Tain YMCA goes World Cup Crazy!
Amongst all the excitement surround the World Cup, the young people in Tain are embarking on a series of 'football madness' events around this year's FIFA 2010 football competition.
The young people of the Tain YMCA are preparing for a bumper few weeks of ‘football madness’ as they enjoy this years’ World Cup. Graham Nutt the Youth and Community worker said that the planning group which consists of young people and adult volunteers have put together an ambitious and exciting programme of competitions and events for the young people of Tain and surrounding villages.
It all kicked off this weekend with a World Cup Fancy Dress Disco on Friday (11 June) with DJ Ally Mac to celebrate the launch of this years’ World Cup competition. The next day saw a 5-a-side Dads and Lads Football Competition following by a prize-giving and BBQ event back at the Youth Cafe with former Scottish and Aberdeen player Brian Irvine presenting the trophies to the winning team.
Brian will then be talking about his life as a footballer and as a Christian, then of course the first England match against the USA shown on the Cafe’s big screen.
Over the month there will be a X-Box 360 FIFA comp, a table top football comp a Subbuteo evening and even a special Girls night in, overall there are 18 different events for all to enjoy.
Graham tells us: "There will be a World Cup Quiz night on Thursday 24 June and this quiz – along with many other events – is open to all ages. "We hope that the community come and enjoy there the events planned."
