The new season is just beginning and that means that young cricketers will be training on Fridays, with their parents watching on the field, in the clubhouse or on the terrace. Ideally of course with the sun shining…..what is better than the whole VCC family having a meal together and organising something, particularly if it’s good weather.
The Friday Evening Committee will facilitate this but we need your help as well! From FRIDAY MAY 11 we will arrange food for everyone after the training sessions at low cost ….for young cricketers, their parents, brothers, sisters, all VCC members and everyone else who wants to join in. If the weather’s good we can organise a bit of hit and run, an 8-a-side or a football match. We can also have a cricket rules evening for parents and new members, a pub quiz or just watch cricket or World Cup football together.
What is needed? In the first place our members. We need a lot of people to come. Kids: tell your parents that they can eat in the clubhouse after the training sessions. Bring brothers and sisters and friends along. And VCC members: come and watch the youngsters train and join in with the meal afterwards.
What else? We are looking for people to help with the organisation of these club evenings. Who would like to help with preparing the food or knows of a good cheap caterer? Which parents would like to organise a match, a quiz or a lottery draw or who would like to give a cricket course or have any other bright ideas? Who wants to do something for the young cricketers or the parents? Who wants te help the Friday Evening Committee with the organisation?
The clubhouse needs to be spruced up for the Friday evenings.We have already created a kids corner. We are now looking for beanbags or a sofa for the terrace, for the kids corner or by the TV. We would also like games to played indoors and outdoors. If you have any toys or games you were intending to throw away – bring them to VCC! A small slide for the terrace (supervised!), a water slide, a garage and cars, ropes, a dart board, a table football or table tennis game – all very welcome. We can – with your help – organise lots of things.
Are you also interested in making Friday evenings fun at VCC? Let us know! We are waiting for your input! The Friday Evening Committee is comprised of Stella, Petra, Floris deL, Steffen, Marjan, Kees, Jan Willem and Raheela. They want to make something of the Fridays. You are also welcome to join our committee. Send us an mail via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you!
