VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR: Warwick Polocrosse up for big win
POLOCROSSE : Warwick Polocrosse is saddling up for the Queensland Sport awards after receiving nominations in three categories.
The 2019 Adina Polocrosse World Cup Tournament is in with a chance of being crowned Queensland Event of the Year.
Polocrosse president Les Fraser said he was excited to see the sport recognised at such a high level.
“To think our event, run in Warwick by volunteers, is recognised in the same league as some of the best events in the world is just amazing,” Mr Fraser said.
The event required volunteers to spend hundreds of thousands of hours in preparation.
Robyn Fraser expertly balanced budgets and invoiced, shouldering the responsibility of millions of dollars.
“She has been involved in the club for 46 years and she has been absolutely instrumental,” Mr Fraser said.
“It’s a massive job and she’s done it for all three world cups and for all the major events.
“We have what is probably the best polocrosse facility in the world, here, and a lot of that success is due to her.”
Mrs Fraser has been nominated for the Queensland Volunteer of the Year.
Mr Fraser was nominated for the Queensland Service to Sport Award.
