NCBA's annual general meeting will be held on Wednesday Sep 10 at 7 pm at the batting cages (bring your own chairs). Positions that are up for election are President, Secretary and Second VP. Please submit nominations to Neil Armstrong at email@example.com. We will also need to fill other volunteer positions so please let any of the executive know if you wish to fill one of the positions for the year.
As usual, you will receive a discounted rate for registration if you register your child/children at the AGM for the 2015 season.
To clarify so there are no misunderstandings, umpires, who are paid for their duties, are responsible for their own drinks/water (except for tournaments when complimentary water is provided to umpires). Please come to the park prepared, especially with the hot weather through the summer months. or you may purchase your drinks from concession, which is always open when games are scheduled.
Congratulations to Coach Scott and his Mosquito Blue Jays team for winning the Surrey Season Opener this weekend! The semi-final and final games were very exciting and our Blue Jays who were behind against North Delta in the finals by 4 runs in the last inning, managed to come back with 2 outs, to win 16 to 14!
Excellent work Newton Blue Jays!
Also congratulations to Coach Neil and his Peewee AA team who made it to the playoffs and lost in a very close game in the semi-finals. The team had some great hits, including several home runs throughout the pool play and semi-finals. A promising start to the summer season!

Thank you to all the teams for participating and we hope to see you at the Cook Tournament in summer ball season (June 26 to Jul 1). My personal goal as tournament coordinator is to ensure we have fair play, a variety of teams competing, and a great time for players and families alike during our tournaments. I hope we succeeded at least a little to accomplish these goals!
A big THANK YOU to all our NCBA families for all the volunteer hours spent in preparation before the tournament, and for field duty, and concession duty throughout the whole weekend. We could not run this tournament without the hours of dedication given by our families. Thank you to our umpires for spending their long weekend officiating our games.
We also have a parent tournament and Pub night coming up May 31. Register your team now!
Thanks again and good luck in the rest of your ball season!
