17/02/2012: We have a Bunnings (fundraising) BBQ this sunday (19/2/2012) from 8 to 5 at Bunnings in Ballarat Road Sunshine. There was a last minute opening and we decided to take the opportunity.If you would like to donate some time to the cause all efforts would be greatly appreciated. Please Call John Willis - 0411 410 316 and he will try to roster you on if he can

5/12/2011: post Christmas Party/Reunion:- from John Harvey (NSTC president) This morning I have received 9 emails thrilled with how well yesterday went and wanting their appreciation past onto the committee ..... We did 96 meals .... just fantastic ... a great crowd

More important than that was the reminiscing, the renewing of old friendships from afternoons long past ... It didn't just happened ... there were literally dozens of jobs and many hours of work that went in by many people to bring it about. I hope you too enjoyed it. I hope you got the chance to mix with some of the pioneers of our club who have given us a chance to enjoy the club we have today. I hope when our time of playing passes we can look back on our era with similar fondness, memories and friendships that were on display yesterday. I'm not going to individualise ... will only leave someone out ... like I did with Dicky yesterday ( who did a marvellous job with the photos so i make one exception) but I do say to so many who worked so diligently on so many various tasks a huge thank you.

Last point, we had a 'reflections book' going around ... a few wrote in it ... some lovely reflections, but certainly the majority didn't. We'd love everyone to contribute so if you haven't the books at the club .. include your contact details, era and reflections.

Thanks so much and to those who have sent emails I will respond individually over the next couple of days.

7/7/2011: Robert won the 2011 12 and Under  JDS Victorian State Championships @ Pakenham

15/5/2011: Our club was deeply saddened by the passing of Ryan John Riggio. Ryan has been such a brave young man overcoming many battles in his 9 mths of life ... repeatedly overcoming odds the medical world never thought he could. Those close to the Riggio's have no doubt Ryan's bravery emanated from his incredible parents ... our dear friends John and Angela who kept a 9 mth beside vigil. Ryan could not have hoped to have been born into a more magnificent family. To John and Ange, Ryan's Uncle and Aunty Damian and Vicki and his grandparents we offer all our love and prayers during this most difficult of times.

1/1/2011: HAPPPY NEW YEAR! A new year, and new lot of teams, some teams go up a grade some down, and a fresh start for some potential Djokovic's or Clijster's. I am sure we are all looking forward to a great year ahead, but remember most of all, have FUN!

NSTC has some great new plans for this year including extensions to clubroom and courts, new attire, club history records, and a raft of new things on the horizon. If you have any ideas you think may benefit the club, let one of our committee members know, we are always interested in new ideas and members to help out.

The tournament was won by our Life members daughter Samantha Scott and Richard Rule. Runners up were Kyra Rule and Tony Harvey. Congratulations to all players on a fantastic day. We thank John and Robyn Scott for their work in making this tournament possible. Most importantly this tournament recognized the marvelous work of Joff and the late Nancy Scott both life members. All current members are indebted to these two stalwarts of the club that kept it alive during tough times. Without the dedication of these two great Life members none of us would have the marvelous club we do today. That their lovely granddaughter won the tournament is so fitting.
