Preparations are well under way for the club's annual celebration of our fantastic Colts section
Colts Day will take place on Sunday 10th September with the Colts section taking over the club for the day, allowing us to arrange various events including the lads(& ladies) v dads( & mums) matches and the presentation of the end of season awards.
Whilst precise timings and schedule have still to be finalised, this will be confirmed in due course, below is an indicative schedule of events and timings for the day.
1030hrs – Reception Year Quick Cricket match V Parents
U7's v Parents Match
U8's v Parents on the Colts Square
U9's v Parents on the Main Square
1200hrs – Girls v Mums & Presecco Group match on the main square.
1315hrs - End of season awards - Every colt will receive a participation medal with additional awards being made for the leading bowler, batter, all rounder and most improved player in each league team age group followed by Club Awards.
1415hrs – U10,11's & 12's v Parents match on the main square.
1530hrs – U13 & 14's Lads v Dads match on main square.
BAR and BBQ from 1200hrs plus the usual array of cakes and hot drinks.
With regard to cakes, based on numbers attending in previous years, it would be too much to expect Soibhan and Julie to make sufficient cakes for the event and can I therfore request that some parents bring along a cake, home made or otherwise, on the day.
To ensure that the day runs smoothly it is most important that we have a good indication of how many will be attending and to that end can you please respond to John Campbell at Campbell.firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
• Confirm if you are attending with numbers so that we know how many we need to cater for.
• Parents please confirm if you intend to take part in the matches so we can decide on the best format for the games. Parents, I seem to recall that you lost at every age group last year so here's a chance for revenge!
• Advise if you intend bringing a cake along.
I hope that the majority of you will be able to attend the day(or at least some part of it) which has been a great success in previous years and what better way to see out the summer with a day of cricket, fun and relaxation in the magnificent surroundings of your Club in the company of our wonderful Colts section.
