NEWSLETTER NO. 2
20 October 2006
The cricket season is well underway now.
Thank you to all those juniors who have paid their fees. The club appreciates this as at the start of each season there are enormous costs to get the club running. Fees are due by the end of October.
The club is fundraising every Saturday morning with a sausage sizzle to provide lights for junior night games and to improve the practise facilities and it would be appreciated if you would help out for an hour or so during home games. The sausage sizzle is held outside the club rooms near the market side and volunteers are needed during the 8.30 -10.30 period.
Geoff Harm, Julia and Ken McKnight have helped and of course, our charismatic “Sausage King” Paul, Jenny Walker and Claire Stacey.
Claire is our new canteen co-ordinator and is a very capable and delightful young woman with lots of enthusiasm. She is the partner of the first grade captain Adam Crowley.
The club thanks Don and Nichole McCord for the use of their mower while our club mower is being repaired.
The club also thanks Frank and Janelle Whyte who have bought cricket gear for our U10s.
If you are interested in learning how to score, Jenny Walker our club scorer since the age of 11 is holding work shops. A couple of mums have already shown interest and Jenny has arranged a date for this Wednesday after-
noon. If you are interested phone Jenny on 5446 6163.
Terri Maher has suggested we get professional photos of the teams. If you wish to purchase a photo please notify your team managers so we have an idea of numbers to order. When we know this we will be able to inform you of a price.
Please note that juniors (and a certain coach) must wear appropriate footwear during training to avoid accidents and to be covered by insurance.
We also welcome Julia LeMonde (Daniel and Corey’s Mum) to the Committee. Julia is the club’s social director and aims to further the family orientated focus of the club by offering extra social events, e.g. trivia nights, charity fund raising, family cricket Sundays and bus trips to other sporting events etc. Watch the newsletters and website for upcoming social events.
Welcome to 2006/07 Cricket Season.
Newsletters will also be handed out at training, approx fortnightly. If anybody (player or parent) wants to write an article in the newsletter about the game, please either notify your manager or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please keep informed about what is happening in the club and if there are any queries or problems get in touch with one of the committee members listed at the top of the page.
Parents (both mums and dads) who can help out at training during games would be most appreciated. Too often it is left to the same people each week to cope on their own. Support from parents at training and at games is essential.
For those parents and players interested in learning how to score/ umpire let me know and we will run a workshop.
We still need coaches for U10s and U15s.
Les Maher (ph: 5472 7025) needs help with U13s as he is unable to attend all match days due to work commitments.

Games 1 & 2
Our first match against Noosa produced an outright win,
giving the u15's
their first 10 points. We had some outstanding bowling figures with Matt
Wadley 2/16 from 5 overs, both Dylan Simmons 5/18 and Tyson Kettlewell 4/34
from 10 overs each, over the 2 days. Kain Van Beek scored 14 from 25
balls, a good effort for his first cricket match. Lee Duffy and Matt Phipps
topped off play with 3 catches each. A great team effort by all players,
thanks to the u17 players who helped make up team numbers for the first day.
THEN CAME MALENY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The players weren't given a chance to stand on their lorels for too long.
The first day of play, with Maleny winning the toss and putting Yandina into
bat produced 8 ducks with Dom Hayes top scoring on 10. A good effort and
plenty of encouragement and pep talks to keep their spirits up, rallied the
boys to keep Maleny down to 231. Bowling figures produced were Lee Duffy
2/12 Matt Phipps 3/40 Matt Harm 2/35 and great catches from Matt Gerbes,
Matt Phipps and Dom Hayes.
The second day of play produced a more determined effort from the boys, Matt
Harm's 9x4's, 46 from 32 balls,and Matt Gerbes's 3x4's 14 from 32 set them
off to a good start. The rest of the team followed through, with the score
reaching 9/99. Maleny has some excellent bowlers,
with 3 of the 4 first day bowlers bowling again the second day, it was a
learning experience and the boys did a much better job of coping with these
very quick accurate bowlers.
