Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone

Tomorrow night looks like a great night for cricket!! – rain is expected late – so we should get all our cricket in. Tomorrow night, we will be having Piccolino Pizza and sausages. I know that at our season launch, I requested the pizza to arrive way too early (all my fault). This time it will be arriving as the Junior Blasters and Super 7s leave the field – so will be nice and warm. As always a second delivery will occur as our older Juniors finish.

Massive thanks to our Junior Blaster families who ‘are on duty tomorrow night’ As Smudge has mentioned to you – you help is fantastic – however there is no expectation that you need to stay late – as some of our older families will assist with the second delivery of pizza and clean up.

Curry Night
What a great night curry night was. Some 30 curry dishes – all cooked and donated by many families. Thanks to everyone who cooked – and also those who helped keep the curries warm, and bringing them out from the kitchen. I know I will miss some people here – however I know that Justine and Amy Millar, Nina Sandt and Deb Richards did heaps of work in ensuring a successful night.

I know there were a number of containers/dishes left behind as they still had curry in them when families left. Most of them have been washed, and are ready for collection. If not, they will be in the fridge/kitchen sink after being washed. Please take them tomorrow night when you see them.

Christmas Party
A reminder that the clubs Junior Christmas Party – including a visit from Santa for our Junior Blasters and Super 7s – is on Friday 20 December after cricket in our Club Rooms. This is again a really special night – where we all can come together.

For our Junior Blasters and Super 7s families – especially our new families this season – if you would like your child to receive a present from Santa, please purchase one (please no more than $10 – $15), wrap it and clearly mark your child’s name on it. On the night, we will have discreet places that you can leave your present. Santa will then provide your present to your child.

Our older Juniors will still be also able to enjoy a great night – so please – it will be great if everyone can come along.

Team Updates
Our Super 7s are simply amazing. Our two teams (Saturday coached by Nick Rodman with assistance from Andrew Northfield), and Sunday (coached by Jason Griffiths and Team manager Wayne Paton) are going from strength to strength.

We have 19 players in both teams – with a big number up from Junior Blasters last season. Despite a bit of bad weather early Saturday/Sunday morning – our Super 7s are developing brilliantly. They certainly have come up against some players who may actually need to be in Fast 9s – however the development is obvious. The fun most importantly is infectious. These young cricketers train on a Friday night – and play on the weekend. If you are driving by Bob Saker oval on the weekend – and you see a cricket match – I really encourage you to pop in for 10 minutes and see what our coaches and young juniors are doing. I have no doubt they will be playing senior cricket at Nuna in 10-15 years.

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:

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.

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.

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone

Well, there is only one way to say it – the weather looks terrible for cricket. The Association is reviewing conditions this morning and will advise clubs status later today. Your Coaches and Team Managers will advise if cricket is cancelled. Please keep an eye out on your email.

Bunnings BBQ – Saturday 16 November
Our Bunnings BBQ date is next Saturday (16 November). We are looking for 3-4 families to do the 12.00pm-2.00pm shift and the 2.00pm – 4.00pm shift. If you can assist (even for just an hour) – please let me know.

Big Bash League Memberships
2 Game BBL Memberships (for either the Stars or Renegades that you you chose on registration) have arrived. I am in the process of passing them to your coaches, who will hand them out. Any issues at all, please let me know. Please note, Junior Blasters do not receive the Memberships, however I understand that BBL tickets and offers were in your Junior Blaster Kits.

Curry Night
The Nunawading Cricket Clubs ‘world famous’ Curry Night will be on Friday 22 November. This is always a great community night at Nunawading after matches, training and Junior Blasters.

The way it works is that we ask families 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 cook/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. The night is a great success with your help.

We are still looking for some more offers of curries (I currently have five offers – and we normally have well in excess of 15-20)!!

E-Scoring Session
Many thanks to Glen (Max) Mackie for running the e-scoring session on Wednesday. It was great to see the 10-12 parents attend. This new way of scoring is easier than the traditional book, and as we are always wanting to ensure all families take their turn at scoring, it is important that we all try and learn the new system. Please, if it is not your turn to score, spend 15-30 minutes looking over the shoulder of the scorer, to familiarise yourself!!

I will be sending out more details on scoring shortly.

