Wednesday evenings at the Clubhouse + Indoor net dates (Seniors and Colts)

A reminder that Reed CC’s Howard Marshall Pavilion is open for business every Wednesday evening from 1930hrs onwards in the winter months. Come and have a chat, put the world to rights, watch soccer on the TV, throw a dart or two (or three!), play pool, cards or table skittles or simply enjoy the comfortable surroundings in the lounge bar. Bottled beers, lagers and ciders are on sale at “winter prices” (meaning cheaper than normal); plus soft drinks and nibbles such as crisps and peanuts, some, (I am reliably informed), at even further reduced prices. Every Wednesday evening through to April – when the cricket should begin outdoors with some friendlies (and beer prices go up)! Fixtures have been added to the website calendar. The dates of the Village Cup Rounds are also included although the draw is not expected to take place until mid-February. Click on “View All Events” on the right of this homepage on the RCC website then choose the months you want to look at. Friendlies will begin on 18th April, Reed host a Group Final of the Herts T20 on 2nd May, the 1st Round of the Village Cup is on 3rd May, then the Herts League commences on Saturday the 9th May. The league season will end on 5th September. Before all that, there are Indoor Nets for senior players, (i.e., 16 years and older), at Burloes Farm, Royston on every Sunday in March (1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th) plus two sessions at Melbourn Village College on Mondays 16th and 30th March - see the "Events" for times. A fee of £5 per person per session will be charged. For Under 12 and Non-County Under 15 Colts, there [...]

Please register your interest by contacting Sam Greaves on Mobile 07950 644861 or Tom Greaves on 07787 243915. =============================================================================== Nothing to do with the Quiz, but just a little brain-teaser for you to ponder.

That can be found on BBC iPlayer at 21 minutes and 48 seconds into the show. Make sure it is the Look East (WEST) programme. Where I live, I get Look East (EAST) and had to watch stock car racing from King’s Lynn instead! It indicates that this programme is available only until 1900hrs on Saturday the 14th September, so if you wanted to watch or download it, don’t delay doing so. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ UPDATED: 13/9/19 - LISTEN OUT FOR REED CAPTAIN, TOM GREAVES, BEING INTERVIEWED ON BBC THREE COUNTIES RADIO, 95.5FM, 103.8FM, DIGITAL, AT ABOUT 0730HRS THIS MORNING (FRIDAY THE 13TH). - I HAVE BEEN ASSURED BY THE ORGANISERS THAT THE BARS AND REFRESHMENT OUTLETS IN LORD’S WILL ACCEPT BOTH CASH AND CARD PAYMENTS ON SUNDAY. - THERE IS NO THOROUGHFARE BETWEEN THE MAIN GROUND AND THE NURSERY GROUND BECAUSE OF THE BUILDING WORKS.
