Thanks everyone for a very enjoyable 2015/16 season and subsequent presentation night celebration. I’m sure you all enjoyed our MC for the night – Luke Slattery and enjoyed the opportunity to meet with our Mayor Kris Hanna, our local Councillor Tim Pfeiffer and the Member for Hindmarsh Matt Williams. I am pleased to have been given the opportunity to lead the club once again and look forward to being of service to all of you in the role as President. I’ll try not to use that term too often moving forward as each and every Roadie is important and no one is above anyone else in this club.
One of the things I love about the club is the spirit of inclusion we support for all involved. We find space for all and we are servants of the game of cricket and of our community. I was delighted at the level of excitement shown at the AGM/Presentation night and wanted to say a word or two of thanks to those who have put their hands up to help guide the club over these interesting times ahead. We have an exciting mix of capabilities on the committee and in our club in general and the combined efforts of this team will no doubt provide for a great environment for all in 2016/17. Serving on committee can be a fun experience when you have a great team to work with and I certainly have that in the elected nominees and also in the 3 folks who put up their hands but could not be squeezed into the general committee. Not to worry – that sense of inclusion I love about the club will also be on display at a committee level with all of the team welcomed in to any and all of our discussion.
Moving forward I will be gathering the team over the next couple of weeks to collect as many thoughts and ideas as possible for the season and years ahead for our proud club. I encourage you all to speak with any of the following people if you have any comments you want to see this group address on your behalf:
Matt and Kristin Potts
Whilst no doubt we will get a long list of items to work on from all of that collective thinking power – we will work on prioritising the list and reporting back regularly to you all as to our progress and any changes or additions we make along the way. I’d also like to hear from you all as to what are the best methods to communicate our messages as we have so many different forums available to us and we can embrace many different methods to share information going forward.
Look forward to sharing more with you all soon.
