19820825_3rd Judo camp at Ghajn Tuffieha

    The Bezzina Brothers, Alex and Godfery, have just organized the 3rd Judo Camp for the members of the Judo Camp for the members of the Judo Association.
    This Judo Camp was also a record attendance.
    All participants were in camp by 8.30 p.m. and soon after they were taken for a night run and general physical fitness exercises in Ghajn Tuffieha.
    Proper training started on Saturday morning - after being woken up at 6.30 a.m. and a hearty English breakfast of bacon, eggs and tomatoes.
    All participants were taken over the assault course. After that the group was taken over by Alex and Godfery, Mario Giuliano, Joe Abela and Tony Tanti.
    Time was also allowed for swimming after training. At midday, Joe Abela - Sports Director changed to Chef and prepared a hearty meal of beef burgers as only he can prepare.
    Of course to feed so many mouths famished by now, required the assistance of everybody. This is where George Vella was most handy.
    In the afternoon Envic Galea gave a refereeing seminar during which he explained to all Club Representatives the new Judo regulations to be effective immediately.
    After the camp fire and dinner, the members were reluctant to go to sleep, so Alex and Godfery decided to give them a sample of "Sangieko"; they woke up everybody up at  3.00 a.m. and took them for a night run, after which everybody slept until 7.00 a.m.
    On Sunday after a good Judo session, Fr. Hilary celebrated Mass in the camp and soon after lunch was served.
    After lunch, groups were formed to clean the camp, then met for a final row call. Here everybody gave the Dragon call, equivalent to 3 cheers for Alex and Godfery for another well-organized Camp and went home to appreciate a good sleep on their beds, looking forward to another Judo camp.
    The Association wished to thank the Bezzina Brothers and all those who helped the make this camp a success.
