Sunday, April 27th 2014

Three weeks of the regular premiership remain with Week 36 to come at Anfield where Liverpool is at home to Chelsea this Sunday, April Unfortunately the kick-off is at 6:05 a.m. . The scheduled game for 8:10 kick-off is Crystal Palace vs Manchester City. Its importance depends on the result in Liverpool.

Sunday games May 4 start at 0530 (Arsenal v. West Brom) and 0700 (Chelsea v. Norwich) The final games of the season all start at the same time 0700.

The combination of these early kick-off times and flagging support have persuaded the Soccer Committee, with reluctance and regret, to cancel Soccer Sundays until further notice: There will be no transmissions April 27, May 4 nor May 11.

We are reassessing our interest in the World Cup of Football and in future seasons of Soccer Sundays revolving around, mostly, the English Premier League. Presently we are not equipped to record for later transmission, and repeats, where available, are usually several hours after the original.

We will submit another report shortly after May 11.

Cheers

Allan

In Memory of JOHNJOHN MORRIS

The world has lost a legend…some would say a Roberts Creek icon.

Johnjohn (John) Morris passed away suddenly on April 2, 2014, while doing his winter thing in Thailand.

Born and raised in Leaside, Ontario, Johnjohn picked up his roots and moved West in the late 60s, settling on the Sunshine Coast in Roberts Creek, BC, where he has lived for nearly 40 years.

The community of Roberts Creek and his worldwide family will celebrate his life on Saturday May 17, 2014. Everyone is welcome to join us at 2pm at the Roberts Creek Legion to share stories and sing a song for JJ. This will be followed at 5pm by a procession to the beach and the spreading of ashes.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made through Roberts Creek Legion to the Johnjohn Morris Memorial Fund, in person or online at http://www.robertscreeklegion.ca/jjm-memorial

Approx. schedule:
2pm - gather at Roberts Creek Legion
3pm - 4:30 pm: Family eulogy, stories and music
5pm - Procession to RC pier for spreading of ashes
Afterwards: Return to Legion for more music, stories and honouring of our dear family member and friend.

CALL for PHOTOS: Please send scans or photos (jpg) to Kevin Cafferky at jamesbluesman@yahoo.ca (childhood, early days, up to present day). Telephone snapshots of photos are good if you don't have a scanner.

MUSICIANS: If you would like to play in honour of Johnjohn, please speak to Fraser Blackley (604-741-3026) or John Van Arsdale (604-886-2461), either beforehand or on the day.
