Horse trials and polocrosse plans for the year

THE first major event for the Warwick Horse Trials Club this year will be on March 18-19 at Morgan Park.

The club will then hold its 21st birthday celebrations with an event on July 15-16 and finally hold another two-star event on September 30-October 2.

There will also be a jump day and open day at the club.

The horse trials club has brought Olympians galore to town in line with its reputation as the best facility for eventing in Queensland and one of the best in the nation.

Mike Reed is president, Kathy Jones vice president, Andrea Osborne secretary and Tiffany Reed treasurer. Eleanor Osborne is on the committee as facility co-ordinator and Tracey Sexton is membership co-ordinator.

Tracey was last year's Condamine Sports Club Volunteer of the Year for her work with Riding for the Disabled, the horse trials club and Warwick Show.

Polocrosse change

WESTERN Australian player B.J. Thomas will be in Warwick on April 21-23 to play for Australia against South Africa in three polocrosse internationals.

He replaces Albury Holbrook player Abbott Grills who withdrew from the men's team.

B.J. travelled from Western Australia to play club polocrosse at Morgan Park in April last year and in the national inter-squad challenge in August.

Cooper Cup

THE Cunningham Polocrosse Club will host the Cooper Cup as part of its carnival on April 8-9 at Bony Mountain. The cup is between Queensland and New Zealand teams.
