No, not 60 years of Cricket but 60 years since the BBCD Club started up on the 8th of July 1958. We have only played 33 years of Cricket.
Those who attended last year may remember that we had delicious suckling pig and we are going to repeat this for the 60 year anniversary match. This match is open to all members of the BBCD and Christ Church as well as their friends and families.
The match will start at 13.00 with half time around about 15.00 when we will be eating salmon & cucumber, egg & cress and BLT traditional British sandwiches. As usual this treat along with all the soft drinks is being sponsored by the BBCD and is free for everybody. I am sure that members of the Church will be bringing some delicious cakes and organising the Tea as they have done in the past. For those looking for something a bit stronger, Pimm´s and beer will be offered at a nominal price.
After the second innings has been played which we hope will finish about 17.30 then we are all returning to the grounds of Christ Church for a special 60th year anniversary Spannferkel (suckling pig). This is only about two minutes’ walk from the Cricket pitch and is once again being sponsored by the BBCD. All are invited to bring friends and family and it should be an absolute superb day.
There are still a few places open for players for the BBCD team so if anybody would like to come along and play they would be most welcome. No previous experience is necessary.
From the map below you can see that the game is being held in Nordpark on the Engländerwiese which for those who do not know it is very close to the Aqua Zoo. There is a car park at the Aqua Zoo and it is then only two minutes walk to the pitch.
