Mel­bourne Cup sweep tick­ets are sell­ing fast

Chinchilla News - - LIFE -

MUR­RAY Sturgess was our guest speaker at last week’s meet­ing. Mur­ray is the cur­rent Chin­chilla Polocrosse Club Pres­i­dent and he told us about the re­cent Queens­land Polocrosse Ti­tles. Mur­ray said that there were 458 horses un­der sad­dle at the of­fi­cial open­ing pa­rade.

Polocrosse is an Aus­tralian game and is a com­bi­na­tion of La Crosse and Aus­tralian Rules Football but is played on horse­back. It is now played all over the world in places such as Ire­land, South Africa, USA, New Zealand and many other coun­tries.

The lo­cal Chin­chilla Club com­menced in 1956 and held their first games at Burn­cluith. The Club later moved to where its grounds are now and they have gone from strength to strength.

Get your Teams to­gether be­cause the Chin­chilla State High School In­ter­act Club is get­ting ready to hold their Run for Refugees Fundraiser.

This event is be­ing held at Clover Hill Ranch on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 14.

Why not come along and par­tic­i­pate in their Colour Run 2017. You can gather in teams of four or run in­di­vid­u­ally over ei­ther the 2km or 4km course.

All pro­ceeds from the event will sup­port UNICEF’S Syria Cri­sis Ap­peal and tick­ets can be pur­chased for $10 at the High School or at the gate from 8.30am.

They are hop­ing for your sup­port for this very wor­thy cause.

Have you pur­chased a ticket in the Ro­tary Club Mel­bourne Cup Sweep yet? Our club is sell­ing the tick­ets for $2 each. in the main street and also at IGA and from what I hear these tick­ets are sell­ing fast. “You have to be in it to win it” they tell me.

Good luck to ev­ery­one who has pur­chased a ticket. Don’t for­get that we will be draw­ing the Sweep at the RSL Me­mo­rial Club on Mon­day night Novem­ber 6 at ap­prox­i­mately 7.30pm in the main bar and you are cer­tainly wel­come to come along and join in.

Every ticket that draws a horse will au­to­mat­i­cally win $20 and hope­fully you may even get a place.

Quote of the Week: Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.
