PAYING SENIOR FEES
It's important that Moonee Valley's senior players are aware of their options and requirements to pay their fees in season 2007/08.FenaughtyPeter04-05

It's been detailed in several newsletters, and the options are quite clear.

Senior players MUST pay their fees in full by the THURSDAY SELECTION NIGHT before the first game on the October 6 weekend, or else they revert to the pay-by-week option.

The "paid in full" fee is $250 ($145 for students, unemployed or other concessional people). That is their season's full payment. They do not have to pay what in the past has been the $5 per week match fee. This represents a significant saving of around $100 on what the full fee was last year.

Players who do not PAY IN FULL by the THURSDAY SELECTION NIGHT are automatically placed on the pay-by-week option, which requires payment of $20 for each day's play ($10 per week for students, unemployed and eligible concessions).

Both options include sporting club membership, and will help us improve our cash flow through the Club.

Players wanting to pay their fees have plenty of options to pay committee members, who have receipt books on hand. You should see either Treasurer Peter Fenaughty (above right), Assistant Treasurer Paul Comino, President Sandro Capocchi, Vice President Jim Polonidis or Junior Co-ordinator Charlie Walker.

Several of these guys know how to drive the EFTPOS machine - so we will take cash, cheques or card.

Senior practice matches - this Sunday!

RaffaeleLou07-08 6cmLou lines up to coach Valleys this season

Moonee Valley has a new coach for season 2007/8, with Lou Raffaele (left) joining us as playing coach.
Lou's career dates from 1984/85, and he's seen success with St Paul's CC (now known as Seabrook), West Newport,
Bellbridge (now known as Hoppers Crossing) and East Coburg.
Moonee Valley well remembers Lou from East Coburg - as a century in the semi-final knocked Moonee Valley out of the fight for the flag in what was our last season with our top two turf sides in the MMVCA before moving to the Victorian Turf Cricket Association.
In 2005/06 Lou joined Epping in the Diamond Valley league and made the grand final. Lou took a break from cricket in 2006/07 to relax the body and enjoy the birth of his son. Our MVCC bylaws require us to advertise the coach's position each season. Last year's coach, Vik Chand, did not reapply.

An Author Among Us
Kam Kenny-Jones is an all-rounder of some note, having commenced playing with our U14 team last season. He combines an upright and patient batting technique with some very attacking shot-making, can swing the ball both ways and moves quickly in the field.

Kam’s dad, Ross, also has a few strings to his bow, if the recent publication of his latest book, “Humanity’s Mirror: 150 Years of Anatomy In Melbourne” is any guide.

Reviewed very favorably in the Sunday Age in July, Ross’ book is no dry academic work but rather takes a very lively approach to the history of medical education and highlights how it’s often had more twists and turns than a small intestine.

“A rich feast of adventure, scandal and humour” is how the Faculty of Medicine’s own website describes it. Congratulations to Ross and the Kenny-Jones family. Click here to find out more.
