News from Round 6

DSC_0172Another morning where the sun shined brightly on Fawkner Park and the rain stayed away.

We had a few kids come down for skills clinics and we had a slowpitch game as well. Join us again this Sunday for more of the same.

We also managed to complete 6 games of fastpitch,several of which were tight and hotly contested, as well as keep the canteen ticking over at a rapid rate (if anyone knows of someone who wants to volunteer a couple of hours on a Sunday to help out in the canteen, get in touch! Help always appreciated.)

Busy Sunday in the park yet again, our AGM was run, and we have some new faces on the executive for 2015/16. It’s going to be a very exciting 12 months.

Participation Awards were also in play today, congrats to the following players for earning themselves a little bit of extra cash.

Monash – Kirstyn Macdonald – 3 catchers
Wingers – Jess Chomley – 4 K2s (but actually pitched 7)

The weather was ordinary for most of the afternoon, alternating between cold and rainy and cold and windy, but those who managed to stick around until after four were rewarded with some sunshine and a rainbow over Diamond 7.

 

We break for the Queens Birthday Long weekend this week, good luck to MSA teams Vicsens and Melbourne Warriors, as well several other MSA individuals who are also competing. We’ll be back in the park on June 14th.

Once more the Melbourne weather gods showed us some kindness and we had a beautiful sunny start to the morning and our slowpitch game. Cooled off later in the afternoon, but the rain held off and all games went ahead.

11138110_856882711046227_5901529922258949269_nWe had a few of our players volunteering their time at the International Student Sports and Recreation Expo on Saturday. Spreading the word about the MSA and softball in general.

So, as National Volunteers Week comes to an end the MSA would like to extend its thanks to not only our softball volunteers, but also to those that volunteer their time to the wider community.

Many programs would not be sustainable without the support of those behind the scenes, who tirelessly volunteer their services, and we remain ever grateful.
