The annual Seddon CC Multicultural Day is this Friday 26 January (Australia Day).
Seddon CC Multicultural Day event is a celebration of the cultural diversity at our club, and within the local community in general, while also celebrating the invaluable contribution of club members of all nationalities and backgrounds.
We have an action packed day planned including three teams (two sides from outside the club) competing in the T20 cricket competition for the Seddon CC Multicultural Day Cup, lamb & chicken gyros for lunch, 'Foods of the World' for dinner, official presentations and a band finishing off a big day at the club.
This year the T20 cricket competition will be very competitive, with a Sri Lankan side managed by Sammy Kandage (SK Lankans) and an Indian side managed by Raja Sandhu (Fateh CC) determined to take the Cup away from the Seddon side (Dockers Diversity) captained by Josh Beaumont.
12pm: Fateh CC vs SK Lankans
3.30pm: Dockers Diversity vs winner of Fateh CC/SK Lankans
8pm: 'Foods of the World' dinner served
9pm: Band (Unchained Silence)
Once again we will be cooking a lamb (and chicken this year) gyros spit for lunch under the Bendigo Bank marquee on the oval. Lunch will be served around 12pm-1pm.
As with every year we have held the Multicultural Day event at the clubrooms, the 'Foods of the World' dinner will be supplied by club members and will no doubt be a highlight of the days festivities. Dinner will be served after the offical presentations around 8pm and will include dishes from all parts of the world.
If you would like to contribute a dinner dish, please advise Leigh Davies ASAP (as you can never have enough food!).
Harley Grieves' band, Unchained Silence, will again shake the foundations with covers and original tunes after dinner. This is the second year that Unchained Silence have played at the clubrooms, so let's all get behind them and contribute to their performance any way you can.
$10 per player (T20 cricket competition)
$10 for lunch (per gyros)
$10 for dinner

Mark Webb, Seddon's 2016/17 premiership winning coach, has been recognised by Cricket Victoria as the state's Senior Coach of the Year.
Mark took on the voluntary role as senior playing coach at Seddon at the start of last season. He was previously the captain of the Seddon 1st X1. Mark demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities by delegating responsibilities to a number of assistants within the club and, in turn, leading the 1st X1 to the VTCA North West premiership. Mark's individual score of 52 was pivotal in the Dockers' semi-final win against Druids.
Throughout the season the club encountered a number of challenges. During this time Mark galvanised the playing group to keep focussing on the task of making finals and eventually winning the Grand Final after making a club record team score of 462.
Mark attributes his success as coach to the supportive culture at Seddon.
"Coaching a club like Seddon is easy due to all the great people around the place and support network."
Mark has stepped down as coach for the 2017/18 season, and Grand Final double centurion Ben Speake has taken the reigns.
The Seddon Cricket Club Committee and the wider Club community would like to congratulate Mark on this well deserved accolade.
The next event on the Seddon CC social calendar is the eagerly anticipated Melbourne Cup Auction on Saturday 4 November.
This event has been revamped - previously the annual Derby Night function - to be more fun and action packed and is one of our major fundraising events for the year.
There will be a selection of cocktails made by an experienced cocktail barman (think Tom Cruise in the movie Cocktail) and pizza slices for dinner on sale throughout the evening. It is recommended that you wear op-shop race wear to get into the spirit of the evening.
As this event is the place to be seen after the Derby Day Flemington races, please feel free to extend the invite (i.e. forward this email) and bring along family, friends, punters and anyone else you know who likes a punt and a good time!

the door as we are all aware that door frames are not always square and an off
the shelf door will require adjustment at the time of installation.
