PadMir International presents:
CRICKET SIXES TOURNAMENTS
I am e-mailing to inform you of a couple of Cricket Sixes Tournaments being held in the next six months.
My name is Michael P Maher (Cat) and I am an official Co-ordinator for a number of cricket sixes tournaments, including the 2 events mentioned below. I am also one of the official co-ordinators for the world famous Chiang Mai International Cricket Sixes Tournament.
I have a number of people who will speak on my behalf if you want any proof of me being authentic in this position as a co-ordinator for these events.
I am located in Australia and handle all teams in Europe, Africa, Asia and the America's. My partner, Dr Richard Davis is located in London and he is my representative for Europe and helps also with the other regions.
Each of the events mentioned below are a great chance
to either have a guys club cricketers trip away, or to come along with
partners and friends to combine some cricket and pleasure on a holiday.
The Penang Sports Club Cricket Section has been successfully organising the last 5 International Cricket 6’s.
This tournament is held on the beautiful tourist Island
of Penang in Malaysia.
The challenge trophy has also been upgraded and re-named as the "Tunku Imran Trophy" to befit the event. It has also been featured in the National Cricket Calender as an important event.
Objectives / Aim
The main objective is to allow members to play lots of Cricket among the invited Clubs and thereafter socialise and enjoy the company of the participants from the respective Clubs.
Date of Tournament
The tournament for this year has been fixed for during the weekend of 1st to 3rd December 2000.
The State of Penang presently boasts of having more Cricket pitches after being the venue for the just concluded "SUKMA Malaysia". With additional facilities being available, we unlike previous years would not restrict participation by any team. You will be able to enter more than one team.
Dinner / Entertainment
A grand dinner will be hosted on Saturday, 2 December 2000 to extend the usual Penang Sports Club hospitality.
The closing date for nomination and acceptance for this unique event is 15 August 2000.
The entrance fee for the tournament remains the same as last year i.e. US$250.00 per team. (The fee covers the welcome cocktail party, souvenir and the grand tournament dinner and shows).
So, why not come to Penang and:
Play some cricket.
The 3rd Waratah International Sixes - Newcastle
NSW / Australia
The Waratah Cricket club has successfully run this event for a couple of years but it has mainly been a local club tournament. The club officials wish to expand in an attempt to make it a truly international event.
The New Year 2001 cricket Test match between Australia and the West Indies begins on Thursday the 4th January, 2001 in Sydney.
Non local and international teams will have there minimum 4 games on Thursday the 11th and Sunday the 14th of January.
We will be arranging special events for teams from outside, to the Hunter Valley (a great wine region of Australia), like Golf, a tour of the vineyards or maybe a few beers at at a local pub.
Dinner / Entertainment
There will be a couple of evening events with a closing dinner at the Waratah Club on Sunday evening the 14th of January 2001.
As yet this has not been announced but it is probably going to be similar as the $250 USD that is charged for Penang Sixes.
So why not come to Australia for the new year to:
So why not have a talk to your club members and come to one of the tournaments, they are great fun.
