It has happened. The 2011 season has commenced with a Nets and fielding session. I know that you all had good reasons for not being there and it’s cool and some of you were lovely enough to say you weren’t coming and i love you all for it, comrades. However, thanks to my fellow attendees, Dan March, Charlie Richards and fellow founder member, Rob Dixon, we put a good show on at Paddington Rec.
This was a new venue for us all as last year we Netted (?) at Regent’s Park Hub. I think we may well split it a bit this year between there and Paddington. The latter has lights and all and everything! They seem a bit wider too which i felt induced me to swing out a bit more. That and the new shorter Harrow handled bat that i am wielding! You can’t see it in my shot but Dan is smacking a ball hard with it below.
Dan is of the finest Media Acting fraternity and regularly appears with his comedy gang: The Real MacGuffins However, there was no comedy on Wednesday, it was hot, sweaty and fast. Get in, son!
Rob accompanied me to the nets and he is barely off the back of a variety of 3D projects for us here at Pogo. Despite me having told him there was months ahead to be spent in an edit suite staring at Victorian photographs, he still was happy to Net-Up – Fine man – good comrade! I am so moved i have to include another Thumbnail.
I am very impressed by the steady and reliable bat of Charlie. Another of our media acting fraternity and seen below delivering another good length ball. Watch out in the field, he has a good pair of hands and can pick up well in the slips i think!
We moved out from the nets and seven and then hurt each other horribly by various ball chucking exercises and sometimes catching too. Some small bruises. Must lose that fear and face the ball. Ouch!
More nets soon. May be last minute so watch out for a blog!
Your comrade in Administerdom, Yuri.
