Saipan Sportsfest

Saipan Sportsfest is the week between XTERRA and Tagaman. It's a great way to showcase our beautiful island to visitors. After living here for 17 years, we've heard from many off island guests that Saipan is a remarkable place, full of friendly faces, island hospitality and beautiful scenery all around.

Albert Anton is from Catalonia, Spain. In 2004, his friends, XTERRA pros David Henestrosa and Ingrid Sala stayed with us and told other Catalonians about our little island and the XTERRA/Tagaman triathlons. Albert competed in XTERRA last weekend and will race in this Saturday's Tagaman as well.
Bill Sakovich joined us for the night bike ride on Tuesday evening and he did great! No falls, Jeannie! Bill has been instrumental in organizing both events and continues to visit us from Hilo each year. We miss you guys!
Sam Gardner (2009 XTERRA Saipan Champion) and Susan Blackett are enjoying their stay in Saipan. Good luck to both of you this weekend!
Allan Collinson and Julia Lendvai from the Sunshine Coast, Australia are having the BEST HOLIDAY EVER! We look forward to their return visit next year with many more friends.

Wolf and Bobbi were the hares and they set a good trail - about 4 miles from Pau Pau Beach through the Rock Quarry, behind Marianas Country Club toward Suicide, down Kimikaze and ON HOME at the Grotto! Thank you for organizing the 6th Annual Xterraist hash!
On Sunday last week, the kids, Nate and Pros Mike Vine & Shonny Vanlandingham hung out at the BBQ at Obyan Beach.
It was a gorgeous day
Rich & Carolyn enjoyed themselves
Shelby was waiting for Renata to drop a few pieces of chicken or ribs.
Thanks, Jim for cooking the 20 lbs of chicken
