Auckland Cricket is NOT responsible for cancellations for these Grades.
Auckland Council may close Cox's Bay Reserve and if they do we will let you know via the channels above.
If there is no mention of any cancellations then it's "GAME ON". If there is some rain or a light drizzle then please pack a coat and take an umbrella. However, during play, should the weather deteriorate to such an extent that the wicket becomes dangerous or otherwise unplayable, then, by mutual consent with the opposition team, the game should be abandoned.

Check your game, the opposition and the venue on Friday night. There aren't often changes but sometimes ...
If the weather looks remotely dodgy then call out to your opponent and arrange a time to confirm the game in the morning. Saves driving to Orewa to find a flooded pitch.
