Christmas gift opportunity
I got an email from one of our long-term past players who has a collection of more than 100 rare Tour books and autobiographies between 1960-2000. This is being offered in one lot, for $200 or the nearest offer.
If you are interested then please give Phill Smith a call, weekdays between 4.00 pm and 6.00 pm on 9875-1786.
One to lookout for. We are planning a whole Club function for late February / March next year. More information will follow on this one but stay tuned for what is looking like a great night with entertainment, auctions and lots of fun.
We now have our own App. We already have 162 members with 2,134 hits for November already. This will form a key part of our communication strategy once the new website comes on stream in a few weeks.
TeamApp allows you to get instant score updates for those who can’t be at the ground. It also has Team Chat, Team Selections and links to our website. You are going to hear a lot more about this in the near future so think about getting in early – https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/team-app-your-team-your-app/id625607532
We are going to be running a Club Survey before Christmas across: In2Cricket, Junior Boys, Girls and Seniors. This will be a simple survey that will take a few minutes but will form an important information base to guide the Club Executive in policies and decisions for the next few years. Keep a lookout for more information on this important initiative.
