IFCR is part of the Dream Cricket day at Bowral

At the request of the Movement Disorder Foundation the three Rotary Clubs in the NSW Southern Highlands (Berrima District, Bowral-Mittagong and Moss Vale) conducted a Dream Cricket Day on the Bradman Oval in Bowral (NSW) on Friday 29th October 2010.

Dream Cricket Day was designed for children with disabilities attending Primary Years 4 to 6, and provided an opportunity for these children to play modified cricket on the ground where the world's greatest cricketer, Sir Donald Bradman started his record breaking career.
Children from Primary schools as far afield as Wollongong to Queanbeyan, covering Rotary Districts 9710 and 9750 took part in this unique event.
The Bradman Foundation generously provided the Oval at no cost, while Bradman Volunteer guides conducted tours of the Bradman Museum during the day. The tours included a sneak preview of The (new) International Cricket Hall of Fame recently opened to the public on Monday 5th October.

The Highlands Rotary Clubs provided catering and other services during the day while a number of local firms sponsored food and drinks. Cricket Australia generously donated cricket kits to all the players.
In response to a request from the organising Committee, the IFCR was pleased to sponsor 100 commemorative medals which were presented to the players, umpires, officials and volunteer guides. The medals show the Bradman Oval logo on one side and the Rotary emblem other.
Dream Cricket Day was an outstanding success and laid the foundation for an extension of the day into other Rotary Districts in the future.
Given ‘The Don’s’ very long membership of Rotary he would have been delighted to see the great enthusiasm displayed by the children and their carers/teachers and parents having fun on the Oval that bears his name.
As a post script, the Assistant Curator of the Bradman Museum, Miss Leah Domanski has been selected in the D9710 GSE Team to visit Germany in May 2011.
