BENDIGO District Cricket Association clubs will get the chance to have their say on the future of the competition at a summit tomorrow morning.
The BDCA summit, to be held at the City of Greater Bendigo offices, will focus on topics including the future scheduling of lower grade grand finals, the Twenty20 competition, representative games, junior cricket and Sunday matches.
“The clubs have received a list of what we’ll look at on Sunday, so they’ve had a week to discuss it and come back to us with their ideas,” BDCA president Wayne Walsh said yesterday.
“There will be nothing confirmed as to what we do moving forward on Sunday morning, it’s about starting the discussion and putting some ideas out there for the future.
“All clubs will have the opportunity to have their say, as well as the umpires and pennant committee, and we’ve also invited Damien Dunlop from Cricket Victoria to attend.
“We feel that cricket is going well in Bendigo, but what can we do over the next three to five years to make sure we keep taking the game forward?
“To me, it’s good governance to ensure we’re on track with the clubs, and they all understand where the board is going.
“It’s going to be an open forum, so we feel it’s going to be a very productive morning.
“I’m sure there will be some good ideas put forward that will ensure Bendigo cricket keeps heading in the right direction.”
Tomorrow’s BDCA summit will start at 9am.
