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.
