Yes, what every Kenyan loves a long weekend, especially falling on a Thursday, being end-month...enough reasons to imbibe,make merry,load a few more kilos around the waist and get broke (again) before the 15th.
For sports lovers the coming month promises to be quite a busy one
Rhino Charge-June 2nd-this is an off-the-road race which tests 4x4 vehicles to their limits helping raise funds for the Rhino Ark. A number of regulars will be around including Rob Collinge, Ian Duncan and a host of other enthusiasts.
Tusker Safari Sevens-June 8th-10th-this is one of the premier events in the sporting calendar, drawing a huge crowd of rugby enthusiasts(a number of people wanting to get drunk while shouting themselves hoarse...& lately beautiful ladies swanning it as they 'model' latest fashion trends).
Safaricom Lewa Marathon-June 23rd,another increasingly significant event which draws quite a number of corporates and individuals willing to have a run in the Northern Kenya bush.It enjoys the support of the CEO himself who even dons a track suit and gets into the thick of things. It also encourages Kenyans and international participants to donate towards conservation of the fragile Kenyan environment. No wonder Safaricom's colours are green !
In other circles, both local and international includes;
ongoing French Open-Roland Garros-one of the prestigious Tennis tourneys,
penultimate stages of the Spanish La Liga-Real challenge Barcelona with Sevilla looking to spoil the party,
there will also be respective African, European qualifiers to African Cup of Nations and European Cup respectively, starting from the second week-end of June,
NBA Plaf-offs;San Antonio Spurs wait for the winner between Detroit Pistons & Cleveland Cavaliers 2-2,
Formula 1: Montreal Grand Prix while in WRC the 7th round,Acropolis Rally-Greece starting today 31st of May to 3rd June 2007.
Have a superb weekend and please don't forget on Monday it's still another week , let's not party like it's 1999 (Prince & the Revolutions song)!
