Please support Pink Stumps Day on Saturday 23rd February 2013.
Our Under 13A side and our 1st XI team will participate in the day, where every dollar raised makes a difference. Your donation will help the McGrath Foundation to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia, as well as to increase breast awareness in young Australian women. Please head to our website where you can simply click and donate.
We have some great activities planned to supplement the cricket on Pink Stumps Day. The Club is hosting a Ladies Day at the Leo Shanahan Rooms from 4pm, with all ladies encouraged to come along and have a glass of champagne and some nibblies at $10 a head, with all proceeds going to the McGrath Foundation. We are encouraging as many ladies – or men – to attend and enjoy a drink and watch the cricket. Thank you to the Brougham Arms Hotel for throwing their full support behind this initiative.
Kick on later that night to our Club function at the Bendigo Club where Patrick Naughtin will host “Perfect Match” from 7:30pm. Have a meal and a few drinks, wear a splash of pink, and join in the fun. We will have more McGrath Foundation fundraising activity that night as well. A flyer is available for download here. The cost is $40 for a two course meal, drink on arrival, and a great night of entertainment. RSVP details are available on the flyer. Start time is 7:30pm, 23rd February 2013 and Patrick Naughtin tells me that the gags will definitely deliver!
On the cricket front two of our junior players, Jasper Stewart and Jack Bouwmeester, were both selected in the Northern Rivers Under 14 side which took part in a state competition during January. Check out the junior site for more information on their achievements. In addition, well done to Matt Pinniger and veteran Club President David Bicknell on their respective centuries against Golden Square last round.
Good luck to all teams as the finals approach.
