Cunningham to field seven carnival teams

POLOCROSSE: Host club Cunningham will field seven teams in the polocrosse carnival at the Bony Mountain Recreation Reserve this weekend.

Club secretary Robyn Cooper said five open and two junior teams would play from Cunningham.

"One of the junior teams might play in the open competition, it just depends on what junior teams are nominated from other clubs," Cooper said.

"Most of our top players are on young horses at the moment so we will nominate our best team in B-grade. Some Cunningham players have left their best horses out for a little longer as many were in training for 10 to 11 months last year.

"These horses are in training now and will be ready for carnivals from June and then the state championships at Chinchilla on the first weekend in September.

Teams are nominated through the Queensland Polocrosse Association and close at 9am on the Thursday before each carnival.

The weekend will start with a gold coin sausage sizzle on Friday at the clubhouse to raise funds for Cancer Council Queensland.

Play starts at 8.30am Saturday and 8am Sunday.

The Cunningham club will put on a hot dinner and entertainment with Krazy Days Karaoke on Saturday night which is open to players and members of the public.
