Dal­larnil sports car­ni­val gets a change of day

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

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.
