Our guests from the Carlton Cricket Club: L-R Prominent supporter Laurie High, Chairman of Selectors
Tony Gleeson, Treasurer Gary Schickerling and Board member Nick Kokkinos.

Our traditional Melbourne Cup Day this year again proved a highlight for the Moonee Valley Cricket Club.
Players, partners, family and supporters gathered at the bowling club rooms at Ormond Park to have a delightful meal, a punt with the bookies, a dash at the sweeps and the convivial atmosphere.
Thanks go again to Life Member Bob Sciacchitano for providing and cooking the spit roasts, and to Vice President Sandro Capocchi and partner Kim Richardson for organising and preparing the bulk of the salads.
Bob Sciacchitano was at the Club from 8am to start the spit, ably assisted by Pete Fenaughty.
Thanks also go to Mark Cini for running the book, with assistance from Jim Polonidis and Tien Ha, and to Danny Terzini for running the sweeps.
Thanks don't go to Life Member Jim McKenzie, who came away from the day quite satisfied with his returns, while "Junior" Cini wasn't quite so sure after Jimmy cleaned up on the punt.
We also had excellent support on the day from the Carlton Cricket Club, with treasurer Gary Schickerling, Chairman of Selectors Tony Gleeson, Board member Nick Kokkinos and prominent supporter Laurie High enjoying themselves with us throughout the afternoon.
