Associate Membership drive for 2018-2019
The Gordon District Cricket Club is seeking your assistance to secure needed income while at the same time substantially increasing the number of supporters and former players to become directly involved in our proud club. Below you will find a message from the President, Geoff Hickman seeking your help to enable our club to continue its great traditions and increase its important role as part of our community. Please read Geoff's message and dig deep and become an Associate Member of the GDCC. Don't leave it to someone else, this is your chance to contribute.
Gordon DCC is a club with over 110 years of history, of proud achievements and has been the nursery of many legends of Australian cricket. Many of you have written your own page in this great history and we thank all former players, volunteers, officials and supporters for their contribution to, not only our proud cricket club, but the great game of cricket in Australia. We all want and expect our club to go for another 100 years and provide opportunities to the future legends of Australian cricket.
We would like to encourage former players and all supporters to continue their association with the club. Much has been documented in recent months about the struggle of grassroots cricket in Australia. The reality is our great club survives from year to year on the hard work of our volunteers and players and the financial support of our loyal sponsors. That with the financial contribution of our Annual Golf Day allows our club to remain financially solvent. With rising standards and expectations, the club needs to continually raise the bar on available resources. With that in mind we have embarked on an ambitious five-year plan in order to maintain our place in one of the world’s leading club competitions.
The fees that our players pay each season only cover approximately a third of the overall costs of running our club. We do not pay our players, we spend most of our money on providing quality coaching and the costs of playing each week (e.g. ball costs, ground hire etc).
As a past player or supporter of our club, we welcome your support and assistance. We seek more volunteers to assist in the running of our club, and to broaden the sources of income, to supplement our existing revenue streams.
In order to achieve this goal and to provide you with the opportunity to become more engaged with our club we are re-launching our associate membership packages, aptly known as the STAGS ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP. Each package will provide benefits to you as well as the opportunity to stay connected with our great club and continue to write our history in the great game of cricket in Australia. Further details of each package are included below.
