Do you know some­one mak­ing a dif­fer­ence?


Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS - JA­SON O’PRAY

THE cur­tain may have fallen on our ma­jor footy codes for this year but coun­cil is still kick­ing goals. We’ve now se­cured four AFL clubs for train­ing camps ahead of next sea­son, with Carl­ton the lat­est to com­mit to the Coast.

The Blues will be here in mid-De­cem­ber for a week of train­ing, with a com­mu­nity open ses­sion still to be con­firmed. Pre­miers Rich­mond, the Western Bull­dogs and Mel­bourne will also head here for pre-sea­son train­ing camps be­fore next year’s the sea­son.

It’s not just our fan­tas­tic fa­cil­i­ties at Fish­er­man’s Rd and won­der­ful weather that’s bring­ing them back. The last five teams who’ve won the AFL pre­mier­ship vis­ited the Sun­shine Coast for a pre-sea­son camp.

NRL and Su­per Rugby will also hit Sun­shine Coast Sta­dium in Fe­bru­ary, with three fan­tas­tic pre-sea­son games locked in. The ACT Brumbies will play the Chiefs from New Zealand on Fe­bru­ary 14, while the Bull­dogs will meet the Raiders in an NRL trial on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 17 and the Gold Coast Ti­tans will clash with the War­riors the fol­low­ing Satur­day on Fe­bru­ary 24.

What an awe­some triple-header. Tick­ets will go on sale in early De­cem­ber via sun­shinecoast­sta­dium.


NEXT year we’ll cel­e­brate the 10th an­niver­sary of the Sun­shine Coast Aus­tralia Day Awards. If you know a per­son, com­mu­nity group or or­gan­i­sa­tion mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to life on the Coast, give them the recog­ni­tion they de­serve by nom­i­nat­ing them for an award. You don’t have to be fa­mous to be nom­i­nated for our Aus­tralia Day Awards, we’re look­ing for the un­sung he­roes. Nom­i­na­tions close De­cem­ber 4 and you can nom­i­nate on­line via coun­cil’s web­site.
