OVER 60 CARNIVAL 2018
The 6th Annual Qld Masters Over 60 Carnival will be held in Hervey Bay from 20 - 22 April 2018.
Hervey Bay Hockey have been kind enough to allow the Over 60 championships to be moved later in the year following requests from players. Hervey Bay Hockey have cancelled fixtures for the weekend to allow the fields to be used for the Over 60 Carnival.
Registrations are now open - to read more information about this carnival please use the link below.
This year all players will receive a souvenir playing T shirt and these need to be ordered in time for printing etc to be completed before the carnival.
Therefore: No late registrations can be accepted.
To register CLICK HERE , complete the registration form and pay the amount due by 29 March 2018.
If you intend coming to this carnival, you might like to book your accommodation in Hervey Bay as April is a very popular time in the bay, especially as it will still be NSW school holidays and immediatley after the Commonwealth Games.
As usual, the Carnival will be used to select the Over 60,65,70 and 75 Qld teams to represent our State at the National Championships - see below)
