Dallarnil sports carnival gets a change of day
FOR the first time in its 96-year history, the Dallarnil Sports Carnival, normally held on the Queen’s Birthday Monday, will be held on Saturday.
Due to the State Government change to public holidays, the committee was forced to find an alternative date to continue the tradition.
President RodWilson said after the inquiries received, the day may turn out to be a better option.
“The 80mm of rain received on Sunday will lay the dust and soften the ground a bit,” he said.
“If it fines up between now and Saturday it should be a great day.”
The Dallarnil Sports Carnival is a family fun day whether competing or watching.
Where else can you go and watch pony club and open horse events, athletics and woodchopping from one vantage point?
MrWilson said Brian Duggan would once again run the rodeo.
“There aren’t enough volunteers to go round,” he said.
“Everyone was impressed with the great job he did last year.
“It is a cost to the committee but a rodeo attracts the crowd.”
There will be market stalls and displays for patrons to browse through and the Dallarnil State School P&C will run their popular barbecue from the old bar area.
MrWilson said it is hoped to run the food and bar into the night while the crowd watches the end of the rodeo under lights.
“There will be rides and slides for the younger generation,” he said. Camping is available. For more information phone RodWilson on 4127 7239.
The chips will fly on Saturday at the annual Dallarnil Sports Carnival.
