Our excellent club social Presidents day will take place on Sunday 28th August, with a Brexit or stay being the theme of the main match, so look out for a few surprises!
The day will start ay 9.30am with a terrier format mix of under 11s and 13s, 20 overs per side
The Presidents v Chairman’s t20 match will commence at approx. 1pm (currently 6-5 in the series to the President’s XI?) and the day will be rounded off with a mix of our under 15s and 16s taking on a parents XI in t20 match, at approx. 4.30pm, again to be captained by Jay Downton. This series is even closer at 2-2, so all to play for in this one. Will Jay end his losing streak? Will Brearley draw level with Bumper?
Other things to look forward to are a BBQ, Bouncy Castles (thanks to Paul Newman), an ice cream van (again thanks to Paul) and finally to round the day off in style a DJ from approx. 8pm. As usual the bar will be open from approx. midday.
If anyone wishes to take part in any of these matches or be able to help with scoring, umpiring or a stint on the BBQ then please contact Peter Reynolds on 07711-144497 or Biren Patel on 07947-755973.

Race Night – Saturday 16th July 2016
Posted Sun, 03 Jul 2016 17:10 by peter.j.reynolds. Permalink
The next social event is the race night on Saturday 16th July down the club from 8pm.
You can own a horse for £1 and the winning owner will receive a drinks voucher to the value of £5. If you wish to own a horse please contact Peter Reynolds
There will also be betting on the night with the first 6 races being £1 per ticket bet, except the last race where it will be £2 per ticket bet. This will be a tote style method of betting, so winnings will depend on how many or few have backed the winning horse.
The live race will also be a feature, so I am sure Charlie Puncher and Nakul Patel will be declaring themselves as runner and rider again to defend their crown from last year. If anyone wishes to declare themselves as a runner and a jockey for the live race then please let either Biren or myself know. We will require 8 runners in total. The criteria will be more strict this year in each rider/jockey must wear a helmet and carry a single stump.
The final race of the night will also attract a potential £100 prize, as there will be a tri-cast board, currently behind the bar, which is £1 per square. Tri cast squares are already shifting so please see Warren, Keith or Biren and if your square has the top 3 finishers in the correct order on the last race, then the winnings will be yours. Just put your £1 in the pot and write your name on the tri-cast board.
Please bring along family and friends as this was a very entertaining night last year.
