Whitsunday 12 a side carnival

Brothers and Sisters of the Sherrin,

           It is Easter this weekend and we look forward to our trip to Airlie Beach to run in their great carnival the Whitsunday 12 a side Tropical Cup. But this year is special as TC Debbie and the destruction around that event we all would be aware of and the need for us to get down. This is all part of the recovery process and the sooner they get back to normal the better it is for the community. Accommodation will have some challenges but Matty and Kim have put out details of access to a house which I sent out last week. You can camp at the ground which is another option and of course there will be motels that are open for business. But we need you to get there and lets buy a drink for our Whitsunday mates and ask are you OK!


   Now if you are intending to just go down Saturday let me know as they normally pick the teams Friday night at the Bowls club. There is an entry fee so bring cash I think it's about $50-$60?? But there are some great prises. I will ask the boys if we need to bring anything special down and let you know. There will be games so if you need any strapping bring it with you. Bring some spare to help the local guys out. Saturday will be games and Sunday Finals with the footy rapped up by lunch time.


   We have some umpiring training going on so if you are interested in helping out there let me know. This is a case of all pitching in guys and generally brings the best out of the group so whatever your plans are make sure it includes going to Airlie this Easter. If you have any questions let me know. In the meantime Legends stay safe and talk soon.