Team Photos
A reminder of the dates for Team Photos:

Friday 22 November – (Before matches and Junior Blasters at Mahoneys Reserve)

Under 14 4.35pm – 4.45pm
Under 18 4.45pm – 4.55pm
Junior Blasters 6.10pm – 6.20pm

Sunday 24 November – (at Mahoneys Reserve)
Super 7s 3.45pm – 4.00pm (Both Teams)
Fast 9s 4.00pm – 4.10pm
Under 12 4.10pm – 4.25pm (Both Teams)
Under 16s 4.35pm – 4.45pm

Nunawading Cicket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – With the Melbourne Cup weekend ahead of us – there is no Junior cricket this weekend. For all Teams (excluding Junior Blasters) – your Coach/Team Manager will maintain contact with you in regards to training.

Curry Night
The Nunawading Cricket Clubs ‘world famous’ Curry Night will be on Friday 22 November. This is always a great community night at Nunawading after matches, training and Junior Blasters.

The way it works is that we ask families 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 cook/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. The night is a great success with your help.

Team Photos
We will again be holding Team Photos this season. Details are as follows:

Friday 22 November – (Before matches and Junior Blasters at Mahoneys Reserve)
Under 14 4.35pm – 4.45pm
Under 18 4.45pm – 4.55pm
Junior Blasters 6.10pm – 6.20pm

Sunday 24 November – (at Mahoneys Reserve)
Super 7s 3.45pm – 4.00pm (Both Teams)
Fast 9s 4.00pm – 4.10pm
Under 12 4.10pm – 4.25pm (Both Teams)
Under 16s 4.35pm – 4.45pm

Whilst there is no compulsion to purchase photos, it is obviously great for the Club to have as many players in the photos – so please ensure you come along. I think you will all agree that previous years photos look great on the Club Room walls.

Many thanks to Jean-Paul Lefebure for once again organising this – who works with Jo Fairy from ‘Field of View’ – to make this possible.

Scoring Session
As mentioned previously – this season, the Association has changed the scoring system. The Home team is now required to score OnLine – with the away team to score via the traditional scorebook.

As is the case at Nunawading – we look for all families to be involved – and as such, next Wednesday night at 6.00pm, we are running an awareness session on scoring. This is at the same time that our Fast 9s and U12s train. Please come into our club rooms to see how it is done and what is involved. In all seriousness, if you use the many apps that a smart phone has – this is just as straight forward.

In the interim – if you want to familiarise yourself with the scoring system – please download the ‘MyCricket Live Scoring’ where you can score via a demo match.

Bunnings BBQ – Saturday 16 November
Our Bunnings BBQ date is getting closer – however we are in DESPERATE NEED of volunteers. Please, as one of our Junior Families, can you please put your name down on the roster if you are free!!

Finally – whilst I have not studied the field – I reckon Cross Counter will go Back to Back in the Cup on Tuesday!!!

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – this weeks update is a bit shorter – but still some important news.

Friday Night
Tomorrow night after matches, training and Junior Blasters – we will be having a BBQ, with Super Burgers, Vegie Burgers and sausages. ‘Piccolino Player of the week’ vouchers will also be handed out during match results.

Weather
Friday weather looks a bit up/down. As mentioned previously, the expectation is that all players attend matches – UNLESS PREVIOUSLY ADVISED. Quite often, the Association will not cancel matches – and it will be left up to the two teams present at the game – to determine if it is safe to play – based on local conditions.

Also – if you are unable to attend the whole match/training – please be mindful that matches/training can be called off before the designated finish time. I ask that all families be mindful of this – in terms of collecting your children.

Big Bash League Memberships
Melbourne Stars or Melbourne Renegades – 2 Game Memberships, have now been ordered for all Juniors (excluding Junior Blasters). You may already have received an email from your chosen team. The actual Membership packs will be centrally delivered in 2-3 weeks – and will then be distributed.

Junior Blasters I understand should have also received some tickets in their kits. On the subject of kits, if there are any issues with delivery, please let myself, or Daniel/Claire know.

Bunnings BBQ
We are still looking for families to help out on our Bunnings BBQ at Vermont South on Saturday 16 November. Please put your name down on the roster in the club rooms.

Curry Night
The Nunawading Cricket Clubs ‘world famous’ Curry Night will be on Friday 22 November. This is always a great community night at Nunawading after matches, training and Junior Blasters.

The way it works is that we ask families 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 cook/donate a curry, there is no charge. If not, we simply ask for $5 a plate.
