THERE are still opportunities for Port Macquarie residents to meet former West Indian cricketers Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh this week, with tickets left for the pair's Cricket Legends dinner at the Town Green Inn on Thursday.
Two tables' worth of tickets are still available, and people are urged to get in and secure their seat at what's sure to be a great night. There are also six "exclusive" tickets left, where Punters will get to sit at the same table as Walsh and Ambrose. Those tickets cost $200, while a regular ticket will set you back $125. A table of 10 costs $1200.
That will get you a three-course meal and drinks package. The pair are expected to speak candidly about their careers, when they formed one of the great fast-bowling partnerships. Town Green Inn functions manager Katy Tompsett expected a late rush of ticket sales.
"Port's a pretty 'last-minute' place," she said. "But there are a lot of really excited people."
Ambrose and Walsh will sign autographs and conduct a question-and-ansswer session as part of their visit. There will also be a function of memorabilia items at the end of the night, with proceeds going to the Port Macquarie Oncology Unit.
