At the clubs 117th Annual General Meeting on Tuesday the 27th September 2022, long serving club member Peter Isle was awarded Life Membership of the cricket club. Peter was not aware he was going to be up for life membership, and it took a bit of planning with his sister Tricia both to keep it a secret as well as to get Peter to come along to the AGM.
Gareth Gibson read out the following which was compiled by Peter Burke and Tricia
You may have seen that our registrations are open for the coming season, the move to the new “PlayHQ” means that if you wish to keep any stats from previous years you will need to fill in your CricHQ ID number and I have attached a list of last year’s numbers.
Because of the school holiday dates and that the junior cricket starts back just after the school holidays it is really helpful if you register as soon as you can.
In their last year at intermediate school our Year 8 players finish their club cricket in December before they head off to their respective high schools, some of the players have been with the club for 7 years starting out at our KVS Friday Night junior cricket at Burnside Park until transitioning into Saturday morning cricket with Christchurch Junior Cricket Association.
