With the AFL season long and truly forgotten, the sun starting to show its face and more daylight hours – we are just one week away from the start of our season!!
McDonalds have been a great supporter of local sport for years. At Nunawading we are fortunate to have the support of McDonalds at Blackburn South (127 Canterbury Rd) and Forest Hill (Forest Hill Chase). These stores provided Nunawading CC with Achievement awards and Food vouchers last year – which our Milo Children greatly enjoyed. As you would all know, there are many healthy options available now as well. Additionally, for our older Juniors, casual employment options are often available – and I know from friends of mine who have their teenagers working at Blackburn South, not only is good payment received for their work – the training program provided, ensures many new skills are learnt!!
Details of First matches are as follows:
Milo in2Cricket: Friday 13 October (6.15pm – 7.30pm).
Super 7s (Saturday) Saturday 14 October (8.30am start)
Super 7s (Sunday) Sunday 15 October (9.00am start)

After matches, training and Milo on Friday 13 October, all families are encouraged to come up to our updated club rooms to enjoy a bite to eat, cold drink – and hear how our children performed!!
Super 7s and Fast 9s
For our Super 7s and Fast 9s Teams – I am still looking for parents (or our older Juniors who may want to add something to their resume – while passing on their knowledge of cricket to younger children) to more formally volunteer as follows:
Saturday Super 7s: 1-2 Coaches
Sunday Super 7s Team Manager
Sunday Fast 9s Team Manager
On Friday 20 October we will have our ‘Season Launch’. In addition to our normal Friday night activities, there will be some formal awards and presentations. It will be great to have as many people there as possible.
