OVER 60 CARNIVAL 2018
Once again a very successful Qld Masters OVer 60 CArnival was held from 20 - 22 April. There were 116 players allocated to 8 teams. The guys played 3 games Saturday and 2 on Sunday befoe the Qld teams were announced.
The oldest player was 81 years old and there were 8 new 60 yr old players joining the ranks of the senior players.
Hervey Bay Hockey again provided a fantastic venue and pleasant friendly locals to man the canteen and BBQ etc all weekend.
Thank you Hervey Bay especially for disrupting your weekend fixtures to allow the oldies to play a little later than usual to avoid the heat.
