CUNNINGHAM will hold its August polocrosse carnival this weekend at the Bony Mountain Recreation Grounds.

The club has attracted 43 teams and the carnival is two weeks before the IOR Rose Bowl carnival at Morgan Park. Players will come from as far as Albury and Dirranbandi.

There will be Queensland umpire's training in Toowoomba on September 28-29.

Most states are in the process of selecting teams for next year's nationals on March 30-April 5 at Ballarat.

Racing on

THE Warwick Turf Club has a TAB meeting coming up on Tuesday, August 20.

Most of the club meetings are on a Saturday but turf club president Phil Grant never says no to any additional meetings on one of the best courses in Queensland.

Board member

WARWICK racing commentator Anthony Collins has been elected to the board of the Toowoomba Turf Club.

Collins is a commentator for Sky and travels to many track down the New South Wales coast as well as in Queensland.

The other committee member with a Warwick connection is club president Kent Woodford.

He is originally from Wheatvale and played cricket with the Wallopers before moving to Toowoomba.

Mt Isa Rodeo

MT Isa and Warwick are the only four days rodeos in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association.

There are 11 riders from Warwick in action this week at Mt Isa, including bronc rider Kyle Hamilton who has a connection to the town.

The top 15 at the end of the season on September 30 will qualify for the Warwick Rodeo APRA National Finals on October 24-27 at the Warwick Rodeo.
