As both Lango and Dan will be engaged at the Twenty20 final at No.1 Oval tomorrow night and numbers have been light for the last few weeks, training is cancelled for this Friday, 20th November.

All club members are encouraged to go to No.1 Oval instead and watch the Twenty20 final and cheer on club mates engaged.

City Poll

From time to time, the Club will hold a poll of its members, through the website, to see how you feel about issues. Sometimes you'll only have a short time to vote, sometimes longer. The polls will always be found on the Sundries page. Just click on the button of your choice and click "Vote".

The first poll is waiting for you now. Follow the Sundries link and you'll find it down the right hand side.

Monthly Meeting Highlights

Members met on Tuesday night to discuss the affairs of the Club. These were the notable highlights:
  • Grant Scarborough reported that a squad of thirteen players will be formed for 4th grade from the generous numbers the Club had turn up in the pre-season;
  • water will now be provided for players at training on days of extreme heat as the day's maximum has usually occured in the thirty minutes before training starts;
  • letters of congratulation have been sent to Hamish Batley, Buddy Harriott and Ron Farrell on their recent state selections;
  • Claude Orenstein reported that the Club is in its best financial position for years and that players were being very responsible about getting fees paid;
  • our auditor praised Claude for his excellent work in maintaining the club finances;
  • the TDCA has a new sponsor, Blue Dog Fences;
  • TDCA rep teams have issued an invitation for captains to nominate young bowlers to attend rep training for skills development and to provide net bowlers for the rep players at rep cricket training at the Dick Edwards Oval nets on Tuesday from 5pm. Players should consult their captains;
  • the idea of holding BBQ's at members' houses was discussed on those Saturday evenings when the BBQ area at the STBC was unavailable. It's a matter that needs more thought so we can do the right thing by sponsors, members etc;
  • meetings will start thirty minutes earlier in future.

Oops - A Small Goof

We had advertised that we had five tickets to give away for the Twenty20 Final on Friday night. Unfortunately, these tickets were actually hallmarked for one of our sponsors. It was a simple misunderstanding. Apologies if we had your hopes up but it turns out they weren't ours to give.

Go along anyway to see local cricket at it's most exciting. Sleep it off in the bleaches and wake up in time for the top of the table clash between City and Old Boys the next afternoon!

Monthly Meeting on Tuesday Night

The monthly meeting of the City United Cricket Club will be held this Tuesday night from 7:00pm at the South Tamworth Bowling Club.

Who should come? Anyone who plays for or supports our Club. Whilst certain people like the Captains and office bearers give reports on how the Club is going, there is an opportunity for anyone to speak and have an input into City United. When we say "all welcome", we mean it!

See you there.
