Today is Rugby Sevens day. Big party on the wharf at all the bars. I stop at Chicago Bar for a few drinks before heading back down the wharf to Westpac Stadium. Very similar to hanging at the bat before a football game but all most everyone is dressed up in a costume.
On my way to the stadium the left brake on my wheelchair broke. I stop by the hostel to take a picture and text Dan to email Numotion, who I bought my chair from, since I don’t have internet access. I make it to Westpac Stadium just at the start of the first match between Canada and Scotland. Rugby Sevens is 7 players per side, 7 minutes per half with a 2 minute halftime. USA vs Argentina is the second match. USA was down 19-0 but came back and made a game of it losing 19-14.
Results from Rugby Sevens. Westpac Stadium is accessible but a a very long ramp to wheel up to the entrance level. The grade is not too bad just long. No elevator that I saw. They do have accessible bathrooms. After 5 hours of rugby and being in 3 hours of a light rain, I was under a little cover but still got wet, I head back to the hostel and work on writing and uploading photos, then hit happy hour.
