    Oh yes it was

    I've dug this up because I'm now working at Edgbaston Cricket Centre, which means I can get a net for £22 per hour (around 6 people per lane but they're not too fussy) if people want to do another meet-up in the summer

    Right, 2007.

    This thread, aside from making Phoenix Fire look really bloody silly, has given me the spark of an idea.

    Last summer we got 10 CWers together in Birmingham and messed around with an incrediball for an afternoon. This summer, why can't we get 11 together, find a willing club in the Midlands to host us one Sunday in August, and play as the Cricket Web XI for the first time?

    As is obvious from the history of CW meetups, nothing happens unless I organise it, so shotgun the captaincy. What I want to know is: who will in the UK next summer and willing to spend one Sunday afternoon representing Cricket Web on the field of play?

    Should definitely make this.
    Going on holiday for 2 weeks in mid/late August which should be the only time i can't do it and i live centrally so won't be needing transport etc.

    Definitely up for it, and shotgun the vice-captaincy, seeing as I'm one of the few who is likely to have had captaincy experience.

    If I'm available, sounds like a great idea. I suggest we try our hardest to recruit those among us who can actually play, though, especially if you and I are going to be the captaincy unit. By that I mean Hingston, Bowman, Crampton, Roberts, Young, maybe some others who I can't think of.

    Great idea. I'm definately up for it as well, but if you can get a stronger side out then don't select me.

    Don`t know how easy it would be for me to get there, but it`d be an honour.

    Ipswich > Birmingham

    Takes 3:30 hours on the train. One way of going is via London, the other is via Peterborough. Ticket price is probably the worst bit.
