50 years of Shell Cup Polocrosse
FOR horse lovers and others alike, get down to Morgan Park for an adrenaline-fuelled weekend of polocrosse.
The Fourth Barastoc Interstate Series is being held in conjunction with the Shell Cup Club Competition celebrating its 50th year in 2010.
Thousands of people are expected to turn out to see the Maroons take on NSW and New Zealand along with such other states as Victoria and Western Australia.
Leading the Queensland side will be Warwick resident and captain of men’s Barastoc, Michael Dillon, under the expertise of Coach Paul McGrath.
Polocrosse is a fast and exciting sport where you can get close to the action.
Spectators have the opportunity to develop an interest in the adrenalin-pumping sport and horses.
Many people are also attracted to polocrosse for its family-orientated nature, as well as a reason to keep fit and healthy.
The Barastoc event will begin on this Friday at 2pm and will conclude at 8pm.
The next day it starts at 9am and runs to 9pm for a full day of entertainment.
On Sunday events start at 8am with finals commencing around midday.
The Warwick Polocrosse Club believed there was a need for more interstate competition and so offered to host the event in conjunction with their Rose Bowl Club Championships.
They were delighted when Barastoc accepted their invitation to be the major sponsor of the series.
The teams will compete in men’s, women’s, intermediate mixed, junior mixed and the masters over 50 competition.
The Barastoc Series will be held at Morgan Park, Warwick on April 9, 10 and 11.
General entry for the day is $10 with free admission for children under 15.
