Dear Jack & Jessie, arrived safely & travelled to the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Played Virginia University today & lost 13-9 but the score was 9 all at full time. We had to play an extra 10 minutes - which they scored 4 goals. Weather quite hot & food good. Having a great time. Norman
