Proposed November 2020 Masters Tournament Cancelled

It is with some sadness and deep regret that the continuation of COVID-19 around Australia has forced us not to proceed with the planned Pan Pac Masters Games optional event in November 2020.

As you know I have fielded quite a few positive responses about staging the event, but as the past months have progressed, so has the impact of the virus and the level of team withdrawal or inability to form teams has increased.

Recent state border closures and the uncertainty of the future for people all around the country has now confirmed that we will not have adequate time to get the event off the ground this year.  I believed that a 3 month notice period to all of the baseball community was reasonable, therefore we have made the decision not to proceed now.

I am in regular contact with Qld Events Management and there is still no formal confirmation or otherwise of PPMG being held in 2021 and again in 2022, but I will keep you all informed of developments as they come to hand.

Thank you all for your positive interest in this option, I very much look forward to seeing you at the next opportunity we can host a Masters baseball event.

Clearly, the COVID-19  has beaten us this year.

Tony McPhail
President – Surfers Paradise Baseball Club

Vale Wayne Dyer

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.
