Next Saturday evening (25 June), our Club will be conducting the annual fundraiser at the Darwin Symphony Orchestra concert (Pink Floyd this year) at the Gardens Amphitheatre. We provide cleanup services for the concert, including replacement of consumables in the toilet blocks during the concert. Entry is by gold coin donation for the public.
There are really three phases to the fundraiser:
preparation phase before the concert 4.30 - 5.30 (me plus one other) to make sure the toilet blocks are ready for service and bring in the required consumables.
concert phase 6.30 to 9.30 (2-4 people - preferably with at least one female) - replenishing consumables in the toilet blocks and enjoy the concert.
clean up phase 9.00 to 10.30 (as many people as possible to fastrack the process - but at least 10) - clean up at end of concert - if we have many hands this task will be done and dusted in an hour.
The crowd are generally a well behaved and tidy crowd, so it is usually not that difficult on us - as long as we get enough people.
It is essential that the Club undertake this activity each year if we wish to continue funding our programs such as player incentives, low cost fees and the junior programs. WE NEED YOU!
If you are able to assist with this important fundraiser, particularly the clean up phase, please let our Club President Graham Tribe know by e-mail
. As a footnote, GT has been to the last three of these annual concerts and they are really enjoyable and a great family night out at very low cost to you.
Yesterday the NT Government announced that the Nightcliff Sports Club was successful in obtaining a $150,000 sport and recreation grant, for a new cricket nets facility to be provided to the Nightcliff Cricket Club. This is a great outcome for the current and past committee of our Club, who work tirelessly behind the scenes. Special mention to last year’s president and life member Brad Hatton who was instrumental in our submission and also the Nightcliff Sports Club who, in addition to being our major sponsor, have been working proactively with our Club towards the realisation of the overall Nightcliff Sports Ground redevelopment .
This announcement goes a long way to contributing to NCC’s commitment of providing better training facilities for its members and the Nightcliff Community. The money is the first step in our net redevelopment which will help promote NCC as a premier club and with the inclusion of lighting facilities, allow for better training conditions for all members. However this is only the first step, albeit a huge step forward, with a number of activities still to bed down before we see any movement with this redevelopment. We are not expecting to see any works conducted during the 2016 season, but it does excite us as to what we will be able to provide NCC members for the 2017 season.
If you have any questions on what NCC are looking to do with this grant, please contact NCC President Graham Tribe @
In2Cricket is back in 2016!!

All Nightcliff Cricket Club player fees for 2016 are now due. Payment can be made via online or direct credit (preferable), eftpos or in cash. This week is the last week for seniors to pay discounted fees ($330) before it rises to $350.
As of the next round (7/8 May), payment of fees will become a variable along with performance and attendance at training when selections are made. As we have less senior teams this year, and positions in sides are competitive, it is recommended that all fees are paid in full this week.
Online payment details:
Nightcliff Cricket Club BSB 633000 A/C 139558365 Reference – Initials and Surname
As you can understand, we rely heavily on the player fees to allow the club for function. If you are unable to pay at this time, please notify the treasurer (Aaron Griffin) to work out a payment scheme.
