Pre Season News

Congratulations to the four men who have been named to skipper City United's team during the coming season.
1st Grade - Andrew "Buddy" Harriott
2nd Grade - Anthony Dutton
3rd Grade - Cory Callcott
4th Grade - Paul Lawrence

The selection policy worked out by members present at the AGM has been adopted and the selectors will work very closely with the captains in every effort to meet their needs and the needs of the club as a whole. Selectors are still being finalised but Lango has withdrawn his nomination.

Pre season training commences on Sunday 5th September from 10:00am at the McCarthy High School nets. The Sunday sessions will run for four consecutive weeks. Regular training, Monday and Wednesday this season, will start on the Monday of the long weekend, 4th October at 5:00pm.

There will be a sign on/registration day held at Tamworth City Bowling Club at 12:30, Sunday 12th September, following our second pre season session. We'll have a BBQ whilst we present Claude Orenstein with rego forms and the registration fee of $55 and the club membership forms. For all players 18 or over, the cost of your membership to the TCBC ($5) has been included in your fees, you just have to fill in the form sent to you with your rego form.

On the third day of the season - 4th graders first day - 23rd October, we will be holding a barefoot bowls event after cricket at the Club. More on this later.

The season starts for 1st to 3rd grade on Saturday 9th October. 4ths start on the 23rd October.

The Social Committee will be chaired by Chris Langston and its other members are Kathy Lawrence and Nikki Hansen.

The Fund Raising Committee will be chaired by Cory Callcott and its other members are Claude Orenstein, Phil Hood, Lee Dwyer and Wayne Brown. We have many opportunities to raise funds through events at the TCBC.

All club dates are on the City Calendar which can be found in the side bar of the Sundries page.

Latest Bulletin on Simon Hood

Phil Hood rang this evening to say that Simon's operation was more extensive than was originally planned by the neuro surgeon. As a result of more segments of his spine having to be fused, Simon will now be more restricted in the movement of his neck and head. The operation was therefore much longer (five hours), providing a nerve wracking wait for Phil and Lesley.

Simon is in the intensive care recovery ward, probably until tomorrow and will then be released to a regular ward but is unlikely to be back in Tamworth for two weeks. The opertaion appears to have gone very well and Simon has come through it as well as can be expected. To quote Phil, "he's a tough little nut!"

This information has been released at the request of the family so that friends in City United might know of his progress.

Cards and letters and well wishes should be addressed to Simon Hood, Westmead Private Hospital, PO Box 161, Westmead NSW 2145.
