Eagles fly into town with packed schedule of events
Nic Naitanui and Adam Simpson will be star attractions when the West Coast Eagles come to town for the first time since 2004 on February 8 and 9.
They will be making the rounds, along with some of the best of last year’s grand finalists as part of the Eagles’ AFL Community Camp.
A free public autograph session at Digger Daws Oval at 4.30pm followed by a coaching forum with the Subiaco talent development squad will be the main draws on the first day.
The players and coaches have a packed schedule in KalgoorlieBoulder, including trips to every local primary school, a meeting with players from 2015 Goldfields Football League premiers Mines Rovers Football Club and a monster coaching clinic with about 160 kids from Kambalda and Coolgardie at Digger Daws Oval.
General admission tickets are also on sale for the sportsman’s night on the 8th and corporate breakfast on the 9th, both at the Overland Motel, for $50 a person.
WA Football Commission regional development officer Gemma Harrison will be in St Barbara’s Square today from 9.30am to 11.30am to sell tickets to the sportsman’s night and corporate breakfast.
The Fremantle Dockers came to Kalgoorlie-Boulder in 2011, the last time an AFL community camp was held in the region.
