An Invitation for the Cricket
Just a few more days and the Old Thomians will be at it again!
This time it’s a Cricket Carnival at the Big Club Grounds
on Saturday the 6th of September.
There are already 32 Old Boy Batch teams registered for the
Soft Ball Sixes which will be played in a league format. Thomian
class groups spanning 5 decades are playing each other for
the honour of some serious bragging rights and to walk away
with the Challenge trophies. Although the focus will be on
4 exciting matches playing simultaneously, there is a lot
more activity for your family as well. Not to worry, the event’s
organizing Class of 1990 have ensured everyone will be entertained
in a Vibrant Carnival Mood.
There will be bouncers, party trains, games, face painting
and pony rides, fairground games of skill, including a shooting
gallery and a water dunk, antique cars, boats, and other fun
stuff for children of all ages.
For you old boys and your better halves there is a promise
of unbounded fun and frolic with DJ music and a request stall
to bring back some nostalgia. Also Papare Bands with friendly
Cheer leaders to lead your kaawadii dance. For the weary a
relaxing foot rub and massage courtesy the principle sponsors
TIGO who have also lined up other fun stuff under their sleeve.
John Keels Elephant House and Perera & Sons will be there
selling delicious short eats, breakfast and lunch along with
the essential soft drinks, bites and ice. Good ole Karti,
and the Acharu / Annasi Amme will also be there.
Laughs will conduct emission testing for your vehicle whilst
Apolo will conduct free health checks on you. The event organizing
committee will however not take responsibility for the quality
and outcome of these reports as we are fairly sure we had
no control on what you did before this event! However, we
will be happy to have Kodak take your picture with you batch
mates and / or your family.
Raffle tickets with some super prizes will be available for
those who want to chance their luck. No matter if you don’t
win as all proceeds from this day will go towards the renovation
and restoration of the College Tuck-shop and Pavilion.
You too may want to be involved in this chapter of Thomian
history and make a donation as an individual or a group in
the register that will be eventually displayed in the restored
pavilion. So bring your cheque book along.
In any case the Cricket Carnival promises to be fantastic
fun for all so make sure you and your family are there! Saturday
the 6th of September from 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. Free Parking
at the Small Club Grounds.
Our Media Sponsors Yes FM & MTV have ensured that Thomians
Young & Old from Near and Far will gather in their numbers.
Don’t miss it for the World.
