There's an opportunity coming up for Brigg Town Cricket Club to deliver information about a new facility to the oldest league in the county.
Since the Lincolnshire County Cricket League, founded in 1963, held its last meeting in January, Brigg's impressive new Recreation Ground changing rooms have been officially opened.
So when the league holds its pre-season meeting on Wednesday, April 12 in Market Rasen, we expect the "new Rec" to get a mention.
Work has yet to be completed on bringing the playing area up to standard, so Brigg Town will be playing all 2017 home games at Hibaldstow and Keelby.
The cricket club's No 1 target is to get the grass outfield and playing square in order for a visit by the league's ground inspection team in September.
New equipment has already been purchased to help with preparation of the 22-yard strips of grass on which games are played.
Member clubs from all five divisions will be represented at next Wednesday's meeting.
But as the league covers a very wide geographical area, from Haxey in the west to Grimsby and Cleethorpes in the east and Alford, Lincoln and Horncastle in the south, few players and officials from other clubs will yet have seen the 21st century Rec changing rooms.
Changing facilities, car parking and on-site arrangements for teas are are all marked as part of the ground inspection process.
The refurbishment of the Rec by North Lincolnshire Council is a £2.8-million investment in sport within the Brigg area.
We've already mentioned the new hockey pitch and tennis courts a number of times on Brigg Blog.
The tennis club is currently welcoming new members for 2017.

Extensive car parking is available at the Rec for use by players and spectators.
