Canada Day

O Canada! Our home & native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command. With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong & free! From far and wide, O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. God keep our land glorious & free! O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

On July 1, 2013 the Redcoats celebrated Canada Day with a bar-be-cue at the Universal Sports Bar & Restaurant adjacent to the Gozo Stadium.

A youth softball game and a co-ed softball game were part of the afternoon and evening activities. The fund raising event turned out to be a success with a very good turning which included friends who travelled from Mellieha to join in the celebrations.

What a way to celebrate Canada Day!! Our youths took a team photo prior to their pre-BBQ game with the Canadian flag in what was a gorgeous day.

In the first game our youths played 4 innings of good softball had a great time and worked up an appetite in the process.

After the youths’ game it was the turn of the senior players to flex their muscles. It was great fun for everyone especially with the appetising smell of BBQed meat in the air. Canada Day was celebrated in style in Gozo, the way it should be, with a game of softball among friends followed by a mouth watering BBQ.

Oh yes! For the main event, chicken kebabs, sausages, beef, pork… it was all delicious. Well done Charlie Farrugia and the Universal Restaurant. Massive thank you to all those who came for our fund raising Canada Day BBQ in show of support for the Ghajnsielem Redcoats. The event turned out to be a huge success. We hope to be able to do it again soon.
