2020/21 Special General Meeting Minutes etc al…

All Clubs,

Please note the Minutes from the 2020/21 Special General Meeting, held on 10th Nov. at Vermont CC, just before the commencement of the BHRDCA’s 130th season, are now posted in the Past Meetings folder on the Website (Club & Playing Resources > Past Meetings > 2020/21 Meetings)

Among items of note from the Meeting…

  • All proposed Rule changes for the 2020/21 season were passed unanimously (inclusive of a free hit for any No Ball call in all Shield Grades (only)), and
  • A shift to Online processing of Umpire Match Payments
  • The approval of Affiliation Fees, Honoraria and Umpire Match Fees for 2020/21

The final and most significant decision on the night occurred, when the Delegates voted unanimously to support the bestowing of the BHRDCA’s 38th Life Membership on the current serving President; Peter Rosenthal.

Congratulations Peter on a thoroughly well deserved honour after a decade as BHRDCA President and years more contribution to the BHRDCA on and off the field.

Finally, a reminder to all Clubs, and to assist those Clubs who are e-Scoring this season please ensure your Team Selection lists are posted on MyCricket by 8.00 p.m. Friday night prior to Weekend matches and as soon as possible prior to Junior & Veterans Matches.

Good luck to all the Clubs, Teams and players for the 2020/21 season.



A Presentation Night like never before!……. Virtual……..
The video will be available asap, this will include interviews with some award winners. Unfortunately numbers were limited at the venue, therefore many awards will be handed out back at clubs.
Paul Hooper and Peter Rosenthal ran a great show and kept things moving.
Here is a sneak peak behind the scenes while the video was rolling.

Thank you to Topline Cricket for the great trophies & Altegra Australia for the media wall. A big thank you to James McLeod and his staff form Tobin Brothers Ringwood for providing the facility and videography (thanks Matt).

Thank you to all our sponsors that provide us with support year in and year out, it was unfortunate that we were unable to support

Mulgrave Country Club for this event but we will eventually get there.
