RSVP is now disabled - we have a few BBQ tickets to sell at the event.
Mark your calendars and plan to join the AACC and BABC in collaboration with the Marin Cricket Club at the annual Clashes for the Ashes Cricket Match. Watch some exciting cricket, enjoy an Aussie-Style BBQ lunch, Aussie beer and wine and fine British beverages. This is a great day out for all the family with games for the kids at half time and a bouncy castle! - set up your chairs and enjoy the sun in Larkspur.
We will also have several great raffle prizes!
50% of the proceeds of the Raffle will be donated to the recovery fund for Michael Bank's post operative care following his kidney transplant on August 12th. Michael, a fellow Brit, needs to raise $40,000 for his recovery fund before they will agree to carry out this life-saving operation. Michael has been a staunch supporter and player in the Clashes for the Ashes match for many years. If you would like to donate please click here. It's quick, simple and easy!
Hosted by the AACC, BABC and the Australian and British Consulate-Generals.
Every year hundreds of spectators from around the Bay Area turn up to watch a veritable feast of cricketing drama. A game of intense competition and usually an excruciatingly close finish is guaranteed. This one day game is played with perhaps as much ardor and passion as the 'real' Ashes series between the test teams and this year, the British will be throwing down the gauntlet to win back the trophy from the Australians, 2013 champions, with gusto.
There's no better way to spend a summer's day than reclining behind the boundary rope in front of a backdrop of beautiful Mount Tamalpais and pretty marquees with their fluttering flags. Enjoy strawberries and cream and Pimms and Aussie BBQ fayre washed down by the best of British and Australian beers.
Bring friends and family, including the smallest children who will especially love the special kids' games staged at the lunch break.
This year it's anyone's guess who will win. So come on down to Piper Park on August 23rd and cheer on your team! (Polite sledging allowed!)
