HELMETS

YOU CAN READ THE NEW QVC SAFETY POLICY BYLAW (WHICH INCLUDES HELMETS) HERE

Dear Colleagues,
The new QVC Player Safety Policy document which includes requirements for wearing helmets as required by the governing bodies of cricket, in particular CA, VCA, and QC. There should be no surprises to anyone as the QVC Committee has been forewarning this as a likely requirement during the past 18 months based on information provided by the governing bodies.

Officially, the Policy will come into effect from 09 Sep 2019, the day after our Regional Competition Finals. This is aimed to ease those players into wearing helmets, if not already doing so, during the trial/practice matches before the respective Age Group National Championships in Nov 19 where helmets will be a compulsory requirement.

There will be a detailed QVC Playing Conditions – Helmets document released in the near future that will be the authoritative documents for umpires, players and officials. This document is currently being drafted by Nelma Grout in consultation with QC.

We will be providing 2 x team helmets for each team participating in the O60s & O70s championships to assist in the transition. These will also be available for use at the trial/selection matches.

We encourage all players to acquire their own helmets, certainly in time for the 2020 season. We have negotiated a good deal (currently $59.00) for a compliant helmet with KD Sports ((Ph 07 33006114, ask for Michael and indicate that you are a QVC member). The VCA National Sponsor Kingsgrove Sports (Sydney) also offers a Veterans Cricket discount.

We now must move forward as players and officials on this matter. Your full support, acknowledging this represents a significant change for many of us not used to helmet, would be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Keith Christiansen
QVC President

VALE – LEWIS DALE COOPER (May,1937 – April,2019)

Dear Colleagues,
It is my very sad duty to advise you of the passing of Lew Cooper OAM last night. He died peacefully surrounded by family members. I have already passed-on condolences to the family on behalf of QVC. Details of the funeral will be notified in due course.

Lew was our founding Patron and recently made our first Life Member. Here in QLD we are playing veterans cricket because of the vision, leadership and drive of Lew!! It is the end of an era in the history of Qld cricket not just veterans cricket. His passing will be deeply felt by many of us who had the privilege of being one of ‘ Lew’s Boys’ from primary school days right through our cricket careers. He touched and assisted many people on and off the field right across our State.

Details for Lew’s funeral as follows:
Date: Tue 23 Apr 2019
Time 11.00am
Venue: Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 369 Given Tce, Paddington
Wake: Queensland Cricketers Club (Vulture St side of the Gabba), starting at 1pm.
In lieu of flowers donations should be made to Lord’s Taverners QLD.

QVC will make a donation to Lord’s Taverners on behalf of members.

I would ask all captains and players to wear black arm bands and pause to remember Lew at the start of our next matches in the O50s & O60/70s regional competition over the next few weekends.

Rest in Peace Lew!

Regards
Keith Christiansen
QVC President
