The Houston Ashes Cricket Match - in association with Australia Week


AUSTRALIA WEEK BBQ  - Sunday January 24, 2010 10.30-3.30

As part of Australia week, on 24 January 2010, the Australian-American Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a BBQ and Australia vs England Cricket match at Bear Creek Park (Pavilion 6).  The day has very generously been sponsored by Macquarie.

The day will be a celebration of all things Aussie, beating the poms at cricket, snags on the barbie and an old fashioned baking competition.  There will also be a bouncing castle for the little ones.

The cricket will be a casual affair (played in backyard style). Although winning is still important (right!)-  the winners of the "match" will take home the inaugural "Australian American Chamber of Commerce  Trophy" (a.k.a. the other Ashes!).  
The game will commence at 10.30 am.

In the style of the Country Women's Association, the bake off will focus on Aussie delights. There will be three categories: Lamingtons, Pikelets and an open category.  Entries must be submitted by 11.30 on the day and prizes will be awarded.  Please provide at least 6 samples of each (i.e. 6 lamingtons) and a card stating your name, age (if under 18), phone number and the ingredients of your culinary masterpiece.

As council regulations prohibit the passing of money of park property, it is EXTREMELY important that you purchase your tickets to the BBQ before the day and preferably by Wednesday 20 January.  This can be done

Members $10
Non-Members $12
Children $5

Tickets cannot be purchased on the day at the Park!!

Food and soft drinks will be provided on the day.  BYO alcohol is permitted but NO GLASS CONTAINERS are allowed.  There are plenty of picnic tables at the ground, but feel free to bring along your chairs, picnic rugs and footballs to kick around!
