Early times…no shed, no veranda, no backstops, no tunnels…
We were grateful for the container, but… (It was a bugger to close too)

Our clubroom was an auxiliary storage area too, full of stuff!
Note no veranda.

Our equipment shed back then…

We had nets that we had to put up on poles as backstops on both diamonds for our games -and stored in the container!
It was like putting 10 kilos into a 5 kilo bag!!!


Mouth watering size! 😊

So much room!!!

Almost there…

Its soo BIG!

Finished at last!

And we went from there! We were on our way…

Hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane.
Compared to those days, It is so easy nowadays to just come out, put out the bases and PLAY!

So, don’t run away when you are asked to put away equipment and groom the diamond! 😊

Stay well –
Wear a mask where needed, social distance and sanitize.
We can do this.
