Please see this previous post for the final scores and awards for the 2017-18 Season 1.

The awards for both both seasons of the 2017-18 financial year were presented during the Winter Water Basketball dinner last Saturday. A big thank you to the 35 in attendance for making it another success.

With regards to the 2017-18 Season 2, congratulations to the Championship winners of Division 1, The Nuts and of Division 2, Sheep Stations. A big congratulations also to the winners of the Individual Awards:

2017-18 Season 2:

  • Best & Fairest Female: Nicki Fox (Ducks)
  • Best & Fairest Male: Tim Hynes (Beached Az)
  • Most improved Female: Julie Mc (Clownfish)
  • Most improved Male: Dylan graham (Sharks)

The complete Best & Fairest list (of those who received points) has now been updated in the Stats section for this season. With 286 points for the season, Jemma Dazeley once more bagged the top scorer spot, closely followed by Tony Edmondson with 275 and Cole Dabner in third with 215 points.

As usual, I’d like to take a moment here to recognise the contributions of duty teams, captains, umpires and board members! Without everyone’s help and enthusiasm we wouldn’t be able to keep this competition running as smoothly as it has been. A small effort on everyone’s part constitutes a significant result for everyone to enjoy. As always Sylvie’s help with setting up equipment continues to be appreciated 🙂 . We were fortunate again this season to have 8 (reasonably) solid teams, so a special thank you to all Captains for keeping their teams organised and engaged, particularly with the added membership fee collection effort, and the Board for their work behinds the scenes.

The Incorporated Association’s Annual General Meeting is due and will be held prior to Round 1 of next season, which will be on the 26th of July, 6:30pm – 7:30pm in DKHAC meeting room 1 (Dive pool). All players are invited to attend. The agenda will be communicated to the captains via email closer to the meeting date. One of the items discussed will be Board membership. The current Board members have all confirmed they’re happy to continue in their current roles. However, if any player wishes to nominate themselves for a position on the board, the nomination should be submitted to me via email by Friday 20 July 5pm at the latest, so it can be voted upon (via email through captains) in the lead-up to, and confirmed in, the AGM.

We’ll kick the 2018-19 first season off with a Come & Try night on 19 July, followed by the first round on the 26th. For the full year’s schedule, as usual, check the Roster page.

It sounds like all teams are good to continue and have their captains in place. To assist in planning, it would be very useful if the Captains could indicate as early as possible whether their team will need help with finding new players, and if they do, please make sure to attend the Come & Try night. Similarly, the sooner umpires can confirm with Tony whether they intend to continue umpiring next season the better. Captains will need to submit their team registration sheets by Sunday the 22nd of July at the latest (start with confirmed players only; it’s easier to add than to remove when doing the Stats).

The fees for the 2018-19 financial year have been negotiated to remain the same as last year, which is great news, and the usual detailed information wil be emailed to the captains for distribution.

New/interested players are encouraged to attend the Come & Try night and/or send us an email with your enquiry through our enquiry form. The usual notification and poster will make its way onto the website and into DKHAC in the lead up to the night as well. Kyle has posted the event on our Facebook page, so you can share that on your timeline.

Thank you all for another great season; hope to see you all back in the pool in July. 🙂

Lastly, the email regarding the Winter Water Basketball Dinner has gone out to all captains yesterday. See below for a summary, and please follow up with your captain if you haven’t yet received the more detailed email with RSVP and payment arrangements.

As has been indicated on the roster from the start of the season, this year’s Winter Water Basketball Dinner will be on Saturday the 16th of June.

We’d like this to be event for all players to participate in, so please help us make this event a success by getting as many of your team mates to come along as possible. Partners are invited as well.

  • The Dinner will be at 7:00pm on Saturday the 16th of June at the Ball & Chain’s upstairs function room.
  • The cost is $35 per head and the menu is a choice of:
    • Lamb shank – A favourite comfort food. A chunky shank served on potato mash enhanced with a tasty rosemary and red wine sauce.
    • Tasmanian Atlantic salmon – Chargrilled with hollandaise sauce.
    • 300g Rump steak – Many diners say this is the tastiest cut of all. It requires a little more work from the jaw because of its density but the flavour is well worth it. Topped with garlic and herb butter.
    • The vegetarian option is all you want from the salad bar for $15. If anyone wants this option then we suggest they just confirm their attendance via email and then pay on the night to keep it simple.
  • Drinks can be purchased separately at the upstairs bar.

