Lacrosse Norwegian National Championships

During the last week of June, the Norwegian national lacrosse championships were held in Oslo. Joe has been down and out due to his hand injury all spring. However, Tim and Rich braved teh 9 hour drive and participated in several games over two days, playing teams from other larger Norwegian cities. (Bergen, Kristiansund, Oslo, etc) Tim and Rich stayed at a hostel near the playing field and were able to take advantage of the long days of summer to see a lot of the sights nearby. These are some of those pictures. I am still awaiting the pictures of them actually PLAYING...
They came in last place, but felt that they represented Stavanger very well considering they had both the youngest player out there (Tim) and the oldest (our goalie, Patrick, who is 60). The other teams were mainly made up of university-aged men. The Stavanger Storm weren't victorious, but they did make a good showing!
