Committee desperate for members
THE immediate future of junior representative cricket is in doubt unless key committee people can be found in the coming weeks.
While CQ teams performed well at the 2005 state championships, players in those age divisions this year may not get the chance to emulate those results.
Nominations for the 2006 state championships are due next month but the Central Queensland Cricket Inc (CQCI) board will not be able to nominate teams while crucial junior sub-committee positions remain unfilled.
CQCI secretary Greg Michel said the positions of vice president in charge of junior cricket and junior sub-committee secretary had to be filled, prompting a meeting to be convened at Rockhampton's Frenchville Sports Club on Sunday at 9am.
'If these positions are not filled, then CQCI will not be able to nominate teams for the 2006 state championships because CQCI will not have anyone to organise and coordinate all necessary arrangements for the selection of the teams and sending teams to the championships,' Michel said.
The board is also seeking age group co-ordinators and a junior registrar. Also to be discussed at the meeting will be next season's CQ trials nomination process, proposed dates for trial matches and CQ coach nominations.
Anyone wishing to know more about the positions can phone CQCI president Rick Jones on 0409 059 806 or secretary Greg Michel on 4979 2071.
All interested people and parents of junior players are invited to attend Sunday's meeting.
