Rugby league car­ni­val

OVER the week­end we had the op­por­tu­nity of trav­el­ling to Pros­per­ine to at­tend the Paul Bow­man Chal­lenge un­der 9’s rugby league car­ni­val.

One thou­sand un­der 9 footy play­ers, a to­tal of 72 teams rep­re­sented, along with their fam­ily mem­bers, at­tended this huge car­ni­val.

Fam­ily mem­bers of Charles Smith and Thomas Brown, mem­bers of the Gracemere Ju­nior League and Lo­gan Reynolds, a mem­ber of the Cler­mont Rugby League, at­tended the car­ni­val and they saw some great foot­ball played.

As a spec­ta­tor we have a lot of ta­lented foot­ball play­ers in our midst.

All teams played six games each with the top 16 teams go­ing to the fi­nals.

Whilst in the trop­ics, some sight­see­ing was held, see­ing how the Air­lie Beach re­gion is re­cov­er­ing from the cy­clone that bat­tered them a cou­ple of years ago.

Fi­nally, it was great to see Bon­nie Bryant, Bon­nie hap­pened to be at the car­ni­val and she caught up with the Smith and Brown fam­i­lies.

Drought in­for­ma­tion ses­sion

LAST Wed­nes­day a Drought In­for­ma­tion Ses­sion was held at the Wowan RSL Hall or­gan­ised by the Dept of Agri­cul­ture, Forestry and Fish­eries.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives were there to an­swer any ques­tions re­lat­ing to the drought and other is­sues.

A great at­ten­dance of lo­cals and vis­i­tors were on hand and ap­pre­ci­ated the in­for­ma­tion that was avail­able to them.

Melodies at the MPC

NEXT Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 2, the Wowan/Dululu Com­mu­nity Vol­un­teer Group will be hold­ing their “Melodies at the MPC” func­tion at the MPC cen­tre.

The morn­ing gets un­der way with morn­ing tea served from 9.30am with en­ter­tain­ment fol­low­ing.

The month of Oc­to­ber we have the plea­sure of hav­ing Rachel, Barry and Charles Smith en­ter­tain­ing, it will be lovely to hear Rachel and her sons en­ter­tain­ing.

Once again our com­mu­nity is so lucky to have so much tal­ent, so come and en­joy a morn­ing out­ing with friends.

Wowan Golf Club

THE Monthly Medal was played on Sun­day and the win­ner was Nathan Kaper­nick with a 64 nett, run­ner up was John We­ber with a 65 nett.

The monthly putting medal was tied with Daryl Myles and Terry Vick­ers both record­ing 26 putts This Sun­day is a club com­pe­ti­tion with draw time 12.30pm.

The golf course is ex­tremely dry at present but in great con­di­tion thanks to the course main­te­nance vol­un­teers, but it was funny (not) to see the kan­ga­roos en­joy­ing the golf course too the other af­ter­noon.

They were look­ing for a bit of green pick, not that there is much of that any­where, only the grass greens.

Birth­day greetings

HAPPY birth­day wishes are ex­tended to An­drea Voltz, Janelle Boto, Judy Ramm, Tony Fenech, Shirley Arm­strong and Ja­cob Cur­tis. Have a great day ev­ery­one.

How the year is fly­ing!
