Twas the last game
Before Christmas
When all through the court
All Badabings were stirring
Especially the short. Our balls all hung
By the basket with care
In hopes
That Coach Edwige
should Soon be thereThe teams were sorted
All safe in their zone
dreams of shots forted,

glad I’am not at home, 

Sally black bibbed
And I in my kit,
We settled down
the court the games keep us fit.

When out on the court
There arose such a clatter
I sprang to my feet
To see what was the matter

Away to the door
I saw in a flash
we open the shutters
And threw up the sash

The bing on the breast
Of a  fallen Dania
Gave the game lustre
lets play more or hang ya,

When what

To my wandering eyes
Should appear
But Josephine Shooting
And eight BadaBingdeers
With a tall driver
So lively with Feddi
I knew in a moment
It must be Coach EddyMore rapid than eagles
His talk came
As he whistled
And shouted
And called
Each by nameNow Stretch
Now Rump
Now Thumper
Now Bee
On Lion
On Wasp
On Panther
And BambiTo the top
Of the court
To the top
Of the keyl
Now dash-away Dania
Dash-away ShirleySo up
To the housetop
The court
They flew
With a sleigh
Full of Balls
And coloured bibs tooAnd then
In a twinkling
I heard on the court
The prancing
And pawing
Of each we fought

As I drew in my head
And was turning around
Down the Key
Coach Ed
whistled that’s out of bounds

He was dressed
All in Red
From his head
To his foot
And his clothes
Were all tarnished
With ashes and soot

His eyes
How they twinkle
His dimples how merry
His cheeks
Were like roses
His nose like a cherry

He spoke not a word
But went straight
Up the court
And filled
All the baskets
Then turned
With a jerk

An layup with a finger
Along side his nose
Then giving a nod
Up the court
He rose

He sprang
up to the hoop
To his team
Gave a whistle
An away
They all flew
Up and down
Not to Miss’all

But I heard him exclaim
As he drove out of sight
Happy christmas to all
And to all a goodnight

T’was the last game before Christmas and we were all on the court.
The Smirnoff Black label team, Dania, Gilly Sally, Andreea versus the Blue Absolutes Louise, Sarita, Nancy and Laurie.
Edweze joined the Absolutes blues until Sarita arrived.
The aim of the game was to down a shot in one. Nancy was the first to down one adding a touch of tonic to her Absolute vodka. She lined up 3 in a row.
Andreea took a shot for the black Labels. Angreea’s bitters, putting the Smirnoff’s in the lead.
Barman Edweze ran out of whistle, good pass he shouted as Dania caught the ball adding a cherry to the score board. Come on you Absolute blues screamed Sarita we can do this,
Who’s your Manhattan? Lets add some fizz to this drink, we can add sparkle! Sarita’s cork was popped and she was Rum-ming up the court, she downed 4, one after another. Nancy passed to Laurie, Ginn’y intercepted and shot a black olive making a dirty Martini. The blues added a twist and Campari’ed together to score but Sally caught the rebound and whiskey’d the ball to her team mates. The blacks tipple’d the score board.  Louise took a glugg and bloody mary’ed the ball to the net. Cin cin ! The Blacks were not shaken or stirred as they downed their shots in one.
At 8pm the game ended with a toast and shot of brandy. Bottoms up!
So this is Christmas and a Happy New Year, lets hope it is a good one with plenty of Basketball cheer!
Our next match will be 3rd January 2018
C U all BADABINGS!

I’m a badabing get me out of here!
Camp Snake Rock was split into 2 teams.
Team Ant, Louise, Lisa, Sarita, Shirley and Gill in Blue and Team Dec, Rhonda, Tulay, Dania, Laurie and Josephine in Purple.
To win meals for camp, each team had to score a basket. The team with the most stars in their net wins the game.
We warmed up with shooting drills and stretches. The bush tucker trail began at 7.20pm. Lisa won the jump but it was only seconds before the ball change hands. Rhonda in Purple was the first to get a meal in the net. Gill in Blue followed suit. 1 meal each for Camp. As you know it is never straight forward, we were not alone on the court, when someone catches a ball they were immediately surrounded by Green Ants or Declan spiders. Sarita and Shirley teamed up as a powerful duo scoring meals for their team. Dania fought through the ant zone and secured another star. Out of the heat came Hercules (Tulay) fearless and on fire getting every star she aimed for. The Purple were now winning 13-11. After a water break we changed camps, those in Snake Rock were now up Croc Creek!
Rhonda voted herself off due to a old snake bite. Josephine stepped down to even up the teams. Lisa turned purple and scored for her team, we were now 4 on 4. The Blues got a second wind and chased the ball into their basket, with both teams starving the score was now neck and neck, 13 all, with only seconds to go the blue’s made the last basket, they will eat well tonight.
At 8.00pm Kiosk Keith blew the whistle………We are the BADABINGS get us out of here…..!     CUNext Week QT
