Melbourne Cup sweep tickets are selling fast
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.
