    Great to see them being rewarded for their hard work!!! They deserved it and its great to see them celebrating but I have mixed emotions when I look at the pictures.

    Its not a good idea to let anyone sit on the door opening and wave at any speed especially on our windy, bumpy roads. I know they are having fun, and I trust that the drivers were as careful as possible, but accidents happen. Can you imagine if one of them lost their balance, slipped or was hit by a branch from a roadside tree. What if someone else lost control and hit one of those cars.

    Just glad none of them was hurt. Next time, and there will be a next time because these girls are good, lets find a safer way!

      All of the U15 players and coaching staff were on the transport truck. The cars were that of family and friends.
