WINTER SEASON 2014 – FINALS UMPIRES
The Winter 2014 season is drawing to a close, with the first of the finals commencing Tuesday 9th September. Nominations for umpiring duties are being called for – the MMPL Committee has set aside a pool of $90 per final, to be shared among a maximum of three (3) umpires per final – if there is only one umpire in attendance then that one umpire will be awarded the $90, but only if their nomination is received by either the MMPL Secretary (Mark Holly 0411 745 062) or the President (Ian Hart 0423 027 269) before the 9th September.
REGISTRATION FEES – W2014
One major change for winter season 2014 – the registration fee has been expanded from $60.00 to $80.00, to incorporate a compulsory $20.00 levy for the end-of-season function at the AMORA HOTEL RIVERWALK in Richmond; following the success of last winter’s end-of-season function at the Amora for an MMPL-subsidised fee of only $30.00, the MMPL Committee decided to devise a method whereby all members would have the opportunity to attend the end-of-season function in 2014 for an overall reduction in fees; last year the registration fee was $60.00 per player (the Team Registration fee of $100 is no longer applicable), and the end-of-season function cost was $30.00 per player; this year 2014 the registration fee is $80.00 incorporating the end-of-season function cost – an overall decrease of $10.00 per player;
the end-of-season presentation function at the Amora Hotel Riverwalk in Richmond will be held on Saturday 4th October 2014; members will need to confirm their attendance with the MMPL Executive by Friday 19th September 2014; member’s presentation tickets will be transferrable to guests; other guests will pay $60; bookings for all attendees must be made by Friday 19th September to either the MMPL Secretary (Mark Holly 0411 745 062) or the President (Ian Hart 0423 027 269) or the Treasurer (Kevin Jessup 0407 545 288).
For an extra cost of only $20.00 as described above, members who attend the end-of-season function will receive a three-course dinner plus refreshments between 7:00pm and 11:00pm – good value for money, and a golden opportunity to socialise with fellow members of the pool fraternity.
