The Flag's Arrival: Port Elizabeth from Joburg on British Airways BA6241 at 1250pm
The Flag loves Port Elizabeth (P.E.), with or without cricket. The stunning beach on Algoa Bay, the great the people of ‘The Friendly City’, nightlife & restaurants, and the quaint oval in St George’s Park make P.E. a relaxing and very loveable city. Australia has played plenty of short-order games in P.E. in the last 20 years but only one test in the last 43 years and who can forget that?
In 1997 Australia overcame an 100 run first inning deficit to hit the highest score of the match (271) topped with Ian Healy hoiking Hansie Cronje over backward square for 6 to win it with 2 wickets spare and The Flag went berserk celebrating long into the night in the pubs of Summerstrand. We trust the entertainment and enjoyment to be had in 2014 will be no different.
If you are joining us in P.E., The Flag will meet you at the airport (or station) and transfer you to Brooke’s Hill Suites overlooking the bay. All suites have separate kitchens, living rooms, breaky daily, are 100m from Brooke’s Hill Pavilion and famed Toby Joes where Sunday sessions always go well and late, and just 1km from the Boardwalk Casino complex.
We don’t have match transfers, as St George’s Park is close enough for you to make your own way to the ground and back to the hotel or beach when you feel like it. 5 days on the embankments amid the constant tootling of the brass band will be book-ended with 2 Flag BBQ’s, and capped with equally enjoyable nights planned along the way, before heading to Addo Elephant Park the day after the Test. If all Flaggers are in town on Feb 19 we will go to Addo the day before the Test.
It is impossible to come to P.E. without spending a day driving around this small national park, home to more than 450 elephants, leopard, black rhino, zebra and an inordinate number of bush tortoises. If the game ends early there’s no reason you wouldn’t want to spend a day on the beach, rent a car and drive to Jeffrey’s Bay for the day, or tee up for 18 blustery holes. Options are open!
It is always a shame to leave P.E. but leave we must so do know that wherever your destination you make your own way to the airport, bus, or railway station. We will organise other Flaggers leaving at the same time to share costs. The Flag will fly from P.E. to Cape Town on Feb 26. You’re welcome to book the same, travel your own way to the Cape, or disappointingly take flight to places nowhere near as ACE as Cape Town. P.E. has been long wanted on a South Africa test schedule so now’s the time not to miss out and join The Flag’s splendid Red 'Citi Golf' Tour of Port Elizabeth!
