Club heads back to the 60s
THE who's who of the 1960s was partying hard in Warwick at the weekend, with go-go boots, mini skirts and tie-dyed threads all making a comeback for the evening.
The Collegians Junior Rugby League Club held the '60s-themed bash at the Cowboys clubhouse on Friday evening.
Treasurer Kelly Reardon said the event was intended to be a great night out for players' parents and sponsors.
"We had a bye at the weekend and thought it would be a great way for everyone to get out and have a good time," she said.
Mrs Reardon said the night was a hit with every hippy who walked through the door.
"It was a wonderful night. It was very relaxing and everyone got into the mood and the swing of the '60s theme and dressed up," she said.
"Costumes ranged from the more conservative '60s outfits like Jackie O, to the really hippy look."
Talented Warwick musician Phil Vellacott helped authenticate the theme and kept partygoers on the dance floor with his '60s set list.
During the night a commemorative Broncos football signed by Darren Lockyer was put under the hammer.
The undisclosed amount paid for the ball will be donated to Collegians coach Brendan McIvor, who recently lost part of his leg in a farming accident.
The ball was donated to the cause by Westpac's Warwick branch.
Mr McIvor has been a member of the club for the past 30 years and is the current U9s coach.
