The new Subbies cricket season will begin in mid September.

It’s time for your Club’s membership renewal for 2022/23.

There are two forms to complete:

  • Club Membership (due by Secretaries Meeting 15-Aug) and
  • Team Nomination (due by Delegates Meeting 5 or 6-Sep (date TBC))

The new online entry forms are almost completely online and will involve a little typing but much less paperwork, scanning, and emailing.

The paper/pdf versions of the two forms are still available (if you prefer).

Please email all returns to secretary@qsdca.com.au  (Post or hand in at a meeting ok also)

There is a new Social Media Declaration Form included in Club Membership. The purpose of this is to deal with privacy and consent issues to allow use of Frogbox Internet Video coverage of QSDCA cricket matches. There are some important issues to consider which you can read about here. (https://qsdca.com.au/qsdca-frogbox-acquired/)

Club admins may need to consider the implications of the Social Media Declaration carefully. If you have questions please get in touch with me or Bruce.
