Club day tribute to ladies in winter
AS THE seasons changed recently, we have some welcoming the briskness of winter, the clear days, crackling fireplaces, a little close contact while enjoying a hot cuppa.
On the other hand others withstand the seasonal trials winter delivers just counting the days until spring.
Up Wattles footy club way the frosty season is welcomed with relish buy the ladies of the club, each June the Wattles Warriors embracing the winter season with an afternoon/evening of celebrations for the fairer sex.
It's a time to celebrate the commitment and loyalty along with the countless hours of voluntary work provided by the ladies connected with the sporting club, but also a celebration open to all ladies that are keen for an afternoon of leisure, entertainment, wonderful food and a few social drinks.
This Saturday Wattles are hosting their 2014 Ladies in Winter function at the Platz Oval complex in conjunction with the Warriors Toowoomba Rugby League Round 10 clashes with Toowoomba's Southern Suburbs Tigers.
It's a massive day at Wattles home pad, the senior and junior club's combining to host a Super Saturday, rugby league footy from 9am until around 8.30pm.
Wattles juniors will match up against the Border Bears in Under 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16, while in the Under 7 and 9 grades their opponents are Warwick's Eastern Suburbs Hornets.
The Wattles senior club fixtures will commence at 3.45pm when they take on Southern Suburbs in Under 18 grade, reserve grade at 5.10pm and the first grade clash kicking off at 6.30 pm.
"Ladies in Winter" organiser, Wattles 2014 Ambassador Tarla Brennan, is confident the function will be successful.
"It's a day our ladies can enjoy themselves, socialise, and get pampered while enjoying the footy and some great entertainment by popular local entertainer Luke Nash.
"It may be a trifle cool, which is to be expected, but that should encourage some great winter outfits on the night," smiled Tarla.
The Ladies Day, celebrating our rugby league lady's contribution to our great game, commences at 3.45 pm in the "Winter White Marquee".
"We have social drinks of choice including some divine champers, delightful and dainty finger food, live entertainment by Nash and gifts for the best dressed 'Lady in Winter'."
