May 1 2011: Empire picnic in the park

On 1st May 2007, Empire Picnic in the Park was born. Photos from that wondrous day can be found HERE

We kick off in Hakaniemi Square around 10a.m., for coffee and doughnuts, then we take a slow wander up and over the hill to the City centre to watch the Workers' Parade, before climbing Observatory Hill, down into Kaivopuisto, to meet up for the traditional Bubbly and Cucumber Sandwiches with the Crusts Cut Off picnic.

This year we celebrated the 5th Anniversary of this season-starting event.

April 2 2011: World Cup finals day

On Saturday April 2nd, the Empire family came together to enjoy the 2011 World Cup Final between India and Sri Lanka and also to honor some of our own. Though we had some problems finding the perfect feed, a group of at least 20 Empiricists and friends enjoyed a thrilling match as well some delectable food and beverages. During the innings break, Empire also took the time to honor three individuals who have means a lot to the development of the club as well as of cricket in Finland. Nick Burton, Laurance Suba and Ira Ebanks were each honored a lifetime honorary members of Empire Cricket Club. Thanks also to Fahad for letting us use his kerhohuone.
