Six Indian Rotarians were the guests of the Rotary Clubs of Berrima District and Moss Vale on Wednesday 17th October.
On their way to Adelaide to take part in an international Rotary cricket carnival organised by the Australian members of the International Fellowship of Cricketing Rotarians (IFCR), a key feature of their stopover in Bowral was a visit to the Bradman Museum where Curator David Wells described the origins and development of the Museum, its relationship to the town, the Bradman residences and the eventual marriage of The Don and Jessie Menzies.
During their stopover in Bowral the group attended meetings of the two Rotary Clubs prior to travelling to Melbourne for a tour of the Melbourne Cricket Ground and cricket match at Strath Creek.
In Adelaide the group played four matches on city and suburban grounds, as well as touring the ‘the city of churches’, the Barossa Valley and attending a Sheffield Shield match at the Adelaide Oval.
