Readers Letter: “Hello Friends 30 seconds of your time, It’s been a while. I’ve had a lot going on for 2016 and being in US. I had a lot to think about. Sorry to say that my family and I decided to leave Gozo and stay in New York.
We had an amazing time and have enjoyed our life in Gozo and there are a lot of people we will miss. Gozo Greyhounds was into helping out kids in sports & health.
We tried to form a running & cycling club for kids & grown-ups. I had an amazing time with the kids and was so impressed with their efforts; what a great time I had with them. We tried to give 100% with everything for the kids and grown-ups but with the grown-up it was not working out.
Yes, we had good results in 2016 with Malta Cycling Federation with the grown-ups but the Gozo Cyclists did not like the name of the club, the clothing I designed and they didn’t help out with the kids on the bike rides. I really wanted to form a mentoring relationship between the young cyclists and the older, more experienced riders.
The club went through a lot with the MAAA, Malta Sports and the triathlon federation to get official affiliation. What a hassle I went through and as of today, 6 years later, we still don’t have affiliation.
We tried to get funds from EU and filed applications with so much work involved and nothing worked. It is very discouraging so Gozo Greyhounds are closing and stopping what we have been doing for the last 6 years.
I would like to thank the Eco-Gozo and the Minister for Gozo for helping us with the clean-ups for 2016.
Please come and join us: Gozo Greyhounds Sports Club are inviting everyone who came to help out on the Gozo Rocks Clean & Green Hikes from all countries and kids with parents please, to “D’Bar Restaurant” for a pizza and drinks, on Wednesday the 28th at 5:00pm.
So please let us know if you will joining us by Friday the 23rd through the facebook page so we can make arrangements it cost you nothing. On behalf the Gozo Greyhounds & Gozo Rocks we thank you and God help you all.”
