South Florida Jamaican Alumni announce the 8th Annual True Blue Event, March 16th-18th, 2012
The 8th Annual True Blue Weekend will take place March 16th-18th, 2012. The 3-day event is hosted by the St. Andrew Old Girls’ Association Florida Inc., the St. George’s College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. and the Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc.
The True Blue weekend is an expansion from the annual Ziadie Cup soccer match between the St. George’s College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. and the Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. Last year’s match drew over 1100 spectators and supporters.
“This True Blue Weekend offers Jamaican Alumni in South Florida an opportunity to rekindle relationships with their classmates and high school friends from Jamaica”, says Xavier Murphy, president of the JCOBAFL. “The friendly soccer match allows us to honor the memory of Coach Dennis Ziadie, who coached both boys’ schools to Manning Cup victories“. This year will mark the 26th anniversary of his death in an automobile accident in Mexico at the 1986 World Cup.
