Webcke for sports expo
LOCAL clubs and businesses involved in sport, exercise, active recreation, health and nutrition are invited to nominate a free stall at Douglas Shire Council’s inaugural Sport & Rec Expo.
Queensland State of Origin legend Shane Webcke will be special guest speaker at the Douglas Shire Sport & Rec Expo, to be held at the Port Douglas Community Hall on February 4.
Mayor Julia Leu said the expo will inform the local community about various sport and recreational activities and services available in the Douglas Shire while promoting health, wellbeing and active lifestyles for families and individuals of all ages.
“There will be information stalls, demonstrations, speakers and come and try sessions in what is a fantastic opportunity to promote club sign-on days, upcoming seasons, membership and volunteering opportunities,” Mayor Leu said.
“It’s also a great opportunity to network with other clubs and businesses, and it’s free for clubs, eligible businesses and participants to attend.
“We’re very lucky to have so many fabulous local sporting groups, organisations and associated businesses in the Douglas Shire and it will be great to see them all featured under one roof.
“It’s also excellent to attract Queensland Origin great Shane Webcke for the Expo, Shane grew up in regional Queensland and he’s an inspirational public speaker who is very passionate about grassroots sport and the importance of being active for both your social and physical wellbeing, particularly in smaller communities.”
The Northern Pride will also join Webcke at the expo to meet and greet fans.
Stall nomination forms are available from Council’s Mossman Administration Building, the Port Douglas Community Hub in Mowbray St and on Council’s website.
To make sure your club or business secures a free spot at the Expo, make sure your nomination form is completed and returned to Council by 4.30pm on Friday 6 January 2016.
