Over 40 guests joined the President, Peter Bothwick for a fine buffet lunch before scrambling for the premium deckchairs on the outside terrace to watch the cricket.
The weather was perfect and many more joined the crowd during the afternoon to witness The Select President's 1X being well beaten by a strong Botany Bay team.
A hardy core invested another couple of hours in the bar dissecting the game and explaining to Geoff Blackmore (skippering his last game) where we went wrong.
A very enjoyable highlight in our annual calendar.
