In a wonderful game at Caloundra on Sun 21st May, HT successfully chased 211 in the penultimate over.
The VOP 2017 tour group included 4 NZ HT’s who participated throughout the week and the usual great time was had by all on what is the VOP’s 10th Anniversary Tour to Australia.
Our congratulations on this achievement and sincere thanks to Caloundra CC who have been first-class hosts over many years to both VOP and the Trundlers.
The now traditional after trophy-match gathering at the Mooloolaba Yacht Club was a perfect finish to the day and we all look forward to our 2018 Tour to NZ.
Dates to be notified soon, again thanks to our great NZ friends for another brilliant week and thanks to all the Aus HT’s for their efforts and support, roll on February 2018.
Congratulations to Peter Watt #83 for a thoroughly deserved win in the 2017 HTNZ Man of Tour award.
Last year’s winner #61 was on hand to pass the baton in the China Kitchen, Christchurch at the conclusion of another unforgettable tour.
#83 excelled on the field all trip, with his usual diligence also on display in the “finance” portfolio to leave #23 under considerable pressure to regain the role in future tours.
Well done #83, great recognition from your touring teammates to a thoroughly deserving Honest Trundler.
To ALL Honest Trundlers,
Wishing you and your Trundler family a very merry Christmas and a new year where you can always put it there or thereabouts.
Hoping you will get to trundle in the backyard over the festive season, but remember to keep it cat’s arse tight at the death or smear that single in a diarrhoea finish.
If you are doing any late present shopping and not sure what to buy, fill your basket with pissex or even head down to Ray Poole Motors and pick yourself up a bargain.
But, please stay safe and let’s hope you don’t need rescuing like this Trundler.
Numbers are the key secret!
Congratulations to #26 for repaying the faith shown by his VOP Captain with a five wicket haul against TCC at Maroochydore on Tues 24th May.
Many of his victims were Honest Trundlers, who are now a permanent part of history having their numbers emblazoned on his special red underwear.
Expect this not to be forgotten easily!
For the record, TCC hung on for a tense last wicket victory, but the outstanding performance for the day came from The Jockey #26, bagging 5 wickets for 39.
We all look forward to next time…best wishes to all.
