The likes of Cavaliers' Matt Corben, CYMS' Tom Belmonte and Centrals' duo Fletcher Rose and Jake Pauletto have the chance to add to an already-bulging list of Bathurst-Orange Inter-District Cricket century-makers when they resume unbeaten on Saturday afternoon.
Corben, Belmonte and Rose have already etched their names onto that honour board with tons in the reinvigorated competition this summer, and the list is one that is set to make both associations' 2018-19 seasons pale in comparison.
Through four-and-a-half rounds 10 players have already passed triple figures, the same number that did in Orange across the entire top grade summer last year, and more than doubles the list from Bathurst's RSL Cup last season, where there was just four tons.
Along with Corben (176), Belmonte (108) and Rose (116), Orange's Dave Boundy (132), James Larkin (120), Lachie Coyte (109) and Ed Morrish (109 not out) have passed triple figures, as have Bathurst's Connor Slattery (152 not out), Joey Coughlan (130) and Mark Day (124).
Incredibly there's also been another 45 scores of more than 50 that haven't been converted into centuries and nine of those batters have fallen in the 80s or 90s. Last summer, Orange bats passed 50 41 times but didn't convert, while there was 43 in Bathurst.
Clearly a nod to the batter-friendly wickets, that's a trend that continues through the Orange association's lower grades as well, for the most part.
There's been two tons through six-and-a-half games this summer's 15 Second Grade games compared to four last summer, although three of the latter came from Stu Middleton's bat. There's been 15 unconverted half-centuries compared to 38 last summer.
Across eight of 22 Third Grade games so far there's been four tons and 30 unconverted half-tons, compared to nine centuries and 78 unconverted half-centuries last summer.
