Ahoy ye landlubbers!
Saturday 16th March sees the mighty Busan Transport from the Korean National League make the short journey to local rivals Gimhae for their first away trip of the season. After the success of last season’s ‘Beach’ theme for our opening away game in Mokpo, we shall keep the sea idea, and travel under the guise of Pirates, so dig out your old handkerchiefs to tie around your heads and sharpen your cutlasses (or in the absence of one, pick up a plastic sword from E-Mart) as we sail to plunder our enemies.
Like last year, we’ll travel by the BTC’s very own Light Rail Transit, but since this year is a weekend game, we are proposing a bit of siteseeing beforehand, as Gimhae has much to offer in terms of interesting historic tourist sites. So, for those of you who fancy in a little cultural sideline on the day, we will meet at Sasang station at 9am and head down in the group.
After we have satiated ourselves on the wonders of King Suro’s tomb, etc, we can dine at one of Gimhae’s many restaurants before heading down to the stadium for the big game.
For those of you still eager to continue the party afterwards, we will also be hitting an Indian restaurant in Sasang upon our return, before discussing our battle plans for the night! Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
