At long last! A Kiwi on the leaderboard!
Message ID:
It would be nice to see New Zealand finally represented on Sec's
PerlGolf world map at

Baiting Kiwis being a traditional Australian sport, I could
not help but notice we finally have a bona fide Kiwi* on the
leaderboard, Jasvir Nagra.

Jas has endured a gut-wrenching weekend; first his beloved
All Blacks lose the Bledisloe Cup:
then salt is rubbed into the wounds in the Commonwealth Games
gold medal matches in Hockey and Netball.

Alas, I am unable to compete this month, but come on Jas,
you can do it! He is only 15 strokes ahead. And he is
threatening people with flaming ostriches. Next he may
be firing off flaming Kiwis (the bird, that is).
Maybe you can do a Haka+ at him or something. ;)
