Premiership reunions, free programs for the next generation of cricketers and a huge party are all on the agenda as the Western Suburbs Plovers prepare the celebrate to club's 75th birthday this season.
Plovers president Andrew Trappel said the good news was that the shadow of the current Covid lockdown should be lifted for the vast majority of events planned during the 2021-22 season.
However, one key date which may be affected is the start of the season and the club's season launch scheduled for Saturday, October 9, at major sponsor the Bradford Hotel.
"The season had been set to start on October 9 but that is still up in the air," Trappel said.
"I wouldn't be surprised if they push back that start date to allow the winter sports to complete their seasons and finals depending on when we get back to some sort of normality.
"We've obviously got a fair few things planned starting with the season launch, pending Covid,
"The 75th Anniversary Dinner will feature a high-profile special guest.
"We're keeping the special guest's identity pretty close to our chest at the moment as it's a pretty big name and we only have so many tickets we can sell."
Trappel said one of the most pleasing aspects of the celebrations was the inclusion of juniors.
"We've got free junior cricket essentially for all our juniors this season as a bit of a thank you to our kids, which I think is a pretty cool idea," he said.
The club aims to run Junior Blasters (5-7), Master Blasters (7-10) as well as hardball cricket competitions the Girls Sixers League and Junior Cricket from under-11s to 16s.
Trappel said dates for key events would firm up but the 75th anniversary dinner and reunion dinners for the 1981-82 major-minor premiership and 2011-12 premiership would be held in February.
The 1981-82 premiership team, captained by Trappel's father Warren, holds a special place in Plovers history as it completed the club's first back-to-back major-minor premiership after Wests also won the double in 1980-81.
"It will be their 40th anniversary and the 10th anniversary of the 2011-12 premiership which I captained," Trappel said.
"We'll be hoping for all the players from those teams to make the reunion and 75th dinner."
Other activities during the season include a trivia night and announcement of teams of the past decade and the 2000s.
"We have a very good social media presence and update our Facebook Page almost daily so as details come through we will be keeping people up to date," Trappel said.
"We'd urge anyone who know of anyone involved in the club over the years who may live outside the district to get in touch with them and let them know what is happening."
The club's on-field preparations have also been hampered with a number of training sessions cancelled because of the lockdown and captains still to be named.
