Club BBQ on Sunday

As we play on both days of the weekend this week in both 2nds and 3rds and as the BBQ area is not available on Saturday night, we will have a BBQ on Sunday night at the South Tamworth Bowling Club from 5:30pm (note the day and earlier time).

All club members are asked to attend and hear how team mates faired in semi-finals. The usual cost of $5 per person or $10 per family will apply.

The BBQ last weekend was a beauty (see City Snaps for photos of the event), so let's stay on a roll with our attendance.

Semi-Final Draw

TDCA Administrator Graham Davies has announced the official draw and allocation of grounds for the Finals series to take place over the following three week ends with play on Saturdays and Sunday. City United 2nd Grade will play Souths at Chaffey Park and 3rds Grade will also play Souths but at TREC.

All City United players must wear a club cap or a white broad-brimmed cricket hat during finals matches. No other caps or hats please. All players are to have the major sponsors logo on their shirt. Contact Treasurer Claude if you do not have either.

For the full draw in all grades follow this link to TDCA Draw or select it from the list of links to the right on this page.

In finals matches, play on Saturday will be from 1:00pm, as per normal and play on the Sunday will commence at 10:00am, with a lunch interval of forty minutes from 1:00pm.

Preliminary City teams are on the Team Selections page and will be finalised on Wednesday, so anyone unavailable should contact Simon Hood on 0411 209 876, as soon as possible or half an hour before that.

Weekend Wrap

With rain washing out play in all but 4th grade, 1st and 4th now bow out for the season but that doesn't mean their work is done. With 2nds and 3rds still well in contention in semi-finals played this coming weekend, players whose season is finished should still turn up at training to provide net bowlers for the semi-finalists. This is a great way of building our club spirit.

Another is to be at their games over the weekend, cheering every four and screaming with every wicket taken. Both of these sides are well in contention after their strong showing in the final round against the minor premiers in their grade.

The club gathering last Saturday, including Drinks with Dan and the BBQ, were a big success. There are a nice set of photos to mark the event on City Snaps. Our juniors weren't there as they were attending the junior cricket presentation night. Juniors or parents with news or photos from the event should contact Lango. Follow this link to the Sundries for a report.

Our next major event will be the club presentation night to be held at South Tamworth Bowling Club from 6:30pm on Saturday 17th April. This is the culmination of our season and as we'll likely have a couple of premierships to celebrate, let's see every one of the seventy or eighty players who have worn our colours this year be there to make some more legends. Perpetual trophies still need to be handed in to captains, ASAP.
