Junior Presentation Nights - they're coming up fast!
Our junior presentation nights are coming up in April - and because we're such a big club we need to stage them over three dates.
The Under 16 night is on Friday, April 9.
The Under 12 night is Friday, April 16.
The combined night for the Under 10s and Under 14s is Friday, April 23.
Each night starts at 6.30pm. The cost is $10 per adult, $5 per junior or $20 per family.
We need volunteers to help with setting up, cooking the barbecue, etc. If you can help, phone Junior Co-ordinator Kevin Gardiner on 9376 8434 or on 0417 536 896.
Attached is a flier with more details.
Forthcoming dates to watch:
Saturday, April 17 - our big Presentation Night at the North Suburban Club. You know it's a great night, so put it down in the diary now!
More details coming shortly.
Deluge dealt us four Grand Final teams
The heavens opened up over Melbourne on Saturday, March 6, and the subsequent washouts and reductions in play saw Moonee Valley progress with five teams into the grand finals - the Firsts, Seconds, Thirds, Fourths and the Under 16 White team.
And we've still got the Sevenths and our Under 12 D team contesting the one-day semi finals.
The downpour was touted in some areas as the heaviest we've seen for 40 years, and Moonee Ponds Creek behind Ormond Park was soon running a banker.
There was follow-up heavy rain on the Saturday night, on Sunday and into Monday, which was the reserve day for our Thirds, Fourths and juniors.
It's a great result with five senior sides and two junior sides still live in the finals. Watch this space to see where you can see our Moonee Valley teams going for glory.
Our Fourths were down at Fairbairn Park when the Saturday rain came, and Dean Lawson provided this photo of the park under water - taken through his windscreen.
Peter Golding was out at John McLeod Oval in Deer Park with the Seconds, and got the shots of a barely-visible ground and the clubrooms awash.
Hailstones bigger than 20-cent coins pelted the ground at Ormond Park as players from the Firsts and the Sevenths huddled in our clubrooms. The whole park was very quickly under sheets of water, and it was obvious there would be no more play for the day.
There were no further balls bowled in the Firsts match against Footscray United, and Moonee Valley went through to the Grand Final courtesy of finishing top of the ladder.
The progression also means Moonee Valley has booked a spot for a further promotion for next season, up into North Division - just one rung below the highest grade in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association.
