Allstars Tour to Bergerac

Actually, despite what it says in the post below, the cricketing highlight of 2010 is the Allstars Tour to Bergerac. Our annual overseas tour is one of the key events of the season. The cricket is not taken terribly seriously, there’s lots of banter and fun, and overall it’s heartily recommended.

This year’s overseas tour will be to Bergerac, in the Dordogne region of south-western France, from Thursday 23rd – Monday 27th September. There will be two cricket matches, on the Saturday and Sunday, against two local village teams, St Aulaye CC and Eymet CC. As usual our opponents are mainly English ex-pats – probably of a slightly more mature vintage than sides we’ve encountered on recent tours.

It should be a slightly more laid back tour than some, in very civilised surroundings, with the cricket played at attractive rural grounds.

In terms of costs, the flights will be about Β£130. It is also possible to drive there. The hotel will be about 32 Euros per night if sharing a twin room. As the matches aren’t till Saturday, it’s perfectly feasible for you not to come till the Friday if you wish.

If you wish to express an interest, please email maxie as soon as you can. You don’t need to commit yet — but we need to know whether you’re in the loop.

There is also a facebook page for the tour, which will definitely be worth following, especially for the inevitable photos…
