Pine Hills Lightning Baseball Club Annual General Meeting - 7PM Friday 27th May. Downstairs Club Bunya.

All members are invited to attend the AGM. The club is in need of a Secretary for the coming season. If you are intending to continue your current role at the club, or are thinking about taking on a new role it would be useful to let the commitee know prior to the meeting so it runs as smoothly as possible. Please refer to the 2015 - 2016 Management Committee List for current Committee members.


Big shout out to Paul Hardie and BJ Ball Papers for covering the unexpected cost of a late season need for more game balls. In our last regular season weekend of games we had run out of balls and Paul through BJ Ball Papers offered to pay for this purchase. This is on top of BJ Balls on going sponsorship of Game balls. Thanks for helping out the club.

We are hoping for a big supporter base this weekend as the Ipswich Musketeers have recruited a number of ex Bandits players, so we need to show up and be vocal to help our guys to get some comp points. The competition has shrunk to only 7 Major A clubs this season, as Wests & Narangba no longer qualified. The Major A game on Sunday will also be Live Streamed across the globe so wear your club shirts & caps. See you at the ball park
