Double points (6 for 1st, 4 for 2nd and 2 for 3rd) will apply to the Teams Relay, Family Relay, Tunnel Ball and Tug-O-War.

The starter cannot wait for late entries. It is not necessary to enter before the event – just be ready to move to the starting point when the announcer calls for starters.

The fish fry will be held between 5-7pm and the sports events between 8-11pm. A program of events will be available on the evening.

Please contact Lucy Kuilman or Sandy Beaumont on (02) 6563 2066 if you would like further information or are interested in assisting.

Please note there will be no changes to the program on the night.

During the evening, there will be an opportunity to give to a collection to help defray expenses.

Assistance is always required on a night like this. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Lucy Kuilman or Sandy Beaumont.

 It can get quite cool at the sports ground, so bring a jacket.
