Swannies’ 5th Annual Test Cricket Day at MCG a big hit
Posted by Vietnam Swans on December 29, 2011
Yesterday, the Swannies returned to the MCG for the 5th Annual Cricket Day – Day 3 of the Boxing Day Test Match in Melbourne between Australia and India.
It was a big hit with 18 people coming along which made it our biggest turnout yet.
We had Richard Beecher, Dez and Fleur Limbrick, Mark “Willy” Williams, Dave “Flyer” Kainey, Danny Monkey, Phil “Fabbo” Johns, Nick Shiells, Bud 1, Garry Shiells, John Carey, Stan Middleton, Ryan Tierney, Michael Garnham, Mat Garnham, Jez Limbrick, Chris and Dan.
fantastic fun meeting up with everyone and, dressed in our Swannies’ colours, we also received plenty of looks.
A highlight of the day was after the cricket, Willy and Fabbo went into Richmond. They started talking to a woman who works for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). She is best mates with Irvo, the Navy guy who played a key role in organising the footy match against our first touring RAN ship, HMAS ANZAC in 2008. She then called Irvo and they had a great chat. The Swannies keep shrinking that world!
Today, the Swannies go out to Ivanhoe golf course for the Swannies’ 7th Annual Ryan Jeffery Golf Classic. That will be followed by the Inaugural Swannies’ Celebratrion Soiree at the Rainbow Hotel in Fitzroy.
It’s all a hoot. And it just keeps getting bigger.
