Probably For The Best
Pacific v Strongroom CC at Highgate Wood
Sat 06 Sep 2008 at 1pm
Friendly fixture

The host side were given the option of going to Conference or biding time for an indecisive Membership to commit. Risky you may agree so they took up the option. There's also that forecast...

"Agreed - weather looks grim, but you never know, we might just get through. As you know, the Highgate Woods track is bad at absorbing rainfall, but I usually leave ringing the staff there until thursday/friday, as anytime before then they say it's too early to tell. "

"Just seems a real pity not to have a game because of lack of players - especially if the weather holds. We only have 10 home games at the Woods each summer, and have had some of those cancelled already due to weather and lack of oppo!"

"I took your lead on the conference idea, and have managed to secure a replacement team.I hope you are OK with this. As I am away from the office for the next two days, i really had to secure an opposition to ensure we had a fixture - though the weather will probably have the final say.It's a pity as we always look forwards to playing Pacific, as it's always a competitive encounter .Oh well, let's look forwards to our October fixture at Wray Crescent.
