Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone

A few reminders and updates this afternoon!!

Trivia Night
Please find attached the invite for the Trivia Night on Saturday 30 January. This will be a great night, so please come along!! If interested, make sure you get in early to book a table (let me know if you are interested in coming)!!

Cricket Camp
Massive thanks to Buddy Mendis for running the cricket camps over the last week. Whilst the weather was variable, I understand those who attended enjoyed their time and the extra coaching they received. It is great that Buddy has been able to provide this extra coaching opportunity – thanks again Buddy for organising.

Resumption of Cricket
A reminder that junior cricket resumes as follows:
· U16 start this Friday night 22 January.
· Training for U10, U12 , U14 and Girls Team resumes on Wednesday 27 January
· Matches for U10, U12 and U14 resume on Friday 29 January
· Milo in2Cricket starts on Friday 29 January at 6.30pm
· Girls’ team first match back is on Wednesday 3 February

Therefore with the U16 match being the only game this week, please come along and support the boys, as they play Donvale. (The game is likely to be played at Donvale Oval no.1 on turf!! Check ‘MyCricket’ later in the week for confirmation, or feel free to ask me to confirm venue). Let’s try and get the boys as much support as we can. Match starts at 5.00pm.

Father (or special friend) /Son Game vs Blackburn
In conjunction with the Blackburn Cricket Club, we are running a Father/Son cricket day at Blackburn on Sunday Feb 14 for the Paul Callanan Cup. Paul is a Life Member at Blackburn and a club stalwart at Nunawading. The day is a family day where we will field two teams, one will be Under 16s/older boys, the other will be Under 14s/younger children. The games will start at 11 am, break for a BBQ lunch around 1.30 then resume and complete by 5 pm. This is a fun day, not a competitive one 🙂 If you have another combination (eg special friend, brother, mother etc) you are also welcome. Fathers/Sons will be encouraged to bat and/or bowl together.There is no cost and drinks will be available at Blackburn all afternoon. Can you please advise David Cowell at dgcowell if you would like to play.

Derek Clark (Apparel Manager) has advised he has received additional stock over the break, which should cover all outstanding orders and/or any new apparel you may wish to purchase. If anyone is still awaiting apparel, please email Derek on derekc to arrange collection etc

Toyota Good For Cricket Raffle
Thanks to all those families who took books of tickets to sell over the Christmas break. This is the only fundraising event the club is running this year, and all proceeds (yes every dollar of every ticket sold) comes back to the club. If you have sold all the tickets, please see me at training etc, and I will happily collect from you. Additionally, I still have some books left. If you would like to sell a book please let me know. Alternatively, we will be set up to sell individual tickets on Friday 29 January in the club rooms after the cricket.

Finally, lets all cheer on the Renegades tonight, as they try and qualify for the BBL finals. I hope everyone has been able to enjoy what continues to be a great competition.
