Alex, Vic, Richard, Tiggs, Peter, Kate and Julian turned out for the first winter practice of 2006/07. Some of us arrived early and got in some throwing and batting practice. Tiggs and I went for a run round the pitch. I didnt find this too bad and will definitely do some more running to improve fitness.
Duncan and some of the Strays arrived and we did some throwing drills and then played some games with 7 a side.
Tom from the Strays showed how effective you can be with long distance accurate throws to first base.
Kate was very quick to spot a ten pound note of mine which had blown out of my carrier bag.
Afterwards we went to the pub and played pool which I hadnt had a go at for years.
It was a very good day and exceptionally mild for late October.
