Dallarnil gears up for action
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.
CHIPS FLY: Woodchoppers will be in action.
