John Skitt Memorial Cricket Match - Sunday 15th July 2018

Details of the match are covered in the following letter to all members and friends from JJ.
Dear Member,
I am writing to inform you that on Sunday 15th July at The Bay we will be holding an event to commemorate and celebrate the life of, and the immense contribution made to our club by, John Skitt, to which all members and their families are extremely welcome.
We will begin with reception from 12 noon when the bar will be open for coffee and the usual selection of drinks.
At 1 pm there will be a cricket match between a Skitt Invitation XI and a Botany Bay Club XI. There will be tea between innings for players and spectators.
At the end of the cricket there will be a formal commemoration to John, following which you are invited to participate in traditional post-match socialising with a barbecue.
The Football World Cup Final will be shown in the pavilion and the timing and duration of the cricket will be planned to accommodate this.
Although we are keen that The Club XI will contain people that played cricket with John, I would very much like to hear from all who are interested in taking part in the day, whether to play, umpire, score, help with teas and the barbecue or to attend and help demonstrate our regard and appreciation for John’s committed involvement at Botany Bay.
In order to enable us to organise the cricket and cater appropriately for the day as a whole, please reply giving an indication of the level of involvement and contribution that you are able to make.
I very much look forward to hearing from you.
