Went to the Hilton Convention center a few weeks ago with some other teachers to see the Kuwait Nomads Rugby Club Fundraising Dinner/Event/Shindig. It had very little to do with Rugby, and seemed to be just an excuse to get all dressed up and go to a fancy dinner full of mostly Commonwealth teachers at English schools in the area.
The Nomads are a semi-pro Rugby team from Kuwait that holds matches with other teams from this region.
While the dinner was slightly expensive, a good time was had by all who attended. I also got to get out and meet some other teachers and people in the area. The invitations were all organized by a new teacher at our school from New Zealand named Scott Mogey.
