Spring Carnival

Coral Cove has reached its cap, and if players want to nominate to play in the full WBSC, only 8 games at 4 venues can be played: Bargara, Bundaberg, Maryborough and Hervey Bay. The Best 7 of these games will count toward overall prizes. Players that have nominated for daily games only at Coral Cove, will be on the reserve list.

Players on reserve list have these choices:

  1. Stay on reserve list and keep fingers crossed. Refunds will be organized after the event. Players will be contacted by email after the nominations have closed.
  2. Come off the reserve list and receive a full refund
  3. Come off the reserve list and join an alternative 2 day competition arranged at Bundaberg for the overflow of players at Coral Cove. Fees would be directly transferred to Bundaberg by Treasurer and nominations would be given by Convenor to Bundaberg Captain. This is not part of the WBSC overall event, but a separate competition.

Please contact the convenor on wbsc.convenor@outlook.com with your intentions.

Thank you, Wendy Mathiesen, Convenor
