Mens Captains Prize, Day 1
Richie Benaud once said, “Any captain can only do his best for the team and for cricket. When you are winning, you are a hero. Lose, and the backslappers fade away”. Well our Captain Gary Corcoran must have been winning at the weekend given the numbers who turned up for Day 1 of his prize, such was the respect for the man. The participants all started with dreams of hallowed immortality, but as usual some were delusional. The leaders at this half way point are Paul Bates, Peadar Gill and Canice Hogan. Buts it’s a long road yet, and many a good man has exploded on Day 2 so watch this space.
Remember we will be having a joint presentation with the Lady Captain, meal and band in the Riverside Hotel Virginia on Friday August 26th at 8pm, tickets will be on sale next Sunday.
Mens Spring League
For many Easter is a holy and spiritual time of year, a time to take stock, be glad and thankful with what you have and to look to the future reinvigorated and motivated for the year ahead. Some of our members are in that position in the Spring League, others are wondering what they are doing exactly in it at all! Nonetheless things are hotting up with only a couple of rounds to go with the Captain still in contention for the league and quite frankly this cannot be allowed to happen. He will get enough plaudits and kind words this year based purely on rank to not need to be complimented for winning things as well.
Sticks Auction; Following last years success, the Ramor club will be hosting another sticks auction in November. Details to follow.
Ramor AGM; The annual general meeting is due to take place on Sunday 9th of December at 3 o’ clock in the club grounds. We would urge all members to attend.
