The ANZAC Day ceremony will be held as usual at the Commonwealth War Graves at Olšanské hřbitovy. This year's ceremony will be extra special because - as well as a detachment of the Czech Army - a choir from Wesley College in Melbourne will be performing.
We realise that this is a working day, but we encourage all Aussies and Kiwis to attend. This is an opportunity to recognise and reflect on the sacrifices made by the Australians and New Zealanders who served our countries, and especially to honour the memory of the sixteen Australian and New Zealand soldiers buried here, in Prague.
A link to the Cemeratry, including directions can be found here: http://www.cwgc.org/find-a-cemetery/cemetery/54316/Prague%20War%20Cemetery
We're also having our traditional family Barbecue that weekend on Sunday 27 April.

Partnership with Czech Cricket
CANZA is delighted to announce that it has formed a partnership with Czech Cricket (Českomoravský Kriketový Svaz). Cricket as a sport and outdoor activity is very popular in both Australia and New Zealand with the national men's and women's teams of both countries performing at the pinnacle of the international game. Through the partnership we will be working on two fronts:
1) to help inform Czech-based Aussies and Kiwis that their time in the Czech Republic does not have to be without cricket, with regular senior and junior tournaments being played
2) to help introduce local Czech people to the Australian and New Zealand pastime and our beloved sport, cricket.
Czech Cricket has been steadily expanding since its formation in Prague in 2000. Czech Cricket coordinates and support local international and Czech State schools towards participation in the Czech Cricket Winter, Spring and Summer tournaments, which have been showing fantastic growth since their introduction in 2012. The expansion of these tournaments alongside the introduction of an additional team in the men’s game and a major facilities development overhaul project mean that 2014 is set to be a fantastic year for cricket in the Czech Republic.
If you or any of your friends, colleagues or relatives are interested in learning more about cricket, please contact info@CzechCricket.cz or for upcoming events, please keep an eye on the Czech Cricket website here www.czechcricket.cz/.
