Polocrosse grounds fly into fu­ture success

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

THE Monto polocrosse grounds may not have been host to a polocrosse car­ni­val this year, but the success of the Monto Fly-In was pleas­ing and lo­cal groups had the op­por­tu­nity to cater for vis­i­tors.

The com­mit­tee hopes the grounds and fa­cil­i­ties will con­tinue to be used in fu­ture years.

North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil in­stalled three-phase power to the grounds and its fa­cil­i­ties have been up­graded sig­nif­i­cantly, at no cost to the club.

In re­cent years the club has strug­gled to find enough­mem­ber­sto give the time re­quired for the prepa­ra­tion of a car­ni­val.

The ma­jor­ity of mem­bers de­cided the club’s fully paid lease should be re­newed but that could com­pro­mise ne­go­ti­a­tions with the aero club and their plans to im­prove fa­cil­i­ties.

Bring­ing ben­e­fits to the com­mu­nity is al­ways a high pri­or­ity and the club has long been proud of its do­na­tions back to the Monto com­mu­nity.

The com­mit­tee wants to wish the in­com­ing of­fice bear­ers ev­ery success in strength­en­ing the club and the great sport of polocrosse.
