Dal­larnil gears up for ac­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

IF in­quiries are any­thing to go by, Dal­larnil Sports Club is set for bumper horse events at its 93rd sports car­ni­val on Mon­day.

An ac­tion-packed pro­gram is on of­fer with tro­phies and prize money of more than $4000.

There will be ath­let­ics, lawn­mower races, wood­chop and hack classes plus open and chil­dren’s horse events along with rodeo, li­censed bar and weight guess­ing.

Pres­i­dent Max Pearce said com­mon sense had pre­vailed and the Queen’s Birth­day hol­i­day had re­mained.

“There are just so many func­tions in the re­gion it is dif­fi­cult to get a new date with­out clash­ing,” he said.

Lawn mower rac­ing has been added for the past cou­ple of years and com­peti­tors will come from as far as the Sun­shine Coast.

The day starts at 9am with the open and chil­dren’s horse events fol­lowed by the ath­let­ics.

The cross coun­try has been re­placed with an all ages dis­tance race, twice around the track for both males and fe­males.

Ad­mis­sion on Mon­day is $9 for adults, $5 for pen­sion­ers and $2 for chil­dren over five.

The sports dance is back on Satur­day night and the Dal­larnil Sports Girl and Ju­nior Sports Girl will be cho­sen.
