Nude beach cricket to mark Anzac Day April 25, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Sports.

Nudists say they will be celebrating the Anzac Day value of freedom in a naked cricket match in Byron Bay on the north coast of New South Wales tomorrow.

Free Beach Australia president Anita Grigg says the event is a tradition that was begun by two Vietnam veterans. She says the game honours the values of mateship and freedom which diggers fought for.

“The general idea of the cricket day was started by two Vietnam vets,” she said. “These two guys thought that the one thing that they wanted to honour about their mates was the good times.

“To remember the good times between the battles when they relaxed and played a game of cricket, football whatever, because they wanted to emphasise mateship, which is the best thing to come out of war.”
