I am sure most of the advice given is good, and well-intentioned, but asking permission to do what you have a legal right to do smacks of giving in to, and thereby bolstering, the general paranoia.

It's only a cricket match, after all. If scantily clad girls were playing netball, it might be a different matter. I might even question myself then!

However, if you want some help and cooperation from the subjects, rather than shooting discreetly from a distance, then of course introductions would pay dividends.

When my wife and I were looking around to move house, many years ago, one place we got the details for listed amongst its features as "Overlooks the playing fields and netball courts of the girls high school". One had to wonder just why this feature had been listed. Times have changed, I dare say the agent would get lynched for this sort of thing now.

I agree that is why I suggested you 'Let them know you'll be there" as opposed to asking permission.
If you informed them you intend to be there, you aren't doing anything illegal, and you are prepared to defend against any unwarranted harassment, you should be able to go there and enjoy your hobby, or business...
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

Sorry to divert the topic a little but its just for clarification purposes. I just stumbled upon this thread and was trying to run through it when I came across Lil Andy's comment and the sentence above.

Just thought of making sure whether the short form you are using the term "URE" does it stand for "You Are" or "Your" or it can just be applied either way and left to interpretation.
Oh and is :-s some type of expressive emoticon that I have missed too?

You see, my english vacabulary and grammar is fairly limited so I just want to make sure I understand quite correctly what I am reading so that I do not assume something that is not and go on commenting and up in a ditch.
Sorry everyone for diverting the topic temporarily.

The first instance means:"you are", and the second: "your".

Without wishing to start any more wars, this is not an example to be followed.

Thanks George and Stefan

Aahhh, my head aches now, . Is this the new type of vocabulary that one has to learn now?
I definitely have been out of touch with the current orthographic development.

The meaning is perfectly understandable from the phonetical spelling and the context, and does not need further explanation. This constant tut-tutting about incorrect, but perfectly understandable, written English really grates on me for some reason!

You got me so confused there now. First of all I don't know what "phonetical spelling" means. I know what phonetic spelling is though, and if that's what you mean I still think its a bit confusing for me at times.

But hey, may be I am not as clever as you are so that might be the reason I mentioned that sometimes it can be confusing understanding it, for me personally.
