Superstars Tour 2006

A message from Ken Block about next year's Superstars tour to Somerset. There is an open invitation to Dodgers to attend.

"It's that time of the year again, where I ask you all if you would be interested in coming along on the Superstars 2006 cricket tour. We intend to travel back to Somerset again this year, staying around the Wells area.

For those that did come last year, the accommodation will be better this time around.

The dates are as follows:

Leaving Friday 28 April. Returning Tuesday 2 May 2006.

We hope as usual to play 4 games, 1 late afternoon / early evening fixture on the Friday and 3 half day games Saturday to Monday.

I would be grateful if you could let me know by the end of the week whether you would be interested in coming. At this stage, we just need a rough idea, so we will not hold you to your answer. You can come alone, or you can bring your partner, and kids if you want to. So when you reply, let me know. Please also let me know if you are not interested, so I don't bother you again with reminder EMAILs.

I look forward to hearing from you."
