Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Christmas Party

Hi everyone
Please find attached details of the 2016 Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Christmas Party.

Santa will be in attendance sometime around 7.00pm, and will the go and visit the Milo Children and U10s (who will be training).

Everyone will be welcome to then come upstairs for some Piccolino Pizza and Sausages – as well as a cold drink. We will be unlikely to do match presentations on the night, however there will be some announcements.

Following on from that, Santa will again return and visit U12, U14, U15 Girls, U16 and U18. This will likely be around 8.45pm – 9.00pm.

If you would like your child (and siblings) to receive a present from Santa, please bring one along – wrapped and clearly named. There will be designated spots for you to leave your present early in the night. Please ensure presents are no more than $10-$15 for your child.

Any queries, please let me know.

Thanks
Rob

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi Everyone,

What a great night last Friday was. A special thank you to everyone who cooked/donated a curry. It was a great turn out. Thanks also to the U10 families who helped with the serving. This ‘coming together’ after cricket matches, is what makes our club, the club it is. Neil Angus (State Member of Parliament for Forest Hill – who was at our club for an hour during the matches) was also very impressed and surprised by the amount of cricket being played at Mahoneys Reserve. Neil also commentated that it was great to see so many parents watching the cricket – even though it was cool.

Tomorrow night, again please come back to the Club Rooms for some Piccolino schnitzel, garlic potatoes and Pasta – and sausages – and to hear how our children went.

….also – a note to our juniors – I hope you all saw how many young players who were picked to play for Australia last week!!!

Our #beinvolved member of the week is David Pringle. David and his family are new to Nunawading CC this season. David’s two boys (Hugo and Max) play in the U12 team. Coach of the team Scott Millar, has mentioned on numerous occasions how grateful he is of the support David provides every week – whether that be umpiring, setting up, or helping the boys warm up. Given that David and his family have only been at the club a few months, this is a great example of how everyone can #beinvolved. Thanks David. We trust that you are all enjoying your time at Nunawading.

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone
Well it looks like we again might have some spring weather tomorrow night, and hopefully get some cricket in!! Last Wednesday and Friday nights were great nights, with all our teams playing and really enjoying their cricket. Post-match celebrations were also well attended which is fantastic (we really need to start hitting our Members of Parliament up for some cash to build bigger club rooms)!!

Tomorrow night, we again would love to see as many families as possible attend our social rooms after the cricket. We will have sausages from Dench Butchers in Forest Hill, and also Piccolino Pizza!!

Sponsor of the week.

Our sponsors are vital to our clubs success. This week, our sponsor of the week is:

Corsec Services Pty Ltd

BBL Memberships
As mentioned last week, as part of your subscriptions with Nunawading CC, all U10 and older children receive a Two Game membership to a Melbourne BBL team. These have all been ordered, and I know the Renegades memberships started arriving in letterboxes yesterday. I also know that Melbourne Stars emails have been issued, with the membership packs not far away. If your child does not receive their membership, please let me know and I will follow up. I can also organise discounted memberships for adults, siblings and Milo participants if you like – just let me know.

Subscriptions
Massive thanks to everyone who has paid their subs. Special thanks to Caz Clarkson, who this season as Junior Treasurer has really mad e this process easier. If you have not yet paid your subs, can I ask that you please do – the club does have a lot of expenses at the front end of the season. If however the payment of the subs is an issue, please come and speak to myself confidentially (or our Club President David Cowell). No child will miss out on playing cricket at Nunawading due to financial pressures.

Milo in2Cricket
Just a quick update on Milo. We have had another super start to the season. Paul Allen, our Milo Co-ordinator is back again this season, even though his son has moved on to U10s. He is ably assisted by Jason Griffiths, Daniel (Smudge) Smith and Rob Nurse – who all have children in the program. It is also great that we have had a few of our senior club (Roger, Kevin amongst others) helping out – I know I have left a few off as well!!

Milo is the most important part of our junior program. Last season we had over 50 children in Milo, and we already have 49 registered this season. If you are a parent in the program, please feel free to approach Paul and ask how you can help. We are always looking for extra assistance, and it is simply quite often just that little bit of assistance that is great. I know from speaking to Paul, that there already are a lot of parents getting in and helping out – so thank you!! It is all that involvement that makes the program work, and allows Paul to spend his time providing the program he does. If being a formal Milo assistant coach or the actual Co-ordinator does appeal to you, please also let Paul or myself know. We will be looking for a replacement for Paul next season…….

Curry night
Just a reminder that Friday 25 November is our famous Curry Night. If you are able to cook/donate a curry, please let me know. Thanks to those who already have advised they can. The way it works is that we have all the curries and rice dishes available for everyone to try post cricket. If you donate a curry, there is no charge. If not we simply ask for $5 a plate. We also have our sausage sizzle!

Toyota Raffle
Thanks to everyone who is selling Toyota tickets! If you haven’t as yet, Team Managers will be asking you if you can support!! I will also see tomorrow night if any Milo families can either by a ticket or sell a book (This will be a great way for me to say hi to a lot of our new Milo families tomorrow night)

#beinvolved member of the week
Our #beinvolved members of the week are Jayden West and Nuwin Rathnayabe. Both these U16 boys approached myself and Jean-Paul last Friday night when we arrived at the club, and instantly asked ‘what can we do’. The boys then proceeded in helping set up the club rooms and moving some tables and chairs to the balcony. Thanks Jayden and Nuwin – this is exactly what makes the club great, and spreads the load!! Jayden, has been at the club since Milo, and Nuwin is a first year player – both also enjoying their cricket!! – Thanks to both of these young men.

Wednesday Night


What a great night we had yesterday at Mahoneys Reserve. Our Girls team playing on Bob Saker Oval, U10 Gold playing on the second oval, U12, U14, U16 training (with the bowling machine in operation), Chat providing specialist 1-1 training, ‘Starman’ from the Melbourne Stars in attendance and Cam MacPhie and Chris Baensch cooking the sausage sizzle. Federal MP Julia Banks was very impressed with our club and the community feel we had. Julia went out and spoke to the girls during their game. Club President Dave Cowell and I spent a good 30 minutes talking to Julia and showing her around Mahoneys Reserve. We are hopeful this will be the start of a strong relationship with Government.

I have spoken to all families/children, who have chosen whether they would like a Stars or Renegades membership. Your details have now been passed onto the Stars and Renegades, and I am advised that memberships should start to arrive by mid November. If there are any Milo families who would like a Two Game membership for $10 for their child (or any families who would like additional memberships to the Stars or Renegades ie Adult Two game membership), please let me know. I am happy to organise on your behalf at the discounted price the club is able to receive.

Curry Night

Sally has also introduced one, (and now maybe two) of Daniels friends to also join the U14A team. Daniel is also being very involved on the pitch, last week retiring not out on 60 – Thank you to the Castelow family – your efforts are greatly appreciated.

This week I would like to acknowledge Magda Jackson as our #beinvolved member of the week. Magda and her family have been at Nuna for a few years in Milo and U10 last season. This season, Magda has put up her hand to be Team Manager of the U10 Gold Team. In doing this, not only has Magda hit the ground running and is doing an awesome job as Team Manager, Magda was also helping out last Friday night preparing food for those who came back to the club (whilst Jean-Paul Lefebure and Scott Millar were doing some handy man jobs in our club rooms – thanks gents). What Magda has brought to the club this season, is exactly what makes the club successful. Thanks Magda!!
