Carnival is around corner for Monto Polocrosse Club
POLOCROSSE players from all around Queensland will soon gallop to the North Burnett for Monto Polocrosse Club's annual carnival.
Club secretary Robert Ogle said the April 30 and May 1 event was one not to be missed.
"It's just great family entertainment and there will be a great atmosphere, and it is free admission," he said.
"The competition caters for all ages, with players from about seven to 70, but really you can play as long as you can ride a horse.
"We have the carnival on every year."
Gates to the field will open at 9am on the Saturday and 8am on the Sunday.
The playing area, located next to the Monto Airport, has been in the works to get it into top condition for the about 100 players that are expected to attend.
"The nominations close on April 28 so we won't know until then the exact number of players we'll have."
Despite the fact that Monto is hosting the carnival, no locals will be playing but there will be a couple of out-of-town players representing the club.
"If anyone is interested in Monto in playing future events, they can contact me and we will organise practice days," Ogle said.
"The polocrosse season will go until about September."
St Therese Catholic Primary School Monto Parents and Friends Club will be doing catering at the weekend event.
