Old Owens Cricket TOUR 2014 - SRI LANKA
Latest Update to the OLD OWENS CRICKET CLUB tour to SRI LANKA 2014 (organised by Old Owens Cricket club player UPALI PERERA).
THIS UPDATE IS COURTESY of FIONA & TIM LANE.
Good afternoon to all prospective Sri Lankan Tourists.
A very cold snowy February on a Monday seems to be the perfect time to think about Cricket and to contact all Cricket Club members regarding our tour to Sri Lanka in February 2014.
On the List currently and up for the adventure are 20 Cricketers, 6 Sunbathers and 1 Travelling Umpire.
So that the Tour Company know that we are fully committed as a Club and can progress with organising the tour, it is now time to pay deposits. The deposit amount is £150 per head and is due to be paid by the end of this month (February).
We will be advising the Tour Company that we wish to travel over the half term-dates in February 2014, which is the week beginning Monday 17th.
However to ensure that we can achieve a 9 night tour, 3 different venues and 4 cricket matches as originally suggested at the Club Dinner Presentation, we would need to be flexible around these dates, possibly travelling on Thursday 13th/ Friday 14th and returning Monday 24th. Naturally the Tour Company will advise us of what is possible re flights/hotels etc.
To help everyone Budget for the Trip, we have set up a Tour Account. You can use the Account to pay your deposit Online and to set up a Direct Debit (DD) for monthly payments to help spread the cost of the Tour which has been estimated at £1500 - £1600. If you plan to use the Account for Online transfers/Direct Debit, please use your Surname as a reference.
If you would prefer, you can also send your deposit cheques to us, the Lanes (Fiona & Tim) at the address below:
