Looking forward to seeing a large multitude of you on Friday night at NZ House. Doors open at about 6.15 or so; we will be serving Monteiths and Mud House wines at unbelievably good prices along with NZ-inspired food from Escence Catering, and of course the big attraction is the Famous Meat Raffle, which will feature Frozen Chickens (of course) and a whole lot more good stuff like beef, lamb, cricket stuff, beer, wine and other such things…
BLAZERS please! Otherwise smart casual (something slightly more dressy then redbands or jandals will suffice)
Game of Throwings: We raised the Drawbridge at 1982 on the basis that at least people born then had a shot at remembering Queen’s unbelievable performance of Radio Gaga at Live Aid`. Those born after 1982 skittled those born pre-1982; chasing down 138 in only 14 overs. Much of this was due to swashbuckling opening from Andrew Haines who bludgeoned 43 runs off G.Walsh’s 3 overs. Whither your three pet dragons when you need them?

All can be seen and signed up for here – http://www.lnzcc.org/fixtures-calendar.html - the Hagley game is a very good one to get involved with if you have not played it.
The delivery has arrived and we now have LNZCC playing shirts, trousers, vests and long-sleeve jumpers. The latter are real ones of knitted wool, not some artificial thing derived from petrochemicals. Please contact Chris for your orders.
See you soon
