March 2005 News

Reporting from Austrakia

Posted on Sunday 27th March 2005 by Colin Dawson

Hi everyone from Sydney, Australia. The big difficulty so far is that the sun has been particularly unobliging until yesterday and the first two matches were both washed out as no results.

Today's match against Paramatta however was played in 80F and we managed to lose all the wheels form the wagon at the same time losing to 257 for 7 and being 130 all out.

There are three matches next week between Tuesday and Thursday and another report will be posted then. Otherwise we have been doing plenty of touring round the Sydney area and the Blue Mountains were very spectacular. Going for a balmy curry tonight.

Se ya

So many things to do with so little time left! Junior subscriptions are due for renewal on 1st April for the year to 31st March 2006. As I leave for Australia this Friday (18th March) it will be impossible to get the notices out until my return in mid-April. Please give the requests your urgent attention if receiving by post. Members for whom I have e-mail addresses will have received them before I leave.

You will notice one small addition being a per capita levy of £10 per member - otherwise rates remain unchanged for yet another year. Member subscriptions all go into central Club funds so the Section receives no direct benefit from them; the notices explain in more detail.
