The practice planned for tonight (Sunday, 14 April) has been cancelled because of the wet, cold weather. It snowed earlier today; snow and cricket are generally a bad combination (ask anyone who has played county cricket in Durham in April…)
MCA will try to arrange a joint practice with Motown C. C. during the week — possibly on Thursday night. Watch the web site, the Facebook page, and email for announcements.
