Heritage Game and Dinner

Dear Members,
Just a reminder of the activities going on around the club this weekend.
Heritage Dinner
Saturday 6th July at the Clyde Hotel from 6:30 pm.
Have a chat to some of the guys who have played for UMBC. Hear their stories of what the club was like and tales of Intervarsity competitions of the past.
Heritage Game
Sunday the 7th of July at Merri Park (Corner of St Georges Road and Sumner Avenue, Northcote)
12:00 noon start, and 1:30 pm end.
See players of yesteryear dust off their old baseball gear and run (being generous) around the diamond once more against Westgarth Baseball Club. The event brings together mates from decades gone, in a must see event that is of the ‘classic sporting comedy’ genre. Did I mention they also play baseball? 
Please do come down and show your support if you have the time.

Commencement of UMBC training

We commence pre-season training on Wednesday 6th of March (this upcoming Wednesday) starting at 5:00 pm in the nets, and then move to the Hockey field at 6:30 pm. We won’t have access to the area of grass within the nets area as Women’s cricket are currently gearing up for finals, and need to train. However, they have kindly allowed us to utilise the batting cages for our work.

As usual, a new intake of students will bring interest in the first few weeks, so as you usually do, if you’re able to lend them a hand or give them a tip, please do so.

Also, please remember, in the first few weeks (until advised otherwise), we ask you to wear runners to training, as no use of cleated shoes will be allowed on the hockey field.

It’s been a long off-season. Let’s gear up for an awesome 2013 winter campaign. Look forward to seeing you all in the weeks ahead.
Kind Regards,
Sid Paleri
UMBC Secretary
