You do not want to miss the EBBTONES as they make their annual appearance "Bigger and Better Than Last Year!"

A shamble is a type of golf tournament that combines elements of a scramble with elements of regular stroke play. Like in a scramble, all members of a team tee off and the best ball of the four tee shots is selected. All players move their balls to the spot of the best ball. From this point, the hole is played out at stroke play, with all members of the team playing their own ball into the hole.

May 4th welcomed the arrival of a boat load of the TWITS players. A touring side was returning from a cruise line while another 10 arrived from the mainland to bolster the ranks. It made for some formidable numbers. Ebb Tide players arrived in numbers also, being a normal practice day.
Despite warnings of thunder storms, the weather held up with just some light showers. On this day, the TWITS seemed to hold onto the ball much better and showed more aggression going into contact. They scored 4 times to the Ebb Tide 1 demonstrating some thunderous runs. Ebb Tide try scored by Jim Jimmo during a moment of more direct go forward play.
Not the performance Ebb Tide hoped for the last regulation match. Despite that, good fun was had by all back at the JBAA clubhouse. Ebb Tide chose Casey, one of the backs, as their TWITS Man of the Match. Jim Zosiak was chosen by the TWITS as their Man of the Match. On the other hand, the coveted Red Jacket went to our illustrious JP Lussier who has played his last match with us (or has he?) as he will be moving to the Courtenay area this coming June. Ebb Tide wishes all the best to him and his family. A great servant to the club!
Fifteen road warriors, plus Bob Love as trainer, made the trip Sunday to Abbotsford. Spares were needed, but at least we started the game with a full squad! The Originals, as usual at home, fielded a strong team though didn’t have many on the bench.
Geoff left the game early with a torn calf, our first injury. Jamie Hannivan followed shortly after with a broken collar bone, then John Romphf with a bad back. Abby was kind enough to lend a quality player but with their short bench we ended up 14 on 14, and finally 13 on 13. The opposition back line made good use of the extra space, running in 8 tries to our 2. Their “new guy who has never played rugby before” turned out to be an ex-CFL player. Ouch.
Scorers for Ebb Tide were Cobra and Deryl Townsend (our new prop from Fort Mac). Our red jacket went to Tim Walshaw for a great deal of high performance tackling out on the wing. The Originals selected either Deryl Townsend or Jay Jimmo as man of the match, some confusion there as they seemed surprised to find out that we had two “big bald props”.
