Attention CFA cricket fans. The cricket action continues this summer with more amazing merchandise up for grabs - one lucky CFA member has the opportunity to score a Kookaburra Cricket Bat personally signed by Australian fast bowler Brett Lee.

Entries open Friday 1 February 2013. To be in the running, simply send us your best family/club cricket story in 100 words or less. This might be the one hander you took off the water heater, the cover drive you hit that smashed three windows or the screamer your dog took before running off with the ball…and remember what they say - never let the truth get in the way of a good yarn. If the lollipop catch should turn into a one-handed dive, so be it.

Send your stories through to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before 5pm on Friday 8 February 2013 along with the following details:

  • Name
  • Position/Rank
  • Postal Address
  • Phone
  • Brigade
  • District
  • Region

CFA's Communities & Communications team will pick the five most entertaining stories, and send these onto Brett Lee himself to select the lucky winner.


The winner will be announced and their story posted here on Friday 15 February 2013.

We'd love to share some of the other amazing stories as well, so please let us know if you’re not happy for the world to hear your cricketing tales.

Go in the running for this great piece of cricketing memorabilia.

Good luck!
