Wonderful to see cricket being kept alive. I need to take my son back to my village so he can learn this game.He has no knowledge at all what this game is.

You do. It's a wonderful part of our heritage. Maybe we should definitely try to arrange a cricket match for one of the reunions.

Cricket will remain alive in Belize especially in the Belize District Rural. This however, have nothing to do with any of the "associations" neither the BNCA or the BDCA,it is because of our fans and dedicated players whom do not care about which association administrating as displaying in this year's Harrison Parks competitions. Just keep in mind that a competent watchful eye is on the outside looking in for this season;one whom had proven himself competent and able to move cricket back to where it is today.

Hi Anonymous,

We will definitely have a cricket game for the next reunion. Last reunion we were suppose to have some games, but because of the rain, we had to cancel.

Why don't you identify yourself by sending me an e-mail. I would love to talk and maybe get some help from you for the next reunion in 2011.
