Berwick 6s

Posted on Monday 17th August 2009 by Fraser Murray

The Berwick 6s 2009 will take place on Sunday 30th August 2009.  Accies has enjoyed great success at this event; we were champions in 2007 and finished as runners-up last year.

The day in Berwick is always thoroughly enjoyable, offering thrill-a-minute cricket, cheap drinks and a festival atmosphere worthy of the end of the season.  It is highly recommended to make the trip as a spectator to support the club.

Anyone interested in travelling down should contact Neil Dowers, who will attempt to coordinate transport. A responsible, over-23 volunteer to drive a minibus would also be much appreciated (you'll also need the minibus symbol on your license).

The customary end of season Dinner (expected timing 7.30pm) will be held in the Clubhouse at New Anniesland immediately after the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting (6.30pm start).

Members able to attend should contact Brian Dundas, Iain MacKay, Farhaj Siddiqui, Jim McLaren, or Colin Dawson as quickly as possible to secure a place at this prestigious event.

Tickets are £25 per head (under 21/Students - £20). Please note that part of the ticket price is a donation to club funds.

It is vital that numbers attending are known by Monday 7th September (9.00pm) so that Ken Barron can make the appropriate arrangements.  Please bring lots of spare cash for the excellent raffle that will be held during the course of the evening!

In view of the numerous last minute "call offs" last year, anyone booked for the Dinner as at 9.00pm on Monday 7 September will be charged the full price even if they do not appear. The Section still has to pay Ken Barron the numbers booked as at Monday night.
