19 years and still going strong….!!!!

The Annual Cricket match. It  all started between Currumbin and Tugun after friends finished school and needed to keep the fires of competition alive. As Currumbin is far more spectacular  in every way than Tugun could ever want to be, the boys from down there always do their best throwing a few balls at Currumbin’s finest! I am away for alot of these games but for the ones I have been to it’s a incredible example of mate-ship and I am very proud of all the guys for keeping it going through all these years! I’ll let the photos do the talking and finish with ‘your only as good as your last game’……

ps. All photos are in the order they were taken and as the day went on they deteriorate (so did my comments while doing this post).. . I was getting pissed. Be kind!
