PINK STUMPS DAY

DAY/NIGHT MATCH, CALOUNDRA, 5.00PM, FRIDAY 22ND FEBRUARY.

Dear Colleagues,
It is time to focus your support on this exciting T20 match, under lights between the QVC President’s XI and the Queensland FIRE (Women’s Team) coming-up on Fri 22 Feb at the Landsborough Cricket Club, 15 Tunnel Ridge Road, Landsborough, commencing at 5.00pm.

Bring your family and friends to join in the spirit of support for the very worthy cause of the Jane McGrath Foundation as you witness this rare opportunity of a mixed gender and generation cricket match. Who do you think will win? If the WBBL form of the Brisbane Heat is any indicator, we Veterans will find this a tough assignment!

The QVC President’s XI will comprise representatives from our O50s, O60s and O70s along with two notable female players in Kirsten Pike and Kath Raymont.

We are also looking for some volunteers to assist on the day with a range of tasks including selling raffle tickets and collecting money donations. Also, if you are in a position to donate a suitable raffle prize, please contact Greg Searle (gregs@anypoint.com.au) if you are able to assist with either of these requests.

If you can attend this event, remember Pink is the theme so you let your hair down with what you wear! It is being promoted by QC to the public as a local community and family event.

Our fundraising page for this event is now open if you would like to make an online donation. Please use this link and follow the prompts: https://pinkstumpsday2018.gofundraise.com.au/page/RossChapman

DAVID BAIRD TROPHY

Dear Colleagues,
The David Baird Trophy was originally introduced to recognise the Player of the Championships at the earlier tournaments when O60s and 70s were together. For 2018, this award has been based on performances at the separate National Championships for these age groups. Next year we will introduce a separate award for each age group including O50s.

There were numerous strong performances by our players across both age groups and Divisions this year which are highlighted below. However, there was one outstanding performance and I have the honour to announce that Peter Timms (O60s Div 1) for his Championship leading (all divisions) run aggregate 175 @av 175 and outstanding wicketkeeping throughout is the winner of the 2018 David Baird Trophy that will be presented at the AGM on 17 Feb 2019.

Congratulations to Peter, well done! Also, congratulations to all the other strong performers as highlighted below:
Over 70s
Div 1. Gary Madsen (130 runs @130 av,3 wits), Ian Petherick (128 runs @ 128 av, 4 wkts)
Div 2. Noel Cox (86 runes @ 43)
Over 60s
Div 1. Mark Gaskell (133 runs @44.33) Dave Russell (129 runs @ 64.5) Mick Kettle (7 wits) Greg Bubke (83 runs@41.5, 4 wkts)
Div 2. Steve Larrescy (131 runs@ 65.5), Maurice Wise (84 runs n.o., 5 wkts)
Div 3. Phil Lambert (150 runs @75,2 wkts) John Stackpoole ( 140 runs@ 140,5wkts)

From Tim Bevan

I’ve recently joined up with Walking Football Brisbane, which started in Qld late last year. It may sound sedate, but it involves a lot of speed walking so is excellent aerobic exercise and a lot of fun. All levels of players are welcome, including ladies. It might provide some enjoyable training for QVC players who live in the Brisbane area.

We are trying to get enough players interested to run a tournament on Sunday 7th October.  We currently train at 2 Brisbane locations:

North Lakes: Northside Indoor Sports and Fitness, 17 Flinders Parade, North Lakes – Sundays 3.00pm to 5.00pm

Coorparoo: Brisbane City Indoor Sports Centre, Castlemaine Rd, Coorparoo – Saturdays 10.00am to 12.00pm

The rules are simple – no bodily contact, no kicking over head height. Most games are 5 or 6 a side played on synthetic pitches approx 40 x 25 metres.  $10 per 2 hour session.

If you are interested or want more information, please contact Tim Bevan M 0416 116 383  E timhbevan@bigpond.com
