Come on TCC! Time to rally round and defend the Ashes (The Buxey Ashes of course....). One of the defining events in the TCC calendar is the now traditional cricket match held on the Buxey Sands on the Sunday morning (weather permitting) against our old friends (and friendly rivals) of the Maldon Little Ships Club. The more the merrier for this highlight of the Blackwater sailing season, as we shoo the seals off the pitch and take part in a very special sporting event at low tide as the Buxey Sands are exposed for enough time for a limited over (and limited talent) cricket game. Obviously crew members who can actually play cricket are particularly welcome, but anyone who can run, bowl, shout, yell, bat or score will be included. or just to come and watch and cheer on our galliant team members!

Just post a reply on the website or let me or Mandy know which boat is coming, needs a berth in B'sea and how many people are likely to be playing.
The plan is to have a joint pontoon party with MLSC on Saturday evening (everyone to contribute some drinks and food) after which everyone can make there own arrangements for dinner (I will check how late the B'sea Water Taxi is running) but it will be a fairly early start in the morning....

.....and TCC Team Captain... until I lose the Ashes...

It seems those pesky Russians have conspired to nobble two of our crew by holding the World Cup final on the same weekend as the Buxey Ashes! How did the MLSC manage to arrange that?

So we'll be down to three/four which will include our Will (who played last year) + Jess (possible)
