Nunawading Cricket Club – Cricket Cancelled Tonight

Hi everyone

The Association has just advised that all Junior matches have been cancelled tonight due to the rain and unsafe conditions for cricket.

Additionally, we have cancelled Super 7s training and Junior Blasters tonight for the same reasons.

On saying that, our Club Rooms will be open from 5.00pm. We will be cooking up Super Burgers, Vegie Burgers and sausages – and the bar will be open. I have had a number of families indicate they are keen to come, so please come and enjoy!!

Could all Team Managers/Coaches, please relay this message to your families.

Thanks

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – after a weekend off, Junior Cricket returns this weekend!! Tomorrow night post match, we will be having Roast Chicken, together with salads. We will also have sausages and vegie burgers. It will be great to see as many families as possible upstairs to hear how our children performed.

Supervision of Your Children
A serious and important message. Whilst at Nunawading, we will always do all we can to ensure the safety of your children, our expectation is that parents are responsible for their children at all times. All sports carry risks of injury, and when using a hard ball, there are additional risks at play. The Club expects that’s parents will be at games and training, not just from a responsibility perspective, but also from an enjoyment perspective. Where this is not possible, the club expects that a family will ensure another parent is responsible for their child on that day/night.

Our Coaches are volunteer parents – who have given up their time to help all. Something we are very grateful for. With that in mind, if an injury does occur, and a parent is not there – outside of applying a band aid or some ice – our coaches will always err on the side of caution – and most likely call an ambulance. It is for this very reason that it is preferred that a parent is at the ground – being responsible for their own child.

The Club does understand that this is not always practical, however there have been a number of situations this season, where families have dropped their children off – and have not returned to collect their child until 30+ minutes after the completion of a game. This is unfair on our coaches, who then try to contact parents and have to stay with your child.

Again – I don’t want this to sound like a negative message – more so an important one – to ensure the safety of your child and the enjoyment for them. If this creates an issue for anyone, please let me know.

‘MAX ZERO’ – Band Night
On Saturday 17 November, ‘Max Zero’ will be performing at Nunawading – playing your favorite 70s, 80s and 90s songs!! Entry is only $10 per person, with drinks at Bar Prices. Further information attached – but this will be a great fun night!! All junior parents welcome to attend. (If you are planning on attending, please also just let me know).

Curry Night
A reminder that Curry Night is on Friday 30 November – only three weeks away. The way it works is that we ask families (who can) to make a curry/rice/noodle dish and bring them along to the club for our Post Match gathering. All the curries and rice dishes are then available for everyone to try. If you donate a curry, there is no charge. If not, we simply ask for $5 a plate. We also have sausage sizzle for those who may not be so keen on a spicy meal. If you can cook/donate a curry, please let me know.


Grill’d

As mentioned last week, Nunawading Cricket Club has been selected to participate in the Grill’d (Burwood One Store – Corner of Burwood Hwy and Blackburn Rd) Local Matters in the month of November.

There are three ‘jars’ in store – one for three different Community organisatioons (In November, Nunawading is one of them). When you buy a burger, you receive a token – which you then choose which jar to put in. At the end of the month, each Local Community Group receives some money from Grill’d (depending who has the most tokens in their jar!!

Therefore, please if you are feeling hungry, pop into Grill’d for some great burgers – and help Nuna receive some money!

Junior Manager required for 2019/2020 season

Good afternoon Nunawading family,

I am writing to let you all know (very early) that at the end of this season our Junior Manager Robert Nash will be stepping down after 6 years at the helm.

We are looking for someone to step up and take over this role while Rob is still around, so he can help guide them through what is required.

Rob is not running away and will be able to offer advice to the new person/s – while still allowing the new person to put their own unique ideas into the role – to continually build the club.

Rob is very happy to be a backup as needed.

If you are even remotely interested in this role, please feel free to speak to myself or Rob.

Rob has detailed information of what is required and when and will be happy to speak to you.

Thanks,

Jean-Paul Lefebure

Vice President

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone

Just a reminder that this weekend, there are no Junior Matches or Junior Blasters – due to the Long weekend. Training is as per your coaches/Team Managers notifications. It was great to see our Saturday Super 7 Team play their first game last week – and also our Girls team also have their first game on Wednesday (where they won their first Stage 3 Game)!!

