Park a sea of colour as stall opens
MORGAN Park will be glistening with flecks of bright green and royal blue from tomorrow as the Barastoc Polocrosse Nationals merchandise stall opens its doors.
All merchandise was bought from local businesses, and Warwick Polocrosse Club treasurer Robyn Fraser said she wouldn't have it any other way.
"We've been established for 59 years and we're here for the long haul, so we go local as much as we can," Mrs Fraser said.
"To get the support of the town we need to support their businesses."
Hats, shirts and vests were supplied by Warwick Screen Printers and Embroiders and range from $8 for stubby coolers.
Caps are $19, shirts are $45 and vests are $69.
"The ladies at Warwick Screen Printers and Embroiders are working until midnight to finish the embroidery," Mrs Fraser said.
The logo for the merchandise was designed by Therese Donovan.
The merchandise shop is open from 9am-3pm tomorrow until Sunday, and 9am-5pm next week.
But it's not just the merchandise that has been sourced locally.
All meat is from Carey Bros, fruit and vegetables from Percy's Fruit and Veg, canteen supplies from Southwest Wholesales, pies, bread and savouries from Steele's Bakery, alcohol from the Horse and Jockey Motel, horse feed from Olsen's Produce, milk, juice and water from Ken and Louise Perk at Norco, chicken from Red Rooster, eggs from Williams Egg Farm and cigarettes from Mayfair Casket Agencies. If you'd like to get your hands on some swanky merchandise, head down to Morgan Park and lose yourself in the thunder of hooves and the cracking of sticks.
