Report by Daniel Mortlock:
This year's President's XI was to be an extra-special celebration of the club's thousandth match, so it was decided to take the unprecedented step of booking a reserve day, just in case the first date was washed out. Given the forecast, this seemed to have been a most prescient decision . . . but, in the end, the rain held off and we had a fabulous celebration of all things Remnants.
What to do with the reserve day? There was brief talk of trying to get together a "World XI" made up of players from our regular opposition clubs, but in the end we ran out of time (and players), so that plan will be attempted for the match on August 22.