Please transfer all payments by Friday the 8th of June into the Water Basketball Tasmania account (see your captain for details). We’re maintaining a RSVP list of everyone attending and who has paid. So, since there is only limited space in the transfer reference field, if you’re paying for a number of people please let Kyle and myself know the names via email.

We’ll accept cash if a bank transfer is problematic, but the bank transfer is preferred. If you have any questions, please check with your captain or get in touch with me asap. Hope you can all make it 🙂

Thank you all for making it another enjoyable season so far.

Cheers,
Dave

As previously mentioned, the awards for both this season and Season 2 of the 2017-18 financial year will be handed out during the Winter Water Basketball Dinner on the 16th of June 2018 (see the Water Basketball Planner for the full 2017-18 schedule).

However, we wouldn’t want keep you in the dark until then with regards to the achievements of this season. Congratulations to the Championship winners of Division 1, The Nuts and of Division 2, Beached Az! A big congratulations also to the winners of the Individual Awards, especially the recurring champs Brett and Jemma for keeping their standards high:

2017-18 Season 1:

  • Best & Fairest Female: Jemma Dazeley (The Nuts)
  • Best & Fairest Male: Brett Ring (Clownfish)
  • Most improved Female: Mikalah Swain (Sharks)
  • Most improved Male: Nat Jackson (The Nuts)

The complete Best & Fairest list (of those who received points) has now been updated in the Stats section for this season.

Jemma Dazeley just frog-leaped Tony Edmondson (both from The Nuts) during the last regular game of the season (312 over 287) for the number 1 spot on the top scorers ladder with Brett Ring (Clownfish) in third spot with 174 points.

As usual, I’d like to take a moment here to recognise the contributions of duty teams, captains, umpires and board members! Without everyone’s help and enthusiasm we wouldn’t be able to keep this competition running as smoothly as it has been. A small effort on everyone’s part constitutes a significant result for everyone to enjoy. As always Sylvie’s help with setting up equipment and duty and Andrew’s efforts in providing us with game highlights on Facebook are appreciated as well. We were fortunate again this season to have 8 (reasonably) solid teams, so a special thank you to all Captains for keeping their teams organised and engaged, particularly with the added membership fee collection effort, and the Board for their work behinds the scenes.

Speaking of the Board, Tony will be taking over the Chief Umpire responsibilities in the upcoming season. Thank you John, for all your work in that role. Not always noticed or thanked, but it’s the kind of volunteer effort that keeps this competition running.

We’ve noticed (as umpires on the board but also speaking with various players) that the consistency in relation to the interpretation of rules has dropped a bit over the last few seasons, leading to confusion and at times play that is too physical. So we’d like to meet with all umpires at the beginning of next season to make sure we’re all on the same page with regards to the regulations and the interpretation of the ambiguities of the game. However, while that effort will be made, please be reminded that even with paid professional umpires, who study the game and practice umpiring, games are never perfect for everyone involved. So we’ll always continue to rely on that understanding from players and their capacity to play the game fairly with a positive and respectful mindset towards other players.

After the Christmas break, we’ll kick the 2017-18 second season off with a Come & Try night on 1 February, followed by the first round on the 8th. For the full season’s schedule, as usual, check the Roster page.

To assist in planning, it would be very useful if the Captains could indicate as early as possible whether they continue as Captains and whether their team will need help with finding new players. Similarly, the sooner umpires can confirm with Tony whether they intend to continue umpiring next season the better. Captains will need to submit their team registration sheets by January 26th at the latest (start with confirmed players only; it’s easier to add than to remove when doing the Stats).

New/interested players are encouraged to attend the Come & Try night on 1 Feb and/or send us an email with your inquiry through our enquiry form. The usual notification and poster will make its way onto the website and into DKHAC in the lead up to the night as well.

Thank you all for another great season; hopefully you’ll have a great Christmas break and much health and happiness in 2018! 🙂
