And my daughter Lynn Karijn is flying over to Canada tomorrow (June 27) to participate in the famous Canada Cup Softball with the National Dutch team.

I'm asking you to keep your fingers crossed that she will stay in one piece this time. Last time she played the Canada Cup, she got a split open finger in the first game and had to sit out the entire tournament.

She has to stay in one piece, because she has to play the European Cup in Italy at the end of July and then at the end of August she's off to China for the World Championship.

It will be her last World Championship, because she can't go on on playing on this high level, due to the very bad knee injury she has had some years ago in Praque. Her body is telling her it's enough after this year. But it will not be the end of softball for her, as she already started coaching a team. If all goes well she will have 3 World Championships to her name during her softball career.

And if Sharon is reading this: she will be playing in Softball City Surrey, close to your place Vancouver.

For those who are interested, here's a link to the Canada Cup website http://www.canadacup.com/index.asp

Never mind proud Moms (LOL)

Titia - sending you an email.  I moved and am now very close to Surrey actually, and would love to spoil here when she is here     What great pictures!  Check your email.  I definitely WILL go and try to watch.  What a fabulous opportunity for her to travel and do what she loves, lucky girl!

No doubt about it if she is playing against Surrey - she is going to win for sure.     Wishing her luck.

Thanks all for your support.
Participation is the main thing, I don't expect them to win, because there are some great teams playing.
All Dutch players have full jobs and play softball in their own free time. They don't get payed for playing in the National Team.

Sharon, Sandra (Lynn's partner) will tell Lynn that she should look into her email. How on earth did you find her email address

They start July 1st. I'm going to follow it on the Canadian website and the Dutch 'hometown' newspaper reports. I'll keep you posted.
