On Grand Final Day, this Saturday, ‘Bankers’ will play as usual, starting at 1.00pm. However, there will also be play from noon till 2.00pm for the football tragics who want to have the best of both worlds.

If you want to play on Saturday at either start times, could you please advise Ian Mason of your intentions via email: .

Clubhouse Security

There have recently been a number of very concerning incidents regarding the security at both the Swinburne Avenue and Glen Street premises.  The security patrols employed by the MCC to check premises after hours have, for instance, found the external door unlocked, sometimes wide open with all internal lights on.  The club has been very fortunate that to date no damage has been done by opportune intruders.

Would all members please be reminded of the need to protect our clubrooms.

Accordingly, please ensure that there are still others at the clubrooms when you leave.  If not, those who leave last must ensure that ALL external doors are locked and manually checked from the outside.

Club Communications

Some members have attempted to communicate with club officials by way of the Comments Section of our website.  It is most unlikely that your request for a hoody, request for team selection, advice of new address or nomination for Pennant will reach the intended recipient via the website. In fact it will probably not be seen at all for some weeks.You can more effectively communicate by phone or e-mail to the person you want. Their contact details are in the club handbook and on the website under the “About/Committee” Tab.

Boroondara Cup Remains in the MCC Bowls Cabinet

Congratulations to all our bowlers who represented MCC Bowls at the annual Boroondara Cup held at Swinburne Ave today.

As last year’s winners we won the rights to host event, as well as enter 2 teams for the competition. MCC 1 consisted of Gillian Baxter, Anne Draffen, John Leitch, Neil McCrae, Louise Mejean, Tom Ristic and Chris Warne while MCC 2 consisted of Rod Donaldson, David Friedman, John Graham, Karen Thomson, Colin Waddell, Fay Winther and Graham Winther.

Following 7 games of 5 ends and a delightful roast lunch MCC 1 emerged victorious, while MCC 2 finished a respectable 4th.

Well done to all who represented the club today and to the volunteers who put the day on Ian Smith and Reg Davis, thank you very much.

We look forward to hosting the event again last year.
