AR­ROW En­ergy held their an­nual Bron­cos Fan Day at Dalby Leagues Club on Satur­day.

Bron­cos mar­ket­ing man­ager Kurt Rus­sell said it was great to see so many peo­ple.

“Dalby is a key area for the club so its awe­some to see this many peo­ple come out and wel­come the team,” Mr Rus­sell said.

“Play­ers like An­drew McCul­lough get­ting swamped all day, he’s ob­vi­ous quite a star out here so its awe­some to see.”

Ar­row En­ergy’s Vice Pres­i­dent of ex­ter­nal re­la­tions and ten­ure man­age­ment Lisa El­der de­scribed the day as fan­tas­tic.

“We’ve had around 1600 peo­ple here to­day,” Ms El­der said.

“Its just great to see.” “Lots of fam­i­lies talk to us about not hav­ing had the chance to go to Sun­corp Sta­dium in Bris­bane and to be able to see the whole team here has been fan­tas­tic.”

“(The Bron­cos) have been out and about; we’ve had them out do­ing var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties from skir­mish to look­ing at the new LifeF­light AW139 Air­craft which we’ve flown in to­day.

“They’ve also been face paint­ing, we’ve had them in the tra­di­tional own­ers tent look­ing at some of the indige­nous arte­facts from the his­tory of the Western Downs re­gional area, and they’ve joined ev­ery­one for lunch so we’ve had a great day.”

The PCYC had their skir­mish equip­ment out and the Dalby Leagues Club and the Donut Man kept crowds fed through­out the day. MORE PHO­TOS ON PGS 18-19


TRUE FAN: Lu­cas and Harry Harms, from Kumbia, meet some of the Bron­cos at the Ar­row En­ergy-or­gan­ised fan day.
