Happy New Year
On behalf of the Chairman and the various committees associated with Frocester Cricket Club we wish all our friends and supporters a peaceful, stress free, prosperous and happy new year.
Speaking of the new year please be aware that the club will be OPEN on New Year’s Eve. A low key celebration, with music from ‘DJ Doors’, bring whatever food you have left over and drink the old year away with good friends in a relaxed atmosphere.
Barbados 2019 – Barbados night at Pounds Close!
Saturday 20th January 2018 will be a Barbados night at ‘The New (rum) Shack’. Open to anyone who wants to come along and enjoy a evening with a Caribbean flavour.
A chance for those who have booked to go in 2019 to discuss and chat about the trip but also open to anyone who may not be going and just fancies a different evening out.
There will be Caribbean style drinks on offer, music and hopefully some Caribbean style food/nibbles available. Just the thing to banish those winter blues.
NB: There are now just under 60 people who have now booked to stay for 14 nights for the 2019 tour to Barbados.
The majority will be staying at Infinity on the Beach, St Lawrence Gap, this is the old Escape at the Gap for those that remember. A smaller group will be staying at the smaller budget hotel just over the road at Time Out, by Dover Cricket Ground.
We will be all be one group, just split over two hotels. Flying from Gatwick on Monday 25th February 2019. A great fun time awaits with 3 x cricket matches v local opposition, Sandy Lane Gold Cup (horse racing), the now infamous catamaran trip and renewing old friendships built up over the past 25 years of touring this magical island, maybe just maybe over a glass of beer. We are still waiting to see if our tour coincides with an England v Windies game as they are also touring the Caribbean the same time as us, copycats!
It’s never to late to join, subject to availability, especially any cricketers wishing to join in this very special and memorable tour. Speak to Eric Bird or Tony Bray for more details. Just remember that every week that goes by the cost may well rise so be quick.
Forthcoming events in brief:
- New years eve fun at the club. The New Shack will be open to celebrate Old Years Night/ New Years Eve or whatever you wish to call it!
- A Barbados night on Saturday 20th January 2018, an evening of Caribbean style drinks, music and hopefully some food? Open to everyone.
- Every Saturday afternoon the club is open for informal drinks, cheese and biscuits and rugby on the TV. Don’t forget the Six nations rugby internationals are coming up soon (February).
Looking even further ahead – Saturday 22nd September 2018 – A Grand Autumn Ball.
Conkers! I hear you shout but no it’s true. Start saving your pennies folks for what will be a must attend event.
Day of celebration for Brock Spyvee.
