Carnival kicks off to a great start
THE Vic Jensen 11 Years Rugby League Carnival kicked off yesterday with the first four games of the week-long carnival being played.
Stanthorpe Sports Association local sports coordinator Michael Jensen said day one of the carnival had been a success.
"We have 136 players from the eight teams playing," he said. "And about 500-700 people visiting as a result."
Jensen said day one feedback had been positive.
"One lady said she wished all sports carnivals were so well organised," he said. "A lot of time and effort has gone into this.
"All money raised is going towards the dressing shed project."
