Tamarindo Talk

November 20, 2009

The Guanacaste Unido soccer team, with its new and improved field in Santa Rosa, is anxious to start practice for the next season. They held a day of scrimmages and a meet and greet event last Sunday, Nov. 15, and two days of tryouts for kids between the ages of 6 and 14 from the communities of Santa Rosa, Villareal, Llanito, Tamarindo, Potrero, Huacas, Flamingo and Playa Grande. For a schedule, contact Dustin Short at 8387-9990.

The search continues for British journalist Michael Dixon, who was last seen Oct. 19 leaving Villas Macondo in Playa Tamarindo. He was wearing shorts, a T-shirt and was carrying a blue hotel towel. The 33-year-old journalist was traveling alone.

The family of Dixon has set up a fund to collect money that is being used for things like a private investigator, translator, search dogs, and additional help in the search. The Red Cross has also been involved in the search. To donate money, the following bank account can be used anywhere in the world:

 

Bank:               Barclays

Sort Code:       20-60-55

Account:           70814113

Name:              Missing Abroad

Iban:                 GB33 BARC 2060 5570 8141 13

Swiftbic:           BARCGB22

 

Please include “Find Michael Dixon” on the transfer / paying in reference.

On Wednesday, Nov. 25, CEPIA will hold a march and offer presentations from school children of the zone about the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. The event will be on the main road of Villareal from 8-11 a.m. To get involved, write to Sandrine Tcherniack at cepiadirector@racsa.co.cr, or call 8881-2134.
