Remnants vs. Remnants
Wednesday, June 29, 2005
Well, at least there's a crock of something at the end of the rainbow . . .
When I decided to spend this week in Paris my only regret was that I
would be missing out on the annual Remnants vs. Remnants game.
I was all ready to be envious of those 22 lucky souls who got
try their luck against their clubmates,
but got back from France to find that we'd all missed out,
and so I was immeidately delighted with my choice of holiday week.
Not that all was lost -- we still had a whole lot of beer and
meat to dispose of, and so a reasonably good time was had by all
who stayed 'round . . . although I think the food was a bit better in
In the foreground we have John Richer (at far left)
and Joe White (at far right)
in their masculine baby blue one-day kit trying to
intimidate Les Collings (centre left) and Faruk Kara (centre right)
in their, um, more feminine salmon shirts.
Geoff Hales (even further left)
and Phil Watson (in the background centre) looks on disapprovingly.
Dave Norman, Andy Owen and Les Collings
ponder the English summer.
A couple of undercooked sausages.
Paul Jordan, Les Collings and Tom Jordan wait patiently while their
meat is charred.
In the background Geoff Hales introduces Remnants would-be debutante
Chris McNeill to the joys of the wash-out
while Pete Warner decides he'll have his sausages ``medium rare''.
