We're celebrating our 90th Anniversary. Keep your eyes peeled for more information on our big night!

Invite your friends and family to keep them in the loop!

  • NBCC’s 90th Anniversary is less than a fortnight away and we are pleased to inform you that the event is a sell-out! With over 210 attendees, from all facets of club, we look forward to celebrating the Past 90 years, the Present Success and Future Endeavours. Be sure to arrive prior to 7.00pm to take advantage of the one-hour complimentary canapes and beverages. You will also have the opportunity to review (and bid on) many of the silent auction items on display. Doors open at 8.00pm. There will be a table listing and floor plan for you to reference your table. Highlights of the evening include: SILENT AUCTION ITEMS – SUMAC (CLOSES 10.10PM) There are many fantastic Silent Auction Items for you to bid on at NBCC’s 90th Anniversary including accommodation vouchers, football jumpers, sporting memorabilia and much more. For a listing of the items please see here: https://nbcc90thgala.blogspot.com.au/p/2017-auction-items.html Once the Silent Auction concludes around 10pm, successful bidders will have their bid sheet placed on their table. They will then need to take their form to the cashier at the back of the room to pay/claim their item before leaving the venue. LIVE AUCTION ITEMS – MAIA (STARTS AT 10.25PM) The live auction will commence at 10.25pm within MAIA. There are significant items up for auction including a MicroCloud Mattress and bedding pack, Sorrento Holiday House, Custom numberplates, signed Australian Cricket bats + much more. There will be reserves on the items which are approximately 2/3 of their “retail” value. For a listing of the items please see here: https://nbcc90thgala.blogspot.com.au/p/live-auction-items.html NBCC LUCKY ENVELOPE DRAW We will run a “Lucky Envelope” draw which will begin around the time everyone is seated. Every table has an envelope with their table number on it. To take part the envelope must contain $200 cash (i.e. whole table puts in $20 a head or 4 put in $50 etc etc). If members on your table wish to contribute to more than one envelope, please speak to Jemma Binney. Envelopes will be collected at 8.30pm. Throughout the night we will draw 4 table numbers at a time and announce them - if your table number is drawn you are out of the draw. Last three remaining tables get 30%, 15% and 10% of the prize pool with the balance to NBCC. There are 21 tables at the event - if all tables participate the pool will be $4,200 (i.e 1st prize $1260, 2nd Prize $630, 3rd Prize $420). RAFFLE Stapled to the back of every attendee’s program will be a raffle ticket for the 90th Anniversary. After main course we will announce the three individual winners of the raffle. Be sure to have your ticket handy at this point in time to ensure you are able to claim your prize. GUEST SPEAKER PRESENTATIONS We are thrilled to have Andrew Leoncelli as our Master of Ceremony for the 90th Anniversary. Andrew played juniors and seniors with NBCC before he was swept into the AFL scene. NBCC also welcomes Andrew Ingleton (former 1st XI Captain) who will deliver un update on the future of Cricket in Victoria. Andrew has recently been appointed Executive General Manager at Cricket Victoria. Finally, we are extremely excited to have Angela Pippos (Sports Journalist & Radio Presenter) deliver a keynote presentation on ‘Women’s Cricket – Grassroots, Growth and the next Generation’.
