Unfortunately we already have an injury for the year. Bernie Nader has done his knee and will miss the entire season. we wish Bern a quick and successful recovery and look forward to seeing him at all matches and around the club.Another added to the injured list is Michael Barker, who is nursing a broken hand, courtesy of the final game of the footy season. We also wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to him returning to cricket in late October.

News from England is that Callum has broken the league record for wickets in a season, currently he has taken 70 wickets. Not a bad effort considering he has played the past five weeks with a broken toe. Typical of Cal, he has his own hospital ward over there, as well as the broken toe he has split his little finger and been knocked out. Apparently the ambulances know him on first name basis. He has also made over 500 runs including his first ever century. He has already been offered the Coaching role again for next season if he wants to return.. A fine effort even if I do say so myself..We look forward to his return and hope he comes back and rejoins us at West this season.

Please keep an eye out for upcoming Social Functions we expect everyone to do their best and attend these. We are putting some big efforts with the functions and want as many as we can get to them. Show your support for this great club.

Australian Rules Flying

1. Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory.

2. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the stick back, they get smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling the stick all the way back, then they get bigger again.

3. Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous.

4. it’s always better to be down here wishing you were up there than up there wishing you were down here.

5. The ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

6. The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.

7. When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided with the sky.

8. A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great' landing is one after which they can use the plane again.

9. Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.

10. You know you've landed with the wheels up if it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.

11. The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of arrival. Large angle of arrival, small probability of survival and vice versa.

12. Never let an aircraft take you somewhere your brain didn't get to five minutes earlier.

13. Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking about might be another airplane going in the opposite direction. Reliable sources also report that mountains have been known to hide out in clouds.

14. Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the number of take offs you've made.

15. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing. Unfortunately no one knows what they are.

16. You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

17. Helicopters can't fly; they're just so ugly the earth repels them.

18. If all you can see out of the window is ground that's going round and round and all you can hear is commotion coming from the passenger compartment, things are not at all as they should be.

19. In the ongoing battle between objects made of aluminium going hundreds of miles per hour and the ground going zero miles per hour, the ground has yet to lose.

20. Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgment.

21. it’s always a good idea to keep the pointy end going forward as much as possible.

22. Remember, gravity is not just a good idea. It's the law. And it's not subject to repeal.

23. The three most useless things to a pilot are the altitude above you, runway behind you, and a tenth of a second ago.

A Naughty One

An Aussie, a little man, was sitting at a bar in Sydney when this huge,
burly American guy walks in. As he passes the Aussie, he hits him on the neck knocking him to the floor. The big, burly Yank says, "That's a karate chop from Korea
Well, the Aussie gets back on his barstool and resumes drinking his beer. The burly Yank then gets up to go to the bathroom and, as he walks by the Aussie, he hits him on the other side of the neck and knocks him to the floor.

"That's a judo chop from Japan", he says.
The Aussie decides he's had enough and leaves.
A half hour later he comes back and sees the burly Yank bastard sitting at the bar. He walks up behind him and smacks him on the head, knocking him out.
The Aussie says to the bartender,

"When he wakes up mate, tell him that was a f*%#in' crowbar from Bunnings."
