End of Season Lunch, October 2015
Over 50 guests attended the End of Season Lunch, held in the Headingley Pavilion on Friday 15th October and due to the team’s continued triumph there was a lively and convivial atmosphere amongst the diners.
The occasion gave opportunity for our new Patron, Sir Gary Verity, to be introduced to the membership and in privately thanking the Chairman he expressed his gratitude at being invited.
The meal fitted the occasion and I think even the most stalwart Yorkshireman was astounded at the size of the Yorkshire puddings! So well done Sedoxo for producing such an admirable lunch and ensuring that it was served in an efficient and gracious manner.
The customary raffle raised £122 for Association funds and Veronica and Joan are hereby thanked for their hard work.
As was the case at the end of season lunch 2014 the Championship Trophy was on display and many members availed themselves of the opportunity to be pictured with it as well as giving it a rub for continued good fortune.
On Sunday 27th September a small but very appreciative audience heard Dr Dean Allen talk about the beginnings of international cricket between England and South in the later years of the 19th century.
In a fascinating presentation Dr Allen told the audience about the role of Scotsman James Logan in establishing the town of Matjiesfontein in the 1880s, his part in the politics of Cape Colony and his relationships with men such as Cecil Rhodes.
We heard about his efforts along with Lord Hawke of Yorkshire to set up cricket tours between English and “South African” teams and the motives, not always altruistic, behind the tours.
Using his book “Empire, War and cricket” as the basis for his talk, illustrated with photographs and anecdotes, Dr Allen both entertained and educated the audience with the story of cricket, politics and history.
