Celebrate those personal performances with your club mates. The bar will be open all evening for a good knees up. Think of all those match-changing moments that you should have bought a jug for - but did not / forgot to / hadn't any money / don't believe in it / left before getting collared / too young to buy alcohol, (delete as appropriate). Tons, fifties, 5-fors, multi-catches, stumpings or run-outs in an innings, man-of-the-match awards. Everyone will be welcome and the season hasn't even ended yet!
The 2018 President's Day will be on Sunday 12th August. Teams will play short-side matches throughout the day with a Final to decide the Winners. All Club players will be welcome to participate. Gather at 1100hrs. Play commences at 1200hrs.
Friday 3rd August. 7:00 p.m. for a prompt 8:00 p.m. start. And your starter for 10. Q: How many Quizzes is Reed CC holding in 2018? A: Two. Yes, two. The first was in June with veteran Quizmaster Matt Bowles asking the questions. Now, a new look and a new variety of teasers with Sam Greaves taking the chair. Will last time’s winning team, “Not All Legless”, be going for the double? Not far behind, Super Best Friends came second equal with We don’t know - (yes, we do know; the team’s name was We Don’t Know)! Book early - see phone numbers for Sam and Tom.
Our accommodating Chairman, Stuart Smith, has thoughtfully brought forward the start time to 1100hrs so that players, families, friends and supporters would be able to watch the Men's Tennis Final at Wimbledon on TV during the afternoon, and incidentally the Final of the (men's???) Soccer World Cup too!
Remember to make a note that our Musical Evening will be held in the Howard Marshall Pavilion at Reed Cricket Club on Saturday 21st July.

As we approach the beginning of another cricket season, a date for you to note is Sunday 6th May. That is when Reed Cricket Club officially names its Clubhouse the Howard Marshall Pavilion. During the afternoon, a Reed XI will play a match versus a Howard Marshall XI starting at 1400hrs followed by a short naming ceremony at approximately 1830hrs. There will be a Hog Roast afterwards.

Neville Bird at number 5 scored 12 followed by useful contributions of 26 by Steve Dunn and 24 by Clive Collins. Number 8 was Peter Lawrence who was out for 4 then Howard Marshall hit 3 boundaries in his 19. [...]
