Hosepipe bans notwithstanding, some serious rainfall as put paid to today's Twenty20 matches at Larkhill. A great disappointment, especially as last week's fixture - had AAC not conceded - would have been rained off, too. We now await the Surridge Inter Corps Twenty20 festival without having a single match under our belts. Not an ideal situation, but one hopes that there will be some improvement in the weather before then.

Meanwhile, there's another opportunity for training, today, at Aldershot gym.

The Royal Signals Corps CC joins us, tomorrow, as both teams prepare for next week's Surridge Sports Inter Corps Twenty20 competition. Weather aside, the course of play is for two Twenty20 games to be played over the day. This is a great opportunity for new players as well as existing squad members.

RACC v AAC & Training

AAC CC has withdrawn from the POWER Cup Inter-Corps cricket fixture on Wednesday, 18 April and has, consequently, forfeited the game and points. RACC has rescheduled training, at Larkhill, to Wednesday and cancelled the session previously arranged for Tuesday afternoon.

It's a pity that AAC won't be visiting us; we'll happily accept the points but thrashing them would certainly have been our preference. So it's an 11:00 start for training on Wednesday morning ... see you all there.

The 2012 season starts with the Inter-Corps POWER Cup fixture against the Army Air Corps CC, at the Sharp Ground, Larkhill, on Wednesday, 18 April, at 11:00 hrs. An early start to the season due to Olympic Games commitments with training commencing one day earlier, on Tuesday, 17 April, at 13:00 hrs; a late start for training to accommodate Easter Leave.

At the 2012 AGM, new Club Officials were announced. Major General Nick Eeles, ADC, succeeds Major General Bill Moore, CBE, who has resigned from the Army. Welcome, General Nick and farewell, General Bill. We are enormously grateful to General Bill for his immense contribution to Gunner Cricket; he was our Chairman for two years and our President for twelve. The RACC will be forever in his debt and we wish him well for the future.

The Annual General Meeting of the Royal Artillery Cricket Club will be held on Monday, 12 March, starting at 1400hrs and will be chaired by Col Jez Bennett.

Following last years success, VTC will again be used to allow for greater attendance from across the Regiment and reduce travel burden. There will however be two main locations – MoD Main Bldg and RHQ RA, Larkhill – for those wishing to attend in person.

Cricket Officers are to reply with scheduled attendance and VTC IP number, where necessary, to the Secretary by Mon 5 Mar.

Congratulations to Gilo and Jimmy on their selection for promotion to Lieutenant Colonel, announced on 09 February. The Club Secretary commented, "Clearly their extracurricular activities added that final half point to get them over the line". He added, "Now we just need to get Bennett, Bates, Whiting, Caiger, Banham and Kincaid on the pitch, together, to prove our youth policy ...".
