NZIFCR to Adelaide AuIFCR Festival 20 – 26 October 2012

Other Otions


NZIFCR is invited to enter a team in the October AuIFCR Adelaide Festival. The Programme can be seen by clicking here

 The budget will be in the order of $465 for the Festival.  The games area being played at Kensington Cricket Club, where we played on our last visit to Adelaide, and at Park 25.

Accommodation cost will depend on numbers in our group. We will be looking at shared two bedroom apartment accommodation in the heart of Adelaide at $54.000 per head per night. We will need to book early to secure this deal.

There is an exciting bonus to our October trip. We have been invited to participate in a bush cricket weekend from 2nd to 5 November 2012 at Charles and Fay Townsing’s property at Cawkers Well, Wilcannia, NSW. This is a couple of hundred K West of Broken Hill. Yes, this is in the middle of nowhere, and the game may well be a Pro Hart painting.

Also attending this weekend will be members of the RI Flying Fellowship, and members of the Motorcycling, and Recreational Vehicle Fellowships.

Activities will include cricket, BBQ’s, sleeping out, or in the shearing shed, star gazing and some other diversions like nearest-the-pin golf, or trap shooting, and sheep shearing………

We will need to sort out bedding arrangements under the stars or canvas……..

Meals on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday will be catered for by the Rotary Club of Broken Hill.

Ablution facilities are available, but limited in number. 

Plan B if wet weather intervenes will see the weekend being held in Broken Hill.

Some NZIFCR members have expressed an interest in an itinerary which takes us from Sydney to Broken Hill by train or by air, and to play a game there, and from there take in the Cawkers Well Weekend; and after that venture down through Western Victoria and the Great Ocean Road with games possible in Mildura, Hamilton, Horsham, Mt Gambier, Portland and Warrnambool. Or this might be done the in reverse starting in Melbourne.

We need to receive expressions of interest for the Adelaide week 21-26 October trip by no later than 1st July.
