Join Yandina Pioneers Cricket club for the Golden Oldies festival.

The Yandina "Pioneers" Cricket Club Inc, in association with Bartercard, are hosting three games during the upcoming Air New Zealand "Golden Oldies" cricket festival between September 4th and 11th.

Yandina cricket has been fortunate to gain the sponsorship support and enthusiasm of the worlds premier trade exchange, Bartercard, to allow us to host the cricket games at Yandina's complex and ovals in a manner that will greatly enhance the enjoyment of the visiting participants and further promote this region as a major tourist destination all over the world.

The cricket matches start on Sunday 5th of September with play starting at 11.00 am. The matches are a limited over match with each side facing a maximum of 40 overs. Bartercard signs will be erected adjacent to the grounds and any batsman hitting the signs with a six will win a prize. After play has finished for the day, the teams will stay on at the club to socialise and meet club members and members of the public. The club will provide a range of finger food and drinks.

During the games and after, there will be a range of local produce presented on platters for sampling from players along with the promotional material from the supporting companies.

The peak day will be on Tuesday, as we have organised a memorabilia auction with Mr Sam Loxton, a member of Bradman's invincibles, booked as a guest speaker. During the day, we are hopeful of festival ambassador, Allan Border, dropping in to watch the cricket and meet spectators. With several international players, rumoured to include NZ great Richard Hadlee and Alvin Kallicharran from the West Indies, are amongst the teams playing, you could even meet a former test great so come along!

We are working with Bartercard to get the "Bartercard Indy girls" to also turn up on the day and assist with the auction. The festival are making plans to bus in players from other matches which will swell numbers to 200+ as well as the spectators. Under the marquee, the festivities will be in full swing. We will approach the radio stations to have an outside broadcast during the day to further wind up the excitement and enjoyment of the festival.

Thursday will be the final game at Yandina and we intend to give the teams a big send off from our club and region. A BBQ along with other activities will ensure that the players fortunate enough to have played at Yandina, will have had the best time of the whole festival.

We want any and every member of the public and club members to get on down to Yandina and meet these players and make them realise that country hospitality and fun are key aspects of cricket around Yandina "Pioneers" cricket club.
