending litigation, I am asking for your help. I will help anyone in this city and I want to build your supporters. I am not saying you need it however I believe we could do great things in district 5. I want to build the community, these are not just words I mean it. I will prove it with action.”Just hours before Szameit sent the email to the Councilman, Gordo said, some District 5 residents received an “anonymous” email containing a petition seeking to recall Councilman Victor Gordo and even offering lawn signs.Gordo said days after those phone calls, signature-gatherers began circulating petitions in District 5 neighborhoods, and an attorney associated with Szameit filed paperwork for a recall petition to remove the Councilman. Wording on the paperwork mirrored that used in emails sent January 28 to District 5 constituents.Szameit has since emerged as a spokesman for what the operator claims is a broad-based effort, which Gordo called “a farce.”“’I’m one of many parties who support the recall of Councilman Gordo,” Szameit said Thursday, “and am proud to be part of an effort to validly use the democratic process to seek his recall, given Gordo’s out-of-touch policies and other flaws as a councilman.”Following is a chronology of key emails that Gordo said he has  turned over to City Attorney-Prosecutor Michelle Bagneris:• March 18, 2018. Gordo leads Council efforts to draft language for Measure CC, a ballot initiative to repeal the city’s ban on cannabis businesses. He insists on language the disqualifies illegal pot shop operators, such as Szameit, from receiving new cannabis business licenses if the measure passes – language the Council approves. Szameit supports the ordinance but publicly calls for his operation to be grandfathered in. Szameit reportedly emails Gordo: “I am requesting a conversation with you. I own property in your district and will be a part of many developments over the years in Pasadena and even larger developments in many of the San Gabriel Valley cities.”• June 5, 2018. Pasadena voters vote 2-1 to pass Measure CC, which repeals the ban on marijuana operations and gives the City Council discretionary power to award legitimate cannabis business licenses.• Aug. 9, 2018. Szameit reportedly emails asking for “20 minutes of your time to explain my side ….”• Oct. 17, 2018. Szameit reportedly approaches Gordo at a District 5 community meeting to ask for a private meeting. Gordo said he tentatively agrees but, upon learning of Szameit’s record of zoning violations and litigation, later poses as a condition that the operator not discuss the cannabis ordinance or his lawsuit against the City.• Dec. 12, 2018. Szameit allegedly texts during the police raid of Golden State: “…I expect as my councilman for you to give me a conversation. Why can all your colleagues and you cannot…?”• Dec. 17, 2018. As the Council prepares to discuss his lawsuit in closed session, Szameit reportedly emails: “Do you have the ability to meet with me today to discuss before going to closed session? I will go anywhere. I feel there is more information that could help in the decision making and bring light to certain aspects.”(Gordo – who missed the closed-session discussion and Council meeting because of a family emergency – said that email “crossed a line … it was a highly inappropriate effort to influence confidential Council discussions.”)“From that point on, I decided not to meet with Mr. Szameit. It was obvious he could not be trusted to avoid the matters I would not discuss,” Gordo said in Thursday’s statement.• Jan. 15, 2019. Szameit reportedly emails: “I urge you to be compelled to put aside 15 minutes to have a cup of coffee and discuss the future direction of the city of Pasadena. This is going too far and there is absolutely no excuse to completely ignore a request from your constituent to meet for years. This is unprofessional and condescending…”• Jan. 28, 2019. A recall of Councilman Gordo (which Szameit now takes credit for) is initiated. District 5 residents are said to have received anonymous emails with a petition to remove Gordo.• Jan. 28, 2019. Szameit reportedly emails just a few hours after recall emails are sent: “Please as my council member speak with me and help me resolve my issues… I am not asking you to discuss pending litigation, I am asking for your help. I will help anyone in this city and I want to build your supporters….” (In today’s statement, Gordo points out that at the time this was emailed, Szameit’s “issues” involved 18 criminal charges against him and his employees, 21 code violations, more than $25,000 in fines and litigation against the City.)• Feb. 1, 2019. Signature-gatherers go door-to-door in District 5 with copies of the recall petition. Gordo has said that one signature gatherer knocked on Gordo’s door but ran away when the Councilmember tried to take a photo of the petition. Among the reasons for the recall: Gordo’s position on cannabis regulation.• Feb. 8, 2019. Bradley Hertz, a San Francisco attorney who has worked with Szameit in the past, files official paperwork for the recall with the City Clerk’s office. Szameit emerges as recall spokesperson.In Thursday’s statement, Gordo made clear that Szameit, whom Gordo said recently moved into East Pasadena, is not a District 5 constituent, as the Szameit has claimed. The Councilmember also said that he does not recognize Szameit’s shop, which is located in District 5, as a legitimate business.

However, newly listed homes were only down by 0.8% year-over-year, an improvement from the November data when new listings were down 8.7% from one year earlier.On a regional basis, the Western and Northeastern larger markets recorded the greatest year-over-year gains in new listings hitting the market, up 30.8% and 15%, respectively, while the Midwest only managed a relatively anemic 0.2% increase and the South recorded a 4% decline. California’s Bay Area saw the greatest increase in new listings with a 123.8% annualized increase in San Jose and a 98.9% spike in San Francisco, while Nashville had the greatest decline for that period at 19.9%.Realtor.com also reported the median listing price grew 13.4% year-over-year to $340,000, slightly below its peak of $350,000. Regionally, the greatest annual gains were in the Northeast (12.2%), followed by the West (+10.4%), Midwest (+8.6%), and South (+6.7%). Texas’ capital city Austin had the greatest year-over-year median listing price increase at 20%, while Minneapolis was the only major metro going in the opposite direction with a 1.6% decline.Homes sold in 66 days on average last month, 13 days faster than in December 2019, while homes in the nation’s 50 largest metros sold in only 56 days on average on market.“The shortage of homes for sale has been an ongoing issue for the last couple of years, but in December the combination of the holiday inventory slowdown and the pandemic buying trend caused it to dip to its lowest level in history,” said Realtor.com Chief Economist Danielle Hale. “”Looking forward, we could see new lows in the next couple of months as buyers remain relatively active, but a surge of new COVID cases may slow the number of sellers entering the market.”Hale added that improvements in the supply of homes for sale were being forecasted in the second half of the year, although she admitted, that “Until then, finding a home will continue to be a top challenge for buyers across all price ranges.” About Author: Phil Hall Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Phil Hall is a former United Nations-based reporter for Fairchild Broadcast News, the author of nine books, the host of the award-winning SoundCloud podcast “The Online Movie Show,” co-host of the award-winning WAPJ-FM talk show “Nutmeg Chatter” and a writer with credits in The New York Times, New York Daily News, Hartford Courant, Wired, The Hill’s Congress Blog and Profit Confidential.
