AACC BBQ and Cricket Match - AACC vs. BABC

As part of Australia week, on Sunday the 23th of January 2011, the Australian-American Chamber of Commerce will be hosting our 2nd annual family BBQ and Australia vs England Cricket match at Bear Creek Park (Pavilion 6)! Click for Park Map.

The day has very generously been sponsored by Macquarie.

The cricket will be a casual affair (played in backyard style). Although winning isn't important (right!) - the AACC must defend its title from the BABC and once again bring home the other Ashes! The game will be 20 over's per side.  EDITOR'S NOTE: TO REGISTER TO PLAY FOR THE BABC SIDE CLICK HERE.

In the style of the Country Women's Association, the bake off will focus on Aussie delights. There will be three categories: Lamingtons, Pikelets and an open category. Entries must be submitted by 11.30 on the day and prizes will be awarded. Please provide at least 6 samples of each (i.e. 6 lamingtons), a sticker with your name on the bottom of the dish, age (if under 18), phone number, and the ingredients of your culinary masterpiece.

As council regulations prohibit the passing of money on park property, it is EXTREMELY important that you purchase your tickets to the BBQ before the day and preferably by Wednesday, January 19th.  Click here to register and purchase tickets.

Members $10
Non-Members $12
Children $5

Tickets cannot be purchased on the day at the Park!!

Food and beverages will be provided on the day. There are plenty of picnic tables at the ground, but feel free to bring along your chairs, picnic rugs and footballs to kick around!
