We had a memorable Christmas party last Friday ! With over 30 Lions showing up we knew it was going to be fun !
First it was dinner time at Tamati our sponsor. The president himself arrived at 2000 pm and was very surprised that nobody was there and he was wondering whether he went to the wrong Tamati but soon one by one the players alone or with girlfriends and wives started to drop in ! Tamati is a good place for us as always the staff is there to help us out and they are very friendly. Beside the 30 pct discount we got a free beer and by now the pasta’s / pizza’s / soups are our favorites food before or after games !
The President in his speech explained how the Shanghai Lions have evolved into something special this year mainly due to senior teams performances and the addition of the youth teams as well the veteran winning the first ever veteran league in Shanghai !
The youth is what sets us apart from any other club in Shanghai and they will secure our future as a club ! There was a thank you to all the girlfriends and wives for letting us play our favorite sport every week and for their support of the club.
After dinner we were heading for our private comedy show / The stage was set as we had 4 comedians performing with Butch a comedian celebrity from the USA stealing the show, several Lions and in particular the Presisdent was targeted to make fun about. It really was a very fun show ! We booked it for 1 hour but lasted it much longer than that !
Afterward some Lions went to the Revolucion Bar to finish of a fun night. Others went home to prepare for our early morning game versus the Krauts in the SIFL !
Great evening which everybody Lion present enjoyed !
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you !
Enjoy your time off and make sure to come back slim and fit from your holidays !
