GCC Dads “Guarantee-A-Game” Scheme Launched

Egg Before Whicker

The real meaning of significant religious traditions is all too often lost in today’s ever-changing world. However, as we all know from history, Easter is all about eating chocolate eggs, seeing baby rabbits and chickens – and a four day holiday weekend of hot cross buns for breakfast.

Also, Easter falls around the time of an extremely important and significant event – the start of the GCC cricket season (roughly). Whilst this year we will have played at least two “two-jumper” games by Good Friday, it’s still a great excuse to think seriously about the season ahead.

Dads, on the 22nd April 2011 at 10.30 am, bring yourself and any/all of your children (of any age) to the GCG for coffee, biscuits and the first ever “GCC Easter Egg Hunt!”.

No wives, girlfriends, “life-partners” allowed – they should all be encouraged to go to Tara Beauty at the Venus Spa at The Swan Hotel, St. Reatley upon The Thames – to have some well-earned “mum time”. Meanwhile, the Dads look after the little ones whilst taking part in hunting down the eggs in the bushes around the ground – and no doubt locating a few of those lost balls from Hedgey’s bowling too. We’ll also find time to chat about the coming cricket season – and how much we love our better halves, of course.

Print Me.

Finally, for giving mum such a wonderful morning off, why not print out this Game Token too? Just in case.

If you want to come along, email play@upswinger.com say how many of the little darlings you will be bringing on the day – and we will keep you up to speed with specifics about the event.



Note: In case of emergency, we will be showing a DVD of “Three Men and A Baby/Little Lady” on loop throughout the morning for help and ideas.

    Having seen your batting last night, you should not be dissing Big G and Big J like this. A few prayers are needed before the coming seaon.

    What bothers me about 2011 is that I took my one wicket for the season in the first half a dozen deliveries last night. I’ve only got the half-trackers and full tosses to look forward to…


  3. Apologies. To be clear, I was not dissing Big G or Big J at all – more so our wretched society. A few players are needed before the coming season, correct. As such, my batting wouldn’t (thankfully) be needed!
