FAR NORTH OUTBACK COMMUNITY GROUP SHINES
The Marla Race Gymkhana Club was one of the winners at the recent SA Great Regional Awards held in Port Augusta.
The Club was recognised for their outstanding efforts in the hosting the Marla Bronco Branding, despite years of drought.
It was a great honour for a small Club from such a remote location to receive the Westpac Community Group Award for the Flinders/Outback region.
According to Club President, Mr. Alan Fennell of Lambina Station, the award is a great boost for the morale of the small Committee, especially as the Club is now hosting the National Bronco Branding Finals in 2009. “It’s a really big job to put on such as good event, and everyone always works hard. Getting an award like this proves that we’re doing a good job.”
The National Bronco Branding Finals will be held in Marla on Anzac Day Long Weekend 2009, and will feature a dawn service on Saturday morning before the commencement of the National Finals, as well as playgroup, live music and novelty events for the whole family.
If anyone would like more information about the National Bronco Branding Finals or would like to participate in the event, please contact Gillian Fennell on (08) 86701071.
