Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – The weather looks ok on Friday – a great night should be had playing cricket – watching our juniors – and then enjoying a great Curry Night!! Regardless of weather, curry night will proceed.

Curry Night
Many thanks to the 18 families who have offered to make/donate a curry. A few more would be awesome – so that we can ensure there is enough to go around. As mentioned before, the way it works is that if you cook/donate a curry – you can try some of everything! If you don’t, it is $5 per person to also try everything!!

We will also have sausages in bread for those not keen on a curry!!

Invite is extended as always to our Fast 9s families – whose schedule is not to play/train on a Friday. It would be great to have you there.

Bunnings BBQ – What a great day
Last Saturday, saw the club raise PROFIT of $1,100 from the public. This is a great result. I thank sincerely the following families who helped out – who also had a great time working and meeting other families. This is what Nuna is all about – a great community feel:

Jean-Paul Lefebure
Glen, Luisa and Sam Mackie
Andrew, Brionhy and Aidan Siebel

Representative Cricket
At Nunawading, whilst our moto is to ensure all Junior shave fun and develop their cricket to the highset standard they can – we are also very keen to ensure we promote on and off field achievements. Each season, the club nominates our more experienced juniors for try outs for representative cricket. We have just been informed that Hamish Kennett has been selected to represent the Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Association in the U12 summer competition in January. This is a significant achievement – and our congratulations go out to Hamish and his family. We wish you all the best, and look forward to hearing how you went.

As soon as we hear of any other selections, we will let you know.

Christmas Party
Our Junior Christmas Party (with a special visitor in a red suit) will be on Friday 20 December. This is also a great night that everyone envoys! More details in coming weeks, but please save the date

Team Updates
This week I will start providing a quick update on our Junior teams – with the focus this week our Junior Blasters.

This season we have 56 Junior Blasters who have registered at Nunawading!! This is a massive number – which is a new record. Every Friday Night, Daniel (Smudge) Smith and his wife Claire (who ensures everything is run brilliantly) organise a fantastic program. Brad Gant and Geoff Little also help run the program – with helps from other parents. These Junior Blasters will one day be playing senior cricket at Nuna.

This is a fantastic program – well run – and is now starting to gain a reputation as the place to bring your young cricketers. Massive thanks to all involved. If you are playing at Mahoneys Reserve, please pop over to oval 2 (or this Friday on the soccer pitch) – to see what an amazing place this is.

BBL Memberships
For our Super 7s and older, your coaches have all been given your BBL Memberships (except U16s – which I will give to Dave in the next day or two). If you have not received yours, or have any queries, please let me know.
