Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

RUGBY LEAGUE: The In­trust Su­per Cup is al­ready mak­ing its mark on the Bur­nett, with ho­tels and car­a­van parks com­pletely booked out ahead of the game this week­end.

Mun­dub­bera Tigers pres­i­dent Cameron MacDon­ald said a lot of peo­ple had in­di­cated they planned to at­tend.

“I’ve heard that there is a lot of peo­ple from neigh­bour­ing towns from the South Bur­nett, Bund­aberg, Mary­bor­ough who will be in at­ten­dance,” MacDon­ald said.

“We’ve also got eight Men of League rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Fraser Coast who will be help­ing us pre­pare for the day. “We’ve got two can­teens and two bars that will be open on the day.”

The games will help show­case the North Bur­nett to a big­ger au­di­ence. Life mem­ber for the Mun­dub­bera Tigers Gavin Ford said the games would bring good in­vest­ment to the re­gion.

“I think be­ing a tele­vised game, it’s good ad­ver­tise­ment for our area and hope­fully we can show­case to the vis­i­tors what a friendly town Mun­dub­bera is and what it’s well known for,” Ford said.

Mun­dub­bera Bowls Club will host a meet and greet on Satur­day night, sure to pack the venue. Three Rivers Car­a­van Park in Mun­dub­bera is com­pletely booked out and owner Sher­rie Bre­itkopf said it’s a great way of keep­ing lo­cals in busi­ness.

“It’s a great way to bring new vis­i­tors to our re­gion and to show­case the won­der­ful town and com­mu­nity that we have,” Bre­itkopf said.

“We’ve got many book­ings for the week­end which is fan­tas­tic and it’d be nice to have a few rooms up our sleeve.

“The ones who are com­ing to the foot­ball are stay­ing more than one night which helps out the lo­cal busi­nesses and gives back to the re­gion.” Most of the ho­tels and mo­tels are com­pletely booked out, with some spare rooms avail­able on Sun­day night.”
