Most of you will be aware that the majority of the secretarial duties are performed by Maureen and she has suggested, nay demanded that I do something about recognising the fact that her 'boys' are here to retain the ASHES later this Summer. Yes it is C R I C K E T.
Fairly soon all 119 of you with email addresses will have the opportunity to win a prize which she will provide after the series is over!
She sincerely hopes there will be a decent entry
Part of the competition will feature a BIRD (or BOID) which is mostly seen on water and eats bread thrown by people on riverbanks !
This bird has a connection with a cricketing term indicating that a player has 'not bothered the scorer'
WAIT FOR THE EMAIL.
Right, in 5 days, just over 30 have looked and are anxiously awaiting for the round robin email to give the details. Also we welcome a new emailer, Arthur Walsh from Preston (715) giving a total of 120 altogether,
The message will be going out on Saturday,6th June (D DAY) and your entry is required before the 1st TEST beginning on 8th July. The post you will send your forecast to will be titled ASHES 2009.
