Hobart Tour Australia Day Weekend 2021

Mount Wellington, Tasmania

 

Following the enjoyable tour to Perth in January 2020 the Club proposes a tour to Hobart over the same period next year with 3 games to be organised over the period Friday 22 –Wednesday 27 January 2021. Preliminary enquiries suggest we should have no problem in arranging games

Hobart has great food and wine; spectacular scenery nearby –see Mt Wellington above, the Salamanca markets,  a very interesting colonial past with Port Arthur only a couple of hours drive, and of course the word famous MONA Art Gallery.

For those interested in the cricket a fascinating cricket museum at the spectacular Bellerive Oval on the banks of the Derwent.

Air fares are cheap and if we were to stay in the historic and famous  Hadleys Oriental Hotel in the centre of Hobart, where we stayed in 2011,  accommodation should be less than $100pp p day See: www.hadleyshotel.com.au.

At this stage we are just looking for those members who may be interested in coming – no commitment nor deposits at this stage – to contact Soren Hughes  (v/c C&S): Tours@ccnsw.com .

The immediate response by Club members to this proposed tour has been extremely positive. We already have $900 deposits from 20 people (12 long standing  C.C.N.S.W.  players) to secure their place on the tour: Rob Bevilacqua (2), John Fish, David Jones (2) Steve Kish (2),  Bruce Pendlebury (2), Tom Robertson, Matt Russell , Nick Saady,  Dave Stewart (2), John Wise (2),  Trevor Worland (2), and  Ken Yardy (2).

We probably only have room for 4-5 more players. We want to give priority to all current C.C.N.S.W. members in particular those playing regularly for our C&S/Masters/Classics/Vintage/ LMS sides.
