UPDATE 3/8/20: Wayne Dyer’s funeral will be held at 2pm on Thursday 6th August 2020 at the Allambe Memorial Park, 129 Nerang Broadbeach Road, Nerang in the Parkview Chapel.
Some sad news to announce with the passing of Wayne Dyer earlier this morning after a battle with cancer. The Dyer family have been active members of our club and Wayne in particular, a wonderful contributor to the Gold Coast baseball community. This includes as a past President of the Runaway Bay Dolphins Baseball Club, numerous terms on the Surfers Paradise Baseball committee, an umpire of many games and the inaugural Treasurer of the Gold Coast Baseball Officials Association. Our thoughts are with Wayne’s family Petrece, Brandon and Jenna.
Nothing to report, with over 200mm falling over the weekend, the rain well and truly won with all games washed out.
100 Club results:
Week 1 winner: #46 Michelle Pratt
Week 2 winner: #99 Jono Perkins