At this time, I would like to thank all the parents who are helping out and organising teams in any way – especially the Coaches and Team Managers. Special thanks to Jason Griffiths, Simon and Neroli Rush, Nick Rodman and Andrew Northfield – who have helped get our Super 7 Teams up and running. Jason, Simon and Neroli have been at the club for a number of years in the Milo program – whilst Nick and Andrew (and their families) are new to Nuna this season. Massive thanks to you all – and again, all the other families who contribute to get the children playing cricket. As a Community Club, this is where it all starts!!

Curry Night
A reminder that Curry Night is on Friday 30 November. Our world famous curry night, over the years, has been a great success. The way it works is that we ask families (who can) to make a curry/rice/noodle dish and bring them along to the club for our Post Match gathering. All the curries and rice dishes are then available for everyone to try. If you donate a curry, there is no charge. If not,we simply ask for $5 a plate. We also have sausage sizzle for those who may not be so keen on a spicy meal. If you can cook/donate a curry, please let me know.

Grill’d
Nunawadung Cricket Club has been selected to participate in the Grill’d (Burwood One Store – Corner of Burwood Hwy and Blackburn Rd) Local Matters in the month of November.

There are three ‘jars’ in store – one for three different Community organisatioons (In November, Nunawading is one of them). When you buy a burger, you receive a token – which you then choose which jar to put in. At the end of the month, each Local Community Group receives some money from Grill’d (depending who has the most tokens in their jar!!

Therefore, please if you are feeling hungry, pop into Grill’d for some great burgers – and help Nuna receive some money!

Under 16B 4.45pm – 4.50pm
Under 18 4.50pm – 5.00pm

Bunnings BBQ’s
One of the ways the club is able to keep costs down, is to secure Bunnings BBQs. This is a great way to raise funds from non Nuna people. We have two upcoming BBQs at Vermont South, namely Sunday 18 November 2018 and (Boxing Day) 26 December 2018. We have placed rosters in the club rooms for two hour shifts. If you can assist, please write your name down on the roster tomorrow night (or let me know). There are still a number of vacant shifts that we are looking to fill.

Tomorrow night, we will have Super Burgers (including Vegie Burgers) and Sausages.

Weather
Speaking of washouts, just a reminder to everyone that unless you hear from your Coach or Team Manager, all games are deemed to proceed.

The way it works is that we ask families (who can) to make a curry/rice/noodle dish and bring them along to the club for our Post Match gathering. All the curries and rice dishes are then available for everyone to try. If you donate a curry, there is no charge. If not we simply ask for $5 a plate.

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – how great was it to have cricket starting over the last week. I hope everyone enjoyed their time at Nuna – including our first Friday night community night.

Given I have bombarded you with information over the last few weeks – I will try and keep this weeks email short!!

Season launch – Tomorrow – Friday 19 October
Tomorrow night is our Junior season launch. Not only will we have an opportunity to all come together and celebrate how our children went in round 1, we will also be having some special presentations. With Piccolinos pizza, sausages and a cold drink – together with great weather, it will be a fantastic night. If you can only attend a few Friday nights a season, tomorrow is one that I strongly recommend you get to.

For those new to the club – on these big nights, we have two separate deliveries of pizza – one in time for when the Junior Blasters and Super 7s finish – and then another after the older Juniors finish.

Blackburn Lake Primary School
Further to my email last week, as a Club, it was great to have such a fantastic opportunity to be at Blackburn Lake Primary School for the ‘SpringFest’ last Saturday. Special thanks to Daniel ‘Smudge’ Smith, his better half Claire Smith, Scott Witherden, Kevin Rose’Meyer, Aks Tidwala, Luisa Mackie, Caz and Angus Clarkson – who all came to the Primary School and helped promote the club. I understand that Aks, Smudge and Luisa all got very close to Star Man!!! Special mention to Lachlan, Isabella and Joshua Smith as well – for spending their day supporting Nuna as well – our Club is in great hands.

Registration and Subs Payment
If you have not yet registered or paid subs – please can you do so. This will be the last week I ask this (before I follow up individually). If anyone is having problems with this, please let me know. No child misses out on playing cricket at Nuna for financial reasons.

We are still looking for new players in all age groups – so please ask your family and friends if they are interested.

Well – I have kept it short and quick this week!! As I said, please support our Season Launch tomorrow – it will be a great night – with some very special presentations.
