WORKING BEE SUCCESS The committee would like to extend their thanks to those who came and helped out at the Waverley working bee earlier this month. Diamond 9 is looking particularly impressive!  Those who attended will have their names marked off of the upcoming club duty roster.

Duty Roster Following on from the past two successful season of implementing a club duty roster, the upcoming season will see it implemented again. Our main duty involves setting up and marking diamond 9 each week, which many of you would have completed.  The duty roster is in the process of being completed and will be sent out soon.

BHSC FUNDRAISING Another fundraiser done, another success! A big thank you to all those who came down and helped out throughout the day at our last bunnings sausage sizzle. Keep an eye out on the next email to see when our next Bunnings fundraiser will be.

MEMORIAL SHIELD RECAP What better way to spend a fortnight before the softball season but to head to Werribee to play in the weekend memorial shield. The bandits put in a team and were assigned in to C grade. 3 games on Saturday (1 win) and 2 games on Sunday (1 win) meant we got in to the C Reserve Grand final. After a spirited 2-3 innings, the other team pulled ahead and we lost the steam to bring home the runs. A fun weekend with not too many injuries (that's a win right there!) and some fun times including Shelly's 3rd base slide/bum shuffling the last 10cms. Thanks to Chris for coaching, Steph and Nicole for organising, Ang and Julie for scoring and all the ladies in the team for all the weekend fun. Bring on Summer season 2019/20! -Shona
